Surprise, Surprise. The media heavily donated to the Clinton Foundation.


It is one thing to know that the media is “in the pocket” of the Clintons. However, it is far worse to learn that the media “fills the pockets” of the Clintons. In the exposé below we learn that many of the most influential media outlets donated hard, cold cash to the Clinton Foundation. I’m sure she just said “thank you” and did nothing else.

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 not disclosing his own $75,000 contribution when reporting on the foundation.

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.

  1. “Surprise, Surprise” is hardly an eye-catching phrase anymore when it comes to corruption and dishonesty in the news (and now of it). The quantity of it surrounds us daily to the point of familiarity. It isn’t unusual anymore. Stories of honesty today are as infrequent as corruption reporting was fifty years ago. Has our society become inured to it by the sheer quantity and frequency of it all? However, I, for one, am still disgusted by it.

    Is it any wonder journalism is dead, that TV and film fare is gauged to the idiot or the lowest common denominator? Look at all the culprits. They want Hillary to be their “leader” and to tell them what to do, to “show the way” to a socialist/collectivist “paradise” and individual enterprises will be crushed by Hillary’s boots, as she wants to do to Breitbart as punishment to exposing her as the felonious fraud she is.

    With this, the gloves come off! The media has shown its prejudice for decades, long ago forgoing the honest and unbiased reporting of news but this info underscores the depth of their deception. The unintended consequences of their folly will be the loss of even their first amendment freedoms. All it takes is a national disaster and a charismatic or strongman neocommunist who will curtail any publication which doesn’t report what it is told. Look back 100 years ago.
    Pravda en embryo!
