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.
That only means MSNBC should be more ashamed of what they became. Then the fact journalism going so far left is what brought FOX news into existence is also a factor.
