  • Sicilian Papa

    CNN is losing second place. I was tuning in some recently. They started going back to protect Barrack Obama mode and I tuned them out again.

  • Tama

    Another day another butt-licking for MessNBC

  • Chriscee

    Same out come every day. msnBS fails like Obama

  • Ratboy

    this is just too easy to comment on. The loons lose any chance of saying things are looking good for their trusted messengers of the word according to Obama! And by the way those words are mostly lies!!! :lol: :lol:

  • SteveB

    How Soon will it be that MSDNC closes its Door..

    More Democrats still Trusting and Watching Fox then are tuning into The Barack Obama Defense Channel……………

    Comcast has got to be wondering how they can get rid of all those terrible TV talkers and get some real people in ..

  • Sicilian Papa

    Hayes has a big night with 155,000 in key demo and Maddow is at least respectable with 229,000.

    Send Larry O. to the showers!

    Tingles has a huge day with 138,000 in key demo at 7pm. It may be people tuning in to see a freak show.

    Still pathetic but an improvement over their recent showings.

  • usa8888

    Another day of Lawrence Welk elderly right wingers for Fox Fake.

  • Sicilian Papa

    When you are scoring under 100,000 in the key demo for every time slot except 9pm. These numbers look pretty good.

  • Hillbilly

    FNC rules, MSNBC & CNN drools. :razz:

  • usa8888

    this just in: Fox Fake keeps pushing the bogus GOP attempted smearing of Obama to cover the GOP’s complete lack of plan for jobs and economy…..

  • Cheryl Lynn

    What up with Rachel? Get too liberals for all her girlfriends? Last year at this time, she was giving Hannity a run.

  • Hillbilly

    Another subset of the papers peer reviewed & then taking a subset of the subset to get the 97% number. Nobama or somebody using his twitter account fell for this nonsense. :roll:

    The quote below is from one of those who took part in getting the paper published.

    ———————————-

    The paper set out to better understand the level of consensus on AGW in the published literature. We rated 12,000 papers and found that 32% accept it. 66% show no position. And 0.7% reject AGW.

    Now how the got the 97%. Of the 32% that accepted AGW, 97% said humans are the main cause. So it’s 97% of the 32%, NOT 97% of the 12,000 papers reviewed.

  • usa8888

    This just in: Heritage Foundation , the rught wing organization led by Jim Demeneted, suggests pushing the Benghazai Boondoggle and IRS tea leave investigation in order to cover the fact the GOP has NO viable program for anything and have accomplished nothing but obstruction for 4 years…

  • Hillbilly

    Chriscee – t’s now official, Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers has got to be every conservative’s favorite liberal.

    ——————————-

    She’s TZCA’s girl friend. ;)

  • usa8888

    Approx 2/3 of Fox Fake’s audience is over 65 and right wing kooks….with questionable education levels…

  • SteveB

    I believe that Rachels Friends left her.. Lickety split when they found out that she was still gonna Defend Obama..

  • Hillbilly

    Sicilian Papa – I saw an NSA expert…I am not one

    ——————————

    Glad you clarified that. ;)

    C’ya

  • Cheryl Lynn

    Does anyone else think Chris Hayes is Rachel Maddow’s younger prettier sister?

  • usa8888

    This just in: Stock Market hits new highs…AGAIN….Corp porfits at all time highs….in sspite of GOP obstruction in HOuse……..

  • Sicilian Papa

    USA8888

    Chimes in with the exact same critique everyday.

    Fox is doing very well. They are gaining although they just held steady in today’s ratings. Fox is a huge success story for the entire 15 years they have been on the air.

    They are beating the competition badly in every demo. The numbers are a little smaller today but they are rocking!
