In terms of coverage, international presence...etc?
Soon, Fox News will be bigger than both the BBC and CNN combined!
It may be 'bigger', but it won't be better.
I despise US TV news generally. Local news coverage is pathetic & international coverage is a joke. I don't like CNN, I don't like Fox News etc either.
When I need real hard news, I switch to BBC America or C-Span.
Failing that, NPR.
Nothing In Particular
CNN only has 300,000 viewers.
This is true about cable in general, and CNN is one of the bigger cable channels. It always amuses me when Fox News supporters (and you know who you are) boast about their channel getting more viewers than CNN, guess what folks if you add up all the Fox News viewers, CNN viewers, MSNB/CNBC etc. viewers they all total less than the number of people watching Dan Rather alone, and I'm sure the Fox people will just love that.
