    Let the spittle-spewing begin. Fox News-Hater Wingnuts are funny.


    I used to joke that Osama bin Laden was probably hiding out all these years at MSNBC, since nobody ever looks there for anything. The latest cable TV ratings bear this out. Fox News is killing everybody, taking the top 13 places in the ratings. Turns out that even re-runs of the O’Reilly Factor do better than MSNBC’s best show.

    [​IMG]


    Two notes: Fox typically does better in election years, so look for their numbers to swell as we approach November. Along with it, listen for the wailing of the Left about how awful this is; it will probably reach North Korean dimensions. Second, Fox Business shows are at the bottom of the ratings heap. It never really has taken off as a rival to CNBC. In some cases it may be because the channel is not carried by a local cable system? I’m not sure.

    Meanwhile, if you want a good yuck, check out the Thrills McMatthews Twitter feed, described as someone who “Sold my soul to the devil in past life and now forced to serve eternity as an msnbc intern.” It contains gems such as:

    #MSNBC brass told me to wish the 99% a very Mao-y Christmas.

    Just got a card from Andrea @Mitchellreports wishing me a “Fair & Evenly Distributed Non-Specific Holiday”

    Awkward moment in #msnbc newsroom after @AlexWagner &@RichardWolffeDC showed up wearing the same hemp skirt.

    That's hardly anything to celebrate Paulbot, the same organization that is gearing up for the most horrendous smear campaign in history has included Ron Paul as a target but by all means continue to celebrate the media arm of the Romney campaign.

    Fox News argued in court they have a Constitutional right to lie and call it news. If you completely make something up, it's not news, it's entertainment.

    In short, Fox "News" is an entertainment channel not a news channel. Comparing Maddow to O'Reilly is like comparing 60 Minutes to Two and a Half Men.

    Ron Paul appears on Fox all the time. They show him far more respect than CNN & NBC do. Saw him on Neil Cavuto the other day. Saw him on Stossel and the Judge's shows recently too. However i do agree with you somewhat. The MSM in general cannot allow Ron Paul to win. The MSM is controlled by the Socialists/Progressives & Neocons. The Status-Quo will never give up power easily. The Socialists/Progressives & Neocons are clearly working together to smear the Good Doctor. Unfortunately,that's what a Two-Party System is all about. Above all,defend the Status Quo.

    Meh. It's more indicative of the type of person inclined to watch cable news than anything else.

    And the people who hate Fox News are the same kooks who get their News from Whoopie Goldberg farts on The View. So spare me all the high-horse shyte all you GE/NBC nutters. Not buying it.

    Um, you are aware of the fact that TV ratings are neither scientific nor accurate; to attempt to extrapolate, for example, that a majority of Americans are ‘conservative’ and agree with ‘conservative’ dogma because Fox has higher ratings is ignorant and idiotic.

    Fox is entertainment, not news – viewers tune in for reaffirmation, not information.

    GE still owns roughly half of NBC. And they have owned NBC for years. Shame on this President for making GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt his "Jobs Czar." GE has Outsourced countless American Jobs over the years. And they don't pay Taxes either. So how the Hell can Jefrrey Immelt be his "Jobs Czar?" It's beyond crazy. It's blatant corrupt Cronyism.

    They own less than half. They do not control NBC. Period.

    This is a complete lie.

    They control plenty of it. And they always have. The only jobs Jeffrey Immelt has created are Chinese Jobs. He should be forced out as "Jobs Czar."

    Fox is the one I trust. They at least give you both sides of the story and tells you things that other news cast wont and they will criticize obama instead of making him look like a rock star. Shep being my favorite anchor because he puts fun in his news cast!!

    Hate the truth? :eusa_eh:

    The fact that really, really, really stupid people like Lovebears trust Fox doesn't bother me. It is what it is.

    Are you really saying that most of the MSM doesn't treat Obama like he's a Saint? Because i see very few in Media ever criticizing him. In fact i usually see just the opposite. Lots & lots of that cheereading worship stuff. And this is obviously especially true at CNN & NBC.

    What is the average age of Fox viewers? Like 90?

    Sponge Bob Square Pants gets more viewers than Fox and even end up better informed.

    What this shows is not how great Arab owned Fox is, but how pathetic American viewership of politics is.

    Republicans could prop up a dead guy and Americans wouldn't notice until a week before the elections.

    Most Americans are at work for 8 to 10 hours a day. Then they go home and spend time with their families. If America was a little more focused on what Republican were doing, the Republicans would have zero credibility. You can't just lie all the time and get away with it. Pretty soon, like with the boy who cried wolf, everyone stops listening.
