    If CNN lasts another decade as a station, I’ll eat my hat.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Yeah CNN and MSNBC are getting a boost on Dem convention coverage. Very good for CNN.

    More important for Obama is the jobs number. ADP number has jobs at 201,000 private sector for August. That is a huge boost for the Prez. if the government numbers come close tomorrow. With the Clinton speech and the acceptance speech tonight that will provide a huge boost.

    If things work out for the Dems, I can live with you lefties gloating. I just can’t stand the bottom feeders in the lib. media crowing. The empty skirts are even more insufferable than the empty suits in the lib. media.

  • Doug Z

    In 2008, people had to vote for Obama to prove they weren’t racists… In 2012 they will

    CNN may actually add viewers on a more permanent basis. MSNBC already had a lot of the viewers watching nightly. They are fighting for the same viewers.

  • Sicilian Papa

    If the economy performs well in the next couple of months Obama like any incumbant will be hard to beat. It doesn’t matter what Bill Clinton or Obama says, though that can help, if the economy performs better.

  • Ratboy

    Will MSNBC hit the numbers tonight that FOX hit last week for the final night of the convention?

  • d.d.

    You’ll probably still have your hat.

    This won’t help CNN either

    CNN faces another challenge to its declining brand as Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings prepares to launch a competing network, viewable only in airports.

    CNN makes its money selling advertising opportunities on the channel, which it claims is seen by nearly 248 million air passengers yearly in more than 40 airports for an average of 47 minutes each.

    ClearVision intends to challenge CNN’s dominance by giving viewers a greater range of programming, and starting next spring, its viewing monitors will also act as Wi-Fi hotspots, letting mobile devices connect and stream the same content for free to enhance a personal viewing experience. Because the service will be available over Wi-Fi, viewers will avoid eating away their monthly data allowance with wireless providers.

    Descendant of Geronimo at the DNC called the Faux Indian Princess Elizabeth Warren a disgrace. I agree with him.

  • Dan

    What a surprise, all the liberals flock to liberal cnn & msnbc for the DNC which stonewalled FNC & all moderate & conservative outlets. Obama can’t stand to be criticized so he keeps those reporters out. The sad part is mostly msnbc & cnn did mostly talking during the dnc, FNC actually showed all the speeches & provided the best coverage of all speakers/comprehensive coverage.

  • Dan

    Democrats booed God at their convention & have no Latino rising stars so they get a MAYOR with a racist past to speak. Any wonder anyone watches this crap.

    Well that is private sector jobs. The trend the past couple years is private sector jobs are good, public sector jobs are bad so the overall number might not look as nice. I think the September job numbers(which we get early October) is the big one personally(ie they have a month to debate them)

  • Snap Tie

    Obama lies again….please make him stop.
    Steelworker Featured at DNC Didn’t Work for Bain Capital..

    ABC News surprisingly broke the story.

    Obama has a little wind at his back so the lib. media will pretend to be newspeople unless Obama falls behind then they will be campaign staffers.

    They booed God? That sounds a little silly since they think he is an imaginary little man in the sky. Why would they be so afraid to have an imaginary little man in their platform.

  • Ratboy

    Chance of rain at speech time tonight ZERO % :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Snap Tie

    Multi million dollar ad buy exposing Barack Obama’s support for infanticide will play before his speech tonight. Campaign in panic mode and trying to knock it off.

    So by your logic why be afraid to put imaginary things into the platform, why not put leprechauns, unicorns and Bigfoot in the platform. All that being said I think the majority of booing was people who were annoyed they basically got bullied into putting it in

  • HRJ

    Can’t we all just get along?

    MSMBC did good. Wednesdays number should be better. Good job.

    MSNBC president Phil Griffin is a delusional man. Griffin rejected the notion that the network’s hosts are supporting one party over the other.. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/05/msnbc-convention-phil-griffin_n_1858933.html?utm_hp_ref=media
