CNN's Main Anchors Lose Half Their Audience Over Past Year; Joy Frickin' Behar Beat Larry King 21 Times In Last Quarter

Noted imbecile and C-List actor Matthew Modine just asked why we can't just sit down with Osama bin Ladin and ask him why he hates us.

MATTHEW MODINE: The play that I'm in right now, making my Broadway debut, "The Miracle Worker," is very much a story about communication. At first, you might think it's a story about a student and a teacher, Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan. In a bigger sense, the story is about all of us being deaf and blind. [rambling retarded blather omitted.] But we have to do that all the time in different ways with our children or with people who see things differently than us. Imagine if somebody were to really sit down with Osama Bin Ladin and say, "Listen man, what is it that you're so angry at me about that you're willing to have people strap bombs to themselves, or get inside of airplanes and fly them into buildings?" That would be the miracle if we can get, sit down and talk to our enemies and have a fine way for them to hear us.

Hey, man, why don't you stop butchering people? It's a buzzkill, man.

You know, guys like Matthew Modine are so charming and empathetic and stuff that if only they'd had the chance to sit down with Adolf Hitler and have a real good (air quotes) "rap session," why...

I'm quoting that because the liberal media never pauses for a moment to ask the pertinent question, "Why does the American public hate us, and what can we do to appease them?"

CNN continued what has become a precipitous decline in ratings for its prime-time programs in the first quarter of 2010, with its main hosts losing almost half their viewers in a year.

...

The trend in news ratings for the first three months of this year is all up for one network, the Fox News Channel, which enjoyed its best quarter ever in ratings, and down for both MSNBC and CNN.
...

About the only break from the bad news for CNN was that March was not as bad as February, when the network had its worst single month in its recent history, finishing behind not only Fox News and MSNBC, but also its sister network HLN — and even CNBC, which had Olympics programming that month.

...

But the numbers are stark: For the network’s longest-running host, Larry King, who has always been regarded at CNN as the centerpiece of prime time because he drew the biggest audiences at 9 p.m., the quarter was his worst ever.

Meanwhile, FoxNews quadruples CNN's audience, and gained 25-50% in primetime, depending on host.

Despite? Headline: Despite Olbermann Being Out, March is Best Month for 'Countdown' This Quarter.

Again: Despite?

Coming soon, a Countdown Special Commentary: The Fight Against Irrelevance.
