CNN and MSNBC trail Fox News because the country isn’t as liberal as CNN and MSNBC

Week in Review

President Obama recently said that Fox News is out to get him.  Again.  As he can’t spread his message when Fox News is out there telling the truth (see It’s Been A Year Since Jeff Zucker Took Over At CNN — And Ratings Have Plunged To 20-Year Lows by Brett LoGiurato posted 1/22/2014 on Business Insider).

Overall, however, the metrics suggest that Zucker has failed to spark CNN’s ratings. MSNBC suffered from the dip of a non-election year that saw CNN surge past it to a distant No. 2 in total-day viewers next to the dominant Fox News. But CNN’s own primetime ratings slid to a 20-year low.

Why is Fox News dominant?  Is it because they are fair and balanced unlike MSNBC and CNN that lean left?  Or is it because Fox News leans right?  Whatever it is it is apparently what the majority of viewers want.  For they don’t want to watch ‘news’ that is little more than state-run propaganda.  Disseminating the Democrat talking points along with the three broadcast networks.  NBC, ABC and CBS.

According to Gallup most Americans identify themselves as conservative (38%).  The next largest group of people identify themselves as Moderate (34%).  While only 23% identify themselves as liberal (see Liberal Self-Identification Edges Up to New High in 2013 by Jeffrey M. Jones posted 1/10/2014 on Gallup).  So is it any surprise that people tune out from ‘news’ shows that advance the liberal agenda more than just report the news?  Perhaps this is the reason why Fox News dominates.  Because people want actual news.  Not Democrat talking points.  For what conservative or moderate would?
