A Little Irony re: Foreign Investment

By March 14, 2006General

Singer Randy Newman once remarked that the reason his famously tongue-in-cheek music wasn’t more popular is because there’s not a public hue and cry for more irony. Maybe so, but we just love the stuff.

Thanks to a sharp-eyed blog reader who’s been following the ports dispute which we wrote about last week. He was watching Fox News Sunday, with guests Reps. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and Mike Pence (R-IN) and later, Sen.Chris Dodd (D-CT). All decried the DP World Ports deal in one way or another.

When it came time for a commercial, the sponsor was the Lenovo Group. For the un-churched among you, Lenovo is the largest personal computer maker in the People’s Republic of China.

So, no matter how anybody felt about the port deal, foreign investment is a good thing for Fox News. Kept ’em on the air on Sunday, anyway.
