    I did watch fox tonite...fox n friends and hannity to be more precise...the difference between fox and cnbc/BBC/ etc is enormous. I'm not just talking about content - more the delivery, style, presentation etc.

    Of course.
    It will also be dependent on media biased as to what is reported. I would say content is far more important than style, presentation just my opinion.

    Nothing rational about politics, I can see where this thread is going so I will bail out and let you all have some fun. May find the link below interesting......

    Why People are Irrational About politics (Huemer)

    http://rintintin.colorado.edu/~vancecd/phil3600/Huemer1.pdf

    Extract below -
    Why is politics subject to such widespread, strong, and persistent disagreements? Consider four broad explanations for the prevalence of political disagreement:

    A. The Miscalculation Theory: Political issues are subject to much dispute because they are very difficult issues; accordingly, many people simply make mistakes—analogous to miscalculations in working out difficult mathematical problems—leading them to disagree with others who have not made mistakes or have made different mistakes leading to different conclusions.

    B. The Ignorance Theory: Rather than being inherently difficult (for instance, because of their complexity or abstractness), political issues are difficult for us to resolve due to insufficient information, and/or because different people have different information available to them. If everyone had adequate factual knowledge, most political disputes would be resolved.

    C. The Divergent-Values Theory: People disagree about political issues principally because political issues turn on moral/evaluative issues, and people have divergent fundamental values.

    D. The Irrationality Theory: People disagree about political issues mainly because most people are irrational when it comes to politics.

    Political disagreement undoubtedly has more than one contributing cause. Nevertheless, I contend that explanation (D), irrationality, is the most important factor, and that explanations (A) - (C), in the absence of irrationality, fail to explain almost any of the salient features of political disagreement.

    It's funny how Fox calls all the other platforms "mainstream" when they are also mainstream if you use most watched as the criteria.. ..

    I guess they use that word to describe all the other platforms which are overwhelmingly Leftwing/Liberal/anti-Trump; becauseFox is one of the very few Conservative and pro-Trump platforms?

    One of the few which is a mainstream traditional tv media source. In terms of viewership - CNN/Fox etc has significantly lower viewership compared to a lot of indie political commentators on things like Youtube. The average viewer of Fox news is now in their late 70's iirc - makes you think.
