    @Sicilian Papa: Is this National Live In Your Parents’ Basement Day,” where the “children” get to post everything they want?

    They cannot save MSNBC but they’re trying to save Obama and his Administration from being prosecuted for allowing the murder of four Americans, including a U.S. Ambassador?

    I am sure there are plenty more whistleblowers standing by to take down this administration’s lies and bumbles.

    And, in the end, Hillary will be reduced to a mere mention in a new story about Monica Lewinsky?

    Let’s stop wasting our time even reading the cr@p, which is the same cr@p every single day.

    And, Ratboy: Even though you are not an elected official in any town, county state or nationally, you’ve been ordered many times by the Peanut Gallery to put forth your economic plan as well as a list listing GOP victories during the Obama Obama administration.

    Why haven’t you done so yet?

  • Ratboy

    Chris Hayes cant even get a spike when there is big News!! Loser!

  • Tama

    If you look up the definition of LOSER in the dictionary you’ll find a photo of Chris Hayes.

  • rudy

    msnbc= loser like a song played to much you just get sick of it and turn it off

  • Ralph Hahn

    WOW! FNC WAY UP in the demo, MSDNC WAY DOWN. CNN beast Fox in the demo between 9-11pm, but Fox top dog in the demo every other time slot.

    They’re weeping REAL TEARS at MSNBC. Comcast has begun placing face pics of former MSNBS on the back of milk cartons. That’s REALLY got to leave a BIG POCK MARK.

  • Mark2

    CNN is on FIRE!!!

  • Ralph Hahn

    #former MSNBS ‘VIEWERS’…

  • Ratboy

    Rachel and Larry O suck pretty bad too considering the news of the day! Losers!

  • Dreamer

    Go Shep! He made it over 2 mil.

  • Ratboy

    Mark2 FIRED up a fat one!

  • rudy

    Usa888 you need to get out more. The world has left you behind.

  • Chriscee

    Even the days NEWS yesterday couldn’t help msnBS!! too bad for the liberals.

  • Ralph Hahn

    MSNBC IS ON FIRE! FIFTH (5TH) PLACE IN LAST NIGHT’S DEMO.! Get the Demorol out. Because this is The BIG Hurt!

  • rudy

    Jeff what up with numbers today.

  • Sicilian Papa


    Ralph, Ratboy

    I don’t like O. and his people, including Hillary, getting away with covering up a terror attack. I can handle incompetence. I even expect it but what they did knowingly lying about terror attack should be an impeachable offense by an a Republican or Democrat.

    MSNBC is sinking! They can’t even get numbers with all the news going on.

  • Chriscee


    USA and Jeffie will come up with some lame excuse and then go back to their daily talking points straight from ThinkProgress. It’s daily with those 2…or should I that one..who has another personality.

  • Stan T.

    I’m guessing that MSNBC will be way down today…what I saw of it they didn’t show any of the benghazi hearing…they just whinned about the fact people are trying to tell the truth….

  • Mark2

    CNN wins the Primetime key demo.

    Poor Fox News

  • Ralph Hahn

    @MPapa: MSNBC has not been a “cable news” station for a long time. It’s just a place for one-sided talking heads to lie, lie and add a damned lie and the Libs eat it up like Obama when he was eating dog.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I don’t think MSNBC will ever get viewers back. The viewers they lost either went to Fox or CNN. They are finished and the numbers will only get worse for them as time goes on.
