...then Baracky, maybe you ought to admit you made a mistake by taking on the Big Dog, and biting off more than you could chew. Seems like your proto-fascist attempt to silence your critics backfired on you, just a bit, you know?
Take a look at the top-10 rated cable news shows for 2009:
1. The O'Reilly Factor - 3.34M
2. Hannity - 2.51M
3. Glenn Beck - 2.32M
4. Special Report - 2.04M
5. On The Record - 1.97M
6. The Fox Report - 1.88M
7. O'Reilly Factor (11pm Rpt) - 1.51M
8. Your World - 1.48M
9. Americas Newsroom - 1.43M
10. Studio B - 1.21M
See a pattern there? Even the Huffington Post bows:
2009 was a record year for the Fox News Channel.
The News Corp-owned cable news outlet has just finished its best year among total viewers in its 13-plus year history.
Both CNN and MSNBC, meanwhile, are down significantly in all categories.
But its not just the network's conservative opinion commentators that are having their best years ever. The network's signature news programs — "Special Report with Bret Baier," "The Fox Report with Shepard Smith," "Studio B with Shepard Smith," and "Your World with Neil Cavuto" — also had their best years ever among total viewers.
But I thought FOX was just "opinion journalism masquerading as news" and "not a news organization". Guess Obama and his lackys were wrong again, and FOX has survived the attack only to come back more powerful than ever. Defeat the force you cannot, oh weak Axlerod...
Will the Obami ever learn? Or will they stick their heads into the lion's mouth again, overcome by the irresistible desire to prove they they are the ones we have been waiting for, and not Glenn Beck? Those who work on the dark side are often clever, but not always smart...
