AP reports “The Washington Post Co. will pay its 2013 dividends before the end of this year to try to spare investors from anticipated tax increases.”

Guess who benefits? The nation's leading billionaire advocate of tax hikes: "The Washington Post's dividend payment also stands to benefit those with a significant stake in the company, such as WARREN BUFFET's firm Berkshire Hathaway.

Liberal Newspaper that supports Democrats/Socialists/Obama and they want to beat higher taxes which they support - typical liberal crap.

A failing, Obama worshipping liberal rag works within the tax laws to reduce their tax payment. I don’t have a problem with that, except that Milbank, Dionne, Robinson, Capehart, and the rest of their journalists crucify Republicans for doing the same.The hypocrisy is so predictable.

Eisner’s Disney was one of the first to lump millions of dollars of dividends into 2012...and he headed El Bozo’s defunct Economic Committee.

It appears that the government will get less tax money next year than this year, so that’s not bad. But yes, it certainly exposes the hypocrisy of the Left once again.

Too bad these hypocrites don't consider a dictum of the Hippocratic Corpus (related to the Hippocratic Oath), "First, do no harm".

As long as were mentioning the Hippocratic Oath, the WaPo should observe some of its tenants as guidelines for their editors:

"I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody if asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. "

"Whatever houses I may visit, I will come for the benefit of the sick, remaining free of all intentional injustice, of all mischief and in particular of sexual relations with both female and male persons, be they free or slaves."

See how many papers they sell out of a box when they cost more than $3.00 ea.
Liberals never think about the long term effects of their actions.

Anyone who is surprised by this is a fool. While I have no love for the WaPo, this is just good business.

If you were the CEO, wouldn’t you do the same thing?

I suspect other companies will follow suit.

“Practice what we preach??”

Bah, that’s for suckers. “Do as we command you, not as we do.”

Leftists, progressives, socialists, communists, democrats...stinking scum, all of them.
