For the people who are to lazy to click on the wikipedia link below here is the first paragraph. It is the format for Fox News and MSNBC:

Sensationalism is a type of editorial bias in mass media in which events and topics in news stories and pieces are over-hyped to increase viewership or readership numbers. Sensationalism may include reporting about generally insignificant matters and events that don't influence overall society and biased presentations of newsworthy topics in a sensationalist, trivial or tabloid manner.

Fox News gets the most viewers through Sensationalism. MSNBC, which does the same thing does not get as many viewers because their guy is in charge. The anger level is not as high.

"But they are only one news channel in a sea of at least 7 others. Before Fox News there were only 4 ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN, Fox has become popular because they are uniquely different than the others, that is why they aren't `mainstream`."

The fact that there are more hard rock bands than pop musicians doesn`t mean that rock is more mainstream than pop. However, the fact that more people LISTEN to pop music DOES make it mainstream.

Fox may have a unique perspective, but that makes them unique not mainstream. Having more viewers than the other more homogenized news channels, however, would- would it not?

This is an honest inquiry, BTW. I promise i`m not trolling. Fox`s Website, and Fox News + Fox Business News get more traffic/viewers than the other stations combined- yet they`re almost exclusively the only station i`ve heard use the term "mainstream media" as if they`re somehow not the norm, which the demonstrably are. It`s just confusing
