    but the few that you're right about does pull MSNBC's numbers, in particular, down a little. CNN is pretty much in every market, like Fox, so I don't think you're right there at all.

    That said, Fox's viewers are almost all old people and some middle aged. MSNBC's are almost all young people and middle aged.

    There are more old people than young people, but not forever... and it's changing fast for places like Fox. Just like the GOP has a demographics problem, so does Fox.

      the cable company that's seemed most intransigent about keeping MSNBC on a higher (usually digital-only) tier has been Comcast...

      ...which now owns MSNBC outright.

      Which is to say, if MSNBC isn't already more widely available on lower tiers of Comcast systems, it will be soon.

      Intended to be a factual statement.

        Also- it does peeve me at motels.  I got into an argument with a clerk for having FOX on in the lobby.  Only when I threatened to call the main office and asked him for his full name did he change the channel.
