    President Obama’s State of the Union Address was the lowest rated of his presidency, down 12 percent from last year’s speech.

    Obama drew 37.75 million viewers last night on 14 networks and cable news channels, according to the website TVbythenumbers, which tracks television ratings.

    During his first speech to a joint session of Congress in February 2009, Obama drew 52.4 million viewers. His first official State of the Union Address on January 2010 attracted 48 million and last year’s SOTU had 42.8 million.

    Though down from prior SOTU addresses, last night’s ratings were higher than Obama’s two September speeches to a joint session of Congress, on health care and the economy.

    His jobs speech last September speech garnered 31.5 million viewers, according to TVbythenumbers, which was slightly lower than his Sept. 2009 health care speech to Congress, which drew 32.1 million viewers.

    You keep posting ridiculous "stories" from sources that have no credibility or even a pretense of journalism and then you wonder why so few take you seriously on the areas in which you claim expertise. icon_lol.gif

    Right. Don't look at the Washington Times when you can get your news from the comedy channel.

    Again you're projecting. So few? Who are you using as references - your band of liberal crew who amongst you count an avowed racist who others won't denounce? lol. Good luck trying to push that storyline.

    As for stories... are you saying they got their facts wrong?

    Oh that's right, they didn't so you are left with flailing over "my" sources.

    The Daily Show is not a vanity paper that no one reads or takes seriously. In fact, outside of the "Rush Belt" Jon Stewart has greater reach and impact than Rev. Moon's toilet roll.

    But please do try and find fault with what Stewart says. Please find one factual inaccuracy.

    I don't watch it. I did see an interview with O'Reilly and Stewert said he wasn't a journalist, and I get my comedy from other places.

    No one is claiming Stewart is a journalist. He's a pundit/comedian but that doesn't mean his facts are in question. In fact, people who watch The Daily Show are better informed about the issues than those who watch the "news" channel Faux.

    We know about the studies including all the non-elites in flyover country. But what is clear closer to home in RJ is the conservatives are generally better informed than the liberals.

    Right... Even though most of you can't get basic historical facts correct.

    You are one of the most self-deluded people I've ever encountered. I used to think you were a fair guy with a particular bent, but the closer we get to the election and the worse the Republicans do, the more in denial you become.
