He MIGHT have been referring to, and rather gigantically misconstruing, this item:

@ miguel cervantes:
I'd like to see evidence/a link on that, and specifics such as dates and type of contribution. Also, as far as the direct $$$$ go, it's a whole new world, to quote Princess Jasmine, especially in the post-Citizens United universe.

You also have people like Rove and especially Morris who, when I was watching FNC, were constantly directly pitching their own PACs or similar orgs. All of the rest of their infotainers - Palin, Huckabee, Hannity, the former Beck all had their own spins on the set-up: The whole network IS a massive in-kind contribution to the Republican Party.
