[VIDEO] Fiorina Responds to The View: ‘I Am Tired of Being Insulted by Liberal Feminists’ 

“There is nothing more threatening to the liberal media in general, and Hillary Clinton in particular, than a conservative woman. So of course there’s a double standard.” 

Carly Fiorina responded to being mocked by the hosts of The View on Fox News Sunday this morning by saying conservative women are a big threat to liberals.


“And conservative women from Sarah Palin to Michele Bachmann to Carly Fiorina are long used to this. It will not stop me. It will not scare me and maybe, the ladies of ‘The View,’ if I come back on again, let’s see if they have the guts to say that to my face.”

More People Watched ‘NCIS’ than the Democratic Debate


The Dems’ ratings also couldn’t top the 15.7 million viewers who tuned in to watch the fourth episode of the season for CBS CBS drama NCIS

Tom Huddleston Jr. reports: Hillary Clinton was widely declared the winner of Tuesday night’s debate, but in terms of ratings, the Democrats lost to the GOP … and NCIS.

Hosted by CNN TWX and Facebook FB , the first Democratic debate of the 2016 election season averaged 15.3 million total viewers, according to Nielsen’s numbers. That marked a new ratings record for Democratic debates, but it still fell well short of the GOP’s numbers.

The first GOP debate aired on Fox News in August and pulled in a record-breaking 24 million viewers. Last month’s follow-up on CNN pulled in roughly 23 million, which was a record for CNN.

Debate Clocks 15.3M Viewers For CNN



…Last night’s debate, while a whopper for CNN and the Dems, still falls short of the 22.9 million viewers who’d watched CNN’s three-hour-plus GOP debate in mid September. That event set two records: biggest audience in CNN’s 30-year history and the longest presidential debate ever. And that debate’s overall crowd did not match the 24M who’d sat glued to the first GOP face-off in August on Fox News Channel, which is that network’s biggest audience ever. The FNC crowd also is the biggest nonsports audience ever for cable news.


Who knows how many more viewers would have tuned in last night had Biden made a Loretta Young entrance on the stage in Las Vegas to add much-needed drama. That thought of what might have been, ratings-wise, might explain in part why CNN on-air talent this morning chastised Biden for being a no show….(read more)
