    I got my coverage from Comedy Central, where I learned things like Florida was “…where Cubans go to live, and Jews go to die”.

    @Joseph

    Good for you !

    Typical of left leaning media. Your headline does not reflect the truth. Fox News won the 7:00, 8:00, 9:00, and 10:00 hours in total viewership. This is another example of media bias and lack of integrity. Journalism has become just another political tool. Another sign of the country’s decline.

    @John total viewers dont matter. Its the demo point that matters and CNN did a goodjob and they son.
