    So 8.6 is higher than 8.8?
    9 is at the same level as 8.6?
    9.2 is at the same level as 9.5?

    Oh, I'm sure it's due to parallax distortion or something in the video lens.....icon_wink.gif

    Has anybody noticed that the lines don't correlate to any of the percentages on the y axis?

    http://www.mediabistro.com/fishbowldc/fox-news-management-fed-up-by-mistakes_b17529 Subject: Quality Control

    We had a mistake on Newsroom today when a wrong book cover went on screen during a guest segment, the kind of thing that can fall through the cracks on any day with any story given the large amount of elements and editorial we run through our broadcasts. Unfortunately, it is the latest in a series of mistakes on FNC in recent months. We have to all improve our performance in terms of ensuring error-free broadcasts. To that end, there was a meeting this afternoon between senior managers and the folks who run the daytime shows in which expectations were reviewed, and the following results were announcedicon_confused.gif Effective immediately, there is zero tolerance for on-screen errors. Mistakes by any member of the show team that end up on air may result in immediate disciplinary action against those who played significant roles in the “mistake chain,” and those who supervise them. That may include warning letters to personnel files, suspensions, and other possible actions up to and including termination, and this will all obviously play a role in performance reviews. So we now face a great opportunity to review and improve on our workflow and quality control efforts. To make the most of that opportunity, effective immediately, Newsroom is going to “zero base” our newscast production. That means we will start by going to air with only the most essential, basic, and manageable elements. To share a key quote from today’s meeting: “It is more important to get it right, than it is to get it on.” We may then build up again slowly as deadlines and workloads allow so that we can be sure we can quality check everything before it makes air, and we never having to explain, retract, qualify or apologize again. Please know that jobs are on the line here. I can not stress that enough. I will review again during our Monday editorial meeting, and in the days and weeks ahead. This experience should make us stronger editorially, and I encourage everyone to invest themselves one hundred and ten percent in this effort.


    Somebody needs to be fired.

    I think it's purposeful like their constantly identifying Republican politicians caught by law enforcement or in a sex or ethics scandal with a (D) after their name.

    It's that "fair and balanced" ideology put in practice

    The second example is pure idiocy on their part which there are plenty of examples

    The first is just FOX using their business model

    Another day, another goof. (This one's rather deep, in a sense...maybe it's not a goof)

    Ha ha ha! Romney just got promoted.

    How could they have manufactured a line graph like the original post. Excel does not make mistakes like these. Did they have to draw it out?

    Even Fox's spreadsheet/graphics software is biased!

    "NH" should be Vermont. Somebody really needs to be fired for making the same mistake twice.

    It's not a case of somebody not knowing how to draw a simple graph.

    It's a case of the Repub propagandizers on Fox "News" simply doing the job they're getting paid fat salaries to do.

    Spinning lying and deliberately misinforming Fox viewers into believing a bunch of false pro-Repub bullshit.

    In other words - it's just business as usual at Fox.

    Guys... didn't you get the memo?

    Fox News Channel is a total spoof on news networks.

    Just like The Colbert Report, only Truthier.

    Absolutely, RickRick.




    LOL!

    You're a perfect case in point to prove my point.

    Brainwashed beyond belief!

    It's a case of the Dem propagandizers on MSNBC simply doing the job they're getting paid fat salaries to do.

    Spinning lying and deliberately misinforming MSNBC into believing a bunch of false pro-Dem bullshit.

    In other words - it's just business as usual at MSNBC.

    Anything else new today?
