"With the news that George Soros is buying one hundred political 'reporters' for National Public Radio (NPR), one waits with bated breath for the left to decry the fact that a famous anti-American leftist is buying and influencing the 'news,'" writes Warner Todd Huston at Big Journalism.
"The event is an "illegal coordinate campaign expenditure," assert Connecticut Democrats in a shocked, shocked letter to the FEC calling for immediate investigation of World Wresting Entertainment's "involvement with Linda McMahon's Senate campaign. We're talking here about an electoral battle of the titans to restore the heretofore hereditary "Dodd Seat" to the people of the Nutmeg State as Republican McMahon and Democrat Richard Blumenthal get down and dirty in the final throes. You may recall that the scandal-plagued Senator Dodd announced last January he would not run for reelection when word got out about Countrywide Financial's giving him two sweetheart deals on mortgages." Back to the CT Dems' outraged letter to the FEC:
They say the wrestling promoter scheduled two major events in the state to affect voter turnout – a large-scale “Fan Appreciation Day” three days before Election Day in Hartford, and a taping of “Smackdown” in Democratic-heavy Bridgeport on the day voters head to the polls
As Michelle Malkin might say, big, "boo freakin' hoo." Same old same old. What's good for the goose and all that. How 'bout Oprah's and Arianna's and Jon's and Stephen's and Barack's forthcoming lovefest on and off the Mall? Everyone, on both sides of the aisle, is disintermediating the gateway media this election season. Transparency's the thing. Even George "Avalanche" Soros has gotten with the program, coming out of the closet with a million dollars for Media Matters to try to topple the people's choice at Fox News (good luck, losers!) and millions more to buy "political reporters" for NPR. Down with Soros-seeded McCain-Feingold, up with the Supreme Court's Citizens United, and may the best women and men win!
