    The more the various network news shows slide to the left and selectively cover what they want people to know, the more their audience drains away. Too bad, so sad.

    But look on the bright side: That's change we can believe in!

    No mention of how the readership of the New York Times itself, is doing. But it's not hard to guess. :D

    Ratings Fall on Newscasts at 2 NetworksBy BILL CARTER
    Published: April 1, 2010

    With buyouts and layoffs in progress, the mood at ABC News cannot be good. It was probably not enhanced by the ratings report for the first quarter of the year showing that the network’s evening newscast, “World News,” had sunk to the lowest numbers the program has had in a first quarter since the People Meter was introduced by Nielsen in 1987.

    The same situation prevailed at CBS, where the “Evening News” also hit a new low for the months of January through March.

    How's the Fox Entertainment News doing now that Sarah Palin is on there?

    One attempted diversion by Mare later, ABC and CBS are still continuing their long slide into the tank.

    I didn't disagree, I just wanted to know if Fox was doing any better with the help of Sarah Palin. I'm not a fan of any of the news organizations.

    What's sad is, that you think you're persuading anybody with your desperate twists and turns. :rolleyes:

    I guess Liberals don't have to be told what to think.
