Sadly, people just pick and choose info. that supports an agenda. In this case an agenda against Fox News. Present all of the Facts!!! and the story
and hit attempt on Fox sort of loses its punch. Eh??
Hello jibeho, while I don't totally disagree with you, the difference between Fox and the other's is that Fox comes out and criticizes those
associated with Alawaleed as evil and anyone connected is guilty by association.
So Alawaleed is the second largest shareholder in Newscorp, guess who the first is?
Kingdom Holding, a Saudi investment firm.
Guess who is the chairman? Alawlaeed
Now it may be true that all news media is guilty of misperception and blame, but does it not make sense that the largest and most powerful(Newscorp)
of these organizations are responsible for the most
bs put out?
Here is a list of Newscorp co's:

Boy, there sure are a lot of "Fox's" in the Tv/Cable shows.
Now who has more power than this to effect the minds of the people?
Therefore, imo, the biggest co is responsible for putting out the most(quantity wise) garbage.
So no, objective analysis does not "decrease the punch," it increases it.
At least that is how I see it.
And yes Alwaleed is all over the place, but he is invested in the 2nd most powerful media force on the planet, which puts him in a unique position of
AND, he is the chairman of Kingdom Holding, the largest shareholder of Newscorp. Do I see a picture forming here? Yes
Does it put Fox news at a disadvantage when it comes to accountability? Yes
Edit To Add:
I think my point may have gotten scattered, so let me reiterate. Yes, all
the media is responsible for putting out garbage, thus follows the
logic that the "most powerful and watched" company is putting out the most
garbage. So yes, Fox news is more responsible for misperception
and sensationalism than all the others.
So the criticism is not "picking on," it is proportional.
