I’ve never believed that Rupert Murdoch or the executives that run FOX News and its owner News Corp (except Roger Ailes) were or are conservatives. They’re just opportunists. They found a niche with FOX News, and they milked it, laughing at conservatives all the way to the bank.
And today’s Wall Street Journal “Washington Wire” confirms it. The folks at Murdoch’s News Corp (owner of FOX News and the New York Post, among others) are the sixth largest donor source for the Hillary Rodhan Cankles Clinton campaign and that includes Cankles donor Murdoch, himself:
Even as Democrats have scuttled Fox News presidential debate out of bias concerns, employees of owner News Corp., helped by CEO Rupert Murdoch’s $2,300 donation, are Clinton’s sixth-largest corporate source of campaign funds . . . . Clinton leads presidential candidates of both parties with $413,000 from lobbyists, according to CRP, trailed by McCain’s $262,000.
