How Cable News Capitalized in 2017
Cable news had its best year in 2017. Forbes magazine talked to Newhouse Broadcast and Digital Journalism Professor Les Rose to understand why.
“It’s indicative of our country at this point,” he said. “We’ve never been more divided, and that works its way down to viewing habits.” Rose, talking now about the success of Fox News, also added that, “they have their niche and nobody does it better. They are dishing out exactly what their audience wants to hear.”
