Fox news: an eye of the reporters of the news

Fox News - Fox News says its two mottos – “fair and Balanced” and “we Report, You decide” – are the reasons it has become the country’s most popular cable news channel.

But others say that what lies behind Fox News’ success – aside from opinionated players such as Bill O’reilly and news with attitude delivered by Shepard Smith – is the channel’s overall right-leaning political bent. That’s a charge Fox News strongly rejects.

Still, 52% of regular Fox News viewers consider themselves conservative – 16 percentage points higher than the population as a whole – according to a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center.

And after Fox News made a big splash at this summer’s Republican National Convention – drawing more viewers than NBC, ABC or CBS for the first time at such an event – some TV news observers began predicting that Fox News’ success will lead cable news rivals CNN and MSNBC, and perhaps even broadcast news divisions, to align themselves with an ideology.

And now, with Fox News retaining 20% of the ratings bump it got from the presidential elections (compared with 8% for CNN and 5% for MSNBC), that talk continues in news circles.

Executives at CNN and MSNBC, as well as broadcast news chiefs, say that it would be a mistake for Fox News to align themselves politically, as do many British media. While opinion has a place in some news programming, they say, mixing it with reporting is the wrong way to go.

At CNN, which has fallen a distant No. 2 to Fox, chief Jim Walton tips his hat to Fox News’ ratings but notes: "there is no question that opinion and debate can be oftentimes entertaining and create passions in viewers. But I can emphatically state that CNN’s business is built on being an independent voice. Fortunately for us, good journalism is good business. It’s not just about ratings."
