I'll take lower rated shows thanx, like The NewsHour and the Canadian "National" that actually have credible accredited journalists that don't
have ratings worries to cloud their journalistic professionalism. One thing I do like about Fox they make Canadians laugh - quite entertaining
actually. Kinda like the Daily Show except Fox is "serious" and no where near as skillfully written.
Thanx, I really had to think for a nanosecond about whether I'd get ambushed for replying truthfully,
You consider the communist broadcasting system to be unbiased? The CBC has its detractors and as you may have guessed I am one of them.
Even if the Fox network totally pandered to the white house, which it doesn't it would not compensate for the OTHER three networks that seem to be
working for the UN instead of the American people.
But getting back to the thread... O'Reilly is chest thumping because people crowed at MSNBC or whatever it is called these days if it is not being
acquired by somebody else that is... before they should have. Frankly, I'm more than surprised that MSNBC still exists.
I'm even more surprised that at least 75% of big US TV is left of center while nearly 50% of the US public votes Republican. Doesn't make sense does
it... I mean if I was an advertiser and I wanted to do business with 50% of the US population then I only can advertise with Fox? One network gets 50%
of the business and the other 3 get 50%?
Not a good model for a profitable business if you ask me.
Smart money goes to where the opportunity lies and stupid money follows everyone else that is the moral of the story.
