Question: If Fox News is so successful because of it's center- right approach to news why is it the only major TV news network that does this?
Last night Coppel was on Oreilly whining about how Fox News is biased and all the typical left wing garbage, but it brings up a question that I've been wanting to ask for a while now.


Fox news is incredibly successful with it's center-right approach to news yet it is the only major TV news that does this in a sea of left wing TV news organizations.

With the huge success of Fox why isn't anyone else jumping on the center-right TV news bandwagon?


It's been over 10 years and they are still the only "conservative" tv news. Why hasn't anyone else jumped in? Why haven't conservative news organizations popped up all over the place on TV?

Instead it's Fox News in a sea of liberal TV media. Why hasn't more "conservative" TV popped up? You'd think with the huge success of fox that others would have followed suit.

I want other options on TV. Only depending on radio and the internet for the truth.

They only need one to keep the phony conservative fools in line and pacified. Competition would only foster a climate wherby the two or more competitors might actualy try to out conservative each other. Left wing, gun control supporting New Your City liberals masquerading as conservatives like Bill O'Riley would have to be shit canned and replaced by real conservatives to win the media battle for conservative supremacy.

They would essentialy be building a Frankenstein monster that might one day destroy them. So they show you a bunch of jewish neocons, tell you that their brand of international communism is "conservatism" and everybody is happy. Controled opposition they call it.

The answer is fairly simple. Liberals absolutely refuse to believe they are ever wrong or are part of the problem even it means totally disregarding all evidence to the contrary. Therefore all of the liberal media outlets whether print or electronic will continue to go their merry way in the face of continuing revenue loss, viewer loss, or subscription loss. It's simply not their message, in their eyes it's other cosmetic factors; such as who the anchor is, or the font of their print.

The others will never change. They'll just simply die unless the government bails them out.

You are CORRECT.

CNN for example, is MUCH more interested in advancing their global, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, redistribution of wealth, atheistic agenda than they are in increasing their ratings by presenting news fairly, without bias, which they are of course, incapable of.

perceived market saturation, for the most part. Fox watchers are an INCREDIBLY dedicated viewing audience. whatever hypno-voodoo they use to lock in the viewers works incredibly well (and no, Fox is far from the only network to use unconcious/subliminal triggers to keep the viewers "into the message", im not trying to indict them for what is done by all, just pointing out they have a well thought out, highly effective methodology). however, by sheer numbers, that dedicated cadre is relatively "small" in terms of market potential. it also tends toward a narrower population demographic, not because of any grand scale single "alienation of viewers", but a myriad set of minor irritants-to-many that, when stacked, make folks absolutely loathe the Fox "brand". it's "archie bunker" news, to use a stereo-type most americans will know. until Fox, it was a mostly unserved market niche. it's also the market niche all aspects of the Murdoch news empire have courted since its origins. they have made a science of "working" that demographic. it's also a demographic with intense brand loyalty. once they select a brand, it pretty much takes a world shattering event to jar them loose. these are the guys who get in "ford vs. chevy" arguments, once again as but an illustrator of the cult-like brand appeal, not an indictment of personality type. a limited market with a target audience that exhibits fanatical brand devotion (which also limits potential advertiser appeal, as the Levi's devotee isnt buying anything else, no matter how slick a campaign you mount) who have already locked into a "brand" in their viewer habits doesn't have tons of appeal for potential competitors. it would be a long hard expensive unprofitable fight that could only be won by capturing the same monopoly Fox already has. it guarantees to alienate at least part of your pre-existing market share, which offsets gains in the emerging market. the Fox brand doesn't blend well with theirs. is it a better risk to compete in a broad market niche with many competitors, or a narrower one dominated by a single competitor that commands intense brand loyalty? all or nothing is a hard sell to investors, lol

The major networks are there to tell you how to think about a given topic and most people go along with their reasoning and rationalization.

Learn to critically think through the topics on your own.

It's just a progressive dog whistle meant to move the Overton window to the left in the country. When you make the center right extreme right, then the left becomes center.

The system needs both voices to do what they do. When General Electric needs to expropriate your farm for a new warehouse complex to store their cheap chinese shit. They go to NBC and have them talk up the "private property rights should have limits, it's all for the common/collective good" angle. If anybody says fuck GE and all their Chinese shit we should be forcing them to make that shit here in the USA, they go to FOX and have Hannity piss and moan about "the sanctity of private property and free markets."

They have both left and right working for them depending on their needs at any particular time.

because politics and ideology trumps everything

as Limbaugh always says, leftists can't win in the arena of ideas, so they have to use other means to force their agendas down your throat
