Fox News wipes out U.S. competition including CNN

Thanks to Matt Drudge for these stats. 

Fox News Channel (“FNC” in the stats) dominates massively.  But what I find most amusing is that a joker, a comedian, a “pretend” news anchor, Jon Stewart of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show”, beats all of CNN’s big-time-star (“serious”) news anchors.  That’s gotta hurt.

…And I almost forgot to mention that Fox News Channel is no longer banned by the state-censor and regulator in Canada (the CRTC division of the Liberal Party) and is available to Rogers Cable, Shaw Cable, and Star*Choice subscribers.  Fox News Channels actually allows conservatives’ thoughts to leak out into society unmocked.  Check it out!  It’s really quite astonishing.

Does "TweetPoo" sound crass?
