The primary news source for males under 35 is "The Daily Show", an admittedly fake, and biased news show. As Goebbell's knew, he who control's the message, controls the narrative.
I think they need to look at their numbers again.
This comparing apples to oranges. His show is a comedy show on Comedy Central. His ratings should be compared to those of Saturday Night Live.
Sort of bogus results comparing an average of many shows to one show.
>> Fox News prime time and day time line up average
They had to average prime time and day time? Most Fox News viewers are at WORK during the day. We’re earning the money so the Daily Show viewers can steal/tax it from us.
...and we wonder why this nation is in the shape it’s in.
Bunch o’ idiots voting.
I’ve written on other ratings thread like this that FOX should put RedEye head-to-head with these late night talk/fake news channel line ups
I’d rather watch RedEye than Leno, Letterman or Stewart - for them to stick it at 3am is stupid - IMHO
RedEye can wrestle with the big boy network channels
(Guess Mother Fox won’t let them near the chicken coops)
and MSNBC and CNN viewers?
Unfortunately, it is a “Big. Deal.”.
Ask 100 people who said “I can see Russia from my house!”, and 99 will answer Sarah Palin, not Tina Fey.
All is not lost. First, these younger men are indeed watching political commentary/entertainment. When they compare a source of political commentary to others, eventually, they will have a stark contrast. Second, it is academic from this point as to how many of these men will turn away from the Daily Show.
The way this thing was phrased is just weirder than weird.
The Daily show is an entertainment type of thing.
Fox news is a cable show. Stewart is on a network show.
And as someone said upthread, why not compare Stewart’s ratings to CNN or better, MSNBC.
It’s obvious they want the viewer to deduce something from this silly headline when all that should be deduced is that journalists today are a joke to the profession.
Good catch i was trying to figure out how they fudged the numbers..
What a crock.
But I hope Fox is figuring out they are losing viewers due to their caving to the lefties accusations. They were flying high until they joined the leftist media culture.
As far as Stewart. Dummies like Dumb shows. It feeds their stupidity.
Who is John Stuart?
Most of those 99 won't even leave their Mommie's basements on election day.
Like it or nor not BOR does beat him.What a lying headline.
As a general rule, their commentators have their heads where the
Sun don't shine, and I really gave up on them when they
interrupted a discussion of a breaking story to have a
newsbreak alert to say that the story they interrupted had occurred.
Don't need it any more, even as background noise.
And Stewart's a smarmy, holier than thou lib. His comedy doesn't
appeal to me. He could be a talking head on FNC, for all I care.
