I have been reading whispers of Fox News ever-so-slightly turning "squishy." I can't confirm this since I don't watch Fox. Nevertheless, today Politico had a long story on how some True Patriots are taking a stand against Fox News. As Dave Barry so famously said, "No, I am not making this up."
There are a lot of sweet quotes from True Patriots in the story that will leave you breathless. Nevertheless, the real meat was on the fourth page toward the end of the piece.
But Fox may have some demographic reasons for wanting to broaden its reach. Although it has been completely dominant in the cable sphere for years, last year, its ratings in primetime slipped 9 percent in total viewers and 15 percent in the target 24-54 demographic, while CNN and MSNBC gained viewers in primetime.Now, raise your hand if you think the GOP has that same awareness.
