Kathleen Parker's War on Math
Kathleen Parker shows off the chops it takes to be a star columnist at the Orlando Sentinel:
And the media wonder why newspaper circulations are dropping and why Fox News dominates television ratings over the networks and other cable programs.
For the week of November 28th through December 4th, NBC Nightly News averaged 10.5 milliion nightly viewers, ABC World News Tonight averaged 9.1 million, and CBS Evening News averaged nearly 8 million.
And Fox News? On Tuesday, December 6th, its top-rated show, The O'Reilly Factor, attracted 2.6 million viewers. Its second-highest-rated show, Hannity & Colmes, attracted 1.8 million viewers.
How can you be a media professional and not know that network news still beats cable news, ratingswise? Somebody ought to ask Howard Kurtz too. — GREG BEATO
