The Clintons Are Kissing Up To Murdoch

Hope you got something near your computer to hurl into:

Rupert Murdoch, the conservative media mogul whose New York Post tabloid savaged Hillary Clinton's initial aspirations to become a US senator for New York, has agreed to host a political fundraiser for her re-election campaign.

The decision reflects an assiduous courtship by Mrs Clinton and former President Bill Clinton. Last month Mrs. Clinton surprised Washington by attending the "Fox News Sunday" 10th anniversary party, where she chatted with Mr. Murdoch.

Mr. Clinton has encouraged Mr Murdoch's involvement with his Global Initiative and has invited him to speak again at the second forum in September. The former president will also address News Corp's summer conference.

This should blast apart any remaining notions that the American people actually get to pick the candidates ...
