Fox effect

The Fox effect is a theory in political science and media that postulates that the development of the popular 24-hour international television news channel known as Fox News Channel has had a major impact on the conduct of both domestic politics in the United States and news coverage by FNC's industry competitors in the United States. Fox effect owes its name to a similar term CNN effect, coined several years earlier, which refers to a theory in political science and media that postulates that the development of the popular 24-hour international television news channel known as Cable News Network or CNN had a major impact on the conduct of states' foreign policy in the late Cold War period and that CNN and its subsequent industry competitors have had a similar impact in the post-Cold War era.
