It seems that in its quest for objectivity and nonpartisan reporting, CNN has become everything and/or nothing to viewers. MSNBC and Fox are doing well because they have a market focus. Whether or not you agree with their specific political views (the products), Fox and MSNBC may be doing a better job in serving (customer satisfaction) their viewers (customers).
