Fox hates that DiCaprio is using his money to try and Save the environment, but is completely fine with the Koch brothers using their money to Destroy the environment.

We know Hypocrisy is a bedrock conservative principle, but I'm shocked they never look in the mirror and realize they always are siding with the bad guys.

They accepted their side the moment that they chose it. They get paid pretty well to have situational ethics--to wit, whatever side they are on MUST be the ethical side. They know better, but it keeps their pillowcases stuffed with cash, so they're good with it.

What kills you, is that Tucker Carlson doesn't need the cash, he's just doing it so that he hang out with people who will kiss his ass a bit to get back for all the meanies who made him carry the keg back in college.

Yes the Left has become dominant on the dark money front since the last presidential election.

"Though Democrats have railed against "dark money" in politics, they actually upstaged Republicans with such funds  in the 2020 election, a New York Timesanalysis found."

So Fox is concerned about these "nuisance lawsuits" without explaining why they are a nuisance. Usually that term is used as a substitute for "frivolous", but they have zero commentary on the merits of the case.

I'm going to guess that the lawsuits had merit, this was merely a way to fund those with standing to file suit, given the economic hurdles many people face when going up against a large firm with deep pockets.

No fair! You're supposed to use dark money to fund climate denial groups and other propaganda firms that make sure poor people remain poor and exploited, you're not supposed to use money for good!

You can practically hear the triple parentheses when one of them says "SOROS".

Looks like more things you guys shouldn't have done.
Everything you righties do, you end up being sorry - like when you killed the fairness doctrine so Rush could take over radio, and refused to let the internet become a common carrier - "Free Markets", you said.
Now, you whine about "cancel culture".
And, of course, you are going to get Roe v Wade jammed up your ass full force.
You team is losing, sport - because you keep doing stupid stuff.
Maybe if you dumb f**ks quit doing things, the things you do would stop coming back to bite you in the ass.

No, he wants to somehow warp reality so only white people who are right about things can use it.
That is actually what goes on in these toddler minds.
