CNN Drops to Last Place Among Cable News Networks

CNN Drops to Last Place Among Cable News Networks - Media Decoder Blog - NYTimes.com



Zack posted the link in another post and I think it deserves its own post.

The results demonstrate once more the apparent preference of viewers for opinion-oriented shows from the news networks in prime time. CNN has steered opinion hosts like Nancy Grace to HLN, while maintaining more news-oriented shows on CNN itself. When news events are not being intensely followed, CNN executives acknowledge, viewers seem to be looking for partisan views more than objective coverage.


Yes. That's why there was a thing called journalistic integrity. It doesn't matter what people want. It really doesn't. We should do what's good for our society rather than what's good for profit. News has become entertainment, which is why it's hard to get anything done in America right now. Like, I don't know, providing health care coverage for all your citizens, rather than just the ones that can afford it at prices set by profit-driven insurance companies. In your first term.

I think the quote is media spin. They will never admit their liberal bias and they will never admit that it turns some people off. The New York Times is in more denial than any other paper. I love the whining about layoffs. Some of it is the internet, but a lot of it is they print "All the Liberal News Fit To Print", so they become irrelevant.
