The reason FOX does so well vs the others is because they are the only thing on TV of size that isn't decidedly Liberal. The country is pretty split between a Liberal and Conservative BIAS.

MSNBC, CNN and all the Net work news from more traditional CBS, ABC and NBC are fighting for that 50% that identifies as LIBERAL and watches cable......a shrinking group of younger potential viewers makes this even tougher for them. An awful lot of young people today don't even bother with cable.

Meanwhile FOX is just about your only choice if you lean to the right........it's certainly just about all you've got on Cable. Then there is the demographic picture of Conservatives who tend to be older and more likely to be a cable or satellite subscriber....

It all adds up to FOX dominating with or without Bill.

The bottom line is, all this PC crap just took a little more of your freedom of speech away. The left will chip away until it is all gone and the U.S. is a Europe clone. What they have always wanted.

That is a funny thought.

They didn't just GET the moniker, "Clinton news network"

That one was HARD EARNED with really consistent positive spin on all things Clinton.......and lot's of consistency in negative spin on all his detractors.


Are they ATTEMPTING to be more balanced?

I don't doubt it........we can see why FOX is winning in the ratings and so can the executives that run CNN......they'd love to take a slice of that pie on the Right.


But.......it's easy to say you want to go more to the middle.......but getting there would require CNN's managers of programming to hire and promote people they disagree with politically.

Even if they were to hire more Conservative leaning personalities.......it'd probably be the Weakling Conservative to beat up on........think along the lines of Alan Combs as the weakling Liberal for Hannity to beat up nightly on FOX.

He told another woman she looked good.
He forgot some woman's name and didn't apologize for it.
He made weak blond jokes.
He is a pompous *** (in my opinion).

Is there anything else that warranted $13 million in "sexual harassment" pre-trial payouts?

O’Reilly’s head got too big for his hat, which seems to be pretty common for high paid celebrities.

He got to feeling he could get away with sexism practices that went out in the 70’s. While some here may not agree with how subordinates should be dealt with at work, respect is the new order. In my entire career as a senior administrator I never ever bullied a subordinate. And I never accepted bullying from my superiors.

There is a clause in his contract that outlines the process for firing him and he walked away with a year’s salary of about $25 million (as is being reported). I would never have paid a year’s salary to anyone I fired for just cause such as sexism and bullying staff. But, that was in his contract.

No one lost any freedom of speech or anything unless you condone that type of behavior as a freedom.

And FOX will do quite fine. Public memory and loyalty is very short lived.

Billdo settled out of court, several times, that is why he hasn't been convicted....

His act was well known at FOX and dozens of people have come forward and talked about it.....

All you have to do now is tune into OAN and the ledger report with Graham Ledger. If your cable provider doesn't have it go to Kloud TV and subcribe for $7.99 a month.

Its well worth is... Here is a great example of how Graham disembowels Obummer for all his nonsense and lies.

Plenty of Constitutionally correct talk on You Tube from Graham Ledger... over 1500 videos most of which average about 5 minutes long.

I wonder if he has a non-compete clause in the settlement. Not meaning that he couldn't work for another outlet - that would never be enforced in court, but that he couldn't start his own network.

Can not disagree more. My main exposure to Fox was O'Reilly and, sometimes the Five. Others are too far right, and consequently, somewhat predictable, re. boring. And I consider myself to be more of a traditionalist rather than right or left.
With O'Reilly gone and the changes at the Five I will no longer tune in to FNC. It will be interesting to see what happens.
