Shop Talk - September 1

Macomb, IL – The panelists talk about cable news ratings, which show an 11% increase for Fox News.

The figure is from Nielsen Media Research. Ratings for CNN and MSNBC are down.

It appears that Fox is being helped by having a Democratic administration in the White House. It gives Fox a target to attack. A similar thing happened during the 1990s when conservative talk radio's ratings soared during the Clinton administration.
