    CNN is determined to offend every religion. Except Islam, bad things happen when some Moslems take offense.

      Reza Aslan is a total and complete shill for Islam.
      He has zero credibility.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        The crackpot was born in Iran and describes himself as a Sufi muslim. He is beyond a shill. He is a propaganist of the lowest type.

    Finally got around to a big screen TV a few months ago.

    Today was the first day I had misgivings. [tongue in cheek]

    I sat watching ‘Spicey’s’ Press Briefing distracted the entire time wondering, “What in God’s name is stuck in your teeth dude?”

    Hint: The NY Post reports it was something rabbits eat.

    “Sean Spicer’s lunch appears at press briefing:”

    The basic premise of “sanctuary”: we will shield illegal aliens from federal government law enforcement in order not to dilute our political base. If that shields some rapists, murderers, and molesters, well, too bad.

    • Cecelia

      Well said.

  • Larry Kelly

    The media is absolutely shameful in burying the lead in the flap over the Trump-Russian committee chairman “visiting the White House” to view classified information. The possibility that there are intelligence sources with evidence the Obama Administration used planned “incidental surveillance” to spy on the incoming Trump administration is downplayed almost entirely. CBS THIS MORNING had a guest on today alluding to just that when Noah O’donnell angerly snapped at him and loudly talked over him so he could hardly get another word out.

    POLITICO — Trump gives cable news a ratings boost in 2017!
    Fox News had the best quarter in cable news history for 24 hour viewership, topping even the final quarter of 2016, which included election night.

    #SJW lesson of the day: NEVER talk about hair, head, or face of any woman of color. Unless she's conservative. Then it's no holds barred!— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) March 28, 2017

    I admit I didn’t know what SJW meant – Social Justice Warrior.

    I might be the only one , but I am surprised the cable news channels are having high ratings , I would have though politics fatigue would have set in by now.

      Just depressed Liberals that need to watch anything anti-TRUMP to makes themselves feel better 😜 😝 😋

    • Minnesota Nice

      I agree. However liberals don’t last long with cable TV news and also the jokes, mocking, etc. are really starting to get old. I watch Everybody Loves Raymond on TV Land and they advertise George Lopez new TV show all the time and his jokes in the commercials are so old, they must have taped back in January.

    Maddow = Olbermann in the Bush years

    ….ratings boost as voice of the opposition.

    • Larry Kelly

      Lucky them. Lucky me.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        No way on God’s green earth would I watch either lunatic.

    • Son of Rusty Shackleford

      …..more like the rant of the opposition.

    Re; Monday’s numbers

    Last week I had predicted (perhaps along with many others) that after such a packed news week we might see a 15-20 percent drop in the key demo ratings for the three cable news channels this week.

    Just ran the numbers for MON 7p-10p. The demo ratings were down about 17%.

    Will this continue throughout the week baring a major breaking news story? I wouldn’t be surprised.

    Seeing the administrative people, including the president, at Penn State pay criminal penalties over the Jerry Sandusky mess, might make some Murdoch executives aware of the costs of “looking the other way”.

      I will always call the place “Pedo State.”
