<Beck kills them nightly and Dobbs is off the air for now. I am sure you can wrap your mind around which one I was talking about when I said.>
Sorry bud. I thought we were talking about Dobbs. Ok, on to Beck.
<The meaning is, this is a business the goal is to win.>
Um, no. The goal of a business is to make a profit. Winning is a political goal. Your politics blind you.
<If Olbermann got good numbers the fact that I thought he was an idiot wouldn't matter, the numbers don't lie>
If ratings are all we want to look at, then CNN should put on professional wrestling and cartoons. They kick Beck's a$$ every night. The numbers don't lie.
Cable networks make money serving a niche to reach a particular demographic. CNBC gets low numbers but is worth money because of the demographic it serves. Same for HGTV. Fox News kicks their butts every night (as do the other news networks). Disney Channel kicks FNC's butt up and down.The point is can you sell adds and make money.
Beck and Dobbs are entertainers not newsmen. Conspiracy theorists etc. They belong on CNN as much as they belong on the cartoon network.
This convo is about talking heads and pontificater not cartoons and wrestling.
