I have a question for the media as the assault
on contraceptives for women is being waged by a overwhelmingly male Congress. Are our taxpayer
dollars being used to pay for their Viagra for the
old men in Congress ?

Man, March could be a really rough month for
CNN. For the 1st day of March, MSNBC looks
strong. Check out the ratings on TV Newser.
Rachel Maddow could have a really big month.
She got more than 400 thousand in the demo.

The decision to have nothing but pundits for
politics on 360 is hurting the show. Where are
the real reporters ? As a result The Last Word is
now topping 360 in 18-34 year olds. Only CNN
would mess up their best show. I have taken it
off the DVR. If 360 is all about pundits. I don't
care to watch the show. I don't watch 360 for
pundits. 360 used to be different . I can't take
the doggone pundits anymore. I'm mad at 360
so I am not watching for awhile. Originally Raw
Politics worked when it was Tom Foreman, John
King, Joe Johns & Candy Crowley. Why were they
booted off of 360 in favor of annoying talk ?

There is a very high stakes game being played and
CNN is not a major player. It is game on between
MSNBC & FNC. Adjustments are being made at
FNC to battle MSNBC. FNC is adding a 5 AM hour
and a change is coming to dayside. Neither is
concerned with CNN. On Thursday, Morning Joe,
The Last Word & Rachel Maddow were close in the
demo. The dayside change at CNN won't matter.
The battle is between FNC & MSNBC. CNN defaulted
with Starting Point and Out Front. CNN needs to
get itself together. It might already be too late.

The Kaj Larsen report on Narco Wars is what
CNN needs to do more of. I do have 1 criticism.
Why not let the reporters front their stories. It
just does not work with hosts. It slows the show
down. It should be more like Discovery. Just move
from 1 story to the next.

You know how CNN has those little gadgets they give a room full of uncommitted voters during a debate to gauge their reactions to each candidate? And then during breaks the correspondent asks them questions about their reactions and how they are feeling towards each candidate. They should do the same thing to themselves, I believe they are really out of touch on what their viewers would like to see.

CNN needs to hire Aisha Tyler. Rachel is rising
and that means TLW will go up as well. I'll bet
that Rachel's increase in viewership is due to
female viewers, who cable news largely ignores.
She comes across as smart but entertaining. She
has been talking about reproductive rights for
quite some time. She is right only a man would
thing birth control pills are only used to prevent
pregnancy. Maybe now that Rush has apologized,
maybe CNN will wake up. Women are the majority
of Americans, voters and shoppers. Even if dad
goes to the store he buys the brands that mom
wants. Advertisers realize this and most will not
come back to Rush because they will hear it
from their wives and daughters.
