CNN's viewership has dropped to its lowest point since 1991, The New York Daily News reports, while Fox News continues to lead by a wide margin. In the last year, CNN's ratings have dropped about 35% to an average of 446,000 viewers, while Fox News Channel's ratings have only dropped 1% to an average of 1.79 million viewers. MSNBC, the second-most watched news channel, is down 13% to an average of 689,000.

However, CNN's drop in viewership is primarily in the U.S. Internationally, the network continues to hold relatively strong ratings. "Piers Morgan Tonight" and Anderson Cooper's eponymous talk show, "Anderson," have not dropped quite as far as CNN's overall ratings, but they're still on the decline. What news channel do you tune into most often, if any?

    For the few that watch MSNBC, "hey they make up the news," it's yellow journalism at best.

    CNN and local Lafayette, IN news. I quit watching Fox news when Geraldo Rivera gave away troop locations in Iraq. Im not a rocket scientist or even close but that was just plain stupid and he should never be able to get a job ever again as a journalist.

    Buying a newspaper or tuning in to a news show is giving aid and comfort to the enemy. When the MS stops being a mass propaganda organ for the extreme left, maybe I'll change my attitude. (And when FOX stops putting the likes of Juan Williams, Bob Beckel, and Geraldo Rivera in front of me, maybe I'll start watching them, too...)

    I sometimes like to watch all networks and compare their accuracy. It's fun to see who embellishes what stories.. I found that the BBC tells the facts and is undiscriminating.

    from 2003 and President Clinton is directly quoted on both topics so I guess Clinton had it wrong, too.

    Earlier that year, at another point of increased tension between the United States and Iraq, Hussein sought to step up contacts with al Qaeda. On February 18, 1998, after the Iraqis repeatedly refused to permit U.N. weapons inspectors into sensitive sites, President Bill Clinton went to the Pentagon and delivered a hawkish speech about Hussein's weapons of mass destruction and his links to "an unholy axis of terrorists, drug traffickers, and organized international criminals." Said Clinton: "We have to defend our future from these predators of the 21st century. . . . They will be all the more lethal if we allow them to build arsenals of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them. We simply cannot allow that to happen. There is no more clear example of this threat than Saddam Hussein."

    The following day, February 19, 1998, according to documents unearthed in Baghdad after the recent war by journalists Mitch Potter and Inigo Gilmore, Hussein's intelligence service wrote a memo detailing upcoming meetings with a bin Laden representative traveling to Baghdad.

Each reference to bin Laden had been covered with Liquid Paper. The memo laid out a plan to step up contacts between Iraq and al Qaeda. The Mukhabarat, one of Saddam's security forces, agreed to pay for "all the travel and hotel costs inside Iraq to gain the knowledge of the message from bin Laden and to convey to his envoy an oral message from us to bin Laden." The document set as the goal for the meeting a discussion of "the future of our relationship with him, bin Laden, and to achieve a direct meeting with him." The al Qaeda representative, the document went on to suggest, might be "a way to maintain contacts with bin Laden

    I watch BBC on PBS. It is less politically biased and more globally accurate.
