Help Media Matters Air Ad About News Corp's Donation To Republican Governors Association

Reported by Ellen - August 23, 2010 -

Dear readers, I don't like to use this blog for fundraising and I very rarely do it. But Media Matters' proposed ad for the O'Reilly Factor is just too good and too central to the purpose of this blog not to get behind. As we previously reported, Fox News' parent company recently donated $1 million to the Republican Governors' Association . That's shocking enough. But Fox News has failed to discuss this corporate involvement in politics beyond 37-seconds of airtime. Media Matters' ad tries to correct that imbalance. We see it as helping Fox News report so that its own viewers can decide.

Media Matters wrote,

Media Matters for America has decided to make sure Fox viewers are aware of News Corps financial links to Republicans. We are considering purchasing a national ad to air next week during The O'Reilly Factor to share this vital information with for viewers. Will you help us?

You can donate here. Video of the ad is below.
