“All the networks do a fine job of bringing important news to us. The American public needs the networks-for national and international stories-and they need local news to learn what’s happening in their own communities.”
Rosalind Stark, executive director, RTNDA
“CNN seems hands down to be the best U.S. television news-gathering organization. Along with the thoughtful coverage us traditionalists seek out, they’ve been able to offer something to generation-X in headline news.”
Shanan Delp, independent media analyst, Berkeley, Calif.
“Fox News Channel is contemporary, lively and provides a balance and perspective not found on CNN or MSNBC. The mainline media refers to FNC as `too conservative.’
Steve Beverly, broadcasting prof., Union University, Jackson, Tenn.
