Report: Rupert Murdoch’s Son, Company, NY Times, PBS Anchor All Gave Money to Clinton Foundation

Share reports that all the wealthy media barons have given money to the Clinton Foundation including James Murdoch, New Corp, the New York Times, the Washington Post, conservative group Newsmax, Reuters news service, Google, publisher Harcourt-Houghton Mifflin (which doesn’t have a pot to piss in), Time Warner, a Disney relative, NBC and its parent Comcast, Hearst Corporation, AOL Huffington Post. The only media outlet missing is Highlights for Children. And not to be outdone, they got money from the Golden Globes so Bill would come on the show and present “Lincoln” in 2013– on NBC, which also gave him dough. Even the owner of Politico gave money. Everyone had a reason.
