Strange but true:
Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. was an official sponsor of the National Action Network’s annual convention here in Washington, D.C., from April 11 through 14. NAN is the radical Alinskyite pressure group headed by race hustler Al Sharpton.
A full-page ad from News Corp. appears in the glossy, expensive-looking program NAN handed out at the confab, as noted by Dana Milbank. News Corp. owns Fox News, Harper Collins, the New York Post, and the Wall Street Journal.
Sharpton appreciates the irony. “They bash me on Fox News,” he said. “But they sponsor my conference.”
