No matter who their audience is dominated by, I think everyone is sick of the "war" by now. Perhaps if more TV stations moved onto something a bit more cheerful, the terrorists would realize they have no more audience, and thus have to find another way to be heard.
don't you think you're being just a little bit naive?
"When the war went badly they had to dial back coverage because it didn't fit their preconceived story lines."
Those Iraqis who are fighting are fighting for possession of their country. You don't seriously think they're doing it for the Nielsen ratings, do you?
I can see TV Quick magazine getting alot of new subscriptions from Baghdad.
good o' fox.
A bit more cheerful? I sincerely hope you're kidding with this post.
It's all about quality over quantity.
Know I now you're either playing devil's advocate or are simply a troll.
Report the news and then move on. The alphabet networks have conditioned the public to equate droning on about topics and hand wringing with the value of a given news topic.
I do agree that they should spend more time interviewing the troops and discussing the successes they've had.
Well that ought to increase their war coverage by a huge amount, maybe even thirty seconds a month!!
Yeah, because it's good to free up time to cover more important things, like the dangers of polished fingernails catching on fire.
(seriously, that's the kind of crap FOX news reports on here)
I wouldn't miss Greta and some of the other shows they carry during prime time, that's for sure. That tabloid stuff should be canned.
You're being awfully generous, IMO!
No, they are sick of the war, not hearing about it.
Because they want to return to pretending that what happens on the other side of the world is none of our business and concern themselves with who's sleeping with whom in Hollywood.
Or could it be that Bush wants us not to concern ourselves with the war?
Duh, we have to make time for the Paris Hilton updates.
But that's exactly what Faux news is doing. Pretending and obsessing about paree h.
Is that why you watch it, to pretend that the illegal war doesn't exist?
It would be nice to see any kind of in-depth story about the war from Fox News, but that might take time away from the apparatchiks.
You mean like Anna Nicole and Paris, which is what this article is referencing? To be fair, it's not just Fox. Was it CNN or MSNBC that cut away from the general quiting to cover Paris?
But yeah, we're sick of the war happening, not being covered... just look at the polls.
There in a nutshell you have it.What happens on the other side of the world is none of "our" business.Listening to the rest of the world and pissing off back to the US and tackling "your" internal problems would be a major step forward.
The problem with cable news is that it has turned into 30 second sound bites rather then quality reporting.
I watch CNN for 1 hour and I see the same story 4-5 times. I wish there was some substance for these stories.
