who cares about ratings ??? here is what is more important.

Fox news viewers were found very uninformed compared to those who watched MSNBC , CNN ,..... ect... who came up the most informed ? those who watched the Daily Show with John Stewart !

2 different studies but here is the link for one.

Public Knowledge of Current Affairs Little Changed by News and Information Revolutions
What Americans Know: 1989-2007

SURVEY: Daily Show/Colbert Viewers Most Knowledgable, Fox News Viewers Rank Lowest»

A new study by the Pew Research Study shows that viewers of the Daily Show and the Colbert Report have the highest knowledge of national and international affairs, while Fox News viewers rank nearly dead last:

Despite significant technology shifts, however, Pew found that “today’s citizens are about as able to name their leaders, and are about as aware of major news events, as was the public nearly 20 years ago.”

The results about Fox News echo findings of previous surveys. In 2003, University of Maryland researchers studied the public’s belief in three false claims — that Iraq possessed WMD, that Iraq was involved in 9/11, and that there was international support for the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

The researchers stated, “The extent of Americans’ misperceptions vary significantly depending on their source of news. Those who receive most of their news from Fox News are more likely than average to have misperceptions.” Fox News viewers were “three times more likely than the next nearest network to hold all three misperceptions.”

Yeah its the part that the mainstream doesn't cover about 13.5 million listeners


Of course not. They care about the other 280 million listeners in the US and others world wide. msm don't program for minorities.
