By Paul Jacobs and Andrew RankinThis week, Fox News has become the second-most-watched cable news network in the United States, and has gained the second highest audience share ever on cable.
While that’s great for the network, it is not as big of a deal as it should be, because it’s not a network that has the financial resources to continue to produce quality journalism, as they were in the 1980s.
Fox News is not an organization that can afford to produce the kind of quality journalism that is currently being produced on other cable news networks, as their budget has ballooned, and it’s time for the organization to start cutting costs, and put more of its resources towards quality journalism.
This is a time for Fox News to make a change in order to improve the quality of its news coverage, and this is the time for them to cut the losses and start investing in quality journalism again.
This is not a time to be looking for new sources to write about.
The world is changing, and people have become much more cynical and accepting of government surveillance and corporate control over the media, and Fox News should not be afraid to adapt to the new reality.
If they are going to continue producing quality news, it will have to be on a budget that is comparable to their peers.
Fox News can’t afford to be making big profits, but they should have the budget to produce good quality journalism on a monthly basis.
If it does, they can continue to be a part of the news ecosystem, and that is a good thing for all of us.
