Not clicking a brietbart link but Im sure its all on the up and up and that the absolute meltdown on election night had no consequences at all.

Yeah, seeing that this headline comes right on the heels of a headline linking to a story on how Fox News is down more than 40% in ratings in the all-important 18-to-49 demographic, I am waiting for some brave soul to go to the link to the dead cokehead's garbage site to see how they're lying their ass off about this.

There is a competition for derp?

Or did they dominate the coveted Deliverance demographic again?

I will believe this when I hear the lamentations of Rachel Maddow.
 
2013-01-05 12:55:27 PM
If they keep this up, someday they will be mainstream.

Honey Boo-Boo's doing pretty well, too.

Uranus Is Huge!: I will believe this when I hear the lamentations of Rachel Maddow.


I thought it was supposed to be lamentations of women.

I keed; I just couldn't resist.  Love Rachel

Well their ratings were up for the year - which considering the craziness of the GOP primary - is not too surprising. It wasnt till after the election that their ratings dived. So the next few months will be pretty key.

I can't see people tuning in en masse to see political news when there are no election contests to watch.

The vast majority of people do not care about debt ceilings or other policy debates.  I would bet their ratings are going to be down semi-permanently.

I hope their ratings are down semi-permanently.  But the people I know that are die-hard Fox fans are tuning in to support their rage addiction.  The addiction needs to be fed whether there is an election or not.

Glad to see Breitbart still sticking it to the Lamestream Media.

And thats where the age range is key. If they cant woo back the younger demographics they are toast. Ok well not toast - just much less influential than they were.

They'll always be #1 in "middle-aged white men throw a tantrum if it's not on in doctor's office waiting rooms"

2013-01-05 03:09:52 PM
If they keep up with content like Karl Rove shiatting his whities on live tv, they're sure to remain dominant.
 
2013-01-05 03:10:18 PM
B-b-but Fox News is not part of the mainstream media!
 
2013-01-05 03:11:11 PM
higher ratings = more better!!

Suck it libs!
 
2013-01-05 03:11:33 PM
Excluding ABC, CBS, and NBC right subby?
 
2013-01-05 03:15:26 PM
Just remember that this in no way means that Fox news is part of the mainstream and in fact the liberals still control the media and we know this because Fox News tells us so and they are after all #1 so they must be right or so many people wouldn't watch them.
 
2013-01-05 03:16:23 PM
Competition for the eyeballs of mouth-dragging knuckle-breathers. That's a gold medal to be proud of.

Free market, baby! O'Reilly even said that viewers come to Fox to get the news from the perspective they desire.
 
2013-01-05 03:17:57 PM
Republican voters that feed off Fox News? Not so much.
 
2013-01-05 03:18:10 PM
So they're the #1 news channel in the country. Consistently. And they have if I recall, the top two programs (O'reilly & Hannity) consistently... Yet, they continually blame the "mainstream media". But...they're apparently the best and most popular media outlet so whose more mainstream than them?

Hipster FOX news confuses me :(

Given the outcome of the last election, I completely approve of whatever Fox News is doing.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
 
2013-01-05 03:27:27 PM
Hmm. Where does the right wing get its news? Fox of course. What other news do they watch? Well, probably not much of anything else except to confirm that the other outlets still haven't seen the light. On the other hand, where do moderates and left viewers go? Well, a lot go to the internet, but otherwise, MSNBC, CNN, the networks, PBS, and foreign outlets if they can get them, CBC, BBC, AJ, and a host of other sources. Some people look for different perspectives, contrasting viewpoints and actual, honest to god news instead of simply seekingg confirmation of their pre-existing bias...

2013-01-05 03:31:00 PM
It's not fair. FOX gets all the idiots while the other stations have to divvy up the remainder
 
2013-01-05 03:32:06 PM
FOX = Fawning Over Xenophobes.

Alternatively, "Favoring Old Xenophobes."

Actually, it bugs me in a grammar-nazi way when I see Fox referred to in print listings in all capital letters. Its letters do NOT represent a name, e.g., Columbia Broadcasting System. "Fox" is the name of a person. Or was, a lonnnnng time ago.

And there are a lot of idiots - in many cases, idiots are the majority of voters in red states.

Fox News crushes competition

Justin Bieber crushes competition too so he must be the best musician!

Breitbart now has a sports tab.  Did you know that liberals hate RGIII because he's a conservative and has a white girlfriend?

Flat-out lie. They don't cite anything, just link to a TV review page, and the TV review page cites studies for two shows, not the entire thing. Point-blank lying.

It's amazing. This is what propaganda looks like IRL, and it's utter shiat, because you're not supposed to know what's propaganda and what's real. I just...I feel so sorry for whoever coordinates this. It must be horrible to realize how much you suck ass at your job.
 
2013-01-05 03:45:25 PM
It's a shibboleth for them. Like Chick fil a, Red Dawn, David Mamet:

I don't have a go-to shibboleth for this purpose. I suppose that something noncomittal and sneaky, like "Are you a fan of David Mamet?," might work. Hey, you might just mean his movies and plays. Alternatively, you might mean his recent political conversion to conservatism. A member of the tribe might pick up on that last bit and say something like, "I've become a bigger fan lately."

Actually I thought the white girlfriend part would enrage some of the older and more bigoted conservatives.

This will be where I put my realization that Jack Cafferty stopped being on CNN in mid November, which sucks, because he was a crotchety old fark with no time for Fox News shills.
 
2013-01-05 04:01:51 PM
Now THERE'S a witty headline.
