Fox News Popularity

April 15, 2002 10:25 PM

Why is Fox News suddenly so popular?

The answer may lie in an email to staff from a Fox News SVP on 11/28/2001:

"Let's not get sidetracked worrying about the plight of Afghans this winter, or how many children are undernourished. We can help that country as soon as they cough up the guys who killed 5,000 Americans. When in doubt, take a look at the WTC collapsing."

And that is the attitude permeating America's most watched news network.
