    The prez can’t meet with Natanyahu cuz he is too busy meeting with Magic Johnson and the rest of the hommies. So the mideast can burn while he dribbles.

    Here’s the averages for the DNC during the primetime hour of Day 1 thru 3

    CNN – 4,528,000
    MSNBC – 4,347,000
    FOX – 2,788,000

    Surprising that CNN did so well.

    Mediaite also posted something like that. Read carefully. HuffPo states that “this is the first time MSNBC won a full week of weekday primetime ratings” – weekday primetime. Weekly ratings include weekends. Next, the HuffPo article says “additionally, the week of Sept. 3 was the network’s second best weekly primetime ratings performance ever.” Notice that they didn’t call the weekly primetime ratings a win for MSNBC.

    What you posted are the averages for the 10-11pm hour only of Day 1 thru 3. Primetime averages for Day 1-3 (in thousands):
    MSNBC – 3,413
    CNN – 3,345
    FNC – 2,632

    MarkII: BSNBC and CNN both did beat FOX News during the DNC. Geez..I can’t for the life of me imagine why?

    HRJ: Go back to reading the Weekly Reader you are given in the 4th. grade. When you grow up, and get a clue + an advance in your IQ from plant life to at least refrigeration (42-46). bin Obama is so into Israel…right.

    HRJ: bin Obama has a plan for Libya; get on his knees and beg to stop the terrorist attacks..puhleeze! and (2), Increase our handout(extortion) yearly fee at least 500 million more to shut them up (temporarily)

    Good Quote. When our government became a charity with forced contributions the vision our founding fathers had and fought for went by the wayside.

    @MathMan & Honey Badger:

    Do you mean that our Founding Fathers had to deal with deadbeats AND the British?

    Hey AppleStinx, thanks for the numbers and the clarification. Either way, Fox News was in last place.
