FNC Dominance Examined
The Baltimore Sun’s David Zurawik looks at FNC’s dominance…
Any day now, I am expecting to turn on the tube and see an ad that says, “More Americans get their TV news from Fox than anywhere else.”
Whether that pleases or horrifies you, it’s time to think seriously about what that says about Fox, CNN, MSNBC, the state of network news today and the role TV plays or doesn’t play in providing us with reliable, trustworthy information.
Fox News has emerged as the leader for election news and more, according to Baltimore Sun critic David Zurawik. The cable news channel is dominant, said Zurawik, who discussed this on Fox News Media Buzz. (The Baltimore Sun)
Much of the media establishment seems bent on ignoring the incredible ratings success of Fox News. Or, maybe it’s just that Fox has pounded CNN and MSNBC in the ratings for so long that another victory doesn’t seem like “news” – especially with MSNBC imploding and CNN committing to any genre but news in an effort to find new audiences.
