Speaks for itself. Funny that Anderson Cooper, who started the childish “teabagging” meme in an effort to discredit the tea parties, finished dead last.

Maybe if Olbermann and Maddow stopped being water carriers for the Obama administration, they wouldn’t find themselves hemorrhaging viewers and dignity. But my guess is they’re too arrogant to get the message.

It’s all astroturfing, after all.

  1. Stray Yellar said… “until they decide to offer up some real reporting instead of their continuous stream of “opinion pieces.”

    As opposed to what… Fox Noise and their 24/7 opinion station?

    What’s with the incessant need to keep up the “Fair and Balanced” banner? Either you are fair and balanced or you are not… by leaving that banner up 24 hours a day is to prove that they are not fair and balanced. So why the continuous reminder?

    At least Olbermann does not claim to be right all the time, nor does he waste time trying to convince himself or his viewers that he is…

    As for total numbers… I don’t suppose the fact that Olbermann’s numbers have been steadily going up the last few years while all of Fox’s have been going down means nothing… huh?

    FYI: Even if Olberma’s numbers were to surpass all of Fox by himself would not mean that he was any more correct than any of Fox’s people… but his numbers going up does account that he is being seen (however slowly it is occurring) as a more credible news source (like Colbert and Stewart) than any on Fox…

  2. teabaggers…. that entire crew at the bottom of the list have attended one to many of Barney Franks COCKtail parties.

  3. Olbermann and she-man Rachel Maddoow only brought up the sexual tea-bagger because their buddy Barney Franks popped into their heads…or chin…CNN and MSNBC are really getting hardup for stories..at least ones that are honest..I guess the last honest story anyone of these told was when they sold their own family for a one.

  4. They are getting what they deserve and I hope they continue to lose viewers… until they decide to offer up some real reporting instead of their continuous stream of “opinion pieces.”

    At some point… one would think they’d get the message. Noone cares about their “opinions.”
