Skip to comments.NY Times Bombshell Scoop: Fox News Colluded with Rubio to Give Amnesty to Illegal Aliens
Posted on 02/27/2016 10:16:35 PM PST by MichelleWSC3
A few weeks after Senator Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% joined a bipartisan push for an immigration overhaul in 2013, he arrived alongside Senator Chuck Schumer at the executive dining room of News Corporations Manhattan headquarters for dinner.
Their mission was to persuade Rupert Murdoch, the owner of the media empire, and Roger Ailes, the chairman and chief executive of its Fox News division, to keep the networks on-air personalities from savaging the legislation and give it a fighting chance at survival.
Mr. Murdoch, an advocate of immigration reform, and Mr. Ailes, his top lieutenant and the most powerful man in conservative television, agreed at the Jan. 17, 2013, meeting to give the senators some breathing room.
But the media executives, highly attuned to the intensifying anger in the Republican grass roots, warned that the senators also needed to make their case to Rush Limbaugh, the king of conservative talk radio, who held enormous sway with the partys largely anti-immigrant base.
The dinner at News Corporation headquarters which has not been previously reported and the subsequent outreach to Mr. Limbaugh illustrate the degree to which Mr. Rubio served as the chief envoy to the conservative media for the group supporting the legislation. The bill would have provided a pathway to American citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants along with measures to secure the borders and ensure that foreigners left the United States upon the expiration of their visas.

Bye bye, Marco.
And they became buddies for ever after...
It also explains Rush’s love-affair with Rubio too
Explains a lot, doesn’t it? Like Rush’s Rube love and fence sitting.
Is anyone really surprised? No. Disgusted? Yes.
Flush FOX news.
It has become a harlot like the rest......
FOX News is team Rubio’s media wing. It is 24/7 pro-Rubio and anti-others, especially Cruz.
Read some tweets Marco you traitor
I’m not going to throw Rush under the bus on this, but I think this story paints a picture of a man very eager to play the role of the big shot...
Rubio, or I should say his handlers, have been playing everyone like damn fiddles for too long. It’s time people wise up and realize what we’re dealing with here: A snake.
About 75% less Monday after you already lost 50% of GOP Voters
Cruz and Trump may have their differences but the same people hate them.
Cruz started getting cozy with Marco lately... He needs to realize that once Trump’s out that knife is aiming for his back next.
Your Monday Show will be intersting no wonder you didn't have a Rubio Gang of Eight problem
I believe Trump will attack Rupert Murdoch at the next FOX debate.
Can’t wait to see the moderators go into shock.
Thanks for pinging others and bringing it the attention it deserves. The NYT source article adds a lot of details despite the leftist spin.
And Marco waves as he goes off into the sunset, to his foam pools.
Fox changed a long, long time ago.
