This article doesn't say anything about MSNBC. Did their viewership go down as well?


LOL!

Too small a sample size to be included.

You must have at least 100 viewers, so MSDNC didn't make the cut.

Interesting CNN and FOX are losing viewers like a sieve loses water.

This is what happens when you turn a once-objective news source into non-stop 24-hour-a-day shilling and propaganda.

People are waking up to the MSM lies. O happy day!


The article goes on to note: "They are turning to independent shows, like mine, and like The Young Turks... they are turning to news sites like The Huffington Post and Daily Caller... " Press TV is also up

And maybe ATS?

But, the Young turks are nothing but biased, left wing shills for the Democrat party. Pretty much all they do is trash conservatives, Republicans and Christians.

Yeah, that could be part of it.

Who wants to pay for news that keeps saying, "the economy is getting better," when everyone's actual experience is that things are getting worse and worse?

Getting propaganda jammed down your throat is bad enough. Being forced to pay for it adds insult to injury.

You're a riot.

A self-admitted Communist wants to complain about 'getting propaganda jammed down your throat"?

Funny all Fifty viewers must've went to florida to protest.... Does CNN count its employees as viewers?

Everyone I know is switching over to RT news because it at least reports news that is news..

People are tired of the drama and opinions

If your a news station report the F.ing news...

Don't exploit peoples horrors for your profit

Report news.... not propaganda


RT is extremely biased. Its like MSNBC on crack........


I guess what a few of you are saying is that people are just moving to new sources of biased propaganda.

Breakingnews.com Dumps User Submitted News Feature

I stopped watching cable news last year when Anderson Cooper called Jesse Ventura's "Conspiracy Theory" show "a joke". I later found an internet news site. breakingnews.com, a start-up within MSNBC.

Nothing but headlines and stories.

And it even featured a user submitted ticker where anybody could upload a link to a story and it would be posted under the "Submitted News" heading. All updated live.

I paid much more attention to the user uploaded links.

I took to submitting news.

Until a few days ago.

They changed their policy such that only "Partners and Journalists" may submit links to news stories.

Previously there were many under-reported items and stories you would never hear about through such a larger news outlet, all thanks to people like you and me uploading links. Now there's none of that. Just more of the same MSM drivel and propaganda and filler.

It seems like they don't want people like us spreading the information that they won't through their venue.

Makes me freaking sick. I live in the US, not Israel. I'm sick of having our media turened into an endless 24-7 zionist propaganda outlet. How did this happen, when did this happen? Oops we aren't allowed to talk about that, are we? Funny how that works, isn't it?

Fortunately, people are waking up. People are sick of seeing the US dragged into the ground to serve Zionist agendas.

Your time is gonna, come, Israel-firsters!



Maybe because the media outlets are owned by Hope I don't come of as a anti Semite (god forbid) Jewish $

I'm really loving all the conservative responses to this thread, talking about people realising that the mainstream media only promotes left wing propaganda, and people giving it up for that reason. Apparently you didn't take much of a look at the username, or the avatar, of the person who made the OP.

Seriously funny stuff.

While all of these hopeful comments (such as people are seeing through the MSM strategy for misinformation, folks waking up, etc...) I have one theory that conforms to Occam's Razor...

Perhaps folks just cannot afford cable TV any longer. Coupled with internet access and a land line, a package deal runs about $200 (15% of which are taxes). THEN pile on a 3g or 4g cell phone (duplicative internet access) and *BAM!* you're now spending close to $350/month.

Just more evidence that these so-called "jobless numbers" are not a true measure of reality.

Sorry if somebody espoused this idea earlier...no time to read through all the pages of comments.

If Fox News and CNN weren't catering towards what it's audience wanted, people wouldn't be watching it and paying it's bills. That is the elegance dynamics offered by a free-market, little of which could be offered by state media.

That could explain some but not a 50% drop.

The article also said that the viewership was up from 4th quarter 2011.

Not getting my hopes up for an enlightened public.

Back in 1987, I was given an assignment in college for a Film/Television class. The assignment was we had, was to look up this incident that happened in South America or the Mexico area. We were to find five articles in the newspapers and/or news broadcasts and to determine the facts and reasons for the event. What we discovered was you couldn't find a set of consisting facts, or reasons. The news is censored and flawed right from the source. The reporters are not always accurate with their facts. The reporter's personal opinions and biases are a part of their reporting it to their personal objectives. Then you have what happens at the office and the owner's adgendas of censoring the news.
I hate the national news. I few they are slick liars and manipulators. Local news seems more factual and honest.
The national news has so many holes in their reporting, it is annoying. After 911, and the Sadam Statue being pulled over I stopped watching. I did watch the Hurricane Katrina events unfold and couldn't believe how slow rescues were and preplanning evacuations didn't happen. That was horrible. I perfer to read the news online or in newspapers or magazines. I don't think you can rely on one source to be accurate.

I don't watch CNN as much as I did because:

They hired a bunch of new pretty girls, who interview themselves. They absolutely will not let a person who is interviewed complete a sentence. They are silly; and annoying. That Brooke Baldwin person is the worst. She should be moved to their other network to gossip and junk with the rest of those silly people. Let her scream and talk really fast like that awful "Jane" person.

They have switched around the programming, and instead of "The Situation Room" with Wolf being the evening news, it's now Erin somebody, with her little "Out Front" show. Wolf Blitzer comes on so early, it's over by the time I get in, and that is supposed to be their premier news show.

I never, ever, want to hear the words "Britney, Lohan, or Kardashian" come out of Wolf's mouth. Ever. And they do all too often.

The commercials are LOUD, obnoxious, and I can't abide them.

But on Sunday's they have Fareed Zakaria and Candy Crowley's show, and those are the two best news shows on TV period.

My two.
