"A wholly owned subsidiary of the Republican party?"

Yet, somehow, it attracts the most balanced viewership:

Wow, I wonder why this viewership is so .... balanced? Why do you think that is, Perry? Geez -- CNN's viewership is highly skewed, followed closely by MSDNC, er, MSNBC.

What's most telling is that Fox viewership is comprosed of 6% of people who are Donkey Kong.

A balanced viewership does not necessarily reflect that Fox News' programming is balanced.

For example, I tune in Rush on a daily basis, certainly not because his presentations are balanced, or even honest and accurate. However, he does represent the talking points of the far right, of which I like to keep informed.

Interestingly, these data show me that Dems (and Inds) are much more likely to take in a variety of opinions than the Repubs.

Moreover, noteworthy to me is that only 21% of the Repubs choose to watch The News Hour, a very informative presentation of many sides of the main issues of the day, not to mention their excellent special reports.

Stop begging, Perry. It's so sad.
