Well....

2. Fox News is still #1 in viewship.
ONLY on cable, which is a very small market, less than 3 million total for the prime time news slot. On the November 10 ratings CNN, with some 777,000 viewers, including their sister channel, both of which are right leaning, beat out FNN by some 50,000 viewers.

During prime time, CBS network, always the third place finisher, not only out-draws Fox, it out-draws all cable news channels (there are six of them) combined. Of course Fox has no network news presence the same as CBS has no presence on cable.

While Fox can and does claim it's number one, it's in a marginal (small) market and your claim it's number one is therefore, a gross misrepresentation and distortion, something Fox is noted for doing.

FWIW: Cable news total viewership declined by 15% on one measuring standard, 11% on the other, while network lost 3%, mainly to the web.

No one needs to register with topix JUST because it ticks you off Dville. Remember that. Choose your battles, you're wasting breath. I mean, how many times have you said it already? Good grief. You're the TAX man, not the TOPIX ruler. Remember that, too.

Wow
You all have been busy and high spirited.

We need to have the 2013 Economic & Investment Summit. at Brasstown Valley Resort.

Synergy can fly in on one of the corporate jets - if he was good he got free use of the corporate jets as part if the golden parachute.(Relax - just kidding).

We can each get a suite and bring our wives and/or our Significant Others,(there aren't hookers at that bar).

We'll golf, have great meals, sleep in, and watch the movie "Wall Street", over and over.

Synergy and Zoltar will provide Power Point presentations.

I'll arrange a cigar maker from Tobacco Road in Miami come up to present a demonstration of hand-rolling cigars, and explain the investment opportunities to be had when Cuba opens again.

Later we'll have our cigars and fine bourbon by the roaring fire and watch NFL Replays on the sports bar TV, while we tell each other how hard we have it.

It'll be great - and best of all - think "deductibility".

Hope the wife buys my cover story. She says she's a "Trophy Wife", who was misled, and she has been a bit cranky since learning the Maserati was rented that night.

Fox News' secret is that the majority of their viewers are in the "65 and older" demographic.

synergy,i'd like to respond to some post(s)you made,or at least i think it was you.but i can't find them right now and am not going to spend half the day looking.please forgive and correct me if i misquote or attribute something to you that someone else said.i believe that you said that you were pro-choice and i also think i remember you saying that the republicans would not have you because you were not a homophobe.for some reason this all reminds me of something that i've observed but been unable to put into words for some time.it is about this dem.vs.rep.,right vs. left,liberal vs. conserative thing.it appears to me that some sort of phenomenon seems to take place after each election.if the republicans lose an election,then they seem to conclude that they lost because their candidate was not conserative enough and want to push their agenda further to the right.an equally disturbing phenomenon seems to occur when democrats 'win' an election,they seem to conclude that this gives them some sort of mandate to move more to the left.so the gap widens,the chasm deepens,and voters are forced to comprimise their real beliefs.just a thought.

Sounds like fun. I'll bring diamonds to hand out as door prizes.:)))(I was given a corporate jet as a gift when I retired. All are welcome aboard.)

I understand what you are saying. Just from observation, it seems that people lean mostly toward the middle, however, I, too, hear people complain that the republicans aren't being conservative enough. I guess maybe that is where the Tea Party comes in. I'm not sure about that. I don't know much about the Tea Party except the left hates them. Our present administration campaigned the first time on leading from the middle and that never happened. IMO, this administration is extreme left and has been from the beginning. Currently, this country is heading about as left as it can go. That's just the way it is. Obama won and those of us who don't care for his politics will just have to live with it.
I DID state that I am pro choice. Personally, I'm NOT pro abortion, but I AM pro choice. If someone wants to have an abortion, it's totally up to her.

If I forgot to invite you I am sorry and ashamed.

Your presence is not only requested - it's required to make the event all that it could be.

I was typing when confronted with a hot breakfast plate and hurriedly finished typing on the 'Ol iPhone. forgetting to specifically include you on the list.

Please forgive the oversight and accept a fine Cuban seed cigar when we hold our conference as compensation for my unforgivable oversight.

You specifically, and all generically are who post on TOPIX are, of course, invited.

Looking forward to it - I hope it's at least a G-550 - only the best for your friends !

I insist we let Jeb fly that thing also, his invitation was lost in the mail.

Great idea on the door prizes. I was afraid you'd bring some of those pens and canvas totes they had out at the AHCA conventions. Sorry for doubting you.

Ohhhhhh nooooooo. No canvas bags for this crew! Speaking of crew, Jeb will most definitely be the Captain. How about that, Jeb? The G550 is a corporate pilot's dream. You can do it, right?
