kills me how the kool-aid drinkers just cant face reality, and have to make up a reason to justify their slants.
the facts - for Jan 27, 2010:
FNC – 1,884,000 viewers
CNN – 768,000 viewers
MSNBC –565,000 viewers
CNBC – 255,000 viewers
HLN –347,000 viewers
oh, but thats because only the gullible are watching FNC.......yeah
Though I don't watch NBC News, Fox News' ratings pale by comparison...
Brian Williams' broadcast averaged 9.444 million total viewers, compared with Gibson's 8.187 million and Katie Couric's 6.750 million total viewers
I have to pay to watch FOX News, NBC is still "free" for those with an antenna and converter. I'll pay thank you very much.
Apples and oranges.
most news providers have an agenda it just depends on which one suits you as a news consumer, I am generally skeptical about all of them and watch and listen to many outlets
I find on the most annoying list
1. Keith Olberman
2. Bill O'Reilly
3. Glen (I'll cry if you want me to) Beck
4. Hannity and his weird looking buddy
5. Chris Matthews
6. Shepard Smith
7. Anderson Cooper
In general I like the network news because the news personalities are not annoying
Number one on my list from yours Ed is Chris Matthews.
The man just seems to love a Machiavellian approach to politics and seems to view everything through that lens. He's tied with Glenn Beck. That guy is just plain spooky, what a propagandist.
