That's fairly meaningless. Does the article account for the fact Fox is the only conservative news network, and therefore has a monopoly on conservative cable news? The more liberal news networks have to compete with each other, thus splitting overall viewership between the networks.
The article also doesn't account for the fact that young Americans (who typically lean left) often get their news from the internet (such as YouTube or other websites), rather than from cable or network television, while conservatives (who are often older) aren't as inclined to new media. I, for example, do not have cable, and haven't for years. Everything I watch is through streaming video (Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, YouTube, etc.).
As of right now, CNN has 1.7 million subscribers on YouTube, while Fox News only has 440,000. The Young Turks (another liberal news organization) has over 3 million subscribers.
So while it's cute that you're trying to imply that dominating an increasingly outdated medium---due to monopolizing one specific demographic---actually means something, it really doesn't.
