    Look at what they cover: OJ Simpson; Britney; Lindsy. I was staying at my mothers last week and she has MSNBC on a lot. I could not believe how much OJ BS was on. Then I changed it to CNN, FOX, etc. No real difference.
    Less then 1 million people on average watch any cable news show at any time. I can see why.
    The Nightly News for the major networks is better- but the combined numbers are less then 10% of the population of the US- and I wonder how many of them move from one network to the other and get counted as being separate viewers. Just now I was looking at the internet CNN and FOX news. You know how much was there about the iranian wack job? JUST ABOUT NOTHING. Instead there was the lead on CNN about a missing child in England. Now that may be interesting but as the lead on CNN right NOW?

    News has been becoming entertainment programming for awhile now. A bad thing for everyone. And apparantly it isn't even getting strong viewership there either.
