Interesting, but I'm still disturbed that most of you treat this as a college football rivalry. Woohoo!!!!! The liberals are winning!!! Take that Fox News!.



Maybe we should care more about our country than we do about our political affiliation.

I hate to break it to you, but Australia is NOT more conservative than the United States. No nation outside of the Islamic world is. Sorry, there's just nowhere for you guys to go. Liberals have tons of options, as there are PLENTY of nations more liberal than the USA.

Maybe you should direct that at the House GOP assholes that haven't even bothered to show up unless they were voting to outlaw abortion or name a farking bridge.

Or maybe we do? No one who cares about their country is going to be upset that the right wing spin machine is losing it's grip.

I'm a liberal. But due to my limited education, I don't really have tons of options. I'm stuck here. Not that I'm complaining, much. I'd probably hate living in another country anyway. Would be too much of a culture shock. With maybe the possible exception of Canada... maybe.

Yes, because this year we were so overwhelmed by liberal hyperpartisanship that every single pollster thought the liberals would sit at home on election day, cheering so hard they forgot to vote.

See? This is where you guys start to look a little unhinged. What have the House GOP majority actually accomplished in terms of legislation? They are the least productive Congress in 65 years. That's not partisan to point out. That's acknowledging reality. They couldn't even pass the farking Jobs for Veterans bill, or the Violence Against Women Act, or the Farm bill, or the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

The leadership has sunk 1.5 million dollars into defending DOMA. Of the roughly 3,000 bills they have put to a vote, how many of those were about abortion and the names of bridges? And how many laws did they actually pass? 60 something. The worst record in my lifetime.

How is pointing this out partisan? Or should no American dare to question the effectiveness of their government when their government is the one you voted for? Because that would be "partisan"? No absolutely. I'm the partisan.

If you care about the country you would obviously be keen to see the demise of Fox news.

Cutting out a tumor is what you do if you care about the patient.

I thought those articles about GOPers wanting to leave the country were hilarious. Where would they go? Any country that has the sort of policies they think they want is a third world mud-hole. And mostly full of brown people to boot.

:"you guys"? I'm not the one who voted a straight party ticket. There were a couple of Republicans on my ballot this year, but there were many more Democrats.

Like I said, you should stop treating this like a college football rivalry and fark you if you just looked at a party and voted based on that.

So you are on record as Fox news is a productive part of American life?

Also I am pretty sure your understanding of the term 'liberal' doesn't have a lot to do with what I do or think.

More than that, it's stupid to declare victory when the only measurement you've got is from the last 8 days.

The article mentions that: MSNBC has to do something that will keep increasing their audience.

But the thing is that is noticeable is that MSNBC has been winning for two weeks...normally their bump just last election night.

I can tell you why: FOX has always been about a conservative veiwpiont while claiming to be fair.

You cannot be fair and have a viewpoint.

As a result: after 20 years of holding to a point of view- that was completely void of reality- people are looking for a place to find a reliable source of information.

They won't get it from a liberal minded media.

I never took this seriously when Bill-O and Olbermann were having their ratings spats. Why should it matter to me now? I know what I like to watch. What everyone else watches is their business.

I only care to the extent that Hannity is annoyed/angered/bothered by drawing less of an audience than Maddow. That has to stick in his craw, and that happies me.

Only amongst the 18-54 year old demographic. Once you throw in the geriatric crowd, Fox News wins handily.

You obviously don't understand how the federal government works. Individuals don't really matter, it takes many people working together to get anything through either house of congress.

This. Started off a little "meh", but the past few months he's really hit his stride. He speaks much more intelligently (I think he's more comfortable on camera now), and moderates his guests and the debate excellently. Very intelligent show.

If this continues, I wonder if Fox News will go back to some Glenn Beck styled show to drum up the fear, and therefore their ratings. I doubt they'll do nothing at all, if their ratings keep sliding...
