    IT'S NOT JUST GLENN BECK: FOX News Has Lost 21% Of Its Audience This Year
    Glynnis MacNicol and Joseph Alexiou | Mar. 30, 2011, 4:35 PM |


    beck phoneFox News has the top 12 most-watched shows so far this year.

    Which is perhaps not totally surprising since this marks the network's ninth straight year as the number one channel in cable.

    That is not to say it's all rainbows and unicorns.  (Or cupcakes and caliphates.) All of Fox's top shows posted double digit losses year over year.

    Glenn Beck suffered the biggest drop, losing 30% of his audience compared to the first quarter last year.  But he wasn't alone.  Top ranking O'Reilly lost 14% of his audience, Sean Hannity, up a spot from 2010, lost 19%, and Bret Baier, who pushed Beck out of the top three, lost 13%.

    Greta Van Susteren, who has been bleeding viewers to Anderson Cooper this month, is down 22.86%.

    All in all Fox News actually lost 21% of its primetime audience during the quarter.

    That doesn't surprise me. I think their ratings will continue to drop. People are tired of the hysteria and are wising up to the way Fox runs its news programs.

      I think people are getting tired of the negetivity from everyone.  With all of the bad stuff that's happened to the us since 2001 we need something to feel good about and the news just isn't delivering.

    I don't watch TV normally. On the rare occasion I'll turn the TV on, just to see what's on, if that type of boredom sets in. If something catches my eye, then I'll watch it. Otherwise, I don't bother. I haven't sat down to watch News on TV in 10 years, because it's no different than just a tool of politicians, to manipulate the masses.

    For all the clamoring about media and the public has a right to know ideology, New agencies have failed to follow through on remaining unbiased. Each have an agenda based on greed and influence of the masses. Until someone decides to break that status, you'll only find distortion and misinformation.

    Media helps politicians spread distortion and misinformation, so the public cannot see past it, so as to recognize the actions of those involved. It's proven by the lack of unbiased information offered by all of them.

    It leaves the average citizen confused on the matters that matter most. So what happens? They don't think about it and move on with living, just accepting things that happen, instead of investigating it, seeing it for what it is. It's ridiculous.

    Are any news programs even worth watching yet.. ?

    Where it is 100% news that you want to watch, because it is worthwhile stuff? Rather than the never-ending political saga. With the Heel and the Face(good guy, bad guy) in the WWE. There has to be a hero and a villain in everything with a lot of those shows. And that is what I can not stand.

      The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. Sure, they mock the politicians, but they also have some very interesting guests from all sides of the political spectrum.

    Air a false news story in the UK and there is a good chance the reporter will lose his or her job. The producer might also be history. In serious cases the big bosses have to walk.

    It's the same story at serious US newspapers.

    It is only in Murdoch's US broadcast interests and the average blog (of any political persuasion) that the truth is purely optional.

    Stossel is the best show they have.  He kicks everybody in the ass regardless of party.

    I usually don't watch the news myself.  Sometimes I will, but I am 39 and have gotten tired of all the negetive crap they all keep putting on. 

    That may be what sells, but society needs some feel good stories so they can feel good too.  The more negetivity you get exposed to, the more negetive you become yourself.  In todays society thinking positive just isn't enough for most people anymore.
