Not good for the United States, but good for CBS

Leslie Moonves, CBS executive chairman and CEO, likes the idea of a Donald Trump candidacy. From The Hollywood Reporter (not The Onion ), and picked up by Fortune :

“It may not be good for America, but it’s damn good for CBS,” he said of the presidential race. . . .

"Man, who would have expected the ride we’re all having right now? . . . The money’s rolling in and this is fun,” he said.

“I’ve never seen anything like this, and this going to be a very good year for us. Sorry. It’s a terrible thing to say. But, bring it on, Donald. Keep going,” said Moonves.
Even the famous misquotation “What’s good for General Motors is good for the country” at least purported to align corporate and national well-being. Moonves is more honest: what’s good for CBS is good for CBS.

Thinking about Leslie Moonves, I can only invoke the words of Edward L. Norton: “A pox on you and all your ancestors.”

I guess that devil, the one in red, loves to wear Prada. It can be a very expensive habit!
