I can't believe it is that old...where was I when it started?


I only became aware of it when bush stole the elections in 2000

1. imagine it as a teenager...
I wonder if it is an only child -- if I was the parents I would not want another one...

3. When Lil Kim boomed his bomb
they were crooning about how special they are. It was fucking funny. Took them ten minutes to get it on. Had to go through the 'filter' first. :rofl:

CNNIN was on it from the moment it happen.

4. i'm not sure "we" can , the same crowd that keeps Limbaugh on air
even through the drug use and other stuff are probably going to keep Fox on the air.

5. As long as millions watch it you can do nothing about it.
Just don't watch it.

8. I think it'll reach 11-12
Remember, even total victory this November still leaves the White House in control of the enemy.
They use Fox to distribute orders and propaganda to the faithful. It's a reliable mouthpiece for them and they'll want to keep it running.
Fox will be there as long as enough of the Alcoa Beret crowd tunes in to attract advertisers.

9. Assuming no laws are broken, it'll reach 11. Need to think more long term.

I bet they would even run the channel at a loss to spew propaganda to their cult.

10. Fox's ratings are the highest among the 'News' channels.
Fox will outlast MSNBC, IMO. Both channels have 'sugar-daddy' owners, but Fox makes money, I think.

There's no doubt there is an audience for Fox, Limbaugh, etc. They're not going off the air.

12. Buy it and scuttle it
That's the only way to "be sure".

13. Murdoch's not selling it.
It's probably his favorite US property. Makes money (like Fox movies, but unlike the NY Post) and feeds his need to spread right wing propaganda
