Get a load of this. Based on January ratings reports showing CBS News a deep and distant third in viewership, and CNN getting slaughtered by Fox News on a regular basis (nearly three-to-one the day of the Iraqi elections), the New York Observer’s Joe Hagan boldly calls for… a merger of the two networks.
Yeah, that makes sense. About like merging Kentucky and Vanderbilt’s football programs–“Hey, if we team up, we can’t finish any lower than eleventh!”
Tellingly, neither the word “liberal” nor “bias” appear anywhere in Hagan’s interminable article. Um, Joe, did you bother at all to consider any of the root causes behind the declines of either organization? Or are you just so wrapped up in your MSM cocoon that you figured it was all a myth invented by those red-state loonies?
