  • Jeff

    Lawrence Odonnell is on Fire!!!!

    Fox News Drools!!

    Thought I’d say it first for a change!!

  • Jeff

    Fox News bozos attacking the sale of Current TV to AlJazerra……..hmmmm??? AlJazerra is Luke warm compared to Fox News media partners.

    Simply put, Rupert Murdoch owns several Arab news organizations that HATE on the USA. Also, Mr Murdoch has financial interests in production companies that, for example produce anti American movies about our soldiers in Iraq killing Iraqis or stealing Iraqis citizens organs to five to Jews in Israel.

    Pretty F’ed up!! Fox News is a media partner with Arab media groups that report lies about our troops and our government.

    Way 2 go Fox Fools!! You know what they say about glass houses.

  • clinging to my god

    The difference here is HYPOCRISY…Fox is VERY pro oil, they don’t believe in Global Warming or give speeches….. they are the antithesis of the fat pig and multimillionaire Hollywood ‘star’ and best buddy of Leo Dicaprio…..

  • Sam

    Joe Scarborough is a giant a$$ hole, Mike should have called him that instead. Republicans should be the last people to talk about women’s rights, no party stood obstacle to women rights like them.

  • Sam

    @ Jeff,

    Jon Stewart exposed Fox’s hypocrisy regarding Current TV sale beautifully :


  • Jeff

    @sam, I saw part of the piece last night, you are right it was very well done. I watched your link again, thanks!!

    Pretty sick of the hypocrites at Fox News! They must laugh about how stupid their viewers must be….I know Rupert must, all the way to the bank.

  • Mike

    Clever spin,Jeff. O’Reilly beats Ed by 206% and 157% for Total and 25-54 viewers,respectively. Hannity beats Maddow by 104% and 30%, respectively. Greta is ahead of O’Donnell by 53% and behind him by 11%, respectively but “Fox News Drools.” I bet that MSNBC would trade positions with Fox News in a ‘heart beat’.

  • Mark2

    Jon Stewart is on FIRE!!!

    Jon Stewart and Colbert destroy O’Reilly, Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN in Cable TV’s key demo (18-49).

    Jon Stewart = 1,138,860 (That’s just incredible)
    Colbert = 759,240
    O’Reilly = 379,620 (doesn’t even come close)


  • beached

    Kudlow on CNBC..What a joke. Horrible ratings. Drop the buffoon.

  • Jeff

    Sorry mike I pointed out Larry-O, then you come out will silly spin with all the inaccurate %’s


    Try again!

  • Andies

    Nancy Grace gaining some steam back.. What, are they replaying Casey Anthony trial or something lol???

  • Mike

    Wow – comparing Steward and Colbert vs. cable news. Really?? Why don’t we compare this week’s football games vs. cable news.

  • Mike

    Inaccurate %’s?? I don’t think so.

  • Mark2


    Colbert covers political news, Stewart covers political news, O’Reilly covers political news. Even O’Reilly refers to himself as an entertainer.

    “Don’t hate the player, hate the game”…lol.

  • Bobbyv


    So you see no hypocrisy with Al Gore?

  • AppleStinx

    Things are settling back to normal. ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ at around 3 million viewers and the only program on a cable news channel to be in the top 100 daily cable ranker.

  • betty

    Beating ALL the Competition…..FOX, repeat “FOX”…read it and weep…
    Fox & Friends OVER Joe…The Five OVER Cris tingles…Bret OVER Sharpee…
    Shep OVER Cris tingles…Bill OVER Mr.Edd…Hannity OVER Rackhell…
    FOX is on Fire !!!!

  • cathy

    Colbert and Stewart are political satire (comedy) their are making fun of the political news. But of course a liberal wouldn’t know the difference.

  • Matthew

    Colbert and Stewart are political satire (comedy) their are making fun of the political news.

    Actually, Stewart’s show is increasingly a gray area (and O’Reilly himself calls Stewart out on this). If anything, the Daily Show in it’s present form is a news show with comedy elements, while the Colbert Report is satirical comedy with news elements. The Daily Show has a lot more in common with the cable news prime time shows than it does with, say, fake news like The Onion.

  • d.d.

    BTW, where is BevAg?

    She’s spending a month in my beautiful state of TN. , then, I believe, she’ll be visiting your expansive state of Texas.


    DOJ Report: Youths 6 Times More Likely To Be Victimized By A Knife Than A Gun

    A new Justice Department study looking at violent crimes committed against “youth”—defined as Americans from 12 to 17 years of age—discovered that the rate of “serious violent crime” committed against youth by a perpetrator using a firearm dropped 95 percent from 1994 to 2010.

    The study—“Violent Crime Against Youth, 1994-2010”–also discovered that American youth who were victims of a serious violent crime in 2010 were six times more likely to have been attacked by a perpetrator wielding a knife than one wielding a gun.
