Damn Lies and Statistics. You would think that Palins program was down by twenty percent against CNN or maybe MSNBC but No! The Left didn’t say. Real American Stories beat MSNBC, CNN, and HLN combined and had 2 Million views double that of any of the other networks top rated programs in any time slot.
They compared Palins program with On the Record with Greta Van Susteren. Palin was indeed down 20% from last Thursdays OTL but if you look further all programs this week are down over last week. But that is how the left rolls.
Like the Time MSNBC said they were Number 1. What they didn’t tell you is they were Number 1 among toddlers from 2-5 years old. It is the E-Trade crowd.
While coming in first in its time period — beating the Total Viewer average of the 10pm programs on MSNBC, CNN and HLN combined — FNC’s “Real American Stories with Sarah Palin” was down substantially versus the performance of “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” last Thursday as well as that program’s Thursday average for the month of March. “Real American Stories” delivered 2.073 million Total Viewers and 472k A25-54 viewers, down 10% versus last Thursday among Total Viewers and down 28% in A25-54. For all Thursdays in March 2010, the “Stories” premiere was down 10% among Total Viewers and down 19% in A25-54.
