The Fox News Channel showed its muscle to finish out the 2012 election cycle. For the month of November, the cable news channel topped its competition, with its daytime programming having record months. According to data from Nielsen Media Research, all three major cable news channels were up significantly from this time a year ago.
Until more of the American people stop watching ABC, NBC and CBS and stop reading their local newspapers we will not be able to recover as a nation. The bulk of the population simply are unaware of what is going on due to the continued cover-up and omissions by the media. Was at my quilting group yesterday at church. One liberal member mentioned how she thought it outrageous the way our veterans are treated. She specifically mentioned Congress. Clearly she had heard nothing about Obama proposing drastic cuts to benefits for them. I mentioned how sad it was that Obama´s nominee for either State and/or Defense had testified before Congress that Viet Nam veterans cut off ears and noses and raped civilians and how he threw what he claimed were his medals over the fence at the Capital. My fellow quilter looked perplexed. She then asked if I was referring to Senator Kerry. I said yes. She then said nothing more. She loves Elizabeth Warren BTW and we live in Virginia.
So, more people than ever are watching Fox. And we still lost.
What does this mean? Time for some serious soul searching. Perhaps our message is too much anti-liberal and not enough about solving real problems.
Darrell Issa demands documents from Eric holder - because it´s his job - and Obama voters don´t give a rip snort! Sean Hannity should have been interviewing the Mexican families of those people whose loved ones were killed by the guns that Eric Holder sent to Mexico. Put a face on this tragedy. Michael Moore would have done as much and UniVision would not have ignored this!
Let´s face reality here. We care about the people who voted for Obama, but they don´t know this. Mitt Romney would have made their lives better. But they don´t understand how! We need to change our message. We have to live with these people and Fox winning the ratings war isn´t accomplishing a goll darn thing for any of us.
# 3, I completely agree with you. There have been so many years of what I call "confrontational programming" @ the Fox News Cable. Most times their programming is similar, if not identical to the "View".
The fact that they´re # 1 does not mean their viewership is anymore informed. Just stroked like their viewers are pet poodles.
Well no more! FNC,if there were curious leaders over there, would be covering the US Senate and reporting what Reid is contemplating,what mccain,Graham are pontificating about,how the abolition of the fillibuster is pending,how the Senate will become like the House,depriving some Senators of equal representation for their smaller States.
Decimating our military? FNC needs to consider the Citizens who chance to tune in,instead of making their shows like Dancing with the Stars.
IMHO, It seems to me, that some who presume to speak about what is going on at FNC do not. Too much "Anti-Liberal" talk? Seriously? I guess that would depend on what some think of the drumbeat of "Anti-Conservative" networks which flood the airwaves 24/7. If they actually watched FNC, rather than taking cheap shots at the only network that even tries to balance out the rest of them, they would know that discussions about what is going on with Congress and with obama are going on most of the time. THAT is why FNC stays #1.
Our side loses because they do not know how to throw bricks when the d`Rats are throwing mud. We have truth and facts on our side, but sorry presenters to get the MSG across, they act like they don`t know how to talk to the people...or how to explain anything! The main reason that the left wins elections (besides stealing them)is they use languish that "most" ignorant, low class, criminals and UnAmerican people can understand. This is it in a nut shell: We Rats will GIVE you FREE things and the Republicans will take away your free things and stop you from getting (anything). As far as FN I don`t watch anymore, can`t stand to see the faces of the evil left .
Major U.S. cellphone providers received more than $20 million from law enforcement agencies in conjunction with more than 1.1. million user information requests in 2012, according to documents released Monday by Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass. Five of the seven companies queried offered precise or ballpark figures for the revenue they received from law enforcement in 2012. AT&T said it received $10,298,000, T-Mobile USA said approximately $11 million, Verizon Wireless said less than $5 million, U.S. Cellular said $241,000 and C Spire said $55,000.
NEW DELHI— The Dalai Lama will not attend memorial services for fellow Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nelson Mandela in South Africa, where the Buddhist spiritual leader has twice been unable to obtain a visa, a spokesman said Monday. Tenzin Takhla gave no specific reason for the Dalai Lama missing the memorial service in Johannesburg and funeral in Mandela´s hometown, saying only that "logistically it´s impossible at this time." The Dalai Lama — based in the Indian hill town of Dharamsala since he fled China in 1959 — was welcomed to South Africa in 1996 and met with Mandela when he was South
Newspaper editors typically operate behind the scenes, overseeing reporters inside the newsroom and outside the spotlight. But since Ricardo Baca was named the marijuana editor of The Denver Post last month, he has been celebrated across the globe. He has appeared on CNN and “The Colbert Report.” Long-lost high school acquaintances have surfaced, with one inviting him to his friend’s basement for a smoke. Emails have flooded in from freelancers and readers, offering up their expertise on the subject matter. “We’re taking an extremely credible, professional approach to this,” Mr. Baca said. “I was surprised that it was such an immediate punch
There has been much ado about MSNBC anchor Martin Bashir´s contemptible attack on Sarah Palin, which has now resulted in Bashir resigning from the left wing network. But to those of us who write from the right his remarks are anything but unique. Despicable remarks are hurled at us all the time and the only difference about the Bashir flap is that ours usually come anonymously via email or snail mail. In my experience, the most hateful responses I´ve ever received are for columns addressing either gay rights or radical Islam. In 2007, I wrote a column for the New York
4 Things the MSM Won’t Tell You About Obama’s Inequality Speech: Now that the excitement has died down You have to admire President Obama for choosing to give a speech declaring that the fight against “growing inequality”–specifically economic inequality–is “the defining challenge of our time” and the “focus” of “all our efforts”–given that: a. Five years into his presidency he so far hasn’t done anything to stop growing income inequality–the problem has gotten worse on his watch. b. He doesn’t have any proposals (“It’s time to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act”) that come close to solving the problem as he defines it.
I’ve never been flogged in the public square, but now I have a rough idea what it’s like. On Thursday, Harvey Weinstein, the US distributor of the Judi Dench-Steve Coogan film “Philomena,” placed a full-page, color attack ad in The New York Times that screamed my name in blood-red letters. “The New York Times, Los Angeles Times and USA Today ALL PRAISE ‘PHILOMENA’ WITH A 92 % CERTIFIED FRESH SCORE ON Rotten Tomatoes,” read the ad. “BUT THE NEW YORK POST’S KYLE SMITH HAS A DIFFERENT OPINION. ‘ANOTHER HATEFUL ATTACK ON CATHOLICS.’ ” The ad (now brightening the wall over
Dayna Morales, the server who claimed last month to have been left a note about her “lifestyle” instead of a tip, was fired from her restaurant Sunday, and is reportedly returning the donations she received in the outpouring of sympathy after her story went viral. Morales, an openly-gay server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, NJ became a cause celebre after she posted a receipt informing her she had not been tipped because of her lifestyle. But her story began to unravel when the couple who left the receipt disputed Morales’ story, and provided bank statements showing they had in fact tipped
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a last minute decision not to participate in a memorial service for the late South African President Nelson Mandela, despite having notified the South African government that he would attend the event. The decision was made in light of the high transportation costs resulting from the short notice of the trip and the security required for the prime minister in Johannesburg. The Prime Minister’s Office found that the trip would have cost roughly 7 million shekels ($2.4 million) – 2.8 million shekels for chartering a private El Al plane and a further 3.2 million shekels for
