So much for the predictions that Fox News, reportedly the favorite channel of former Vice President Dick Cheney, wouldn’t fare well in an Obama administration.

“I read some Internet postings that we were going to die and wither away, just because we’re not on the TVs at the White House,” Shine recalled with a chuckle.

Major Garrett, the network’s White House correspondent, attributes much of the viewership boost to the sheer volume of major stories that broke in the last month. In addition, “there very may well be a curiosity about the Fox brand interacting with the Obama brand,” he said. “There may be an expectation of a higher degree of skepticism.”

Bill Shine is the network’s senior vice president of programming.
