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
