Surprising! Rupert Murdoch, CEO of Fox News Corp. has teamed up with NYC Mayor Bloomberg and other executives from major corporations, including media companies such as Disney, to form a coalition advocating for immigration reform.
AP reports the Partnership for a New American Economy, as the coalition is called, includes a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants. The group is pitching immigration reform as a solution to repairing and stimulating the economy.
Murdoch went on the air today with Bloomberg to talk about the effort on Fox News. Does that mean the anchors and commentators on Fox will soften up on their immigration opinion and coverage?
