The article was written by a media Matters reporter. I posted it for its data, not its opinion. I pulled it from AD-Week [an agency e-rag].
The point of the post IS the market's rule and the market's dislike of bias on either side.
Market doesn't give a crap about bias. It likes entertainment. Fox has been a faddish entertainment of the news sort. Lots of pretty colors and loud music. Short punchy lines when news reading. Most of the time filled with commentary and analysis, which is far cheaper than paying news crews flitting about the planet from one popular venue or disaster to another, in earnest little wads of self-righteousness.
So far in my short little life I have never seen an industry in which the constituent players were static. Their lines wiggle all over the place. This could be a wiggle or it could be a trend. If it's a trend then Fox will look for an antidote. Maybe they'll find one, maybe the wont.
Long live the market!
The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.
