CMI's Warren Buffett Report Discussed on 'The Five'
CMI's special report which revealed that Warren Buffett had donated more than $1.2 billion to pro-abortion groups, including Planned Parenthood, was discussed on Fox News' "The Five."
A partial transcript of the interview follows:
Bob Beckel: "Billionaire Warren Buffett has given a lot of money to charity over his lifetime, but he's also given a massive sum to abortion groups, and just how much is causing controversy. According to a new analysis by the media research center, Buffett gave more than $1.2 billion from 2001 to 2012. That amount could supposedly fund 2.7 million first trimester abortions. How much does this hurt the Oracle of Omaha's image? Eric."
Eric Bolling: "Yeah, I had no idea. Everyone knows that Warren Buffett has been very liberal. He's been a big Obama supporter, he had the "Buffett Tax," which is in essense another redistribution of wealth and no one could understand why the worlds most successful investor would be for that. But, where's the media pointing this out, that a billion dollars – he spent on pro-abortion causes, including something like $300 million dollars to Planned Parenthood?
"Now, what's it – you know, he's not running for elected office, so it's not really going to make that much of an effect on anything. But still, it would have been good to hear about that, I would have liked to know about that. By the way, a billion and a quarter – do you know how many teachers that could hire?"
