    Don’t get confused with balance between commentary and reporting with the Network leans and delivers its reporting and commentary.

    Fox News are no where near being fair balanced. Sure, MSNBC is not balanced and they themselves have admitted to being Liberal and Left leaning. However, the difference is that Fox News goes around saying that they actually fair & blanced…which is a joke. You and I and everyone else knows that they are a Conservative Network who provides the news with a Conservative spin.

  • Bobbyv

    Mark2, where does that leave the mainstream networks? They always deny their bias, are they not to be trusted like Fox then?

  • Mark2

    @DougZ “It never said that . Prove it.”

    Oh Ok, well then let me help you out buddy.

    You know that same survey that was used to show how Fox News and MSNBC faired when it came to reporting the news. Well, it turns out that CNN was the best.

    Reporting
    #1 – CNN = 54%
    #2 – FOX = 45%
    #3 – MSNBC = 15%

    CNN was the only one that broke the 50% mark besides NBC, CBS, and ABC

  • Mark2

    @Bobby “where does that leave the mainstream networks? They always deny their bias, are they not to be trusted like Fox then?”

    It kind of goes back to “commentary” and “reporting”. ABC, CBS, and NBC Evening News is primarily reporting. Sure we know that their anchors are Liberals but they report the news without having to go all Fox & Friends or Lawrence O’Donnell on us.

  • Doug Z

    Mark2

    Reporting
    #1 – CNN = 54%
    #2 – FOX = 45%
    #3 – MSNBC = 15%

    I guess that means
    CNN 45% Bad
    Fox 55% Bad
    MCNBC 85% Bad

    Is that what you just said.

  • Doug Z

    Many channels owned by big media companies are available in nearly all the roughly 100 million households with pay TV, according to media researcher SNL Kagan. And while many of the most-popular channels earn the highest fees, big disparities exist, particularly for sports channels, which cable and satellite operators view as particularly valuable.

    Nielsen views cost to cable

    1 2.8 million viewers USA Net work———- 1 ESPN $5,04
    2 2.7 ESPN ———————————2ESPN 3D $2.07
    3 2.5 Disney Channel ————————3 3net $1.29
    4 2.1 TBS ———————————–4 TNT $1.18
    5 2.1 Fox News ——————————5 Disney channel 1.09
    6 2.0 History ——————————-6 NFL network.$0.95
    7 1.8 TNT ———————————–7 Fox News $ 0.89

    9 1.6 FX ————————————9 ESPN2 $ .066
    10 1.5 ABC family —————————10 CNN in Spanish $0.58

    I had to reprint . I love these facts

  • Mark2

    CNBC continues to destroy Fox Business.

    Fox Business has become the laughing stock of Cable News.

  • Bobbyv

    Mark2,

    I have never claimed they are like MSNBC but the fact that they report the news does not absolve them of having a bias. Not reporting stories or choosing to report those that make the D’s look good is still bias. I have not seen any studies that reviewed the networks where there were more positive stories on the R’s, but the networks always deny a bias. Sometimes we do get the truth from a former employee or ombudsman.

  • Mark2

    @DougZ “I guess that means CNN 45% Bad, Fox 55% Bad, MCNBC 85% Bad

    No, it just means that according to the Pew Survey that CNN had the highest percentage of reporting as opposed to opinion.

  • mikey o

    Pretty bad now cant compare fox news numbers to MSNBC so the compare CNBC (been around alot longer) to fox bussines, Or the Network news to cables news or last week they combined HLN and CNN numbers to beat fox news LOL LOL Spin baby Spin

  • Mark2

    @Mikey

    No spin there buddy, just making an observation that CNBC is kicking Fox Business Network’s azz.

    I know just having fun

  • Doug Z

    History with 2 million views rated 6th in my chart above and Not making the top 10 in pay will want a raise after their new shows have made hits for them.

  • Mark2

    @Bobby

    I think we can all agree that Fox News did more negative stories on Obama and MSNBC did more negative stories on Romney.

    Be back later

  • mikey o

    I got it cant win the majors MSNBC to Fox News , change the subject go to the minors with bussiness news

  • Bobbyv

    Mark2,

    Agreed on that….I was referring more to the networks though. Have a good one

  • mikey o

    @Bobby I think we can all agree that Fox News did more negative stories on Obama and MSNBC did more negative stories

    yes thats right but MSNBC was the leader thou Focusing on the cable network aspects of coverage there are the extremes of FOX News (leans right) and MSNBC (leans left) with CNN essential in the middle (center left). There is no question that FOX, essentially the only right leaning cable network, was very negative against President Obama. Fully 46% of news coverage was negative as opposed to the 12% negative coverage of Romney.

    MSNBC for its part was even worse in its own bias. Negative coverage of Romney was 71% of all coverage (1.55x more negative that FOX coverage of President Obama), while negative coverage of President Obama was 15%.

  • Doug Z

    mikey o

    CNN in the middle? Nobody that works there is not a Democrat. lib

  • mikey o

    @Bobby V on the networks

    the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism report on the 2012 election showed a similar trend to that of 2008. One of the key findings in the report was that:
    •Network news viewers received a different narrative about the candidates depending on when they watched – In the evening, Obama fared better. His narrative was fairly evenly mixed. For Romney, negative exceeded positive by 17 points.

  • Mark2

    ^
    But that all changed after the 1st debate:

    Positive
    Romney = 20%
    Obama = 13%

    Negative
    Obama = 36%
    Romney 30%
