by The Old Hippie Because You Keep Allowing The “Impossible” To Get Even Worse.


TVNewser reports that Fox News Channel had 8 of the top 10 highest rated programs on cable news during the month of January.  Leading that charge was The O'Reilly Factor, which took both the #1 (the 8PM original broadcast) and the #7 (the 11PM repeat) spots.

Below, via Nielsen Media Research, the 20 top ranked shows for January:

Full data report available here (PDF).  14 out of the 20 most popular cable news shows are on the FOX network, proven by every single study done to be outright arrogant propagandists, at best, and outright liars, at worst - Kind of says it all doesn't it?

Now do you understand the power of a corporatist controlled media?  The power to convince the masses to vote and/or support their own destruction... without angry revolt?

- Quotes of the Week from The Crisis Papers site. -

“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other.”

James Madison

“My faith in the Constitution is whole, it is complete, it is total.  I am not going to sit here and be an idle spectator to the diminution, the subversion, the destruction of the Constitution.”

Barbara Jordan,
at the Nixon Impeachment hearing,
July 25,1974

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,
It's just a goddamned piece of paper!”

George W. Bush

Not only did you “allow” him to say it...  you then “allowed” him to get away with it. . .
and you then...  (to add even further injury to his insult...)  “allowed” him to prove it.

Its pretty sad that Countdown with Keith Olbermann is # 19 on a list dominated by Fox. We don't even turn Fox on in this house.

We have fox blocked at our house. I don't want to see it even by accident as I'm flipping through the channels.

It's kind of sad that you have to get to #19 before you find a progressive news source. Larry King is really just entertainment, and Lou Dobbs is just another ranting racist.
