Kansas people is funny!

Maybe DeAnn's husband can get a job with Congressman Cleaver's office if that's her new beat.

That should be Faux News.

Fox=Conservative
MSNBC=anti-Bush (not liberal)

Riiiiiight.... DeAnn bias at its best.

DeAnn, I don't know the first thing about you, and I wouldn't know if I've even read any of your articles in the Star. But you don't even have the appearance of impartiality on BuzzBlog. On this page alone, here's DeAnn's choice of topics to cover:

Brownback might be endorsed by a man who "resigned his seat in the House last year after he was indicted in a campaign finance case."

"The press (except for those at the Fox News channel, of course) are falling all over themselves to christen Obama the candidate to beat in the Democratic primaries."

"Needless to say, liberal blogs are howling with laughter at the announcement that William "Bill" Yossess is the new pastry chef at the White House."

"Cheney's former communications director offered juicy details about how the White House's efforts to control the news media and their coverage. Some of journalists' worst suspicions were confirmed."

"And note the jab about [President Bush's] treatment of Speaker Nancy Pelosi."

Deann,
At least you admitted that MSNBC is a Bush bashing station.

Craig, the latest polls say 71% of Americans are Bush bashers.

You did'nt know MSNBC and CNN were Liberal networks , what planet have you been on ? Explaines why Fox kills all other in the ratings.

Thats like saying you did'nt know the "red" star was a liberal news paper lol.

Fox News and conservative talk radio are winning the ratings game because their perspective more accurately reflects the beliefs and attitudes of the American People. MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS , and The Star are failing at ratings because they do not.

Bush is losing at the Polls because he abandoned his conservative base in an effort to appease the loudmouth liberal minority who hates him anyway ..

milwolf, Fake News is winning because they can get people like you to write stuff like that and make you and others actually believe its true. You have been programmed well.

Right on Milwolf preach the truth too the Liberal pinheads and koolaid drinkers .

Rubert Murdoch this weekend:
Asked if his News Corp. managed to shape the agenda on the war in Iraq, Murdoch said: "No, I don't think so. We tried." Asked by Rose for further comment, he said: "We basically supported the Bush policy in the Middle East, but we have been very critical of his execution."

Not sure where the "critical" part was, I thought it was the responsibility of news organizations to "report" rather than "shape the agenda".

dh, thanks for proving the point.

"Fox News and conservative talk radio are winning the ratings game because their perspective more accurately reflects the beliefs and attitudes of the American People. MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS , and The Star are failing at ratings because they do not."

Fox News highest rated shows garner 1.5 million viewers, or about half the audience of a "Law and Order" rerun on TNT. To put that in perspective, eight times more viewers watch "Men in Trees" a perfectly pedestrian "comedy" on ABC (the big three network news shows draw in 6-9 million viewers).

NO ONE IS WATCHING 24 HOUR NEWS. FOX News, MSNBC and CNN are engaging in a race to see who is more irrelevant. FOX just happens to be winning by showing flashy graphics and loud, mock outraged hosts. Its the equivalent of holding up a pair of car keys to distract a baby.

By the same token, the network propagandacasts have taken a nose dive in the ratings. Last figures I saw were 27 million viewers, down from 30 million just a short time before.

I actually started listening to Rush Limbaugh because his show offered even more, and certainly more articulately stated, information on liberal positions on the various issues than these idiotic newtwork shows. That was owing to his habit of allowing liberals who called in to go to the head of the line.

And, they never learn. CBS replaced that old fraud Cronkhite with Rather, an even bigger joke and then when he got caught dispensing blatantly false information they replaced him with a pro-abortion protester whose only credibility is with women even dumber than she is.

"Last figures I saw were 27 million viewers, down from 30 million just a short time before."

That is a 10% drop in viewership. Indeed troubling, but not as troubling as the 22% drop in viewership FOX NEWS experienced last fall.

All news programming is experiencing a drop in viewership because no one under 30 watches the news. We get our news online.
