    Why are CNN ratings considered SO bad? It beats CNBC, HLN, and FOX Business in all of the target demos.

  • curt

    Someone make a mercy rule for CNN please. Anderson cooper really, 304,000 at 8 p.m.?

  • curt

    Check again Nick, AC360 lost demos to HLN.

    “Obama’s problem is not that his message is ‘muddled.’ The problem is his message is all too clear! This is what always does the left in.” -Rush Limbaugh

  • LBSLES

    I’ll tell you, there is panic out there, folks. I’ve been telling you I don’t know how many months now, there’s real panic. There is panic over two things. The Bain attack on Romney isn’t working. And all of these Democrat consultants and all the Democrat cable TV hosts and the Democrat media people, they are beside themselves. It isn’t working. They are also very worried that Obama is doubling down on it now in the midst of it not working. He’s doubling down on it, amidst stories we’ve now got a private equity Democrat backer for Obama who’s leaving him. Rush Limbaugh

  • LBSLES

    One of his primary campaign managers, the former mayor of Denver, Pena, is in private equity, big Democrat. He is buying companies and he’s laying people off. He’s doing everything Obama is accusing Romney of having done. He’s doing it as we speak. He’s a private equity guy. He runs Obama’s campaign in the West or some such thing. It’s backfiring on them left and right, and the Democrat consultants and the media people can’t believe Obama let it go. They ran into Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz and they asked her about it. She said there is no plan B. Our plan is to attack Mitt Romney as an evil capitalist when he ran Bain. There is no plan B. …Rush Limbaugh

    “If socialism was so popular, it wouldn’t have to be imposed and maintained at the point of a gun all over the world. If socialism was so popular, it wouldn’t require dictatorship to enforce it.” -Rush Limbaugh

  • LBSLES

    “Given Obama’s recent speeches, maybe this Memorial Day we ought to especially remember all of our soldiers who died defending capitalism and the freedom that capitalism has brought us — all of our soldiers who have died fighting communism, all of our soldiers who have died fighting National Socialism. It’s more than just a day off.” -Rush

    Hurricane Forecast Disappoints Liberals

  • LBSLES

    Solar-Powered Airplane Cost $100 Million

  • LBSLES

    And has three seats ad the floor and walls are covered with rubber.

    @Curt
    I meant with the primetime and total day averages.

  • Mark

    @LBSLES

    “Hurricane Forecast Disappoints Liberals”

    This makes absolutely no sense. Who made this up?

  • suikostinger

    @Mark

    You are really going to ask someone who posts like he/she does a REAL question? WHAT!?!?

  • Joan

    The Titanic has nothing on msnbc numbers. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving Waco network :)

  • Matthew

    Between some of LBSLES empty posts, and the fact that he occasionally posts link-less spam about completely off topic things like shrimp sales at Whole Foods and deals going on at Burger King, I’m practically convinced he’s running some kind of spam bot program part of each day.
