The difference being that NBC has a long, and storied history in journalism. In fact, NBC was credited with the first broadcast news program, with Lowell Thomas, in 1940. Then they had the Huntley-Brinkley report with reporters John Chancellor, Frank McGee, Edwin Newman, Sander Vanocur, etc. Along with CBS, where they had Ed Murrow and Walter Cronkite, they invented American journalism, which was the best in the world, and the model by which other countries news organs measured themselves.

Fox has never been anything other than Murdoch's propaganda tool for Right Wing ideology and dogma. It was spawned specifically for that purpose, and has never even pretended at authentic journalism.
