** Pew Media Research found that among identified Conservatives, Fox is the first source of news for 40% of them. For liberals, it's only 3%. That said, among Americans when party is not accounted for (conservative, liberal, and NoPartyGiven) it tops the charts at 19% of viewership, more than twice of CNN's 8%. Common reasons for this include the above mentioned monopoly on right-wing media, watching multiple news sources for coverage, and JustHereForGodzilla factor of wanting to see them say something silly.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Megyn Kelly, Shepard Smith and Chris Wallace are the only working reporters that even got a smidgen of respect from the left wing for being the OnlySaneMan serving on the show network. The fact that Smith has a longstanding reputation for never tolerating political spin and that Kelly came forward against [[BadBoss Roger Ailes]]' sexual harassment scandal (despite being incredibly risky for her career) doesn't hurt. Chris Wallace got some praise for fairly moderating the final 2016 presidential debate.
** In January 2017, Megyn Kelly capitalised on her reputation for being the fairest-minded and least-impressed-by-BS anchor at Fox News by...leaving Fox News for NBC.
* OvershadowedByControversy: Roger Ailes probably thought that he would go down in history as the guy who founded Fox News and built it into the most successful news network in the USA (as of the beginning of 2017.) However, he will now be forever remembered by the public as the guy who sexually harassed many Fox News female anchors and reporters.
