An update on Herr Olbermahn's call for a boycott of Fox News, announced on July 1:
If there is a solution, it is perhaps an indirect boycott. It is probably your experience, as it has been mine, that stores, bars, restaurants, waiting rooms often show Fox News on their televisions. Don't write a letter, don't make a threat, just get up and explain, if they will not change the channel, leave the place and say calmly why it is you are taking your business elsewhere.... Fox News Channel will never restrain itself from incitement to murder and terrorism, not until its profits begin to decline, when its growth stops. So not so much a boycott here as a quarantine, because this has got to stop.
So how's Olby doing? Has he got the eeevil Fox News on the run? The power of Keith Olbermann and his societal influence is clearly demonstrated by comparing the Fox News numbers from June 1 with the latest ratings available (August 18):
Monday, June 1: quarantine declared
Fox News: 1,323,000 viewers total day
Fox News: 2,721,000 viewers primetime
Latest ratings: Tuesday, August 8th
Fox News: 1,593,000 viewers total day...270,000 viewers GAINED
Fox News: 2,988,000 viewers primetime...276,000 viewers GAINED
By the way, don't bring up Oralmann's portion of the MSNBC schedule if you happen to run into him at the ball park:
June 1: MSNBC: 1,097,000 viewers primetime
August 18: MSNBC: 970,000 viewers primetime...127,000 viewers LOST
The quarantine marches on!
