This one should come as no surprise.
As you can see from the map below, the organization identified four instances of FOX News pundits and the like campaigning here in Colorado Springs.
In October, Monica Crowley was present for an Americans for Prosperity rally in the parking lot of KVOR.
Last June, Karl Rove was the keynote speaker at the local GOP Lincoln Day Dinner. There were protests for that one.
And finally, in June of this year, Michelle Malkin spoke at the Cheyenne Mountain Republican Forum's infamous fund-raiser.
If you haven't died from shock, it is worth pointing out that the Democrats have tried to lure "news" personalties themselves. Remember the debacle surrounding Peak Dems' attempt to bring the shouting mouth of MSNBC's Ed Schultz to town?
Schultz was all ready to go — until someone at his network informed him, as he said at the time, that "this is a fund raiser and it violates NBC News Standards and Practices policy manual. I'm allowed to speak at conventions pre-approved by MSNBC but not political fund raisers. I [am] deeply sorry as this is my mistake."
News standards and practices — who would've guessed?
