    That is a pretty significant achievement. Not bad for a Network they said would be gone in just a couple of years.

    The far left says that Fox News lies. I have watched all the channels and I can say that Fox is the most fair of all the other cable news. Shepard Smith is a great anchor and has a great sense of humor and love watching him daily IF they lie so much then why are they always on top in ratings

    If popularity equates to quality, Lady Gaga would be considered the greatest musical influence of all time and Mozart would be forgotten. Congratulations Fox on being the Lady Gaga of news media.

    Hence why they should always be included in discussions about the mainstream media.

    to debunk your rediculous analogy....

    Mozart, centuries later, is still listened to and appreciated by the masses....Lady GaGa will be forgotten in about 5 years and then get recognized the day she dies....and then quickly forgotten again.

    But putting that aside....when it comes to news programs....popularity is based on quality...not by the Network itself.

    Unless, of course, you see Americans as idiots.

    Is that it? Americans are stupid? Except, of course, the ones that agree with you.

    :lol: Just stop lying. You know if she ran as a Democrat, you would be the first dummy at the Polls to vote for her. Do you really think you're fooling anyone? You can hop off your high-horse now.

    Popularity isn't based on quality. Is every popular kid at school a quality student? Is Jersey Shore a quality show? Is Britney Spears a quality singer?

    I don't care about Fox's ratings, I don't watch any of the garbage news channels we have. Just saying popularity doesn't equal quality.

    Don't even bother. That dummy would support Lady Gaga lickety-split if she ran for office as a Democrat. He or she is the kind of dummy who voted for Jerry Springer. He or she is just expressing bitter jealousy in bashing Fox News. It's lame stuff.

    look at what you just said...then lets apply logic to it...

    To kids...popularity is based on the quality of a childs athletic ability, looks, and confidence....as that is what is important to them.

    To late teens early 20's Jersey shore is based on what they see as a quality topic....drinking sex fun and sun....as that is what is important to them

    To Brittany fans...it is (was) based on the quality of her sex appeal...because that is what was important to them

    So what would news watchers base quality on? The quality of the news....becasue that is what is important to them.

    Or do you think there is another reason they watch fox over others?

    I'll use your logic of quality.

    Some think quality is factual reporting of the news.

    Some think quality is having their opinion repeated back to them.

    Some think quality is attacking one party, and propping up another.

    Some think quality is hearing an opposing viewpoint.

    And as a side point, I know people who watch Jersey Shore and admit it's a terrible show it's just entertaining.

    Like I said I don't like any of the news channels, but popular doesn't equal quality, in my opinion at least.

    There are some American who get their "news" from The Daily Show. There are other Americans who do not watch any news media at all. And there are some Americans who wait all day for Springer to come on.

    Who could possibly see Americans as idiots given the depth and width of the information they consume?
