Given that NewsCorp donates over a million to the GOP and three of the four leading Republican Presidential hopefuls are on Murdochs Payroll, does the GOP own Fox or does Murdoch own the GOP?

Good question, but I know that the Obama administration owns NBC after the $140 billion bailout to GE.

The GOP should be paying FOX for their endorsements.

Neither. Rupert Murdoch is a savy businessman who offers a high demand product which appeals to conservatives in a market filled with liberal media networks. Its all about profits and Murdoch is the winner. Law of supply and demand.

So maybe the reason Fox News has not made any noise about this is because they also are under unAmerican influence?

"The Washington Times, Fox News, and other corporations with significant foreign ownership (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100117/ap_on_bi_ge/ml_saudi_alwaleed_news_corp - broken link) already work full-time to turn American public opinion against our own government. "Free trade" advocacy groups with funding from outside our borders work to get us to open our markets to imports that close our factories, outsource our jobs, lower our standard of living and drive us into ever-increasing debt. We have seen this with "grassroots" lobbying on important issues like climate change, trying to make people think that the science is a "hoax": see Grassroots' Opposition to Clean Energy Reform Bankrolled by Foreign Oil, Petro-Governments (http://climateprogress.org/2010/01/13/%E2%80%98grassroots%E2%80%99-opposition-to-clean-energy-reform-bankrolled-by-foreign-oil-petro-governments/ - broken link)."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And despite the rhetoric over the threat of Islamic fundamentalists and Sharia, Fox News has direct links to the Islamic world.

"The Saudi billionaire whose investment firm is one of the biggest stakeholders in Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. said he is looking to expand his alliances with the media giant, in the latest indication that his appetite for growth remains robust even as his company retrenches.
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a nephew of the Saudi king and who was listed last year by Forbes as the world's 22nd richest person, met with News Corp.'s chief executive Rupert Murdoch on Jan. 14 in a meeting that "touched upon future potential alliances with News Corp.," according to a statement released by his Kingdom Holding Co. late Saturday."

Murdoch owns fox news for his right wing propaganda outlet. Any thought of the "fair and balanced" slogan has gone down the tubes now from his contribution.

Well left wing propaganda and it's comrades in the
media along with the democratic party really do not
have much to show for the last nineteen months
that's a positive for America

With their attitude of 'Big Government' will solve all of
the current issues along with a wide open check book
I won't be a bit surprised to see more of the left showing
up on the FOX network between now and November
