3. Oh, for God's sake, is this supposed to be a serious article?
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 10:56 PM by Atman
For the last decade or two, the Big Three network news ratings have declined, and their once-iron grip on public opinion has loosened, prompting this debate: Is this decline merely a sign of increasing 24-7 media availability (cable news, Internet sites) or is the liberal tilt of the networks driving conservative viewers away from these networks in favor of alternative outlets?


Of course...it's the LIBERAL SLANT of the news that is driving viewers away.


AAARRRRGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

9. Let's see him explain Faux News rapid slide
Faux News is losing viewers faster than any other network, yet he doesn't mention that.

4. A little about the author of this article


Media Transparency describes L. Brent Bozell III as "a zealot of impeccable right-wing pedigree. He is the nephew of columnist William F. Buckley and the son of L. Brent Bozell, Jr., who assisted Barry Goldwater with the writing of Conscience of a Conservative. He was the chief fund-raiser behind Pat Buchanan's unsuccessful bid for the Republican Presidential nomination in 1992.

Some credentials, huh?

5. He was on Dead Intern Joe show tonight
bitching and moaning about how rude Barbara Wawa was to the blond dipshit on that dumb the View when the blond got her thong in a twist about the morning after pill. God what an asswipe. Even if I agreed with people like this I sure as hell wouldn't want to associate with them - there'd be nothin to talk about. Anyway Scumborough (who has toned down his wingnut persona lately) disappointed me by agreeing with this piece o'shit.

8. gotta love the criterion for what constitutes 'credentials' in the repuke
circle.

So he's related to a couple other repukes, and he worked on a failed presidential bid, and somehow this qualifies him as a 'pundit'?

Gee, and all these years I thought it was actual intellectual prowess that mattered. :eyes:

7. ..nothing here surprises me. The ignorant on the right don't
want the truth - they run to Fox for their spoon fed bullshit. Also, consider the source of this article!
