Publisher of ‘Nonpartisan’ Magazine to Host Fundraiser for Hillary

From the midweek edition of the Morning Jolt:

When You’re Hosting Fundraisers for Candidates, You’re Partisan, Buddy.

Chris Hughes, publisher and editor-in-Chief of The New Republic, January 27, 2013:

“The journalism in these pages will strive to be free of party ideology or partisan bias…”

Oh, shut up. Just shut up.

Chris Hughes, the publisher of The New Republic, and his husband, Sean Eldridge, will hold a fund-raiser for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign, two people briefed on the invitation said.

The event will be held on June 30 at the couple’s lower Manhattan home, the people said.

“Man, that guy is just a shameless partisan hack,” thought George Stephanopolous.
