Their 'news' comes from the same place as every other 'news channel'. All of our news comes from the same place! Reuters and AP. Since one owns the other, we really only have one source of news.

The rest is narrative. Narrative IS NOT NEWS... but you can listen to someone's bullshit and get a lot of news the 'other side' (regardless of which side) is ignoring. Every media outlet promotes a political narrative and all of them insist there is no such narrative. What I'm asking is why is it okay for everyone else but not okay for Fox?

I agree it's disingenuous.
