This. ^^ The people who watch Fox News don't really want news. They want to be told exactly what they want to hear, such as that the polls were all wrong and their guy would win. If Fox's ratings have slipped it is probably only temporary, kind of like the conservatives who disappeared from C-D for a few days, but who are back in force. Reading their posts makes you realize they learned absolutely nothing from this election. If you didn't know they had just lost in a landslide you would never suspect. Nothing has changed with them. And they need Fox--who else will tell them exactly what they want to hear and give them their talking points for the next four years?

I agree with that assessment, but Fox supporters have always shot back against it. Last Tuesday it became blatantly obvious, even to them.

To wit: their pre-election ratings were comparable to the numbers pre-election 2008. They even set records during the debates, and on election night. In the three nights after the election, they're down 24% in total viewers and 41% in the key 25-54 demographic compared to 2008. That's a pretty steep plunge, and quickly. Oh yeah, and MSNBC beat them in the demo on ALL of those nights, which is this first time I ever recall MSNBC beating Fox three nights in a row.

Are those lost viewers like our dear sanrene, or Trace, off somewhere licking their wounds? Or is there something more long-lasting going on.
