Rupert Murdoch Officially Launches the Murdoch-Clinton Party

Reported by Melanie - May 10, 2006

Rupert Murdoch was a guest today (May 10, 2006) on Your World w/Neil Cavuto. He talked about yesterday's interest rate hike: "I don't think there's any reason for more rate hikes at all. Inflation's pretty well under control. You can't do anything about the price of oil." He talked about News Corp.'s bottom line: "We just announced the fourth straight year of double-digit growth." He talked about the economy: The economy is "in terrific shape," it's "booming." And he talked about Hillary Clinton.


I'd be remiss, while you're still here, if I didn't bring up Hillary Clinton. Everyone's talking about the fundraiser you're doing for her. What's going on with that?

Murdoch chuckled and said,

It's going to be a very small fundraiser. People in this building. Maybe you'll come?

I think she has been a good senator. She, ah, you know, we don't agree on a lot of things, of course, but um, she's going to get re-elected. Here, there's no opposition. There's no Republican party in New York state any longer, it would seem. And, ah, I think she's doing very well for us, and I'm talking parochially for New York state.


How about as president. Would she make a good president?


Well, that's a different question. I don't even know that she's going to run.

With that, both Murdoch and Cavuto laughed and the segment ended.

Comment: Think about it. One of the evilist, richest, most powerful, most anti-democratic men on the planet says that the 2008 "Democratic frontrunner," Hillary Clinton, has been a "good senator," she's "doing very well for us," and he's holding a fundraiser for her.
