    oh ratings shmatings.

    Half of their ratings prolly come from KO showing clips from fox news so peeps have to go see if they really are that stupid, and that gets em another ratings point.

    The other half is from peeps that really need a good laugh so they go watch the circus freaks and dont really care that it gives fox another ratings point'

    whatever cant be explained by that is prolly explained by all the kooks like the lady John Mccain had to call down at one of his campaign rallies that has a tv in every room tuned to Fox News so she doesnt miss a single word they are saying.

    fair? you are speaking as if there was some sports game being played and one side only got one player total. This is free market media. You don't say things are unfair when you are the only one in your high school class to get a question wrong on an exam. Sometimes a belief is in the minority because it's just plain dumb.

    The libs have never been able to understand the difference between the opinion shows on Fox (O'Reilly, Hannity) and the news programs (Chris Wallace, Shep Smith). They then follow all the usual talking points from their Huff post, MSNBC or Daily Kos masters and regurgitate it on message boards daily.

    Looks like someone's mad that there's a network that refuses to go along with the mass, lefty media BS that sadly blankets this nation.

    Get over it, and look in a mirror for sheep.

    News flash sparky!!!! You have just been told the only "news" you need to know. This has been a public service provided by the members of USMB. Just because you don't like the news doesn't make it wrong. You are an idiot. You don't have a clue why Fox shows you what they do. You don't have a clue why the other chanels show what they show. I don't have the time nor the inclination to explain it all to you. Serious people do not get thier "news" from any of the chanels you listed. You are not serious. You are a chump. For all the blather you re report about what you see on the TV you might as well be telling us all what you saw on QVC. Or..Survivor..Or...some stupid sit com. Hey wasn't 2 and a half men a hoot!!!! Did you see how funny it was??? How could you tell pea brain... they played the canned laughter and you howled like a monkey. They could play a beheading with canned laughter and you would laugh your dumb ass off.

    No one watches FOX for news. Their "News" ratings are much lower than CNN. People watch FOX for those "entertainers".

    That's because most reasonable people want to hear supporting evidence to someone's claim, such as those things called facts, with attributes such as accuracy. This is what news programs are generally meant to provide. Contrast that with opinion shows that are not necessarily based on facts or accuracy, but put forth as factual nonetheless. Because let's face it: people who can't think critically have a hard time telling the difference.

    So what's the end result? Well, I'm currently wiping the floor with someone else in another thread because he believes HIS opinion should be of some value, despite it being completely unsupported by any evidence whatsoever. These opinion shows propagate the idea that it's perfectly reasonable to push an opinion regardless of its accuracy. And dumb Americans lap it up. Snake oil for sale.

    It's great that smarter people such as yourself are able to distinguish news programs from opinion shows, but don't extend that insight to others.

    Actually, to be fair, by that time he was saying he did not recall...and he was probably right.
