  •  Why is everyone competing for (none)
    the Faux News audience?  Faux has them locked up.  Why isn't anyone competing for US?  Do they figure that we'll just keep watching the least of all available evils because we're incurable news junkies?

    By Jove, I think I got it.

    •  Because they think they are moral and they are (none)
      self-righteous.  What they believe is right, dammit, and everyone who doesn't is just dirt.

      Get it.

      It's not about ratings any more.  If they carry the GOP's water, they get plenty of money passing legislation favoring them.

      No Thank You, Mr. Bush. I DON'T need you to protect me.

      •  Capitol Cities/Disney owns ABC (none)
        Yup, they desperately want to be embraced by so-called "Mainstream America" and not targeted for boycott or protest for seeming to be too liberal.

        Plus, they want the support of the politicians that these people vote for in order to have yet more odious pro-media consolidation and deregulation legislation passed.

        It's about bucks, one way or another. They could give two shits about the morality of it.
