More people are getting their news about the upcoming election from cable television than any other source, and from Fox News more than any other cable channel, according to a POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Poll released Monday.

 

The poll found that 81 percent of those polled get their news about the midterm elections from cable channels, like Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, or their websites, compared with 71 percent from national network news channels, such as ABC, NBC or CBS, and their websites.

POLITICO 44

 

Among cable news channels, Fox was the clear winner, with 42 percent of respondents saying it is their main source, compared with 30 percent who cited CNN and 12 percent who rely on MSNBC. 


The results show the growing influence that 24-hour cable news has on shaping the political consciousness, despite the fact that network newscasts still draw many multiples of the number of viewers of even the highest-rated cable news shows.

 

"Because people can tune into cable at any time of day, I think the cumulative audience is probably larger than the cumulative audience for the three network news shows," said Chris Arterton, dean of the George Washington University's Graduate School of Political Management.

 

The results of the poll of 1,000 likely voters conducted Sept. 19 to Sept. 22 also reflect a trend that many commentators and media analysts find disconcerting: Voters are turning to media sources that reinforce their political worldviews rather than present them with more objective reporting that might challenge their assumptions.

 

"As more people get news from cable channels and websites that offer a particular point of view 24/7, it becomes increasingly important for viewers to sample multiple sources in order to best understand the issues and proposed solutions," said Michael Freedman, a professor of media and public affairs at George Washington and executive director of its Global Media Institute. "This trend is only increasing."

 

Still, newspapers remain an important source of news. Despite steady declines in circulation over the past decade, newspapers are more influential than national news broadcasts when it comes to news on the upcoming election, with 72 percent of respondents saying they turn to newspapers or their websites.

 

Local news did better, at 73 percent, and conversations with friends and family was the second-most-cited source, at 79 percent. Radio was cited by only 58 percent of respondents, and non-newspaper websites and blogs by 39 percent.

I think he is popular, even if u aren't into politics u know who o'reilly is... With that said Rachel is probably not as popular, she doesn't really do anything that stands out to the GP ... Such as and not limited to, throwing tantrums... It could also be on how each of them started their career ... Wasn't bill part of Hollywood Extra? I may have him confused with someone else though need to do some research... Anyway comparing bill and maddow is like comparing apples to oranges they are 2 different types of peeps... I say let's compare jon stewart with him and we may have a more level playing field (shrugs)

I think he is popular because he is well known. Does popularity mean he is well-liked? I think that is debatable.

Personally, I think he's an ass.

I know who both of them are, but don't watch or listen to either one. Neither O'Reilly or Maddow have any baring on my political standing...

I don't watch him as much as I used to, but I like him.  I don't always agree with him, but he's usually good for some food for thought....
