Home Celebrity Fox’s Greta van Susteren, All of MSNBC, Beaten By Fake News Daily...

Here’s an episode they could address on “The Newsroom”: what happens when a “real” news program is beaten by two fake news shows? That’s what’s happening right now. Fox News’s Greta van Susteren, who’s on at 10pm, is being beaten by Comedy Central’s “Daily Show” with John Stewart and Stephen Colbert– two fake news shows. GvS is being trounced.

And for that matter, so is all of MSNBC and CNN, by two humor shows that send up the news but at the same time sort of deliver it. Of course, the other Fox News shows–O’Reilly, Hannity, etc– are ahead of the comedy offerings.

And dead last among all these offerings is CNN’s Piers Morgan, which has grown on me over the last few months. CNN is slightly down as it retools, but it’s too early to make any evaluations there. MSNBC’s entire slate– Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, et al — are several hundred thousand viewers behind Stewart and Colbert every night.

And Greta? It just could be that after being battered for three or four hours by the Fox News pontificating, one more show– Greta’s–is just too much. Instead, viewers are turning to comedy.

  1. CNN, ABC, NBC, MSNBC (Fox the worst) are ALL fake news, or at very least peppered highly with lots of false data. They are all owned and controlled by 3 huge war profiteering giants (used to be six now consolidated) purposely keeping the American populace in an ignorant, false flag state of panic about “terrorist”, tremendously over hyped or fabricated “oppression” in Iran, Syria or other places “over there”…..to get the psychotic war machine greased by lightening speed “breaking news” on bullshit. There are likely far more comments reflecting reality on Comedy Central and Newsroom than ANY of these stations. Sadly, people are glued to main stream media thinking they are abreast of “current events”. Same thing with our history books…..Nobody can learn true American history by any history book claiming we went to WWII to “stop Hitler” or that Pearl Harbor was a “sneak attack” that was totally non-provoked. ditto with anything happening over past decade, with our illegal wars for profit in wrong direction. What our people have come to believe and sustain is what has brought USA down to ranking 110th in global peace today. Our internal culture is very unhealthy and unsustainable.

  2. Since Greta is just too much Fox news after three or four hours…. what does it say about MSNBC? Nobody bothers to watch at all? What a childish article. Why not just write that no shows on MSNBC can rival Comedy Central and just one on Fox can’t? Oh, I see …. cause you’re trying to look cool.
