Fareed Zakaria: Fox Viewers Don't Watch CNN - Our Competition is NPR and NYT
Newsbusters ^ | July 02, 2011 | Noel Sheppard

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"

Isn't it remarkable, how the "great and wiser than Presidents" Zakaria, can so affably cede 60+% of the total of all US American news viewership, to FNC, and declare a Liberal radio and newspaper organisations as BNNs "real" competitors?

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.

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.

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.

CNN? New York Times? NPR? BBC? How interesting that every one of these were mentioned at the end of this unforgettable video. Tell us again, Fareed, how well you're informing the people???

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.

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.

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.

Agree. I also used to watch some of CNN's good old shows, like Crossfire (when they had Pat Buchanan or Robert Novak as the conservative), Evans & Novak, and Capitol Gang (always stacked 3 liberals to 2 conservatives, but the conservatives were usually fighters who could hold their own, like Buchanan, Novak, Kate O'Beirne, or John O'Sullivan). In their folly, of course, CNN got rid of these good shows, having acquired a weird milquetoast obsession with being bland, noncontroversial, and avoiding conflict.

They must spend a lot of time in the TSA lines at Airports. CNN counts those trapped in this Government Boodoggle as viewers.

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.

The guys selling commercials for CNN must have loved to hear this. The stockholders also.
