Fox News is not known for its insightful analysis, but has provided reporting of deep political relevance.

COVID-19

In July 2020, Fox reported that "A person who died in a motorcycle accident was added to Florida's COVID-19 death count, according to a state health official."[1]

9/11

Full article: Rated 4/5 9-11

On the day of 9/11, Fox News interviewed a highly suspicious "witness" who seemed unusually well versed in what was later to become the official narrative, that the buildings had collapsed due to fire. He appeared to be in the company of at least two handlers.[2]

One reporter for Fox News commented about the supposed crash scene at Shanksville "It looks like there's nothing there, except for a hole in the ground."[3]

Fox News announced one minute before it happened that "we are getting word from New York right now that another building has collapsed". Having described the collapse, they switched to a live video stream which showed the WTC7 collapse, but the news anchors were unphased and continued commenting as if nothing remarkable had happened.[4]

Amerithrax

Fox News mentioned that Richard Lambert, former FBI head of the Amerithrax investigation was suing the FBI alleging malpractice.[5]

7/7

Full article: 7-7

While interviewed on Fox News, former Mossad agent, "terrorism" expert Juval Aviv once remarked that "It's easy to put a truck bomb, as we did, er, as happened in London."[6][7]

War Profiteers

Global Research reports on an investigation by the Public Accountability Initiative into war punditry which found that in "23 appearances on Fox News there was not a single attempt to disclose industry ties" of 'experts' to weapons manufacturers.[8]

George Carlin“Now, to balance the scale, I'd like to talk about some things that bring us together, things that point out our similarities instead of our differences. 'Cause that's all you ever hear about in this country. It's our differences. That's all the media and the politicians are ever talking about—the things that separate us, things that make us different from one another. That's the way the ruling class operates in any society. They try to divide the rest of the people. They keep the lower and the middle classes fighting with each other so that they, the rich, can run off with all the fucking money! Fairly simple thing. Happens to work. You know? Anything different—that's what they're gonna talk about—race, religion, ethnic and national background, jobs, income, education, social status, sexuality, anything they can do to keep us fighting with each other, so that they can keep going to the bank! You know how I define the economic and social classes in this country? The upper class keeps all of the money, pays none of the taxes. The middle class pays all of the taxes, does all of the work. The poor are there just to scare the shit out of the middle class. Keep 'em showing up at those jobs.”George Carlin
