I've figured out FOX News.
Their cameramen suck.

No action shots. Every in-studio reporter faces the camera directly. No angles are allowed.

1. The cameras are all at knee level to shoot up the
skirts of the female anchors who are sitting around coffee tables. Really, look at what they are doing.

2. Fox "Rights" the news
A Republican friend of mine recently said he was going to "right" a book.

Of course, being the a-hole friend I am, I immediately jumped on right vs write...he corrected me by saying he invented a new verb meaning "to right" is to write a book from a completely right wing point of view.

I posited that he must mean like Fox News RIGHTS the news....he hasn't responded yet. :9

6. Older viewers are not comfortable with quick cuts
Say, between 2 cameras, or between anchors and live shots. Voice-overs confuse folks without good hearing. Mis-identifing political afiliations in the on-screen graphic works very well, too

7. Off angle shots are off limits. You would see their noses grow. nt

10. My grandpa watches it because the cameras don't move and don't do angles...
His vision is awful and it's easy on the eys from what he says. He's 90 years old and a diehard repub. I love him dearly, but his notions drive me crazy.
