    Here’s a stat for you: more people watch local tv news in the New York City than watch all of the national cable news channels nationwide.

    Get your head out of your a$$ “knucklehead”
    This post was not from me….sorry nice try though, somebody’s on crack!

    Anywho, jury selection 4 days, trial 3 days, jury deliberation less than 30 mins, NOT GUILTY! The Prosecutor should not of taken this to trial. All jurors unanimous even all throughout the deliberation. What a waste of time and money!

    It is probably (DB Rob 1996) all the same idiot.

  • Coffee Steve

    You guys keep the news flowing, I gatta get for awhile


  • Coffee Steve

    What a waste of time and money!

    Every State Red and Blue are good at that. Kepp the coffee warm Jeff


  • DB

    Sounded just like you jeffie.

  • DB

    Obama not aware of embassy apology statement, not aware of planned attack in Libya, not aware that marines in Egyptian Embassy not allowed to have ammmo. If he spent some time actually doing his job instead of campaigning, playing golf and vacationing maybe he would pick up on some of these details. Only someone with ideological blinders on would not recognize that this inexperienced incompetent is in way over his head and will be remembered as the worst president of all time, knocking Jimmy Carter off the top of the list.

  • Jeff

    I love it DB (douche bag) it shows how desperate loser you really are.

    I could never imitate your stupidity.

    Fox is #1 in viewership of the cable news channels, no question, and they probably will continue to be which is a really sad commentary on the USA. That is why they should take more responsiblity to stop slanting the news and continuing to broadcast to the most misinformed audience in the US, whose only news source is obviously FOX. MSNBC has really risen in the polling, obviously at the expense of CNN. I land on CNN channel occasionally and just have to shake my head it is so bad. Often they are reporting on things that are really low interest news of the day to most cable news viewers.THey also have really subpar newscasters, with the exception of Anderson Cooper. Can t they pretty please retire Wolf Blizer, he is an embarasssment. John King is also pathetic. Fire him for sure. All the young female faces doing the news hasnt helped at all. Id say CNN needs to monitor MSNBC for about a week to see how news should be formatted and what makes them a success.. Not necessairly for content, but how to do a cable news show, the type of talent to hire, etc.

    I agree with your comment. I see every human as being unique. Defining people by race is terriable. I have Muslim friends and they are great,i dont’ see them as Muslims, i see them like me and everyone else. America get over this sterotyping people and puting them into boxes.
