    Narrator: Our Embassy was attacked and four brave Americans where killed in a terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2012.

    An hysterical Hillary: “What difference does it make.”

  • jeremy

    In a week HLN will be back in last and the CNN bump will disappear when the casual viewer turns off the TV.MSNBC needs to move Hayes out of the 8 pm slot he is killing Rachael’s ratings.
    Really big mistake, he is a disaster.

    @ Doug Z

    You are deluded!!! MSNBC only gets nobody, no people, no veiws!!! That’s all they attract. They are not the future of this country. Sorry

  • Doug Z

    That’s it????? MSNBC way under performs with all the hype……

    God! MSNBC News has major problems securing legitimacy especially with any demo. CNN killing MSNBC a run for their money. Seems people just want to hear about Benghazi. They prefer to tune in for a real murder trial over MSNBC theory.

  • Mark2

    I still can’t believe Andersonn Cooper beat O’Reilly again in the key demo.

  • Trent

    @Sicilian Papa

    They don’t care now. You think they’re going to care in 2016? HAHAHA

    I think I’ll post on this site more often. Some people on here are flat-out hilarious!!!

    Trent

    Calm Down, get out your government dope, do a bong hit or two, and tell yourself O. was a hero on Sept. 11, 2012.

    O. choked and tried to cover it up. Really there is nothing wrong with the first part. Seriously in a stressful situation sometimes you don’t make the right calls. Take it like a man and don’t try to cover it up.

    I could look past O. failing on Sept. 11, 2012 but I will not look past him trying to cover it up. That is a punk, girly man move!

    People do care about terror attacks. What are you talking about.

    HAHAHHAHAHA

    You’re a laugh riot!!! No matter how you slice it, you guys lose. The demographics are going against you. The economy is not improving. The possibility of a first female president will not be Hillary, Dems out in 2016 (if Hillary runs). Her coat-tails will lose a number of Senate seats. Face it…your party is almost irrelevant. LOL

  • Doug Z

    @Trent

    They do care now. You think they’re going to care in 2016, yes ? HAHAHA

    The George Zimmerman trial is set to start in a few weeks. If HLN can present a schedule/plan of high profile trials to advertisers, maybe then HLN will be able to cash in on victories in the demo.

  • Mark2

    @Jeremy

    They should’ve never let Ed Schultz go. However, keep in mind that CNN and HLN takes away viewers from MSNBC. So whenever there’s a breaking news story, MSNBC viewers turn to CNN. During breaking news, I turn to NBC and CNN. I turn to MSNBC when there’s political issue being debated in the Country.

  • Bobbyv

    Mark2,

    You would never turn to Fox for a debate but you turn to MSNBC?

  • Trent

    @Doug Z

    Wow! You right! I guess this means we should all get used to the phrase “conservative media bias”? HAHAHAHA

    Let’s see:

    NBC News – 7+ million viewers
    ABC News – 7+ million viewers
    CBS News – 6+ million viewers
    Huffington Post – Top 20 U.S. Websites
    New York Times – Top 40 U.S. Websites
    CNN News – Top 20 U.S. Websites

    Tell me again why MSNBC’s numbers (distorted by the recent flurry of breaking news and the Arias Trial) mean that much? ;)

  • Doug Z

    Jeff ghost writer for usa000000000000000000

    The Left wing kooks have no economic or jobs plan, no health insurance plan, no immigration plan except to food the work force with cheap labor for the rich…NO NOTHING..so the only thing they can do is Hide the Benghazi investagation….they have are not done the Fast and furious Shuffle……

    HLN is getting non news viewers. I watch them on weekends when they do the CSI and crime cases stuff.

  • Doug Z

    Papa will that hurt the Demos

    HLN found their calling! The Zimmerman trial would be a good one.

  • Joe

    I’m sure liberals are so upset that MSNBC is struggling. They really care that a tv network doesn’t do well in ratings compared to actually winning the election? I’ll say it a million more time for you conservative who are desperate. You keep winning the ratings on a cable news network. Wahoo. And Democrats keep winning the elections. I’ll take that any day.

    And CNN is doing awesome. Great to see a real news network beating Fox.
