Fox News: A Loud, But Small Voice

Those of you wringing your hands (and I’m one) about the consistent distortions and flat lies that are Fox News can calm down now. Here are the most recent AdWeek ratings for TV network news:

Network ABC NBC CBS
• Total Viewers:  9,251,000 8,973,000 6,600,000
• A25-54:  1,980,000 2,033,000  1,434,000

 

 

You’ll note some very large numbers among the three major networks, none of which is Fox News, which has about three million viewers in prime time, half that of CBS and a third of ABC’s. A survey by the Pew organization found several years ago that  “significant portions of the Fox News and MSNBC audiences spend time watching both channels.”
