  • d.d.

    I have some sad news my brother passed away

    I wish there were words that would ease your pain. All I can do is recommend this video :

    Drowning Victim’s Visit to Heaven

    It is the experience of an Orthopedic Surgeon, Mary Neal.

    – –

    I your brother’s cancer hadn’t progressed beyond the liver, he may have avoided the late stage pain for there are no nerve endings in the liver itself. I hope that was the case.

  • usa8888

    Close down the cigarette companies through higher taxes and regs–the right wing probably would support selling cancer viruses if they could make a buck off it…

    I predict that Chris Hayes’ show will go the way of “The Point”…Nancy no can watchie. MSNBC, cut your losses now and in prime time, no less. Admit you tried to jam this boring, babbling,faster than fast talking, interrupting his guests, flailing body parts person (I wanted to say buffoon, but held myself back) at us and Ed’s fans have exited Stage Left. Give me Randi, Mike Papp, Ron R. G. Garafolow, Sam S, anyone other than HIM. BBL………Had trouble logging on today and lost 2 posts.

    Can anyone understand a word Al Sharpton speaks. How in the world does this guy stay on television?

    If Ed of the Ed Show had been black…he would have never been cancelled.

  • 1966

  • Mr. Nielson Ratings


    Will continue to struggle, as they have lost their way with ‘fair’ reporting.

    Instead of ‘Reporting the News’, they continue to have a blatant slanted view of issues. It is too obvious, and this will continue to prevent them from attracting ‘new’ viewers, which they desperately need.

  • Mr. Nielson Ratings

    What’s the deal with Rachel Maddow.

    Neat the end of each segment she makes a comment, then as the Camera
    ‘fades out’, she turns her head down and looks at her notes,,,,,

    In a gesture, like she knows better than you………

    Definitely some psychological issues with her…..

  • Ralph

    CNN, Please remove the failure troll…. PIERS Morgan is a proven Loser !!!!
    This guy gets killed every night. He is very hard to stomach….

  • Mr. Nielson Ratings

    Piers Morgan and Donny Deutsch,

    Can it get any worse on CNN.

    Isn’t this the same Network that hired Eliot Spitzer.

    Can Anthony Weiner be next…….???

    And putting Margaret Hoover as the ‘Center Chair’ on ‘Get To The Point’,

    Margaret Hoover,,,,,,,,did her best work as a 5-Minute Guest on Bill O’Reilly’s ‘The Factor, and when she was a ‘Once-A-Month Guest’.

    Who’s running “CNN” = Cartoon News Network
