May 21 - "Decision-Maker Week" on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast continues tomorrow with Fox News SVP of news editorial, Michael Clemente.

We'll talk to Clemente about the network's dominating ratings since the Obama administration began — leaving them eyeing the outright cable network lead rather than just cable news.

Clemente left ABC News in February to join FNC, and has already taken on more responsibility at the network, since John Moody moved to a job within News Corp.

Clemente talked about the success of Fox News. "We usually say here and elsewhere, it always feels better to win," he said. "Winning in this business means getting the story right, and people understand that over time. I think, they understand that our people care about what they're saying, they're as interested in what they're reporting on as the viewers might be, and it all comes through. At the end of the day, when we're done doing our jobs, and you get a report on the numbers...it's a good feeling."

Also discussed: the differences (and similarities) between network and cable news, some possible weekend programming changes, advice Moody gave Clemente and, why not, the American Idol finale last night.
