The Pew Research Center has put out their post-election report, and Bill O’Reilly was found to lead both the “favorite campaign journalist” and “least favorite campaign journalist” lists. Tom Brokaw and Sean Hannity were the other two to reach above 2% on the favorite list, and Katie Couric, Fox News in general, Rush Limbaugh and Keith Olbermann had more than 2% of the vote out of the least favorites.
Couric was #1 in a different category — Republicans’ least favorite reporter (this may have had something to do with it). O’Reilly won big on the Democrats’ list.
And what may signal a bad sign for the cablers — 82% of those polled said they will not miss following election news.
