I truly wish that the "News" outlets would drop the partisan BS, but lets face it, being edgy and in your face has kinda pushed Fox News to the fore front of the news networks. MSDNC has essentially tried to play the foil to Fox and appears to have gained some ground. CNN has tried to be more centrist, and while I think they've failed at it, it's also cost them the ratings. They aren't edgy or controversial enough. There's an old saying, "There's no such thing as bad publicity." Heck after Obama decried Fox News, ratings for Fox JUMPED. The more you villify them the more people want to watch.
