"FOX's Brilliant Business Move: Ignore Obama"

The Business Insider has this:

It seems Fox made the smart move by deciding not to air president Obama's 100th-day press conference. The network beat every other broadcaster, all of which were carrying the president's speech, in the ratings. Fox's new episode of Lie To Me drew 7.9 million viewers. Fox also got millions in advertising revenue by running a normal TV program instead of Obama's commercial-free address. In second place for the 8 p.m. hour was NBC's airing of Obama's speech, which pulled in 6.7 million viewers. Are people finally getting bored with Obama's frequent speeches? . . .


The question is why Fox was the only network not to cover this (of course, Fox News covered it).

What I don't understand is why the nation didn't ignore this pinko parasite back in Jan. of 08...

Seems to me that all of the major networks were airing "Lie to Me"....

If the concept of overexposure in the media has any validity, it must surely apply to Obama by now.

Male bovine fecal matter is no substitute for facts, yet the sheeple fell for it all.

Now we all pay the price for weakness, and propaganda.
