This should drive the Fox Haters up the wall and I'm certain we'll see all sorts of Posts trying to prove this to be false.

Fox News Ends Year With Ratings of MSNBC, CNN and HLN Combined

By Randy Hall | December 19, 2013 | 05:30

As 2013 draws to a close, Fox News Channel continues to dominate cable television news programming, according to Nielsen data through Dec. 8.

In an article for Variety, Rick Kissell stated that Fox has averaged 1.774 million viewers in prime time -- down 13 percent from last year's presidential election-driven numbers -- while the Cable News Channel fell 15 percent, and MSNBC lost 29 percent.

However, not all the news regarding Fox was positive. The 297,000 people in the important demographic of adults from 25 to 54 years of age was down 30 percent compared to the previous year. Nevertheless, Kissell noted that MSNBC followed with 203,000 adults (down 29 percent), and CNN drew 187,000 adults, falling 16 percent.

Not surprising at all. MSNBC is nothing but lefty crackpots, CNN has thrown in the towel already and changing their programming, and not sure what HLN is about; but if it's the Nancy Grace nework that's all I need to know about it.

The low information dopes can watch them while the rest of us stick with Fox.

And the National Enquirer's circulation is bigger than the three top newspapers combined! In other words, quantity doesn't equal quality.
No, it just means more demand in light of the complete absence of news critical of one particular side of the political spectrum. There are many legitimate stories that, if it weren't for Fox, would never be broadcasted. You cannot say the same of the others. http://newsbusters.org/blogs/ken-sh...mits-obvious-media-lean-left-exist-their-echo

Just the difference in reporting amazes me. Here is one example

The top three newspapers are,,,USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. The USA Today is more centralist ( A Measure of Media Bias ), The Wall Street Journal leans right regarding the Editorials and left regarding the news ( Media Bias Is Real, Finds UCLA Political Scientist / UCLA Newsroom ) and the New York Times definitely left ( I need no links for that comment).
The point is, conservatives have but few choice with cable news and are more likely to watch local news broadcast (combined easily have more viewers than Fox News), As a matter of fact local news beats everybody combined*. *How Americans Get TV News at Home | Pew Research Center's Journalism Project

Wouldn't you like to know
A fitting metaphor for why progressives have to force you to live as they would have you. Because if given the choice, they know that most people wouldn't choose them and their way.

I have found more conservatives watch the news than liberals. Generally speaking.
I don't like Limbaugh...at all...he is a partisan blowhard...but even a partisan blowhard gets things right sometimes...he referred to liberals as "low information" voters.
He was right...how else could Obama get elected....TWICE.

Some here may never figure that out, even while they're engaged in figuring that out:

THAT's what sells ratings. Emotional candy. Not news.

She's a dog compared to most of the Fox bunnies.

In my next life I'm coming back as the guy in charge of the Fox casting couch.

Do people read National Enquirer for news about politics, economy etc...? Or do they read it for celebrity news and gossip?

From the article at your OP link:

However, not all the news regarding Fox was positive. The 297,000 people in the important demographic of adults from 25 to 54 years of age was down 30 percent compared to the previous year.

It's no secret that Fox draws from the elderly population.

45 million Republicans.
Cable News available to just about all of them.
3 million Republicans, at most, tune into FoxNews.
How many are actually paying attention?
Doesn't seem so impressive after all; shows you how pathetic MSNBC and CNN are.

And, of course, broadcast news channels till outnumber cable news channels.

Add that to the fact that broadcast news is free while one expects to pay for viewing cable.

So, by your analogy, broadcast TV is the equivalent of the top newspapers you refer to and like you say, quantity does not equal quality.

Looks like the popularity of the FNC channel is spreading. It is available worldwide to some 40 countries including the U.K., Canada, France, Australia, Ireland and South Africa.

Good to see other countries have a real option when it comes to being informed.

And that's always been a concern: that more of the world didn't have access to contrived sensationalistic News McNuggets appealing to the lowest common denominator. Lucky world.

Uh ---- no. They don't. Not on this planet. Broadcast air is limited; cable space is not. So as long as cable has been around that's never been the case. Not even close.

Add that to the fact that broadcast news is free while one expects to pay for viewing cable.

That's true. It's my point about "ratings". Ratings have one meaning and one meaning only: how much my station can charge for advertising. That's it. It's a measure of attention -- which has zero to do with assent.
