Media mogul Rupert Murdoch gives $1 million to U.S. Republicans

Raising questions about Fox News' impartiality, media magnate Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., Fox's parent company, has donated $1 million to the Republican Governors Association (RGA), reported the BBC.

The RGA is using such donations to help get Republicans elected this November.

The donation is one of the largest ever from a media company, according to The New York Times.

Democrats denounced the contribution, saying "the 'Fair and Balanced' tagline of Fox News was rendered utterly meaningless by the donation," reported UPI.

Jack Horner, a spokesman for Murdoch's News Corp., was quoted in the Washington Post, saying: "It's patently false that a corporate donation would have any bearing on our news-gathering activities at Fox News or any other of our properties."
