Election night coverage...
by Angeline Booher / November 4, 2004 11:21 PM PST

But on election night, viewers turned to an old-timer.


Television viewers gave Tom Brokaw a going-away present, making NBC their network of choice for election-night coverage.... was watched by 15.2 million viewers during prime-time

ABC's coverage was seen by 13.2 million viewers, CBS' coverage by 9.5 million and Fox's by 4.7 million, Nielsen said.

Among cable news networks, 8.1 million people watched Fox News Channel, 6.2 million saw CNN and 2.8 million viewers tuned in to MSNBC.

Me? I went with Jim Lehrer and PBS (I like my special news without show biz), so I know they had at least one viewer.:-)

It would have been a deal breaker when my wife was offered work up here (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)if we hadn't had access to a good PBS Station. Fortunately we did and do and we have the Canadian equivalent TVO and 2 BBC stations too.

BBC America. It's nice to hear the different opinions and takes on world events.

Along with Jim and the News Hour and Washington Week in Review, I try to catch Christian Amanpour, Cafferty, and Lou Dobbs on CNN.

I don't understand the significance
by Rick S / November 5, 2004 12:48 PM PST

Do real americans watch Fox?

I watched all the channels, i was comparing electoral votes across each station to see who was being fair and balanced.

You know what?

They all leaned.

True enough, which is why it's not a good idea to watch only one.

We all probably pick one we watch the most. I'll watch Fox as far as continuous news most of the time I'll admit. But I normally watch CBS or NBC at the evening news time. And at work they often have CNN on in the break area.

It's not a good idea to only listen to those that you agree with. If nothing else, you need an idea of what you're disagreeing with. But the fact is you need a bit of different bias to help remind you there is no "just the facts, ma'am" story.

REVIEW

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
