Fox News reported on mother company News Corp’s $1 million donation to the Republican Governors Association, a partisan 527 designed to bolster GOP gubernatorial campaigns. Here is Bret Baier reporting on both Fox News and News Corp’s response to criticism from the Democrats, who now want Fox to use a disclaimer every time the cover a Governor’s race. Short version being: don’t hold your breath.
Fox News spokesman Brian Lewis: Nathan’s [Daschle, head of the DGA] stunt has run its course. His 15 minutes are up. Time to leave the stage.
News Corp spokesman Jack Horner: “…patently false that a corporate donation would have any bearing on our news-gathering activities at Fox News or any other of our properties.
Like I said, don’t hold your breath. Presumably should GE ever choose to make a similarly large donation to the Democratic party Fox will be equally understanding. Watch below.
