    My girl friend loves Nancy grace. I have to watch sometimes.
    You now know I love her.
    Nancy loves dead blondes tooooo.

  • Doug Z

    There is a lot of famous people say they don’t watch fox news and then when asked for examples why not… they cant name one reason.
    The truth is they have no idea and cant name anything but think they are cool and relevant.
    But a lot of people lock step along with Hollywood stars like Lindsy Lohan or Ben Affleck. and agree that there should not be Fox News or any counter balance or questions about the messiah Obama.

  • usa8888

    Jeff is correct–Fox Fake News corners the market on the old, uneducated wight wingers. Fox’s audience is very small considering the 53 million votes Obama received in defeating the right wing last November. Nonetheless, Rupert makes millions off right wing suckers, just like slimebaugh does…..

  • Jo

    I used to watch MSNBC but now it’s guns guns, guns. Enough already you are unwatchable.

  • usa8888

    The key point is that austerity practices by a government during a fragile economy or recession is a recipe for DISASTER—Europe is a perfect example. After their austerity practices, they have massive unemployment and negative economic growth. You don’t cut spending to grow an economy and jobs! The right wing uneducated can’t grasp this because they have no education. Obama is setting a course to control the sale and use of mass murder weapons (which 90% of the country agrees with); he is addressing global warming (but the creationist right wing doesn’t believe the earth is more than 10,000 years old so they have trouble understanding global warming); America is the global leader now is oil and natural gas production; Obama has made more money available for college education over the objections of right wingers; and he is trying to reduce health costs which the GOP is content to see increase 100% every 10 years.

  • usa8888

    Jo–how many assault weapons do you own? And do you think the rightwing needs them to overthrow the government?

  • Doug Z

    Jeff
    the revenue for MSNBC is not good . I thought all that mattered were young viewers. It looks like they like total viewers a lot.

    Advertising revenue in millions
    Fox News $663
    MSNBC $208
    CNN/HLN $547

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Doug Z: Sorry if I misread your post. It ‘appeared’ like you were working in cohoots with Jeffie. I know that HE has a mental block about comparing apples to pineapples. lol

  • Ralph Hahn

    ROFLMAO: usa888 aka known as the Unpatriot, AGAIN dares to compare Fox’s total audience versus Obama’s vote total. Using your theory, 53 million people is NOTHING compared with about 320 million Americans. Of course, you have to deduct those ineligible to vote based on children and convicts. Compared to our total population, 53 million Obama votes and 320 million Americans is HARDLY a mandate!

    The key point is that austerity practices by a government during a fragile economy or recession is a recipe for DISASTER—Europe is a perfect example of what happens when you run out of other peoples money. After their spending practices, they have massive unemployment and negative economic growth. You have no money for spending to grow an economy and jobs! The left wing uneducated can’t grasp this because they have no education. Obama is setting a course to control the sale and use of mass murder weapons (which 10% of the country agrees with); he is addressing global warming (but the immoral left wing doesn’t believe the earth is more than 10,000 years old so they have trouble understanding global warming); America is short oil and natural gas production; Obama has made less money available for college education over the objections of right wingers; and he is trying to increase health costs which the GOP is to stop the increase 100% every 10 years.

    Obama love unarmed peasants

    I wonder if you think before you cut and paste. Guns against Obama tanks Jets , ect ,ect. Not a good idea

  • Doug Z

    Jeff

    Fox has been able to convince Madison Avenue that the viewers it can deliver are just as valuable as those of its competitors. The channel reaches a wider audience than MSNBC or CNN, particularly in prime time, a day part highly valuable to advertisers.

    Nevertheless, Fox’s high ad rate in comparison to its news channel competitors suggests that advertisers are not shy about buying time on a network with highly political content in its prime-time hours.

    As was the case in 2010, Fox was projected to increase its license fee revenue in 2011 by a wider margin than that of CNN/HLN or MSNBC. The channel was expected to generate 11% more license fee revenue in 2011 than it did in 2010, which is double that of CNN/HLN (5%) and MSNBC (5%).

  • Doug Z

    Jeff

    Fox continued to make the case to cable providers that its programming is essential to any cable package, and thus the fee it charges per subscriber should be increased. Providers appear to agree, and thus the fees that Fox charges cable providers for the right to carry the channel—which are passed along to consumers—have spiked in recent years.

  • usa8888

    Ralphie–we are focusing on the eligible voters in the US and Obama blew the right wing kooks away, in spite of their voter suppression and gerrymandering. When Obama won, it blew Fox Fake News away (and Rove in particular).

  • Doug Z

    Jeff

    Profit in Thousands
    FNC $779.8
    MSNBC $168.8
    CNN/HLN $378.8

  • Doug Z

  • Mark2

    NBC News Revenues = $2.1 Billion

    Ouch!!! That’s gonna have some heads exploding!

  • Ratboy

    Hey! Mark2! WHO CARES???????!!!!!!!!

  • usa8888

    Rat–we just want to hear your right wing accomplishments–the fact that you can not list any shows the mentality of Fox Fake News’ audience…and you are one of the smarter Fox Fake News audience…

  • Jeff

    @ralphie, your delusion is established, you repeat on this site your daily dump of empty mean comment……after your apparent bad day of trying to be a tough guy, and the folks around you tell you to shut the F up. So you come here to vent…… You couldn’t hand a Cheeseburger out a drive thru window, let alone teach anyone anything.

    Just so we are clear.
