The Murdoch fundraiser for Hillary Clinton - under the radar

Reported by Chrish - July 18, 2006 -

David Swanson reports in OpEdNews.com that

"On Monday, July 17, 2006, at Fox News headquarters in New York City, Rupert Murdoch hosted a fundraiser breakfast for Hillary Clinton. Then he rushed off to a fundraiser lunch for John McCain, and Hillary rushed off to announce her unqualified support for Israel's and Bush's war policies.


Here's a one-sentence paragraph about Murdoch's Breakfast for Hillary as buried at the very end of a New York Times story on Tuesday: "At a separate event yesterday, Mrs. Clinton also won support from another onetime critic-turned-ally, Rupert Murdoch, the owner of The New York Post, who was the host of a political fund-raiser for her in New York City."

This will no doubt have implications for Clinton's further political ambitions, as some of her former supporters consider her to be sleeping with the enemy (figuratively speaking, of course).
