It has not been a very promising year for cable news channels. Between January and March, viewership has dropped dramatically on the Fox News Channel, CNN and MSNBC.

Audiences are down by a third at Fox, while CNN and MSNBC both have lost about half of their audiences, according to Nielsen ratings released yesterday.

Fox now has too many audio/visual effects, and Chris Wallace. And too tabloidal.

CNN? Anti-American.

MSNBC? Stopped on them earlier. Norville was breathless as she pimped Air America/Al Franken. Another perky chearleader.

I can put up with anything on Fox except for their obsession with sensational court cases, the entertainment world and missing persons. CNN and MSNBC are equally obsessed. I do believe that any of the news channels would interrupt live coverage of The Second Coming to cut away to Michael Jackson.

Fox News is now "reaping the benefits, financial and otherwise, of counterprogramming to the obvious bias of CNN," "

I like the sound of that. It shows that CNN's liberal bias is costing them big bucks.

Add that to all the money that the liberals are wasting on "Air America" and the money Soros wants to waste against Bush and you can see that this bunch of losers are now going to lose through their wallets. Eventually they'll catch on, but liberals never spot the failures in what they do until it's way too late to fix it.

I dropped the Fox morning show yesterday. I was so disgusted with both Steve Ducie and Greg Kelly that I turned it off, emailed them to let them know the show had joined the weekend version, and turned my radio back on to WLS in the morning.
