Good News... Again

Aug 20th, 2011

The ratings for some of the most dishonest right wing propagandists continue to show evidence of freefall. I noted last month what is arguably the under-reported story of the year, that Fox News' ratings are in a devastating decline. It gets better. A lot better.

From Business Insider:

"The just-released Arbitron report reveals that a lot less people are listening to right-wing talk radio.

With a lull in ratings since November, Rush Limbaugh had a 3.0 share of listeners for his radio time slot, which is a 33% slide from October and from last April, reports Crain's Business.

Meanwhile, The Sean Hannity Show was reported to be down 28% from its peak numbers in the fall."

This does beg a few questions. Where is the shake-up? You know? Where is the evidence that they have been approached by management and are attempting to retool their programs for better market share?

There is none. And, you shouldn't expect any. That is because these are not pundits. They are craven corporatist activists whose masters are willing to lose money so that they might keep dis-informing the public.

Are you ready to fight for the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine yet?

  1. Heh heh. Thank you so much. This made my day. If the electoral vote count is accurate, we'll have the next four years to get the Fairness Doctrine back. The old arguments for its elimination will be gone but not forgotten, as the improved governing keeps front and center in the public's mind, the ugly images of 'the bad old days.' Then again, perhaps the 'free market' has done its job and shown the truth about those who wanted FD's elimination, anyway.
