As much as I liked Neil Cavuto, John Gibson and most especially Brit Hume, 3 hours daily didn't justify my cable bill. I dropped it.
We've almost killed CNN with our remotes. FOX is not immune.
Here is the Queen of Fox News in all her radiant glory.
IMO, the whole interview format is screwed. Interview each side separately so that they have to respond to the question, not to the opponent's response to the previous question. And if the interviewee strays into his talking points, kill his mike.
Committing liberal suicide. I don't watch as much as I used to, but there's a few shows I still tune into. Hannity, Sheppo, Cavuto.
FOX has gotten very sophomoric, very childish, very self-celebrity-conscious, very self-promoting, and very embarrassing.
The other News network shows are equally as bad.
Too bad FOX won't be a pioneer and dump all the above and just give the news, without the self-hype.
...and they can skip the COURT cases, as well.
I wondered what the hello was going on.
Even Oreilly has changed and seems to be soft balling his left wing guest.
You are right as rain about Foxnews getting ready to take a bath in ratings.
If I wanted to watch democrat media I would tune in any station except Foxnews. Now it seems there is no selection at all.
You have BBC Baghdad Broadcasting co.
and the little BBC (aka CNN, MSNBC, etc)
Fox News filled the media vacuum created when CNN joined forces with Al-Jazeera.
They did the same for Republicans before the dem convention..I don't watch all those interviews..and believe me the others do it....I have watched enough of all the cable news to know Fox does best..even though they balance both lib and conservative views.
Glad someone else noticed it. Can't even have a REPUBLICAN convention without the rats and or rinos holding all the mics.
CNN = Communists News Network!!!!
MSNBC = Matthews Sucks Nothing But Communists!!!!
CNBC = Communists, Nothing But Communists!!!!
NBC = Nothing But Communists!!!!
CBS = Communists Bull Sh*t!!!!
ABC = ALL Bullsh*t Communists!!!!
BBC = Bill's Bullsh*t Communists!!!!
TBS = TASS Bull Sh*t!!!!
PBS = Pravda Bull Sh*t!!!!
C-SPAN1 = Communists-Socialists Aided Network #1
C-SPAN2 = Communists-Socialists Aided Network #2
Al Jazeera = Global Terrorists Media Outlet Network
Fairweather whichever way the wind blows(like kerry, o'reilly) FOX sometimes rocks!!!!(See now, All of You, O'Reilly has been giving lessons to kerry in how to stick his finger in the wind before they do or say anything, all along.)
The Mighty Maja Rushie, Rush Limbaugh RULES the Airwaves!!!!
Some real creeps who are behind kerry are listed below
(DSA is a major financial supporter of C-SPAN and alludes to it on their website. They both(including CPUSA are likely financial supporters of the major media outlets.)
DSA's "Progressive Caucus" Links below:
They are the Enemy Within!!!!
They should use more Tony Snow...
He's the smartest man in television news.
Don't watch too much either. Seems Fox might have caved a little.
And one of these days she'll get to the bottom of this Chandra Levy story too. What you claim shes not still covering it. All her stories look the same to me.
I was particularly disappointed in BRIT HUME this morning, who usually slaps down the hyperactive and hysterical Juan Williams.
Greta happened, that's what, and the people who used to watch FOX news found themselves looking at lawyers half the time, and turned the channel.
Whorealdo? Greta's tabloid law hour? That freak on Saturday mornings? O'Reilly's boundless ego?
Fox is doing a fine job. Where would the Swift Vets be without Fox putting them on the air before the networks were forced to do it? I think you are way off base.
Great idea!!! I have noticed this 'drift' as well and CNN-lite is a good name for what they are becoming. I think it started with O'Reilly but now I am having difficulty with a lot of the shows.
How about a simple 'text block' of all the above addresses so we can just do the old copy to the bcc area of our email software and let them all know what we feel? Just copy the below block and let them all know ... be nice, give your 'name and town' and have at it!

We'll have to let'em know we've made them #1 and if they don't keep to the right agenda....they'll be toast like the others. Hell I don't think they should even consider this fair and balance way of doing things...we've got pBS, cBS, nBC, aBC, commie news network, cnBC, msnBC...they squarely give the small minority of commies they're fill of the elite globlist propaganda....geeeezzzzz!!!
I think they know that Kerry is toast. They are just trying to keep the ratings up by making it appear the election is close.
At this point, I don't think the ratings show any damage. Drudge posts the cable ratings, and O"reilly is still doing fine, even after trashing the Swift Boat veterans, and people who believe them.
I caught the bit with Maureen Dowd this morning. Later she was on Chris Matthews. That woman is warped in the head. I find her voice to be just about intolerable. I do not why they chose to feature her in the fashion that they did. It was not well advised.
I have read very few of her columns because I won't sign up for the NY Times but of what I have read from her and of her she completely represents the very worst of the liberal media. The woman makes absolutely no sense to me ever.
I do not watch television as much as I used to but for a long while I have been trying to keep abreast of the Britt and Juan dialogues. I could swear that one of these days Britt is going to get up and simply wring Juan's neck. Now that would be entertainment.
Don't forget Rita Cosby's breathless coverage of all the slimy trials. I channel surf if I even see her.

Thank goodness for Brit Hume!!! He keeps that moron Juan Williams in line. Considering Fox is owned by a big Democratic contributor, Brit is risking his job.
As soon as baseball season is over I'm right there with ya!
It's really too bad. It was such a breath of fresh air when I found it. Now it's becoming a copy of the Alphabet networks and CNN...
I rarely watch TV any more, except for the Food Channel, History Channel, Discovery. We'll all live longer if we avoid the news networks and esp. during a political campaign of this nature. Fox is maybe trying to absord some of CNN's lost audience?
Fox? You mean the Juan Williams Show?
I'VE BEEN SAYING IT FOR AWHILE NOW. EVER SINCE THE CEO OF THE PARENT COMPANY ENDORSED KERRY, THEY'VE MOVED TO THE LEFT. THEY'VE ALSO HIRED NEWS WRITERS FROM NBC. THEIR RATINGS WILL PROBABLY START TO DROP.
Fox is still better than CNN in terms of balanced news coverage, but Fox simply isn't as good at covering breaking news stories. And all the Scott Peterson, Marc Levy, blah blah blah makes Fox usually a tabloid. And what about that Fox executive endorsing Kerry?
That's all they'll understand.
Hannity has retained his integrity.
I was not watching Fox today, but I did Watch the CNN special on President Bush's presidency, and I thought it rocked. I may be bias, but CNN made President George W. Bush look GREAT! big surprise.
Personally, my only recent complaint with Fox is Chris Wallace. I would say he was hired and they have taken any turn they may have taken because their top ratings guy is that idiot O'Reilly. If more of us turned him off and watched Humme, the Beltway Boys, their news hours, Hannity and Colmes etc, then they might get the hint.
I don't mind Gretta doing crime stories particularly when there is not much news. I don't care much for their morning gang and I hate wasting time with the audiences in some of those shows before Smith, Gibson, Cavuto come on.
I try to go the workout every night during O'Reilly. Anyone who thinks it a smear we care about where the deed says his daddy's house was located is way out of touch.
But do not forget the bottom line. The existence of FNC acts as an anchor not letting CNN/MSNBC etal move too far to the extreme left just as Fox is fighting for the "center-left" with them.
It's not balanced anymore. It's moved to the left.
As long as they report BOTH sides I could care less. Confidence prevails!
Tony Snow, of all people, late last week said if Bush doesn't get a big bounce out of this convention, he's in big trouble.
Kerry gets elected we are in bug trouble. I would expect another major attack on our country with Kerry in office. I am sure he will blame it on bush when it happens too.
FoxNews CEO supports John Kerry and MOST OF US who know that they have gone Liberal have dumped them, so should you. We are only putting money in Kerry's campaign by watching Fox now, they have been bought and paid for by Democrat promises. I am praying for a christian tv channel to take their place with actual FAIR AND BALANCED reporting, FoxNews stinks now.
Yeah, Joe's MSNBC program did a good job on the Swift Vets, but that is the only one. Moreover, Joe's program is 100% opposed by that idiot Chris Matthews who has been railing against the Vets. Plus the other MSNBC programs come out against the Vets.
Secondly, MSNBC gets 0.2 ratings on average, and Joe's program gets 0.4 ratings. Fox typically gets 1.0 on average, and their primetime gets 1-2.0 ratings. So Fox gets the message of the Vets out, while very few watches MSNBC.
Third, Fox shows all these Laci stories to widen their audience. Not everyone is interested in politics. Hopefully, these viewers will be exposed to the Swifties along the way.
Fourth, Murdoch who runs Newscorp is pro-Bush, and so is Ailes who runs Fox News. Who cares if one or two guys at Newscorp is for Kerry? Fox having people from both sides gets them interviews with the Democraps, and that also helps with the ratings.
Lastly, I disagree with you that Fox isn't good at breaking news. Because they are close with the Bushies and Republicans, Fox breaks a lot more stories with their connections than the other news networks. Fox also had that exclusive with Karl Rove which no one else got.
I think you are complaining about nothing. What you want is a Rush-TV, which isn't Fox. Fox is right of center, but needs to cater to Democrats and liberals as well.
At 1:55 p.m. C.D.T., Kerry leads 57 to 41% over Dubya. Yeah, right, MSNBC, that's why you have zero audience. Kerry will be lucky to still be on the ballot in mid-September, and the maroons that vote your "polls" can't see the forest for the thighs; they're hugh!!!
Just sent and e-mail. I to have noticed they are pandering to much to the Left. They better watch out or they are going to lose their core base of viewers.
