Fox has the most viewers.......

So why are fox news watchers call crazy? O'Riley doubles Olbermans numbers! Doesn't this say something about Fox being the better news station, dare I say, the more balanced....

Check out these numbers. They are something to see. Nielson ratings.

  • Two things spring to mind...one, it is not "news", even their purported news shows have an obvious bias. The second reason is that they call other media outlets "mainstream media" when FOX is obviously THE mainstream media, according to your numbers!

  • Ratings do not equal accurate or unbiased reporting.

  • LOL.. That's one way to look at it...OR you could look at it as the "main stream media" as we have known it is dying due to their own idiocy and bias. I just think it's funny you have the cute people talking about "faux news" when it looks like MANY more people get their news from their than the other stations. And if FOX is the one with the major bias (and not the others hahaha) then why are THEY the ones people turn to for their news reports? How can you continue to call them "entertainment" when they are the NEWS people are watching?

  • Ok the "journalist" from CNN at that tea party yesturday.I could not believe her callous rotten self.Somthing CNN won't show is how a few people at the tea party OWNED her butt afterwards.Now THAT was classic!

    As for FOX news it is far better then the alternative complete garbage and apparently ALOT of people agree.
