OH SH*T! O'REILLY O'FALLIN' IN RATINGS

O'Reilly continues to hemorrhage viewers month-over-month since October." Here are the monthly averages:

October: 3,166,000 / November: 3,080,000 / December: 2,610,000 / January: 2,478,000 / February: 2,391,000 / March: 2,320,000 / April: 2,178,000 / May-to-date: 2,096,000

Kos has picked up on this as well. Many libs will laugh at this and say: "Look! Folks are getting fed up with right-wing hate TV." I have a much different take. First, take a look at O'Reilly's radio ratings. They are in the toilet and continue to free fall as well. Now, this may be due to the fact that O'Reilly has just turned into an annoying Media-Elite type. But, I think it goes deeper than that.

O'Reilly [and for that matter, FoxNews in general] has tacked decidely to the LEFT since the election ended. I don't know the reason for this, but I'm assuming Roger Ailes is looking for acceptance from Center and the Left. What he doesn't realize is that he is alienating the audience which drove O'Reilly's numbers that high to begin with. True Conservatives are running away from FoxNews in droves... Why? Answer: FoxNews has become the CNN of 5 years ago. We need a new "right-wing" TV news channel... The "old" FoxNews is dead.
