If You Like Your Political Lie, You Can Keep Your Political Lie: Union Leaders Continue Making Noises About Losing Their Insurance Under ObamaCare | Main | No, Media and Left, the Zimmerman Case Had Nothing to Do With "Stand Your Ground" Laws

MSNBC, "The Place for Politics," Once Again Falls to Bottom

The Place for Politics, not the place for breaking news.

And when there is lots of breaking news, as with the Zimmerman trial, MSNBC winds up looking abused and lifeless like Chris Matthews liver, or, in fact, Chris Matthews genitals after a particularly "Lincolnesque" Obama speech.

While Fox (at number 1) and CNN (at number 2) garnered about three and a half million viewers Saturday night (when the Zimmerman verdict was breaking)...

MSNBC, the left-wing network that hoped the Zimmerman trial would rescue them from the ratings dumpster, came in a distant third with only 1.298 million viewers -- about a third of its competition.

But look at the demos! some idiot leftwinger says to me, in my mind.

Okay, fine, let's look at the demos. They're also awful.

In the all-important 25-54 demo, CNN came in first with 1.716 million; Fox News was second with 1.113 million. MSNBC was again dead last with only 510k viewers.

Meanwhile, from the sidebar, The Daily Caller has passed Politico in traffic. Darned good, DC!

Or maybe it's just that Politico is a nightmare of tedium and collapsed under the weight of its own uselessness. Well, it's damn good news either way.
