1. That's what they want.
I'm finished with cable and network news.

2. They're all fighting for the same 5 million viewers
as the rest of the nation is ignored. It's so damn sick!

3. That made me feel better
I know I am talking to myself, but damn, what a bunch of pompous pricks on that show just now.


There are at 55 million of us (probably more) that don't agree with them.

4. I tried three times to fire off an e-mail
but I could not get the language to be civil enough. My hands are trembling. That douchebag from Money.com really got under my skin.

6. You notice how they laugh about the exit polls
and talk about how ridiculous they were, but they never explain why. Curious.

19. Of course, if this happened in another country
Exit Polls consistently showing in one direction and the Dictator having be magically "re-elected" they would be all broken up about the "Third World".

But Imperial Amerika now IS the dark heart of the Third World.

And I imagine their reaction is identical to the Ferdinand Marcos TV in the Phillipines when he stole the election of Cory Aquino.

But the Filips had more integrity and guts than the Imperial Subjects of Amerika, and they tossed their Lying Stealing Fraudulent Dictator out anyway.

7. I fired off an email to them about a month ago and got firebombed
by one of their financial analysts about how I had too much time on my hands and no way to express myself. Totally ignorant fuck. CNN is forbidden on our TVs at home.

8. Don't watch it. Not a single minute. You will feel so much better
and miss absolutely nothing.

10. I have found that to be true. Since I have stopped watching I find
I am not as upset as before. I would become so angry at CNN my blood pressure went sky high.

16. Exactly -- you miss NOTHING when you stop watching TV
Just turn it off -- go cold turkey!

People are still watching and believing the Rove memes -- and they bring the Rove b.s. to DU.

TV is brainwashing -- they lie. They don't fact check --

O.K. you might be throwing out 1/2% that ARE ethical -- why pollute your brain with the other 99 1/2% ??

9. The only news I've watched since the early morning hours of 11-3
is The Daily Show. I'm not going to support the corporate fascist whores any more. I used to email judy, wolf, matthews, etc. daily - sometimes multiple times a day. I'm not doing that anymore either. I'm not participating in online polls either. None of if made any difference - they are all still whoring for the chimp.

11. The Daily Show is worth paying the cable pig
Not much else out there other than the weather channel.

12.  CNN just said no problem with e-voting
An advisor from Cal Tech named Alverez thought it went well.

It was a success. Only a few complaints. Bullshit.


I'm going to find his e-mail and post it.

13. STOP WATCHING.
I don't mean to flame you, but it just isn't worth it.

Turn them off for good. You will be glad that you did.

15. i agree and i have a certain suspicion....
that the majority of this small pool of 5 million watchers was really made up of us progressives.

they want to play games? it's time to start the silent treatment game, then.

17. Air America Radio has 4 million listeners
and our (listening public) numbers are increasing weekly as more radio stations are added.

People ARE responding to liberal radio --

What the cable networks don't realize is that we liberal/progressives are a market -- and AAR is aggressively going after us!

20. OMG I haven't turned it on since Tuesday and was flipping through and...
I stopped for literally ONE second on CNN and heard "E-voting was a success - we give it a grade of B!"

Give me a fucking break. My cable box is going back tomorrow.
