News Media Are Big Donors to Hillary’s Corrupt Clinton Foundation

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

More than a dozen media organizations, including NBC, Fox, Turner Broadcasting, Reuters, and the conservative NewsMax — the very news media who cover Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign — are big donors to her Clinton Foundation that is accused of trading State Department favors to foreign governments in return for their lucrative “donations.”

(See “Hillary and Bill Clinton got millions in bribes from foreign ‘entities’ in exchange for State Dept favors“)

How is this not a conflict of interest?

Dylan Byers writes for Politico, May 15, 2015, that more than a dozen media organizations that have made charitable contributions to the non-profit tax-exempt Clinton Foundation in recent years, the foundation’s records show.

The donations, which range from the low-thousands to the millions, provide a picture of the media industry’s ties to the Clinton Foundation at a time when one of its most notable personalities, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, is under scrutiny for his previously undisclosed $75,000 contribution to the Foundation.
