Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Pew Research: State of News Media 2013: Mostly Opinions & Losing Viewers (influence)

MSNBC Almost Entirely Dominated By Opinion: Pew Study
The Pew Research Center's annual "State of the Media" study was released Monday. One section of the report — which, when taken in its totality, makes for very gloomy reading — deals with changes in the television news landscape over the past five years.
The study's authors found that, since 2007, CNN, Fox News and MSNBC have all cut back sharply on the amount of actual reporting found on their airwaves. Cheaper, more provocative debate or interview segments have largely filled the void.

The latest Pew Research Center’s State of the News Media report is out and there are very troubling indicators for Fox News in it. While Fox remains “by far” the ratings leader among cable news networks, its prime time viewership remained flat, even though 2012 was an election year.

It's getting harder to distinguish CNN from its more ideological cable news rivals, according to  Pew Research Center's annual State of the News Media report.
It may be because of cost-cutting, or an effort to embrace its rivals' greater emphasis on opinion. But between 2007 and 2012, the number of interviews on the channel's evening news programming doubled, while its coverage of live events and story packages fell by 50 percent.

In 2012, a continued erosion of news reporting resources converged with growing opportunities for those in politics, government agencies, companies and others to take their messages directly to the public.
