News media are big donors to Hillary’s corrupt Clinton Foundation

More than a dozen media organizations, including CBS, NBC, PBS, Reuters, Turner Broadcasting, Washington Post, and the supposedly conservative Fox, Richard Mellon Scaife, and NewsMax — the very news media who cover Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign — are big donors to her Clinton Foundation that is accused of trading State Department favors to foreign governments in return for their lucrative “donations.”

(See “Hillary and Bill Clinton got millions in bribes from foreign ‘entities’ in exchange for State Dept favors“)

How is this not a conflict of interest?

Dylan Byers writes for Politico, May 15, 2015, that more than a dozen media organizations have made charitable contributions to the non-profit tax-exempt 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, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, is under scrutiny for his previously undisclosed $75,000 contribution to the Foundation.

  1. Truly is disgusting. There no longer is any truthful reporting in much of the news media, it’s all just lies in varying degrees. I’m glad that I’ve chosen to not watch television news any longer. I break that trend only under rare circumstances such as something major going on in the world.

  2. I was dumbfounded to read that “PBS” Public Broadcasting Service had made donation(s) to the Clinton Foundation. Is this the very same PBS that we the taxpayers have to keep propping up with infusions of public funds. If they have the money to make charitable donations–I would say, they don’t need my taxpayer dollar! Yet, they scream like stuck pigs when mention is made of cutting off the stream of public dollars; they holler that we (the taxpayers just don’t “care about the children,” we want to “deprive the children” of worthwhile, learning experiences produced and brought to them by PBS. Somehow, I feel like a whole load of “BS” has been dumped on my head. If they can afford to donate–they can afford to produce their “leftist crap” on today’s on unsuspecting children (and adults.) I am so mad about this I could go on, and on, and on–but I will shut up for now! Other than to say “we the taxpayers have been snookered by PBS.”

      Not that I’m defending PBS, but it was Judy Woodruff, the turkey-neck ultra-liberal co-anchor of the PBS News Hour, who donated $ to the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti earthquake relief, of which very little actually got to Haiti.

      I’m more appalled by supposedly-conservative NewsMax.com and gazillionaire Richard Melon Scaife being Clinton Foundation donors.

      PBS has long been a mouthpiece for the white self hating lefturds. They have long clamed their “programming” is neutral and totally non biased politically, which is NOT true

    • PBS has strong connects to the Right/GOP/Koch with them making increased decisions about what is reported and how it is reported. I noted to self how they would give less time to Bernie over Hilary even at the beginning along with ‘shade’ on what they did and continue to report about him. Their choice of words and how they have defined him over Hilary. Even this last week when they accused Bernie of (paraphrasing) ‘underhanded/breaking the rules’ tactics towards Hilary especially when it comes to the Convention …. when Bernie repeatedly noted he was just going by the DNC rules and guides lines she rather brushed him off and he had to repeated his answer to her without seeming to acknowledge his answer (more like lip service with no substance). While this is no different than the rest of the media I’d expected a much fairer and more balanced discourse from PBS. PBS has and seems to continue down that slippery slope. Also thank you for the tip on their donating. From now on I will keep my money in my pocket.

  6. How can America get better when the STUPID American votes Vermin like the Democratic Socialist Liberal Party back in office again and again, You all are beating a dead horse and Reid and his worthless pals know that. Time to rock the boat, so when the storm gets here they will ALL be swept overboard! Show me one thing that these BASTARDS have done for the American people? NOT ONE DAMN THING but stab us in the back and raise our taxes. But they will take care of all the INVADING CRIMINALS, so WE will have to work harder! The open border is killing America and they know it and DON’T CARE! If you do, then get busy and get rid of these TRAITORS, before they do us in! Semper Fi.

  7. Excellent information on the highway of a cesspool. I find this throughly disgusting. If all these ties were to a Republican, you would hear screaming 50 miles away.
    This seems to not only a conflict of interest but highly unethical. How can the public expect to hear any unbiased reporting.
    I expect it will only get worse.
