Rachel Maddow's Surge Is Fox News' Worst Ratings Nightmare

Source: Atlantic Wire

After prophesying a landslide win for Mitt Romney, Fox News has seen its ratings decline a lot more than usual since the election and Sean Hannity's viewers in particular keep disappearing, while Rachel Maddow's continue to tune in over at rival MSNBC.

The last batch of Nielsen data available before year's end shows Hannity's viewership getting chopped in half after November 6, according to the New York Daily News's Don Kaplan. Politico's Dylan Byers argues this decline simply brings Hannity back to pre-election norms. Or perhaps these vanishing viewers are just disgruntled voters who can't stomach the news cycle anymore. Kaplan, however, attributes this decline to Hannity's implied predictions:

... viewers who basked in his preelection anti-Obama rhetoric tuned him out when they were stunned to wake up on Nov. 7 and discover that the President had won a second term a scenario that Hannity had all but promised could never happen.

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and Ed Schultz who both, of course, did not predict a Romney victory have retained most of their viewership in the weeks following election night, and CNN's Anderson Cooper has lost almost none. With ratings holding strong after Obama's reelection and Maddow appearing on The Colbert Report, it appears like MSNBC is making good on president Phil Griffin's plan to bolster the channel's brand awareness.

I can only hope that the election results might alert Fox News views to the fact that they live in a bubble that is disconnected to reality.

Don't bother liberals with math and percentages. Jumbo or Slew should be by in a few minutes to post some deflection, call you a liar, then steal someone else's name for a low information low integrity posting.

Funny, you NEED to compare a youngster to your old washed up fools...

Limbaugh's unique brand of misinformation was not limited to sexist rhetoric. Throughout 2012, Limbaugh was an architect of the right-wing bubble that pushed conspiracy theories and denied reality, notably helping to create a false narrative that Mitt Romney was on the verge of winning a landslide election. As that right-wing bubble collapsed, so, too, did Limbaugh's four-year campaign of hoping - and trying to ensure - that President Obama would fail.

It is for these reasons that Media Matters recognizes Rush Limbaugh as the 2012 Misinformer of the Year. Past recipients include: Rupert Murdoch and News Corp.(2011); Sarah Palin (2010); Glenn Beck (2009); and Sean Hannity (2008)

And Al Gore the hypocrite just agreed to sell Current Tv to Al Jazeer TV Network.(aka the terrorist network). Anything for a buck. And I thought you libs were against capitalism? And since it will be considered Capital gains, he will only pay 23.8 % in taxes on this money! I bet he will get a pass in the media though!

I did give him a pass. He paid the tax rate on the books. You are so stupid. That was the point. You libs complained because he only paid capital gains rate of 15%. So I want to hear the outrage of Gore making 100 mill and only paying a measly 23.8% which is thee current tax rate. But I have not heard one complaint from the left yet. Why? Because the left does not believe it has to pay taxes fairly. Only the right has the obligation to pay more.

So, which do you "think is MORE

23.8% or 15%??

Take your time, I see you're "gifted" with a thick head.

I guess, Gore should buy a tax write off horse, huh ???

Well obviously 23.8 is more. But the point you fail to recognize or have turned a blind eye to is the fact that it is capital gains and is taxed differently like the taxes Mitt Romney paid on his earnings since he is retired and not drawing a salary. You libs complained that he made 13 million and only paid 15% because it was the rate for capital gains. Al Gore is also only going to pay the capital gains for the money he made on the sale of Current Tv. But I have not heard one complaint out of the libs as to why he should pay the new rate of 39.6%!

Get a freaking clue. And try to keep up.
