    MSNBC and CNN are for left-wing Communist pinkos. If there ever is any surge in their numbers it only reflects a surge in that part of the U.S population. Go Fox!

  • Hillbilly

    Broadcast’s lowest show in the top 25 6079.

  • Hillbilly

    Cable’s highest (non sports) show in the top 25 4672.

    Bill O made the list 3 times.

    Using Steve Perry logic cable TV is dying. ;)

  • Hillbilly

    My source better than Ratboy’s. :razz:

    ——————————————–

    FNC & MSNBC make the list.

    FNC number 3 in Prime-time viewers & number 5 in Total Day Average Viewers.

    MSNBC number 13 in Prime-time viewers & number 15 in Total Day Average Viewers.

  • Hillbilly

    AppleStinx – No colored boxes either way. The ones you see, are they kind of psychedelic by any chance?

    ——————————-

    I hope i ain’t having a flashback. :???:

  • Mark2

    I’m going to wait until the Intrade hits 90% and then I’m going to buy 1,000 shares at $1. That way I win either way. If Obama wins then I lose $1,000 and it would be so worth it. If Romney wins, then I win $9,000.

    Hey Billy,

    Rachel Maddow was actually ranked higher than O’Reilly on that link you posted.

    ———————

    In the demo (if you use decimals) not in total viewers as i stated in the post. Both had a 0.3 in the demo. I’m guessing since Rachel Maddow was higher up on the list she beat Bill O by a small amount.

    ***Example – RM – 0.367 BO – 0.342

  • Ratboy

    @ Mark2
    I’m afraid you’re incorrect. See video below

    Sorry Mark but I dont have time to pull up the details and I will not take that youtube from MEDIAMATTERS as any kind of fact. Sorry but they have no credability as they have admitted that they just want to destroy FOX and are tax exempt but hyet communicate with the white house and the DOJ daily.

  • Hillbilly

    Coffee Steve – You have peaked my curiosity this early morning, in reference from the .pdf you provided, which I am reading it made reference to this statement

    ————————————-

    I hope the fed govt ain’t guilty of what their accused of. I’m thinking Shelia Jackson Lee (EPA admin) hyped (don’t wanna say lied) the danger of PM2.5 to congress. Then used the “hype” for writing new EPA regs. If it wasn’t hype then somebody should be put in jail IMO.

    @Ralph

    My dog did scoot it’s butt on the carpet and the wife put it outside :-)

    @Applestinx & d.d.

    I somewhat dis-agree with your post of the un-skewed polling. The DNC & RNC uses it along with other polling info In their Internal Polling. If example: if Romney did have a +7 and if only the un-skewed polling is 3 off that still would leave Romney up 4.

    I’m not saying it is, but just saying the parties use Internal info an uses several polling methods, and when they are compared and averaged out, thus they have a better idea than we do or the National polls would show.

    I wil say this though, there are about 85 services polling this time, and the spread does indicate to me anyway, that most are doing it to throw false data out there for confusion purposes.

    I think Obama is up anywhere from about 1-4 points, which actually isn’t anything this far out.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Hillbilly
    I hope the fed govt ain’t guilty of what their accused of.

    It wouldn’t shock me if they did, sadly. I am still doing some background research on it and hope to post on it Wed. I’ll post some links If I find anything noteworthy.

    :shock:

    It was a 32 sec. video that just show Fox&Friends making a correction to the real unemployment numbers. I actually commend Fox News for correcting themselves and airing it on their show. In other words, even Fox News has the Real Unemployment rate at 14.7% and admits that the rate was at 14.2% when Obama took office.

    Sadly you will never hear Romney campaign on that since in Republicans eyes that would be considered a positive. lol

  • Larry

    Just out of curiosity, how many supreme court judges are planning to retire any time soon?
    My guess is there is alot more strategy afoot.

    I think up to 4 might retire, but I have a feeling some will retire depending what side wins. Personally I think they should come up with a 20 year rule for people on the SCOTUS. it’s ridiculous that some of these people are closing in on 80

  • Ratboy

    @ Mark2

    First off if that is true the althought slight it has still gotten worse under Obama BUT…….do you really think it is mathmatecly possibble that the numbers are still that close?? Think about it!

  • Mark

    @ratboy

    Actually yes it is mathematically possible the numbers are close. The economy was in a freefall for the first year of Obama’s term but starting around 2010 that changed

  • AppleStinx

    Ralph Nader for President!

  • Coffee Steve

    @d.d.

    More billionaires are fleeing from the market and now so are lower level investors, including this one.

    Market is expected soon to have a major correction.
