CNNs Fareed Zakaria to Boxing Champ Manny Pacquiao: "You know, there are reports, your Forbes magazine, other places say you make tens maybe more millions of dollars, $40 million one year. Philippines is a very poor country. 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?"

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.
He’s not taking a morsel from the mouth of any Filipino. He probably sends money home.
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.
You know this question would never have been asked if Pacquiao had come out for gay marriage.
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 Becks 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?
This is payback for Pacquiao’s stance on gay marriage.
Hey Fareek! Is It Wrong For You To Make Millions While People Are Unemployed In Your Country?...
Follow up; How much do you make for doing nothing?
Well Fareed considering the number of people that watch my fights I would say yes.....Now are the “Anchors” of CNN worth Millions considering the ratings are dropping like lead? (The libs have been after Manny ever since he spoke the truth about Gay Marriage)
“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
