    because they have sussed something the other channels haven't really.

    they don't assume any critical thinking on the viewers' part, and they vary the datastream with lots of little distractions, lotsa shiny, loud and garish, very short attention span subjects (2 mins unless it's krauthammer who gets 3), lotsa blondes, sappy kitsch faux patriotism, health tips, youtube talking dogs, red white and blue, kitchen tips on and on, and then some none-too-sly obama bashing, round and round, on and on again and again.

    these programmers understand the Great Unthunk perfectly and aim at the target they know brings results, innuendo, lies, hype and propaganda.

    did i mention lies?

    but it's sold as entertainment, warp and woof, all the talking heads are happy happy happy, while they slide in the shiv.

    goebbels had no tools, compared to fox he was a piker, murdoch and ailes play the proles like an evil symphony, relying on stoking unrest and unreason, continually shaken and stirred so nothing lucid or new can ever crystallise, and into the cognitive vacuum comes the relentless message, up is down, sarah palin is a genius, karl rove cares, predatory capitalism is cute as a puppy, aaawww!

    evil their intent, and evil the results of their labours, but the skill with which they play the media game is unparalleled, sadly.

    reality presented as shallow, sleekly bubblicious video game...

    ~complete with baubles and bobbleheads~

    Current is really good! lotsa viewer generated stuff.

    why? just kos..... *just cause*
