Open and transparent buying of elected officials! This is not even controversial! It is a gross and egregious violation of our election process. Faux Snooze buys the next Congress, Governor's races and POTUS in 2012.

Where is your shame, Republicans? Where is your spine? Do you really think the Ruling Class is going to get away with this crap?

I thought that strange Ohio Chamber of Commerce endorsement smelled really bad--and AEP agreed. Well, apparently Murdoch is the source of that particular odor. It appears the Ohio Chamber endorsement was purchased by Murdoch for Kasich as a little present for his lackey. No direct money connection is shown yet for the Ohio Chamber, but close enough. The wacky Plain Dealer stated that Kasich will not bring a "plague of locusts" to our state. This is pretty convincing evidence that a plague of locusts is part and parcel of any Kasich administration.

That's all we need is Fox Noise to buy our elections. Kasuck has his own TV show there now they want to buy the state fior him. Only way the loser could win is lie and buy the statehouse. Murdoch might want us to be a teabagger state so it'll be fun destroying him and the teabaggers.

This article has two authors yet somehow neither one of them thought it important enought to mention the little tidbit that Murdoch was a donor to Hillary Clinton. Such a right winger this Murdoch.

Because Unions represent working class AMERICANS! Murdock isn't even an AMERICAN, yet he's funneling money into Ohio politics and you don't have a problem with that? What kind of an American are you???

Yeahhhhhh for Murdock's help. Ya know, the average Democrat doesn't pay attention to the details and wouldn't have a clue who Geo. Soros is or what he has done for their Party. I believe the "Fox Family" loves John Kasich and rightly so.

So is Hillary the fake Democrat. She recently honored Henry Kissinger at the State Dept-a man with an International Arrest Warrant for war crimes. So what's your point?

The Fox "Family" of propaganda artists love John because he makes great angry soundbites. Kasich has been a lapdog for Murdoch's machine for years and years, he will say anything for a buck. If he gets elected governor, what do you think he will say for a million?

"It doesn't reflect on Fox News," says Murdoch. Could there be anything more absurd than this statement? Someday history books will record how a non-American billionaire established a "fair and balanced" organization that millions of U.S. citizens would actually believe was a legitimate news source, when in fact it was an aggressive arm of a cynical
political cabal. Thanks to a "conservative" Supreme Court, money has become speech and fat cats rule. " One dollar, one vote" -- what could be fairer?
