    Thanks, Brandon. May I quote you? I must be a foaming Liberal; I don’t have TV, but I listen to NPR all the time. Where else can you listen to an hour-long interview with George Will?

    Every time a conservative mentions that Fox has the highest ratings, point out that McDonald’s is the most popular restaurant in the country.

    The idea that “And, for a large majority of the country, their opinion just happens to match yours.” is a bit much to take. I can’t say it’s my idea that there is NO way there is a real majority of Americans who’s opinions match Fox’s or the fact that the ratings are so high because NewsCorp gives itself (Fox) away to cable companies across the nation vs the other available cable outlets (which is missing from the article).

      You mean CNN and MSNBC don’t? Do they charge for their presence on Cox or Roadrunner?

    The reason for this is simple: smart people watch far less television.

    it’s just that there aren’t really as many morons out there as the networks think there are. the alphabet news networks are obviously left wing propaganda organizations. even those most mentally-challenged, public school educated mook can see right through the propaganda. you don’t report anything that is news and you purposely destroy any political figure that isn’t a global-warming nut job. people get tired of being lied too after a while and news today is nothing more than psychological warfare waged on a tired public.

    I believe there is a Freudian ego defense mechanism at work in this article.

    Sorry. I can hardly bear to turn the television on anymore & when I do all of it makes me feel hungry, angry, threatened, empty (HATE) toward television programming.

    Seriously, I have been really enjoying Current TV! I’m sure once it adds Thom Hartmann–that Current TV will surely overtake Fox News!

    if they’re *really* smart then I’d say they’re not watching TV at all or if they do watch they avoid ALL of the corporate ‘news’ outlets (Fox/CNN/NBC/CBS, etc etc)

    If you follow the $$ you’ll find that almost all ‘mainstream’ media outlets are either owned or highly influence (ie: board of directors, etc) by just a small handful of massive corporations…kind of makes it hard to believe that ANY of them actually have a real political leaning but are more likely working to keep the masses ignorant of how things REALLY work…
