Fox News' parent company's $1 million gift to the Republican Governors'
Association is reportedly "one of the biggest ever given by a media
organization" - and big enough news it was covered
by every media outlet except, inexplicably, Fox. It's also sorrowful
confirmation that, no thanks to the Supreme Court, we have lost the
battle to corporations. The Democrats, who got zero, were so pissed they
wrote Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. to request a disclaimer
for Fox election "reporting" along the lines of, "This governor brought
to you by..." Jon Stewart made memorable Glenn Beck-esque hay as well.





Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
