If Liberalism Is So Popular, Why Does Liberal Media Always Fail?
Fox News kills all the other looser liberal channels in the ratings with great ease. Air America failed because no one cares and NPR can't survive without money taken from American citizens and college transmitters. I don't think Fox News, Rush, Beck Hannity and Levin take a dime of taxpayer money. They all make it with money that advertisers want to pay. Advertisers want to be heard, so the Rush Limbaugh Show is a better investment than NPR's "All Things Considered". Advertisers go where the audience is. The ratings tell us where America really is.
I'm ready to hear liberals explain the failure of liberal media is because they get their news elsewhere. OK, cool. Where are you getting it? What liberal media is successful? Is it NONE?
If the liberal, socialist message is so popular, why are the ratings almost nothing?
Dr. Zaeus claims liberals get it from the printed media. Which printed media is the liberal ratings king, again? Are you sure is isn't NOTHING?

Liberalism is only popular with people who want to live off other people's hard work.

That would be loser liberal channels not looser...Did you know that Rush, Beck, and Hannity are the 3 highest paid "media entertainers" on TV? I honestly don't know why they are. They're just spreading lies anyway. Also why do you say liberal, socialist message. You do realize there is a difference right? Oh wait that's right, Fox News would have you believe liberals, socialists, and communists are all the same thing. I feel really bad for your lack of education.

When Donahue was cancelled it was the most popular show on TV.
It isn't for lack of listeners that liberal talk radio went away.
It went away at the peak of its popularity- when America lost half
of its radio & local TV stations in
what is called the
"Great Media Consolidation" of the past 2 decades.
A corporate ownership of all stations was acheived, and people silenced.

Yes, just look at the dozens of liberal networks that have failed and compare that with the number of conservative networks (1?) enjoying some success....
Fox regularly achieves a market share of almost 2 million US viewers in a nation where there are only 310 million people! Now THAT is the conservative idea of "success"!

If conservative media is so popular how come Glenn Beck has lost over 1 million viewers in a year? A year ago he had about 3 million viewers, NOW his audience is average 1.8 million viewers. Jon Stewart's audience is almost as big, 1.7 millions.
Oh and why is NY times STILL second largest newpaper in USA?

Perhaps because liberals like the facts whereas conservatives like being told what to think?

Liberal media doesn't exist because big money owns the media and liberalism isn't their agenda.

Popular only to a vocal few.

Do you want another bunch of answers "Fox lies," "Fox is not news..." from brainwashed little solders of 0bama's army? No? Then why do you ask this question?

Because people don't like to be lied to and tend to gravitate toward the truth.
That is why Fox's viewership is growing.
