DK: MSNBC - The Only Gainer In Cable News. Fox - The Biggest Loser
Daily Kos, KingOneEye: "MSNBC has beaten the competition in terms of audience growth consistently for the last twelve months. So it should come as no surprise that MSNBC's tally for 2006 shows not only the highest gain over 2005, but the only gain amongst cable news networks.
As usual, it was Keith Olbermann's Countdown that fueled the increase. Countdown was up 60% in total viewers and 67% in the 25-54 demo. Keith's nemesis, Bill O'Reilly, can still boast about being the number one program on cable news, but those footsteps he hears are not the pitter-patter of the Culture Warrior Youth."
