    Let me help you by showing you what a link is:

    Cable News Ratings for Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

    CNN has almost as many viewers as FOX. Toss in MSNBC with CNN and FOX gets blown away.

    And he is a scum bag.
    The main reason fox news gets more viewers is that cable providers MUST put fox and only fox news in their basic (trailer park) cable package.
    If they want fox entertainment, they must play by the murdock rules.
    The 'ratings' have nothing to do with content and everything to do with availability.

    Profit is the capitalistic principle that guides private businesses, media outlets included.

    If an ideological spin no longer promises to attract fans amidst significant demographic change, they'll stop pandering to that ilk, change direction, and follow the money.

    A review of whom Fox has been dumping and whom they have been acquiring is a clear indication of Rupert's business acumen and prescience.

    Do you wish to discuss carriage requirements of Turner?

    I never get tired of reading what passes for information and fact in the right wing world.
    I always wonder just how different that made up world is from the real one.
    Just what else has the party changed and somehow gotten people to swallow?

    Math has an innate liberal bias....don't trust it. Go to Dean Chambers "Unskewed Ratings" to see how Fox is beating everybody, even the broadcast channels.

    "Reagan cut spending, cut the size of Government, got tough with Iran, never signed meaningless scraps of paper treaties with the Rooskies, appointed pro-life Justices, and was "tricked' by the Dems into giving amnesty to illegals (see below)". And they believe it all.

    The loony left-wing nuts have ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, PBS, NYT, LAT, Time, Newsweek and Hollywood, and they still aren't happy.

    Oh, by the way, Fox News isn't conservative.

    what you are trying to do is accuse FOX of some type of unsavory practices which are common among all content owners, not just FOX.

    Do you wish to discuss Discovery, Turner, Viacom, ESPN/Disney/ABC etc? Or, do you wish to continue to falsely portray it like it's just FOX which does this?

    I know!, It's amazing, they also think that deregulating the banks was Clinton's fault and the housing crash was in the CRA!
    Reality does have a liberal slant!

    I bet I get more entertainment from the ramblings of liberals who probably could not score 750 on a SAT test but have a degree in 17th century Belgian lesbian studies and like to pretend they know something worthwhile

    I'm not accusing fox of anything, I'm saying it outright.
    Go check for yourself.
    Find a cable provider that has fox entertainment in their line up and doesn't have fox news and only fox news in their basic (trailer park) package.
    Then get back to me.

    LOL!
    It just gets better and better.

    1) Notice you just skipped addressing the rest of my response, but hey, I understand.
    2) What a crock. Where do you people get this crap? I mean, exclusively "to old"? Who is "to old" in your 'oh so normal' world?

    You are correct. He's a fascist in the mold of Wilson and FDR.

    again you misrepresent the truth.

    ESPN requires that they be carried in the most basic package

    CNN has the same carriage requirements for the USA

    What is even worse are the crap channels which you must also take in order to get Turner, ESPN and Discovery.

    I do not understand why you keep using the label "trailer park" .

    In case you aren't getting it, I'm quite familiar with negotiating for content; now why might that be??????????????

    Just because you refuse to read the information provided to you doesn't make sec wrong. It makes you ignorant.

    At the end of the day, the Fox News numbers blow away CNN and MSNBC.

    Fox News is bias when you get to the Hannity and Fox and Friends Shows, but pretty much the rest are balanced. The last thing a Liberal wants is a Fair and Balanced news source.

    Your intellectual dishonesty is mind-blowing. You picked one day out of the year, which happened to coincide with the State of the Union in an effort to show that CNN and MSNBC were Fox's equals, then cherry picked the results to coincide to a special two-hour timeslot. Look at the top rating. Total Day. Even with special reporting surrounding analysis of the SotU, Fox wins. Pick a random day and Fox crushes CNN and MSNBC. Even their repeat time slots crush the others.

    Don't feed the troll. Every bar, restaurant, casino, hotel, health club I go into has MSNBC or CNN blaring from their TV sets. If it weren't for commercial/corporate decisions to carry their garbage, CNN and MSNBC wouldn't get half their numbers. Guess what? No one is watching it in any of these places except for a few morons who happen to be in those establishments and have no other life.

    Not for long, Governor Jindal, not for long.

    Looks like Fox viewership stayed semi felt with small increases while MSNBC had some nice gains.

    http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/2012-ratings-fox-news-number-one-for-11-straight-years_b160939

    Was the first site that came up on google.

    " That said, the network still drew more viewers than CNN, MSNBC and HLN combined in primetime. It was also the second-highest delivery for the network ever in total viewers."

    Not surprised though, even I find myself watching more MSNBC than before to try to grasp more of the liberal side being pushed by the president.

    Can't find a basic package without fox news in it can you?
    I didn't think so.
    Thanks for proving me correct.
    Fox forces providers to carry fox and only fox in it's trailer park package, you can't deny it.
    That is the only reason fox news has the rating that is does and it's losing those viewers which should tell uncle rupert something.

    I did notice that once it wasn't looking good for fox this thread was buried.
    Convenient no?

    Yes, there has historically been a strong trend of Marxism inherent in Unions. And? What does that have to do with Obama? Sure big unions contribute a lot of money to him and the democratic party (something that I think they should stop doing) but what the hell has Obama done for the unions? besides measly lip service. Name me one thing.
