Fair and balanced: Fox PAC supports Democrats, too

The media company, which owns Fox News and whose CEO is Rupert Murdoch, just last month gave Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) $5,000 and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) $1,000 for their respective 2016 primaries, according to a monthly report filed Friday.

And so far this cycle, the Fox PAC has given more money to Senate Democratic candidates than Republican ones. Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) took in $8,000, Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) received $6,000, Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) got $6,000 too and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.Y.) accepted $5,000. All are up for reelection this year

PACs don't give money to those they support. They buy a chunk of those they expect to stay in power. As long as the Democrats control the Senate and show themselves amenable to providing access (as they call it) to those who pay for it, PACs will slap down money for the friendliest Democrats.
