MSNBC's Ed Schultz: I Beg Of Thee, Watch Me!

You know, I lot of folks say the mainstream media works for Barack Obama, but maybe we've gotten it a bit backwards. Maybe, after seeing these miserable 3rd quarter numbers, the cable talkies went to Barry O. and said, hey buddy - we helped make you. Now you gotta do something for us - as in, destroy that network that is destroying us:

During the recent third-quarter ratings period, Fox News averaged about 2.26 million total viewers in prime time and was up 2 percent from the same time last year. CNN had 949,000 viewers and was down 30 percent. MSNBC averaged 795,000 viewers and was down 10 percent.

In the coveted 25- to 54-year-old demographic, Fox News averaged 589,000 viewers and was up 5 percent. CNN had 288,000 and was down 39 percent. MSNBC had 275,000 and was down 21 percent.

Well, Baracky tried to knock off FOX, but failed miserably - much like everything else he touches. So the liberal yakkers have resorted to ...begging for viewers. MSNBC's Ed Schultz, for instance - he's more pathetic than that guy that sleeps in a puddle of his own urine at the 53rd Street E station. Via
The Radio Equalizer:

SCHULTZ - TUESDAY (04:52): We are trailing CNN for the month of October so we gotta get after it, Ed heads. We don't want to lose, do we? Come on now. That's the, the balloon boy really screwed me up. You know, it's what happened! They cook up this balloon thing and we gotta cover it and everybody runs to CNN to the tune of 3-, 400,000 more people.

SCHULTZ - WEDNESDAY (07:00): Thank you for being there, listeners, thank you. And I'm a little bit behind CNN this month because of that damn balloon story. That psycho who made, wanted to get a reality TV show, he's screwing everything up. I don't know what the deal is, it's a goofy business.

OooKaaaaaaaaay, Ed. Sure, a family in the Midwest concocted some crazy scheme to fake a family tragedy with a multi-state airborne chase in order to...deprive you of your rightful ratings glory. Riiiiiiiiiiiight....

It's funny, but the only folks left are that actually watching MSNBC are fellow liberal pundits - who anxiously scrawl down tomorrow's talking points - and members of the Obama administration, who call the network to issue corrections when they stray from the Democratic party line...

Wait. Actually, that's not funny at all....
