Concise explanation of what is wrong with Fox News?

I need a concise and fair explanation of just what is wrong with Fox News. Yes, I know what is wrong with it: they misrepresent people and information, cover news in a very biased manner while not admitting their biases, etc. I can talk about this all day, and Jon Stewart does a good job of taking the wind out of their sails. But I need a very concise argument that relies less on video clips and more on the core of what is wrong with the network. Ideally, this explanation will also address the biases of NBC, CNN, etc. while explaining why they are not as egregious in their offenses as Fox.
I've seen the Media Matters site, but I need something summarized, not a long list of Fox's errors.
I am making this argument to a conservative friend who relies on nearly exclusively on network as a 'news' source.
