    When all you watch is FOXNEWS, your mind gets so warped that even neutral news reporting looks like it is leaning heavily to the left. It does to your cerebral cortex what an inner-ear condition does to your balance. What TT has is a case of FOXNEWS brainstew.

    I watch them all, and they all tilt one way or another. Neutral is what you see when they express your opinion on everything, but CNN is no more neutral than Fox news.

    Hannity is not full of hate like Olberman and other MSNBC folks. He is passionate. There is a difference.

    Luke Russert is the one person on MSNBC who I would consider an decent journalist. He does tilt to the left like his father Tim did, but he does do actual journalistic reporting.

    I don't think Hannity is as much a narcissist as Obama. His status as the #2 rated cable news host and the #2 rated talk radio host has more to do with scheduling (Hannity follows Bill O'Reilly on Fox News and Rush Limbaugh on the radio, both #1 in their respective formats) than his talents as a television and radio host (which are very overrated). He has the basics of conservatism down, but he doesn't have the deep thought process behind conservatism like Limbaugh or Mark Levin do.

    I didn't say it was neutral, but is definitely has more programming that is closer to neutral than FoxNews does.

    The daytime news anchors at CNN aren't far behind MSNBC in the left bias. Have you heard interviews by these anchors?

    Yes, I realize now how much of a reach that was.

    Hannity thinks he is God's gift to the world; Obama thinks he is God.

    And I also agree that Hannity is not full of hate like the left-leaning reporters like someone else pointed out.

    I incorrectly lumped them all into the same basket.

    Well no duh???? You're way too biased; especially when added to the rest of the openly pro socialist, liberal media.

    CNN PANICS OVER SLUMP IN RATINGS...



    The Cable News Nightmare: CNN (and Piers Morgan) in audience crisis




    Viewers are turning off in droves, lured by brash rivals and popularity of internet news sources

    Stories aren't the only thing that high-profile studio anchors at CNN apparently know how to break. Judging by the latest TV ratings, they also seem to be uncannily successful at destroying the loyalty of viewers.
    Figures from ratings agency Nielsen show that America's most famous rolling news brand has just experienced its worst month for almost 20 years, parting company with more than 50 per cent of its audience in 12 months.
    The development follows years of unrelenting decline for the network, which pioneered 24-hour news in the 1980s, and was for years the top-rated news channel. It has in recent years suffered intense competition from Fox News and MSNBC, which both now outperform it in almost every time slot.
    The figures also raise questions about the future of Piers Morgan, hired to shake up its prime-time schedule with an hour-long weeknight interview show. He drew an average of 417,000 viewers, a fall of 50 per cent and the network's worst figure for the slot since the early 1990s. Morgan's show is largely admired by critics. But his audience is volatile, and seems to vary according to the calibre of guests. In early 2011, when he took over from octogenarian Larry King, who boasted around 600,000 viewers, Morgan said his show should be judged "by how we settle down in between six months and a year". By that measure, he's in trouble.
    May saw CNN's average audience fall to 388,000, of which a mere 113,000 are adults in the 25-54 age bracket that advertisers covet. The figures represent an exponential increase in the rate of decline for the channel, which is also undermined by the internet's rise in popularity as a breaking news source.

    Turn-offs: CNN's flop presenters
    Piers Morgan
    Hired in a blaze of publicity almost 18 months ago, the former Mirror and News of the World editor brings Fleet Street bombasity to his 9pm slot. But the show averages just 39,000 viewers in the all-important 25-54 demo.
    Erin Burnett
    "Smart, entertaining, and ahead of the news," is how CNN describes its 7pm anchor. The public must see things differently, given this respected (but perhaps monochrome) former financial journalist's prime-time show draws only 409,000 viewers – of which a woeful 46,000 belong to the 24-54 demographic that advertisers covet.
    Anderson Cooper
    Famed for his black T-shirts, perfect quiff and the live-on-air takedowns of public figures (on a slot he calls "Keeping 'em Honest!"), Mr Cooper is a cable news institution and the unofficial "face" of CNN. That hasn't stopped him managing to lose a quarter of his viewers in the past 12 months.
    Wolf Blitzer
    Bearded, bespectacled, and a fixture of CNN's line-up for more than 20 years, the ever-reliable Blitzer should be required viewing in an election year. But viewing figures for his 4-6pm Situation Room, billed as a "raw, unfiltered, and live" breaking news programme

    Did you read it? If so, then you would see that they say CNN isn't biased enough. They've played in the middle so much that today's polarization (of which you support) and their lack of understanding of the internet (no surprise there, Time Warner sucks) is making them obsolete.

    Okay...so which way should they go? More to the left, back to their roots? If they do, they would probably pass msnbc again in the ratings. I'd love to see msnbc fade away, even if it means they are replaced by CNN.

    But, in the bigger picture, yes, the polarization of our nation, which is nothing new, has risen to new heights under obummer. There is really no middle left in politics. Anyone, like John McCain, who tries to occupy the middle, finds little support. This nation is as divided as it has been since 1860. Back then, the division was mostly (not totally) regional, today it is philosophical and folks, at both ends of the spectrum, have dug their heels in. They cyphon the ever-shrinking middlers to their side, as the middlers seek to find comfort by being in a larger group. A distinct human characteristic, such as leads other-wise sensible people to jump on the lspoo bandwagon, for instance. "All my neighbors have done it..." Just another in a looooooooooooooooong list of failures for obummer, who promised to be a uniter. He is the most partisan president in history, and his libtard policies have failed miserably.

    Back to the media. Since they have to attract an audience to get ratings to attract advertisers (hmmmm, good old fashion capitalism), the networks have learned the middle has disappeared. So! choose a side and cater to it.
