- Left-leaning coverage will gloat over Fox News Channel's drop of 21% in total viewing.
- Right-leaning coverage will trumpet CNN and MSNBC losing half their primetime audience.
- Interesting, in looking over news reports, there's a lot of a third tack - discussing the CNN - MSNBC battle (for a very distant second) and ignoring or burying the Fox News numbers.
For CNN, that's 15 straight months of declining audience numbers. And while Fox was also down, it ended the month coming in second (to ESPN) in primetime viewing, and still pulled in more viewers than all the other cable news networks combined. November 2013 marked the 143rd straight month with Fox News as the top cable news network.
