Pro-abortion researchers trying to convince the FDA to remove abortion pill restrictions had financial support from billionaire investor Warren Buffett, according to a new Live Action News investigation. Live Action released a report Aug. 11, showing that Berkshire Hathaway CEO Buffett funded the study through his foundation and that, much earlier, he was one of several investors in the company that developed the abortion pill mifepristone.
Despite widespread praise when first purchasing his newspaper empire, liberal billionaire Warren Buffett’s company Berkshire Hathaway is slashing media jobs by 6 percent — after cutting hundreds of jobs last year, according to Bloomberg.
Charles Pierce, the resident radical-left political pundit at Esquire magazine – that intellectual powerhouse best known for its “Sexiest Woman Alive” award – is lamenting the role of Steve Bannon in electing President Trump, as well as Trump financial backers “Robert and Rebekah Mercer, the reactionary New York gozillionnaires.” But when the Forbes list of billionaires is topped by a pile of liberals, why aren't they ever a malignant force in politics? They're on "the right side of history," even when Republicans win.
When Warren Buffett released his tax information on Monday, the media went wild. But they refused to report that nearly $2 billion of his “charitable contributions” funded abortion.
According to Buffett’s Oct. 10 statement, he made nearly $2.86 billion in donations during 2015, “of which more than $2.85 billion were not taken as deductions and never will be.”
When Warren Buffett promised to make his tax returns public if Donald Trump did the same, the media loved it. But they refused to cover one key thing Buffett’s tax returns would reveal about the Midwest billionaire -- his support for abortion.
Lefty billionaires Warren Buffett and George Soros, who have used their fortunes to influence the media, could learn from the example of the late media mogul Roy H. Park Sr.
In the 2015 revised edition of Sons in the Shadow, Roy H. Park Jr. described how his father founded Park Communications and built his nearly $1-billion fortune. His company owned “seven TV stations, 21 radio stations and 144 newspaper publications in 24 states” when he passed away in 1993, but the younger Park says his father steered clear of allowing his political opinions to influence the content these outlets produced.
In his rush to flame-broil Burger King as an unpatriotic fast-food joint looking to skip out on paying its taxes to Uncle Sam, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews sought to enlist the famously pro-free market, pro-capitalism Wall Street Journal. The only problem is his claim is 100 percent Grade A baloney.
"The Wall Street Journal lead editorial today came out against it.... The lead editorial today, surprisingly, attacked this tax scheme," Matthews insisted to guest David Corn of the leftist Mother Jones magazine. In point of fact, the Journal editorial board slammed not corporate "inversion" schemes but the current U.S. tax code, which it called "the reigning world champion in punishing investment and discouraging job creation."

Ever since fast food chain Burger King announced its desire to purchase Canadian coffee and doughnut chain Tim Hortons, CBS has done its best to play up the supposed backlash the company will face as it moves its headquarters overseas to lower its tax burden.
On Wednesday morning, following the news that billionaire investor Warren Buffett is helping finance the merger, CBS This Morning made sure to hit Buffett from the left with fill-in anchor Anthony Mason going so far as to proclaim that “somebody once said Warren Buffett is a capitalist before he’s a patriot.” [See video below.]
On Thursday night’s episode of his PBS show, Charlie Rose began by showering guest and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with praises from the likes of Henry Kissinger, the late Maya Angelous and, naturally, Charlie Rose himself! From reading a glowing quote from Henry Kissinger to reading a Maya Angelou poem all about her to Rose announcing “I consider Hillary Clinton a friend,” it was a slobbering start to a softball interview.
After summarizing the premise of her book about her time as Secretary of State, Rose gushed that “few people have spent the past 20 years as she has” with all the positions of power she’s held. It was then that read the following quote from former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger: “[W]hen I call Mrs. Clinton Hillary, I do that not so much to indicate familiarity, but to use a name that the whole world uses. It shows to what extend she has succeeded in her people-to-people work.” [MP3 audio here; Video below]
The press loves billionaire Warren Buffett, who can be relied to support President Barack Obama even in implausible circumstances — such as the current economy, where the "recovery" following the 2008-2009 traditionally defined recession has been worse than any since World War II, and barely better than what was seen during the awful post-Depression 1930s.
Thus far, the press has managed to ignore one of the implications of the first quarter's serious contraction. One more quarter of economic contraction could mean that the end of the recession, as Buffett himself has defined it, failed to permanently arrive.
Talk radio host Mark Levin discussed CMI's report on Warren Buffett's funding of the abortion industry.
Levin noted that "this guy is held up as this great public figure, even though he's a private, corporate titan. Tens of billions of dollars. $1.2 billion dollars, one man? And he's this great guy, he knows all about the economy -- he doesn't know anything. He's just another stupid billionaire."
