Fox News's Jesse Watters trashed Obama voters, donated $500 to Obama

One week after the 2012 election, Fox News correspondent Jesse Watters told Bill O'Reilly that Obama voters were "zombies" who supported the president "as long as there was Obamacare, gay marriage and abortion on demand."

Per the FEC filing above, Watters, who resides in Long Island, N.Y., contributed $500 to Obama Victory Fund 2012 in late September. You'll note "News Corp.," which owns Fox News, is listed under "name of employer."

POLITICO reached out to Fox News PR to request an interview with Watters and to ask the network for comment. They did not respond.

2. It makes sense, if you think about it.

Obama is Fox's bread and butter. It's surprising that more Fox employees don't support him.

3. Well..you know

Those FOX people aren't very smart. Perhaps he didn't really understand what "Obama Victory Fund" meant.

I'm sure to some people with no scrupples, eh...it's a job. I would also imagine quite a few FOX employees actually supported Obama. It would be interesting to know the true number wouldn't it!

6. I think of fox news like an entertainment tv show

like Entertainment Tonight. They are all actors doing what they do to get a paycheck. It's a well orchestrated sitcom. Like actors, you don't know what the real person stands for.
