CNN's Campbell Brown Hits A New Low

Campbell Brown's 8pmET CNN program had just 69,000 viewers in the A25-54 demo Friday night - the program's lowest ever. In fact, it was the lowest demo viewership for CNN at 8pmET since Christmas Day 2007.

69,000 viewers? These aren’t ratings, this is a gate at a hockey game

She’s gone from "Campbell Brown: No Bias, No Bull"...to... Campbell Brown: No Viewers, No Revenue”.

Sorry, I always skip by CNN. Who is this person, and what does she do?

Stray question, but does the link beeguildnow.org work any more?

7:31 -- the Bee Guild site has been really quiet. The last time I checked, they were posting job announcements every few days -- usually for jobs outside the newspaper business.

"The Bee Guild site has been really quiet."

Quite, as in Requiem?

Unlike those wide and crazy guys at the Boston Globe!

Interesting headline on Drudge.
"ABC TURNS PROGRAMMING OVER TO OBAMA; NEWS TO BE ANCHORED FROM INSIDE WHITE HOUSE"
And we wonder why we need an independent media...

Yeah, the Bee Guild site is basically useless. It's become a no-traffic, job-posting site. They had been censoring any criticism toward the guild so maybe people stopped posting. Or, they've been neutered by Sac Bee management.

Obooma and Liberal Fascism? A clever lead to the ABC/White House Propaganda station. This ought to finally convince even the hopeless liberals that the media is totally corrupted.

YOUR TUESDAY BLOGTRUTH:
ABC jumps the shark and broadcasts "news" from the White House
"Uncontrolled presidential power is inherently totalitarian in nature" -
Anyone still having a problem with the phrase "Liberal Fascism"?

-Washington Post Admits Bias for Obama, Against McCain, Palin-
By: Phil Brennan

The Washington Post's ombudsman admitted that the paper's coverage was strongly skewed in favor of Obama, and against John McCain and Gov. Palin.
Excerpt:

And the Post's bias didn't stop with McCain. [ombudsman Howell] also admits the Post was out to get Sarah Palin.

The SACBEE opinion page informed us today that 4th grade stick figure cartoon drawer "Rex Babin is taking the day off". Glad we were informed as no one missed his elementary stick drawing and daily Conservative hit piece. (Called balance at SACBEE.)So they brought in a cut and paste political cartoon from Newsday. It was a hit on Dick Cheney. I know their teletype printer is broken, but can someone please inform them that Dick Cheney is no longer in office.

So all is well in never never land. Is was close....but they didn't miss a beat. Beware.....the fat lady is rehearsing in the corridor. She is singing something about...."turn out the lights.... the party ...".

Bill Maher rips Obama a new one!

Maher: Barack Obama obsessed with being on TV
Self-described libertarian pundit Bill Maher ripped Barack Obama during a lengthy monologue on his HBO program Friday night, accusing the president of being obsessed with appearing on TV and failing to come through on pre-election promises.

"This is not what I voted for," Maher said. “I don’t want my president to be a TV star.”
Maher criticized Obama's constant television coverage ("I get it: you love being on TV") and said the president should focus on fixing the nation's problems instead.

No shit! Maher, no shit! Buyers remorse it what you call that, smart guy.

Did the lame MSM honestly report on the LA riots? Really? Why it was just yesterday these poor lads parents were slaves.

Is LA a “sanctuary city”? Does any CA city really have the funds to waste on this sort of criminal behavior? I hope none of my tax money goes to bailout these dregs of society. What else can ACORN people do, after the great fraud election?

Re: The LA riots-
It was not a riot or an “uprising”-
It was an ACORN recruiting rally.

The American Press Mainstream Treachery-
Posted in: JB Williams
MichNews.com--
Honest unbiased reporting in the American news room has been so absent for so long that most Americans now seek information elsewhere.
Americans no longer trust the free press to be their eyes and ears, to keep them abreast of the facts needed to make intelligent decisions about daily life or politics.
Sadly, at this moment in history, even Russia has a more reliable free press than America. If Americans don't read foreign news sources, they have no clue what is going on in their own country, much less the world.

Campbell Brown is a total shmuck. How she works at all must be an affirmative action thing. There must be some sort of card-carrying liberal pledge these hags take to remain employed even though they stink at their jobs.

Perhaps people have more to do on a Friday night then listen to whiny talk show hosts, and that includes FOX news, spew their nonesense. People like Hannity, O'reilly, and Cooper just tell the people too stupid to form their own opinion what they need to think.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, and there sure are a lot of people watching those Fox News shows. The ratings are skyrocketing.
