I've done away with the data table at the bottom of this chart as well, allowing a much larger time scale and a longer term trend picture.

    I just finished watching Keith O. on “Countdown” Wednesday March 5th segment.
    He branded Bill O. as the worser and worst person in the world and it was totaly imbecilic. Did anyone see this because I need some help here. I may be stupid so can any one of you saw this segment enlighten me why Bill O. is the “Worst Person in the World” ? Remember, we are saying the worst person IN THE ENTIRE WORLD ! Think. We have North Korea, Iran, Code Pink in Berkeley… but a white guy hosting a competing cable program IS THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD !!

    Again, let me remind people. MSNBC is part of the Global conglomerate G.E. I've just done a recent review of the annual report which states a loss from MSNBC as well as NBC. Which brings me to the conclusion, this is a write-off for G.E. because of the high burden they pay in U.S. corporate tax.G.E. is making headway however in the Global Eco servicing! I suggest they can plant Herr Olbermann in the rain forests and fertilize him and see if that will stop global warming?

    Jerry – You are saying that Keith O. is a negative asset which is beneficial to the GE conglomerate which needs unprofitable intiities
    for write off purposes ? They are not interested in Keith O. (nor MSNBC) in being successful and profitable because it hurts them in being able to off set the positive assets and avoid higher corporate tax
    liability ? If I have not stated it correctly, please correct me.

    I watched Keith O. tonight (March 6th). Yeah, I know better, but my wife asked me how I knew FOX was better since I never watched any other channel. Since then, I occasionally tune to CNN and MSNBC just to make my point. Tonight, Keith O. Bragged about how Britt H.'s show was the lowest ratted of the three. WOW, one time so it makes news on PMSNBC! That makes Keith O. “The WORST, WORSTER AND WORSTEST IN THE WORLD”! According to 'un-named sources', that is!

    ED, you gotta be kidding me !
    Olbermann's “views are no different” than all the other networks ???!! Do you WATCH any of the other networks? NOBODY says the things that Keith Olbermann says on his show. NO OTHER news guy with his own show says what Olbermann says because Keith is allowed to state his opinion like the guys on Fox do — but the other network announcers at CNN, ABC, etc.are not allowed to do that.

    It's a tragedy that people think the media have a liberal bias just cause conservative propagandists keep screaming that they do. I have dozens of newspaper articles from regular daily papers like the USA Today, Associated Press articles from large and small newspapers across the country that PROVE that TV news has NEVER TOLD US THE TRUTH About:
    1)2000 Election
    2)the Enron scandal and 2001-04 Recession
    3)Abu Ghraib prison scandal
    4) Hurricane Katrina (CNN started to, then they cut off the live interview with the National Guard guy when he said something too shocking)
    5) Iraq War and U.S.-proposed Oil-Sharing Law

    I'm talking about actual facts printed over and over again and usually confirmed by records from the recent Republican congress and/or the Bush administration's own govt. statistics — and this information is COMPLETELY UNKNOWN to most of the American people because the so-called “liberal biased” TV news won't report it………They won't even use the word “Filibuster” (let alone explain what it means) when they talk about what Republicans have been doing in Congress for the past year. I guess Filibuster is a Politically INcorrect word that would Offend Republicans. So hardly anyone knows that they broke the 2-year record for filibusters in less than one year.
    Until the Democrats wise up and start attacking the media for having a pro-Republican bias, people will keep believing the Republican Bullcrap attacks on the media.

    I watch MSNBC everyday but also other news outlets. Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman are too must see hosts. I personally find their views usually correct. I find Fox news disengenuous and usually so slanted that it is worthless. The far right conservatives who rail against most media are wrong on every issue they support. Wrong about taxes, the war, moral issues, health care, etc. They support those of the right who stand for bigotry, ignorance, superstition, jingoism, and above all the right of the top 2 or 3 percent of Americans to have and control 90% of the wealth.
    They stand for greed and against science. Eventually the far right will die off as young people gradually find the truth.
