    Bev–Fox has a minute fraction of the US TV audience and Fox is representative of right wing way out people (and it’s skewed to very old audience–the “Lawrence Welk” types…and has nothing to do with America adopting Fox’s or the right’s viewpoints. In fact, as the election clearly indicated, the right was beaten badly, as were the t-bag candidates. Further, all polls show the majority of the American people favor Obama’s fiscal cliff solutions (even moderate Republicans) and not the Grover Norquist anti-middle class solution of the right wing radicals in the House. It’s been a very good few months for the democrats and the American People–just ask Rove at Fox………….

  • cathy

    @beedavisjr, Just stop “the conservative party” is dying garbage. The conservative party GOP has a record number of Governors. The party did well in a number of local and state election.

    The dems/libs did a wonderful job of class warfare in the National Election. They also did a great job of blaming Bush. They can’t blame the republicans forever. They are going to have to turn the economy around.

    By the way, when asked more people do say they are dems then reps. But when just ask question about their beliefs. Their beliefs put them in the conservatives camp. Which show that the republicans need to get their message out.

  • Diamond Dave

    Mark2—

    Done your research lately? Because you claiming Murdoch gave orders for Fox to avoid gun control talk is completely untrue. It was a made up story by Politico, HuffPo, and Daily Beast. Don’t believe me? Read it here, from The Hollywood Reporter (not a right-wing blogspot):

    http://m.hollywoodreporter.com/news/reports-fox-news-barring-discussions-403982

    Then you can continue spreading the lie if you want. But it will only be further proof you don’t do any real research to know if your claims are true.

  • usa8888

    Once we get past the absurd right wing notions that we contract spending severely in a bad recession, raise taxes on the middle class, cut taxes for the ultra rich (who are NOT creating jobs), curtail unemployment payments, look askance at much needed infrastructure programs (which themselves through the multiplier effect will create more jobs), our country will start humming again…in short, once the right wing GOP stops ceases their inveterate obstruction philosophy, things will be fine……

  • Mt Rick

    I think that what we are going to find out is that advertisers and the Rating Agency will follow the Baby Boom generation because currently that is the largest population group and the group that has the financial pocket book.

    To many people between the age of 25 and 35 are unemployed or have stagnant careers. Financially they will not be influencial consumers under current economic conditions and to many have educations that are not sufficient for todays job market. Also younger people are more disenfranchized with TV Media News it is establishment crap and Cable is expensive.

    So advertisers will follow the money, the Baby Boom generation. I wouldn’t be suprised if the rating agency changed the 35-64 age group to 40-69 in a few years. Numbers for the 25-54 group will langish for a few years and the numbers for the 35-64 group will remain strong.

    Follow the Money

  • cathy

    @Mark2 – You are going a little far out there don’t you think? You’re starting it get in the apples and oranges comparison. The only times would could compare would be the 6pm hour. But sorry, you can’t get a fair number and by fair I mean not everyone gets the cable news channels, standard news channels have a larger number of people that can watch them.

    If you can find a site that shows a rating number for the people who have access to Cable news channels but watch NBC, CBS or ABC. We can add the in.

    We’ll all be watching as the Democrat’s (President Obama’s) economics take us into bankruptcy like the super majority of Democrats here in California have taken California just about into bankruptcy, and it’s getting worse by the minute.

  • usa8888

    Bev-as I said, If we could get the right wingers in the House to stop obstructing Obama’s progressive economic ideas, the country will be much better off.

    We’ve been following Democrat economics here in California for 42 years, and it’s taken us to bankruptcy.

  • Mt Rick

    Cathy
    I like the fact that People voted Republican to control the House. The House is the chamber where the spending and taxes ae suppose to be determined.

    The White House is where the spending actually occurs and People voted in a person that what to spend more and the senate is also in a spend more mood.

    My take is that the People would like more government services but they don’t want to spend any more for them. Hell, just put it on the credit card the 25-35 year olds that can’t find a job now can pay on the credit cards in the future. The current group of idiots in government may not be there in 10 year when we find out that thier projections on spending were wrong.

  • BevAG

    @usa, there are no right wingers in California’s government to obstruct the Democrats. The Democrats did this California bankruptcy all by themselves. They can’t blame the Republicans. Any Republican politician is insignificant in California.

    usa, the state of California is not “better off” with the Democrats’ progressive economic ideas it’s been shoving down the throats of Californians for 42 years. As a matter of fact, those Democrat economic ideas are bankrupting the once great state of California.

  • Mt Rick

    The idea that we can continually raise taxes on the wealthy to cover government spend will prove to be a fallicy. The people that made millions the past 10 years will not make millions in the next 10 years. They don’t have to they already have millions. They can sit back and spend until they die. it is the people that would like to make millions that will be stymeed by the ever increasing taxing to cover the politicians spending.

    People haven’t caught on to the fact that government spending is only the politicians effort to get re-elected. Neither party proposes to balance the budget in 10 years and in 4 years they still will not have a 10 year budget that will balance the budget.

    We are in a perpetual deficit spending mode because that is the only way Politicians can keep getting elected is to keep the spending going and always increase it from the previous group of Politicians.

    Un fortunately we are destined for another bout with stagflation or a Greece sinario except with nobody able to bail our government out and the tax payers unwilling to sustain high taxes to pay for past Political spending. Both parties are guilty and neither party has a long term solution. They continue their bickering until the bond market decided that they are incompetant in solving even simple problems and stop lending them money.

    I do not have much, change that, any faith in the two political parties. They are to self absorbed and politically tied into party to do what needs to be done. They need to do what is good for themselves and the party that support them.

    The Democrats control Illinios and New York and those two States are not far behind California.

  • Mt Rick

    Obama’s may have progressive ideas but in order for the country to afford them he needs to convince the American People as well as congress that Taxing at a rate of 24% of GDP is good for the country. Right now he is having a hard time increasing taxes to above 15% of GDP.

    During the 1960 and 1970 the Democrats were trying to push taxes to 20% of GDP and were constantly battling inflation and stagflation. They will run into the same problem. Europe had the same problem during the same era but it extended into the 1980s.

    Increasing cost of government is more inflationary than the increasing cost of energy and food. With energy and food you can reduce your consumption to reduce your cost. Politicians determine how much government you have to consume and how much it will cost, you just get stuck with the bill.

  • usa8888

    Cathy–anyone with an ounce of economics education (and certainly the vast majority of economists from reputable universities) agrees that spending (i.e., stimulus) during a bad recession or Depression is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL. Stimulus in terms of infrastructure improvements will immediately create millions of jobs and have a multiplier effect for subsequent job creation–money will immediately be injected into the economy by the infrastructure employees. If nothing were done (as the right wingers suggested), the economy would fall into oblivion because there would be increasingly less spending until it goes to zero. This can be shown by mathematical modeling but there is no need–it is intuitively obvious. No one with money is going to build a plant or hire employees if there is no demand for its products. So the right’s insistence on drastically cutting spending in a bad recession or depression is a recipe for DISASTER. Once the economy responds to the stimulus, spending needs to by lessened but by then the economy is humming and much needed tax revenues are flowing into the US Treasury.

  • usa8888

    Mt. Rick–your first two paragraphs are irrelevant to the economics of a bad recession or depression and your third paragraph is COMPLETELY FALSE. Government spending during a bad recession or depression is necessary for the reasons I outlined above. AND such spending is the only thing that will help generate jobs since no wealthy people will create jobs or build factories if there is no demand for their products. Government spending (such as infrastructure projects) will spark demand by effecting an immediate injection of money into the economy with a subsequent multiplier effect. If one reduces his consumption of food, not only will it hurt the economy but it will also negatively effect the health of people. Reduction of gas expenditures will curtail necessary trips, many business related–thus hurting the economy. And additional money made by the oil companies will not necessarily get injected into the economy, thus having a negative effect on subsequent job creation.

  • usa8888

    Cathy–the Forbes article is another example of erroneous right wing economics which has no basis empirically or theoretically. Thankfully, only a handful of right wing “economists” hold these incorrect views…..
