Let's see....that's a 'study' by MSN? Yeah, that's reputable.

But then I guess more and more like getting dumber. As of yesterday here are the viewership data from TV Newser for Total (all age groups)...(viewers in Millions)

Time Period.................FNC..............MSNBC............CNN........Total

Total all Day..............2.035............ .942........... .549....... 3.526
% of All Day viewers........58%...............27%.............16%

Prime Time.................2.991.............1.697.......... .716....... 5.404
% of Prime time Viewers.....55%...............31%.............13%

So Fox draws 111% of the combined viewers of MSNBC and CNN combined in Prime Time, 115% for the day.

What a dumb magnet!!

And then the champion of 'dumb', Tucker Carlson really draws the dummies. I mean, of the 5.992 Million viewers in the 8PM (EST) time slot, 3.7Million tuned in to Tucker. That's 80% of the market. As our astute and wise President would say, "That's Dummies on steroids", by golly.

And Fox commentators have liberal guest commentators, such as Juan Williams, Jessica Tarlov and others. Clearly, liberals are not exempt from dumbness.

And even MSN recently wrote:

The data shows Fox News is watched by 29 percent of liberal prime-time viewers compared to CNN, which garners 25 percent of those viewers.

Uh oh....looks like liberals are getting drawn into the dummy crowd!!

So I guess viewers must be repelled by the cerebral giants at CNN and MSNBC...too much intellectual content, I guess.
