Looking for a fitting historical analogy to describe the current "cable wars?" Try the firebombing of Dresden.
Fox News has been dominating its competitors now for some time, but the latest round of Abritron ratings shows FNC absolutely scorching rivals CNN and MSNBC:
(Chart at link)
As you can see, every show in the top ten is from Fox News, as are 13 out of the top 15. In fact, only one of Fox News' fourteen programs is ranked below #15 in the ratings. That show is Red Eye, which airs from 3-4am - and it still pulls in more viewers than MSNBC's Morning Joe.
The personal battle between Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olbermann is no contest. Even O'Reilly's repeat show at 11pm pulls in 52% more viewers than Olberman's prime time show.(continued)

David Brooks wouldn’t be impressed.

This is something I don’t get. Fox’s ratings have been the highest for a long time, even during the campaign. More conservative viewers than liberal in all of the news channels.
So how come zero won?
VOTE, CONSERVATIVES, VOTE !!!!
“So how come zero won?”
Two words: “John McCain”
Thanks to some state primaries that allow anyone to vote Republican, we had John McCain as a nominee. Fox News is not the GOP, no matter what Rachel Mannow tells you.
Still doesn’t make sense if you look at the numbers.
All this tells me is that too many conservatives did not vote, and proportionatley more liberals did (with acorns help of course).
Amazing what honest coverage and keeping commentary truly separate from news will do for a network.
Statement by the FCC diversity Czar in 3.....2....1.....
Yeah - Redeye beats Morning Joe.
That’s GOTTA hurt.
Actually, let me word it this way:
Redeye gives Morning Joe a black eye.
I wonder what would happen if they put a Beck repeat in the O’Reilly repeat slot?
You didn't buy his BS not did you buy the media's. You didn't and neither did I.
AND IT HADD NOTHING TO DO WITH McCAIN
BS is BS as is your blaming McCain for the actions of others
The numbers are such:
About 5 million people get their news from Fox News Channel.
About 40 million people get their news from ABCNBCCBSCNNMSNBCPBS.
They control the primary and secondary schools, the news media, the entertainment media and a surprisingly large number of churches.
They should be beating us by 30 points in every election. The only reason they don't is because the truth is on our side.
You people amaze me.
You are so toatlly in bed with the leftist thinking that you put the blame on everything else than the true cause.
The true cause is that half of the population was brainwashed into liking zero and maybe, just maybe Sarah might have been the only person to stop them
Blame your neighbors, the ones with their hands out. They were the ones who feel for it. Blame the ones who voted
While I am on a roll.....only the left balme everyone but themselves.
THIS IS AMERICA!!!! GOT IT!!!!!! The people voted for what they thought was GOD!!!! Idiots, then and idiots now.
Brain washing, they bought it hook line and sinker. You blame McCain, I blame the mindless moonbats, because they were the ones who voted
Like hell it didn't. McCain was a train wreck. He was born to lose.
>> I wonder what would happen if they put a Beck repeat in the OReilly repeat slot? <<
They need to do this!
I hate waiting till midnight to see Beck.
Very understandable. McCain was no conservative. And certainly GWB was not one either. And I held my nose and voted for both over time. Never again.
“Blame the ones who voted”?? I held my nose and voted for McCain. Blame the jerks who didn’t vote.
Don’t be amazed. I blame everyone. Including the Soros sock-puppet from Arizona.
yeah, and who put him as our candidate WHO???
We did,see the fault where it lies and do something about it. If he was the best we could come up with then it is our fault, by your own words
There is enough fault to go all round, but to blame one person, God forebid. It is our countrym we are not in Venezuela yet are we
Semi-relevant: Yet Princess Cruise Lines refuses to add Fox News to its in-cabin closed-circuit TV lineup. CNN is the only option. We were on a 14-day cruise during the time Cheney had the shooting accident. Imagine having CNN as the only news station. Torture!
Independents in New Hampshire, Democrats in South Carolina, illegal crossover voters in Florida. And Mike Huckabee's idiots in West Virginia (who switched and voted for McQueeg in the runoff).
While you weren't paying attention, McCain was working with Goerge Soros and Theresa Heinz Kerry's money at the Reform Institute to turn our primaries into a free-for-all. John McCain's train wreck candidacy was the payoff.
You got a mouse in your pocket? Who's this "we"? I didn't even contemplate casting a vote for that jerkweed in the primary.
I’m just surprised anybody watches Larry King. I’m also surprised Olbermann beats Red Eye. If Fox would put Red Eye on a couple of hours earlier, they’d jump up several slots.
where were you, where were any of us who groaned “oh No” when his name came up. Who of us tried to take it off, who of us tried there best to get a better, stronger, more conservative name on the ballot? Who indeed.
It is always the left that makes a mountain out of the smallest stone. I would like to think that those on this forum have their eyes open enough to see the big picture.
As it turned out, that election was lost the moment zeros name came up; simply because “we” thought it could never happen. WE have to get out of this “blame” everyone else mentality....and no one has ever been able to convince me how not voting for one side is not a vote for the other.
Probably for the same reason Al Franken won. ACORN!
A huge majority of dead people vote Democrat.
“While you weren’t paying attention, McCain was working with Goerge Soros and Theresa Heinz Kerry’s money at the Reform Institute to turn our primaries into a free-for-all. John McCain’s train wreck candidacy was the payoff.”
Thank you, I surely wasn’t paying attention. Neither were a lot of people
>> Imagine having CNN as the only news station. Torture! <<
If you can’t take that mild torture, then be sure you never vacation in Europe.
That’s because most of the hotels over there carry only CNN INTERNATIONAL, which is so much worse that it makes the “domestic” version of CNN seem almost conservative.
Good thing we were all having such a great time that there were precious few minutes to sit around watching the tube.
