Strange Bedfellows

by Steve

Don't be too surprised by this, but Rupert Murdoch will be hosting a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton's reelection campaign this July. Anyone who has been following the strange thaw between Murdoch and the Clintons for about a year now should not be aghast at this development. Officially, Murdoch says he is doing this fundraiser to show his appreciation for Hillary's work in representing New York during her first term. Unofficially, as the smart businessman that he is, Murdoch is simply covering his bets in 2008, and has allegedly told the New York Post to tone it down a little in its coverage of Hillary over the last year.
