Which Political Party Supporters Watch Which News Channel

The Facts

While watching CNBC today John Harwood, who is covering the Republican Party convention for CNBC, was talking about the “left of center bias” in the main stream press. He went on to say that CNN’s own surveys show that the majority of people who watch CNN are Democrats.

My View

I have no doubt that out of the two major 24-hour “news” channels (CNN & Fox) more Democrats do watch CNN than Republicans. Very few, if any, Democrats or Independents will watch Fox News when Fox is talking politics, because they know which political party Fox is going to hype and which political party they are going to demonize. No reasonable minded person would ever deny the fact that Fox News is nothing more than the public relations department for the Republican Party; and most viewers who watch Fox is watching them because Fox is saying what they already want to hear. At least on CNN you can hear both pros and cons of both political parties, although CNN, like any other news channel, does have their own biased people. But on a whole, unlike Fox, CNN reports the news without airing their political biases. Therefore, in reference to CNN viewers being Democrats, I imagine many of them are like me; they want to hear the good and bad on both parties and their candidates. That’s something we know we won’t get from Fox.

  1. I’ve watched Fox, CNN, BBC & NPR. Fox and CNN both have a party they prefer. I’m a conservative but I have voted on both sides. What I dislike on both, is the interruptions by the commentators if a person is not going the way they think. I want to hear the good and bad of both sides. I have watched our country turn so me, me, me. Disrespect is the norm. Religion is a bad word. The media plays such an important part in our lives but it seems they all promote hate and anger. It’s like they want to stir trouble. I wish there was a station that would just be open to all parties, have their say and let the media get the facts. What I have seen by these two parties is they can’t be trusted to be honorable.

  2. Fox’s news is totally Republican, very bias toward Barack Obama; the morning team sucks and sean hannity is a racists who will look up in hell when he leave the world. greta shows favoritism to sarah palin who is a liar and disgrace to all christian women and the regular females in the world. I’ve stop watching fox news a couple of weeks ago—-racists and digusting
