    WOW CNN is getting trashed with the Olympics on…

  • Nick Czar

    CNN remains the joke of cable news surpassed only by MSNBC.

    Both have lost all respect as a news service with their blatant
    bias to the left of Trotsky and the continuing cheerleading for
    the Obama administration.

    The only hope for both MSNBC & CNN is their mass exodus to CURRENT
    TV.

  • Scroll the Troll

    Just for Tony, Lizard Lick Towing beats Rachel and Tingles combined.

  • Former CNN Fan

    OMG, what the hell happened to CNN? Can it be all Olympics? MSNBC and Fox had decent numbers.

  • Former CNN Fan

    CNN’s new strategy…
    1) Build a weather-making machine to create regularly scheduled natural disasters to showcase breaking news coverage.
    2) Start a war in obscure African country and report on it exhaustively. Label it imminent threat to US homeland.
    3) Make fun of Congress – Americans hate them more than the media.

    CNN is waiting for syria to fall. I from what I have watched they are the only ones with repertors inside: plus they show coverage of it all the time:

  • AppleStinx

    Second straight day at #5 place for CNN in Primetime demo. Now also #5 Total Day demo. Under 71K in both. ‘AC360′ #5 at 8pm and getting 50K at 10pm – even ‘Early Start/Starting Point’ had more viewers.
    How is that “non-intentional” song placement working for you so far, CNN?

    I was only stating the obvious. Black people will not vote for the Repub. Candidate but they may stay home because the President has done such a terrible job in the black community.

    Ratboy was pointing out the dumbing down of America. I can only stay on for a few minutes the Kardasians are on.

    Dreamer, let me guess your parents grew up in the sixties. Your brothers and sisters are named Sky, Wind and Rain.

    Go Chick-Fil-A!!!!!!!!!

  • Dreamer

    It is a shame that there is no breakdown between 9 and 5. There are several shows that I would like to see.

  • Dreamer

    @ sicilian
    Actually I grew up in the seventies. And not under a rock.

  • Sicilian Papa

    From all reports Chick-Fil-A is having a monster day. I would be willing to bet my life(I don’t have any money) that the lib. media will not touch this story. My life is pretty safe. I know the liberal media and how they work. There is a 100% chance that they won’t touch the story. They would have a camera in front of every store if the places were empty.

    Just a little harmless jab while I was sitting around day dreaming.

  • Kevin in NC

    So glad Rachel Maddow is back! The smartest cable news tv host and political analyst on TV!

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    Kevin in NC

    I know she does well but I can’t stomach her. When she talks about the unborn she sounds cold, mean, souless and down right goulish.

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    ALL

    I watched Rachel Maddow and Joan Walsh talk about the unborn. My God were these women born without a heart.

  • betty

    I am very happy to see that Gov. John Sununu keeps appearing on the “scene” lately…Sununu takes NO prisoners…they are pairing him with the hapless Juan Williams who always ends up,well, Bewitched,Bothered and Bewildered…
    but that doesn’t make him a bad person., Juan is a nice person.

  • Kevin in NC

    @ Sicilian papa: you stated
    “I was only stating the obvious. Black people will not vote for the Repub. Candidate but they may stay home because the President has done such a terrible job in the black community.

    Ratboy was pointing out the dumbing down of America. I can only stay on for a few minutes the Kardasians are on.”

    Where did you hear that blacks think the president has done a terrible job? WE don’t think that. At least the black people that i know dont think that and i know a lot of black folks from all over the U.S. i have visited several black communities and happen to live in a black community. We celebrate his (President Obama) many successes over his first term and look forward to celebrating even more successes during his second term. BTW, I know many black people who vote for some republican candidates, (my wife included), just not dumbed, far right-leaning radical lunatic republican candidates or filthy rich, out-of-touch candidates that obviously don’t give a damn about the “common person,” not because they are heartless, but because they have never known the common person’s plight and probably never will.

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    Betty

    I couldn’t agree more. Juan is a nice guy and old John is a pretty good advocate for Gov. Romney.

  • betty

    Soooooo…”Whaaa Hoppen? Sharpee, Lowrence, Mr.Edd, Rakhel… going on the
    “down” elevator, that’s Whaaaa Hoppen! LOL

    15% UNEMPLOYMENT

    I don’t have pulse on the black community but I do know that they are loyal to a fault to the Dems. Look at the rate of incarceration for young black males, has that improved under this President. The inner Cities were a lot of black folks live are a mess they haven’t improved. Please tell me about all the successes. What can point to increased Government help. That has worked so well in the past.

    I would argue that things are getting worse for the poorest black folks.
