CNN’s 2013 Primetime Ratings Lowest in 20 Years

After his first full year running CNN, Jeff Zucker has little to be proud of. The primetime ratings of the self-proclaimed “Most trusted name in news” reached 20-year lows in 2013.

Primetime viewers averaged 568k, 183k in the all important demographic of folks aged 25 to 54. This was a sixteen percent decline in total viewers, and 18 percent in the demo.

However, to put CNN’s numbers in perspective, Fox News averaged 1.8 million viewers in primetime. MSNBC came in second at 640K. As for total day viewers, Fox again came in first averaging 1.1 million viewers. CNN edged out MSNBC 413k to 394k.

Zucker and MSNBC chief Phil Griffin must be so proud of themselves.

Continue the Push Back

Liberals Win Only If We Refuse To Fight Back

Demanding that Americans hide their religious beliefs. Banning dissenting views on the climate change scam. Slandering people with charges of the kind of racism pioneered and perfected by the Democrat party.

Those are just some highlights of the concerted campaign by the goose-stepping freaks of the left to silence us, to shut us down and leave the culture open to their domination. But the organized left is only a small cadre of sociopaths – its strength comes from the apathy and cowardice of those who won’t stand up to them. They win only when we surrender.

But we won’t surrender.

I want to make it clear that I am not calling liberals fascists. There’s a big difference. A fascist would invade Poland. A liberal would just whine about Poland being homophobic and try to get it fired. Leftists care nothing about gay people, or minorities, or women, or global warming. They care about their own power. They want a cultural war, and I say let them have it. We’re fighting for a vibrant, free culture with a multitude of religious expressions, with a plethora of ideas and a refusal to hide truth so as to not offend some vocal component of the leftist coalition. They demand a mindless, fearful conformity with everyone paying homage to the same pagan liberal idols.

Push back harder…

We wonder how these people can function…

Now we know:

MSNBC Filled With “Hateful, Racist, Anti-Semitic, Anti-Gay, Misogynistic” Hosts

You know conservative talk radio is constantly under attack. It’s too loud, it’s too noisy, the name-calling, this and that. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m going to tell you something. Conservative talk radio is tame compared to what goes on at these other outlets. Tame. You look at this MSNBC, this is one bad place. This is one ugly place. And it is connected to the National Broadcasting Company, to NBC News, and they’re proud of it. There is overlap in coverage. Sometimes you’ll see people who report for NBC on MSNBC and vice versa.

Look at MSNBC. You got Al Sharpton. Al Sharpton’s anti-semitism, certainly in the past, is unconscionable. Go ahead andLord-of-the-rings-orcs Google it. You don’t have to take my word for it. Chris Matthews is the quintessential misogynist. He’s the poster boy for misogyny. They bring this Alec Baldwin. Alec Baldwin has a long history of gay-bashing, among other things. He’s a nut. They bring in any way, and what does he do? He gay bashes so they suspend him for two weeks. Well, why did they hire him?

None of these people would be hired by the media. None of these people would work in Hollywood. None of these people would be working at all if they were conservatives saying and doing these things. Not repeatedly, but ever. Ever!

MSNBC is filled with hateful, racist, anti-semitic, anti-gay, misogynistic elements and individuals who at some time in their past or even now have shared one or all those traits. Not all them, but many of them. It is a completely disreputable broadcaster and yet it is of the left, created for the left. And that tells you a lot. (Mark Levin Show, November 18, 2013)

 

 

Mordor Up Close

Ouroboros in it’s beauty…

imagesActually, if you flip to the end of the Bible we know that when Jesus “Mr. Love” Christ comes back, he’s going to be loving with a sword in his hand, sending a whole host of souls into hell fire.

Too many people are worshiping the Jesus they created, not the Jesus who is. Christ said to love, but he also said to go and sin no more. To love someone and not share the gospel — which includes a call for a penitent heart — is not truly love. It is this world’s definition of love, which, like the orcs or Mordor, is a perversion of the real thing God created.

That is something Tolkien got so spot on with Middle Earth. The evil things are corrupted or perverted things made to mimic the light and the good. Mordor has its own yard stick by which things can be measured, but its metrics are all based on evil.

Phil Robertson did nothing wrong. He just did not shy away from the parts of accepting Christ that make people uncomfortable. He loves people so much, he is not willing to give people the fast pass to Hell by telling them they are not sinners.

He did not judge. He just held up the yard stick and a whole lot of people did not like seeing it and realizing they’ve fallen short. In Mordor, after all, falling short is measuring up and measuring up is being a hater, homophobe, and judging.

Mordor is on the march. Christians could use a few less quislings. It is only going to get worse.

Targeting those who do not agree with you…

…is not the way to promote your cause:

Having leaned on A&E to suspend their biggest star, GLAAD has now moved on to Stage Two:

“We believe the next step is to use this as an opportunity for Phil to sit down with gay families in Louisiana and learn about their lives and the values they share,” the spokesman said.

Actually, “the next step” is for you thugs to push off and stop targeting, threatening and making demands of those who happen to disagree with you. Personally, I think this would be a wonderful opportunity for the GLAAD executive board to sit down with half-a-dozen firebreathing imams and learn about their values, but, unlike the Commissars of the Bureau of Conformity Enforcement, I accord even condescending little ticks like the one above the freedom to arrange his own social calendar. Unfortunately, GLAAD has had some success with this strategy, prevailing upon, for example, the Hollywood director Brett Ratner to submit to GLAAD re-education camp until he had eaten sufficient gay crow to be formally rehabilitated with a GLAAD “Ally” award.

I’ll Bet He Does!

Obama wants a ‘House of Cards’-style D.C.

In a Tuesday meeting, President Barack Obama told Silicon Valley’s top tech execs he wished Washington worked a little more like “House of Cards,” starring ruthless Democratic Whip Frank Underwood, a.k.a. Kevin Spacey.

“I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient,” the president said, according to The Washington Post. ”This guy’s getting a lot of stuff done.”

Underwood is notorious for using back channels, threats, blackmail, media coercion and even murder for advancing his position and legislation in last season’s fictional 113th Congress, so the president has some high aspirations to live up to.

At least he’s honest (this time) about his aspirations of power…

No, Dear….

It’s because he’s an incompetent and fatuous leader who has surrounded himself with sycophantic yes-men…

Oprah Winfrey tells BBC many Americans hate Obama because he’s BLACK

Oprah Winfrey has been a prominent supporter of Barack Obama. She thinks that both he and the Office of President have been treated with contempt because of the colour of his skin.

“There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American. There’s no question about that and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s thinking it.”

You see, Oprah, that it’s easier for you liberals to pin the tale on the race donkey rather than admit he truly was never ready to be president, ever.

How Hollywood Can Capitalize on Piracy

MITReview

Julie Bush, a screen and television writer who has written for FX’s popular biker drama Sons of Anarchy, believes the industry is beginning to recognize that this pattern of behavior amounts to a valuable form of promotion. “Many showrunners and executives I know not only pirate stuff all the time but also privately endorse the idea that piracy is good for the industry, a great way to advertise, and essential to building a healthy audience,” she says. (A showrunner is the person who supervises the day-to-day production of a television series.)

Last spring, HBO executive Michael Lombardo declared online piracy of the network’s Game of Thrones a “compliment of sorts.” As the blogosphere blew up, HBO quickly backtracked on that comment. But shortly thereafter, Jeff Bewkes, the CEO of HBO’s parent company, Time Warner, declared that seeing the show so widely pirated was “better than winning an Emmy.”

“We’ve been dealing with this for 20, 30 years,” he told investors during a conference call. “People sharing [cable TV] subscriptions, running wires down the backs of apartment buildings. Our experience is that it leads to more paying ­subscribers.”

The implication was that whatever losses came from piracy were later offset by DVD sales and subscriptions to HBO. (The first season of Thrones was the best-selling television DVD of 2012 on Amazon; the third season got better ratings than any other show in HBO history besides one season of The Sopranos.) HBO Go, a streaming service available only to paying HBO subscribers, allows up to three people to sign on to the same account simultaneously. It’s ostensibly for people who share a household, but subscribers widely share passwords with friends. HBO could block that by restricting accounts to a single IP address, but it doesn’t. Clearly, the company has decided that widening exposure for its programming is better than sealing up all potential revenue leaks.

All sham, no wow.

“The Affordable Care Act is not just a website,” President Obama said at the Rose Garden today. “It’s much more.” It’s like a chamois, it’s like a towel, it’s like a sponge.

Another way of putting it is that ObamaCare isn’t just a technical failure. And it isn’t just an economically unsustainable scheme. Now it’s a rhetorical disaster too. Even by the standards of Obama speeches it was terrible. It was so bad, it was the ObamaCare website of political oratory.

Fine, blame us. After all, we called for an Obama speech. But remember that what we called for–it was right there in the subheadline–was an accounting. What he gave us was an infomercial.

James Woods on Obama: He’s the ‘gift from hell’

WashingtonTimes

t’s a safe bet there’s no love lost between Hollywood actor James Woods and President Obama — the former has taken to Twitter several times over the last few months to trash the policies and politics of the latter.

The latest came this week, in response to a report from British press that revealed the National Security Agency commonly provides Israel with intelligence data — without first stripping out private and personal information on American citizens. The Guardian in London reported the item, the latest in its coverage of document leaks from Edward Snowden.

Mr. Woods unleashed his views of the matter — and of Mr. Obama’s role in allowing the practice to occur — on Twitter.

He wrote: “Report: Data on Americans shared with Israel … Obama: the gift from hell that keeps on giving.”

This is hardly the first unfavorable rating Mr. Woods has posted on his Twitter account about Mr. Obama. In July, the actor ranted over Mr. Obama’s insertion of his personal opinion into the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin trial, characterizing it as fueling racial tensions and wondering why the president would speak his mind about the death of the 17-year-old Trayvon but not worry so much about American’s soldiers and wounded warriors.
