Fox News To Formally Become Subsidiary of Republican Party September 20, 2007Posted by chuckwh in Fox News, John Kerry, Murdoch, News and politics, Rupert Murdock, taser.
In what most in and out of the news industry consider to be a formality, Fox News announced today that they would act as the official news arm of the Republican Party. The announcement was made by Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett after commenting on the John Kerry taser incident during which he announced to the world that the youth tasered after posing tough questions to John Kerry got what was coming to him.
After his rant, Jarrett then announced, “And I’m happy to let our viewers know that the Fox News Network has officially been designated as the official news network of the Republican Party.”
Media and political observers say this is new territory because of the obvious conflicts of interest, but Rupert Murdoch, a conservative Australian purveyor of titillating media and the owner of Fox News, is reportedly unconcerned, telling associates that there is “little difference between today and yesterday, aside from a few pieces of legal paper.”
There will apparently be no real change in programming, according to reports.
