Rupert Murdoch (D) – Newscorp?

October 25, 2007

Is anyone else out there left scratching their heads at the fact that billionaire Rupert Murdoch, owner of Newscorp (Mother corporation to the far-right reaching Fox News), is contributing funds solely to Democratic primary candidates? Is his interest in catering to Republicans fueled by profit? From a business perspective, pandering to the fundies is a brilliant move. It’s also %100 intellectually dishonest. I have to wonder if the guy’s conducting a large-scale social experiment or just plain old batshit crazy, or both. It seems to me that donating money with his left hand while telling news from an Unfair and Unbalanced perspective with his right is fundamentally counter-productive. Especially when Fox News (unfortunately) shapes the political opinions of such a capacious portion of the American population.

Next thing you know, Ann Coulter’s going to start donning a hijab and Rush Limbaugh will be caught masturbating to Jesus porn. Either way, they’ll both still be assholes.

  2. No. Correlation does not equal causation, and that wasn’t even implied here!
