    Oh the Madcow has done it again...she just spent 5 minutes highlighting Fox News and the hiring of Sarah Palin. Why do the underdog news networks keep pointing focus at the one cable news powerhouse that keeps kicking their ass?

    She's just hideous. No wonder MSNBC's numbers are at a subzero level.

    But it was alright for Fox to talk about it all day?
    And didn't Fox News do this so people would be talking about it?

    DNCNBC hack "news" reporters have been bashing Faux News for years now, and their ratings are still in the dumper.

    Insanity.

    You seem to miss the point. FOX is expected to talk about themselves. They have NOTHING to lose...and it's self promotion...But in media, where I spent 20 years in the industry, it's almost always a taboo to constantly draw attention to a competing station, network, channel, etc. You might as well be saying, change the channel to FOX...because they have THIS going on. When that happens, they lose even more viewers. It's the dumbest thing you can do when your already losing the ratings war with them.

    From what I've seen, they're not obsessive about it.

    F'rinstance, nobody at Fakes News regularly and prominently features members of competing outfits as "worst persons in the world" on a daily basis.

    Bill O'Reilly loves to talk shit about NBC and MSNBC but I agree that FOX is the news station most talked about by others.

    And Hannity never talks about Olberman?

    I would also add if we go by Longhorn's point of view, Hasselbeck sure likes to advertise for Olberman on the view. :D

    I'll have to take your word for it....O'Reilly makes me want to throw the teevee out a window.
