Re: Trump Mentally Ill Big Topic This Week

I will grant you this Jill Stein story - Glenn Greenwald has little credibility with me, however and I’m not sure I’l buy his claim (without any evidence, as you noted). However, once again this is a statement by a GUEST on an opinion show. Google “Guests lying on Fox News” and see how many hits you...

Please document your claim that NBC News falsified a news story and provide evidence. Thanks. https://www.politifact.com/punditfact/tv/nbc/false/ This website highlights things said by "pundits" - opinion hosts or guests - on NBC that were proven not to be true. It includes comments by Joe Scarboro...

Saying it doesn't make it true. Please document your claim that NBC News falsified a news story and provide evidence. Thanks.

Re: Ratings are out!

I noticed Nielsen is moving about 40 to 50 diary markets to "continuous monthly measurement." Is this the same technique that was used in major & large markets in the pre-PPM days? Actually, this is a change in processing only (adding a few more diaries each month, but no real increase in sample si...

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

How many 54+'s go to bars? Trendy restaurants? Get insured by Geico's minimalist insurance? Sure, they have some expendable income, but soft AC is too far into the "Medicare Crowd" to have potential advertisers be interested. Luxury Advertisers are fewer and farther in between. Let me play devil's ...

Re: Ratings are out!

There's no meters outside the top 50 markets. TC/Petoskey/Cadillac is a diary market, with 2 - 12 week periods of diaries processed into a report every 6 months. So this report represents diary collection from Fall 2018 and Spring 2019, combined into one report. I haven't seen any actual numbers, bu...

Re: Ratings are out!

And the defender of all that is public radio wrote:WNMC never appears in the book but traditionally pulls about half a share below ICA news radio.
Even tried the Radio Ratings Consortium books? I thought they showed up there. Is Interlochen subscribing to the full book now? I think they changed the rules for public stations recently.

Re: Ratings are out!

New ratings just released: https://ratings.radio-online.com/content/arb335 Just 56% of listeners go to subscribing stations! I would guess Trish's stations would combine for around 13-15% of listeners and other non-subscribers/out of market stations combine for around 5-10%, so that would mean 20-2...

Warm 105, WWWM Sylvania/Toledo.
"Toledo You found us! Your at work station, Warm 105"
" Does another station make you feel like you are drowning, in music that's too loud for the office or around the house?, make the switch to warm 105."
It will never happen... makes too much sense.

Re: John & Paul Trump Moment-Tells Woman To Go Back To Where She Came From

This is absolutely the most ludicrous thread on this board... Feel free to defend the President, others have different views. I'd be more than happy to discuss policies and programs, but am not interested in name calling. I disagree with many of this President's policies, which doesn't make me anyth...

Re: Can A Statement Be Racist If It's True?

Attacking Elijah Cummings because of problems in Baltimore is like blaming a bad hamburger on Ronald McDonald. Cummings is only one of 435 reps, and they need 1/2 of those plus 51 Senators to get anything accomplished via their jobs. Does Baltimore need help? Probably. Does the President's comments ...

Can we get back to predictions? Tremendous Democratic turnout in 2020 (Google it to find a link that you like, but both New York Times and Washington Examiner are saying it) won't make a bit of difference in the Presidential election because of the Electoral College (more voters in New York and Cali...
