LA Times Sold To Billionaire Doctor And Fake-News Protester
Hot Air ^ | 02/07/18

Posted on 02/07/2018 9:30:43 AM PST by Liberty7732

Is it time to Make Los Angeles Great Again? After almost two decades of corporate ownership, the Los Angeles Times will revert back to private control — under an owner with professed skepticism about journalism. Billionaire doctor and investor Patrick Soon-Shiong will cough up nearly $600 million to take full control of the paper, a figure that dwarfs what Jeff Bezos paid for the Washington Post a few years back:

Almost any change for the stunningly bad LAT has gotta be good. And maybe he will release the LAT’s hidden recording of obama celebrating his anti- American / anti- Jewish crap with his islamonazi bff’s too

He is actually a brilliant man, at least his accomplishments would make one believe that to be the case.

I remember the "New Republic" which Lyndon LaRouche published.

Who’s the billionaire doctor palling around with Donald Trump?

What follows is what I found from various news articles including the one I linked above.

Politically, the two would seem to have little in common. Soon-Shiong’s political contributions have skewed heavily toward the Democratic Party, including $50,000 in donations to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and joint fundraising committee.

He is currently chair of NantWorks, LLC, Executive Director of the Wireless Health Institute at the University of California at Los Angeles, and an Adjunct Professor of Surgery at UCLA.

Patrick Soon-Shiong was born in South Africa to Chinese immigrants. He sold drug companies Abraxis and American Pharmaceutical Partners for a combined $9.1 billion. His biotech startup, NantHealth, went public in 2016; Patrick Soon-Shiong was born in South Africa to Chinese immigrants.

Surprising number of South Africans becoming prominent stateside. Obviously this guy won’t be a household name like Elon Musk or Charlize Theron, but it’s nonetheless remarkable.

If he was a conservative the liberals would be screaming bloody murder.

Yes, I agree. Right now the liberals hate him, and I figure he is like Trump. He donated to those in power to do business, but inside he is a Capitalist and sill do what he must to get what he wants done.

He will be an interesting Character to keep an eye on. From everything I have learned of individuals capitalist with a lot of money who come from South Africa, they are more conservative than many think and very shrewd in their business dealings.

Everything I learned about him, makes me feel that him and trump are more than just aquaintness. Maybe down the road they could become more than just golfing friends. Time will tell.

If he’s going to put out a balanced (conservatives included) newspaper he could turn that rag around...

Unfortunately, Bezos investment in the Washington Post just became more
valuable.

>>I remember the “New Republic” which Lyndon LaRouche published.

I used to read every issue cover to cover. Then, after the kangaroo court trial, it became “the New federalist”. Some of the other LaRouche publications were/are 21st Century Science and Technology, Fusion Energy Foundation Journal, Executive Intelligence Review, Fidelio (magazine on classical culture), The Campaigner.

Some of his books include-
Dope, Inc.
The New American Fascism
Are You Ready to Learn Economics?
Earth’s Next 50 Years
Children of Satan
The Science of Christian Economy
There Are No Limits to Growth
Terror, Love and Brainwashing: Attachment in Cults and Totalitarian Systems
The Vision of Alexander Hamilton
What Every Conservative Should Know About Communism
Treason in America
In Defense of Common Sense
Imperialism: The Final Stage of Bolshevism
Colonize Space!: Open the Age of Reason
The Road to Recovery
Outlines of American Political Economy
The Toynbee Factor in British Grand Strategy
The Power of Reason

All available on Amazon, along with many back issues of Executive Intelligence Review.
