Holiday cheer!!

You all are going to have to hang with me for a little bit. I am going all Willie Nelson on you and going "on the road again." I am off the plantation but thanks to modern technology I can still do my thing. For the next week or so my posts will just come at some odd times, that's all.

Anyway, tis the season of giving, so I hope that you all, like me, are in a giving mood. (Amex, you are welcome.) The Malls are packed and Internet traffic is crawling at a snail's pace because of all the online shopping. (Aren't we supposed to be in a recession?) I guess Santa doesn't care who is president; little Johnny better have a gift from him under the tree come Saturday morning.

I am in the holiday spirit, because, in spite of what the naysayers will try to tell you, things ain't looking so bad here in the land of the [some are]free. The lame duck congress ain't looking so lame; no terror attacks; (knock on wood) the housing market looks like it's picking up; the stock market is up; violent crime and teen pregnancies are down; the unemployment rate is still not good but holding steady, and FOX NEWS ratings are down by almost double digits. Life is good!

Santa, you don't have to bring me anything this Christmas, you have already delivered.

Fox News still dominates. More viewers then CNN and NBC combined, just sayin.

Anyways. Merry Christmas to you and yours Field and thanks for all you do. Especially putting up with us Anons. We will convert you yet.

I heard Progressive/liberals/marxists were going to change the party name again as Speilberg said he wouldnt help them rebrand. This time they are changing the name to Battymen or Bloodclots and we want to get you out before that happens.

Yep, the stock market is up, housing sales are up. In general, confidence is up now that the Republicans won in November. Merry Christmas to everyone, even the sour Marxists.

Field, "FOX NEWS ratings are down by almost double digits. Life is good!"

I think you have had too much holiday cheer. Fox is only down -4% in Total viewers mon-sun. Fox saw growth in primetime by +2% in Total Viewers. And it dominates in A2554, beating CNN and MSNBC combined in primetime and ToTal daytime.

Glenn Beck is the only one down double digits but he still ranks #1at 5PM. That timeslot is no big deal, anyway, unless you have a big talent like Glen Beck that destroys the competition at 5pm.

The women anchors, Greta and Megyn Kelley are up!

Don't know how much you know about survey books but the October book isn't used as much as the November Sweep book. The Nov book is used by advertisers to buy time. So, let's see the stats in November before you claim Fox to be down. I doubt it will be down but will be up or holding steady from last November.

Fox appeals to A2554 more so than the young folks, K12-18, or even A1834.. So who cares?

Anyway, I want you to have a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year, so I won't beat up on you as a Progressive Black Liberal who short on stats, numbers and rationale when it comes to understanding ratings and demographics.

I still love you like a brother during this time of year, even though you are a misguided Progressive Liberal....have a good holiday...PEACE.

Field,

I wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year.

I've just been looking at last night's US ratings, and they are truly pathetic for all concerned. Fox for instance - 1.492 million for Prime Time.

That's just pathetic. Any BBC producer would be fired on the spot if his ratings came in that low - and this in a market one fifth of the size...

It just goes to show how unimportant TV has become in the USA, and how the other media channels place far too much importance on the influence of TV.

I would like to wish Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to Field, his family, and to all contributors.

Even the conservatives.

Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa and Happy New Year to Field and Mrs. Field. Let the Mrs. know that the Obama kool-aid is still quite tasty!

peace, Villager

Merry Christmas and a Happy, Happy New Year!

One Love,

You read the SC Wonkette? Yup your right, America loves it stupid. They also say the teaparty is only 2% of the american population and that Sarah Palin is really a Drag Queen. No doubt this is the Liberal "Educated version" where you get all your er...hem...knowledge.

Splains a lot about you Ricky it really does.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year even if you liberals want to ban Christmas.

Of course it is silly. Thanks to planned parenthood and taxpayer paid abortions. Did you forget you were liberal and helped make this happen?

@anon 1958. Are you conservatives really this dense? I know it was rhetorical. http://iowaindependent.com/49303/study-finds-fox-news-viewers-more-likely-to-be-misinformed-on-basic-political-facts
Does this site meet your approval? Dear god man, it was a story about the study done by the University of Maryland. Oh yeah, that's right conservatives only believe Glenn Beck and studies done by Jesus U. Sure, Planned Parenthood does a good job of educating teens about birth control but I guess only teen moms like the conservative hero Bristol Palin should have a reliable opinion about birth control. I hope you were joking because anyone this stupid should not be allowed to walk on their own. Dear god, the stupid...it burns.

Merry Christmas from one 'Field' to another. God Bless.

Happpy Holididays to all of you. -Yes, even my wingnut friends.- I love all of you like the brother I never had. :)

I love the ongoing debate here in A-merry-ca.In the end, history will show that we -the left- are on the right side.

BTW, a special holiday hello to the President of Anon. Inc.
I am enjoying the civility and current truce with your people.:)

Merry Christmas to the Field family. And thank you for this wonderful site.

Well, there's a place for you over here on the right side if you ever decide to start thinking instead of feeling. We'll save you a seat.

Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays to you and your FN! May your FN behavior continue in 2011 and beyond. Thanks again for the honor of being named blog I'm feeling. It was the best Christmas present ever!

absolutely and less unwed births and less taxpayer lifelong leeches. Thats what I said.

By they way, you can see a Doctor about that burning and itching problem. Probably a cycle of penicillin will do ya. Providing it isnt something more serious like aids (god forbid)

Good Luck with that. The Anon group will be praying for you.

PilotX said...

Nah anon, never had sex with a Palin girl. Just incredibly stupid people make me burn. 98% of the Republican party for example.

Carolyn said...

Season's Greetings Field and I wish you and your family the best and may we have a minimally stressful New Year.

I agree with your assessment of how the glass is half full instead "empty" at this point. I need to hear that given that there is still much suffering. Papa Moon and I have doubled donations to the local food bank and rescue union for the holidays.

There are more families now in line for dinner and there are more children who would love to get presents this year. Unfortunately, on the top of their lists are the essentials that many of us take for granted. When they see that doll or truck; the smile widens!

I love the classic Christmas songs,however, it's not Christmas without The Temptations Christmas Album. Let's "Give Love on Christmas" (and daily). Also,let us not forget to fill the food BOXES; so they can eat after the holidays.

Field, "BTW, a special holiday hello to the President of Anon. Inc.

Thank you, Mr. Field. As you know, this has been a banner year for Anon Inc on FN blog. Let me say that being President of Anon Inc is no easy task keeping up with all the anon characters in our corporation. In addition, I must weed out all of the Stormfront and New Black Panthers trying to pass as a members of Anon, Inc. Confidentially-between you and me-let me say that sometimes I hate this fucking job.

In any case, we made it through another year and I am most pleased that you are pleased with Anon, Inc. Your special holiday wish to me has been uplifting and much appreciated. Thank you, and I look forward to working with you in 2011.
May you and Mrs. Field have a wonderful XMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Man are you obsessed with Palin or what? You bring her up each and every time no matter how disconnected or irrelavent. As if someone like you could even have a shot. The servants wouldnt let you in the door.

I understand, really I do. It's you that is the smart one and the majority of the successful adult world are the stupid ones. Otherwise you wouldn't belong to the "dumbocrat tax and spend our policies are proven to fail yet we insist more money will fix it because you are racist and lets ignore reality disneyland party.

You know the party that insists if you change a name then the problem "poof" magically disappears because of its new politically correct name.

In example. You think healthcare is expensive now? Just wait until its free.

Have A Merry Christmas.

Ah don't worry. When we learn to drive we start making all left turns, then eventually we mature and get proficient and wind up going in the Right direction. If only it didnt take you four turns in the wrong direction to get onto the right path. But again dont worry it will be all LEFT behind you once you straighten up and drive right.

Fuaxnoise is a pebble in a puddle of piss. It only influences the gullible who'd be off on some kind of wackadoodle goose-chase even if Bekker'd offed himself in '99 like he'd wanted to, Ailes had already melted into a pool of putrid puss as he's destined to, and Murdoch was still Viagra-banging teenyboppers in Austrailia.

If Fauxnoise boobs are any kind of real threat, the republic's already gone and it's time to pick a genial tyrant.

Oh Yeah, happy holidays all of you, my fellow argumentative souls, celebrate something -even if it's just seeing loved ones for a meal. Life is wonderful. Especially when you consider the alternative. Like this guy.http://goshennews.com/breakingnews/x1199050392/Kayaker-eaten-by-crocodile

Never said I was a Dem. Nah, anon I believe tax cuts will solve the world's problems just like all other brilliant conservatives. Happy holidays anon, let's move on to a real topic.

Why must you try to put down any Anon on Xmas Eve when you should be showing the love of Christ to ALL?

Do you have any feelings during the Xmas Holidays or are you just a low-down atheist?

Dave said...

Wow, a Christmas truce in the FN comment threads -- who woulda thunk it? Merry Christmas from a faithful lurker.

PilotX said...

Yep, I'm an atheist. Jury's still out about the low down part.
