    Get over fast to MSNBC. It’s their Going Out Of Business Sale. Everything must go, especially Madcow.

  • Ralph Hahn

    At 6PM, Baier beats Sharpton by a 2-1 margin.

    OUCH! That’s gotta sting like a bee!

  • Ralph Hahn

    I forget to INCLUDE the Best Part: Baier beats Sharpy by a 2-1 margin…in the money demo!

  • Raz

    Looks like MSNBC did well enough. But you have to be consistant.

  • Letmethink

    Early Start/Starting Point still not traction. Piers Morgan is sinking in numbers. Morning Joe not doing well.

  • Doug

    Speaking of going out of “business”, how much longer can FBN possibly last with those microscopic ratings? Got beat out by CNBC nearly 5 to 1!

    Ralph Hahn,

    “Get over fast to MSNBC. It’s their Going Out Of Business Sale. Everything must go, especially Madcow”

    The glasses are on Ralph ? Dr. Maddow finished as # 1, she one of smartest and most influential media figures out there.

  • Andies

    @Ralph.. you are pathetic lol.. sharpton hurting?.. NOT! MSNBC is still doing extremely well even well after the election no matter how much you want to spin it.. Anyhoo, the main point is no matter how many loonies out there watch Fox News.. there will never be a repulican president again if they keep being the stupid party.. So yeah whooooo for you Fox News doing cool in the ratings.. We got the bigger prize… FOUR MORE YEARS OF BARRRACKKK OBAMA … LOL..

  • detroit_fan

    @sam- maddow won 1 out of 3 groups and had less overall viewers, not exactly #1. i’m not even a republican but if you think maddow is influential i suggest you look up the term, she is far from it.

    @Andies- to assume 1 party will never win the presidency is absurd. democrats had a horrible streak going until clinton won, and many wrote the democrats off becasue of that period. things go in cycles, and they always will. as for obama, i suppose it’s good to be happy about winning the white house, but you have a GOP house so 99.9% of obamas agenda is DOA, so not sure there is a whole lot to be excited about there.

    maddow won 1 out of 3 groups and had less overall viewers, not exactly #1

    She on the only one that counts…..

    In the last thread Ratboy copy and pasted 4 times from Newsbusters…and this guy says he get’s his news from other places.

  • cathy

    I like Greg’s line on the Five. They were talking about school of choice and he said, “Liberal are only believe in choice before the child is born.”

    @Rat, I’m a weird person I know. I don’t support casual s*x. But if you don’t want a baby use two forms of birth control. If both the man and the woman use birth control at all times there are no unwanted pregnancies. I don’t understand what point the guy was trying to make. ‘I don’t wear a c****m. my girlfriend got PG. I’m so happy she had an ab**tion. Because of course it was not only better for me. But it was better for the baby too.’

  • RedBarSoup

    She won the only one that counts…**

  • Ralph Hahn

    MSNBC beats Hannity Special and Greta in the demo! Ouch that’s gotta hurt!

    Lets have a little math class. 8 posts minus 4 osts from Newsbusters = 4 posts from OTHER sources!!!!
    Sooooooo, I guess there are other sources! Sorry but fact is fact. Does anybody on the left need to know the definifion of FACT? :shock:

  • Jeff

    Ralph Hahn is the voice of stupidity, with the face to protect it!!!

    Fox News got their cans kick on a Friday night!

    Hannity got his @ss handed to Him!! That’s gonna leave a mark!

  • Ratboy

    @ cathy

    Maybe Jeffie can explain it to you right after he icks up anothr can of Lysol!

  • Jeff

    @ Lysol, thought that would inspire you. Lmao :lol:

    You’re still a douche!

    Wanna learn how to grow the economy? It sure aint Obama’s way!!

    North Dakota struggles to cope with its oil-boom prosperity

    The oil boom has meant explosive growth for North Dakota, but life there can be frustrating and lonely, as well as lucrative.

    WATFORD CITY, N.D. — His tan overalls splattered with oil field mud, 41-year-old trucker Scott Brevig sat next to his semitrailer truck inside a rented machine shop and cracked open a Full Throttle energy drink. It was 9:45 p.m.

    Brevig still had to fix a leak under the hood before he could huddle to sleep in a camper where he lives with his fiancée, housing too scarce and expensive in this booming region.

    A former Anoka painting contractor, Brevig took his car to the shop for repairs back home. Here, he’s had to figure out how to fix his own giant diesel machines because local shops are overloaded. “There’s no resources here,” he said, shrugging.

    But Brevig’s enthusiasm trumps his exhaustion. With an economy fueled by new oil-drilling techniques, “It’s a land of opportunity, by all means,” he said. “You can grow into whatever you want here.”
