Seems like TV news cable and major networks are going the way of the horse & cart!!! Ditto for newspapers & magazines. The internet is the ticket. with Drudge Report, the leader!!! MSNBC & CNN should close up shop. I look at the MSNBC :prime time” lineup and laugh at the miserable number of viewers. Even in the c the Fox News viewer numbers are nothing to write home about. IMHO, if a bonafide “Conservative” station were to surface on Cable TV, it would knock the ball out of the park. All it has to do is simply tell the truth!!! Maybe the Glenn Beck effort might catch on!!! The American people and voters have no faith whatsoever in any mainstream media. Just watch Morning Joe & Ms. MIka, the moron, and you can gauge for yourself. The fluff and spin presented is both laughable & Pathetic from A-Z!!! Methinks TV news excepting local broadcasting is toast!!!

Fox News will start up “The Five,” an ensemble opinion show featuring revolving hosts, to replace Beck, hoping to draw a bigger list of TV advertisers.

Some of the personalities for “The Five” include: Greg Gutfeld, Juan Williams, Dana Perino, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Geraldo Rivera, Andrea Tantaros, Eric Bolling, Monica Crowley, Bob Beckel and Kimberly Guilfoyle.

Faux has changed it's format over the past year and is becoming more “lame-stream”. People are tired of BOR and Hannity is slipping. Not a good sign but still better than the others.

Seriously? Somebody watches Nancy Grace? Must be a tech glitch. I simply don’t believe those numbers.

no interest in this group

besides I have been neglecting some other home and family matters to watch Beck at 5 PM. They will no longer be neglected.

and although I am a GB fan and moral supporter, I’m not doing to pay a tax to watch GBTV

It’s because of the Casey Anthony trial. Lots of people are watching it and Nancy Grace is covering it. This is a temporary high for her till the Anthony trial is over.

Chris Matthews Hardball is behind Maddow and O’Donell?

That’s pathetic seeing as how he has been the ‘dean’ of MSNBC opinion shows.

I have been holding out hope that Comcast would clean out the toilet that MSNBC is and provide straight down the middle true news reporting, but there are no signs that they are planning such a thing.

Too bad , because as you say, a real true news reporting network would shoot straight to the top of the ratings.

"It’s because of the Casey Anthony trial. Lots of people are watching it and Nancy Grace is covering it. This is a temporary high for her till the Anthony trial is over."

Interesting though - Greta is going whole hog on the trial too and her numbers are poor. Is this reflective of the particular audiences and their interests? (I know I'm sick of the trial.)

I will start to see this as a sane country when we the media quits following these cases min by minute. I had some free time this weekend I looked at the guide i seen John Stossel show was one I was thinking great I will watch NO FUGGING Breaking news about the trial, so i try again the next night MORE NEWS ABOUT THE TRIAL. just once can they report they captured a suspect, the suspect is on trial, the suspect has been cleared or is going to jail for life thats all I need to know, well I really dont even need to know it.

Wonder how Keith Olbermann is doing on the high powered, high charging network he signed with. No numbers that I have found.

Greta is talking about it a lot right now, but Nancy Grace has been on this every day since the beginning. She annoys me but her dramatic passionate personality is very appealing to many watching and paying attn. to this trial, in my opinion. :)
