    MSNBC STILL NUMBER THREE! Just a slight gain over CNN in 9pm slot.

    MSNBC is sinking faster than the Statue of Liberty of her perch.

  • Tama

    so….is this going to be the new normal? With CNN overtaking MSNBC in the key demo and overall ratings? minus Maddow/Piers of course.

  • Ralph Hahn

    OFF her perch.

  • Tama

    Sissy Hayes lost to Nancy Grace haha

  • Ralph Hahn

    Even O’Reilly’s 11PM rerun scored better than any other cable news show in the demo.

    Biden Cracks Joke at Memorial Service for Slain Police Officer

    “One of my favorite poets is Seamus Heaney,” said Biden, who is of Irish descent. “I know the congressman thinks I always quote Irish poets because I’m Irish. That’s not the reason I do it. I quote Irish poets because they’re the best poets and that’s the reason why,” Biden deadpanned. “And the Collier family knows that, right?”

    Biden continued, “But all kidding aside…”

    Poooooooooooooor Rachel!

    Big Sis: Obama Admin Can Pick Which Laws to Enforce

    During her testimony on the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano declared that she, President Barack Obama and other political officials at the top of this administration have the authority to decide which laws to enforce, and which ones to ignore.

  • Ratboy

    Ed Shultz is laughing his butt off……Oh Wait!………….he don’t have a show yet! OOOOPSY! :lol: :lol:

  • Doug Z

    Even Gang of Eight member Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) admits the amount of authority the bill would cede to the administration is controversial. “Biggest challenge on #immigrationreform has been well founded lack of trust that Obama administration will enforce the law,” Rubio Tweeted on Tuesday. “Its [sic] a big problem”

  • Doug Z

    State Department and President have the blood of the Boston Marathon Bombing on their hands. Actions have consequences. I would expect the Boston Marathon survivors and the families of those killed to sue the U.S. Government for their losses and injuries. After all, “the government allowed these Muslim terrorists to immigrate”. The liberal do-good er U.S. government paid for the housing, they food stamps, tuition and travels back to their beloved country while training to bomb the U.S. The United States government is solely responsible and needs to learn its lesson about political correctness. The payment should come from the salaries of the state department, the president and the congress who allow such a debacle.

    Smoke and Mirrors from the king once again!!

    No furloughs for ObamaCare officials

    The office implementing most of President Obama’s healthcare law is not furloughing its workers as a result of sequestration, its director said Wednesday.

    Gary Cohen, director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, said Wednesday that his office has not cut its workers’ hours and pay as a result of the automatic budget cuts that went into effect in March.

    Republicans have accused the Obama administration of politicizing the sequester by targeting highly visible programs like airport security and White House tours.

    The fact that ObamaCare officials haven’t been furloughed shows that the cuts are political, Rep. Greg Harper (R-Miss.) said Wednesday

  • Mike

    Another good night for Fox. Hmm, I see that Maddow is trending down towards Morgan – that says a great deal regarding the quality of Dr. Maddow’s show. Yes, it does look as if these numbers are the new normal.

    Feds spend at least $890,000 on fees for empty accounts

    If you are a federal worker on furlough this week — or an airline passenger delayed by federal furloughs — you might save your blood pressure, and go read another story.

    This one is about all the money the U.S. government spends on .?.?. nothing.
    It is one of the oddest spending habits in Washington: This year, the government will spend at least $890,000 on service fees for bank accounts that have nothing in them. At last count, Uncle Sam has 13,712 such accounts, each with a balance of zero.

    These are supposed to be closed. But nobody has done the paperwork yet.

    So even now — as the sequester budget cuts have begun idling workers and frustrating travelers — the government is still required to pay $65, per year, per account, to keep these empty accounts on the books.

  • RealityChick

    The Boston bombers collected welfare…doesn’t that make you want to vote Democrat next election? We paid for 4 citizens to be killed. I am so sure the family of the 8yr old boy feels good about their tax money supported the monsters who killed him. These “immigrants” were granted asylum and automatically qualified to collect welfare, got scholarships to go to the best schools, drove fancy cars, their mother stole from a high end retailer. All on our dime. Go liberals.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Doug Z: I truly don’t understand your lengthy response above. I agree with most of your opinion, but this line shocked the hell out of me because it just contradicts everything else you had written.

    >>> The United States government is solely responsible and needs to learn its lesson about political correctness. <<<

  • Ralph Hahn

    Of all of the programs listed in their timeslots above, “The Five” has the highest 25-54 number of all the others.

  • Dave

    Doug Z. Shame on you.Bush lied us into war and killed hundred of thousands and you want to blame Obama for Boston.
    To bad you have sh-t for brains.
