    Hillbilly, well said to Jim about Jeff in friday’s ratings posts. You of course received the same inane, name calling drivel in response. Still waiting for either Jeffie or Stevie to reply to your dismantling of them re: the Bill Maher ratings. Like you said, run and hide when caught in a lie.

    Funny how someone with so much to say about Fox and how bad it is knows so little about the network. He can’t name one liberal on Fox. Here is some help Jeffie but from now on try to be informed about a topic before you go on one of your rants. Bob Beckel( the Five and Hannity), Alan Colmes, Joe Trippi, Lanny Davis, Kirsten Powers, Anita Jackson(Jesse Jackson’s daughter-may have the first name wrong), Julian Epstein, Bill Shultz, Judith Miller (moderate but leans left) and these are just some of the regulars, Fox also has numerous liberal guests. Hope this helps, now you have a least a little knowledge of a topic you pretend to be an expert on.

  • DB

    Tony, Hannity is an opinion show and I am referring to Shep’s straight news cast at 7:00 EST. Big difference in the two. Hannity is a rightie but not sure he is any more biased than Ed Shultz, Chris Mathews, Al Sharpton or Lawrence O’donnel or Rachel. Of course bias is in the eye of the beholder. Can’t compare Hannity and Shep’s programs when discussing bias.

  • Suikostinger

    and every single one of those liberals are talked over and is at least 2v1 when they go onto Fox. FAIR AND BALANCED huh DB? Heck, Oreilly used to just cut their mics off. But, I will say at least they HAVE liberals, where as MSNBC NEVER EVER has conservatives. But to say Fox is fair and balanced because they have a few liberals on there is absolutely dumb because they are always talked over and is always at a disadvantage, not counting that the topics are always anti liberal.

  • Jeff


  • Jeff

    Speaker Newt Gingrich was on Al Sharptons program today, msnbc NEVER has a conservative on….?

  • Love Potion 9

    Romney 291 Obozo 247

    Feel the tingle…

  • DB

    suiko, as usual you miss the point entirely. The point was that Jeffie who,like you, hates Fox and rants against them constantly doesn’t know anything about Fox and couldn’t name even one liberal on the network. The fair and balanced discussion had nothing to do with my post. I was just giving Jeffie some information. Now will you admit you missed the point?

    Jeffie, running and hiding!!! Hillbilly really has you pegged.

  • DB

    Jeffie, you watch Al Sharpton? Can you answer the question that has been asked by many– what language is he speaking???

  • UpAndOver

    Al ?…

    When you mix a Rainbow with a Liberal you get a strange sound…

    Bill — The ratings for Squawkbox are terrible, and have been so an increasing % of the time.

    Whoever is calling the shots there just doesn’t get that the investing and trading audience (their core) has had it with their excessive political coverage. Needless to say, there are plenty of other outlets to watch for that!

    Squawk’s audience would be virtually gone by now except that FBN threw in the towel on the AM hour way to early by putting IMUS on, and Bloomberg — a potentially serious competitor — is also including more and more politics.

    Squawk has had numerous viewer complaints about its shift to politics, but has done nothing to hold, let alone win back, its core (and, from the advertising perspective, very desirable) audience.

  • Letmethink

    Stopped watching Shepard Smith also. Tune to Fox Business during his broadcast, Sure wish they would move someone else to his spot.

    What a rough debut in the cable news ratings section!
    12 hours later, ‘Rachel Maddow Show’ delivered 195K in P2+ with 76K viewers in 25-54.
    ‘Now with Alex Wagner’ airs at noon ET on weekdays.

    Whoever is in charge at CNN, please get rid of early start/Starting point. They suck. Even second tier news HLN beats these two programs every single day. Please get rid of Christine Romans. She sucks too.

  • Steve Perry

    @Raz…”Got to watch The Five on Monday for the first time, meaning I finally got a day off from work to see it. I like it. It’s funny yet gives all the various points of view.”

    -Really??? There’s 4 Conservatives against 1 Liberal…so much for Fox being ‘fair & balanced’. I mean I could see 3 vs 2 but 4 vs 1…come on seriously?! The show is a complete farce…to say the least.

  • Hillbilly

    Ratboy – Ok Billhilly, Grab your hound and lets get the heck out of here!!!


    Stop talking dirty. :oops:

  • Hillbilly


    Don’t let the low summer time ratings for The Five lull you into a false sense of security. Your Bentley will be my Bentley before the convention. :grin:

  • Steve Perry

    @REM…”new poll in Iowa Romney 46 O 45
    Obama is toast Romney in a landslide
    Obama is losing his base
    Obama concession speach will be fun to watch”

    -OMG, Obama is down 1 point in IOWA according to some poll…what are we going to do? Should we call President Obama and just tell him to stop right now because according to this poll and Raz, Romney is going to win by a landslide…what do we do? LMAO

    -Oh and by the way, most polls have a margin of sampling error that is +/- 3 percentage points. Rasmussen is even higher with a margin of sampling error at +/- 4.5 percentage points.

  • Hillbilly


    I don’t know why you waste your time with some. Faith3 & Boss1 will debate with some facts. Gabriel & Matthew have never claimed to be liberal. (I think Matthew is an independent) Have no idea what Gabriel is. (I think he supported Ron Paul) They use facts. Off the top of my head can’t think of any other non right-wingers who try to have a civil debate. If i missed any my apologies. Can’t forget Boris. He will use big words to insult me. ;)

    P.S. I’m not saying the left are the only ones here who spew propaganda & won’t back it up when challenged.

  • Maggie

    Hannity is not a newscast…it is a commentary. News is suposed to be unbias. Commentary like Hannity, O’Reilly etc is by nature slanted toward the commentator.

  • Davey Boy

    Raz, if you go to The Five On Fox (fans) page to live blog with other fans while the show is in progress it really gets fun. Keep in mind this is not the website they advertise while the show is on.
