News Corp Donates $1 Million to Republican Governor's Assoc.

  • 16 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

From The Washington Post, via Bloomberg:

Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. gave $1 million to the Republican Governors Association (RGA) this year, Bloomberg reported. The company owns Fox News and the New York Post. (You can see the full IRS filing here.)

The filings show that the RGA raised $58 million between Jan. 1, 2009, and June 30, 2010. The Democratic Governors Association raised $40 million during the same period…

…News Corp’s Political Action Committee, News America-Fox PAC, has given to Democrats and Republicans, but in far smaller sums, Yahoo’s Michael Calderone reports: “The PAC has given $48,000 to Democrats running for House seats this year and $40,700 to Republicans. In Senate races, the PAC contributed $30,500 to Democrats and $25,500 to Republicans.”

We’re not going to sit here and say that News Corp doesn’t have the right to donate such a massive amount of money to Republicans. But we will say that this should pretty much end the debate about whether or not Fox News is fair and balanced. And that’s okay — Fox News can be whatever it wants to be — but nobody should pretend that it isn’t right-wing news anymore.

As far as Colorado is concerned, none of that money is coming here anyway.

    1. So much for that non-secular claim:

      On July 12, 2010, Zuckerman claimed in an interview that he helped to write one of President Barack Obama’s political speeches[9]. Long-time Obama speechwriters Jon Favreau and Ben Rhodes disputed the claim and asserted that neither “has ever met or spoken to Mort Zuckerman.” Zuckerman later published a clarification of his remarks, stating that his help had come in the form of private conversations with various political officials in which he had offered advice and perspective on different issues.

            1. you mean that Zuckerman has hacked your account and is posting as “The Beej?”

              You should let ColoradoPols know about this, maybe get him banned.
