    What is PBC?

    [QUOTE=Ziggae_6;1058362542]I probably should have asked people to list where they watch the news or where they get their news.[QUOTE]

    I don't really count but I go to BBC and Channel 4 for my news at home/Europe and CNN if I want anything to do with US

    I know, I normally use the tv for porn too. Internet porn isn't so good anymore.

    To demonstrate this, I am going to list the ratings by average households. I would agree this is apple and oranges but the point is that the evening network news is still a large influence. So this is the current ratings by household:

    Ratings by average household

    NBC 6.3 million
    ABC 5.9 million
    CBS 4.6 million

    Fox 1.0 million
    CNN .5 million
    MSNBC .3 million





    Network newscasts still dominate :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Lewis Lazare
    No wonder there are so many misinformed people out there.

    Don't worry Fox's viewership will probably go down after the 2012 election.

    Somewhat off-topic: I always knew that you guys paid some sort of license fee to the BBC, but I never knew how much it was until today.

    The idea of paying $250/year for the privilege of PBS or its like just boggles the mind. I wouldn't pay $100/year for NBC/ABC/CBS/Fox/NYTimes combined.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
