MSNBC doesn’t care. GE wants to make a fortune in the Carbon Credits business. They will run the network to support the policies that will get them vast money.
The proof is in the puddin’ Fair and Balanced ,,,, beats the state run news lackeys every time . But boy does barama hate profits though , look out Fairness Doctrine . He already has Rat on a friend covered ,,, I turned myself in ,,, it was the honorable thing to do .
I’d like to see the CNN ratings w/o the airports factored in.
lol More people watch whatshisface at 11PM than watch Olberwoman(I dislike them both) at 8PM.
Those numbers are just amazing!
Beck’s total viewers at 5PM are almost as much as all of the competing networks COMBINED at 8PM!
Why does Chrissy bother to get out of bed in the morning ?
A couple of points...
Yeah they are pounding them, period, but especially are they in the 34-64 demo.
This is America’s bedrock.
Add in a goodly number of over-64 (not shown) and you have the town meeting demo that drives the Dems to further insanity.
Finally, it’s worse than at first blush for the Libs because Nancy Grace is an apolitical crime/soap opera show.
Take her out of the mix and compare politically-oriented shows, apples to apples, and the disparity is stunning.
By far the most important hour on cable news. We need to boost those ratings. I want Beck #1. His destruction of the DNC's "mob" arguments to start today's show with withering ridicule were total brilliance, worthy of Mencken. I'll post video when avail.
Time to move Glenn Beck to 7 pm EST time slot. He’ll destroy everyone...even Bill O AND Hannity.
9 PM P2+ (25-54) (35-64) Larry King Live1,163,000 viewers (313,000) (521,000)
HOLY COW. The repeat of O'Reilly beats CNN's top-rated prime time program. Now that is dominance.
I wonder what Beck's ratings would be if he wasn't in drive-time when few people are watching TV.
Beck is a very effective communicator and the left knows it. I expect he will get the Media Matters treatment worse than Rush.
Yes and they will also be providing us with the florescent light blub - you know the one that gives you headaches, and you leave on longer running up the power bill, the one you need to call a hazmat team if you break it. That GE.
Carbon Credits are a sidelne - the money they paid congress to get the incidescent blubs banned will be repaid in spades with their exclusive manufacture of the blubs they’ve been unable to sell since GE first made them back in the 1950s.
The chief executives of Fox have squashed any discussion of Obama’s eligibility.
Not even one Fox commentator has come out in favor of Obama showing “best evidence” for his eligibility. They have either ignored it, disagreed, or, in the case of Ann Coulter and OReilly, insulted those who are requesting “best evidence” for Obama’s eligibility.
In regard to Obama’s eligibility, I am beginning to think that a top Fox executive woke up one morning and found a horse's head in his bed.
Huh????? He is #1 at that timeslot
"GE, We bring evil to life"
But they either seem not to notice, or it doesn't register.
Of course, they haven't a clue why they can't seem to compete.
