When these cable TV political talk show hosts argue over ratings....
...here's something to keep in mind.

According to this March 27, 2009, http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090327/ap_en_tv/tv_cnn_in_third">AP story, "Fox was averaging 2.73 million prime-time viewers in March. MSNBC had 1.16 million and CNN had 1.14 million."

That's roughly 5 million people, in a nation of roughly 300 million.

.016% of the population watches those shows.

I think that's mostly good news.

1. Considering that's about the number of people that vote it is
pathetic.

2. It's far less than the number of voters. I think it's a good thing that so few watch
those shows. They're little more than propaganda on both sides.
