At MSNBC Opinion Dominates Coverage

03.18.13 12:55 PM

The Pew Research Center’s latest The State of the News Media report sheds some light on which television news channels spend the most time giving opinions and which ones do the most reporting.

Pew outlines how a changing demand for television news programing and scaling back of resources at major news networks is changing the makeup of television news.



From the report:
On cable, the news structure of the three channels—the mix of interviews, packaged segments and live coverage—has changed. After relying on significantly distinct formats five years ago, the three rivals [Fox, CNN and MSNBC] now look strikingly similar.

At the same time, some of the differences that demarcated daytime cable from prime time have also eroded in the past five years. Traditionally known for its attention to breaking news, daytime cable’s cuts in live event coverage and its growing reliance on interviews suggest it may be moving more toward the talk-oriented evening shows. This transition may cut the costs of having a crew and correspondent provide live event coverage.

CNN, which has branded itself around reporting resources and reach, cut back between 2007 and 2012 on two areas tied to that brand—in-depth story packages and live event coverage. Even so, CNN is the only one of the three big cable news channels to produce more straight reporting than commentary over all. At the other end of that spectrum lies MSNBC, where opinion fills a full 85% of the channel’s airtime.
