This should be a story in The Onion

Unfortunately, it’s a story in The Intercept. Jon Schwarz (h/t to NashVegasDawg)

 

Many news outlets covered Univision Communications’ purchase last week of a stake in The Onion, the world’s leading news publication. According to NPR, Univision bought a 40 percent controlling interest in the company, and also acquired the option to buy the remainder of The Onion in the future.

But what’s gotten no attention at all is that Haim Saban, Hillary Clinton’s biggest fan and financial supporter, is Univision’s co-owner, chairman, and CEO. Saban and his wife, Cheryl, are Hillary Clinton’s top financial backers, having given $2,046,600 to support her political campaigns and at least $10 million more to the Clinton Foundation, on whose board Cheryl Saban sits. The Sabans are also generous supporters of the overall Democratic Party infrastructure, donating, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a total of $16.1 million since 1989 to Democratic and liberal candidates, party committees, leadership PACs, and federally focused 527s.

Saban is a rabid supporter of Israel and a business partner of the Murdochs.

Wisconsin GOP: Cribbing From Monty Python?

Posted by Phoenix Woman on March 3, 2011

The increasingly desperate behavior of Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and his fellow Koch Republicans in the state legislature took yet another turn towards Onionville today:

The Republicans in Wisconsin are floating a bunch of nonsense about chipped marble. The building is so much more spotless that anyone could ever hope to expect after two weeks of occupation. The protesters have recycling and cleanup teams. This is bullshit. But not as much as the ammo at the entrance rumor! Meanwhile their lockdown of the Capitol kept out firefighters during an emergency call.

The whole “oh oh look we’ve found bullets” bullshit is oddly familiar.

For a visual demonstration, see the video above.
