    Sadly for CNN, this probably means that they won’t be able to take the ratings victories in the demo (during the week of the bombings) to the bank, unless they get a crystal ball or lobby/campaign for loose immigration laws, which they would never do.

    So much for FNC losing all their viewers. :grin:
