Are they going to get a square meal if he goes to work in a warehouse instead? What kind of head injury prompts a question like that?

Fareed Zakaria is a millionaire muslim born in India and got a green card by marrying an American. What a slimy hypocrite.

Bet they wouldn’t ask all the black athletes in this country making millions playing pro ball while there is poverty in the black inner cities that question

Someone should ask Fareed about all of the starving people back in his native India. Especially his fellow muslim Indians.

Reports are that CNN has lost 50% of it’s viewers for their talking heads in the past 12 months.

Wonder if this is part of why.

Leftist Idiots.

Fareed is a camel jockey who needs to return to wherever he came from. In all the discussion of CNN’s nose dive in ratings no one has mention the camel jockey freak.

Fareed Zakaria is a rich, effete, leftist elitist. Is it right for him to make all the money that CNN pays him when we have record numbers of people on food stamps?

Actually, he is not worth his pay in any sense-- who is watching CNN anyway?

If people are starving they need to move to where the foods at...
They should start out when food becomes hard to get..

Pacquiao’s reputation for charity is well-known. He has his own charity and he gives plenty out of his own pocket. He owes no explanation to anyone.

Who other than an avowed communist would ask such a question? He knows he’s talking to Pacquaio, and he should be able to see that he’s been more than generous with his money - especially to his home country. The average braindead viewer probably doesn’t know that, but it’s a totally irresponsible question.

Zakaria gave commencement addresses to the 2012 graduating classes at Harvard University and Duke University.

Wow spend 200 grand on tuition and get to hear this jackass at graduation, LOL

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria is a Soros stooge. A Muslim alien who hates the U.S. and has no idea of how repulsive his ideology is to ordinary Americans. His classic liberal ‘gotcha!’ question to boxer Manny Pacquiao is based on the leftist collectivist mentality that looks with great displeasure on anyone that has great wealth when others do not. As if taking away Manny Pacquiao’s hard-earned money would somehow relieve his native country (or any country) of poverty. Stupid, of course, but a conditioned reflex for most lefties.

The boxer missed a golden opportunity. He should have loudly yelled, “Hey, somebody get this guy a pair of gloves! He wants to go a few rounds with me to see if I am earning my money!”

As CNNs ratings continue the slide into near zero territory, I’m betting they will have a lot of highly paid help hitting the street.

If an athlete is making millions it means that the people who support the industry paying him are making hundreds of millions, from the front-office workers to the guys who park cars at the event venue. Take away his millions and you take away their thousands.

I’d love to script Manny:

“Fareed you’re a one percenter. You could resign and CNN could hire a dozen unemployed Ivy League journalism majors struggling to pay off student loans. How about it?”

Well he hasn’t made dollar one from me, so meh.

Yes I think pro sports “stars” are grossly overpaid, so I do the only thing I believe is fitting: I don’t buy their product. However, if other people want to waste their money supporting this ludicrous state of affairs, that’s entirely up to them.

They lost me 15 years ago when I got FNC on my cable system.

I did watch once in awhile when they had Glen Beck’s show on. Other than that I never have watched CNN since Fox was available to me.

I can not imagine why anyone would. CNN is only marginally less biased than MSNBC

Pacquiao has offered Floyd Mayweather a 40/40 split of the purse with winner taking the other 20%; I’m sure he’d be willing to make that 30/30/40 with the 40 going to any reasonable Phillipines charity.

Socialist libtards use the method of guilt to try to make people voluntarily to be altruistic and sacrifice their values.

Were Johnson, Rains, or Gorelick asked a similar question when each ran Fannie - how can you make millions when so many are homeless or underwater on their home mortgages?

I’m going to guess he’s not making most of that by taking it from the starving Filipinos. So no. Next question?

“Do you think that there is some, there is something wrong with somebody, with somebody in the Philippines making that much money when people are starving in your country?”

No, as long as you don’t get all Elizabeth Warren about it.

Money, get away
Get a good job with more pay and your O.K.
Money it’s a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
New car, caviar, four star daydream,
Think I’ll buy me a football team
Money get back
I’m all right Jack keep your hands off my stack.
Money it’s a hit
Don’t give me that do goody good bullshit
I’m in the hi-fidelity first class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear jet
Money it’s a crime
Share it fairly but don’t take a slice of my pie
Money so they say
Is the root of all evil today
But if you ask for a rise it’s no surprise that they’re
giving none away

So because there are poor people in the Philippines, nobody from that country should be rich?

Hey Fareed Zakaria, do you think that there is something wrong with you making alot of money in the United States when people are starving in this country?

Lately I have seen a few CNN excerpts streamed to the web that presented things in a rather conservative light.

Suspect they have been trying to test the water to see what that would do. Would they anger their Lib base or would it spark a few more hits from their non-base.

Phoney is as phoney does. Yes, they still Suck.

I would love to hear that Manny Pacquiao responded with "Fareed, you're making millions doing commentary on a network that nobody watches. Is it wrong for you to make that much money, with so little to show for it, while people are starving in your country?"

Oh, to have been there...

Pacquiao is making money off of rich Americans, and spreading it around here in the Philippines.

He is an inspiration to young Filipinos to work hard and achieve your goals in life.

He is a member of congress and works hard to support charities here.

Why should he feel guilty?

I must have missed the clips you are referring to.

I have not seen anything conservative out of CNN.

But then I would have to have the clip emailed to me. I would not watch anything from CNN unless someone suggested it to me.
