Fox News Leads With Imagery Of Police In 2020
The timeline below shows the total daily seconds of airtime (using a 7-day rolling average) that depicted police or military personnel somewhere onscreen since the start of last year. Fox News is the clear leader, spending 148.4 hours of airtime with police or military visible somewhere in the footage, compared with 103 hours on MSNBC and just 64 hours on CNN. Fox News spent about as much airtime on the police during the George Floyd protests as the other two combined. None of the three devoted substantial footage to the police response during the January 6 capitol attack.
