Audiences Fleeing MTV, Comedy Central

November 5, 2012

Two of the most prominent channels on your cable or dish system are suffering from significant audience decline.

Here’s a hint: one channel features a “news” duo who famously tilt to the left, while the other is known for foisting The Situation and Snooki on an unsuspecting public.

Comedy Central’s prime-time audience fell 19% in the four weeks through Oct. 21, while MTV’s viewership declined 32% in the same period, according to Nielsen.Signs of slight ratings erosion were evident at both channels earlier this year, but the recent numbers show a much greater decline. So far this year, Comedy Central’s average daily viewership is down 10% while MTV’s is off 18%. Nickelodeon’s audience, meanwhile, is down 23% for the year to date although the drop-off in September was narrower than in previous months….
MTV’s ratings falloff has come even before the channel loses its popular “Jersey Shore.” The reality show is in its last season and the network hasn’t developed any monster hits to replace it.

that would explain why the show is attempting more balance. It might be too little too late… and also no… not really


Everybody doesn’t have to pay their taxes… except this guy

October 31, 2010

Here is the deal. He’s an adult. Everyone else is children because we think our taxes are too high. So the new rule is any large corporation that proportionately financed Obama in the last election and this guy… is going to be taxed. Everyone else is free to watch this guy make a new sign.

John Stewart’s ‘Sanity’ Rally to include Code Pink, Anarchists

October 31, 2010

Comedian Jon Stewart
announces his
Rally to Restore Sanity
on Comedy Central on Sept. 16.

It is looking like John Stewart’s “Restore Sanity” rally will define sanity rather peculiarly. Code Pink, Anarchists, and pro-abortion groups plan to attend at the Lincoln Memorial on October 30th.

The O’Jays also hit the stage at Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s ‘Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear.’
About midway through the show, which already featured a nearly 40-minute set from John Legend and The Roots, Stewart announced the next performer, Yusuf Islam. The folk icon formerly known as Cat Stevens, hit the stage with an acoustic rendition of “Peace Train.” However, instead of letting Yusuf placidly strum along, Colbert stormed the stage, ranting about the song’s message of harmony. The satirical pundit then proclaimed, “My train is arriving at the stage now and the conductor has an important announcement to make!”   (Source)

Yusuf Islam (aka Cat Stevens), accused of backing Salman Rusdie fatwah, appears at DC ‘Rally to Restore Sanity’
Among those who appeared at Jon Stewart’s DC snarkfest (and attempt to suppress Democratic GOTV activists?) Rally to Restore Sanity in DC today was Yusuf Islam, the artist formerly known as Cat Stephens. Here he is:

There’s more, of course:
It’s a curious choice, to put it mildly, given Yusuf’s alleged support of thefatwah against Salman Rushdie. All audio of the words he used to allegedly support the fatwah (which he has strenuously insisted he did not do) has been removed from YouTube, apparently at the crooner’s behest. Here are some of those words spoken by an actor (the Telegraph has more of this crap)


CNN makes Jew Hater Rick Sanchez a scapegoat [UPDATED]

October 2, 2010

and yes Rick is a Jew Hater, but so was Ted Turner!
Listen to Sanchez talk about Stewart, Jews and the media:

“Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well,’ a CNN statement said.


those powerful Jews are awful scared of speaking out Rick.
it took you spelling it out for everyone for people to get it.

Ironically, the fact that Stewart is so liberal doomed Sanchez since if the high-level executives have any presumption it is that someone on the left could not possibly be racist or bigoted.

Ironically, too, Sanchez is really expressing resentment against an elite that he thinks, not without reason, considers itself to be superior to everyone else. But that isn’t because such people are sometimes Jewish but because they went to prestigious universities, dress and think in a certain way, and so on.


Aside from the fact that he is incompetent, Sanchez does get—and distort—a glimmer of the truth. There is a ruling class in America today but not the fat, top-hatted capitalists of yesteryear but the smug upper middle class controllers of academia, media, non-profit corporations, and government agencies.


When you hear the word “program” these people will be there managing enterprises supposedly to help the poor or feed the hungry while pulling down big salaries, spending the American public’s money, and often doing little good for the aforementioned “good cause.”


As a typical left-leaning media guy, however, Sanchez cannot say that, so instead he grasps onto a once-rightist idea that the Jews are the enemy. Politics has come full circle. The left is the locus of our contemporary Marie Antoinettes who jeer, “Let them eat carrots!” and of those who use antisemitic concepts

so now that it is obvious that Rick Sanchez is a Jew hater… perhaps we can see this so called Israeli narrative is the truth? funny the way time brings out the real story.  do a youtube search on this guy and see some of the crap he said about Israel breaking a seize fire… which turned out not to be true… but he never retracted it.

ORIGINAL POST: CNN’s Rick Sanchez made controversial comments on a Sirius radio show Thursday, calling Jon Stewart a “bigot” and saying that CNN and the other networks are all run by Jewish people.

Discussing Stewart with radio host Pete Dominick, Sanchez said that the “Daily Show” host has a limited worldview, and called him a “bigot.”

The conversation began with Sanchez decrying “elite, Northeast establishment liberals” who “deep down, when they look at a guy like me, they see a guy automatically who belongs in the second tier, and not the top tier.

“I think to some extent Jon Stewart and [Stephen] Colbert are the same way. I think Jon Stewart’s a bigot,” he said. “I think he looks at the world through, his mom, who was a school teacher, and his dad, who was a physicist or something like that. Great, I’m so happy that he grew up in a suburban middle class New Jersey home with everything you could ever imagine.”

When asked who Stewart is bigoted against, Sanchez said “everybody else who’s not like him.”

Sanchez would eventually retract the “bigot” claim, settling instead on calling Stewart “prejudicial” and “uninformed.”

But he made a larger point when Dominick suggested that Stewart could understand being part of an oppressed minority group because he is Jewish.

Sanchez scoffed at the claim, snickering and suggesting that CNN and the rest of the media is run by Jewish people (from the “Stand Up with Pete Dominick” blog):

Very powerless people… [snickers] He’s such a minority, I mean, you know [sarcastically]… Please, what are you kidding? … I’m telling you that everybody who runs CNN is a lot like Stewart, and a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart, and to imply that somehow they — the people in this country who are Jewish — are an oppressed minority? Yeah. [sarcastically]

I was wondering how long it would take for people to say something.

do a youtube search on this guy and see some of the crap he said about Israel breaking a sieze fire… which turned out not to be true… but he never retracted it.


next to get her ass handed to her.  Christine Amanpour… who already had to leave CNN… probably because the network ratings nose dived.   people know hate when they hear it.

we may not always be able to prove it… but the audience isn’t as stupid as Rick thinks they are.  That was why no one was watching.

The lesson here?  you can pick on the Jews… but you can’t pick on Jon Stewart because he makes the Zionist bashers laugh.  …not that Jon Stewart is a supporter of the free world.


Should Stephen Colbert be indicted for lying under oath to Congress?

September 25, 2010
Stephen Colbert made a complete mockery of Congress by “testifying” in character and under oath to a House subcommittee on immigration.
