    To MSNBC, everything is politics, so they suppress any part of a story that does not fit their ideology. CNN's reporting is just plain stupid, so channel-flippers end up at Fox News.

    If you like politics mixed with your news, you also end up at Fox News, because they are evenly divided between conservatives, liberals, and libertarians.

    Faux News is *not* evenly divided and makes no secret of their slant. They have their token "liberals" but they are only there to be smooshed.

    Spin that record somewhere else. Fox are as bad as MSNBC. It's why I watch neither. Fox have just done a better job at playing to people to stupid to turn it off. I have no use for either one of them. They are both sensatiionalistic tabloid garbage. Hell, Fox was founded on tabloid reporting by the king of tabloids. Neither could give you an unbiased recount of any event that occurs throughout the day. If lightening were to strike in Kansas somewhere and set a building on fire Fox would ask Ann Coulter her opinion on it and MSNBC would ask Micheal Moore. All the while I'd be wondering if anyone was in the damned building until I turned it to reuters the AP or hell even the BBC.

    MSNBC has built viewer-ship due to partisan coverage with a progressive liberal bent.

    When they temporarily joined the rest of the media in the "Boston Manhunt Coverage" the far left...left.

    MSNBC viewers are those least likely to be able to afford the products that sponsor their broadcasts. Capitalist should avoid supporting their socialistic positions.

    Say what you will. The Hate Hate Hate may have lost them ratings but their relentless Hate Speak got Obama re-elected. The Majority of American VOTERS proved that we have deteriorated into a Far Far Left Country when they re-elected Obama. Rathings don't matter, Elections do.

    @BossTweed - Hate Hate Hate? Does it not seem like the statement "MSNBC sucks and all those who work for them suck at life" is just oozing hatred towards MSNBC? Just sayin'. Why so partisan? Moving a little left is deterioration? What about moving too far right? I don't see balanced "reporting" (if that's what they insist on calling it) from either Fox News or MSNBC.

    @Denizen_Kate Actually if you watch Fox with the proper perspective they are much more fair and balanced than the other networks. What you have to do is learn to distinguish between news and opinion based segments. If you watch a news segment the reporting is facts. If statements from one side is given statements from the other side is also given. If you watch the opinion segments you get exactly that, opinion, and it is not represented as news. On the other hand NBC has always represented opinion as fact. Take Tim Russert as an example. He was the Rush Limbaugh of the democratic party. Was he ever represented as such? No, he was introduced as a journalist and his opinion was represented as fact. Just another example of media indoctrination. Most people believe anything they see on TV and when Tim Russert a "Respected Journalist" tells them what they should believe of course it must be true.

    @nomocrap - "... the proper perspective ... " being what, exactly? A conservative view of all things political? Sorry, I don't go to Fox (or CNN or MSNBC) for actual news. And I always found Russert to be much easier to listen to than Rush, who always seems to go back and forth between bombastic assertions and whiny complaints, IMO. That is, when he isn't cherry-picking someone else' words to spin them into whatever point he wants to make.

    @Smduf I am currently sitting in my living room which really has no TV in it and hasn't for about a month. My flat screen stopped working and I am opting out of the planned obsolescence and conspicuous consumer game. Even this computer was given to me because it had no HDD so I hooked up a seagate external HDD and loaded linux on it for free. Besides it's all propaganda and brainwashing anyway.

    @GuyFawkes Why? Because I would rather read a book than mindlessly staring at the product of the greatest propaganda machine in history? I would be willing to bet you couldn't run a program from a command terminal to save your life much less compile packages from scratch. I bet you're a wizard with that remote control though aren't you?

    MSNBC lost viewers because they intentionally try to mislead their viewers. MSNBC lost viewers because they are the radically left news network among a plethora of other networks that aren't quite as far left as they are.

    But who cares about MSNBC. No one is watching it. What I found interesting was the flip flop of Fox and CNN during live coverage of a major event such as the Boston Bombing, 9/11, Katrina, etc.

    As the only source of national news on TV that isn't biased to the Left, they routinely beat the pants off of CNN and MSNBC under typical circumstances but during live coverage of major events, a lot of people who wouldn't normally watch cable news networks have turned to CNN. That didn't happen this time. It seems that CNN is losing even the low-information viewers that have given them such a huge ratings boost during live coverage of catastrophes, tragedies, and acts of barbarity.

    I couldn't stop laughing as I was reading this. So much funny stuff. Did they actually quote Nurse Focker from Colorado? LOL! Did you see that quote of his/hers? Hilarious! And MSDNC is near death. The more it cozies up to Muslim radicals, the more people it will lose. Love it!

    When there's a national tragedy like this MSNBC viewers temporarily become Americans and turn to another channel. This effect has been know to last for hours or even days.

    MSNBC is at a disadvantage whenever situations occur which "pull America together".
    There constant Hate for the vast majority of America Spew is a hard sell when Americans are pullling together. Yes there ratings plummeted but they don't care. And, obviously neither do their advertisers. Puzzling as to why Ad money is spent on the handful of Occupy trash who are MSNBC's most loyal viewers. Companies should look into that freakish waste of their hard earned Advertising $$$.

    Companies that can afford to buy air time can also afford to study the demographics. I think we can assume that MSNBC's sponsors spend money on that channel for good reason.

    it doesn't help your ratings Any when one of your anchors goes on a communist rant about children don't really belong to the parents only they belong to the community...

    it doesn't really help your ratings much when one of your anchors looks into the camera and challenges a presidential candidates son to a fist fight while he's actually on the air..

    ... and it certainly doesn't help your ratings at all when one of your lesbian anchors pretends she's excited about a Democrat congressman's photo of a penis, presumably his own.

    MSNBC lost me many years ago. All they do is complain about Fox news, so I switched to Fox news to see what kind of bs I can find. All I found was less BS.

    I never watch MSNBC...Their socialist ideals are very radical.
    Larry Oh Donnell openly admitted to loving socialism and it is his goal to have it here.
    I cant stand those anti American types!!!

    Probably because of idiotic statements from the likes of Chris Matthews and that idiot from England. Even the left knows better than to join in with their dumb-as-a-post rants.

    It's like an Elementary math problem. If Jimmy has 100,000 viewers and loses half of them because he is a turd, what is Jimmy the equivalent of? Answer: a local newspaper. BSNBC only exists because the kingpins of the left i.e. George Soros, Warren Buffet, and the likes funnel enough money to keep it treading water. The left can scream about how Fox's liberals are somehow straw liberals or some kind of political whores working for the highest bidder. The reality is that the Liberals 'working' for Fox News actually have credentials. Like Bob Bekel said, "he was working Union lines while Jon Stewart was crapping diapers". Rarely do I ever agree with the man, but he holds his ground while three conservatives a libertarian and a new age liberal tear into him. Kinda different than MSNBC walking out some stuttering swamp donkey Conservative and throwing three rabid Liberals on him/her.

    Msnbc is probably the most bias crap calling themselves a news network. They lost their viewers way before this. Only people who believe everything Obama is gospel watch this program. With that said I have lost faith in all the major news networks. CNN and fox are jokes too but msnbc is just the worst.
