Which explains why this show (apparently) airs at 3am ... how?

BTW - got a link for someone - anyone - at Fox saying  "Make your ratings. No excuses"   ? 

Again - if y'all would just stop making this about Fox and start holding people personally accountable for their words ...

Imagine if this was a show on MSNBC or CNN.  Where would your (insert-network) bleatings be then?
 
I don't believe I'm bleating....but I did ask what kind of show this was supposed to be. Satire? Humor?

Also, I think it's a mistake to think that programs on at any time of day don't live and die on ratings. It's kinda how programming decisions are made.

Given the bit you bolded, are you taking exception to the theory that news networks are as interested or MORE interested in entertainment that informing the public?  I'm pretty sure that's what you are saying, but I wanted to be sure...

If you have some conclusive proof that Fox management authorized this particular slam against the Canadian military, by all means, trot it out.

Years ago, when i was consulting for GE medical, there was a rule for the managers:  you made your numbers every quarter.  No excuses.  You failed, you lost your job.  Period.

One quarter, one of the managers wasn't making his number.  He was sweating it.  So on March 27th, he sold all the repair inventory.  He made his number.  No matter that all the other divisions that needed repair parts were screwed.  He made his number.

Fox management says, "Make your ratings.  No excuses."  What happens after that is not their problem.    They can disclaim any responsibility.  So long as Mr. Murdock is happy with the numbers.

So no...they're not, um, directly involved...

Since I wasn't trying to say anything about Fox management, can I rephrase things to say that "we know that Fox staffers often make stuff up just to excite the base"? Can I, huh?

BTW, I'm sure that Rupert and his managers are pleased to have you standing ready to defend them.

*edit*  It's not likely that Fox management will take responsibility for anything. That's why Hannity, Beck and O'Reilly get away with the stuff they do.

For some reason I stayed up late last night and actually clicked on the show going back and forth between a thing about Stonehenge on NGC and Red Eye during commercials.  I still haven't a clue what its about and iffen I never see it again it will be fine with me.  I guess sometimes you dig way too deep to fill an hour of airtime.  A test pattern would be preferred.

Probably a comedic look at the news, or something. With Fox you never know. It could be a serious effort at news in the late hours of the day.

I wonder what the reaction would be if a Canadian show made comments like that about the US military?

The ignorance these bozos showed is really disappointing. But why are we surprised, we know that Fox makes stuff up just to excite the base.

She is definitely one of the strangest people on that network.  She always seemed to have an infinitely deep well of hate to irrigate the crops! 

Now she will have plenty of time to go spend with her hoard of children.
