Fox Twitter Hashtag Backfires

On Tuesday Fox & Friends asked Twitter users to post things they were over with the hashtag #OverIt2014. They started with Fake Journalist Barbie tweeting, “I’m over attacks against Christianity.” This worked out about how you might expect.  Gawker reported some of the snarky responses, and far more are now up:

You get the idea. The responses are continuing to come in at a rapid rate.

    So it’s odd, really, that when it comes to viewing stats Fox regularly wipes the floor with all the other news networks.  CNN and MSNBC are nearly going tits up!  Damn, those American viewers are a contrary lot!

    Only a small percentage of Americans watch any of these “news” networks. Of those who watch, it is not surprising that a large share watch Fox. The American conservative movement is an authoritarian cult based upon a large body of misinformation and denial of actual facts. Conservatives prefer to watch a network which reinforces their beliefs, and repeats the misinformation they base their beliefs on, while avoiding true news sources.

    There is far less reason for people to watch CNN and MSNBC. CNN is a poor news source, concentrating on the sensational story of the day. Liberals are not likely to spend much time watching MSNBC, preferring to seek out good sources of objective information to guide their beliefs. That’s also why Air America flopped while conservative talk radio does so well here.
