If the message or content of the show is offensive, "quality" viewers will abandon the program and quality advertisers will follow. I don't know what is advertised on Jersey Shore but I'm sure it isn't Ameritrade. Probably Four Loko.

Just using Stewart because it was the topic show.  Not because of its values.

Then you also know that advertisers will pull their support when they disagree with a show's message or become pressured because of the threat of a boycott because of a show's message.

No I do not watch Jon Stewart on a regular basis, but IIRC he maintains that he is only a comedy show and never tries to portray his show as real news.  That is what I had in mind when I made my remark.

Q:  Do you ever watch a show and consider who the advertisers are that support the show you are watching ?

I channel surf back and forth between CNN, MSNBC and Fox sometimes just to see which advertisers their shows have in common and which are different.  It matters to me on a certain level.  I want to know who is paying for what I see.

I'm guessing you never watch the show because Jon Stewart says this almost every time he has a politician or a mainstream reporter on. Except for the Madison Avenue part. That makes no sense.

Kurt, you focused on one aspect of the article. How about the rest? How many times have you quoted Fox, and now you can see how you were being manipulated.

 

I'm not going to be doing a blow by blow.  Bush stole the election was the heart and sole of everything leading up to that point.

As a news junkie who cut my teeth on Murrow, Cronkite, Huntley and Brinkley and McNeil/Lehrer from when it began as a half hour and Robin was young, to the present, I don't believe I am easily misled.

I can discern crap and read between the lines.  I rarely quote Fox, more the people on Fox.  However, I did go to Fox for the Japanese Tsunami and Nuclear disaster and am quite pleased to say that I was extremely well informed.  I did erroeously report a major aftershock that they put up as breaking news, but later found out that that was an error and did correct myself here.

Fox is my primary source politically, but I do not believe everything I hear, just as I began to fade away from McNeil/Lehrer some 10 years ago.  When someone like David Brooks is put up as a hardcore right winger for balance, well there goes their credibility.  Saying that Brooks is hard core right wing is like saying that Obama is a centrist.

And don't let me get started on George Will. 

I'll just quietly say that if we still had a draft, there would be a whole hell of a lot more people paying attention to what is really going on in this world of ours.  And someone like Obama would never have been elected, because people would have actually scrutinized the man, rarher than giving him an Ivy League pass and electing him for the sake of an "historic occasion".

But that's just me ...
