69. Rarely do I watch the tube to get the gab. I see
Rachel on net videos. I figure many people watch Billo because of the trainwreck entertainment value or they need confirmation that there are others out there who are just as ignorant.

81. Possibly...
AFAIK there is some advertising on the web clips.

Incidentally a lot of MSNBC's content is available on the Roku box too these days, so you can watch the recorded clips on your TV rather than the computer.

I'm firewalled @ work so I will be watching this clip @ home.

I signed up for Dish Network because it was the provider with a package without faux news. They have since added Faux, so I no longer have satellite.

35. Of course!!!! That's why the ratings are so high. There aren't THAT many
crazy people in the country who'd go out of their way to view him every night. Dunkin' Donuts, owned by the Carlyle Group, probably requires teevees to be set to Fox. The Carlyle Group makes a lot of money off the wars and Fox sells them. It's in the interest of corporations to sell Fox wherever they can. Corporations don't care about people, just money.

54. I also read that only land lines are used for polling.
if that is true, than a lot of people who only use mobiles are not being contacted and that would skew the numbers.

61. I remember reading that, too. Older people (like me!) have
land lines, whereas younger people have only mobile lines. And, I'll bet, only older people would take the time answer the poll. Not me. I answer nothing. Telemarketers have burned me out. I only answer the phone when I recognize the number.

84. exactly!
Most people do not answer a number they do not recognize as well they should. Aside from pesky telemarketers there are scammers and area codes that will charge you outrageous sums of money. If you don't know the number there is a 99 percent chance it's just someone wanting your money. So never answer a number you don't recognize. Most people know this except for the very gullible and non net savvy elderly. That is why polls are a useless outdated method for gauging public opinion and polling companies truly need to change their methods in order to keep up with the times or go the way of the dodo....like the yellow pages.

And TV ratings....puleeze. With netflix and being able to watch shows on the web TV ratings are again an outdated gauge of popularity. I never watch TV. I watch Rachel and Keith and Jon Stewart on the web usually the next day sometimes waiting until the weekend watching several shows all at once while working out. Between working full time and being a mother entertainment has to be flexible to my schedule, not the other way around. I imagine it is the same for most everyone else, no? If the entertainment industry truly wants an accurate measure of viewers they need to incorporate web viewing and netflix rentals. I'm sure they'll change their methodology eventually....

79. Don't forget that Fox is included on the most basic pkg
for Direct TV and Dish Network. (Not sure about the cable companies). To get MSNBC, you have to upgrade to the next higher package level and, of course, that is more expensive.

I will go first. I'm sending it to my brainwashed cousin, my idiot uncle, and the entire staff of the Elementary School I used to work for, 85% of whom are Repukes. (I know, right? Sad, but true. These were some of the most anti-intellectual people I've ever met.)

16. I think the bigger issue is that Fox and conservatives/ republicans are
Edited on Fri Jul-23-10 04:32 AM by glowing
absolutely terrified of her. Marco Rubio has an ad against her assuming that so many people in FL know or even watch her show. She's telling the truth and offering great insight and analysis into what and who they are. She went really in-depth with her reporting on The Family.. That was what made her a real radar blip on their screen. Its what has made her their "fear". She can systematically dismantle them and their irrational talking points easily.

What's even more telling is that she, of lesser ratings, generalized the Fox news team.. I think she showed more clips of the morning team than any other on the Fox channel when she was doing the "white people fear others" segment. But Fox responded via O'Reilly.. the big dog.. and his line is that he has more viewers.. no one watches Rachel.. So, then if no one watches and he's the big man on campus, why is he spending anytime defending himself or Fox?

And with the whole ratings issue? How many more tivo, youtube, ipod/ cast rachel instead of turning the channel to MSNBC during 9pm? Liberal people are normally a little more connected to technology than the old white people who are sitting around their tv, falling asleep over their bowl of ice cream each evening.

71. Dang it all
I am an "older people" While I do like a bowl of ice cream anytime I can get one, I do not fall asleep over it. I do record Rachel every night just in case I fall asleep. (G) No really I record her in case I want to review something.
On another note I once saw an add for some sort of remote one could use to change channels on any tv found in a public place airing faux noise.
I went to the doctor a few days ago and a younger people was entering the same time as me. He had his two sons aged teen and pre-teen I guess. He said to his sons. "Well we ain't coming back here again." Son number 1 asked "Why ?" he replied "No weapons." There was a sign on the door prohibiting concealed weapons. Not being in a confrontational mood I said nothing. I just thought, good deal the last thing i want is a gunfight at the doctors office.

Just rambling my random thoughts here, thanks for listening.

carry on, carry on

17. I met Shane McMahon about 3 years ago
I told him the WWE should do a 10 minute news segment during their programming that way they could claim to be the #1 name in news
He laughed and said his dad would never go for it.
Then he stopped and said maybe he would -- I guess Shane was right on his first guess

God, I wish they had done it

85. Very true
But I think that would be so funny hearing someone like Jerry Lawler or Chris Jericho saying, "The WWE. The number 1 name in news. More people turn to the WWE for the story than any other network."

Then we'd most likely hear shill o'lielly telling us how ratings don't matter. It's a publicity stunt. Their news is biased (I'd love to hear that)
The WWE is not a serious news network (I'd love to hear that too)

18. Got to love Rachel! Wish I could afford a better cable offering.
No MSNBC. On the other hand. I get 3 Home Shopping programs, 3 Spanish(I don't speak Spanish), Faux news(over my dead body),a sports channel, don't watch that, plus 2 PBS and my town channel. Pretty meager. This is the basic offering from Comcast in my area. Terrible!

I try to catch up on Rachel and Keith the next day but I miss half of the shows. I am really not one to sit on my desk chair to watch TV.


How does Rachel keep up her 'up' personality when she has to deal with idiots all day?

83. No Msnbc
You may want to call your provider and do some violent complaining. Tell em you are going to cancel your service if they cannot or will not provide you with what you want. Tell them you will trade them 3 Spanish channels and faux for MSNBC. Tell them you can get Dish or Direct tv for less or the same amount of money. Tell them you want to talk to a supervisor. I have used this method with Dish network with some success. Getting baseball games that they tried to tell me were blacked out and getting repairs at no charge with no contract to sign. This is a very competitive business and sometimes screaming helps.

21. Go Rach!!!! This was outstanding. I was practically up off the
sofa cheering when I watched it last night. I even recorded it, and made my husband watch it. The bullying smug O'Reilly got his rear end handed to him and then some. Right wingers, particularly those at Fox, don't know how to handle intelligent people. That's why they can't handle Jon Stewart either. Frankly, having good ratings doesn't translate to quality, and I think Rachel made that one pretty clear. I hope that little piece she did goes viral. I wonder if Billo will respond. He's such a bully and loves to get the last word. Hope Rachel is prepared. She's enemy #1 for the right wingers.

26. Rachel makes an excellent point
comparative TV news ratings tell us almost nothing about the true preferences of the American people.

As for Fox, lately my blood has started to boil over. I can't be alone. I think the right would regret it greatly were they to try start a civil war. There is so much pent up rage on the left you could sell it for cheap energy.

honesty with a stick. Because, the next offensive move for Billo is to dismiss her for being a lesbian. Watch and see. And she will say, "That's right, but you still lie to the American public."

I love her. I really do. She is so great! I wish she were mine.

43. What O'Reilly does not say is how much wider The Noise Factor is
distributed. I get MSNBC because I have a BUD. When they turn off the BUD in December, I will have to go to Dish or Direct to get cable news.

Dish package incl The Noise Factor is is 39.99 per month. To get MSNBC is 54.99 per month.

Direct package 58.99 but you get both.

Cox cable, which I don't have access to, charges an upcharge for MSNBC.

So, you have two large programming providers that don't provide MSNBC on their basic. I have always wondered if that was reflected in the ratings.

48. How much does Faux blaring in various airports, doctors offices, etc. play in their ratings?
How many people really are watching as they're scurrying to their planes, retrieving their baggage or whatever? How many people in the fitness centers are really paying attention to the TV as they're running the treadmills, lifting weights or whatever? I look at it more as background noise to take your mind off your workout.

She has facts, data and journalistic integrity. Bill O the Clown, Glen Beckkk, Sean Insanity and the cast on Fuckin' Friends morning show literally just say ANYTHING and hope that at least some of it sticks. Thanks to the dumbing down of America we've seen for the past 30 years or so, some of it does stick. The fact that shows such as Sponge Bob and WWF land such high ratings is a testimony to that.

49. Why hasn't Fox lost their broadcasting license?
They've repeatedly put out bogus stories. I'm not talking about mistakes, every network makes those, but Fox has conducted out-and-out smear campaigns with lies.

They should be put on probabtion for the attack they waged on Shirley Sherrod.

80. "Fox News" is *not* a broadcast entity in the USA.
So they haven't got a "license" to lose.

The UK is a different matter though... if enough UK residents kick up a stink with OFCOM then maybe they'll look into "Fox News"'s satellite broadcast license ("Fox News" is free-to-air via satellite in NW Europe) and fine them.

50. Rachel rocks.
Just the best. I love her calm, good humor as she dismantles dickheads like O'Reilly. Just perfect.

52. M$NBCs ratings may be going further down
they hired media assassin Martin Bashir, who would be a better fit for Faux Noose or even better yet, a prison cell or padded room, but whatever. The tabloidization of the lame$tream media barrels on....as has been evident this week in particular - however hardly a 'new' phenomenon.

They DO have Rachel though...

75. Fox "News" is a joke, and all it takes is someone with
intelligence to put them in their place. Hate to tell Billo, but it ain't always about the ratings. Since when in this country do ratings equate to quality? There are an awful lot of ignorant people in this country who could care less whether they are being told the truth. They tune into Fox because it tells them what they want to hear.

86. Short version:
Bill O talks smack to cover up the fact that FOX news is once again caught lying. A selectively edited video is no mistake. You can't mistakenly edit out stuff or mistakenly edit in the wrong protest footage from years ago. FOX news should be punished and massively fined every time they knowingly lie. I cannot believe the FCC would put a fine on a station for a wardrobe malfunction or curse word and do nothing to those that manipulate, slander and lie. WTF??

93.  F.C.C. has been compromised long ago..
it started with Reagan.. and W. pretty much finished it off.. Bill Moyers talked about it extensively before the election.. unfortunately clear channel communications has gobbled up much of the airways, sort of a media Enron.. its not only Fokkks.. it is truly a vast right wing conspiracy..
