    Default Only 1% Of Fox News Viewers Are Black

    Nielsen’s annual look at the racial breakdown of cable news viewers has arrived and once again there are some seriously sharp difference between the big three networks when it comes to the diversity of their viewers.

    During the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m., MSNBC’s audience is 24% black, CNN’s audience is 16% black and Fox News’ audience is just 1% black. By comparison MSNBC’s primetime audience is 67% white while CNN’s is 73% white and Fox News’ is 92% white.

    According to the 2010 census, 72% of Americans identify as “white alone” while 13% say they are “black or African-American.” That means that both CNN and MSNBC are overrepresented when it comes to black viewers, while Fox News is vastly underrepresented.

    Using November 2014 as an example, Fox News averaged 2.082M total viewers in primetime, compared to 653K for CNN and 605K for CNN. That means that Fox had an average of about 20,820 African-Americans watching on a nightly basis. For CNN, that number was approximately 104,480 and for MSNBC it was 145,200. So even with an audience that more than doubles its competitors, Fox had far fewer black viewers than the other two networks.

    As for other minority groups, Fox’s percentage is lower than that of either CNN or MSNBC across the board, in both primetime and total day. CNN’s Asian-American audience is slightly larger than that of MSNBC, while CNN and MSNBC have the same percentage of Hispanic viewers (7%). With self-described “Hispanics” representing 16% of the U.S. population, that means all three networks are significantly underrepresented in that department, though CNN has an entire Spanish-speaking network CNN en Espańol, and Fox has its Fox News Latino property.

    I'm just saddened to see that people still "watch" the news. Television news is horrible, agenda-driven malarkey, for the most part.

    It might be very important considering Republicans are trying to get the black vote and Fox News is the Republican party shill.

    Fox News is not the Republican party. It's a television network. One that, I beleive, is smoking the other news networks in the ratings. So it doesn't matter any more than it won't matter if asian females are a small part of ESPN's audience. Kind of a non story for me. It ranks at 0 on my give-a-shit meter.

    You clearly don't know what you are talking about. By Roger Ailes own admission - Fox News is the message delivery system for the Republican party.

    Wow - if a 0 on your give a shit meter still compels you to respond about it in a thread, I wonder what kind of reaction you would have for something that is a 10 on your give a shit a meter. Why didn't you just ignore this thread?

    Fox dominates cable news ratings and has for years. This rubs a lot of progressive / liberals the wrong way. In fact, they're so butt hurt over this fact, that they start threads about it, for no other purpose, than to be provocative.

    Tbh, Fox doesn't need black viewership to be successful. It's just icing on the cake if they did.

    Fox is no more a shill than MSNBC is....

    What a dumb ass thread.

    Yes, there are a lot of fucking stupid people in America that eat up the excrement level of journalism that Fox News broadcasts every day.
