2. This is a logical progression

With Fox Noise, Murdoch has, in effect, made a yearly billion dollar contribution to the Republican Party (move over, Sheldon Adelson), and even makes a profit in the process. Many of its commentators are openly Republican operatives (and the rest are nearly out int the open). It's only natural that Murdoch's print media should act in the same manner. Journalism has nothing to do with this. It is a case of deliberately deceptive advertising. Fox is not news, and the WSJ is less and less of a newspaper.

Even the wily Lenin practiced less deceptive advertising. In the Soviet era, "Pravda" proclaimed itself an "Organ of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union" right there on the front page of every issue. Murdoch's American media, especially Fox and the WSJ, are organs of the Republican Party, but claim an independence they don't even try to feign.
