    Cable news ratings tell us only one thing. It tells us how many people are watching each channel. It doesn’t tell us how many conservatives there are or how many liberals there are in the country.

    We’ve all seen the on street interview of the average person on the street. They call themselves democrats but when asked questions their answers show their thinking more alignments with republicans. You ask them Obama’s plans
    Who wins and who losses in 2014 is going to be based on the economy. And the impact of the Health Care Act.

  • cathy

    I hope people are not really thinking of Gov Chris Cristie in 2016. His large frame, mob boss look is O.K. for NJ. But we are too anti-fat in this country for him to win.

    Remember when Clinton got his big mac belly, the liberal press that loves him was all over him.

  • RedBarSoup

    All those viewers are comprised of right, left, inbetween, and most of who dont give a crap either way but are just trying to get the news!! So your point is????

    That makes those watchers infinitely more better than you and the people that only watch Fox News or only watches MSNBC….THAT’S the difference….

  • RedBarSoup

    – more

  • Diamond Dave

    Redbarsoup is more better than us. I’m much so sad.

  • RedBarSoup

    lol….I corrected myself, and I don’t watch those three shows….so no I’m not. :)

  • 1966

  • AppleStinx


    I hope you’re not sad because you and Hillbilly both got your predictions wrong. These things happen; nobody notices. :sad:

    One cable news program made the list, Hillbilly and 1966 guessed zero.

  • Mark2

    Cable 18-49 demo numbers:

    Jon Stewart = 700,000 viewers

    Colbert = 500,000 viewers

    O’Reilly = 200,000 viewers

    That future is bright for the Democrats.

  • Mark2

    Here’s an interesting comparison of the 3 main Cable News Networks:

    Estimated Unique Monthly Visitors for Online News websites

    1. CNN = 74,000,00

    2. MSNBC = 73,000,00

    3. Fox News = 32,000,000

    Even as a Liberal, I don’t tune in to MSNBC TV or CNN TV to get my daily news. However, I like most Americans do get my news via the internet on a daily basis. And just like most Americans who do get their news from TV, I tune in to Evening news on one of the Liberal Broadcast stations (NBC, CBS, or ABC).

    I will take a college student thinking their special, over a Minister thinking their GOD any day.

    Example: Mike Huckabee…

    See Just what cathy was talking about.College student has do nothing yet , better than all

  • cathy

    Doug Z, I disagree. To date I believe Andrew Jackson was the worst President.

    But how do we rank and rate them in an objective method. I don’t think that you can. That’s why ranking of president change over the years.

    History is going to have a better view of GW Bush. He made mistakes I agree. But the sign of a good leader is how they handle a crisis. Bush was a voice of reassurance and calming on 9/11/2001. He brought us together. When people started to attack Arab American, Bush called for a stop. In an extremely scary time he made us feel safe. The methods the Bush administration used to get the terrorist leadership was highly criticized by many and still is today. But it is the same method being used by the Obama administration. And those methods got Bin Laden.

    ABC, NBC, CBS do not have any Demos, Libs on them . That is why you like them. Yes that makes it hard for the GOP.

    Doug Z, I disagree. To date I believe Andrew Jackson was the worst President.

    It was a different time. He was as great as he was bad.I loved that he took the gold from what would be the Fed Bank today. What about Alexander the Great,or the others. They would be the worst people in history by our way of thinking today. If WWII went different we would think different about the leaders.

  • Doug Z

    cathy Glen Beck does that. Compare old leaders for his propaganda. Glen Beck is right about everything, maybe 20years, maybe 100 years, who knows.

  • Doug Z


    Before WWI common people in what I will call England could not own land. I could not believe that.

  • Doug Z

    The country was growing by giant leaps . things were getting better fast. today they will look back at all Western leaders as losers.The leader of China will be even smarter than Reagan was to Russia, in are fall

  • Doug Z

    Bush lead in the decline. That is how history will look at him. Some of the so called Greats of the past were really the worst. They make Jackson look kind to the Indians. Who will write history will be the winners. Losers are always bad.

  • cathy

    While we in the U.S. are likely going to ban assault rifles after Sandy Hook attack and likely ban other guns.

    All schools in China to hire security guards after Henan knife attack.

    The knife attack in China in December shows us that the mentally ill who want to attack our children are going to find a tool.

    OK, liberals I know you are going to say, but the knife only injured the children it didn’t kill them. But the point is we don’t want them killed or injured. Figure out how to pay for security guards at our schools, then go after the guns. Oh wait, if we’d did that people wouldn’t support us going after the guns. Do you still think Obama and Biden care more about our children’s safety then their gun control agenda?

    Gun control is not going to save our children from all attacks. Security Guards will.

  • cathy

    I should add. Do we in the U.S. care less for our children than the people of China care for theirs?
