Clinton, Menendez Donors Get Hollywood Reporter’s Philanthropists Award

There is nothing more ironic than liberals celebrating liberal billionaires. In this case, The Hollywood Reporter has named Univision owners and liberal mega-donors Haim and Cheryl Saban as their Philanthropists of the Year.

According to The Hollywood Reporter’s special feature in Billboard’s recent June 29 issue, “On July 10, Cheryl and Haim Saban will be honored as THR’smost generous power couple, their philanthropy priorities enrich Los Angeles’ cultural and civic vitality, promote healthcare access and research, strengthen the US-Israel relationship, and empower women and girls.” How poetic. Did they also forget that Los Angeles is currently a cultural and civic cesspool precisely because of the liberal policies the Sabans support?
