I think we both agree that Fox has scandals/is scandalous. That is a given. However, the other stations are not immune, they are not above the spin, and should be approached also with care and caution.
I agree. I think that news media should always be read critically, to look for spin, slant, and logic (or the lack of it). I would never suggest that any news network is infallible.
Sadly, Fox News has such a bad history that nothing they say can be trusted unless it's been corroborated to a source that they don't control, a source that isn't right wing spin (such as the fake science the GOP funded think tanks invent), or a source that cites Fox as a purveyor of information. Fox is yellow journalism through and through, and can't be trusted at all. If Fox told me it was snowing, I'd check another station or look outside before believing it, their reporting is so often fundamentally wrong.
The other major news media outlets in this country don't have these sorts of allegations and scandals. They aren't always correct, sometimes they have a slant, and sometimes a anchor disgraces himself/herself. But I haven't seen a single major scandal involving a news media outlet (an entire broadcast network, newspaper, etc) that isn't owned by Rupert Murdock (the guy that owns Fox) in a long, long time. The problems that other media outlets have are occasional and usually involve a few people. The problems that Murdock's companies (such as the scandal in the UK involving hacking voicemail
accounts) have are pervasive and often percolate through entire organizations.
