Fox News PAC Hosted Fundraiser For Democratic Senator

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA)

Last year, Politico noted that News America/Fox PAC, Political Action Committee of Fox News parent company News Corporation, was slowing down in donations, possibly thanks to overseas scandals.

Sunlight Foundation’s Party Time obtained an invitation to Senator Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) “11th Annual Crawfish Fest,” a large fundraiser she puts on. The invitation lists News America/Fox PAC as a co-sponsor of the fundraiser, meaning it donated at least $1,000 to the senator. We wonder what News Corporation is hoping to get out of Landrieu in return.

    The Murdochs are pragmatic, and contribute to Dems from time to time, especially if they are Blue Dogs or probably unseatable, and Landrieu is both. I have noticed a trend towards more honesty and less rubber stamping of GOP boilerplate over at Fox lately, which has me wondering whether the ongoing Leveson commision in the UK isn’t bound to eventually stumble onto something that reaches across the pond and forces the FCC to review Rupert’s, and/or James’s, fitnes to be a license holder. If that’s the case, the GOP alone probably won’t be enough to keep their empire alive. Any Democrat, no matter how centrist, who sided with Fox’s continued existance, as is, should be tarred, feathered and run out of the party on the proverbial rail.
