    Shut down suddenly on Thursday.

    It would be nice if TV by the numbers would tell us why they have discontinued having this blog on regular page. if they told us that there was too much Political BS with all the cut and paste people could have toned it done. I typically didn’t read the very long cut & paste postings. I also did not apreciated the name calling but there where quite a bit of reasonable correspondence.

    CNNs numbers were really pathetic Tuesday night. MSNBC numbers were in line with where they’ve been in recent weeks. The regular MSNBC folks seem to be laying low. They got what they voted for.

  • Mt Rick

    hopefully Sara Bibel reinstates the blog section otherwise there would be no reason to visit the site.

    I was a regular poster under another name and loved all the friends I made. I never swore or insulted people. The board closed down. Now I see it is up. On my other computer that this website knows me under with my other name that you all know me as, it won’t let me comment. It has me locked out. So some people can comment and some can’t.

    I understand locking out people who were rude and nasty. I don’t understand locking out people that enjoy decent conversation with decent people.

  • Dont Understand

    Should it all close down for good, I just want to say to those that I’ve come to know here for a short while, it was a pleasure. I learned a lot from you all.

    @lbsles

    Yep, I will check from time to time, I also check on the numbers for falling skies, Arrow, sports events etc. So Its not just the cable news section I check, although I only comment a few on the others. So I’ll still be on the site a lot.

    Outside of the news, I think a lot of the shows reflect the mood of the nation on the type of shows that do well and the ones that flop. When I worked in broadcasting especially as a MCO and later production and then the news division I checked this site out a lot.

    This site is top notch and very professional and masterfully done.

    @Dont Understand

    I must have seen you on here, and sorry we can’t back and forth, and I as well will miss the chatting.

    good Morning Coffee Steve

    While I agree that the name calling can be a little childish and personal I never really found it to be over the top. Though I found the “old” comments to be small and petty most of us here laugh about and are proud of having made it to our various ages. I think attacking someones race, sexuality, gender….would be over the top.

    I like the contentious debate over cable ratings and politics. They are kind of linked to news ratings. What is covered, how it is covered and the news of the day are all discussed here. We also engage in personal conversations and we have some fun here.

    The owners of the site are obviously not happy with the direction the conversation has taken. Okay, your the boss, set some guidelines and if people don’t follow them, ban them. We will do our part and warn people who visit that personal insults will not be tolerated.

  • Sicilian Papa

    This just in: It looks like a bad rain storm today in Conn. I am just warning all of you, I don’t have much to do today which leads to a lot of mindless posting!

    I kind of miss USA 4 8′s! He was like watching the same bad movie over and over again. Just kidding!

  • Sicilian Papa

    They should have named that new show “Stromboli with pepperoni and hot sausage.” They couldn’t do any worse in the ratings.

  • Coffee Steve

    Morning Mike and Mickey O

    Wonder how many pages will be filled before this one is shut down LOL

    I miss the discussions too. :-(

    Tell you what guys, I am posting one bit of troubling news I am seeing on my reporters text feeds, soon, a good number of members of congress are about to announce retirement. Why? They don’t want to have to take the Obamcare premiums hikes they will get. They passed a law that said they are NOT exempt if you remember and they want to leave so they can buy their own plan.

    This is not hype, by the end of the year, we may have a mass exodus from Congress on both sides. Even Drudge has a story on it this morning.

    I saw the same thing many on Capitol Hill fear it could lead to a brain drain just as Congress tackles a slew of weighty issues. This could be a good thing but they better not change the law to waive the exchanges for them they should be in the same boat as the average joe.

  • Coffee Steve

    @mickeyO

    Fully agree Mickey. Now they are finding out about the law too in the States, people can get covered, but the plans out there that many middle and lower income levels comes with a $5000.00 deductible, bet they did not know that did they, you have to get the $400 or higher a month plans to get a $2000.00 deductible.

    And the plans co-pay for meds starts at $25.00 but on many ordinary meds there will be NO co-pay.

    Welcome to reality everyone.

    @coffee Steve- This is not hype, by the end of the year, we may have a mass exodus from Congress on both sides. Even Drudge has a story on it this morning.

    Best thing that could happen to this country.

    Your parents would be so proud of you, but many of us figured as much, hired trolls can’t help it, they are sick individuals. But you won’t and haven’t changed a thing, because as I always say, The problem with truth is it never lies. And in the end, right will always win.

    @Jim S

    Out of all this I hope as well we get many new members on both sides, an I hope these scandals that are starting to take its toll on his numbers and the Democrats chances in the fall of 2014. I just hope the country can hold together for another year

  • mikey0

    @Coffee Steve I hope we can survive a year but thing are getting crazy by the day. Feds say 10 year old can’t get an adult lung, but a 10 year old can buy the morning after pill without doctor’s or parnets permission. Good news thou 10 year old girl got a lung thanks to a judge, but not for HSS. I am Afaird this may be things to come with Obama care.
