Chris Wallace also donated to the Clintons

Fox News’ Chris Wallace casted doubt on the fact that many journalists have donated to the Clinton Foundation, asking to see a list for proof while ignoring the fact that the co-chief operating officer of the parent company of his own network donated money to the Clinton Foundation.

After ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos disclosed charitable donations to the Clinton Foundation “in support of the work they’re doing on global AIDS prevention and deforestation,” media falsely equated donations to the Foundation with contributions to a Democratic political campaign, ignoring the fact that the Foundation’s work is expressly nonpartisan, and has been supported by numerous Republicans and conservative media figures.

On the May 17 edition of Fox Broadcasting Co.’s Fox News Sunday, host Wallace expressed skepticism that “lots of journalists gave money” to the Clinton Foundation after Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers asserted the Clinton campaign “is making a point of” noting donations made by journalists, adding that he’d “like [to see] that list.”

But Wallace’s own network is one of several conservative media outlets that have donated to the Clinton Foundation. The News Corporation Foundation, which is headed by Rupert Murdoch and was formerly the parent company of Fox News donated between $500,001 to $1,000,000 to the foundation, and James R. Murdoch, the co-chief operating officer of Fox News’ parent company 21st Century Fox and son of Rupert Murdoch, donated between $1,000,001 to $5,000,000.
