    john king is the best lead in consistently.

  • b

    The competition between CNN and MSNBC should be exciting from now until who gets cancelled first…

  • Dave

    Oh my, MSDNC. Lefties continue to be depressed about Wisconsin this past Tuesday and that Obama sucks.

  • Ratboy

    Hannity and Greta are about the onlyu one holding his numbers close! OReilly was off last night so his were down.

    So you add up from Sharpie to Larry O in the key demo (773) compared to OReilly with a sub, Hannity, and Greta (1188) 5 hours agains 3 hours!

  • Ratboy

    None of the MessDNC hit 200k in the key demo!

  • Mike

    Interesting that O’Reilly’s replacement at 11p.m. beat Ed’s combined numbers. Says a great deal about the quality of his show. Democrats and Liberals must be dying with BO’s comments today that “the private sector is doing fine.” It really reflects BP’s innate distrust of the private section and his complete lack of understanding that it’s the private sector is the ‘jobs generator’ and not the public sector.

    And it was Laura Ingrahm and she is pretty annoying to many!!! :lol:

  • Ratboy

    Cocaine Cowboys beat Ed, Chris, and Al in the key demo :lol: :lol:

    Obama says private sector ‘doing fine,’

    Standard & Poor keeps downgrade, negative outlook…

    Obama Denies National Security Leaks, New York Times Denies Taking Dictation

    RUSH: At Obama’s little press gaggle today at the White House, an unidentified reporter stood up, said, “There are a couple of books out with interesting details about national security issues. There are reports of terrorist Kill Lists that you’ve supervised. There are reports of cyberattacks on Iranian nuclear programs that you’ve ordered.” That would be Stuxnet. “First of all, what’s your reaction to this information getting out in public, and, secondly, what is your reaction to lawmakers that accuse your team of leaking these details in order to promote your election?”

    OBAMA: The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national security information is offensive. It’s wrong, and, you know, people, I think, need to have a better sense of how I approach this office and how the people around me here approach this office. And we’re dealing with issues that can touch on the safety and security of the American people, our families, or our military personnel, or our allies. And so we don’t play with that.

    And in this story, even The Politico, which is a White House stenographer unit, even The Politico is forced to admit that it’s pretty obvious what’s going on, since even the White House isn’t complaining about the leaks. Have you noticed that? The only people complaining about it are on Capitol Hill and the general public. Democrat Senators along with Republican Senators are complaining about it. They’re very unhappy about it, but the White House isn’t complaining. Here’s a takeout from The Politico story: “But the fact that the White House has not raised complaints about the Times’ reports further stokes congressional concern that the administration was somehow involved in leaking the stories. Baquet rebutted those accusations, saying his reporters came by the stories ‘strenuously.’ ‘I can’t believe anybody who says these are leaks,’ he said. ‘Read those stories. They are so clearly the product of tons and tons of reporting.'”

    RUSH: You know, Lindsey Grahamnesty actually got it right. He was on Greta the other night on Fox. He said, “I don’t think it’s an accident that you have three stories within about 45 days that paint the Obama administration as being effective in the War on Terror — at our national security detriment.” Now, that’s what McCain thinks, too, since Lindsey Grahamnesty said it. So McCain thinks it. He said, “You don’t need Sherlock Holmes to figure this out,” and you don’t.

    RUSH: Nashua New Hampshire, Open Line Friday. Steve, I’m glad you called. Welcome to the program.

    CALLER: Oh, yeah, hi, Rush. I happened to be listening to NPR last night. I don’t make a regular habit of doing it, but I just had it on the car radio. And they had the author —

    RUSH: Wait, wait, wait. Why couldn’t you change the channel in the car?

    CALLER: I could, but the reason I left it on is because they were talking about the Obama administration being tough on national security, and I was curious to what their position was on it.

    RUSH: See, okay, okay. What did you hear?

    CALLER: All right. So they had the author on, and he wrote this new book about how tough the Obama administration is, surprisingly, on national security, including discussion or a chapter on the cyberattacks, like in Iran. And the program host precisely was concerned about leaking national security secrets, and the hostette, the author, “Aren’t you concerned about that?” And the author said, “Oh, well, that was okay.” They specifically went to the Obama administration official, and they gave it the okay for the information that he put in the book, that he released. So therefore, regardless even if the information didn’t come from the Obama administration and they somehow got it on their own, they went to the Obama administration, and the Obama administration okayed, according to this author, the specific release of that information or else he would never have released it.

    RUSH: All right, Steve, I appreciate it. I just got an e-mail from my good friend Professor Hazlett. He’s a good friend of mine that I met back in Sacramento when I was there in 1985, I think — no, might have met Professor Hazlett later in the year, 1984. But certainly 1985. He said, “Rush, I just listened to the Obama clip that you played where he said that it’s offensive to suggest that his administration’s leaking. Now, how can he know that the suggestion is offensive unless he knows who’s leaking?” I mean if you were president, and you didn’t know where the leaks were coming from, wouldn’t you want to ferret out the leaker right now? But how do you know to be offended? Unless you know who’s leaked. You can’t possibly be offended by this unless you know who the leaker is.

    And then he makes these points. Here’s what the public knows. One, there are abundant national security leaks. Two, the regime has the ability to create such leaks. Number three, the regime has motive to create such leaks, make Obama look macho and all that. And number four, the regime is not doing anything to stop these leaks, like appoint a special prosecutor. Instead they’re trashing people who are making a reasonable inference after reviewing the evidence. Now, the New York Times, how can they know that the original source for their secret classified documents is not Obama? How can they know that? In fact, the source for the leak has to be either the Obama administration or the Pentagon. It has to be one of the two. If it’s the Pentagon, somebody over there needs to be fired. If it’s the Obama regime, then Obama has to come clean with the American people, and somebody, or maybe a lot of people, deserve to be fired.

    The min I saw it was Laura I turned it to netflix

  • Nick

    These CNN ratings are depressing… lol

  • Mike

    @ Ratboy and NEWAVESUCK:
    All the more ironic that O’Reilly’s replacement (Laura Ingraham) beat out Ed: didn’t Ed call Laura a ‘slut’ last year. Revenge can be delicious.

  • UpAndOver

    The only thing that Ed can ‘beat’ is __ _____.

    Think about it…..

  • Joey

    …The private sector is doing fine..(later) ..Let me be perfectly clear, the private sector is not doing fine….God, it’s even worst than I thought, 3 and a half wasted years of screwing around with us..I mean the only record he can stand on is his handling of anti-terrorism policies which George Bush put in place,Gitmo is getting an upgrade for God’s sake..what an F@#*ing joke this guy is, and a great portion of America (Hollywood) kisses ass and will bark like a dog while hopping on one leg for him.
