TV news organizations included in the MyersBizNet survey included ABC News, BBC World News, Bloomberg Media, CNN, Fox News, NBCU Live (News), and The Weather Channel. AOL Huffington Post was included for benchmark purposes, in anticipation of increased TV and digital video integration in future MyersBizNet studies on advertisers' perceptions. The full report includes details on 22 distinct respondent groups.

Based on their perceptions, the advertiser and agency executives rated each organization (with which they have a business relationship) on seven performance attributes. Performance ratings are based on the percent of total respondents rating each news organization 4/5 (top two-box).
