  •  How many of those "viewers" (6+ / 0-)

    are actually watching Morning Schmoe? I like to think that most of those numbers are from folks who turn on the TV out of habit and just happen to have it on MSNBC from watching Keith and Rachel the night before. (I'm a devotee of ESPN2 and "Mike and Mike" here, at least till Stephanie Miller hits the radio at 6 am.)

    And that news about Focus on the Family is funny, if it wasn't so disturbing -- if they've lost $2 million in donations and still keep going, how much money are they really bringing in a year...and how much good could that money do families in peril by providing food and shelter and heat? I'm sure that when push comes to shove, most families who are worried about putting food on their families and keeping the eviction notice off the door could give a rat's ass about a couple of gays getting married. As the bumper sticker says, "Focus on your own damn family."

    •  I wonder whether Dobson took a pay cut to save (3+ / 0-)

      jobs?  Doubtful.  So much for following the Bible...All those low paid workers gotta mention of FOF programs to help them find new jobs, pay the mortgage, or put food on the table.  The problem with the glee over the FOF layoffs is that the people who are being hurt are not James Dobson, they just work for him in low level jobs.  The power-hungry pseudo Christian and his gang of theological thugs are not going to miss a meal or skip a first class ticket to peddle their anti-Christian theology to like minded lemmings.  Those in Colordao Springs who are looking for the anti-Christ ought to look in the direction of the august Mr. Dobson, although Mr. Robertson is also a candidate IMHO.  

    •  Yeah - think of what all those prop 8 funds (4+ / 0-)

      could have done for pantries.

    •  too weird--lefty me defending MJ--ha! but during (0+ / 0-)

      my toggling cnn & msnbc this morning, i just caught the end of the editor or owner of the magazine, Plenty, which is a fairly decent smattering of "green" topics.  the other day deepak chopra was on (i missed it!).  when they all start wailing the right wing wail, i just go to cnn, if i'm watching anything.  

      •  The "Plenty" dude was probably an aberration (1+ / 0-)

        since the NBC networks are on their "green" kick this week -- Bob Costas did the kickoff during Football Night in America on Sunday night, and "The Today Show" is doing stuff from around the world on places in danger due to global warming (one person is climbing Kilimanjaro where the famed snows have almost all melted, someone's in Australia where the coral reefs are in danger from rising sea temperatures, etc.). It'll be back to "normal" next week, never fear.

      based on all of the diaries around here that bitch and moan about how awful and painful it is to watch Morning Joe.
