Because in the absence of evidence, it is just that - a conspiracy theory. You're asserting that Fox and the Govt (or at least some of it's agencies) are conspiring, but have provided no real no evidence to support it, hence theory.

That they're all using the same method of communicating the block is evident (they all return a 404 with the same 'reference' number). The underlying software being used to generate their blocklist isn't something that's immediately identifiable from the responses being returned.
In point of fact, foxnews appear to be blocking all tor exits (or I've been very lucky in the exits I've selected) whilst senate.gov and usps.com appear to discriminate between exits (some are blocked, others aren't). That at the very least, suggests completely different policies (even if the software affecting the block were to be the same).
Aside from a similar error message, you've not provided anything to show a 'significant' connection between the three. It doesn't mean that there isn't, but the point being made is that you haven't provided anything to show that there is.
It's equally possible that both Fox and the US Govt have purchased 'bad behaviour' blocking software from the same private company.
