The Fox News Channel showed its muscle to finish out the 2012 election cycle. For the month of November, the cable news channel topped its competition, with its daytime programming having record months. According to data from Nielsen Media Research, all three major cable news channels were up significantly from this time a year ago.
Until more of the American people stop watching ABC, NBC and CBS and stop reading their local newspapers we will not be able to recover as a nation. The bulk of the population simply are unaware of what is going on due to the continued cover-up and omissions by the media. Was at my quilting group yesterday at church. One liberal member mentioned how she thought it outrageous the way our veterans are treated. She specifically mentioned Congress. Clearly she had heard nothing about Obama proposing drastic cuts to benefits for them. I mentioned how sad it was that Obama´s nominee for either State and/or Defense had testified before Congress that Viet Nam veterans cut off ears and noses and raped civilians and how he threw what he claimed were his medals over the fence at the Capital. My fellow quilter looked perplexed. She then asked if I was referring to Senator Kerry. I said yes. She then said nothing more. She loves Elizabeth Warren BTW and we live in Virginia.
So, more people than ever are watching Fox. And we still lost.
What does this mean? Time for some serious soul searching. Perhaps our message is too much anti-liberal and not enough about solving real problems.
Darrell Issa demands documents from Eric holder - because it´s his job - and Obama voters don´t give a rip snort! Sean Hannity should have been interviewing the Mexican families of those people whose loved ones were killed by the guns that Eric Holder sent to Mexico. Put a face on this tragedy. Michael Moore would have done as much and UniVision would not have ignored this!
Let´s face reality here. We care about the people who voted for Obama, but they don´t know this. Mitt Romney would have made their lives better. But they don´t understand how! We need to change our message. We have to live with these people and Fox winning the ratings war isn´t accomplishing a goll darn thing for any of us.
# 3, I completely agree with you. There have been so many years of what I call "confrontational programming" @ the Fox News Cable. Most times their programming is similar, if not identical to the "View".
The fact that they´re # 1 does not mean their viewership is anymore informed. Just stroked like their viewers are pet poodles.
Well no more! FNC,if there were curious leaders over there, would be covering the US Senate and reporting what Reid is contemplating,what mccain,Graham are pontificating about,how the abolition of the fillibuster is pending,how the Senate will become like the House,depriving some Senators of equal representation for their smaller States.
Decimating our military? FNC needs to consider the Citizens who chance to tune in,instead of making their shows like Dancing with the Stars.
IMHO, It seems to me, that some who presume to speak about what is going on at FNC do not. Too much "Anti-Liberal" talk? Seriously? I guess that would depend on what some think of the drumbeat of "Anti-Conservative" networks which flood the airwaves 24/7. If they actually watched FNC, rather than taking cheap shots at the only network that even tries to balance out the rest of them, they would know that discussions about what is going on with Congress and with obama are going on most of the time. THAT is why FNC stays #1.
Our side loses because they do not know how to throw bricks when the d`Rats are throwing mud. We have truth and facts on our side, but sorry presenters to get the MSG across, they act like they don`t know how to talk to the people...or how to explain anything! The main reason that the left wins elections (besides stealing them)is they use languish that "most" ignorant, low class, criminals and UnAmerican people can understand. This is it in a nut shell: We Rats will GIVE you FREE things and the Republicans will take away your free things and stop you from getting (anything). As far as FN I don`t watch anymore, can`t stand to see the faces of the evil left .
In a May 30, 2013, letter to CIA officers on the ground last fall in Benghazi, Libya, CIA director John Brennan notifies survivors of those attacks that congressional oversight committees remain interested in hearing from them. HPSCI (House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence) and SSCI (Senate Select Committee on Intelligence), Brennan wrote, “have asked that CIA leadership reach out to officers who were in Benghazi during the attacks to let them know of the committees’ interest in hearing first-hand account. While the committees have asked that we make those
For many Americans, the first inkling of an anti-Nazi German resistance movement came in the movie Valkyrie, starring Tom Cruise. The 2008 movie dramatized the German underground conspiracy headed by Count Claus von Stauffenberg to assassinate Hitler on July 20, 1944. This star-crossed plot was not only a colossal failure, it was also the anti-Nazi German resistance’s last gasp. In its aftermath, Hitler executed hundreds, if not thousands, of anti-Nazi Germans. What is less well known--what is not taught to us--is that there was much more to this anti-Nazi movement. Its leaders inside military, clergy,
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on top of yet another poll today. But it´s not the result her team was hoping for. In a new Rasmussen Reports poll, Clinton tops five others as the one candidate voters don´t want to win in 2016. "Regardless of whom you would vote for, which candidate would you least like to see win the Democratic nomination in 2016? Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Martin O´Malley, Andrew Cuomo, Antonio Villaraigosa or Cory Booker?" Rasmussen asked. The results: Clinton 27 percent, Biden 24 percent.
Former President Bill Clinton made his first public comments on the New York mayor’s race, saying he and his wife Hillary Clinton were not even remotely involved in the race and declining to comment on former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal. “We are a hundred miles from that race and everyone understands that we are not going to be involved, as long as our personal friends and people who we feel obligations are involved,” he told CNN in an interview posted Tuesday. The Clintons live outside of the city, but have been drawn into the fracas of the mayor’s race as a result of their relationship with Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Clinton’s close aides, who is married to would-be mayor Anthony Weiner.
On Tuesday, Fox News Channel host Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared on Fox & Friends as a guest host where he savaged President Barack Obama’s administration for leaking details of the nature of the Al Qaeda threat to American embassies, including the phones of top terror leaders that U.S. intelligence services were monitoring. He said that these details were leaked to the press to prove spying initiatives, like the National Security Agency’s communications monitoring programs, are effective.
In late 2012, Donald E. Graham, the chairman and chief executive of The Washington Post Company, met with the paper’s publisher, Katharine Weymouth, to look at the paper’s future for the next three years. Their assessment troubled them. “We knew we could survive, but we always felt that our ownership should do more than help the paper survive,” Mr. Graham said in an interview Monday evening.With the agreement of the board, the company retained Allen & Company and had an initial round of discussions with six potential buyers.
This seemed inevitable. With all the efforts to tie the Tea Party and “right wing“ to violence committed by others, it wouldn’t be long before the Islamic radical Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev was tied to “right-wing” causes. With the slenderest of proof, The BBC goes there: One of the brothers suspected of carrying out the Boston bombings was in possession of right-wing American literature in the run-up to the attack, BBC Panorama has learnt.
The Republican Party threatened Monday to pull 2016 Republican primary debates from CNN and NBC if they do not drop plans for special programs on potential 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton—a move that could help the national party winnow the number of debates in the coming presidential election cycle. “It’s appalling to know executives at major networks like NBC and CNN who have donated to Democrats and Hillary Clinton have taken it upon themselves to be Hillary Clinton’s campaign operatives,” said Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican
It’s difficult to imagine someone more important in U.S. history than Harry Hopkins, but Americans don’t learn much more than his name, if that, in school. This means we aren’t taught that Hopkins, FDR’s top wartime advisor, ran what became known as “Roosevelt’s own personal Foreign Office” from the Lincoln Bedroom, where Hopkins lived for three-and-half-years. We aren’t taught that this former social worker in key ways controlled U.S. foreign policy by controlling the distribution of U.S. military materiel to countries at war through his supervision of the massive Lend Lease program.
In a shocking announcement late Monday, The Washington Post Co. announced that it´s selling its eponymous newspaper to Amazon.com founder and CEO Jeff Bezos for $250 million. Obviously, it´s early to say how the sale and new owner will affect the direction of the newspaper. Most new newspaper owners (ahem, Rupert Murdoch) immediately vow not to interfere with the news reporting of the paper, though sometimes they don´t keep that vow. As at many newspapers, Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt reports to the publisher rather than the editor. Publisher Katharine Weymouth
Connecticut has so many advantages that it might be hard to understand how it became one of America’s worst-performing state economies. As we know, Connecticut is located along an important commercial corridor between New York and Boston. It’s well-served by railroads and highways. Major airports are accessible. Connecticut has many charming towns, historic sights, stylish shops and nice beaches. CNN determined that of America’s 25 towns with the highest median family incomes, four are in Connecticut – New Canaan (#1), Darien (#2), Westport (#5) and Greenwich (#14).
You can always tell the depth of an event’s illegality by the measures people take to cover it up. By that measure, the conduct of President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and David Petraeus leading up to the terrorist attack that killed four Americans on 9/11 2012 must be must be so sufficiently wrongful that, if revealed, they could lead to the president’s impeachment. How else can we gauge what is apparently the most energetic coverup in modern history? We know, from several sources, that the survivors of the attack
In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu
Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes
For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.
He thought he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — but it turns out he’s “just another boring straight guy.” ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn. But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don. “I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking
Washington--As hundreds of commuters emerged from Amtrak and commuter trains at Union Station on a recent morning, an armed squad of men and women dressed in bulletproof vests made their way through the crowds. The squad was not with the Washington police department or Amtrak’s police force, but was one of the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response squads — VIPR teams for short — assigned to perform random security sweeps to prevent terrorist attacks at transportation hubs across the United States.(Snip)With little fanfare, the agency best known for airport screenings has vastly expanded its reach
A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –
In an interview for The Guardian Weekend magazine, actor Matt Damon recently weighed in with his thoughts on how President Barack Obama has handled the scandals that have engulfed his administration since the spring. Damon, a vocal supporter of the president since his 2008 campaign for national office, said that Obama is overcompensating for his lack of military background with his tough response to controversies like how the government is responding to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The actor said that Obama is allowing himself to “get bullied” and is acting as though is “manhood”
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus threatened to pull the group’s partnership with NBC and CNN for 2016 GOP presidential primary debates if the networks moved ahead with plans to air films on Hillary Clinton. “If they have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote stating that the RNC will neither partner with these networks in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates they sponsor,” Preibus said in a statement. In individual letters to CNN President Jeff Zucker and NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt,
The Pentagon has placed its elite cadre of special operations teams on full alert to launch preemptive attacks against suspected al Qaeda targets across the globe, according to reports. The American special forces teams have spent the past week waiting for U.S. military and intelligence officials to confirm the whereabouts of the terror cell plotting to attack U.S. diplomatic outposts in the Mideast and North Africa. Unnamed sources told CNN on Monday that the teams were poised to carry out the preemptive strikes, but declined to comment on where the U.S. forces were located or which potential
Oprah Winfrey on Monday said the killings of Trayvon Martin and Emmett Till are the "same thing." This transpired during an interview with The Grio that aired on NBC´s Today show. OPRAH WINFREY: It´s so easy during this time: Trayvon Martin, Trayvon Martin parallel to Emmett Till, let me just tell you. In my mind, same thing. But you can, you can get stuck in that and not allow yourself to move forward and to see how far we´ve come. Really? Martin and Till are the same thing?
