Hardly Balanced: News Corp. Gives $1 Million to GOP-aligned Chamber

The folks over at "fair and balanced" Fox News have a problem. Well, lots of problems, really, but we want to focus on only one at the moment.

Seems that their parent company, News Corp., is funding the Right in a big way this election season, making a new gift of $1 million to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce—this on top of a cool million previously donated to the GOP.

True, no one ever accused Rupert Murdoch of being a liberal. But $2 million in gifts to the conservative operators is hardly the sign of a "fair and balanced" news (read: entertainment) company.

Money—the mother's milk of politics. All Hail, News Corp.: buying the best conservatives money can buy.

Details here: FoxPAC doubles down.

Heck, that's probably just the diversionary million.
