When GOP Propaganda And $2 Million Are Not Enough

Reported by Ellen - October 15, 2010 -

We've previously reported about News Corporation's $1 million donation to the Republican Governors Association and its $1 million donation to the GOP-aligned U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Now we have learned that News Corp. has donated another $250,000 to the RGA.

Lee Fang at Think Progress wrote, "News Corporation chief Rupert Murdoch recently stated that he directed his company’s donation in order to help his friend John Kasich, the Republican nominee for governor in Ohio. As ThinkProgress’ Ian Millhiser noted, there actually are laws against corporate managers treating a publicly-traded corporation as if it were their own personal bank account."
