    It's Not Just Bias: Four Fox News Contributors Work For Romney

    Thanks to a new report by Media Matters, we now know that many Fox News contributors don't just play Romney campaign workers on TV, they actually do work for the Romney campaign.John Bolton, Elaine Chao, and Pete Snyder are all Fox News contributors, while Walid Phares is a terror analyst. Bolton is a foreign policy advisor and campaign surrogate. Phares is a special advisor for foreign policy and National Security Advisory Team, and the co-chair of the Middle East and North Africa working group. Chao is national chair of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for Romney, and Snyder is a surrogate. Plus, there's Karl Rove, co-founder of an anti-Obama super PAC and regular guest Jay Sekulow, who frequently appears on Fox to bash Obama, yet also serves as an advisor to Romney.

    Read all the details at Media Matters.

    Who cares? I fail to see why this is an issue.

    I agree. Why does this matter? They are contributors not anchors. Most contributors have bias.

    Agreed. FNC also has contributors who are unabashed liberals and work for the dark side.

    You have to be friggin kidding me?

    Dude, there are a lot of surrogates that work as contributors to the various networks that have connections to campaigns, parties or PACs. Another dose of faux outrage..

    This is just one off the top of my head.

    Contributor isn't the same thing as anchor.

    I don't see it as an issue, as long as Fox News makes it known that they are part of the Romney campaign.

    Rupert Murdoch (owner of the corporation that owns Fox News) has openly admitted that it was created with the intention of "shaping the agenda" to fit his opinions on how the world should change.

    as long as they don't pretend it's journalism, i have no problem with them selling their confirmation bias. same goes for msnbc; just don't call it journalism.

    Its commentary. In fact, thats what the vast majority of media is today anyway, especially on the network and cable news broadcasts.
