    Here's your chance to let the media know where the people stand on our faith in God, as a nation. NBC is taking a poll on "In God We Trust" to stay on our American currency. Please send this to everyone you know so they can vote on this important subject.
    Please do it right away, before NBC takes this off the web page.
    MSNBC poll is still open so you can vote.

    I think the people have already let MSNBC know where we stand, by tuning out Kieth Oberman and his constant anti-Bush rants.

    The best result would be if Oberman MSNBC put up a poll AND NOBODY VOTED! :lol:

    Cable News Nielsen TV Ratings for Tuesday, June 10, 2008

    June 2008 Nielson ratings.

    8PM - P2+ (25-54)
    FOX The O’Reilly Factor- 2,592,000 viewers (582,000)
    CNN Election Center– 712,000 viewers (227,000)
    MSNBC Countdown w/ Olbermann – 1,192,000 viewers (368,000)
    CNBC Your Money Your Vote- 300,000 viewers (65,000)

    MSNBC + CNBC + CNN = less combined viewers than Fox

    I'm sure MSNBC, the official Obama campaign headquarters, is rooting for "yes" votes, led by their resident left wing nut job Keith Olbermann.

    In a world where most of the American mainstream media slants to the left, the NBC network is off the charts. They are despicable!

    It already has for me. The only radio show I used to listen to on NBC {MSNBC} was "Scarbourough Country", but the ratings for the network were so low on Satellite radio that the entire channel was dumped....

    Comedy show? :confused:

    Got to disagree pb. Fox does slant to the right, but at least there is some semblance of balance and fairness as compared to MSNBC.

    Example:

    O'Reilly will put left wing opposing views on his show all the time and fight it out. When did you ever see Olbermann put an opposing view on his dopey show?

    I just voted to keep it.

    I personally do not really care if it is on there or not, I would however like it to stay for historical reasons.

    Fox News is truly a great news channel. Look at how it wipes the floor with other news channels.

    I'm sorry I don't consider it a reliable news source . To me its kind of like those Hollywood shows that give you all the gossip of Tom Cruise and Angelina Jolies baby except its cleverly disguised as news

    What is the difference between Fox and the other US channels? {NBC, CBS etc}

    Are you accusing Fox of broadcasting fake news? Is there some example of mis-reporting by Fox?

    Tom Angelina? Fox broadcasts news about the wars in Georgia Iraq Afganistan, Hurricane Katrina, politics, the economy, world events, the olympics, the environment etc etc. Hardly the same as Hollywood news.

    Wouldn't that be like me watching 30 min of Canadian Air Farce on CBC and then judging the network to be only a comedy channel?

    It's a news channel with a conservative leaning - although they do, more often than not, have opposing viewpoints when covering controversial issues.

    If you watch the news channels, listen to the anchors and newsmen, you can see the difference in the reporting. A great example is Dan Rather slandering the president with his unbacked allegations several years back, which did ultimately cost him his job.
