I don’t usually do media criticism. But flipping channels on the Japan earthquake meltdown coverage, I have to say that Fox was just so much more watchable and informative than CNN. The CNN anchors and reporters spent an awful lot of time congratulating each other, and they often sounded ill-informed. The Fox folks drilled right in on the information and the pictures, and I felt like they were focused on the event rather than themselves. (I was watching the feeds at my Los Angeles hotel).
BTW, I did not evaluate MSNBC or CNBC.
