Following the dots on Fox-GOP tie

Fox News' parent corporation gave $1 million to the Republican Governors Association. That was a homerun pitch for Jon Stewart. It readily validated the pre-existing view of Fox as a Republican mouthpiece, though you'll note here that previously Fox's parent had split contributions roughly evenly between Democrats and Republicans.

I think this contribution says something not just about Fox and Republicans but about the ascendancy of Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour in Republican affairs. The RGA is his mega-rich playpen in an election year in which Republicans seem likely to make monumental gains. He badly wants to run for president in 2012.
