More good news: Fox News continues ratings slide, mirroring Bush

The Official Channel of The Republican Party continues to lose viewers as the country moves to the left. Big winner is MSNBC, who is up 10%:

While Fox is still is the ratings leader in it's evening propaganda broadcasts, if it keeps bleeding 15% a month, that ain't going to last. If only CNN would get rid of its geriatric set. But one of the big winners is Lou Dobbs, who is almost pulling even with the centerpiece propaganda broadcast "The Brit Hume Show".

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

This can only spell positive things for America. I would love to see that hate mongering O'Reilly become an afliction of the past. He has taken to framing everything in such a narrow, "hate America if you don't support George W Bush" perspective that I cannot believe his program is so successful.

And all this time I thought Ann Coulter was a clone by those Nazi doctors made from one of those lumps on Hitler's scrotum chicken skin, disguised as a woman to hide his true identity. Jim

I love FOX NEWS.

I actually purchased Bill O'Reilley's new book from the site. I paid 8 dollars extra to have Bill sign it with a personal message of my choice. Total was like 40 bucks with shipping or somewhere in that area.

That's only a 15% for the year, not the month. It shows November 2006 vs November 2005. If you are on top other networks will try to imitate you so you won't be the top dog all the time. It's still nice to see that FOX NEWS is killing everybody in the ratings.
