Israel USA – In a spirited public discussion between two of America’s richest men and largest political donors, at the IAC conference in Washington DC, multi-billionaire Sheldon Adelson openly challenged his more left-leaning counterpart and friend, billionaire and media mogul Haim Saban, to jointly purchase the New York Times away from the Sulzberger family, because of the Times’ open hostility towards Israel.

The subject came up in a pubic discussion about media bias and Israel. Saban marveled at how Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos had purchased the Washington Post for a mere $250 million, which Saban called “bupkis,” and that he was sorry that he did not try to buy it himself. At that point Adelson pounced on Saban and challenged him on the spot to join with him to buy the New York Times from the Sulzberger family.

    What an @$$ and a CIA tool. Instead of investing in pro-Israeli media the guy tries to resuscitate a dying nazi-CIA propaganda outlet with ZERO credibility under this too stupid to be “stupid” pretext. I don’t know what companies Sheldon Adelson is involved in but whatever they are I’ll be boycotting them, same as I boycott the NYT, CNN, BBC, Ha’aretz and the rest of that nazi-CIA propaganda complex.

    That would be incredible. While they are at it, the can acquire the Guardian, the Statesman and the ‘me too’ Haaretz and Yeditot.

    What do you think the price would be for the lot?

    Just one US dollar or you would have paid far too much.
