    Now, I could understand them giving a little bit to this and a little bit to that, but News Corp has just become the biggest corporate donor to the RGA. In contrast, the biggest corporate donor to the DGA is a union that does not report news whatsoever obviously. Also those that are curious, liberal media MSNBC's parent company GE made a 105k donation to the Democrats this year...but oh wait they made a 105k donation to the Republicans too.
    LOL Are you seriously going to claim MSNBC is unbiased?

    The threads were merged and moved here because of the wapo article above (from which the thread takes its title). The other posts just happened to be earlier chronologically, so they show up at the beginning.

    Anyone who still believes that they are a real news organization, instead of a conservative editorial station, is really fooling themselves.

    (Mind you, as I have said in other threads, they have every right to be biased and promote a viewpoint. It's the hypocrisy of pretending to be unbiased that bothers me.)
    Since you want to talk about parent companies and slam their other companies, GE the parent company of MSNBC gave half a million to Obama alone and was one of his biggest contributors.

    General Electric $499,130

    In 2010 alone they gave over 1 million to democrats and over 2 million in 2008.

    You don't think Ted Turner gave to the Dems? You don't think MSNBC sits in on Obama's meetings?
    Actually MSNBC did give to the dems...but they gave to the Republicans also. Your question however implies that you are ok with corruption in the media.

    Also by your own link, not only has GE given to republicans as well but many years their Republican contributions outpaced Democrats. Alo as their name implies, they are in several fields, with NBC Universal being one that makes up a small part of the overall company whereas News Corp well, as their name implies their biggest winners are news and of course entertainment with Fox.

    True but they are not the ones claiming to be the most fair and balance network out there. If they would get rid of that slogan I would have no problem with it.

    Before I embarass you, are you claiming News Corp has never given to Democrats? Thats your position?

    This is PAC money as the Opensecrets clealy states:
    This table lists the top donors to this candidate in the 2008 election cycle. The organizations themselves did not donate , rather the money came from the organization's PAC, its individual members or employees or owners, and those individuals' immediate families. Organization totals include subsidiaries and affiliates.

    Facts are a pesky thing:



    Murdoch’s News Corp. gives $1 mil. to Republican govs - Yahoo! News

    those other donations really are peanuts.
