News Corp Chairman & CEO Rupert Murdoch
Fox News and Wall Street Journal parent company News Corp donated $1 million to the Republican Governors Association in June,Bloomberg BusinessWeek reported.
The media conglomerate, controlled by Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch, took advantage of the unlimited donations corporations can give to governors' associations (from Bloomberg BusinessWeek):
The Republicans' biggest corporate donor was New York-based News Corp. Teri Everett, a spokeswoman, said the company "actively supports organizations that advocate a pro-job, low tax, economic growth agenda."
News Corp. opposes proposed federal rule changes that would weaken the position of its Fox network in negotiations with cable companies. Governors may have a stake in the issue.

I think I should worry more about those unions contributing to the dems...................
You should. The unions paid out the wazoo to get O elected and now it's time to pay the piper. They expected EFCA to be passed and signed by now. That fire breathing dragon is about to come out full force.

Sweets.... The media is overwhelmingly LIBERAL!!! So what if roughly 10% of reporters and news outlets lean conservative and have large donors to help support them!!?/ Does it really have to be 100% control in your world...or is this your PROGRESSIVE myopic agenda peeking through??!
One should really be more concerned with the "JournoLists" THEY have already PROVEN to use their controlling influence and shift the media focus off Obama and Democrats!!
