Remember all the manufactured outrage when Rush Limbaugh wanted to buy a piece of the St. Louis Rams? The mere thought of it was met with howls of indignation of race charlatans and hucksters. Well, now belligerent “comedian” Bill Maher has bought a piece of the New York Mets and nobody seems offended by his past behavior.
Fresh off their Bernie Madoff fiasco, is this the direction the Mets want to go in? I guess they’ll take money from anyone.
Funny really is money.
Bill Maher, the host of HBO’s “Real Time,” announced on Sunday at Citi Field that he had purchased a minority stake in the Mets earlier this year — and the sometimes controversial, always funny comedian wasn’t kidding.
Always funny? Is this a news story or opinion piece?
Maher, a lifelong Mets fan, says he thinks he made a “great investment” by purchasing a share in the team.
“I think people sometimes forget there’s only one National League franchise in New York City, and they’re not making anymore,” he said. “I just thought it would be a great place, especially after I’ve seen some of the ways money can disappear in recent years. I had my money in Lehman Brothers in 2008.”
