Keith Olbermann’s long march toward obscurity

by editor on December 23, 2009

ratings-graphForget everyone else. Just sit back and be cheered for the holidays by the two-year trend in cable news during the 8 p.m. (est) time slot.

In short, Fox/O’Reilly’s numbers (in red) are outrageous, MSNBC/Olbermann’s (in blue) are down and out.

I bet Olbermann really wet himself after seeing that one. Word is the folks have to mop up after him after each show. (Literally.)

KQ, If you watch MSNBC for a while, you will notice their slogan is “The Place for Politics”. That is why it is what it is, it is part of the NBCnews team, & up untill very recently, they were owned by General Electric, who have had their nose in everything Obama has been pushing. Green Jobs & the green economy, GE is involved. Obama-care & it’s “reforms”, they are involved with that as well. I don’t believe that MSNBC would still be the way it is if there was not a bigger agenda behind the networks hard left direction.

I am curious to see what happens when Comcast takes full control of MSNBC, & the rest of NBC.

What is Comcast’s agenda?

KQ, I’m guessing that a large part of their agenda might be involving what content goes out to the public. For example, you have Comcast cable, & they bring you programming, but they will be bankrolling NBC-Universal content. Anything like NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, Telemundo, or USA, they now own it at both ends, content & delivery. Keep an eye out for conflict of interest situations. By that, I mean to see if they yanking the chain of Rupert Mudoch owned channels, like FoxNews, FoxSportsChannels, & things like that. Watch to see if there is any funny buisiness in Comcast trying to gain favor through gov’t regualators during possible disputes over things like what Comcast pays for content, how it is made available, & what they charge for it. Then compare that to how Murdoch owned Direct TV is handled, & see if they are both treaed the same. I know following the FCC might seem boring, but if you are like me(& in this way, I know you are)& you believe the 1st amendment means what it says, but they hold many of the cards in terms of what we watch & listen to. Keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t abuse their power, or favor anyone for political reasons that will infringe on anybody’s rights to speak or be heard.

I read somewhere that Fox Channel (Entertainment side) is being ask to pay an exorbitant amount to play in certain areas ( I forgot the details forgive me). I find this EXTREMELY dangerous for government to do this BEHIND the scenes hoping no one would notice.

This is what I have a problem with. There is too much going it is a plan to overwhelm the system and the citizens so we are left scratching our heads when we are without freedoms. It is scary.

Obama is smiling this Christmas! Somebody’s numbers are dipping more harshly then his are…

Just think if the University of East Anglia tracked TV ratings the blue and red colors would be reversed…

If you look closely at Olbie’s numbers for the Dec. 3rd 4th segment you will see a hockey-stick like spike upward when his one viewer came back to the TV after using the toilet.
Based on this, I have extrapolated the data using “a little trick” I learned from the folks at East Anglia and I estimate that within 18 months Olbie will have 111% of the viewing audience.
