This morning, on Morning Joe, regular guest, Donny Deutsch, commented that now, with the purchase of the LA Dodgers by a hedge fund fronted by Magic Johnson, all the major sports teams are owned by Hedge Funds. I don't have the time or resources to track down the accuracy of the claim but even if MOST of the major sports teams are owned by hedge funds or hedge fund managers, that gives me pause for thought and raises some questions.
-Major league sports are the most attention-getting media phenomenon for the conservatives' strongest demographic group-- males.
-How do the hedge fund managers use the sports team to support their financial interests.
What affect does the ownership of these teams by banksters have on American culture, if any?
I'm just saying. This is an unexpected bit of information for me. I'm more interested in the comments that come out of this than my own words. What do you think?
