Liberals and the Democratic establishment often regard FOX News as biased and tend to diminish the strength of its appeal to all but die-hard conservatives. In the process, I get plenty of grief from the left for taking a FOX paycheck.   A new study out by Pew Research shows some of this conventional wisdom not to be true. In fact, FOX News has the most “Fair and Balanced” audience of the three cable news nets.

The political breakdown:

CNN: 51% Democrats, 18% Republicans, 23% independents

MSNBC: 45% Democrats, 18% Republicans, 27% independents

Fox News: 33% Democrats, 39% Republicans, 22% independents

This represents a fair and balanced audience of viewers who are engaged, who vote, and who Democrats need if they’re going to win elections.  To those who argue that Democrats should avoid FOX News, look at who you’re also avoiding: a combination of Democrats and independents equalling 45% of the most-watched cable news channel.

Here is the Pew survey.
