    Which of course you provide no proof of whatsoever. You haven't even proved it effected Fox News in any way shape or form.

    Come back when you have even the slightest bit of evidence to back up your claims.

    The point is that it wasn't corporate money as Fox donation was.

    Gee, Imagine that, companies contributing to a political party yet no concerns about NBC contributing to Obama or their CEO sitting on the President's economic council. If not mistaken Ruppert Murdoch contributed to the Hillary Clinton Campaign, now I realize that isn't corporation money but I doubt that liberals will consider the head of Fox News Corp contributing to Hillary is no big deal.

    Parent company. Not Fox news. Please read it again.

    My understanding is that GE gave equally to both party's.

    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.)
    Actually, the individual owner did, not the corporation. How much did Ted Turner donate to various Democrat candidates?

    About the lobbying, ethics, or both?

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    GE is effectively bankrolling air america thru MSNBC. So they put on TV what is a money loser to placate the President. That is millions of what could be called "soft dollars".

    I do not blame GE, they had big issues making sure they could keep GE finance which is about 30$ of profits. In addition they rely on a lot of government contracts. Seeing how the President paid back the unions with billions of taxpayer money, Immalt made a good business decision kissing up to Obama.
