Uncommon Sense

politics and society are, unfortunately, much the same thing

Ignore Viacom’s disproportionate contributions to Democrats, just bash Fox

Jon Stewart Rips Fox’s GOP Contribution, Ignores Viacom’s Dem Donations
August 19, 2010 by Noel Sheppard

Comedian Jon Stewart on Wednesday bashed Fox News for parent company News Corporation’s $1 million donation to the Republican Governors Association.

Unfortunately, Stewart failed to inform his viewers that Viacom, the parent company of Comedy Central, has so far given disproportionately to Democrats this year.

Also missing in the “Daily Show” host’s attack of FNC and Glenn Beck was that News Corp. prior to this contribution had historically given more to Democrats than Republicans.

If Stewart is indeed concerned with “following the money,” maybe he should look at the contributions by his own company.

After all, according to Open Secrets, Viacom’s Political Action Committee has so far this year contributed 62 percent of its money to Democrats and only 38 percent to Republicans

As long as political contributions are less than $1 million it’s okay to favor Democrats nearly two to one.

Media donations favor Democrats 100-1
