  •  MSNBC is airing news (0+ / 0-)

    during and after their Olympic broadcasts. At work, the television sets will stay on, and so far, not a single customer has asked to change the channel.

    There's an old couple who's started to ask for Fox News, and the other day, MSNBC was on. The channel was changed, and they asked for it to be switched back.

    We often show CNN Headline News, and no one's asked to changed the channel for that, either. Their bubble isn't is as large as we suspect.

    I think that most people really don't know that there's a difference between news sources, or even particularly care.

    I've written before that the goal of Fox News is to grab peoples' attention five minutes at a time while they're out doing other things, but after the past few weeks, I might change that theory. I think their main goal is to influence the news cycle on other networks.
