Fox News. Still Number One


Public Policy Polling found in January that 49 percent of those surveyed trusted Fox News. In contrast, only 39 percent trusted CNN. Next came NBC, including its sister network MSNBC, with 35 percent. Least trusted were CBS with 32 percent and ABC with 31 percent.

That trust shows up in ratings and profits. While competitors have been laying off employees, Fox has been expanding.

Among cable networks, top-rated Fox News drew an average of 2.4 million viewers in prime time between Jan. 26 and Feb. 22, according to Nielsen Media Research. CNN was in second place with 1.2 million viewers; MSNBC posted an average of only 949,000 viewers.

These other networks have been pimping for this administration. Now his ineptness has let the unemployment run to 17% in some places. Where do you think these guys being let go will find work? When do you suppose they will finally admit that Fox had it right along?

Liberalproverbs18:2, Sark has you pegged. However, I think you should chant La La La La La rather than duh.

You do not believe polls unless they show your side ahead. You do not believe ratings. However, you believe anything the man-child Messiah Obama and his evil minions Pelosi and Reid say.

Fox has plenty of left wing radicals on the network, such as Combs and Bekel. Those two should have rubber rooms adjoining yours.

For those who care about the whole story, you may want to read the full results of the Public Policy Polling findings: http://publicpolicypolling.blogspot.com/2010/01/fox-leads-for-trust.html

When reading the full context, what we find is that a majority of Independents trust none of the top five news outlets (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX News and CNN). A majority of Democrats trust all the non-FOX outlets while 30% of them trust FOX. And a whopping 74% of Republicans trust FOX, with no more than 23% of GOPers trusting any other news source.

Once one recognizes the extremely skewed pro-FOX/anti-mainstream media opinion of most Republicans, the overall "trust" findings make a lot more sense.

PPP offers its own interpretation of the results this way: "These numbers suggest quite a shift in what Americans want from their news. A generation ago Walter Cronkite was the most trusted man in the country because of his neutrality. Now people trust FOX the most precisely because of its lack of neutrality. It says a lot about where journalism is headed."

As far as ratings go, interpretation of the prime time numbers can vary tremendously. What it says to me is that of those persons who feel compelled to watch news-based entertainment programming instead of network sports, sitcoms, dramas and reality shows between 8 and 11, FOX News is the outlet of choice.

If you apply the findings of the PPP to the ratings, it paints an even clearer picture...If Democrats trust four voices and Republicans trust only one, an even distribution of patronage among all trusted outlets will obviously result in a watering down of the individual non-FOX numbers and a bolstering of those for FOX.

The political parties then, were much closer together then.
Cronkite is/was a huge liberal. He slanted the news to his left-wing ideology. Americans were in fact more trusting then. Cronkite would be the anchor for Air America if he were around the media today.

Sark, your link (from Fox News) says it all. Notice both sides got their say.

Liberal POV said...

Sark

Basic human rights remain the same war or no war American or non American.

This basic human rights includes a right to basic health care.

Why do you conservatives what a police state similar to Nazi Germany or Sadam's Iraq?

The Nazis considered the Jews subhuman similar to how you consider terrorist SUSPECTS.
How does inhumane treatment sometimes against innocent people help our cause?

Sark were you born in America because you don't seem to have American values of justice?

guy faulkes said...

Does anyone other than me find the logic of condemning regimes such as the Nazi's under Hitler and Iraq under Husein as repugnant and inhuman while at the same time advocating enemy combatants that commit war crimes such as Hitler, Husein, and Bin Laden have the same rights as the citizens of the United States idiotic?

Should they not be tried under military jurisdiction? Should they not be interrogated to stop further terrorists acts?

Apparently not if you are a supporter of terrorists, pedophiles and a traitor.

What does Liberalproverbs18:2's post have to do with Fox News? He has no argument with which to debate so he once again attempts to hijack the thread.

Do I get a prize for the longest single question posted to date?

Liberal POV said...

Guy

Why do you have so much trouble understanding if you condemn human rights abuse by regimes such as the Nazi's under Hitler and Iraq under Hussein as repugnant and inhuman you also have to condemn it when its done by the Cheney regime? The acts of human rights abuse don't change because you dislike those abused.
Now you cans say Cheney's abuse wasn't as bad as Sadam's, is that the line in the sand for all future treatment of fellow humans? It's not torture if you leave with your head or without a bullet to the brain?

Guy, do you really believe all Americans that disagree with you on torturing fellow human being are traitors? Do you believe all Americans that believe in the rule of law and no one should should be held in prison without a trial to determent guilt or innocences are traitors?

Do you post such lies because you can't present an argument to defend your support of human rights abuse?

What do you say to the millions who still need and support ACORN, an organization to give voice to the poorest in America after all of the negitive press by the did honest attack of edited propaganda jouralism and ACORN was vindicated.

"A "new McCarthyism" is seen in the manner in which guilt by association has been pursued by the likes of Glenn Beck and "mainstream" GOP leadership (if there is such a thing)."

"Brooklyn district attorney announced the local ACORN office there hadn't engaged in any criminal conduct -- despite the hyperventilating by Breitbart and on Fox News. And in fact, a law enforcement source told the New York Daily News, the hidden-camera tapes James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles made of themselves posing as a prostitute and her boyfriend were "edited to meet their agenda."

Anonymous If Fox is just entertainment, why is Obama going on it tonight, huh?

guy faulkes said...

No, not all Americans that disagree with me are traitors. As a matter of fact, you are about the only traitor with which I have ever had correspondence.

I have little to say to the contemptible people that participated in the voter fraud perpetrated by ACORN.

If any of these people registered by ACORN are legitimate, then that would be a good thing. However it is not indicative of ACORN's methods or ideology. It is analogous to a blind hog finding an (wait for it) ..... acorn.

Do you actually have the gall to compare Cheney's actions to the war crimes of Hitler, Husein, or Bin Laden? If so you are indeed an idiot.

As you do not believe what your own eyes see, you are hopeless.

However, you can address the questions about your education and your support for pedophiles (denial of documented videos taken in multiple locations that resulted in ACORN employees being fired will not cut it).

Did you not have any formal education? Not even high school? Maybe you have not complete school as some people do not by their early twenties. If you have not, do not be ashamed. One learns more out of school than he does in it. I should say most people do. You apparently are incapable of learning. In any case, you brought up the issue so you owe me the answer.

Again, show me where I have lied. You have been unable to do so. The most you can do is point to disagreements.

Are you ever going to quit chanting La La La La La?

The only difference between Cheney and Sadam was numbers and with more cheerleaders like you Cheney could have achieved equal villain status.

Dick Cheney nor Sadam made the world a safer place.

What do you consider the aceptable number of war crimes a person like Dick Cheney should be allowed? Remember Dick Cheney sent low ranking soldiers both men and women to prison as scape goats for his war crimes.

Is Bin Ladin and American resident or in an American Prison?

Mike D try to understand Americans are not the only human being on earth entitled to basic human rights. Most developed nations around the world understand this obligation of basic human rights.
The worlds worst criminals in our custody are entitled to humain treatment, food, water and medical treatment.

The Acorn workers negatively portrayed in the heavily edited fictional video may go after O'Keeth and Fox News in personal law suits.

Why would you support such misinformation and non objective journalism?

You know the criminal James O'Keefe went to multiple ACORN Offices across the country. Two of the Acorn offices called the police on him. O'Keefe was not out to do an objective story but to fictionalize a negative story against ACORN and FOX and conservative think tanks were lined up to hype the story when it broke. The corporate media including The New YorK Time throw journalism ethic to the wind and went with the story.

Why would you support a return the era of McCarthyism? Freedom ? You say you want to live in a free society? How do you have a free society supporting such garbage?
Did you really study history at a university level?

Mike D. said...

Liberal POV,

"Criminal"?

Has O'Keefe been convicted of something?

guy faulkes said...

Why would you support a return the era of McCarthyism? I do not. Why do you want to live under Marxism?

Freedom? Yes I support freedom and the free market system. Why don't you?

You say you want to live in a free society? I just answered that. You are now reduced to repeating yourself in the same thread.

How do you have a free society supporting such garbage? I do not support any of your policies, so therefore I do not support garbage. For the third time in one post I support freedom by advocating the policies of Reagan and the free market system.

Did you really study history at a university level? Yes. As you did not. this might explain why your world view is so incorrect.

Why would you support such misinformation and non objective journalism? It was not misinformation or non objective journalism. It resulted in the firing of ACORN employees and criminal charges being file. As you have shown, the ACORN protective association of the Obama administration manged to have some of them dismissed before they could be brought to trial. This is where bias is indicated.

Now for the next question for you that is not going away, so you should stop running.

Why do you support pedophiles abusing underage illegal alien (undocumented worker) girls in houses of prostitution? Do you not care that they are in danger of venereal disease, aids, and mental trauma?

It is interesting that, in this thread which concerns itself with media accuracy and bias, that as you criticize FoxNews for "Sensationalism, Fear and Hate", your own posted link to an article is to the website of Areola Huffington, a woman whose every word drips with some of the most vile hatred and intolerance I have ever seen expressed.

"For the third time in one post I support freedom by advocating the policies of Reagan and the free market system."

You conservatives sure like to be groupies of Hollywood movie stars. Reagan was a flat earthier as you are and knew little of the world.

Reagan's IQ was estimated to be 105 but he could read the TelePrompTer with the script of the nations wealthiest streaming across.

Reagan sold weapons to Iran, started a secret war by paying drug dealers and gangs in Central America.

Reagan declared ketchup a vegetable in the school lunch program.
Much of today's problems can be traced back to failed Reagan policies.
Reagan allowed the Junk Bond era where productive American manufacturing businesses were bought to steal worker's pension funds then ship factories to Mexico.

Lets don't forget Regan brought such people as Donald Rumsfelt and Dick Cheney into government.

After losing 250 Marines in Lebanon Reagan cut an ran to Granada to kick the ass of a country eight miles long and one mile wide. That was great PR and America had their first victory sense World War II.

"You support an organization that tried to help create houses of prostitution that were to use underage illegal alien girls."

I believe that was a conservative Republican that said on his video that he wanted to create houses of prostitution that were to use underage illegal alien girls."

We don't know what the ACORN women were responding to because the video was edited to give a false view of ACORN.

The courts confirmed the dishonesty of James O'Keele and he is now under house arrest until his trial.
