    Hannity is tanking compared to his pre-election numbers which was near 3 million. I guess people have figured out he’s one of the biggest nuts that was and has ever been on Fox News. (Glenn Beck being number one of course)

  • TZCA

    @Ratboy

    Because you are now with a cane due to your pinched nerve, I have a comical image of you hunched over, one hand on the hip, the other hand holding the cane in the air shaking it at the TV and ranting every time you hear of a new layer of silliness that defines our Dear Leader.

  • mjrkong

    Wow. The business site numbers are really depressing. Looking at ratings for Fox Biz and CNBC makes one wonder if anybody on Main St. watches at all. They must rake in some ok ad money to put up with those 21’s and 22’s day in and day out.

    Hannity’s numbers are basically on par where he was from Jan-Aug.

  • BevAG

    TZCA, yes, I’m a she, and it is short for Beverly. :)

    I’m seeing a little bit of a down for FNC, just tiny, but I’m putting that in the entire category that all of us Republicans/Conservatives/Liberatarians/Tea Partiers are all sitting back watching and rethinking how we’re going to come at this. I think this is the first time we’ve REALLY digested how infested we are with Socialists.

    It’s obvious we’re going to have to go at this differently. We will. We’re all just taking a backseat for the moment and regroup. But when we come back, we’ll be coming back powerfully.

    I remember during and just after the Clinton Administration the Republicans had the ball in their court like the Socialists do now. There wasn’t a thing the Dems/Liberals/Socialists could do. The Democrats were marginalized. Everyone said they were dead, insignificant.

    I was watching them so demoralized and the Reps were have a field day. I said to myself, “We Reps are going to be sorry about this. The Dem rath is going to come back to haunt us,” and it did. They marginalized Bush terribly.

    Well, the shoe is on the other foot now.

    Because you are now with a cane

    Did you look in my window????? :lol: When I am done with the cane I have a place to store it but it might make Obama’s golf swing a little stiff!! :shock:

  • TZCA

    I am baffled why some of you liberals continue to say that Fox News viewers are no longer watching Fox because they have had their bubbles burst when they realized they were being lied to about a Romney landslide. And with the exception of Greta, I see Fox numbers on par with the average for most of the first seven to eight months of this year (without any pre-election bumps).

    I watch Fox News mostly, and try to watch a bit of MSNBC and Current TV for alternative viewpoints. From all of the Fox News I’ve watched leading up to the election, I can only pinpoint two people who have claimed that Romney would win an easy victory: Dick Morris and Karl Rove. All of the commentators took a ‘too close to call’ position. Even Rasmussen, who I’ve seen others on this site quote as saying Romney would definately win, said otherwise.

    I’ve seen Maddow and Matthews say things like this (right wing bubble bursting) and this must be where you liberals are getting this from. I’ve seen other right-wingers on here say that they’ve basically tuned out after the election, and that’s where I’ve been mentally and emotionally, but I definately haven’t looked at Fox News as lying to me about the election.

    :mrgreen: *chuckling* Nice to meet you. My name is Jason, and I’m a he.

    I was watching them so demoralized and the Reps were have a field day. I said to myself, “We Reps are going to be sorry about this. The Dem rath is going to come back to haunt us,” and it did.

    I agree. Also, I think that for a long time we will be dealing with the realities of how badly Bush painted the face of conservatism. Both parties, Republicans and Democrats, have grown the government and the public debt to the point of no return and we will have dire consequences. No real change will happen without there first being real pain, unfortunately. But I’m glad to know that mandatory contraception coverage is now a national priority.

  • BevAG

    TZCA: I totally agree with you. I never heard anyone saying it was going to be an overwhelming win except Dick Morris and Karl Rove either. And, boy, was I hoping they were correct. I really wanted it to be.

    I remember O’Reilly totally fighting with Morris over that, and I was mad at him for that. I thought O’Reilly was routing for Obama. I even wrote to him about that accusing him of doing that. I wanted so badly for Dick Morris to be correct. lol

    Well, it turns out that Morris is the one with egg on his face unfortunately. :(

    When I would watch MSNBC, all I’d hear is that the Republicans were so rich that they were going to steal this election. So I knew MSNBC was also figuring that Obama was going to lose and they were then going to play that, “See the rich Republicans stole the election,” card. And the Democrats/Liberals/Socialists were eating that right up.

    So I would say the only station lying about anything is MSNBC. But no surprise there.

  • LOOOOL

    It’s obvious that the real reason why Fox News viewers drop off after O’Reilly’s show is because all the 55+ old white viewers go to sleep. 9 pm is their bed time.

  • BevAG

    Hello, Jason, TZCA!!!! It’s really great to meet you. From reading the posts around here, it sounds like this is a nice place to be, except for Matt, of course.

    I’m getting this visual from Matt’s comment saying that I’m a nut ball hater that I hate nuts that are ball shaped. I don’t understand that insult at all, but then I’m not one to understand the thwarted mind of someone who would vote for President Obama.

    I totally agree with you that we are going to have dire consequences, and being able to say, “We told you so,” will not be an option. We’ll all be in the financial hell together. And, yes, it’s come from both parties. We are in a huge mess. And I think we’re all sitting back trying to think how are we going to fix all of this. We are in a pickle. That’s for sure.

  • BevAG

    LOOOOOL, what time do all the 55+ old black people go to sleep?

  • Snap Tie

    I think the real reason Romney lost his bid for presidency is that he said,

    ” When I’m elected, I will put Americans back to work “; and 51% said, “Screw That!!”

  • ed

    Dam, fox got that azz beat…Wow…what an amazing whipping. Go Rach.

  • Ratboy

    @ Snap Tie
    By Jove I think you got it!!!!!!! :lol:

  • Sam

    Poor Hannity, before he pops the champagne after winning the demo for the first time in two weeks, Maddow crushes him again.

    Bill O the clown says “Christianity is not a religion it is a philosphy”

    Poor old Bill, journalism is ashamed for him to be called a journalist , a real journalist is like A.Cooper who puts his life on the line to report not witch hunt behind his multi million dollars mansion !

    Oh and btw the “war on Christmas” is in full charge, just look around you ! All these lights and trees, those athiest must be celebrating Hanukkah !

    **********

    I had hoped Dick Morris would be right as well, but I knew he wouldn’t be. I had always taken a ‘too close to call’ position. I would debate a conservative co-worker who doesn’t watch Fox News at all, but believed Obama would lose by a landslide. I would tell him that what he wants is not equal to what will happen; wishing something to be true doesn’t make it so.

    I try not to view MSNBC commentators as lying, but instead I see them as providing a very strange twist to an issue being discussed. And they have apologized when caught manipulating video, as has the commentators on Fox.

    I just can’t understand how some in here can think things as silly as O’Reilly’s harmless (though misinformed) views about Psy are earthshattering, but the lack of any negative reporting about Obama from MSNBC means nothing and that Fox News is lying for doing the negative reporting. This is also baffling to me. And the ones doing this want to be viewed as having a higher intellectual capacity than those flat-earther right-wingers?

    speaking about Fox’s Annual War on Christmas celebration, Jon Stewart did a good take on it last night
