Billionaire Dallas Maverick’s owner Mark Cuban was a guest on Fox News recently, and completely shut down one of their anchors over his hypocrisy regarding Bill Clinton.
Fox’s Neal Cavuto was blasting the Clintons, especially Bill, for their high speaking fees, and for the proceeds benefiting the Clinton Foundation. Cuban was having none of it:
“Look, you have to ask yourself what’s the market for a former president giving a speech, right? So, first of all, Ronald Reagan was paid more than a million dollars for speeches in 1989. He went to Japan and gave two speeches.”
Boom! Cuban hit Fox News wear they live with that quote. The network is basically a shrine at which to worship Ronald Reagan, and they love them some capitalism, so Cuban’s words were a stinging rebuttal of their utter hypocrisy. Bill Clinton, according to Mark Cuban and those pesky little facts, simply took the fees that the market garnered him. That’s capitalism, baby!
“Second of all, Bill Clinton, I think it was $250k give or take, for a lot of speeches. I’ve made $250k for a bunch of speeches. For the most part, he gets paid a little more than I do, but the point is he was right inside the market. He wasn’t getting paid more or less than the market.”

Fox News certainly doesn’t like anyone pointing out anything remotely positive about a Clinton and remotely negative about Reagan. They certainly won’t enjoy Cuban’s comparison of the two. They would have an all melt-down if anyone dared to point out the myriad of shady and unethical ways that Hillary Clinton’s current opponent makes most of his cash.
