    @ Joe
    I have a FB page but it is only for keeping tabs on my kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, and other family. I read their stuff and then II get an idea of what they are up to.

    What are you saying? I find Ratboy to be insightful and stimulating. His name is a little odd but he is right 99.9999999999999% of the time.

    So am I a 99er or a 1%er :lol: :lol:

    I am not right that much it just looks that way because the flaws I point out come from other that are just tooooooooo easy to prove wrong!! :lol: :lol:

    Time for this old man to practice for eternity, you know lay down, close my eyes, fold my hands, ………………………..and try not to wet myself!! :shock:

    Good night and for all, Happy 4th of July!!!! Stay safe and have your hose or fire extiguisher close by if you shoot fireworks!!

  • Suikostinger


    Your sources you post are breitbart.com Weeklystandard…..just look at their front page magazine art and you can tell how far right and crazy they are and Mediate…..I need not say more.

  • Suikostinger

    Oh, and Washington Examiner, owned by Philip Anshutz….need I say more? :) Ratboy copies and pastes from those sites, yet yells at people when they post a VIDEO with no editing from Huffpost and Mediamatters….

  • Bruno

    FOX News ratings aren’t that great either looks like people are finally starting to wake up.

  • marina vera

    It must drive CNN and MSNBC crazy that FN doubles and triples their ratings. This is very encouraging since the mainstream media is shamefully in the tank for this administration and consistently lie with no accountability. I believe that Cooper’s “shocking” announcement is due to his ratings continuing to plummet. It was no surprise and the timing is critical. I use to respect CNN.

  • REM

    Bruno, people are on vacation. get a clue

    fox rules
    msnbc drools

  • DB

    suiko, you must be getting tired getting personal with Rat, why don’t you take a rest and let one of your sockpuppets take over? Jessica hasn’t posted for awhile nor has missy or Stevie. Just remember that if you use your alias of Jessica, you need to post as if you’re Jessica not suiko like you did a couple of nites ago. I still think the sockpuppet police are asleep at the switch or maybe they just feel sorry for someone who would make such a blunder. Anyway, give it a rest.

  • DB

    suiko, you have asked a couple of times “need I say more” ? The answer is no!!! Pls say no more.

  • Babygate

    Wow, Fox gets better ratings than all the other networks combined.

    @Bill or Robert
    Can we get the ratings for ‘The Cycle’? It would be interesting to see how this format works in the middle of the news day…

  • Fitzzz

    At 4:00 in the afternoon
    MSNBC has a program on, very much like THE FIVE , I think it’s the best show that network has
    Smart move would be to do away with one Chris Mathews,

    Remember that CPAC kid that the NeoCons loved well…..
    Seems when you grow up abit you might open your eyes

    Actually he became a liberal to date stupid liberal girls….why else would a guy want to be a liberal?

  • Stan T.

    Rachel Maddow beats Fox and Friends. Not bad.

    Wow, a prime time show beats a morning show…and you’re surprised? How does she do agianst her competition? Hannity beats her like a drum.

    Gas prices down compared to historical July prices.

    I keep telling Jeff, RESEARCH THEN post but he just does not catch on!
    hey, ratboy, did you see Mr. Ed? he was bragging on how low the gas prices have gone down, though it’s still double what it was when obama took office…I guess if Mr. Ed watched a news network he would have learned that oil went up about $4 today, and about $10 since Thursday, which means…let’s say it together….gasoline will go up again….poor Mr. Ed…I’m guessing Jeff got his information from the same source as Mr. Ed. lol

  • Stan T.

    man, I’ve had my book’s facebook page since like november or so, and i stil only have 23 likes…that sucks..i need 30 likes so i can get the insights tool back to see if people are showing up, looking and leaving…A like says someone thought it was insightful to a degree, but a visit shows they atleast were curious…my fantasy novel is coming along well too…i’m about half done….rough guess…lol

  • Davey Boy

    I think FOX should move The Five to the 7 p.m. slot and watch their ratings soar when more people are home from work on the east coast and more people may be watching on the west coast.

  • Davey Boy

    I think the Five would get much better numbers in the 7 p.m. slot than Shepard.

  • Suikostinger

    You’re trying too hard again DB.

  • Davey Boy

    @ Suiko
    How so it’s simply my opinion.

  • Davey Boy

    @ Suiko
    Sorry bout that you were talking to someone else. (embarrased)
