Fox News’ factory farming industry will likely thrive after Fox News leaves the Fox Business Network, according to an analysis from the research firm Public Citizen.
The analysis finds that the industry could generate $1.3 billion in new jobs in the United States and the U.K. over the next five years, while also contributing $1 billion to U.S. manufacturing output.
Fox News and Fox Business currently have no plans to leave Fox Business and would be able to continue broadcasting from their existing studios, but the industry is likely to undergo a seismic shift if the news network leaves.
Fox Business has seen its ratings soar over the past few years, with advertisers paying more attention to the network’s news coverage.
And the network is the most watched in the business, according a report from market research firm Kantar Media, which said that the number of people tuning in for Fox Business’ prime-time coverage jumped 37% in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016.
A Fox Business spokesperson declined to comment on the analysis.
