  •  The Cox family's politics are mixed. (0+ / 0-)

    Incredibly, this is a privately held company.

    Anne Cox Chambers owns a huge fraction of the company which is essentially privately owned by the Cox family.  She is worth well over $10 billion.  She is a HUGE Obama and Democratic Party supporter.  Earlier this year she donated $100 k to the PAC to restore a Dem majority in the House, and $500 k to  Priorities USA, a progressive group.

    James Cox Kennedy is the chair of Cox Enterprises, another billionaire, but of more modest means.  He is a big GOP donor: Romney, Eric Cantor, Herman Cain.  He even has the dough to throw away a $4,174 contribution to the Vermont Repub Federal Elections Cmte.  He is much more likely to dictate the editorial content of the news website.

    The Cox Media Group's  flagship paper, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, endorsed Obama in 2008 (they no longer make endorsements).
