Media Matters ad on News Corp.'s $1 million GOP donation to air on Fox tonight
It's been a fight, but Fox News will at last air Media Matters' ad discussing the $1 million donation  made by Fox News' parent, News Corp., to the Republican Governors Association. The ad is scheduled to appear tonight during The O'Reilly Factor, which begins at 8 p.m. ET.
Politico has detailed  what Media Matters went through to gain approval for the ad; it took three tries before Fox News would accept it. The result, as The Washington Post's Greg Sargent points out , is that "Fox primetime viewers will finally learn that fair and balanced Fox News's parent company gave $1 million 'to oppose Democratic candidates for office this November.' "
We rarely tell people to watch Fox News, so check it out tonight as we bring the facts directly to a news organization that has been reluctant to report them.
UPDATE: Here's the ad:
