Think Progress has a graph of Nexis data from the last three months showing how Fox News disproportionately uses negatvie language about Islam:


It is important to not that the word 'Fox' should never be associated with the word 'News'. The data above is clear evidence that Fox is engaged in a nasty smear game in order to gain viewers, not report on actual news events.
