Well if your article is truthfull, then why is Fox News Channel leading in all the cable news polls?
You just wished it would be that way....keep on wishing, your other hand will get fuller first!
Fox wouldn't suck so much if it wasn't all Natalee all the time. I have no idea how they plan to hang on to #1 like that.
Fox News has two good things left:
1) Brit Hume
2) Smoking, hot babes
The fact that it is "fair and balanced" in comparison to other cable news networks says more about the entire industry than it does about Fox News.
It's the same with me. I still like Brit Hume's show, Media Watch, and the Beltway Boys but I infrequently watch BOR or H&C anymore.
It's not that bad...geeeeeeeeeeeessshhhhh.
Ratings for FOX just released and they were up HUGE, again. I guess the FACTS dispute the author's premise.
I usually just put on CNBC for the financials, etc. When I did put on the early Fox news, I was surprised how stupid and trivial the morning "anchors" and news sounded.
It doesn't have to be all-news either, there'd be hunting shows, tips on firearm defense, spotlights on key issues such as SS and illegal immigration (bayourod could be one of the debaters ROFL) and interviews with FReepers.
Yet the Fox news numbers continue to rise. The ratings actually showed that more people WANTED to see the Aruba story. Someone please explain that one.
While I agree Fox News has worn out the utterly boring Natalie Hollaway story, is it any more worn out than what the other networks cover obsessively, whether it's the daily body count ticker in Iraq they get off on telling us endlessly about or their endless coverage of the utterly insignificant Cindy Sheehan?
At least the Hollaway coverage is motivated by the fact it at one time held viewer's interest and was something they wanted to know about (hopefully Fox is reading their ratings and noting people have lost interest now). Of course we know the Iraq body count and Cindy Sheehan obsession of CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC was all about furthering an agenda. Given the two motivations, I'll take the former over obsessive reporting meant to mold public opinion.
Fox News: Almost All Tabloid All the Time
We don't get cable or satellite TV so we're stuck with the 3 networks and sometimes PBS. At one point over a year ago we were really looking into getting cable because we wanted to get Fox News, but it wasn't offered with the most basic package so we didn't bite.
But now even if it was offered at a basic rate, I doubt we'd go for it. I've heard way too many complaints from regular Fox News watchers and every time I tune into Fox News at a family member's house I tire easily at the amount of time spent on non-news stories.
I have a cousin who is a producer for CNN. Even He watches Fox News! The reason more people watch Fox than the others is simply because their on-air personalities are more attractive than the competition. Period.
Brit rules. Fox News Sunday is OK - especially the panel where Brit regularly beats up on Juan Williams.
