Lefty media death spiral update: Fox News outdraws MSNBC and CNN combined

Will MSNBC’s last viewer please change the channel? Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for MSNBC, along came the quarterly ratings reports. In both daytime and prime time, MSNBC endured its lowest quarterly demo numbers in a decade, and its total viewership since the final quarter of 2007. Prime-time viewership was down 45 percent in the demo from the first quarter of 2014, while daytime viewership was down 39 percent in the demo. Between the hours of 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Monday, for instance, more people were watching Al Jazeera America than MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, […]

Class Act: David Axelrod Goes On Fox News To Sell His Book, Then Goes On ABC To Bash Fox News

  Hat/Tip to Newsmax and Politico. Ah the impeccable scruples of the left… Sure! I’d be glad to go onto YOUR network so that I could sell some of MY books!! Then, after you’ve treated me fairly, I’ll go on a “friendly” network and trash YOUR network so I don’t look so bad to all the other “scrupulous” lefties out there that are just like me. Class act all the way, Axe. /sarcasm off Fox News host Bill O’Reilly called Democratic political adviser David Axelrod “two-faced” for using O’Reilly’s show to sell his new book, then insulting Fox News Channel soon afterward. […]

CNN: Belief In American Exceptionalism Makes Us “Dumb”…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. This article begs the question, “Can CNN get any dumber?” Talk of American exceptionalism has become headline news, with loud sputtering from Rudy Giuliani, who suggested that President Barack Obama doesn’t love America in the same way that the rest of us do. Giuliani wants to dwell on our exceptionalism — the idea that we’re different from other countries, and much better. It’s an old idea that Obama took on in the second year of his presidency, when he said: “I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and […]

The Next Round In “CNN Wants To Become MSNBC”: Don’t Bomb ISIS Because They “Want Us To”

Hat/Tip to Jarred Stone at WeaselZippers. Yes, you read that right. The cowardly terrorists which make up the ISIS ranks really WANT us to come and bomb them to smithereens! They NEED it because, well….er….honestly, you’ll have to ask CNN’s Sally Kohn because I’m too much of a Conservative to delve down to the depths of stupidity to properly answer that question. But no worries, Ms. Kohn is CNN’s resident expert on ISIS and why they want, nay NEED us to bomb them. /facepalm One of the self-described “leading progressive voices in America,” CNN commentator and DailyBeast columnist Sally Kohn, […]

Since Dispute With Fox, Dish Network Has Lost 90,000 Subscribers

Hat/Tip to TownHall.com. File this one under, “Underestimating Your Customers’ Wishes”. Dish Network is bleeding customers right and left since deciding to stop carrying the Fox News Channel. Thousands of TV viewers have proven they’re more loyal to Fox News than to the Dish network, following a dispute between the TV provider and political news channel. Since Dish removed Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network on Dec. 20, the provider has lost about 90,000 subscribers. What began as a contract dispute, is turning out to be quite harmful to Dish Network. Dish CEO Charlie Ergen in a Christmas Eve video […]

Well MSNBC We’ve Got Good News And Bad News…

  Hat/Tip to Conservative Tribune. The Good News? Megyn Kelly and Fox News will be having a very happy Christmas. The Bad News? MSNBC has now been viewed by fewer people than airport radar and sonograms. – Source Even CNN is doing better than MSNBC. It was just revealed that the liberal MSNBC network is facing dismal ratings, and not even the recent midterm election coverage could give it a necessary boost. According to Accuracy in Media, viewership of the leftist channel is down 13% from last year to November 2014. The low numbers mean that MSNBC is now trailing […]

CNN Accidentally Aired THE Most Inaccurate And Embarrassing Banner OF ALL TIME

Hat/Tip to Joshua Riddle at Young Conservatives and Twitchy. Since the absolute drubbing the Democratic Party, and Progressives in general, took in the 2014 Midterm Elections, it is easy to see how so many on the left are having problems focusing on their jobs. Or at least that seems to be the case over at CNN…   Wow the SEALs are out of control pic.twitter.com/g0F9Dvidbh — Jon Passantino (@passantino) November 8, 2014 Ohh CNN. Facepalm RT@passantino: Wow the SEALs are out of control pic.twitter.com/Ihra76WV0K — Brandon Stahl (@BrandonStahl1) November 8, 2014     .@passantino @Popehat NOW WE DONT HAVE A […]

CNN Poll: 70% Of Voters Are Angry At Direction The Country Is Headed…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and CNN. The “Hope and Change” that Barack Obama rode into Washington DC on seems to have evaporated, leaving him to face a fully GOP controlled Congress for the last two years of his tenure as President. Poll after poll is showing that all Americans are getting fed up with Obama’s globalization tendencies and his socialization schemes. Not a poll Democrats want to see with the November elections right around the corner… Via CNN: Washington (CNN) — Nearly 7 in 10 Americans are angry at the direction the country is headed and 53% of Americans disapprove of […]

State-Run Media Circling the Drain: MSNBC Has Lower Ratings Than Reruns of “Shark Tank”

  For the past 3 months reruns of “Shark Tank” beat out every show on MSNBC. Oh, and Fox News is still #1. No one would say the summer of 2014 suffered any shortage of breaking news. From the crisis in Ferguson, Mo., to the cultural impact of Robin Williams’ and Joan Rivers’ sudden deaths and all the way up to recent round-the-clock coverage of U.S. strikes on ISIS, cable news has been heavily occupied. The last three months have been so big, Fox News Channel just clocked its first quarter with the most-watched prime time across all of cable […]

CNN Talking Head on Whether Oklahoma Beheading is Terrorism: “People Behead For All Sorts Of Reasons”…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Oh the lengths Liberals will go to and they will twist themselves into a virtual pretzel to force any situation to fit their narrative….   And yes, Dr. Hill really DID say that about beheadings.   Honest. We can’t make this stuff up, no one would believe us! . . . .

In Keeping with their Classy Image, CNN Anchor Calls Fox News: ‘F*cksticks’

CNN must be so proud of Bill Weir Hat/Tip to Mediaite. CNN Anchor Bill Weir to Fox Nation: ‘You Willfully Ignorant F*cksticks’   The Clinton News Network, I mean CNN just keeps proving why they deserve the bottom of the basement ratings. In an effort to show his unbiased, journalistic integrity, CNN anchor Bill Weir tweeted a gutter-worthy message to Fox Nation. On Thursday, the Twitter account for Fox Nation, a blog run by Fox News, tweeted a link to a post headlined, “Climate Doesn’t Cooperate With Al Gore’s Group’s Visit to Denver EPA Hearings.” The story, aggregated from the […]

Even the “Clinton News Network” (CNN) laughs at Hillary’s ‘dead broke’ comment

CNN anchor can’t hold back from laughing at Hillary’s latest ridiculous statement   Hat/Tip to Douglas Barclay at Rare. Yeah, Hillary was as broke as Bill was celibate… For whatever reason, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been trying to convince the American people that her and her husband Bill aren’t as well off as the superrich they often disparage. On Monday, CNN host Allison Kosik couldn’t contain her laughter as her co-host quote Hillary’s latest attempt to relate to the average American. “Despite earning more than $100 million bucks since they left the White House, Clinton tells the Guardian that […]

CNN: “Redskins” Could Be The New “N-Word”…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Weasel Zippers has it right when they say how incredibly asinine this is… So dumb. Via Mediaite: For his commentary segment on The Tom Joyner Show Thursday, CNN’s Don Lemon drew some parallels between the “n-word” and the term “Redskins,” which is currently at the center of the debate over Washington, D.C.’s NFL team name. “An offensive word that many people hate and think should be banned. Others say not so fast, there’s nothing wrong with using the word, especially when we’re talking about a group of people we hold dear, like, even love,” Lemon said Thursday. […]

Gun Sales Soar Skyward, as Gun Crimes Plummet

Hat/Tip to TownHall, from a great piece by Katie Pavlich, one of my favorite columnists. When Nanny Bloomberg releases a report so factually inaccurate that CNN takes him to task on it, you know it’s a whopper of a lie. Earlier this week, Michael Bloomberg’s new anti-gun Everytown released a bogus report claiming since Newtown in December 2013, 74 school shootings have taken place. The report was so bogus, even CNN went out of the way, twice, to correct the record. More from Ed Morrissey: For the second time in two days, CNN went out of its way to debunk […]

Morgan Freeman on Race keeping people from wealth: “Bullshit.”

Hat/Tip to Conservative Videos. Thank God all of Hollywood is not completely Liberal! Moran Freeman gets right to the point on a recent CNN interview, in which the host, Don Lemon tries to bait him into saying that black people and minorities cannot be wealthy. Here is a partial transcript of the interview. LEMON: Here’s a stat from your show. And it’s just the richest 85 people on this planet have as much money as the poorest 3.5 billion. FREEMAN: Yes. Right. That’s on the planet, however. That’s… LEMON: That’s not far off in America. FREEMAN: No, it isn’t far […]

Piers Morgan Gets the Ax at CNN: And Nothing of Value was Lost

Piers Morgan, whose rants about guns undoubtably thrilled all three of his viewers, has reportedly parted ways with CNN.  Of course, nothing of value was lost.  CNN has given up on trying to make Piers Morgan the new Larry King after a three-year run and will pull the plug on the Briton’s 9 p.m. talk show, which has been finishing far behind rivals Megyn Kelly on Fox News Channel and Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. According to Nielsen ratings from last week, “Piers Morgan Live” was seen nightly by just 270,000 viewers nationwide and only 50,000 people in the key advertising […]

Larry King’s Suggestion to CNN: Hire Spongebob!

Larry King was asked about improving CNN’s fortunes.  His answer, while in jest, says a great deal.  Lisa Graas has the details… Media Bistro: “CNN’s got problems,” [Larry King] said. “I don’t know what they’re going to do.” “Cartoons” he joked as advice for CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker. “Put ‘Spongebob’ on CNN— 24 hours— until a big story breaks. Then we break into ‘Spongebob,’ and go to the hurricane, and then back to ‘Spongebob.’” Frankly, I think having Spongebob on staff would increase the credibility of CNN immensely.  Of course, even the Teletubbies would do a great deal for […]

More of Obama’s Thug Tactics

Greta Van Susteren, a cable television personality since 1991, has spent her 14 year TV career building her reputation as a hard hitting, unbiased arbiter of the truth. She started working for CNN in 1991 as a legal analyst. She came into prominence during the OJ Simpson trial and after 11 years at CNN, she went to FOX News. Greta is known for asking hard questions, but being respectful in the process. She garners respect from not only her colleagues, but also the folks that she has interviewed. That is why it’s no surprise that Van Susteren is pulling no […]
