Bwaaaaahahahahahaha

>>>In all of cable, not just cable news, Fox News was the most-watched channel throughout all of last week. During the Boston bombings and subsequent manhunt, the new "Most Trusted Name In News" averaged 2.874 million viewers during primetime, and 1.77 million in total day.

CNN came in a distant third with 1.985 million and 1.329 million respectively.

Because no one turns to left-wing talk radio when major news is breaking, MSNBC humiliated itself with a 19th place showing. Fewer than a million viewers tuned in in primetime, and fewer than 600,000 in total day.

This is not a small deal, either. Once upon a time CNN was America's news outlet when major news broke. Even as Fox has overtaken CNN in recent years, that dynamic would flip during major news events. Obviously, that is no longer the case.

CNN certainly didn't help their situation throughout last week as the network became a laughingstock over flubs both big and small.

MSNBC, obviously, is paying for a choice they made long ago to get out of the news business. Today the network is nothing more than left-wing talk radio with video and smug hosts, many of whom are starting to all look alike.<<<

Obviously, liberal attacks on FOX aren't succeeding. Maybe there should be a competing "conservative" news channel to give an easier target?

The largest radio station in Maryland is the conservative-leaning WBAL, but that's probably for the same reasons FOX is #1.

Passer: "Very few doubt that Fox is the King of division."

Then I assume that means you're unaware of the cable network MSNBC.

Where looney lefties turn to get their hyperleft-skewed news...

They must be also counting all of the tumble weeds.

Everyone who has passed a fifth grade arithmetic class knows that the LCD is important and has its place. Very few doubt that Fox is the King of division.

When you're right, you're right and you don't have to stand on a soap box and beat your chest. The silent majority speaks.

That said, I don't watch FNC.

Read some of the comments at the end of this article. Their cons make our cons actually look smart. Keep in mind Libs have many choices to watch while Cons have only FOX so naturally FOX will have higher numbers. Also the broadcast news (CBS, NBC, ABC) blow away any cable news including FOX.

Wanna bet that sluggo will reappear with a new alias in order to take a shot at you for posting something positive about Fox News? In the past he was completely unable to resist attacking any post or poster that remarked upon Fox News' success.
