Hi Rez, I don't believe we have met. Welcome to ATS.
What you are failing to understand is that the ratings do not reflect the value of their content. Yes, Fox beats out the other news channels...but it
doesn't beat SpongeBob, or even the re-runs of Golden Girls!
So the rating are meaningless. But can you comment on the quality of their content or are they just doing well because they hire the chicks that got
too old to become a Lakers Girl?
Hi there Sheep, nice to meet you too. First off, I don't think 5 million people watch Golden Girl reruns. That's the number watching O'Reilly
nightly. 11 million watched Fox because they knew they would get fair and balanced debate coverage, while only 10 million watched Monday night
football. Not sure 11 million have ever watched Sponge Bob.
I sure would like to know what network you get your news from. I bet they're not biased to the left at all, huh. I occasionally will drop into CNN,
got to give it to them that they cover world affairs the best, but even then I wonder if I'm getting the full story. I can't watch MSNBC at all
because they are so obvious to the left, but hey, ever since they chose to not hide that fact they passed up CNN in the ratings.
Let's talk about content. Why haven't the other stations covered the Libya murders at all. Something as major as an Ambassador being killed at an
American Embassy, and all the other channels are downplaying it. The major three networks haven't reported any stories on it since all the new
developments over the past week, which there are many new developments. All ye on the left continue to claim that there were no stand down orders
given, or that Obama wasn't aware of the events unfolding, or that it really was the result of a You Tube video, because that's what the White House
claimed for two weeks after the attacks. So much evidence to the contrary. Let me ask, how many on the left even know that a suspect in the attacks
is being held in Tunisia, first detained in Turkey but allowed to be transferred to his home country of Tunisia, who is suspected of being Al Queda,
and that Tunisia refused to let us have access to him. Obama did nothing. It took a Republican Senator to write a letter to Tunisia who raised a
little hell about cutting off aid to this country and now our FBI has access to the guy.
Fox News coverage of Sandy aftermath. They were first to start reporting the looting, the violence, and the ugliness because the other networks
didn't want to show for fear of hurting Obama. He came in and got his photo ops and left, while people were dumpster diving for food, fighting for
gas, looting and what more. This won't bode well for Obama if it continues to get out of control as the election approaches, and they know this.
The networks were all over Bush and how terrible he was after Katrina!
When it comes to content at Fox News, they will always bring in someone from the left to debate and get both sides because they aren't afraid to show
you both sides. Why? Because they know they are on the "right" side of the issue.
We all can go back and forth debating this stuff on these forums but the fact remains liberals will believe what they believe in and conservatives
will continue to know they are wrong! You're left, I'm right. You're wrong and I'm still right.
Either way, thank God we only have a few more days left of this election madness, then we can all get back to some real conspiracies.
