Yeah for every Glen Beck theres an Al Sharpton. Fox just happens to be much more successful than the left wing networks. Both are equally useless.
wow, all of a sudden Fox News has an enemy ? I suppose MSNBC is at the bottom of the cable ratings all the time because Fox has less viewers? or that OReilly has had the # 1 Cable spot for the past 12 years ! in all cable News Channels, or was that 11 years ? oh, could that be 10 years running ? Do I feel that the liberal left media has lost the battle of cable news . and the leader is Fox News. and Oreilly has held the top spot of all cable channels for a very long time . and has more viewers than all of them together in his time spot. Mr Moredock needs another article, he failed on the Fox News one . big time . Mr Moredock bashes religion .
artrougue - People are Easily Brainwashed when ALL
they hear is BAD BAD BAD for over 3 years.
Whatta load of crap. Do us a favor Will, just change the channel.
Americans are smart enough to decide for themselves.
hahaha now that is a riot. Tyranny to end tyranny.
Lucky for us the president doesn't have that power. yet.
A way to end the tyranny of Fox News is to get the president to issue an executive order shutting down Fox News.
I like how people keep throwing out viewership numbers when Fox News is challenged as if that somehow magically "makes it alright".
I suppose Penn State's status as a great college makes Sandusky a little more tolerable then, right? Well, maybe not now but it seemed to have worked for a long time....
Or, maybe for a slightly less inflammatory statement you'd like to argue that Ke$ha's "Tik Tok" is a better song for having outsold any Beatles single ever released?
You simply cannot argue that a propaganda machine is legitimate because people watch it.
Plus, apologists also ignore research that points toward Fox viewers as consistently less informed or misinformed about current events. But, I suppose that's because reality has a liberal bias.
So, arty, let's try to be honest here. Do you really believe Fox News is telling you the truth or does it merely fit in nicely with what you happen to believe?
It seems Fox News has been much more effective in nuetralizing MSNBC than Media Matters would like to do to Fox News. Here is some fair and balanced data that reflects MM's ineffectiveness.
Fox ratings for Q2 2012:
•Primetime (Mon-Sun): 1.791M Total Viewers / 355,000 A25-54
•Total Day (Mon-Sun): 1.052M Total Viewers / 254,000 A25-54
MSNBC ratings for Q2 2012:
•Primetime (Mon-Sun): 689,000 Total Viewers / 217,000 A25-54
•Total Day (Mon-Sun): 394,000 Total Viewers / 129,000 A25-54
Most likely the numbers reflect people who are likely to vote.
If the over 54 crowd was included the skew would be even greater in Fox's favor.
You said and I quote "good sense and decency" in your article! Are you sure that as a Democrat you have any knowledge of what those words mean?
Fox News was in an uproar about the Muslim Convention center being built around the corner from The World Trade Center. If you Google Rupert Murdock's News Corporation, you will find that the second highest share holder is a Saudi Prince (Muslim).
When it comes to Fox, I think Media Matters certainly qualifies as "educational" and "testing for public safety". But that's just me.
Fox was saying that Media Matters does not qualify as a non-profit. Under which of the following does anyone think Media Matters qualifies as a non-profit?
From the IRS:
The exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3) are charitable, religious, educational, scientific, literary, testing for public safety, fostering national or international amateur sports competition, and preventing cruelty to children or animals.
The Worse thing that can be said about Murdoch's Empire
is to tell the TRUTH about them.
Will - Thanks for including Murdoch's name in the header for this article.
I wrote an eBook about Murdoch
it sells for 99 cents on Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.
He owns or controls 322 Media Outlets.
He is the Voice of the GOP, and is the ONE blocking the World Recession Recovery.
And have started an online Book
that I update regularly.
FREE UPDATE https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yY6cX8…
The place to go to see ALL Murdoch owns, and what he has been up to. I am up to Chapter 4 now.
Peter Orszag, former head of the Obama Office of Management and Budget writes this piece in support of mandatory voting.
Who was even debating this and why now?
So its okay to object strenuously to people showing ID at the polls when they show up voluntarily, but forcing people to vote is okay?
RACISM = RETHUGLICAN PARTY ... Most people do not want to be racists. Most people would vote against racists. So stopping some people from voting makes racist voting blocks WITH WHITE PHOTO ID a plurality. Over 100 thousand South Carolina voters do not drive, never had decent jobs to afford a car. And they do not have birth certificates born at home to moms without jobs or health insurance for hospital childbirth. In short: perpetuating low wage no wage racism by denying the people who are proof of Rethuglican Party racism effects, deny those who have the most to gain by voting OUT THE LIKES of Nimrata Haley & Bobby Harrell, deny them the vote by requiring them to obtain what they never had a drivers license. And punish the elderly & vision impaired who also do not have photo ID... lucky we have an Attourney General who stops racists from enforcing such laws
Let us not forget that the current mess with 250 candidates thrown off the ballot stems from the legislature's pious attempt to respond to Operation Lost Trust with an ethics bill that (in part) required candidates (but not incumbents) to file Statements of Economic Interest when they filed for office. This ethics law was so distant from the legislative consciousness that when they passed a new law requiring that SEIs be filed electronically, they forgot to repeal that earlier mandate.
So an elected official, representing you and me in Columbia, says the General Assembly doesn't mean that much to him and his give-a-damn meter is busted? REALLY? Do NOT run for re-election then you turd. Don't worry, there WILL be another to fill your worthless shoes and maybe they might give a damn. SHAME on the General Assembly, for not at the VERY LEAST, censuring him for those statements. Apparently there are MANY turds up there that need to be flushed.
Haley, Merrill ... hypocrites, jerks. If this is the best SC can do ...
I'm glad I don't claim this backwater of a state.
We need another Operation Lost Trust and start at the top with the most corrupt one of all - Nikki Haley.
