Today in the New Gilded Age


US gaming tycoon Sheldon Adelson gesture

Sheldon Adelson buys newspaper to plant fake stories about a judge with the temerity to try to enforce the law against Sheldon Adelson.

I also like this detail about the fake journalist created by Adelson’s lackey to plant the story:

Edward Clarkin holds himself out to be a reporter for the New Britain Herald, a small paper in Connecticut with a circulation of about 7500. Prior to this month, Clarkin’s only articles for the New Britain Herald were four effusive restaurant reviews published in 2011. “If A Taste of Poland is anything like Warsaw or Krakow, I’m buying an airplane ticket tomorrow,” Clarkin wrote.

Gee, I wonder if A Taste of Poland purchased advertising in “Edward Clarkin’s” newspaper? More on the sale here.
