As for the explosion in blogs, online papers, etc. there are many sources showing their increase in viewership. I did not think this was a point of contention for anyone. If you'd like I can dig up some examples though, just let me know
If you're talking about me, I'm not sure how me being curious about a data source for this merits your assertion that I jumped to any conclusion.
I was not talking about you, I was talking about the OP concluding that because of a drop in CNN viewership there must be less liberals around. As for the data source for declining viewership of mainstream media I will post as soon as I can. I've been doing all posts via my iPhone while traveling.
