1. Likely because the troglodytes who usually watch Faux

didn't watch the inauguration at all, on any channel; instead they just logged into Facebook or Free Republic to lament the election and make insane comments.

10. You are probably right

Either that or there were militia meetings they had to attend in their plot to overthrow the government. ROFL

2. It's no surprise that Fox News came in last in inauguration coverage.

The type of person who views Fox News probably would not want to see our African American president get inaugurated. If Romney had won Fox's inauguration ratings would have been through the roof.

3. I switched over from MSNBC when they began having trouble during Rachel's show

I didn't want to miss anything. But, I switched back and forth until the problem was solved. Anderson Cooper had some good coverage.

8. C-Span had the best coverage--sometimes two camera angles at the same time.

And no BABBLING. It was brilliant.

Hilarious, though, that MSNBC beat Faux...remember in early days, one never would have thought that could happen...!

14. Well, yeah....

There was no way in hell Fox's audience was going to watch that. I bet even the anchors didn't want to be there.

For some reason most CNN personalities grate on me anymore. I stuck with MSNBC. Really enjoyed Maddow.

15. I switched to CNN from MSNBC when the parade started.

By that time MSNBC was basically just being a panel show, and not following the parade.

17. C-Span by a country mile, IMHO. No lame chattering,star struck babble,or commercial breaks. Just

the events as they unfolded. You could hear people's conversations- and the exclamations of excitement- that were the hallmark of the day!
