“Fox News’s audience, at least through 2018, reportedly has been almost all white and barely picks up minority viewers from around the country. The revelation comes as the network deals with blowback from recent comments made by host Laura Ingraham on the nation’s changing racial demographics.

Over the last eight months, Fox’s viewership has been 94 percent white with Hispanics serving as the next-highest racial demographic to watch at three percent, according to a CNN report citing data from Nielsen.

“Composition of the Fox News audience, 2018-to-date, total day: 94% White, 3% Hispanic, 2% Asian, 1% Black,” said CNN’s Brian Stelter.“

If you read your own link, you will discover that the "poll numbers" are made up by someone from CNN.

 

“Composition of the Fox News audience, 2018-to-date, total day: 94% White, 3% Hispanic, 2% Asian, 1% Black,” said CNN’s Brian Stelter.

 

How does he know that? First of all, most people don't answer their phone unless they can see the caller id and know who they are talking to. That's also why your Democrat poll figures showed Hillary as the clear winner!


Prove CNN made up the numbers. I don't see any statement by Nielsen refuting CNN's characterization of their data, which is not a poll done by phone, by the way.   Otherwise, you are just lying. 


YOU prove CNN isn't lying which is the typical MO of this lefty station. Nielson is only a small sample of the overall population. How many boxes did Nielson rate? 20?30? Even a poll would tell you more about the viewing habits yet you don't even have that.


Asking about Nielson's methodology and sample size is a legimate question.   Accusing CNN of lying is not.  That's a conspiracy theory mentality and has no place in debate.

That shows that the minority do not want to watch FOX because they have been told not by the left wing media where they get their news...this proves that.

Thanks for posting that link...it says a lot.

So you think all minorities are swayed by left wing media?  That they somehow lack the ability to reason and to do as they please?

I would believe that the video had a racist slant to it.  This for several reasons since she attempts to say that being a Caucasian was dreamed up by our founding fathers, Hitler, etc.

 

If we were white then our blood flow would have ceased and it all would be drained out, as in 'white as a ghost'.  We are not white because of this, otherwise our skin color tends to be more of another color.  Crayons label this as a flesh color.  Different regions of the world tend to have shades of this.

 

Your supporting arguments are lacking.


Your supporting arguments are nuts.   Race is a social construct, not based on science.   Don't get all hung up on exact representation of skin color.

It's important because Trump is not the president of all people. He's the president for white people who want a return to an America they fondly remember from the 1950s. Of course, the Fox audience is Trump's audience, almost all white.


What does Trump have to do with watching network news?   You seem to think that everything a person does revolves around Trump?  Apparently Trump has more control over you and your actions than you think.

 

You shouldn't let him control your life like that.  I don't.

 

How do you know that the FOX audience is almost white?  Have you hacked into the nation's TVs to send this information to you?

Laura Ingram  and her stupid remarks which have been chastised by almost  everyone and

by practically everyone in reality  doesn't mean that ALL AMERICANS ARE STUPID AND RACISTS. you will always find idiots in any society. and it was not so long  ago. Jews were discriminated to no end from a lot of places in the US and that was after WWII  figure that one.

Since the first immigrant came into this country. discrimination has always been. when the Irish came oh lord!  one would have thought that this country was going down the drain, or the Italians or any other group that actually didn't show up in the Mayflower. So\  like I have said, it is ingrained in this society to simply discriminate anyone that shows up and they tend to see it as threat to themselves and their way of life.
So, fortunately for you all.

The responses here are hilarious! Instead of acknowledging that it is what it is, here come the conspiracy theories ---- oh, CNN is lying ---- oh, Nielsen is lying (funny, they didn't think Nielsen was lying when they published 'Roseanne' ratings and demos) ---- oh, the OP is lying. It would appear the only ones truly shocked that Fox's audience is 94% white, are the ones who wanted it kept a secret.

Many of the posts in this thread are absurd. Think about it for a moment, (which eliminates Trump Lovers immediately), do we really need a Neilson survey to know almost all Fox viewers are white? I'm surprised it wasn't closer to 99%.


So, you also watch FOX?


Does that mean only non whites watch CNN? Check that Nielson report to see. That's just as crazy.
