Fox's Next Four Years
Last Sunday's NY Times had an interesting article about Fox News's approach to handling the new presidency. Fox is boosting its offense -- streamlining its conservative message to challenge the Obama administration. Though Obama staffers have likely switched White House televisions to other news channels, what about the American public? Do ratings trends of liberal/conservative media correlate with an administration's popularity? If so, Roger Ailes is probably praying that Obama's honeymoon period does not make it to 100 days.
