    Outfront with Erin Burnett?

    With those ratings, how about showing her the front door?

  • CNN fan

    @Mark
    AMEN!!!!

  • Ratboy

    Larry O took a tumble last night! But hannity is still on fire! I only see him going up as we get closer to the election. a bunch stopped in to laugh at Schultz but Sharpie and Tingles not so much. Looking at this it again boggles my mind as to why MSNBC continues to be happy with the up and down and up and down ratings. They have a business model like none I have ever seen before!

    I wonder how she can look herself in the mirror after getting beat by an Ed Shultz rerun! :shock:

  • CNN fan

    Ratboy –
    True, MSNBC has a long way to go to being competitive with Fox. Right now, MSNBC can hang its hat on kicking the crap out of CNN with half the budget and less household penetration. It may not be Fox wealthy but they can get by for a long time doing whatever they are doing. Its CNN that has some explaining to do to.

  • CNN fan

    Ratboy –

    Haha. I get the impression Burnett never gets tired of looking at herself in the mirror. You think she’s looking into a camera but really they trick her by putting a one way mirror over the camera lens. She’s gullible that way ;)

    Worse yet, how can she live with getting beat by Hardball rerun! Everyday!

  • XYZ

    Wow what the heck happened to CNN yesterday? Or everyday really??

    I tuned in to CNB c last night to watch the NHL game but they were showing American Greed instead. I live in Phoenix could have my cable system Cox blocked the game that was being played in Chicago last night. I check at 9 Pm est and then again at 10 as well. I am confused it was a great game that i was unable to watch.

    Mitt hits back at Obama – born with silver spoon. At least i wasn’t born with Labrador in my mouth..

    @David
    Check out ‘WIZIWAG.TV’ you can get any game you want. I don’t buy the NFL ticket anymore because with wiziwag.tv you can get every NFL,NHL,MLB,NBA games and a lot more live sports from around the world. Most feeds come from the U K.

    “MSNBC’s Martin Bashir has a god complex, says Romney will suffer ‘eternal damnation’

    Another day, another attack on Mitt Romney’s faith. This time it comes from Martin Bashir, who called Romney a liar and said he’d suffer ‘eternal damnation’ for all of his lying. Of course he’s completely wrong – but Glenn also wants to know.”

  • lbsles

    “NYT: Food Deserts don’t exist ”

    “Last night on GBTV Glenn showed how the NYT is exactly correct — food deserts that Michelle Obama worries about do not exist. The Times further discovered that even if they did exist, it has nothing to do with obesity. So why are we spending half a billion dollars on fighting something that doesn’t exist and wouldn’t matter if it did?”
