    It appears that the folks who watch Fox couldn’t care less about the NBA Finals. Give me Fox or I shall commit seppuku with this shiny blade fashioned out of Glenn Beck’s personal stash of gold.

  • I am Level 8

    Poor Anderson Cooper. At least ratings are down across the board.

  • d.d.

    Ah, Gabriel. You have quite the way with words. I really watch very little TV(except for Beck by RBC cable), &, of what I do watch , 0% is basketball.


    Tidying up from the last room…

    @Scroll the Troll
    We don’t have a true voter ID law you can still vote with a utility bill but it is placed on a provisional list.

    We’ve not been spared from the DOJ though. Gibson guitar is just one example.

    – – –

    I thought Gibson Guitar was a Nashville company. If you live in TN, we now have photo ID with provisional ballot allowed for 48 hours. You must provide photo ID in that time frame for vote to count.

    Drug testing for welfare programs was passed in May of this year.

    TEA is the main teachers union , but, there are several others . They cannot collectively bargain but they have collaborative input with school officials,, yes ,we are a RTW state, thank goodness.


    Study: Liberals Leading Haters of Mormonism

    American liberals are the new face of anti-Mormonism, according to a new study by American National Election Studies (ANES).

  • Matthew

    “Drug testing for welfare programs was passed in May of this year.”

    Oh, good! I’m sure it’ll save as much money in your state as it’s saved in ours. And bonus points if the majority of the drug testing is being performed by the corporation that your governor co-founded, and used to be the CEO of. Hahaha, nothing corrupt or fishy about that, love my f*cking governor,


  • michael papaleo

    The liberal media is corrupt. They have been that way for 40 years. I am a conservative but if the all the news was slanted to the right I would not pay any attention to it. Fox News is one small cable station that does have many conservatives on there shows. I take what the opinion shows say on Fox with a grain of salt. There hard news appears to be straight forward. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, THE NEW YORK TIMES, TIME MAGAZINE, NEWSWEEK, POLITICO and countless others are nothing more than the propaganda machine for the left. The way they cover the news is criminal. I can give you examples of bias everyday. I do not want news slanted to my point of view. “Just the facts maam”

  • Rod D

    Michael Eric Dyson drew decent numbers subbing for Ed.

    Ezra Klein not so well as Rachel’s fill-in host.

  • betty

    Whoever is the dude who blogs here regarding the Higher Ratings that the
    Alphabet networks have compared to FOX….those Networks have been on since the Stone Age, while FOX for only a couple years…so, no contest.

  • Matthew

    “Alphabet networks have compared to FOX….those Networks have been on since the Stone Age, while FOX for only a couple years…so, no contest.”

    Sixteen years is not “a couple years,” but yes, the comparison is stupid.

  • mike

    I do not know what is worse the empty suits or the empty skirts in the liberal media. They go about there business telling half the story, distorting the truth and sometimes when need be outright lying. They are a political party. They are the liberal media party and there goal everyday is to further liberalism.

    I do not blame the democrats. The liberal media is a nice poodle to have. President Obama gains at least 5% to 10% points by having them in his pocket. They attacked Bush every day for eight years. Poor George he could not get out of his own way. Unlike Reagan he was an easy target for these vultures. They love President Obama and they will do anything to protect him and his power. The liberals in the media as well as President Obama want 5 liberals on the Supreme Court so they do not have to legislate liberalism anymore. They can just sue and have the court impose liberalism on everyone.
    I am a conservative but I do not think conservatives are always right. If the liberal media were at least fair I would listen to both sides of an argument but because I know there not I discount everything that they report.

  • suikostinger

    Mike and Michael Papaleo. Two brand new people posting. Both with the “Mike” name. Both that say there instead of they’re or their…..

    Yup, nothing fishy there…

  • mike

    If you are refering to my comment about FOX begining a small cable station. I think you are missing the point. Fox is railed against by all these liberals but it stands alone as the only station that is not currupted by liberal politics.

    I did not mean to demean FOX. They are an amazingly successful network. I am a huge fan. They have succeeded while the old media is slowly dying. The old media CBS, NBC, and the like are still reaching and infulencing millions of people nightly.

  • mike

    Mike is mike papaleo the same guy. I am new to this (an old guy 50). I shortened it to mike only because I saw everyone using there first name. Don’t be to hard on me us old people didn’t grow up with computers.

  • Jeff

    Gr8 show by Al Sharpton on the witch hunt by Senate Republicans today.
    There conduct is mortifying, but not surprising with a black man in the hot seat.

    So glad Holder stood up to them, looked em in the eyes and said I have no intention of resigning.

  • Jeff

    50 is not old Mike.

    John McCain is old, he thinks an IPad is something a woman puts on her Xbox. ;) :lol:

  • mike

    Ok, I am not taking the time to watch my grammer. Besides I have that ADD or it could have been the twenty years I smoked pot I’m not really sure. seventeen years clean.

  • mike

    You liberals. Why do you keep troting out that old racism card. People just don’t care about someones color anymore. Unless they are trying to use that as a shield against being accused of wrong doing.

    Do you know Al Sharpton’s history? I could tell you if you want to know.

  • DB

    boy suiko, I bet you feel really stupid but I am sure you will apologize to Mike who was just trying to fit in.

    Mike, welcome and don’t worry about a typo or grammar mistake, everyone does it occasionally. The only one who cares is suiko and nobody cares that he cares. Join in as much as you would like. BTW, 50 is definitely not old, a bunch of us on here have you beat by a mile.

  • DB

    Hey suiko, did you catch Jeffie’s use of there when he meant their. Wow what a horrible mistake (sarcasm). Actually his biggest mistake was watching Sharpton. BTW, Jeffie you never told us what language it is that Sharpton speaks.

    Also, Mike, don’t worry about not growing up with computers. As you have already seen, many on here didn’t grow up at all.

  • usnretiredx2

    I do listen to FOX from time to time and I am not really into sports. After 27 years of either have to get up around 2am to watch or already know the score while watching I grew out of it. Not saying I am down with sports. Having 3 boys in baseball and football from age 6 to 18 and one daughter in softball where I went to every game and pratice that I was in country for I have gotten my fill and would rather spend the time with the better half or on a ride.

  • mike

    Thanks, everyone wants to fit in. As for grammer police I will try to watch it next time. I got to go and I”ll be back
