    Wow Hannity gets more in the key demo than OReilly AND almost as many overall!! MSDNC gains a few 100k per show and FOX gains a couple Million pwr show!! :lol:

  • Matthew

    Considering that MSNBC’s budget is 1/3rd of the budgets that Fox and CNN run on, I’m sure NBC-Universal is happy with those demo numbers. CNN is looking dire, though.

  • Tom

    Wow Rachel hit 700K in 25-54 almost beating O’Reilly.
    MSNBC is clearly the younger of the networks(that is younger skewing): Hannity with his 3.8 million has the same number of viewers in 25-54 as Rachel with 1.8m.
    Lots of old bozos flock to Fawk News.

  • Tony

    Great night for Maddow.

    No it’s Madcow

    Roger Ailes Signs New Deal With Fox News

    4 more years

    Video: Fort Hood massacre not considered a terrorist attack?

    Here’s the video I mentioned today , and it’s heartbreaking:

  • dan

    Fox dominates

  • Rich

    Just means only young people watch MSNBC while young and old watch FOX NEWS…..FOX NEWS has a broader audience….

  • Jeff

    Someone celebrated that the Orlando Sentinel endorsed Romney.

    But wait!

    The Salt Lake Tribune endorsed The President. That’s Mormon country OUCH! That’s a message Mitt won’t like too well.

  • Mark

    Just out of curiosity how would you Republicans react if Romney wins popular vote and Obama wins Electoral vote? Looking at polls it seems like a likely possibility. Personally I think they should get rid of the electoral vote myself, it basically turns many states into meaningless votes for President

    Also one thing I hate about the electoral vote is you have a state like Wyoming that has like 600k people and a Sate like California that has 37M. Wyoming gets 3 electoral votes while California gets 55. It’s a basic case California has more then 60 times the population then Wyoming but in terms of electoral votes they only have 18 times as many electoral votes. I think the electoral vote should be changed to 1 electoral vote for every million people, and the second you go 1 person over a million it becomes 2.

    YoY Mark

    You cannot tap dance away.

    Sorry guys (non gender term), I am going to have to repost just for Mark

    Bad thing Mark, thisis Thur post and it will be up all weekend.

  • usnretiredx2

    ? @Mark
    “how is the Obama Administration anti Oil?. That talking point is a bunch of BS(yes I understand they are pointing to drilling on public lands but the simple fact is more oil is being drilled now then ever)”
    Ok Mark let us look at this with so detail

    “More Oil is drilled in the US now then ANYTIME under George Bush Jr”

    That is Some what true (2000-2003 pumped more). Why is that though?

    History

    First off before 2007 Fracking was too costly to be used. Major developments by the oil companies improved the safety and process. Then the legal battles with the EPA and Green Bubbas began. Once all the info was out and the EPA and Green Bubbas lost the battle the known usable oil fields grew. Before that we were a drop in the bucket, now we are the bucket.

    Eia.gov dated 1 Aug 2012

    Proved reserves of U.S. oil and natural gas in 2010 rose by the highest amounts ever recorded since the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) began publishing proved reserves estimates in 1977.
    Net additions to proved reserves of crude oil plus lease condensate in 2010 totaled 2.9 billion barrels, surpassing the previous high of 1.8 billion barrels added in 2009 by 63 percent (Table 1).

    Net additions of wet natural gas in 2010 totaled 33.8 trillion cubic feet (Tcf), nearly 5 Tcf (17 percent) higher than the previous record of 28.8 Tcf, also added in 2009.

    Now let us just look at the data of oil production from the Bush years to present and compare them to the imports during the same time.

    Date Production (Thousand Barrels per Day) Imports (Thousand Barrels)
    2000 ….. 5822 ….. 3319816
    2001 ….. 5801 ….. 3404894
    2002 ….. 5744 ….. 3336175
    2003 ….. 5644 ….. 3527696
    2004 ….. 5435 ….. 3692063
    2005 ….. 5186 ….. 3695971
    2006 ….. 5089 ….. 3693081
    2007 ….. 5077 ….. 3661404
    2008 ….. 5000 ….. 3580694
    2009 ….. 5353 ….. 3289675
    2010 ….. 5479 ….. 3362856
    2011 ….. 5658 ….. 3261422

    You will notice while production imports were up. We were importing more oil during the Bush years because the price of oil was less.
    Date Oil Price (Dollars per Barrel)

    2000 …. 26.72
    2001 …. 21.84
    2002 …. 22.51
    2003 …. 27.56
    2004 …. 36.77
    2005 …. 50.28
    2006 …. 59.69
    2007 …. 66.52
    2008 …. 94.04
    2009 …. 56.35
    2010 …. 74.71
    2011 …. 95.73

    When the price of a barrel is low, private production drops. To drill on private land cost more, the little guy has a higher overhead and if the big guy wants to drill he has to pay more to do so. So during low prices it is not cost effective.

    So is it a BS talking point

  • usnretiredx2

    ? @Mark
    Look at the data using the above info

    This is the total barrel aval to US consumers by year

    2000 ….. 3325638
    2001 ….. 3410695
    2002 ….. 3341919
    2003 ….. 3533340
    2004 ….. 3697498
    2005 ….. 3701157
    2006 ….. 3698170
    2007 ….. 3666481
    2008 ….. 3585694
    2009 ….. 3295028
    2010 ….. 3368335
    2011 ….. 3267080

    That tells a story in itself.

    Drill baby drill.

  • nimeinenumer

    I love Fox!!!

  • James

    Did anybody catch lawrence callin out taggart romney..to come take a swing at him..for callin his old man a liar..it was priceless

  • Doug

    @usnretried – I’m not sure what you’re trying to prove – the numbers show little variation. What is good is that overall oil demand has dropped, in part because of the slowdowns, and in part because of efficiencies.

  • James

    Anyway good numbers for the team at msnbc

  • Mike W

    Perspective. The endorsement of the President by the Salt Lake Tribune means little since Utah is solidly Romney. The endorsement of Romney by the Orlando Sentinel has more weight since the trend in Florida is toward Romney and a Newspaper that previously endorsed the President in 2008 has reconsidered and reversed its position.

  • Mark

    @usnretiredx2

    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/apr/13/crossroads-gps/crossroads-gps-ad-oil-production-obama/

    Crossroads GPS ad says oil production on federal lands dropped under President Barack Obama

    They call it a half truth

    In their they say

    The ad starts with Obama’s claim that domestic oil production is at an eight-year high, something we’ve twice rated Mostly True.

    Basically the Republicans are trying to muddy the waters saying we are drilling less on public lands(not pointing out we are drilling more on public and private lands combined)
