    Talking Fox News ratings plummet

    http://www.calendarlive.com/tv/cl-et-channel8may08,0,33...

    A ratings downer for Fox News

    <snip>

    First, Nielsen Media Research reported that Fox News' overall prime-time lineup dropped 17% last month compared with a year ago (MSNBC grew 16% during the same period, while CNN plummeted by 38%).

    Late last week, a reliable television industry website, TVNewser.com, reported that in April, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly had his worst month in nearly five years among viewers age 25 to 54, the most coveted audience in TV news.

    Although the network still churns out ratings light-years ahead of competitors' and O'Reilly remains cable news' No. 1 host, Fox News' explosive growth appears to be, like the president's 90% approval rating in the days following Sept. 11, a relic from the first Bush term.

    ...

    "When the stock market was through the roof in the '90s, people used to sit around and watch CNBC and slap high fives and say, 'I made another hundred bucks today!' " said MSNBC host and O'Reilly foe Keith Olbermann, adding that CNBC's ratings quickly went south when the tech bubble burst.

    "I think the same psychology applies to Fox. They'll always have their hard-core audience that wants to hear, 'Everything's great! doing a great job.' " But less-partisan viewers are drifting away, Olbermann argued.

    Good. I hate fox. Well all news channels suck but I love Anderson Cooper
    I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep.

    Fox News proved itself to be a feeble news-gathering organization
    right after the tsunami struck. Here was a news network with virtually
    no overseas bureaus trying to cover a disaster in the Indian Ocean,
    and they were out of their depth.

    The tsunami proved that they were little more than a podium for
    Bush party loyalists and columnists, not a real news team.

    Most of the reporters are afraid to actually make Bush angry,
    as it could lead to official complaints...so only foreign journos
    seem up to the task.
