Mea culpa, BB.  I missed Megyn's field hockey and BB experience in high school.  Turns out she was an aerobics instructor between the ages of 16 and 26, also. 

Based on the size advantage, I still think Maddow can probably beat up Megyn in the cage but Megyn, based on cardio as a former aerobics instructor might have a chance in the ring, lol.
 
Why do you think Maddow is not better educated, though?

Maddow:
-  Bachelor's in Public Policy at Stanford University in 1994
- Awarded John Gardener Fellowship (Annually 6 are chosen, 3  from Stanford and 3 from UC Berkeley, from graduation seniors to encourage pursuit of careers in public and community service.)
- Awarded Rhodes Scholarship 
- Doctorate in Political Science from Oxford University in 2001

Kelly:
- Bachelor's in Political Science from Syracuse University in 1991 or 1992 (?)
- J.D. (Juris Doctor) from Albany Law School in 1995
--was associate editor of Albany Law Review

Size does not always matter. 

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJs85uTptEI" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJs85uTptEI</a>

They both have graduate degrees.  I view a PhD, medical degree, law degree, etc. as all the same.

Fox News Obliterates The Competition With Election Night Coverage
...more viewers than any competitor...
NORVELL ROSE — NOVEMBER 6, 2014

As the extent of the Democrats midterm massacre continues to be evaluated at federal, state and local levels around the country, the scope of a different election-night outcome is already known — a decisive media victory. And what a victory it was for Fox News.

The cable network’s coverage of the returns literally wiped out the competition — topping even the broadcast networks’ special reports on the midterm results.

One can only imagine that network executives at NBC, CBS and ABC must be wondering what in the world happened…and what’s ahead in their ratings battle with the increasingly dominant cable news giant.

And as for the cable competition for Fox News — judging by election-night audience numbers, it was literally no contest. The ratings for MSNBC and CNN combined didn’t stand up to the Fox News journalistic juggernaut.

Via TV ratings watchdog mediabistro.com:

Fox News Channel was the most-watched network — on broadcast and on cable — during coverage of the midterm elections. Fox News beat CNN and MSNBC in both total viewers and the A25-54 demo, combined during primetime hours.
The New York Times article on the TV ratings, as one might expect, started off with an observation that could be interpreted as trying to diminish the election-night viewer dominance for the Fox News net:

With interest down sharply across the board in television coverage of the midterm elections, Fox News had about as big a night as the Republican Party, drawing the biggest audience not only in cable but also beating the broadcast networks’ limited coverage.
But then the Times report goes on to note the extraordinary accomplishment of Fox News in head-to-head competition:

In the 10 p.m. hour, which was the only one where the news divisions of the broadcast networks covered the results, Fox had more viewers than any competitor, with 6.6 million. CBS News was next with only 5.4 million. Fox also had the edge in the age group results with 1.825 million viewers to 1.548 million for CBS.
The cynics at deadline.com played up the “comedy” of election-night news:

Comedy was a leitmotif of the coverage — not surprising in a saturated news marketplace where all the unhappy hawkers are competing for the next generation of 25-54 year olds, or — as, someone or other said last night, the next generation of voters once they too become really old.
And the image deadline.com chose to illustrate its point about serious news nets going for the laugh — the so-called “campaign cowboys” on Fox:

Fox Heats Up: Megyn Kelly #1 in November; Bret Baier Beats ABC In Five Big Cities
By Tim Graham | December 4, 2014

 MediaBistro’s Fishbowl DC blog reported good ratings numbers for Fox News Channel. A limited sampling of five markets showed Special Report with Bret Baier “surpassed ABC’s World News Tonight with David Muir in five key markets across the country in household viewers including Baltimore, Jacksonville, Ft. Myers, Providence and St. Louis.” Baier also beat CBS and Scott Pelley in the Atlanta and Austin markets.

Their TV Newser blog also reported big news for Megyn Kelly. In November, for the first time ever, The Kelly File was the number one show on cable in the coveted 25-to-54 demographic. “The last time a host other than Bill O’Reilly has won the demo was in Oct. 2012, when the 10pmET hour, which included presidential debates, was No. 1.”

CNN Tonight (with Don Lemon), Hannity, and Special Report with Bret Baier rounded out the Top 5 shows in the 25-to-54 group. Overall:

Fox News Channel was the second most-watched cable channel, only topped by ESPN, in the month of November. FNC saw slight +2% growth for total day viewing, but experienced double-digit (+20%) growth in the [Adults] A25-54 demo in primetime. FNC delivered its highest rated month since May 2013 in total viewers and April 2013 in the A25-54 demo, when the Boston Marathon bombing occurred.

America’s Newsroom, Happening Now, The Five and Special Report with Bret Baier all had their best months in two years, since Nov. 2012. On the Record with Greta Van Susteren and Hannity each had their best months in both viewers and the A25-54 demo since settling into new timeslots in Oct. 2013.

In contrast to Megyn Kelly, “The Rachel Maddow Show was MSNBC’s highest-rated show in both categories, ranking 17th in total viewers and 20th in the demo.”

MSNBC Host Chris Hayes Reluctantly Admits Fox News Is Most Trusted News Network
Hayes claims Fox tells their viewers that MSM is sneering, spitting, and laughing at them
TOM HINCHEY — MARCH 13, 2015

On Wednesday night’s All In with Chris Hayes, the namesake host explained why the Fox News Channel is the most trusted national news channel, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.

There is a reason Fox News keeps being ranked as the most trusted news source in these polls; and it is connected to the reason that Fox is as profitable and as highly rated as it is, which in turn is tied to both the media landscape and the way liberals and conservatives consume media.

Hayes attempted to illustrate why Fox News continues to dominate the news landscape by posing an analogy whereas Americans could vote for one out of six presidential candidates in an “open election.” He pitted Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, Al Gore, and Mike Huckabee in this fantasy election. Hayes concluded that Huckabee would win the election, not because he is the most popular candidate of the six, but because the five liberals would split the vote to the point that no one person would garner the majority.

And that is exactly the way the media landscape looks in this country right now. You have one national TV news outlet that conservatives watch – Fox News – and a whole bunch of news outlets that everyone else watches.

The Quinnipiac poll showed that 29 percent of the respondents trust Fox News, while 57 percent is split among MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, and CBS News. Hayes claims that Fox News’ strategy is to convince their viewers that the mainstream news outlets mislead them and mock them.

How does it work that Foxnews is against Obama, lies the majority of time, has the most viewers and Obama still won?  Maybe the claims are non sense?

I would say two things.

First the "news" doesn't really have much influence anymore (not sure that it ever really did)
 
Also, Fox's has it core audience of old people who actually have the time to watch TV during the day and early evening (and a really low share of 25-54 year segment) and if they are watching Fox they are already voting Repub

I suppose, but I would think the daytime viewership would apply to all stations.  Plenty of aging libs.

I really make an effort to ignore the plethora of ignorant stuff you say on the board. 

But I'll play this time.  How exactly does MSNBC choose the president every time?
