I think most of them are the latter. Or at least to the same extent that college kids look to the Daily Show as their primary news source.
Hell, the election results speak for themselves in that regard - if Fox News carried the cache that ABC News did, Obama would've been tried for treason and hanged, not given another 4 years.
I think it's clear that the vast vast
majority of Americans view Fox as supplemental in nature. My concern is that they don't
view ABC, CBS or NBC in the same light.
