42. This makes me hopeful....

Trying not to read too much into this since, as previously stated, in cable ratings all is relative. I do think however, that if this trend continues it must be taken as a sign that the GOP's propaganda machine, that has been so very successful at dangerously misinforming so many conservatives is losing at least some of its power

Sadly however, this may very well also mean that Fox News and Conservative talk pundits will ratchet up the crazy to new, un before seen levels.

I dont know if you guys living in blue states fully grasp the epidemic that is Fox News. If you would indulge me and keep reading i will show you just a quick example to express this point.

A good friend of mine text me just the other day and said that he'd been reading Glenn Beck's newest book, "Agenda 21." He said, "you don't even realize what you're supporting, don't come crying to me when the change you voted for isn't what you thought it would be."

To which I replied, "is this like when you told me back in September that you hoped I enjoyed my 1 term President?" He did not reply. He never does. The second I negate something he heard from Fox News he shuts down. I believe this is what most of them do because, how else can one explain their complete disregard for facts and the truth and their unrelenting refusal to be reasoned with.

In closing Fox News and those other wack jobs like Beck have created an alternate reality for extreme conservatives in which they truly believe their way of life is under attack by a tyranical Muslim from Kenya who is hell bent on implementing his socialistic agenda. And that's my intelligent friends.

So yes, if Fox's rating are declining, it is definitely cause for celebration.
