Skip to comments.Fareed Zakaria: Fox Viewers Don't Watch CNN - Our Competition is NPR and NYT
Posted on 07/02/2011 7:01:29 PM PDT by DGHoodini
CNN's Fareed Zakaria made a bit of a Kinsley gaffe Friday.
On NPR's "Morning Edition," Zakaria said, "The people who watch Fox are not going to watch CNN...Our competitors should properly be The New York Times, the BBC, NPR"

Hey Zakaria you overblown egotistical liberal brainwashed twit...Don't look now, but you just admitted you are a LOSER!
BWAhahahahahahahahaha! Go back to cleaning up the dead.
The only time I watch CNN is when there’s breaking foreign coverage and BBC isn’t on. Fox has terrible (nonexistent) foreign coverage. BBC is always the most comprehensive when it comes to foreign coverage, but unfortunately it’s not available in anything like regular realtime, which leaves CNN when there’s a story abroad. Both are hopelessly left, especially the BBC, but you just have to ignore it.
And Al Jazerra.
Oh and Oh yeah, Liar boy....I *dpo* watch CNN when there are overseas conglicys, because CNN usually has people there first and with the largest amount of coverage, as one watyches out for their LibDweeb political slanting seeping into their coverage, of course.
But do ahead. Become another Fart America just like PMSDNC...See how that works out for ya! >;oD
He is 100% correct. CNN can’t compete with Fox and hasn’t for some time. They are a propaganda outlet all the time as are NPRNYTBBC - thus they are competing against each other. Fox at least is a lot closer to actual news reporting and far more honest than CNN ever has been so again, not directly competing.
- Our competitors should properly be The New York Times, the BBC, NPR”
The New York Times is print and NPR is radio.
My sister and her hubby rarely visit my parents at their home these days due to Fox News on their TV, 24/7. They are CNN/NPR snobs.
I watch him every Sunday, despite his mile long trail of bullshit.
Sneer at my bad typing all you want DemoGenerate. But you can’t deny the truth. (HA hah!) ...Well, actually, being a Lib, you’re iin a constant state of denial....(smirk)
He’s correct. I would not watch CNN... or listen to NPR or read the NYT.
I’m DAMNED F***ING PROUD to say I don’t watch CNN except by accident, you Muzzie creep. And I don’t watch Fox much more than I do CNN but I could sit through maybe a galf-hour of it if I had to. No way I could sit through CNN’s Obama-loving bilge.
O’m guessing they don’t visit *you* all that much either. :o)
Best they only visit other members of their Jim Jones Lib Cults anyways...
Sorry, I just spilled some wine on my keyboard.
I’d like to hear him explain how he/CNN are CNN’s competition, when they are two of their main “news” sources?
It’s prety clear most domestic coberage CNN airs, comes from the pages of the NYTs and the radio pervo-pushing-bilge of NPR.
My mistake! I thought you were addressing me, not Zakaria.
I apologize and retract my derision towards you.
All he did was tell the truth. CNN really doesn’t compete for the viewers who watch FNC.
CNN’s main competition is airport concourse floor polishers.
Still, it seems CNN has made some efforts to attract conservative viewers, like bringing Erick Erickson and Dana Loesch (is there a “rule” for her?) aboard as pundits.
watch Skynews for overseas stuff pretty good.
My brother and her GF are the same. They;’re both effing libtards and they can’t stand Fox. Heck, I can’t stand Fox because they are liberal.
They must spend a lot of time in the TSA lines at Airports. CNN counts those trapped in this Government Boodoggle as viewers.
Zakaria give me the creeps, the idea that he is giving
input to this administration freaks me out.
The campaign will be worse than you can imagine. This administration is SDS.
Good points. Fox needs to upgrade its foreign coverage.
CNN has some good stories despite its leftist bias.
BBC also has good worldwide coverage despite being anti-American and anti-semitic.
I watch Fox and CNN (gave up on MSNBC when I ran out of barf bags - too expensive to keep buying them).
Zakaria, as usual, is full of shit.
Yes, we should start demanding Fox News in airports. My gym has several TVs in front of the treadmills, only one for Fox.....waaaaay in the corner. Oh well it’s a start.
I haven’t watched CNN at all, not at all, since the Lebanon War when their coverage was so hysterically anti-Israel that I couldn’t stomach it or them anymore.
Frankly, though, I don’t watch TV news much anymore at all, I get most of my news from the net. I only watched Fox for Beck and with him gone, I don’t watch them at all now.
so, basically, their competition is other liberal, elitist echo chambers...
You have competition?
You don’t have competition.
You are totally dominated.
The guys selling commercials for CNN must have loved to hear this. The stockholders also.
