Nobody can honestly dispute that Fox News does not have a staff largely composed of Republicans, but many people may not know the levels of party affiliations. This goes beyond trying to pass off a GOP press release as their own research (including the typo).
Fair.org (Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting) has an older article that mentions some of the people listed below. What I would like to point out, before getting to the list is the following paragraph:
The abundance of conservatives and Republicans at Fox News Channel does not seem to be a coincidence. In 1996, Andrew Kirtzman, a respected New York City cable news reporter, was interviewed for a job with Fox and says that management wanted to know what his political affiliation was. “They were afraid I was a Democrat,” he told the Village Voice (10/15/96). When Kirtzman refused to tell Fox his party ID, “all employment discussion ended,” according to the Voice.
