Is FNC Pulling for Obama?

I read recently that the Fox News Channel has indeed been voted the most "fair and balanced" news station during this election cycle... After reading this article, I have to wonder if this is the reason:

"News Corp Chief Executive Rupert Murdoch on Wednesday predicted a Democratic landslide in the U.S. presidential election against a gloomy economic backdrop over the next 18 months.

Murdoch has yet to endorse a U.S. presidential candidate but considers Barack Obama very promising, the media magnate said in an interview..."You have got the Obama phenomenon. You have got, undoubtedly, a recession ... The average American is really getting hurt financially and that all bodes well for him (Obama), Murdoch said.

"You have probably the making of a complete phenomenon in this country," Murdoch said in describing what he predicted will be a sweeping victory for Democrats in November." (source)

Being 100% serious, I can't quite get my head around the fact that people would actually send this abecedarian to the White House --even before we learned all the things that we have...
