A Vast Left Wing Conspiracy

NBC Universal, News Corporation, Turner Broadcasting and Thomson Reuters are among more than a dozen media organizations that have made charitable contributions to the Clinton Foundation in recent years, the foundation’s records show.

The donations, which range from the low-thousands to the millions, provide a picture of the media industry’s ties to the Clinton Foundation at a time when one of its most notable personalities, George Stephanopoulos, is under scrutiny for his previously undisclosed $75,000 contribution.

The list also includes mass media groups like Comcast, Time Warner and Viacom, as well a few notable individuals, including Carlos Slim, the Mexican telecom magnate and largest shareholder of The New York Times Company, and James Murdoch, the chief operating officer of 21st Century Fox. Both Slim and Murdoch have given between $1 million to $5 million, respectively.

Judy Woodruff, the co-anchor and managing editor of PBS NewsHour, gave $250 to the foundation’s “Clinton Haiti Relief Fund” in 2010.

    You idiots know the Clinton Foundation is a charity, right! A number of well known GOP members have also donated to this CHARITY, so f###ing what!

    Golly darn, guess who they are rooting for? (IF Herr Hussein decides not to run again?)

    • David in MA

      Herr Hussein Constitutionally cannot run again this is why he will declare martial law before Jan 2016 and become the dick~tator of the Islamic Marxist States of Amerika.

  • David in MA

    At any given moment Obama can (and will) shut down America.
    He has subtly placed his people in every possible position to do so, think not?
    Then stop and think of all the “institutions” Obama’s dictatorship has taken over, food, transportation, energy, communications, health, ad infinitum.
    Right now, all Obama has to do is go on national T.V., radio, newspaper & internet and announce he is suspending (what is left of) the Constitution and declaring Martial Law and America shuts down via the actions of Obama’s Islamic Marxist organization. All this has been set in place right in the face of all of America and Congress and the people have allowed it to happen, GOD SAVE AMERICA!

      You’ve been watching too many Bruce Willis movies. Give it a rest. Enough with your conspiracy theories.

      • David in MA

        connect the Obama “dots” and see the full picture.
        then wake the F up!

        • I Seigel

          You’ve been connecting the “dots” now for what, at least 2 years or so? What picture has emerged? Have they taken your guns? Are interest rates soaring? Has Obamacare been a job killer? Any “death panels” in sight?

          Stock market is still very strong. More jobs were created last year – the first full year of Obamacare – than in 2009, before Obamacare. Interest rates are still extremely low. My health insurance premiums increased by $13 a month this year, instead of the $80-100 of recent years. No one has come for your guns. And the countries of Europe who suffered under Germany’s demands of austerity – the same type of policies that EVERY Republican politician has pushed – have now started to turn to stimulus to generate jobs and revenue.

          You’re stuck in a dead end ideology that has been PROVEN not to work. Connect those dots and wake the F up.

          • David in MA

            You have been and continue to be deceived, comrade liberal.

          • I Seigel

            Yes, deceived and liberal – with my low interest mortgage, job, self-paid healthcare and gun. Low stress and happy. I’m sure things in your world are so much better, being conservative and undeceived.

          • David in MA

            Lets see if I get you right.
            Your mortgage is a VA guaranteed mortgage and your self paid healthcare is either VA or comes from your job you learned while in the military and the gun, well, everyone must have a gun, no argument on that…
            How close am I?

          • I Seigel

            I don’t understand what any of your guesses have to do with the state of the economy and the state of guns in this country, as I listed them. What’s your point?
