"I'm stuck with what the vast majority of Americans watch"
Does everyone believe this, reason being I hear this allot and I just don't buy it at all.
There are estimated 301,139,947 people in the United States (thats three hundred and one million, one hundred and thirty nine thousand, nine hundred forty seven for the wingnuts reading this).
I'll use Sunday for example because most people are home, and have time to watch television while worrying how their going to make this months house payment because they're making the same salary they did 5 years ago.
"According to Nielsen Media Research, NBC's Meet the Press with Tim Russert remained the most-watched Sunday talk show, a position it has held for nine straight years. In 2006, Meet the Press averaged roughly 3.8 million viewers, 33% more than second-place CBS's Face the Nation, with 2.8 million. ABC's This Week, which concludes the traditional roundtable format with clips from late-night comedy talk shows, averaged 2.5 million. In last place was Fox's News Sunday, with an average of 1.3 million in 2006."
301,139,947 Population of the US - 1,300,000 Fox Viewers Sunday ------------- 299.839.947 People Not Viewing Fox News Sunday (thats 299 million for you wing nuts) 150 569 974 I'll cut this in 1/2 to account for children, sick etc (thats 158 million for you wingnuts)
So 150,569,974 (thats one hundred fifty million, five hundred and sixty nine thousand, nine hundred and seventy four for the wingnuts reading this) who theoretically aren't watching Fox. This is a minority?
See thats the problem with these fanatical wingnuts they pull figures out of the air and call their statistics a "majority" when nothing could be farther from the truth. The facts remain that people who use words like "fair and balanced", "majority", "libs" and hang out and use statistics from free republic type websites, fail to understand the real world, they're not a majority, even if I go further and cut this in half again to equate 1/2 Democrat 1/2 Republican that would be 75,284,987 (seventy five million, two hundred eighty-four thousand nine hundred and eighty-seven for the wingnuts reading this) far from a majority of Americans.
It's incorrect thinking and ego stroking, perpetuated by the 1/2 truths by wingnuts (left and right) and their favoite cable noise machines is why this country is so divided. Wake up folks its not about right/left, it's about right and wrong.
