  •  Would like to believe this, but source? (0+ / 0-)

    The link in this diary goes to a a blog post that repeats the claim that Rachel beat Hannity in that demographic, but with no link to a source for that claim.  

    If I'm missing something, please respond.  Otherwise,  as much as I'd like to believe this, there's nothing at all to back this up.  And given the ratings history of these two, I doubt it's true.

      So you're saying that when you see a posting on a blog for which there is no link, you conclude that it isn't true? Really?

      Links are great. I'm a big proponent of them despite my having inadvertantly left one out in this diary. But you know, you could just look it up yourself since cable ratings are readily available on the InterTubes. But rather than take that simple step you chose to believe the information is false. Therefore, it must also be false that Maddow even has a television show at all. I didn't provide a link to that either.

      I actually have a link to the numbers, but now I'm not going to post it. Hopefully you'll take 30 seconds and educate yourself. If you had just asked for a link to have for future reference or to seek additional context, I would have obliged. But to say that the absence of a link is evidence of falsehood is just too much.

      Good luck in your search.

    •  DB55, Nielson ratings link below, it's true. (0+ / 0-)

      The margin is slim for 25-54 yr age group.  Rachel still lags slightly behind Hannity in overall ratings.  Excellent showing for a news program that is in its infancy.
