    MSNBC lost to CNN on both days in Total Day P2+. FNC only lost on Sunday in the A25-54 demo.

    You took the words right out of my mouth, Apple Stinx.

    here’s an idea…while we’re at it, let’s relentlessly do something else just as laughably stupid- Let’s, on a weekly basis, compare what The New England Patriots performance is versus the 2-bottom high school football teams in the The Boston Unified School District.

    FOX News, viewed in far fewer homes than NBC/ABC/CBS, is a far more accurate league for comparison-purposes than matching-up FOX News with MSNBC, The National Enquirer, CNN, and D!kes on Bikes.

    Purely from advertising-dollars point of view, my point is indisputable…
