Measuring The Gap

By Brian 

Earlier today Fox News questioned TBS CEO Phil Kent‘s measurement of the gap between FNC and CNN. Kent said CNN had made “substantial progress” toward closing the gap, but FNC said the gap had widened since the start of the Middle East conflict. Here are the statistics, courtesy CNN, demonstrating how the gap has narrowed year-over-year:
