Abstract

Fox News and the polarization of attitudes in the U.S.

Mass media in the United States have historically evolved through three stages in which the
content is aimed at the elites, then the masses, then specialized audiences. This evolution has recently been taking place within the news media, where Fox News is now being aimed at conservative viewers. The effect of the conservative content of Fox News on its viewership was examined. Findings from a survey show that Fox viewers are more polarized than other news consumers on several issues. Whether they watched Fox News or some other news program, however, the respondents consistently felt that the media were between good and fair in their coverage. Fox News viewers seem to be relatively satisfied with the news content they receive – or at least as satisfied as respondents who get their information from other sources.
