    HLN’s broadcast of the Daytime Emmy Awards on Saturday did wonders. The repeat on Sunday, not so much.
    FBN had good ratings in primetime demo.

    MSNBC does better with repeats of their prison shows than they do with there live talking heads.

    Hey everyone,

    I had a late start and wanted to comment on one point from Friday’s postings.

    Italian Mike,
    First, welcome to the site. You said you are from CT? I’m from MA so we are neighbors.

    “The whole Middle East may choose Iran style theocracies we just don’t know yet.”

    “Iran style theorcracies”….you mean like Iraq and Afghanistan? Both constitutions include Sharia law and both very much came with Bush’s approval. I’m having a hard time understanding why people are nervous about Egypt and women’s rights when Sharia law is already a main source of legislation under law of personal status. Although, some things have changed over time, the law still is not very free to women and their particular rights. Men still can determine much of their fate in personal matters. Also, one of America’s most beloved the ‘Saudi’s’ have one of the strictest interpretation of Sharia law. That hasn’t stop our presidents from shying away from them and lecturing them on the virtues of democracy.

    My reasoning that presidents of all political stripes past and present don’t mind is it has very little to how the people of these countries are treated. Afterall, the US help overthrow democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh in Iran and help give power to Shah Pahlavi for the next 26 years. It mostly has to do with foreign policy and what any particular leader of said country will do for neoliberal policies. That really is the bottom line. We’ve had dictators as our allies and that really speaks volumes and there is logic behind it even though it is not something people really want to hear or at least is taboo to discuss.

    I saw that Mike. Who in the world enjoys watching people in prison. Although they may deserve it, it is so very sad and why profit from the misery of others. That also says a lot about the talking heads on MSNBC. I do watch Morning Joe some because occasionally they do talk about obamas failures. Lately—not so much—too much spin so change the channel pretty quickly.

    MSNBC is nothing more than The Obama White House Press Room consisting of children that just graduated from their student body political clubs and burned out 60’s hippies and long-retired civil rights losers. For those that continue to defend this pathetic network and their hilarious bunch of clowns are just fellow miserable morons that love the company. Keep up the good work to no avail and when the Network inevitably dies, so will you. Nite, nite…

    MSNBC. I can’t stand that martin bashur m this liberal station

  • Ralph Hahn

    FNC should do better Sunday nights in the demo.
