This might make a good wingnut on wingnut crime entry as well. Worldnutdaily poobah Joseph Farah says that Fox News is not really conservative at all. In fact, they support Democrats! Or at least, employees of News Corp., which includes not just Fox News but Fox Sports and magazines and film production companies and much else. Which proves…well, something.
Many even believe Fox leans to the right and provides news they can’t get anywhere else.
But is Fox really different from the rest of the media? Or has it been successful merely at positioning itself as different?Would it surprise you that this pattern was about the same in 2010 and 2008?
There’s no question other media are even more skewed to the left than is News Corp. CNN, NBC, ABC and CBS are even more in the tank for so-called “progressive” politics. Nevertheless, I’m sure it will be shocking to many Americans just how supportive of the political status quo and the Democratic Party agenda News Corp. truly is.
News Corp. donated more money to Obama than to any other American politician. But this wasn’t a new development in 2011 and 2012. In fact, Rupert Murdoch’s company has been donating more to Democrats since 1989.
Yes, those evil liberals at Fox News…I mean, at every business owned by the parent company of Fox News…proves something important, apparently.
