“The going rate for ads on cable news shows seem to suggest liberal viewers are cheaper than conservative viewers, reports BizPac Review.

…at least, that’s a likely take given the vast disparity.

Again, three times as much.

As reported by AdWeek, ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ earned $13,779 per 30-second spot — the highest average unit cost among all cable news shows in the quarter.

Progressive darling Maddow commands a paltry unit cost of just $4,193.

The question being, exactly what does this say about MSNBC viewers, as opposed to Fox News Channel viewers.”
