In polite liberal circles, just about the closest one can get to defining, well, the antichrist, is Pittsburgh newspaper publisher, financial-empire-scion and right-wing propagandist Richard Mellon Scaife, who has spent decades and untold millions financing various right wing propaganda, and in the process, undermining any semblance of responsible, sane government. Indeed, Scaife famously funded much of the movement that led to the impeachment of Bill Clinton.
Naturally, less than 48 hours before his own state’s potentially make or break Democratic primary… he and his paper (the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review) are endorsing Hillary Clinton. I mean, we already have her posing with Rupert Murdoch… and she’d been courting Scaife for a while… so why not this?
Strange bedfellows doesn’t begin to cover this.
