DURING TUESDAY'S ELECTION, Fox News drew larger audiences than any other cable news operation.
Fox News averaged 6.96 million viewers in prime time on Tuesday, according to ratings results from the Nielsen Company, the New York Times reported. CNN averaged 2.42 million viewers. MSNBC averaged 1.94 million viewers.
Does that mean that people with conservative leanings were more engaged in this election? Or is this a sign that viewers want information with a particular slant?
If news with an agenda is gaining larger audiences, should other networks and news programs try presenting the news with more analysis and maybe some opinion?
Should journalists abandon the idea of objectivity?
