Please explain in great detail why, not just yes or no, give a reason.

I don't really pay attention to any of the media outlets. But, whenever I do watch clips from Fox News (whether it be part of a class or something), they always came across as sensationalist. If I were to go to a website such as National Review, I do find their theses to be equivalently conservative (at least, based on the handful of articles I've read there), but their rhetoric actually comes across as building a case, rather than simply using buzzwords that will influence their target audience. Granted, I've watched few Fox News clips and read few National Review articles, so my frame of reference isn't as great as it could be.

Whether or not that's 'corruption' or not depends on how you define corrupt. As I said, I don't pay attention to other mainstream media outlets, so they could be just as sensationalist too.

Well Fox can't or won't meet the requirements of the Canadian Radio Television Commission to have an in Canada arm of their media empire. Something Al-Jazera managed to do. What that means about Fox, I don't know.

I have a policy against cable news, and the main reasons would be Fox and MSNBC (CNN to a lesser degree). Fox's parent company is News Corp, which is owned in largest portions by Rupert Murdoch and Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia. Murdoch is and has been under investigations for illegal wire-taps in the UK, and based on the general views of Fox's viewership on Muslims, it seems rather odd in a sick way that their owner is a literal Saudi Prince. Beyond ethical and logical questions about its ownership, Fox also avoids discourse for entertainment value, so you get talking heads, which is also why I'm not a fan of MSNBC. MSNBC is a subsidiary of NBC, and Comcast owns the overall. So, both have questionable ownership, and both have clear agendas. CNN is supposed to be more moderate, and for a while, that was pretty true, but in the last couple of years, it's turned less into informative news channel and more into yet another talking head show. Unfortunately, humans like the mindless talking heads, so that probably won't change.
Huffington Post is probably less corrupt, but it does have a minor left slant. Personally, I love that they're relegating Trump to their entertainment section, excellent place to keep the clowns.

I mostly use Google to get my news. I have no cable and only watch the local news to get the weather forecast so I really wouldn't know.

CNN and MSNBC are all bad, but Fox News is disgraceful.

If you're conservative more than likely you don't mind Fox and if your liberal more than likely you don't mind MSNBC. I mainly watch Shepard Smith and Bill O'reilly for Fox. If I want a liberal opinion I have many options on news networks. A few liberals I would see just to get their opinions on topics would be Keith Olbermann when he was around. Now every once and a while I would see Rachel Maddow just to keep a balance between conservative and liberals opinions. At the end of the day you're better off looking at different sources and form your own judgement.
To stay on topic no better no worse than what you expect from American Media

Sources I use for information if the topic is something that interest me
Right minded
Fox
Daily Mail

Left minded
MSNBC
ABC

Just for business
Forbes
Reuters

Normally I tune in to KCAL or KTLA to see what's going on locally. But if I want National or World news, I'll watch Al Jazeera.

Fox News is not real news, but yeah, they're beyond corrupt.

I know of one person who works for Fox who starts apologizing whenever the conversation turns to "what do you do for a living"
