There are legitimate, important news stories Fox covers well that the other networks have at best
refused to touch - first to mind is the gun-smuggling conspiracy that is currently crashing down on the Dept. of Justice. Fox has been dogging that hard and actually doing some digging... the other networks have either been ignoring it completely or releasing DOJ press releases as "reporting", completely blithe to the fact (or complicit in doing so) that the press releases are part and parcel of the coverup that's being torn into by the House Oversight Committee.
On the other hand, Fox was the last place I'd expect to get impartial coverage of anything during the Bush years. They sure didn't care much about Valerie Plame, the DOJ Attorney firings, or pretty much anything else that reflected badly on POTUS 43 or his cronies.
And then you have NPR, which is supposed to be impartial by not being beholden to advertisers, yet is apparently staffed at the top levels by people that end up resigning when political extremist and racist ideological rants they went off on leak out to the public. Yay.
