Fox News' influence on the Democratic race

The network isn't just covering the election -- it's an issue within it.

This is my latest video for our partners at Current. In it, I discuss the continuing role Fox News is playing in the Democratic race, and not in the way you might think.

Sure, the network plays a role in covering the race, but it's also an important issue to some Democratic voters. There was the debate over Democratic debates on the network, of course, and there was also some furor over a fundraiser network owner Rupert Murdoch held on Hillary Clinton's behalf. Now, Murdoch's daughter Elisabeth is holding a fundraiser of her own, for Barack Obama. (Murdoch's New York Post endorsed Obama earlier this year.)
