    LARRY ODONNEL drooled on his close up camera saying MOOCHELLE’S
    convention speech was better that any first lady in the history of the country.
    Holding his microphone in a trembling hand. I’m glad viewers couldn’t see his
    other hand.

    WOW.. I never thought MSNBC could get any worse but with their
    addition of Melissa Harris Perry they are now a certified “BOTTOM
    FEEDER” !

    This shrill race baiter leaves Al Sharpton in the dust and emulates the
    union thug Ed Shultz to a ” T ” absent the multi colored hair dye.

    This woman makes Debbie Wasserman Schultz look almost human.

    Who will join this cable freak show next ? Julian Assaunge ?

    COMCAST CABLE CUSTOMERS take note…your monthly
    stipend to COMCAST keeps these pathetic morons on the air.

  • XYZ

    Wow, MSNBC won Monday AND Tuesday nights…looks like they might be able to sweep the week in prime based on how things are going. Pretty impressive.

    Chuck Norris’ wife warns us of 1000 years of darkness is Obama gets elected


    Honestly I assume 1000 years of darkness is in reference to a passage in Revelations, so wouldn’t that make it worth voting for Obama so Jesus can come back?

  • Paul
  • Sia

    Come Friday after the job numbers Obama and MSNBC will go back down to where they belong.

  • Hillbilly

    FNC was number 1. I finally got 1 right. :cool: In fact FNC has the top 7 spots & 12 of the 25.

  • Hillbilly

    FNC last place on day 1. Let the rejoicing begin.


    MSNBC has some of the most un-like able anchors. Example: Rachael Madow and Rev Jackson…

  • Joe

    @Nick Czar

    Everyone knows that MSNBC is a very liberal network. You become laughable when you say Fox News is neutral. Because Fox News is extremely conservative and they don’t use facts. They literally lie all the time. If you’re going to bash MSNBC, then be consistent and bash Fox. But you won’t because you’re conservative. You’re extremely biased. You won’t bash Fox because you like what you hear because you’re conservative. Therefore you lose all credibility and your comments are worthless.

  • Mark

    FNC last place on day 1. Let the rejoicing begin.
    I am surprised I actually thought although the ratings wouldn’t be as high as last week that FNC would win among cable news networks. Seems like alot of preaching to the choir type viewers on all 3 cable news networks

  • HRJ

    Can’t we all just get along?

    Steve Schmidt seems to be a very level headed guy. I enjoy his commentary.
    When I listen to Steve Isometimes think of Game Change which reminds me of Sarah Palin. It is sorry that the republicans have ignored her. I think she is hurt. Wonder what her next move will be?

  • Mark

    Steve Schmidt seems to be a very level headed guy. I enjoy his commentary.

    It’s the same deal with Liberals on Fox, when you are counterpoint on FOX or MSNBC, you are paid to give the opposite POV not become a cheerleader for the party so you have less of a bias

    Jennifer Carroll, Allen West lead Romney’s “black leadership council”

    Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll and U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, are among three national chairs of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s newly-named “Black Leadership Council.”
    Honestly does Romney think giving Allan West a role in “the black leadership council” is a good idea to win over blacks, or hell even sane people in general

  • HRJ

    Can’t we all just get along?

    >>>>Nick Czar

    I see nothing wrong with Melissa Harris Perry. She always brings good conversation to subjects at hand. What is it about her that makes her a bottom feeder?

  • Rick

    Looks like CNN should stick with the CNN Presents series and dump the regular anchors and programing.

  • Laurence Glavin

    OK, with reference to any accounts in the so-called “Book of Revelation” (singular, not plural, there’s no “s” after the word): back in 1999 CE, there were numerous discussions about the coming 21st Century, including the fact that the exact date of “Jesus’s” birth (if he existed at all) could have occurres in 4, 3, 2,1 BCE or possibly later. The purported events of “Jesus’s” last year place possible dates of 30, 31, 32 or 33 CE. So Christian religionists will spend 2030, 2031, 2032, and 2033, the 2,000th anniversary of said purported events, claiming that JC’s re-appearnace is imminent. (It won’t happen before then because it will NEVER happen). So on January 1st, 2034, which will be a day like all others, a lot of religious fanatics will have a lot of splainin to do.

    @Laurence Glavin

    But the prophet Chuck Norris tells us if Obama wins it will be sooner.

  • Tired of Idiotic Comments

    To the trolls on this site that think Glenn Beck is irrelevant: The DNC just announced that GOD, and Jerusalem have been added back into the party platform at their convention. Sounds to me like GBTV and the Blaze are very relevant.

  • PaulG

    This should tell any Jew all they need to know about the democrat party…


  • Mark2

    Wow, CNN beat O’Reilly in the Demo. Are we in the Twilight Zone?
