My Way News - Broadcasters busy with online tie-ins for election

How does using Facebook or Youtube keep you from losing viewers to Fox News? It's not the news that is being reported, it's the slant in which it is presented.

I recognize that Fox is biased, but understand why people would rather watch it than broadcast network news.)
