With the Romney campaign, as it was with Reagan's, welfare is the weaponized code word. It's the GOP's 21st century Southern strategy deployed to stir up resentment, anger, and yes, hatred.
July ratings are now in and Fox News viewers continue to outnumber the viewers of the three other cable news channels by a tiny margin.
I do not ordinarily write about the ratings until the end of the month, but Friday's massacre has been reflected in last week's ratings (Saturday and Sunday will be reflected in this week's) and they deserve some comment.
In the past three elections, I have forecast the winners accurately by comparing the number of viewers watching Fox News with viewers watching the liberal combination. In all three of the cases, I got it right.
The program, which was filled with smart dialogue, internal conflict and self-righteousness, was a bit misleading about what happens behind the scenes at a cable news network.
The FCC should require the cable news networks to drop the word "news" from their names. When all you have is a parade of pundits mouthing talking points hour after hour, that's not news. That's entertainment.
While it may seem unconventional to leave a rapidly growing political cable show on the eve of a presidential election, to me, the timing couldn't be better.
I launched both CNN and Headline News, and I never believed the days would come when more people watched our tabloid version rather than what was supposed to be the quality product.

NPR and Jon Stewart's Daily Show came out on top as the most informative, making the schadenfreude all the more delicious for Fox-haters, and the twisting of the liberal knife-in-the-back all the more painful for Fox fans. But how did it come to that?
Recently I was introduced to Jefferson Smith, an inspired, young elected official, who's now running for mayor of Portland, Ore., and aims to embody the future of what politics should be.
Within the context of illogic and paranoia that has at times defined Barack Obama's opponents, it is tempting to write off those who make the most strident claims against him. But we shouldn't be afraid to ask big, fundamental questions about the conduct of the administration and its officials.
April 2012 was CNN's worst month in a decade and the other networks all suffered a miserable month as well. I think the answer is right before our very eyes. All these cable news stations now officially suck.
CNN ought to do whatever it can to cut April out of the calendar. Last year was bad enough, but this year CNN's audience shrunk by 21% over the total day and 16% in primetime.
