Broadcast Time for Obamacare vs. Typhoon Haiyan
Pew just released a study on how four major cable news networks divvied up air time to spend on two big stories last week (Nov 11-15): the Obamacare changes and the deadly aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. 80 hours of programming were studied: 4 hours per channel per day, 1 during daytime and 3 during primetime. The findings speak for themselves in the chart above.
The two channels with strong ideological identities in prime-time—liberal MSBNC and conservative Fox News—spent far more time on the politically-charged health insurance story than the overseas disaster. And the two organizations that built a brand on global reporting—CNN and Al Jazeera America, an offshoot of the Qatar-based Al Jazeera media network—spent considerably more time on the tragedy in the Philippines.
