Newt Gingrich put under AP Microscope

The media is beginning to look at Newt Gingrich as a possible candidate for the presidency. This AP article by Libby Quaid is entitled A look at Gingrich's business empire, and discusses the ways in which Gingrich has made his living since leaving the House nine years ago. My media bias alert system is in full swing.

The first clue is the article's title. Newt Gingrich has a "business empire?" He is paid for making speeches, writing books, giving television and radio commentary, and for consulting. He also has a political action committee that pays for some of his travel, and which will be his starting point should he decide to jump into the race.

We are duly informed that Gingrich and his aides will not disclose how much he makes from his writing and his speeches. So what? He's a private citizen, and as such, is not required to disclose his income. (Would Libby Quaid like to share her W2s with the rest of us? If I thought you all wouldn't die laughing, I might let you know how much I get paid too.) Should Gingrich officially enter the race, then he'll have to fill out an income disclosure form. But he's under no obligation to do so now. Meanwhile, we get the impression of yet another Republican fat cat who is pulling down big bucks.

You know, I can think of another prominent politician who has re-entered private life and makes money by writing, consulting, and making speeches. His name is Bill Clinton, and he rakes in millions from his activities. In speechmaking alone since he left the White House, he has made nearly $40 million. That doesn't take into account consulting fees for various companies and the advance he received for his biography. The only reason we have any idea as to what he makes is because his wife is a senator who is also running for president. Therefore, his income must be made public along with hers. Would Clinton's activities be called a "business empire" too? Somehow, I doubt it.

Articles like this are only the tip of the iceberg. Let the muckraking begin!

I want to know more about your "business empire," Pam. We deserve to know the truth!!

Do you mean the piddly paycheck from my day job and all the hours I put into my writing (both here and for FSM and elsewhere) for which I get no remuneration? Some empire. If the capitalist system depended upon me, we'd all be in a lot of trouble, LOL!
