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.
