Soak the Rich: News Corp.

If there’s one thing more evil than a conservative, it’s a conservative media executive. That’s why true Progressives knew, long before Rupert Murdoch and his minions in England caused their current scandal, that News Corporation – parent of Fox News and The Wall Street Journal – was perhaps the vilest corporation on earth.

Well, other than Halliburton. And, duh, the oil companies. At any rate, America’s 2011 budget has $1.62 trillion hole, so News Corp. is more than evil enough to deserve Sherrod Brown’s solution of severe tax hikes for successful employers.

Now Soaking: News Corporation

Fear not: cranking up taxes on News Corp. won’t make cable TV, movies, or newspapers more expensive! Although a “free market” is nothing more than evil fat-cats cheating helpless saps out of money, Sheriff Sherrod’s patrolling these parts; supply, demand, risk, cost, and reward are shadows from the dark old days.

None of News Corp’s 51,000 employees will lose their jobs if Sherrod Brown and Barack Obama work their not-at-all-socialist magic. Last and least, the only funds & individuals holding any of News Corp’s 799,000,000 outstanding shares of stock who suffer will be the ones who deserve to (disclosure: I’m one of ’em, shamefully).

We, The People who support Sherrod Brown’s fiscal policies, hold these leftist conceits to be self-evident.
