What exactly makes Fox News more trustworthy than any other news source?

Update:

Jas B: I don't think Fox is any more trustworthy than any other news source.  I'm simply curious as to the reasoning its listeners actually listen in.

    What exactly makes you think that Fox News is more trustworthy than any other news source?

    They called the virus a "hoax", "democratic hysteria", no worse than the flu.  they said that the coronavirus outbreak was a ‘scam’ invented as a way to ‘impeach’ President Trump.

    The network is being sued, accused of ‘wilfully and maliciously’ engaging in a ‘campaign of deception and omission regarding the danger of the international proliferation of the novel coronavirus.’

    Fox News has is a major platform for climate change denial.

    Fox News in April 2018 when it was revealed primetime host Sean Hannity had defended Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen on air without disclosing that Cohen was Hannity's lawyer.  Hannity called the search of Cohen's property illegal, which was a lie.

    During Glenn Beck's tenure at Fox News, he became one of the most high-profile proponents of conspiracy theories about George Soros, All without providing a shred of credible evidence.

    They called Obama a terrorist, Muslim, claimed he was building FEMA concentration camps for Republicans, that Obamacare would result in "death panels", that he was not born in the US.  The lies they told about the Obama's would fill a book, a big one.

    I could of course list many more examples of Fox's lies over many years, all of which are extensively documented with videos.

    So again I ask what  exactly makes you think that Fox News is more trustworthy than any other news source?

    "more trustworthy" Is debatable. But, for starters, they tout their talking heads as entertainment, opinion, talking heads. Where say MSNBC and CNN, both tout their talking heads as news anchors. Just from the labels they use, they are already starting the deception.

    I actually think their news is on point with Chris Wallace and others. Hannity and Tucker are obviously opinion and biased but anchors on MSNBC and CNN like Stephanie Ruhle and Wolf Blitz are supposed to be reporting news but end up being the same as Hannity and Tuckery during the news. 

    So its like liberal media is basically 100% hannity and fox news is only 75% hannity even though they actually employ Hannity LOL

    They are fair and balanced. Their investigative reporting is fantastic. OAN is quickly becoming another great source of news as well. 

    Compare that to CNN, who had settled a 9 figure lawsuit for fake news.

    CNN had to settle a lawsuit against Nick Sandmann for slandering and lying about him on air because he is white.

    They're not. No news source is trustworthy.

    I've heard the following description about Fox News.  Fox News isn't fair and balanced - it * is * the balance.

    Take it as you want.
