    Dont know, I took the complant box out just in case LOL

    @S Papa

    At least he’s consistent :-)

  • HRJ

    Can’t we all just get along?

    I am very tired of the breaking news stories about the Boston bombings. I feel for those who were hurt and killed. Enough is enough. Let us go back to talking about how President BO kicked Romneys butt this past November. Let us talk about Karl Rove and how he was pissed at the Fox news numbers people who called Ohio for BO. Let us talk about anything except the Boston bombings. No more breaking news, please.

    @Sicilian Papa

    The primetime averages do seem to be off. Even as primetime are the hours of 8, 9 and 10pm in the table above, the A25-54 demo should have looked something like:
    FNC – 281K
    MSNBC – 190K
    HLN – 190K
    CNN – 186K
    CNBC – 82K

  • AppleStinx

    (FNC – 287K)

  • Sicilian Papa



    Ah, the good old days, before everyone knew the Dems were weak on terror. Or how about Dem lawmakers wanting to opt out of Obamacare.

  • Sicilian Papa

    It is a new day but you still own the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media. So sleep well, O. does, knowing they have his back.

  • Coffee Steve

    Movie time

    Thanks. I didn’t watch it, but thought it would be a show about hillbilly lineage, dynasties, royalties, etc.

  • Chriscee

    LEFT wing priorities:

    1) Support Ab.ortionists like Kermit Gosnell and say Planned Parenthood makes you blush.

    2) Make it so that NO ONE in the USA can own a gun.

    3) PROTECT private jet owners from beings TAXED.

    4) Make sure that no one can believe in God and the Bible.

    5) RAID Social Security, Medicare and medicaid to make it look like they have a surplus. When in fact there was NO SURPLUS.

    6)Taking 716 BILLION dollars from MEDICARE and then lying about it.

    7) promote racism TO THE MAX, along with bigotry and general backward thinking

    8) worship lunatics like Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz and Rachel Maddow and then send them all money as well.

    9) Attend the DNC Comedy Convention where GOD IS TAKEN OUT THEIR PLATFORM.

    10) watch msnBS–the propaganda arm of the left wing (bias 24/7)

    11) ruin the economy by spending big, implementing massive taxes and regulations some that should NEVER BE DONE IN OBAMA INDUCED recession or depression.


    13) Pretending that HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT is good for the economy.

    14) Ignoring the fact that 1 in 5 households is now on FOOD STAMPS.

    15) Tax Hard Working Americans out the wazoo

    16) Spend like drunken sailors

    17) Obstruction, obstruction, obstruction

    Chriscee- Beck has never been right in his life……

    Shows how little you know…Glenn Beck predicted the Muslim Brotherhood would take over Egypt…the left-wing moron news agencies ALL said he was a crazy loon…fast forward and the president of Egypt is the head of the Muslim Brotherhood…

    @The rat should be embarrassed because of his lack of brain power to state any right wing accomplishments….

    Is that all he should be embarrassed about?

    @Our favorite mexican restaurant has made the switch to FOX News from cnn…..

    After how many complaint letters or suggestion box notes??

    it’s nothing new…my local hospital chanced to Fox NEws for their waiting rooms. And years ago the McDonalds…I forget the name of the city…but it’s in california…the tv by the kids toys has cartoons, the one in the more adult area has Fox News…and EVERYONE was watching intently.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee is CAUSING high unemployment by OBSTRUCTION on fiscal and monetary policy due to her ignorance…..

  • Stan T.


    Fox News has gone to other things. They do a short report if anything new happens, but otherwise there is other things in the world…as for the liberal media, what do you expect? If they don’t cover the Boston Bombing 24/7, they’d have to cover things like the economy, or Obama purposely causing hurt because he doesn’t want sequestration, even though everyone knows everything he’s doing is political…

  • usa8888

    Chriscee, due to her lack of education, doesn’t understand you don’t cut spending in a recession or fragile economy…but she doesn’t care because she thinks the government has no role in the economy or jobs…

  • usa8888

    Chriscee is a religious right wing kook who supports Insanitorum and Lian Ryan, both of whom want to eliminate birth control and both support the failed Personhood Amendment…
