    This just in: the CPAC comedy convention searched the 315 million people in the US and finally found a black doctor who supports the right wing cause–one in a million—not bad….

    @Mark2………………..Nice spin. LOL

    @DougZ “the survey”

    What did the survey say?

    Joe, are you still a little tipsy from St Pattys day? 45% of what FOX does is NEWS! 15% of what MSNBC does is NEWS.
    So now you say that MSNBC opinon is fact based but FOX isn’t.

    Whew!! where DO they come from?

  • Jeff

    Seems the neo cons Fox Fake news lovers had nothing to do last Friday night. Ralph Hahn & ratboy had nothing to do because they have the voices of stupidity with the faces to protect em……..what a douche!

  • Doug Z

    Mark2

    What Pew found is that the outlier is MSNBC: 85% opinion, 15% reporting. Fox News, however, is much closer to CNN. Whereas CNN spends 54% of the time reporting and 46% on commentary, Fox News spends 55% on commentary and 45% reporting.

    By tomorrow, though, these findings will be forgotten and the media will go right back to lying with comparisons of Fox and MSNBC.

  • Mark2

    @DougZ “45% of what FOX does is NEWS!”

    And that is exactly why I wanted you to post that. That statement is not the same statement Ralph Hahn made. This is what Ralph Hahn posted:

    “Since we now know that Fox News draws 45% of news-watching viewers”

    Then he posted this:

    “I quoted from the survey someone put up here today that says Fox viewers watch for the news 45% vs. 55% for Fox opinonated shows”

    I guess he was confused and didn’t know exactly how to word it, so I corrected him on both statements.

  • Mark2

    @DougZ “Fox News spends 55% on commentary and 45% reporting.”

    Finally, now this is the correct statement.

  • Ratboy

    NOT PROPLE, AIRTIME!!! I guess I was too generous with the 7th grade math test

    study — which came as part of Pew Research Center’s annual “State of the Media” report — states that opinionated programming comprised 85 percent of MSNBC’s airtime (versus 15 percent of “factual reporting”). Meanwhile, Fox News had opinion 55 percent of the time, with 45 percent straight news

  • Mark2

    @DougZ

    Now do you see the difference between what you’re saying:

    “Fox was in between at 55% commentary and 45% reporting.

    …And what Ralph Hahn said:

    “Since we now know that Fox News draws 45% of news-watching viewers” or even “…that says Fox viewers watch for the news 45% vs. 55% for Fox opinonated shows”

    @DougZ “Fox News spends 55% on commentary and 45% reporting.”

    Finally, now this is the correct statement.

    You know I am fair and balanced. I did not vote for a Republican for president since Ronald Reagan.

  • Doug Z

    Another fascinating find is the erosion of CNN between 2007 and 2012:

    The percentage of CNN evening programming filled with interviews jumped from 30% in 2007 to 57% in 2012. At the same time, the airtime for edited packages plunged from 50% to 24%

  • Mark2

    Also, keep in mind that the 45% reporting doesn’t specify the leaning factor of that anchor who’s doing the reporting.

    When Bret Baier does his “reporting”, we all know how he leans.

    When Fox & Friends do their reporting, we all know how they lean…lol.

  • Doug Z

    More libs, Democrats

    That’s less about saving money and more about pushing a left-wing political agenda through the likes of Anderson Cooper, Erin Burnett, and Piers Morgan. Obama has benefited greatly from that “erosion.”

  • usa8888

    The American people recognize Fox Fake News as just that– FAKE. If you want to know the REAL story, you go to a real news network…And the American people recognize the right wing GOP as TOAST…when Rove calls it Toast, it’s toast…..

  • Doug Z

    Mark2 and Jeff

    Fox is the most balanced of all of the news services. I find it hilarious that lefties see bias everywhere if people are discussing views that don’t match their own. you are the most narrow-minded and bigoted group I have ever met. If people don’t agree with you, they are not entitled to their own opinions. No, they are ignorant, evil people. you can’t even grant people the rights to have views unless they coincide with yours. Do you really listen to yourselves?

  • Doug Z

    See this program – proves my point.

    It is racist program

    I told you it is not a person

    , but a program . Just look at his post.

    We are taking about racist and he prints this . then no reply. Just keep up his program post. He works for somebody and his post are done by a program not a person

  • Doug Z

    Biased how? Liberal, conservative?
    Greta. Lib
    Shep. Lib
    Hannity. GOP bootlicker.
    Baier. Not biased.
    Doocy. Which one for they are interchangeable dolts.

    FOX for the most part is balanced. Something you and the Neo Bolsheviks despise.
    You are an propagandist , seriously, but your handlers call it useful.

  • Mark2

    @DougZ “Fox is the most balanced of all of the news services”

    Wait a minute, I thought you guys said that PEW Research stated that CNN was the most balance.

    Got’em!!!
