From a June 11 Politico article:
The former nine-term congressman also showed that ties to his old employer, Fox News Channel, can reap financial rewards in addition to promotional advantages.
Kasich's report shows two $10,000 contributions in late May from Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch and his wife.
Kasich hosted "Heartland With John Kasich" and frequently served as guest host on Fox's flagship talk show, "The O'Reilly Factor," between 2001 and 2007.
Since floating his candidacy for governor in February of 2008, Kasich has made more than two dozen appearances on Fox News.
