“Five Call Letters & No Viewers”

caffertyaugust10.jpgHalf of you have probably already seen this. But here’s Jack Cafferty‘s made-for-TVNewser comment about cable news networks from the first 15 minutes of The Situation Room:

“Audiences for the three shows have been declining for several years, one the reasons, of course, the ascension of the cable news networks, from CNN, which is arguably the best of the lot — I have to say that — it’s in my contract — to those wild-eyed miscreants over there at the F-word network, to the network with five call letters and no viewers. Wolf, you could be on the FBI’s 10 most-wanted list, host a nightly program on MSNBC and be perfectly safe. No one would have any idea where you were. Ask Tucker Carlson.
