    Damn... You just don't stop, do you?
    Faux always cheers on television ratings when they lose out on everything else. CNN and MSNBC do better on unique web hits, YouTube requests and even on iPhone application downloads. All this tells us is that people who follow the other networks are willing to get their news from more modern sources while the folks that follow Faux are still planning their entire day around the boob tube. Or a flat screen if they actually joined us in the 21st Century.

    But I guess any victory is better than none, isn't it? :rolleyes:

    Further proof that America is going to hell in a handbasket?

    Bread and circuses. FN being the modern equivalent of the "circus" part.

    LOL.

    Then perhaps CNN and MSNBC should pack it up and just become internet news sites! Because they've been summarily beaten in the arena they are actually IN...which would be...Cable Television News.

    Fox News is a single gathering place for conservatives (i.e. people who believe that Obama is not a citizen, and believe that Darwin was wrong, and believe that democracy should be promoted worldwide through wars) to congregate.


    Conservatives come to this single place.


    Liberals go to CNN, MSNBC, ABC Evenig News, CBS Evening News, NBC Evening News --- if conservatives are correct, it's ALL left-wing mainstream media.

    Liberals are spread out all over the tv landscape. Conservatives go to Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck to get "informed". So of course the Fox News numbers are bloated because so much dead weight is concentrated in one place.

    That's right, Trinity...
    Embrace 70+ year old technology. :rolleyes:

    Besides, if you seen the number of unique hits CNN makes in one month, it tops all of the viewership Faux gets in half a year. You know, of we really had to inject a value to the numeral stats.

    Um, nothing FOX does qualifies as news.

    And those statistics are massaged.
    Break them down by demographic.
    MSNBC is far and away preferred by folks UNDER the age of incipient senility.

    Advertisers will gladly trade you ALL the viewers over 50 for all the viewers between 18 and 35.


    And, just out of curiosity- how much does Fox news pay you for this gig of salting propaganda on internet forums?

    DO you get paid by the post? Or a salary?

    This is a good thing as it indicates their marginalization. One single source for propaganda, disinformation and hate. One swift and decisive Air Force strike could take them out. Trinity would have to get a new job.

    cnn.com has four times the users as foxnews.com. Source.

    CNN is lucky to have the 30-something spenders demographic, rather than the 50-somthing savers. Their income must be must be much higher than Fox News'.

    Here's the Fox News Hero in action:
    YouTube - Bill O'Reilly freaks out on intern

    I never knew there were so many touchy liberals on here. Fox News is an oasis of sanity in a crazy world. Don't you all wonder how or why FN has become so popular in such a short time? They're reporting things RIGHT. Thanks for the post, Trinity!

    Wow, Fox is at the average for across the Nation. And Bill O'Reilly is pretty high up there....hmmm and O'Reilly is #1 in the Nation!

    Since this was 2007...before the election I wonder what a survey today would show. Especially since Fox is killing CNN & MSNBC.

    LOL.

    Then perhaps CNN and MSNBC should pack it up and just become internet news sites! Because they've been summarily beaten in the arena they are actually IN...which would be...Cable Television News.

    Unfortunately, Fox News loses in the one category that actually counts: TRUTH

    Nah. Not touchy. Just smarter.

    For example, an intelligent person would realize that this is bullshit and not news.

    Let's see... 15 divided by 23= 65.2%. That's good solid D. Way to go Fox News viewers!!

    oops! wait a minute.... That's 35% that earned the D. The other 65% musta been D- or F... :yikes:

    aw fuck it... I gotta go claim the remote before the old lady puts on Big Brother. There's a stock car race on at Darlington and I'll be damn if that women is gonna stop me from seeing it.

    half truths and innuendo= oh i don't know perhaps any news show on Fox.. Just wait until you see what Rupert does with the Wall Street Journal now that he owns it. It'll be a barrel of laughs.
