If you've been following the cable news ratings, and we know you have, you'll know Fox News has been dominating, even more than usual, in 2009. In the just-finished third quarter, Fox News beat CNN and MSNBC combined in Total Viewers and the A25-54 demo in both total day and primetime viewing. FNC is also the only cable news network to post across the board gains vs. Q3 '08.
• In Total Viewers, FNC was up 2% in primetime and up 8% in total day.
• In A25-54 viewers, FNC was up 5% in primetime and up 12% in total day.
• FNC was the third-ranked cable network behind ESPN and USA.
• FNC had the top 10 programs in cable news. "The O'Reilly Factor" has been the #1 cable news show for 106 consecutive months. From 4pmET to 11pmET, all of FNC's programs showed growth, most double digits:
Rank/Show — Total Viewer / A25-54 demo growth
2. "Hannity," -- 9% / 17%
3. "Glenn Beck," -- 89% / 136%
4. "On the Record," -- 16% / 21%
5. "Special Report" -- 20% / 34%
6. "The FOX Report" -- 9% / 18%
9. "Your World" -- 16% / 27%
And for the month of September, FNC claimed the Top 13 programs in cable news in Total Viewers, which hasn't happened since Nov. 2004. It was the network's best month for the year in today day with Total Viewers and A25-54 viewers. Also, "America's Newsroom" (9-11amET) with Megyn Kelly and Bill Hemmer had its highest rated month (and quarter) in A25-54 viewers.
I think the fact you use rude terms like "teabagging events" and hold MSNBC to a different standard than fox betrays your partisanism.
Fox had nothing to do with organizing Tea party events.
That said, I know hannity was against the bailouts, O'reilly is pro gun control and often disagrees with republicans. Beck is a libertarian, albiet a nut case as well. Shep smith is a democrat. so is van susteren, Alan colmes is liberal.
This is all easily verifiable. MSNBC and FOX are different wings of the same bird.

The man is boring & a joke. (always says "I'll give you the last word"....& then cuts their mic & takes the last word!)
They ran the things@!
One quick link:
Fox News’s ‘coverage’ of tea parties: 23 segments, 73 on-air promos in eight days.
As ThinkProgress has documented, Fox News has aggressively promoted today’s conservative, anti-Obama tea parties. A Media Matters analysis found that Fox dedicated 23 separate segments to the tea parties between April 6 and April 13; it aired at least 73 in-show and commercial promotions for the parties as well. Of all the Fox programs, Neil Cavuto’s “Your World” dedicated the most time to the tea parties:
