    Because FOX News is considered a cable news network. It competes with CNN, MSNBC, and HLN in the cable news ratings.

    Fox network is a different animal and competes with ABC, NBC, and CBS in the network TV ratings.

    Fox network doesn't have a morning or evening news program, as it puts all of its news eggs in the cable basket and instead competes with the (vestigial - so the conservatives don't cry like babies) Big Three in prime time.

    I would think that that's why the OP is written the way it is.
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    I didn't include Fox because they don't have a Network news program, at least not in the Portland, Or market.

    All the news stations favor/lean

    and FOX and MSNBC are the two worst of the worst.

    SOme are better at only leaning while MSNBC and FOX dont lean they are just laying in bed with who they favor but they all have some lean.

    If you make Liberals, socialist and progressives different parties, then they would.

    Numbers for the week of April 28, 2014:

    NBC ABC CBS
    • Total Viewers: 9,026,000 8,094,000 6,991,000
    • A25-54: 2,136,000 2,144,000 1,727,000


    Evening News Ratings - TVNewser

    and here....

    According to Nielsen data through Dec. 8, Fox News Channel averaged 1.774 million viewers in primetime (down 13% from 2012) and 297,000 adults 25-54 (down 30%). It was followed by MSNBC with 645,000 viewers and 203,000 adults 25-54 (down 29% in both); CNN with 578,000 (down 15%) and 187,000 adults 25-54 (down 16%); and HLN with 403,000 total viewer (up 21%) and 142,000 in the demo (up 27%).

    So the CBS evening news has 5 times the viewers of Fox and they are the worst of the big three. Fox is Cable, NBC, ABC and CBS are not. I don't understand why people don't understand that. Oh yeah they watch Fox.
