    It’s more complicated than that. Yes, corporate execs were pressured to get earnings higher, and that meant being profitable (or at least closer to profitability) on all time segments, news included. But it was no coincidence that all the networks, staffed by producers and reporters from the same schools teaching the same perspective, broadcast the same news duration, albeit with different faces. That continued until an upstart entrepreneur offered a news network with a different perspective that attracted an underserved demographic. Its bias was no worse than the mainstream’s, but it was jarringly different — and jarringly popular, drawing in a lot of viewers and a lot if dollars in advertising. Its success was infuriating to the mainstream, because it clashed so much with what they’d been taught. And the owners were so invested in multiple ways that emulating the competition was problematic. Even so, it became apparent that the best strategy for profits and popularity was to go to extremes in whichever narrative they used — progressive or populist.
