Our hard work paid off: Fox News finally caved and admitted to viewers that its parent company is funding the Republican Governors Association’s efforts to defeat Democrats!

During Tuesday morning’s “fair and balanced” broadcast covering gerrymandering tactics and an extended clip of Gov. Haley Barbour (RGA Chair) bragging about Republican prospects this November, a Fox anchor stated:

“By way of full disclosure, News Corp., parent company of this network, has contributed one million dollars to the Republican Governors Association.”

We put the pressure on Fox and friends and won this battle — thanks to your tireless support.

But that doesn’t change the fact that the RGA is $1 million richer. And even though News Corp. owner Rupert Murdoch flat-out admitted the donation was his way of helping Republicans unseat Ohio’s Democratic governor, we can’t count on Fox News continuing to publicly disclose its funding for the GOP.

Help the Democratic Governors Association keep the pressure on Fox. Contribute $5 today!

Did you know that News Corp. donated another million bucks to a powerful lobbying group that’s already spent nearly $7 million for Republicans this cycle?

So what does this mean for us? We have to keep fighting. In fact, with less than a month until these critical elections, we must fight harder than ever.

Donate $5 today. Help give us the resources to keep the pressure on the Republicans and defend Democrats from the millions of dollars in special-interest attacks they’re facing in these final days.

And it’s not just cash that Fox and friends are throwing at these races.

For weeks, Glenn Beck has run his Fox show as a GOP Get-Out-The-Vote operation, using every fear tactic he can dream up to terrify the Far Right into action. He’s even claiming that progressives “buy in to socialism and Marxism and communism” and want to turn the U.S. “into a Third World country.”

This victory over Fox matters, but not if we can’t keep the fight alive all the way through Election Day… Not if we allow the Republicans to take over our statehouses and, ultimately, Congress itself… Not if we let the GOP steer America back in the wrong direction after so much progress.

Your $5 will keep us fighting the GOP and its allies at Fox News around the clock, so donate today!

With pride and determination,

Nathan Daschle
Executive Director
Democratic Governors Association

P.S. After we put the pressure on Fox News to own up to their alliance with the Republicans, they caved and finally broadcast the truth. But they donated another $1 million to one of the biggest Republican-funding groups this cycle. Meanwhile, they have Glenn Beck working his viewers into a fear-fueled voting surge… We need your help to win this battle against the Republicans and their Fox allies today!
