It was bound to happen. You can only lie to people for so long, and the American people are beginning to say ENOUGH! A recent poll shows that top conservative radio talk shows are loosing their audience in droves!
The just-released Arbitron repor treveals that a lot less people are listening to right-wing talk radio.With a lull in ratings since November, RushLimbaugh had a 3.0 share of listeners for his radio time slot, which is a 33% slide from October and from last April, reports Crain’s Business.
Meanwhile, The Sean Hannity Show was reported to be down 28% from its peak numbers in the fall.
And let’s not forget the massive exodus from the Glenn Beck show. So bad was this exodus, that Fox News has decided not to renew his contract. But this report shows that the entire Fox network is loosing viewers;
Glenn Beck suffered the biggest drop, losing 30% of his audience compared to the first quarter last year. But he wasn’t alone. Top ranking O’Reilly lost 14% of his audience, Sean Hannity, up a spot from 2010, lost 19%, and Bret Baier, who pushed Beck out of the top three, lost 13%.
Greta Van Susteren, who has been bleeding viewers to Anderson Cooper this month, is down 22.86%.
All in all Fox News actually lost 21% of its primetime audience during the quarter.
What’s the old saying? You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t continually lie and expect Americans to continually buy into the dumbness. Well–that’s not exactly what they say but you catch my drift.
