The end of cable news

Fox News hit a 12-year low in a key demographic this month, but viewership for all of the cable news channels is down, and the viewers who are left are getting older. Much older.

Do these numbers signal a shift in the cable news marketplace? Is the end of cable news networks near?

Could it be because the news outlets seem to have stopped covering news and instead are obsessed with one or two topics to the exclusion of all else?

For awhile it seemed like the only thing you heard on CNN was the missing airliner, on Fox News it was Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi, and on MSNBC it was Chris Christie’s bridge scandal.

Lost in all that hyper coverage was actual news reporting.
