I know most folks are not that way. It's not often I stop at a stop light and somebody next to me has news or talk radio on; kind of explains why people vote the way they do. Besides our Cleveland channels, I also have Serius satellite radio which again, is usually turned to a talk radio channel.<quoted text>
Yes, old people (like me and you) still read the Police Gazette and Colliers magazine, and we always will. Because once something is popular, it stays that way forever.:-)
Fox News has had a good run as the most popular cable news source. But, most folks don't get their news from cable channels. Only 38% of Americans get their news from a cable channel. 71% watch local news. 65% watch network news.
You are part of a special breed that is a news junkie. I'm guessing that you watch/listen to a lot of TV & radio news/talk formats. Being a truck driver gives you a lot of time to listen to news/talk stations, and it's a pleasant way to pass the time. But don't think that most folks are that way.
But for the people that are news/ politics junkies, most of them turn to Fox outside of MSM. Cable news will never be more popular than anything on free TV. And as you know, as we age, our taste changes as well. You don't have an interest in things you once had. You don't watch the same type of television shows you did when you were younger. There is nothing of interest for me on MTV any longer. LOL.
