Fox News silent on News Corp.'s huge donation to GOP

Fox News silent on News Corp.'s huge donation to GOP | Media Matters for America

Following reports that Fox News' parent company News Corp. donated $1 million to the Republican Governors Association, Fox News has not mentioned the contribution, according to searches of the TVEyes and Nexis databases. Several other news outlets have covered the donation, which is reportedly "one of the biggest ever given by a media organization."

I think you work for Media Matters, the liberal opinion-based tabloid... you seem to quote from them a lot considering they are like tabloid news for liberals...Murdoch did what was best for News Corps, not only that, News Corps has donated MORE to democrats than republicans and this sort of even things out considering the News Corps STILL has given more money to democrats...

"Murdoch began by pointing out that News Corp.’s PAC gave more money to Democrats than Republicans"

If you consider Fox News as evil, then you must think that Democrats are more evil...

About the same that they gave to Republicans (give or take a couple of bucks).
TV, Radio and Telco's all need the help of all parties, to get their way with the FCC and other regulators.

Soros, the 'spooky dude' gives $1.8 million to NPR to buy like minded 'reporters'. No problem with that?
Taxpayers question why $487 million of their tax money goes to NPR and PBS

Campaign finance reform is simple.

Only people who can vote can give.
If Rupert wants to give a billion of his money, let him.
If you want to give, and you can vote, give it all.
But corporations, foreigners and infants can not.

And to make it even clearer.
You can only give to people you can vote for.

But neither party would want this.

Obama proposed campaign finance reform but the mostly righty Supreme Court allowed it...

So what? Soros gave more than that to the Democrats.
