‘Reliable Sources’ Reviews Changes at Fox News, CNN

Reliable SourcesThe shakeups at both Fox News and CNN were analyzed on “Reliable Sources” year-in-review show, with the panel agreeing cable news networks are trying to create new buzz to counter shrinking ratings.

TalkingPointMemo’s Hunter Walker highlighted Fox News moving Megyn Kelly to 9pm.

MSNBC’s Carlos Watson Launches New Website

stimulist_5-12.pngWebNewser talked to MSNBC’s Carlos Watson, who launched a new Website, The Stimulist, today.

Watson describes the target audience of the site, while also mentioning an MSNBC competitor:

Watson says The Stimulist is geared towards “a younger crowd” of professionals between the ages of 25-49. He calls his target audience “the change generation or the Obama generation.”

“I don’t see anyone else who’s focused in the same way,” on this group, he says. “If you’re conservative you feel like someone listened to all your hopes and dreams and gave you Fox News, if you’re a baby boomer and you’re liberal it’s like there’s someone who gave you NPR… but there’s nothing that’s perfectly crafted for this generation.”
