    @kendall. You are a breath of fresh air. I appreciate your posts and your style.

    @Michael “Hey mark I want you to prove that CNN watchers are better informed than fox news watchers.”

    Wow, I didn’t know I was taking requests…lol. By the way, did I ever make that statement? And since you’re requesting that, I want you to prove that Fox News viewers are more informed than MSNBC.

  • Stan T.

    Holy Cow, Batman…..I finally agree with Mr Ed on MSNBC…speaking of the meteorite that hit the soviet union, he said he wishes he had been there…I agree, I wish he was at ground zero….lol…okay, I’m sorry….I shouldn’t resort to liberal attacks…

  • Kendall

    @ Mark2

    Thanks for commenting.

    I suspect that there are not very many younger viewers watching these three cable news networks. I wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out to be under 5% in the under-25 demo. I’m 29; I DVR my shows (including nightly network news broadcasts); and, if I’m home, I’ll flip on the tube to catch Maddow and Burnett live.

    But, I guess that’s the thing. Younger viewers are mostly out doing stuff. Ratings are so steady (especially for FNC…it’s pretty amazing) because of the older audience. They don’t vary their activities much anymore. So…8pm, 9pm, 10pm, clockwork.

    I’m just dying to know what the actually numbers are. Though, I doubt i’ll be surprised.

  • Mark2

    @StanT “…the percentage of the youth viewer…”

    I woudn’t consider 50 yr olds “Youth Viewers”.

    In general, MSNBC and Fox News do attract older viewers. However, the difference is that the very young viewers are tuning in to see shows Rachel Maddow as opposed to a Hannity.

    Rachel Maddow ranked No.1 in the 18-34 demo for Jan 2013.

    @Kendall “I suspect that there are not very many younger viewers watching these three cable news networks. I wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out to be under 5% in the under-25 demo”

    I agree. The vast majority of those young viewers who do watch shows about the news are watching Jon Stewart and Colbert.

  • Kendall

    @ Mark2

    I see that MSNBC had made significant gains (year over year) in the 25-54 demo. But, I didn’t see where it lists the 18-34 demo numbers. Did you mean to say 18-34 or 25-54? Or, am I just going blind? (A distinct possibility)

    @ Letmethink

    Thanks. I like to stay with just the facts. I don’t have much tolerance for spin. There are 2 or 3 others on this site who are of the same mind. But, of course, they’re appearance on here is rare. :)

  • Kendall

    @ Mark2

    “The vast majority of those young viewers who do watch shows about the news are watching Jon Stewart and Colbert.”

    Very true. I’m one of those people. (I watch them online when I can)

    Stewart and Colbert (left-leaning to be sure) do a very good job highlighting the rampart absurdity present in news and politics.

    I’m amazed right-leaning media outlets don’t have their own political comedy show(s). Are there any? My knowledge in this arena is decidedly limited.

    LOL, I get it, the joke is that you said ‘resort,’ even though every single thing you post is bile and spite. A good joke

  • Bobbyv

    Kendall,

    I think some here think Fox itself is a right leaning political comedy show :)

  • Stan T.

    wow…not one mention of Jessie Jackson Jr. and his stealing $750,000 worth of campaign funds for personal use…not even without mentioning he’s a democrat…He’s expected to get 5 years in prison…No mention of Sem Menendez either…if a republican sneezes we get 24/7 attacks from the left, a democrat breaks the law, and not a single word. But the MSM tells the truth…sure they do…

    OHOH…Obama scratched the side of his face during a speech today…come on, MSNBC, let’s see you mention that 155 times in one day…

  • Mark2

    @Kendall ” I didn’t see where it lists the 18-34 demo numbers. Did you mean to say 18-34 or 25-54?”

    I wish it did list all the numbers. However, it did state that Rachel Maddow ranked No.1 in the 18-34 demo for Jan 2013. It’s about 1/3 of the way down on that same link I posted.

  • Dreamer

    Hate to log in but, To Mrs D.D. (even though it was not asked to me),
    Scary article, although from one that lives in between several military instalations, I know that they listen.
    So they are going rural.
    My thought, would that not fall under the patriot act?

  • Kendall

    @ Mark2

    I found it. Thanks.

  • Mark2

    @Kendall “I’m amazed right-leaning media outlets don’t have their own political comedy show(s). Are there any? My knowledge in this arena is decidedly limited.”

    I think it’s because there’s so much more material from the right-wingers to be able to correct or make fun of. The conservative party makes it so easy for the Left to capitalize on…they just keep giving and giving.

  • Kendall

    @ Stan T.

    I caught Maddow tonight. She reiterated that this is the first time a Defense Secretary candidate has been filibustered.

    Are you sure Bush Sr’s first Defense Secretary choice got filibustered? I did a Google search and could not find anything that said that that had happened. What was the candidate’s name?

    It’s not that important…I just like to know what is true and what is not. If it’s not true that Hagel is the first SECDEF candidate to be blocked, I want to know. It will tell me something about Maddow’s honesty.

  • RedBarSoup

    Stan T.

    The all knowing man that posts in here that doesn’t even know what the 2nd amendment says! WOW!

  • RedBarSoup

    want to know. It will tell me something about Maddow’s honesty.

    Why only her? I’ve shown plenty examples of Fox News’ “honesty”. They are all BS.

    In terms of fillibustering a candidate

    http://www.salon.com/2013/02/14/when_republicans_play_with_fire_2/

    The other Cabinet choice to confront a filibuster was Dirk Kempthorne, George W. Bush’s pick to run the Interior department in 2006. Kempthorne was Idaho’s governor at the time, and he was also a former senator. The filibuster against him amounted to election year grandstanding by Florida’s Bill Nelson, who was up for reelection that November. To protest the Bush administration’s efforts to encourage oil and gas drilling off his state’s coast, Nelson placed a hold on the Kempthorne nomination, forcing Republicans to come up with 60 votes. Again, this slowed the nomination slightly, but it was purely a symbolic stand. Cloture passed by an 85-8 margin and Kempthorne was approved by the full Senate on a voice vote.
