4th Annual TV News Trust Poll
PPP's annual poll on TV news finds that there's only one source more Americans trust than distrust: PBS. 52% of voters say they trust PBS to only 29% who don't trust it. The other seven outlets we polled on are all distrusted by a plurality of voters.
Just like its actual ratings, Fox News has hit a record low in the four years that we've been doing this poll. 41% of voters trust it to 46% who do not. To put those numbers into some perspective the first time we did this poll, in 2010, 49% of voters trusted it to 37% who did not. Fox has maintained most of its credibility with Republicans, dropping just from 74/15 to 70/15 over that period of time. But it's been losing what standing it had with Democrats (from 30/52 to 22/66) and independents (from 41/44 to 32/56).

PPP is a Democrat Socialist Party in-house polling operation.

Kinda like Pravda.

The most recent numbers showed Fox dropping to a twelve year low, which puts them back at their position prior to 9/11.
The collapse of Fox is also occurring at a time when their competition at MSNBC is enjoying double-digit gains. The trends have all been severely negative as far as Fox is concerned, and this new poll affirms that direction.

When MSNBC has one viewer and someone else tunes in by mistake, that represents a 100% gain.

Big deal.

Just checkout "Cable New Viewers" and you will see in every age group Fox news has more viewers than any other outlet. These numbers apply to Baire, Shep, O'Reilly, Hannity and Greta. In most cases it is at least 2 times more viewers watching Fox News.

Actually, honey, Fox "News" has almost as many viewers as the NRA has registered members. It could be a coincidence, but you clowns are nothing if not consistent. Now go away and count your money, dear.

(Reuters)- Egypt's ruling Muslim Brotherhood warns that a U.N. declaration on women's rights could destroy society by allowing a woman to travel, work and use contraception without her husband's approval and letting her control family spending.

The Islamist movement that backs President Mohamed Mursi gave 10 reasons why Muslim countries should "reject and condemn" the declaration, which the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women is racing to negotiate a consensus deal on by Friday.

The Brotherhood, whose Freedom and Justice Party propelled Mursi to power in June, posted the statement on its website, www.ikhwanweb.com , and the website of the party on Thursday.

Egypt has joined Iran, Russia and the Vatican - dubbed an "unholy alliance" by some diplomats - in threatening to derail the women's rights declaration by objecting to language on sexual, reproductive and gay rights.

The Muslim Brotherhood said the declaration would give "wives full rights to file legal complaints against husbands accusing them of rape or sexual harassment, obliging competent authorities to deal husbands punishments similar to those prescribed for raping or sexually harassing a stranger."

No. Laws can deter crime, if the law-abiding potential criminals give a shit about the law. The law prevents nothing. It defines, and sets punishment, for 'crime'.

What's your solution to crimes?
Narrow the definition of crime. Translation: Don't get caught. In a capitalist culture, that's the only 'solution', since morality equals what one can afford.

Cynical, I know.
