    Those of us who frequent this board…and are reasonable people…need to ignore the people who like hurl NON FACTS and Partisan BS. Namely Mark2 and USA8888 and a couple more….

    They are useless..have no facts…and most likely working for OFA (I won’t tell you what I think those intials stand for…


  • Tested

    What a weird set of ratings. HLN was basically 2nd and CNN 4th?

  • Doug Z

    cathy none of my parents age that I knew worked, not one.

  • Cathy

    Yep Maddow took the demo but get killed in total viewers.

    But hey even a broken clock is right twice a day.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Betty: >>> USR666 is stewing in his own Juice now that MsNBC is a Laughing Stock and
    their temporary better numbers are History. Deal with it or Die! LOL. <<<

    Betty, all I can say is <3.

  • Chriscee

    @Tested…..HLN is showing the Jodi Arias Trial non stop. Once that trial is over and she is sent to prison..HLN will be a NON factor until the next high profile murder case.

  • Chriscee

    lol @ Cathy….hilarious @ broke clock right twice a day…love that!!

  • Ralph Hahn

    Maddow took the demo by ONLY *One Thousand Viewers*.

  • Bsotgnw


    Stil waiting for the FACTS you disagreed with

  • Ralph Hahn

    @FITZY: ROFLMBO. Another douch-bag.

  • Cathy

    The anti-christ is pro-life? If the beast is about you isn’t pulling the strings of the party that’s taking to save babies from being murdered.


    you righties never let facts get in your way come onlol.BTW I dislike most republithugs that is not racist its inevitable lol It is most unfortunate that most are white like me

  • Ralph Hahn

    Oh, an P.S. “FITZY.” (lol). If the antichrist is around, he’s probably in the area of the White House.

  • UpAndOver

    Ed flys off into the sunset…..

    Ed Schultz Broadcasting, LLC, Fargo, ND, has a 1995 Citation Ultra (N469ES)

    Current market value $1.5 million (11,000 TT, a bottom of the barrel Jet)

  • Matthew

    No need to speculate about how lower marriage rates might be creating an illusion of income inequality (they aren’t), when we can look at the 2010 Census ASEC data; of people who earned income in 2010, be they married, single, or living in a multi-earner household, 75% of individuals earned less than $50,000, and 48% earned less than $25,000.

    The decline of labor’s value and the middle class isn’t misleading mathematics, it’s the real, miserable trend of the past 30 – 40 years, ushered in thanks to a combination of globalization, neoliberal policy, and the working class being propagandized into betraying themselves to protect the bottom line of a very, very small group of people. Enjoy your new Gilded Age, cheers :mrgreen:


    so doug why dont you call out ratturd or ralph(UPCHUCK)as they and bitty do nothing but sling mud and call names ie idiot .douche etc.Pro life in theory pro DEATH PENALTY in fact morally inconsistent and illogical like most your positions lol

  • Ralph Hahn

    @FITZY: >>> …I dislike most republithugs that is not racist its inevitable lol It is most unfortunate that most are white like me. <<<

    "republithugs (plural) that IS not racist?" Looks like we have another 4th grader here, folks. With grammar like that, he fits right in with the other losers.

    Didn't you mean "…that ARE no racist?…" I think that most schools have classes at night for people who need remedial reading, writing and pretending to be a grown-up. LOL!!!

  • Cathy

    Doug Z.: I don’t know a mom who didn’t work. In the 50s 1 in 3 women worked outside the home. Which I could post links. So, you’ll have to google it.

  • David Howell

    HLN picking up the slack from CNN during this trial season it seems.

    Amused by the effective Hannity-Maddow tie in 25-54.

  • mikey o

    For a side thats says they are winning over the american people Never seen so much angry and hate. What a bunch of sore winners, Dont want to see them when they lose if that happens better have the men in the white coats and larger butterfly nets on alert.
