    The dominoes start falling. Network news is limping along, many of the cable outlets are struggling as well, CNBC, because it is a subsidiary of NBC just got bought as well, MSNBC has been a dead, stinking fish for some time. Please somebody fire that nitwit Keith olbermann, what a turd he is. Who would take that guy seriously other than a complete, died in the wool communist or socialist. Who's next, ABC, CBS, CNN? One thing is for sure, Glen Beck fan of Dec 1 at 5:38pm, it WILL NOT be the network of record, FOX NEWS!!! We have to have somewhere to go for the straight news. Congratulations FOX for becoming the news source of record for the nation. I am loving the demise of the NBC turkey!!! Neeeexxxxxttt!

    So, you are saddened by the loss of one of yours? I am so sorry, NBC was once a golden station that listened to your hooey until their ratings fell like a rock. OK, you go by glen Beck Liars club,,,hmmmmm, can you give me one lie he has told and I will email him for a response. You know, Glen has that phone, just waiting on the liberals to cite one lie. Its a lonely job, no one ever calls....Sorry, its time to transform the media back into a fair and balanced agency. You lost, I know, you feel bad about it but that is how business goes some time. Now, go get some more koolaid, I think its cold now. Oh, I produce Obama Snake Oil, the best, can even get a liar elected to president. Try some today!

    Keep drinking that Faux koolaide...or should I say "snake oil". Somehow Faux is the only "real" news network...and everyone else wrong? That's what Karl Rove want you to believe. KEEP ON BELIEVING! PALIN IN 2012!

    Well, when your ratings are in the tank, your news doesn't inform you and shelters Obamas actions, time to sell. Hopefully, this means we will get "news" again from NBC. Comcast will clean house of liberal doctrine and try to put the network back in the limelight as it once was. I bet every employee at NBC will see how a conservative network cleans house. From what is being posted on the internet, they will not be the filters of the story, they will be the ones getting out before Fox does....hmmmmmm, should be interresting.
