Has the nightly cover on the network news been good or bad? Answering this question is a matter of perspective. The goal of the news is to inform. Therefore, if the news informs you to a reliable degree, you likely will be pleased with the coverage. If a particular network news program is not delivering on your expectations, then you likely will switch the channel and watch one of the other broadcasts.

Also, whether or not the editorial slant of the news agrees with your opinions or sensibilities will also figure into liking or disliking a news broadcast. Those that might disagree with editorial opinions may have a less than favorable opinion of a news program than others.

While it is true answering whether or not the network news is good or bad is often based on opinion, there are other factors that must be examined, That factor would be the shrinking audience for the network news. In recent years, the audience for the news has shrunk. Many millions of people are turning their attention towards cable news and the internet for their information. Often, this is because of disfavor with the nightly new. The other valid reason is audiences find these alternative sources of information more modern in their presentation.
