Washington DC - (Ass Mess): There were red faces among the Dems today as the news was announced that Hillary Clinton's blind trust portfolio has held between $100,000 and $250,000 in NewsCorp stock, the parent company of Faux News which has acquired a dire reputation of bias against the Democratic Party.
Other stock held in the trust has included Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart de Mexico. Clinton once served on the Wal-Mart board from 1986 to 1992 but had to Return a $5,000 campaign donation last year to Wal-Mart's political action committee after whiffs of concern "about serious differences with current company practices."
The blind trust was liquidated earlier in April this year and has valued Hillary and husband Bill's wealth at between $10 and $50 million - 'pretty much the same as George and Laura Bush'.
Analysts have said Bill Clinton has been earning around $10 million per annum from giving speeches, the highest recorded rate so far for any former US President.
"Bet he doesn't say much about how his party loathes Rupert Murdoch and his Faux News disinformation service though, hehe," a leading DC media watcher said today.
