    Fox is getting some very nice number. Yea Jane Valez-Mitchell and Evening Express, pretty good numbers.

  • usa8888

    Fox’s ratings spike is due to fox Fake stirring up their uneducated audience with the benghazi Boondoggle. Fox Fake makes the uneducated think these”scandals” mean something by distorting the facts, thus giving the extinct right wing GOP party members hope their party is still viable. It is NOT>…

  • old Mike

    Megan Kelly had noted Attorney Ted Olson on her Fox program this afternoon. He is representing the Koch Brothers who are on the IRS target program. He wrote a letter a year and a half ago to the I.R.S. that the U. S. Constitution does not allow mistreatment of citizens by the government and cited the phrase in it. He added that this was the reason of our Declaration of Independence – to free the public from oppression by government.
    Could a former University of Chicago Professor who taught Constitutional Law not know this. OMG

  • AppleStinx

  • Joe

    For any normal people here and not the delusional extreme right wing nuts. Have you ever seen people literally come on a site and say the same thing everyday of their lives? It’s just sad. I guess it’s all they have when the Republicans lose every election.

  • Chriscee

    It must really SUCK to be Obama…..

    Failing economy
    Rising unemployment numbers
    IRS Scandal
    AP Sandal
    Benghazi Scandal
    Fast and Furious Scandal
    EPA Scandal
    Holder can’t tell the truth
    It rains on Obama today in the rose garden
    His favorite ab.orti.on doctor goes to prison for the rest of his life

    and today

    Second appeals court invalidates Obama’s NLRB recess appointments

    hahaha so gotta love that.

  • usa8888

    this just in: right winger ISSA has so far refused to let the public hear Pickering’s and Mullen’s testimony….because it will show the Benghazi Boondoggle…conducted by Fox Fake and right wing kooks…

  • SteveB

    Jodi Aris is bringing HLN up.. She is gonna get Death. their Ratings will End here Soon.

  • SnapTie

    Obama seems to know nothing. I’ve said that for 4 1/2 years now.

  • Ralph Hahn

    us-ahole: WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE you should have to back up your own wild statements about FNC’s audience being 2/3rds ‘elderly’??? C’MON! It’s been almost a week since I challenged you to produce proof of your statements. Not to do so would mean a) You don’t have any legit source material, or (likely) b) you made it up as you make everything else? And, no BS about MY MATH. I never said 2/3rds or anything like you have done. Any child above 6 can see that you just change the subject as if people here can’t read what I write.

    Be a man for a change! Own up to your rantings.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee has no money in the market so she in unaware that US corp’ profits are at all time highs…and she doesn’t care about helping the economy and jobs anyway…rest easy, Chris, Obama is in charge and you should feel blessed…..

    Dont say anything over on the other Thread Ralph.. or we will get IT FROM THE PIT/dung dung . It will take them about 6 hours to realize the new numbers are out.
    **************************
    I just left two posts there, related to what had last been posted over there, so hopefully dung dung and MFIT will be busy arguing with me there to see we aren’t there anymore…lol

  • Raz

    HLN got some good numbers because of Jodi Arias, the jury was deciding if her actions in the murder of Travis Alexander could qualify her to get the death sentence. The jury desided that they were, so the death penalty is on the table along with life in prison.

    Conservatives trust Fox News and more conservatives watch the news. No true independents go to fox news. They go to CNN or regular network channels.

    ***************************************
    That statement is TOTALLLY untrue. Until 2008, I was a democrat and I always watched Fox News, because they were are the only ones who give both sides…and let you decide…
