    How is that "bottomline" for NY Times, CNN, MSNBC, and even the mainstream media NBC, CBS, and ABC? Seems that their ideology trumps common sense business practices thus shareholder value which is shrinking. News Corp however is doing quite well and News Corp owns Fox News.

    It's only Corp media when they need cover for their skewed reporting, and attack journalism.

    Why would anyone find that finding Fox news doing quite well surprising, after all Fox appeals to 51% of the registered voters who still don't believe that President Obama was born in America while another 23% are not sure. I listened to Fox last night as they tried to convince their loyal followers that our military should have been in Libya. We have a president who knows how to work within the International community. Fox has one priority and that is their ratings

    Are there any official Republican contenders at all? So far, there is just speculation on who might run.

    Actually yours is a typical liberal comment when you cannot refute what is being reported. Fox viewers are looking at results instead of solely listening to the rhetoric. It does appear to me that most Obama supporters have no concept of leadership or even understanding results. Keep throwing out the birther comments and ignore the 15 million unemployed Americans, lower employment today than when he took office, trillions added to the debt, and meager economic growth, but on the plus sign his golf game is improving and he is helping the economy of all those foreign countries he is visiting while on vacation.

    Now, since Fox is doing well due to the "birthers" why is it that liberal media is doing so poorly as that still leaves a lot of the public that still is there buying the Obama rhetoric? could it be that it isn't truly 51% of the registered voters that are watching Fox but instead people are watching Fox because they are sick and tired of the liberal spin coming from the rest of the networks? you see, trust but verify is what conservatives do and when you verify the Obama rhetoric you find results that don't measure up. You ought to try it some time. Name for me an economic or foreign relations success for Obama?

    The networks, whether it is FOX or MSNBC, depend on advertising dollars to stay in business. Advertisers would rather play their propaganda to a larger audience than to a smaller one. The name of the game, therefore, is attracting an audience. The news networks, therefore, play what will attract the largest number of viewers, period. If a showman like Glenn Beck, for example, attracts an audience, then he stays on the air. If he fails to entertain enough people, then he's history. It is not a matter of ideology, or of reporting reality or facts, or of any spin one way or the other, but about advertising dollars.

    Just like any other corporation, broadcasters are driven by the bottom line.

    Except with the liberal media that seems to be so arrogant that they refuse to change and give the people what they want which is the truth, not more rhetoric and promises.

    Obama won the 2008 elections with 52% of the vote, he has lost much of that support due to performance and results. To make it any other issue is just a diversion. The people that supported him who now won't vote to re-elect him are seeing the results. Those that continue to support him still hear the rhetoric. Notice the difference?

The President isn't a contestent on American Idol so stop treating him like one by voting for him because you like him personally. He lacks leadership skills and the results are a disaster.
    Like I said, approval polls mean nothing, the only poll that matters is the one taken on Nov 2012. Obama's poll numbers are greater than Ronald Reagan had going for his second term.
    Much of the Debt and Deficit that you whine about was caused by Bush, you just can't legitimately blame it all on Obama.

    There is quite a difference, Reagan got results and the Reagan economic policy resonated with the American people. His recession led to 10.8%unemployment and double digit inflation which he turned around in two years leading to the biggest election victory in history. It is policy that matters and that is where the difference lies. Reagan's policy was pro growth and pro individual wealth creation whereas Obama's was pro govt. and pro wealth redistribution. Liberals love the latter and the country on a whole prefers the former. If you are looking for a Reagan type rebound for Obama you are going to be sorely disappointed as he doesn't have any of Reagan in him as his policies show.
