This claim is first misleading, and then false.

First, the gross number of watchers isn't so important as the number of watchers IN THE DEMO (to advertisers). What demo is that? The demo where people have jobs and spend money, and it's 25-54 or something like that. Using the numbers for all these programs 'in the demo' (this one), the numbers get much closer. Why? Because the average viewer age for Fox overall is about 65 years old, and that means many viewers older than 65. Not a demo so heavily prized by advertisers.

And since when does a network that has moved itself up past CNN to be the second most watched cable network remove its single-highest rated host, who brought on board all the other talking heads that made up that surge to second place? (Oh, wait-- that's what they did to Phil Donahue also. Again, however, not for the reason that his #1 rating for CNBC was lower than his opposition.)

So let's see ... the network's management thought it was food to get their arses handed to them? Right.

Or, consider this.

GE ... which owned MSNBC ... wanted to scalp up several billion in TARP money that they shouldn't have received. In exchange for this funding, they agree to install a crew which has publicly stated they get a thrill running up their leg when dear leader speaks and consider it their duty to make the regime successful in it's far left agenda.

This allows an inexpensive route for the party ... being that the kickbacks are all from the people's funds ... to have an in place media outlet with which to feed the raw meat of hate to the moonbat the crazy left in America on a nightly basis.

Then, once the MSNBC agitprops have served their purpose ... they are sold off and cast aside and their former head becomes a "CZAR" seated at the right hand of dear leader.

I don't think they got TARP money. I think you are talking about this.

Industrial Giant Becomes Top Recipient in Debt-Guarantee Program

By Jeff Gerth and Brady Dennis
ProPublica and Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, June 29, 2009

General Electric, the world's largest industrial company, has quietly become the biggest beneficiary of one of the government's key rescue programs for banks.

The company did not initially qualify for the program, under which the government sought to unfreeze credit markets by guaranteeing debt sold by banking firms. But regulators soon loosened the eligibility requirements, in part because of behind-the-scenes appeals from GE. </div></div>
