Being on everywhere and being the sole news service for demographic sectors. It ads to the "echo chamber", the constant repetition and reinforcement of ideas.
No other ideas get airtime to dispute the "Fox facts" and the "Fox facts" become "common knowledge". The people who watch it "know" in their bones the "truth" because they've grown up with it, it's what they want to hear and it's what they hear wherever they go.

Propaganda in its purest form. 1984, eat your heart out.
