FOX leans to the right, and people here are always pointing out what a HUGE share of the audience FOX has. Much more than MSNBC and CNN combined. Plus, conservatives dominate talk radio. So quit yer whinin'.

Saying conservatives dominate talk radio is like saying the Lakers dominate LA basketball fans.

FoxNews may lean to the right, but only because they have a few die-hard conservatives like Sean Hannity. He's on an hour a day, who else have they got? Bill O'Reilly ain't a hard-righter, or even much of a righter at all. Van Susskind?

As folks noted before, supposedly right-siders are in an echo chamber. If only right-siders are listening to those, then they're not reaching anybody else. When folks mention the liberal/mainstream news media, they're talking about the news that goes out to the general public, undecideds and so on. FoxNews and talk radio may have a large share of right-siders, but how much of a share do they have of everyone else?

None of which reach the levels of ABC, NBC, and CBS. Or major newspapers.

FoxNews has a larger share of the cable audience. That's not the definition of "Mainstream Media."

Let's not sugarcoat it: we got our teeth kicked in on Tuesday. Sure, we added governorships and held our ground in the House, but we went backwards in the Senate and lost to an out-of-touch, incompetent, petty man who centered his campaign around Mitt Romney's bank account and Big Bird. We didn't get beaten by Bill Clinton in a great economy; we got beaten by another Michael Dukakis in the midst of a terrible economy. On the upside, if people have ever wondered what Jimmy Carter's second term would have looked like, then they're about to find out.
