Thursday Links and Open Thread

  1. Tuesday’s election in Georgia was ?so important? that NBC NIGHTLY NEWS didn’t even mention it until 12 minutes into the broadcast.

  2. Awful lot of articles about Megyn Kelly’s early struggles at NBC. Some of this is to be expected given her huge contract. But, is some of this rooted in anti-FNC bias? That thought crossing my mind as I notice the nasty tone of these write-ups.

  3. When Fox News didn’t cover an Obama speech or cut away early, the haters were all complaining whining. However not this time, Hypocrisy at it finest.

    • And before the J$ brigade storms this blog in protest, ….

      I see another Spud meltdown coming to J$P.

          • I based my opinion on that he always posts MSNBC and CNN monthly ratings, but never FNC (recently anyway as I didn’t review too far back). Also many negative or “bad news” posts about FNC and very few about MSNBC and CNN.

          • He would tell you, and has repeatedly told me, CNN and MSNBC sends him their ratings directly and FOX does not. Yeah, I know. He also harbors a grudge from years ago where a rough and tumble FOX PR group did him dirt. I used to know what that was, but I also used to know the doog’s name.

          • The Fox PR folks were body-slammers from way back, but could a modicum of their dealings with Spud have been inspired by his sour puss temperament?

          • I agree. Spud is more fair than that, and also has the ability to knock it out of the park on occasion.

  4. Hugh gets 30 minutes on a Saturday Morning at like 8AM, guess they didn’t want too much Hugh..

    Notes:
    All of Fox News Program from 6 am to Midnight ranked in the top 23.

    Not showing Trump speech wasn’t smart.

    CNN highest rated show had less viewers than Fox News lowest rated.

  6. Trump in Iowa delivers for Fox last night. Too bad they can’t get him to book a rally every night. MSNBC will be back on top w/the senate health care bill tonight.

  7. Re: “Somerby: ‘Cable gong show culture at its magnificent dumbest'”: Coincidentally, a Gong Show revival premieres tonight on ABC. It’s hosted by Mike Myers Tommy Maitland.

  8. 8a.m. on a Saturday Morning and MSNBC will probably cancel Hugh and say it’s low ratings but they were trying to be fair and give conservative talk a chance, but who’s up at 8 AM on a Saturday Morning?

  9. Today’s most popular links:
    5 Melissa Francis
    4 magnificent dumbest
    3 but untrustworthy
    2 struggles at NBC
