MSNBC’s Phil Griffin suggests investigation into Fox News ratings blowout
7:58 PM 10/11/2013
 
MSNBC president Phil Griffin suggested journalists should investigate how the ratings for Megyn Kelly’s new 9 p.m. show on Fox News shot up on its second night after debuting behind MSNBC.

When Kelly’s new show debuted Monday on Fox News, her competitor Rachel Maddow held her own in the ratings, and even topped Kelly in the key 25-54 demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research. But on Tuesday night, it wasn’t even close with Fox News dominating the rest of cable news.

Griffin complained about the jump in an interview Friday with TVNewser’s Alex Weprin.

“Monday we had a really good day in the key demographic, on the night that Fox News debuted their three shows, we either tied or beat them in those hours,” Griffin said. “Tuesday — you guys should be doing some investigations — I have never seen it in all my years of cable, same overnight, same everything, and they doubled their ratings in a day? It is impossible.”

“I have never seen it, they did election night numbers in the demo Tuesday,” he added. “Wednesday it came back down. I complained, I was like, what?”

The Daily Caller reached out to Nielsen for comment, but so far has received no response.

  • “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them
Just like a liberal to complain someone is doing better and should be investigated, which is blowing smoke, rather than looking at himself and his network to find out what they are lacking.  As the Bible suggests he should worry about the board in his own eye before he worries about the sliver in someone else's. *look*

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

“Wednesday it came back down. I complained, I was like, what?”


Now there's a role model in speech and deportment for you.....    :thud:
Character still matters.  It always matters.

I watched my grandson play flag football this afternoon. Someone pulled his flag, he got mad, and threw the football down. My son, the coach, threw him out of the game, so off he went, crying to his mother. Later, my son told him to take it the lumps, or not play the game, among other daddy chat. He is seven years old, and is learning. These idiots are adults, and should get out of the game if they can't take the lumps.
