    Fox News is “struggling” and still manages to place #3. Imagine if they weren’t “struggling”. If you want to control the content of a website, it’s not difficult to run your own blog.

    Oh you msnbc ppl really crack me up. I’m my gonna argue with you or your ignorance. You keep saying fox has lost audience, yet they’re still ranked #1 in cable news. Get a damn clue already.

    You do realize that something can STILL be losing an audience and or money or WHATEVER it is WHILE losing audience or money…..I’m the richest person with 500 billion dollars. Yet am losing 50 million a month. The second richest person has 400 million. I hope you can understand basic grade school math. :)

    Keynes I did go to TVNewsers and Fox still beat everybody by a wide margin. Even Friday O’Reilly beat all others and Juan Williams (Liberal) filled in. When is Eric Bolling filling in for Mr. Schultz?
