  • Because, when people realize that Fox discusses the events and the others discuss Fox discussing the events and how to discredit Fox, people just watch Fox.

  • Because Fox News, and it's broadcasters will tell it like it is, not pussy-foot around Barry, afriad of "hurting his feelings." He doesn't give a crap about the country, and so Fox lets it be known, and since most Americans have laid off the Obama-aide, switched back to Dr. Pepper, and their eyes are opening up again, they would rather hear the truth than the "truth" -and I use that term VERY loosely that the liberally biased other networks attempt to pass off as "news."

  • If I watch the news its fox. It not because I am narrow minded as a previous poster suggets. In fact a statement like that is a little narrow minded. I enjoy the information and the hosts.

  • Fox News always puts forth both sides of a debatable topic and they handle both sides with class and an equal amount of time. Their dominant market share allows them to attract the best available talent and sponsors.

  • I prefer Fox and always has since it became available for me to watch. Before that I really dont think I was getting the news the same as I have since I have gotten Fox. I do read about though as well to research anything put forth by any news agency to see if what they are saying is correct.

  • momofone072506...MSNBC and CNN combined have a fraction over 6.5 million viewers. FOX alone has nearly 14 million. Speaks for itself.

  • Beats me. Maybe the same reason Baywatch was the #1 TV show in the world for a number of years. Popularity doesn't mean quality or accuracy. I don't care for any of the MSM, personally.

  • #1 certainly does not equal quality- have you looked at Billboard's #1's lately- the masses as a whole are not necessarily the most intelligent creatures

  • MSNBC is NOT a premium channel on ANY of the cable or satellite services around here. Hate to burst your little bubble there, anon, but you are sadly mistaken, or grasping at straws.

  • Oh yes, you're so right jesse123456, civility", it's that thing that's used conveniently and consistently, whenever the progressives feel the need to whip out the ole double standard...
