Only 22% Of Cable ‘News’ Is News: Study
If you feel like you can’t find any news on cable news networks, you’re right.
A new study has found that the vast majority of cable news broadcasts feature opinion, analysis, and spin instead of hard news.
Hard news — defined as a statement of facts, or on-the-spot reporting — amounts to just 22.3% of all footage aired on cable news networks. That amounts to nine minutes, 15 seconds of hard news for every hour of broadcasting.
