    The opinionated Fox News Channel is giving ground to increasingly noisy competitors

    [url]http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/opinion/ideas/bal-id.cable24dec24,0,694639.story[/url]

    Keith Olbermann, MSNBC's pugnacious but cerebral resident lefty; his colleague Chris Matthews, long an opponent of the Iraq war who was recently off the air because of illness but who remains very much in the mix; Nancy Grace, whose acerbic, finger-wagging style on Headline News is aimed primarily at miscreants and their lawyers; and, on CNBC, the manic money maven Jim Cramer, whose flailing arms and booming delivery is sheer entertainment for stock-market players who don't mind being shouted at.


    The shakeout among the main cable news networks is all the more notable for the audience losses at Fox News Channel, which has suffered a 21 percent decline in total viewers when compared to the fourth quarter of 2005. Its biggest star, Bill O'Reilly, virtually invincible for much of the Bush administration's tenure, has also lost a significant number of viewers in the past year as the administration's fortunes have waned, its Iraq policy in shambles and its midterm electoral defeats conclusive.

    more spam from the mindless who cherry pick a few paragraphs to prove a worthless point.....

    a few other points of interest from the article left out by this forum's number one spammer...

    [QUOTE]Overall, though, O'Reilly remains the king of cable, ahead of CNN's Larry King and the target of almost relentless invective from MSNBC's Olbermann, who cheerfully describes O'Reilly as "the worst person in the world."[/QUOTE]

    [QUOTE]"Fox is still No. 1 thanks to O'Reilly," said Brian Stelter, who covers the industry on his TVNewser.com blog. "Without him, it would still be very competitive between CNN and Fox. Maybe the upstarts are starting to act a little more like Fox did, when Fox was David to CNN's Goliath. But now that Fox is Goliath, MSNBC and Headline News are starting to throw stones - or pebbles, at least."[/QUOTE]


    [QUOTE]Not necessarily. Although growing, MSNBC's numbers remain mostly in the shadows of the larger channels.[/QUOTE]

    "I'd be worried if I were Fox," said Stelter about the surge by Dobbs, Olbermann, Beck and others whose numbers have been showing signs of momentum.


    "Fox did not do well in the elections," said Diedtra Henderson, a reporter in the Washington bureau of The Boston Globe and an avid election-watcher"


    Fox couldn't deal with the reality of the news, and CNN benefited because it was seen as bipartisan. CNN called races faster, while Fox anchors were arguing with guests."


    "The war is going badly and it's made people turn away from flag-waving, sloganeering and spin and it's made the audience seek out answers," Klein said. "They want insight. The audience is increasingly on to the fact that Fox is giving people the administration party line."

    The Neilsen Ratings are out there for anyone to see and grasp.
    The Fox programs are runaway leaders because they reflect
    what the American people want to see and hear on TV.

    That is why I get most of my news from the web. I only want the truth and the MSM can do a number on that...

    KO is still my favorite MSM guy. This link looks a lot like this board when I post. Just personal attacks on me.

    Typical of the republican guard. No wonder they lost 35-0.

    I find it difficult to condemn a whole site when I post only certain links from them. I never make a blanket statement and say, this site is the truth.

    I post a link.

    35-0 in the last election. I think that they had more of the truth than other media outlets.
