Washington Post: Pew has “taken the average viewer/consumer of all of these media outlets and plotted them on a continuum, trying to ascertain which outlets are favored by which side of the political spectrum.”
A few interesting takeaways:
- The most liberal-friendly media outlets, according to Pew’s study, are the New Yorker and Slate.
- 23 of the 32 outlets have a liberal-leaning audience, while nine have a more conservative one. That, more than anything else, is a testament to Fox’s domination on the political right and American conservatives’ distrust of other mainstream media outlets.
