I'll take "That's a Sad Commentary on America" for 200, Alex.

It's the ratings of Fox Nooz which is a sad commentary on America. Cooper losing to Schultz shows there is still some hope.

Hope for America turning into a bunch of true-believing and ideologically pure brain-dead automatons, you mean.......Let me give you some free advice here, wd. If you find yourself in the company of people who agree with you all the time, find some new people. Your brain will flat-out rot if you don't.

In my humble opinion...Anderson Cooper should come out of the closet and stop doing all those heart wrenching pieces.

Sgt.Schultz beats CNN yet gets buried day after day by FOX.

I just dont understand how it happens....FOX lies,FOX is far rightwing,FOX is Faux news,FOX is in the pocket of the RNC.

Lets....just for shits and giggles say its all true....then how and why does FOX lead all cable news shows in the ratings? Is this phenomenon due to americans being stupid?Or are they under a magical spell of some sorts?

No need to believe everything Rusty said for "shits and giggles"... the reason to believe it is because it's TRUE.

Fox Nooz lost millions for years before catching on. Their ratings are higher because it is more widely available. MSNBC just can't afford to lose as much money as Fox did.

The plutocrats drive home their message via repetition. It works. This is why the candidate who spends the most money usually wins.

And if it wasn't for Mr. Cooper, we would be totally in the dark about Syria. O'Reilly and Schultz obviously don't give a rat's ass about it.

I've heard about what's going on in Syria... and I've never watched Anderson Cooper.

As for Soros, he invested a lot of money trying to get rid of bush, but since then not so much... at least that's what I've heard, and I didn't see anything in the article you linked to that says otherwise. Unless I missed it.

Not that I think this proves anything. Soros is fighting for what's right, while the Koch's are fighting for lower taxes on themselves and the ability to rape the environment and their workers.

The more money Soros invests the better it is for the 99 percent.

"Soros is fighting for what's right"

Only if you think that "what is right" is a much more powerful and unaccountable government, corruption, collapsing society, much higher energy prices and unemployment, a loss of Constitutional rights, election fraud, and other causes he has advocated.

He's perhaps the worst example of a plutocrat in this nation, if we are thinking of rich people using their power to damage society.

"while the Koch's are fighting for lower taxes on themselves and the ability to rape the environment and their workers."

Actually, the Koch's are fighting for lower taxes for all taxpayers... only a tiny minority of whom are rich. Your statement is so misleading as to be an outright lie.

Like the next part. Do you have any valid support for your accusations that the Koch brothers like to rape?

You went nuts supporting Scott Ritter's efforts to rape children, so it is really ironic that you bash rape here.
