There's no question Fox News is killing its competition in the ratings. And the reason is quite simple according to Rupert Murdoch, the CEO of News Corp. (NASDAQ: NWSA), the parent company of Fox News.
On Fox News Channel's May 4 "Your World with Neil Cavuto," Murdoch credited the success of Fox News to the void it fills as people are concerned about the political direction of the nation. He explained with that, his network draws viewers since other networks lean liberal, which is the dominant view of those in power in Washington, D.C.
"Well, I think as Fox News goes, it's very simple," Murdoch said. "You know, it's very powerful, it's very good and it's very balanced. And you know, everybody else, every newspaper, every - maybe an over-generalization, but by far the most newspapers and certainly the other television networks sort of are all on one side, the liberal side of things and we're - I think the population of this country is pretty worried about its direction and they turned to Fox News."

Murdoch to MSM: Thanks for making me even more money. Please keep it up and don’t change.
Fox needs to stop tooting its own horn and start doing some investigative, ground-breaking journalism on this thug regime.
if you merge all the liberal cable into one, i bet they’ll rate higher than fox
The investigative reporting against this regime is lacking. When a couple of kids come up with the best stuff yet..something needs to be done.
It is too bad we couldn’t fund some first class investigators out of FR to look into things in Chicago. That is a festering pile up there and not much info is coming out of the US Attorneys office..somebody should be willing to talk behind the scenes.
“void it fills as people are concerned about the political direction of the nation.”
When it comes to the truth, it may as well be 1910, as the lies, spin, omissions and distortions of the MSM make it impossible to know what’s really going on.
