    OK I got carried away lets go fo 25 years

  • usa8888

    Here’s a psychographic profile of Fox’s audience: older to very old, white, numerous racists, numerous bigots, narrow-minded, under-educated, strongly religious, anti-government oriented, insensitive to people’s issues…did I miss anything?

  • Ralph Hahn

    THIS moronic observation from Mark2brainless always comes out when FOX crushes everyone in the demo in every time slot:

    >>> Cable News keeps slipping:

    Broadcast News = 23 million unique viewers

    Cable News = 4 million unique viewers

    Ouch!!! <<<

    The broadcast networks (CBS, NBC and ABC) give you all just 22 minutes of news at 6:30pm edt and the cable news networks gives news and opinion 24/7. It's apples and onions!

  • usa8888

    Denver cops are VERY happy with Obama and recognize that the vast majority of Coloradans favor Obama’s gun policies. Of course, the far right fringe minority does not….Chriscee is one of the minority…

  • Ralph Hahn

    @ussr666: PROVE everything with actual evidence to your racist statement above my last post! You’re afraid to because you know it’s usa888/Jeffie/Mark2 bullsH-t.

  • svr

    i cant’ understand why black people don’ t see the racist media for what it is . The whities at CNN and MSNBC continue to patrionize ahd protect the poor black president. It’s like having the only black kid in school and everybody has to handle him with kiddies glove because they don’t want to offend him, and so everything everybody says and does is racist. Why should president obama be treated any different than any of the white presidents before . i find whats going on in the mainstream media patrionizing and downright racist. if black people want to be treated as equal there should be no special treatment……….

  • usa8888

    Ralphie–if Fox Fake News didn’t have the old segment, with the psychographic attributes I listed above, they would be out of business. Slimebaugh would, too. But there are lots of undereducated suckers for Fox and Slimebaugh to take money from….

  • usa8888

    Ralphie–it’s a fact and the ad agencies have the data…..

  • usa8888

    svr–it is precisely because of racists like you that Obama won the election handily…and the deme will continue to win….

  • Chriscee

    Denver cops are NOT happy with Obama. The do NOT like being used as a prop for the failure in chief Obama

  • Chriscee

    Can’t say the words Chicago or urban..or you will be labeled a racists. Democrats are the most racists of any one.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Fox News leads in the 25-54 and 35-64 demos and total audience by a very large audience share. What you FAIL to mention, or maybe it still hasn’t reached your brain just yet, is that there are 25 and 35 year olds within those demos as well as the 54 and 64 year olds. For you to call people “undereducated suckers” for watching Fox News is a personal insult. For all I know, you may have a ten Phd’s, but you haven’t showed ANY intelligence since you started posting here.

  • Chriscee

    Obama is doubling down on the mortgage meltdown that he himself as a senator helped create. Everyone must own a home even if you don’t qualify

  • usa8888

    Fox News is DOMINATED by old viewers with the psychographic profile indicated above…..

  • betty

    Obomba’s “Accomplishments”…..
    1. he closed Gitmo as he bloviated he would….NOT.
    2. he ended the “correct” war in Afghanistan as he bloviated…NOT.
    3. he cut the Deficit in half as he bloviated….NOT.
    4. he added Trillions “TO” the deficit….DONE.
    5. his machinations divides the country day after day….in progress.
    6……did I forget to mention ObombaCare ?

  • Chriscee

    More people on food stamps than ever before..thanks to Obama. More blacks than ever before on food stamps.. thanks to Obama

  • svr

    watching the media handle president Obama with protective gloves make a black woman sick to my stomach. President Obama won the election because he was all about freebies and handout and give away and the gimme this and gimmie that society that we have become couldn’t help themself.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Rush Limbaugh has nothing to do with Fox News and vice versa. As a lib, are you a soulmate of The New York (Plagering) Times?

  • Ratboy

    I can prove that I am not a racist, bigot, or prejudice. I have no idea what color, race or creed zero x 4 is but I would still like to slap the stupid out of him/her/it! :shock: :lol:

  • usa8888

    Denver and Colorado overwhelmingly support President Obama’s gun control policies over the lunatic Pierre’s absurd policies of giving every criminal and insane person access to mass murder weapons with no checks whatsoever. The whole country is against the NRA extremist leader, even his own memebers…….
