actual sources instead of being rude, please and thankyou

Simple Mathematics. There are 17 Million subscribes, that's less than 7% of the American population. If you look at the average viewing figures it's much lower, the highest rated show on Fox News is Bill O'riely at 3.1 Million. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_O%2...actor#Audience
. The highest it peaks is at 6-7 Million when it comes to important events.
So even if we assume that 17 Million watch it (which they don't) then it would still be a heavy minority. Don't get so ****ing ignorant.
The channel was launched on October 7, 1996 to 17 million cable subscribers. The channel grew in the late 1990s and 2000s to become the dominant cable news network in the United States. In 2010, the network's programs took the top 10 spots for most-watched cable news programs in the 25–54 demographic and the top 12 spots among total cable news programs viewers. as you will se according to your "source" it launched to 17 million subscribers in 1996 its now 2012 look at the figures for 2010, bad for your argument
