Fox News Audience is 94% White

132 Views
Message 31 of 120

Anyone who thinks Fox is an objective news network is living in an alternate reality where the truth does not exist. They can try all they want to prove their fantasy, but intelligent people know what Fox is. It is Trump's propaganda network. Heil Trump!

 

As I stated before, Joseph Goebbels would be very proud of how Fox manipulates their low IQ viewers into believing a wide array of conspiracy theories based on thin air.

The chart that you posted is from 2014. 

Would that look the same as if one from 2018 were posted?

I looked at the site also, but did not see how many people were involved in the survey, and was it regional or nationwide?


You should be able to find all the infromation you want abpout that study or any other study PEW has done at:  http://www.pewresearch.org/

 

Incidentally, they are rated as:

We’ve seen this act before. You sound like trump, in that it sounds the same as saying that do as I say not as I do.

You are stating facts, according to you, but are they the real facts. As in this topic, i’m not surprised by the percentage of what fearful whites are lead to believe, especially via fox news.

They are racists, are you?


Typical liberal rhetoric.  Do you have any facts to offer?

All this nonsense about Fox just cracks me up.  Liberals hate Fox because they're one of the most UNBIASED networks in existence.  Liberals prefer all the fake news they get from other networks.  Not only has Fox been PROVEN to be one of the most unbiased networks in study after study, their viewers have been proven to be more unbiased than those of all but a couple other networks.  AND BEFORE YOU LIBERALS START WITH ALL THE USUAL SPIN, INNUENDO, HALF-TRUTHS, LIES, AND NAME CALLING ABOUT FOX, SHOW US FACTS WITH REFERENCES TO BACK IT UP.  Here are some from the University of Michigan (and there have been numerous other studies, e.g. PEW and UCLA):

Your link says exactly the opposite.  Instead, Fox News is considered right leaning at best.  It is not the most objective news source out there.  Much of this data is based on surveys of the audience.   *Note that this report measures the political leanings of the audience rather than the source itself.

 

Instead, BBC, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today are listed as centrist news sources. 


The link actually says EXACTLY what I said.  Just for you, in hopes you can reread and understand what was said, I highlighted it in blue above.  Part of the PEW study was on the bias of viewers of the different networks.  That's why they did surveys of the audience.  The particular chart above shows how biased viewers are by the network they watch.  As the chart shows, viewers of most networks, including CNN, MSNBC and NBC, are more biased than viewers of Fox.

 

Incidentally, the networks you cited are NOT unbiased or, as you said, centrist.  More accurately, they are less bias than most others.

How so?  Couldn't one say that you exhibit more cultist behavior by your denigrating posts against anyone who doesn't share your opinions?


Have you ever criticized trump for anything? A trump cultist surely wouldn't.


I don't remember you criticizing Obama so you must be an Obama cultist by your definition.

That’s even worse than I had thought.

 

“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.  


I am NOT asking about Neilson's methodology at all. You mentioned that that was the way that CNN got their story. I told you that both Neilson and CNN are a trash way to predict results. If you want to prove that Fox News viewers are 94% white (which they may be), you'll have to dig deeper for proof.


What's the difference between "methodology" and "trash way to predict results?"    Sounds the same to me.   


If it's on CNN, it's TRASH!

Me thinks the left here has way too much time on their hands...  Go figure.

 

Here's a few facts to consider.

 


I have to believe that the left is too hung up on race and reminding everyone of the difference.  That is exactly what they are pointing out.  Perhaps they should forget about the difference and work towards a middle ground.

 

I have to wonder if in fact they want to created dissension by continually bringing this up.
