Great to see Bono rubbing shoulders with assholes...

...like media mogul and complete tw#t Rupert Murdoch. While your there Bono can you ask the Aussie bast#rd if the English can watch there OWN Cricket team on national tv and not have to pay subscription money to an Aussie's shite tv company. Oh how the mighty have fallen!

U know, Bono HAS said that despite the MANY differences and disagreements between him and W, he does genuinely like the man, and thinks he's a good person.

Smart ass. I'm just making a point. People are always screaming, "How could he hang with him or her, etc...." and when it comes to W, he's been clear on how he feels about the guy, so it should be a non-issue.

Oh, you have to watch your cricket team on pay TV? Welcome to NZ. Except it isn't just the cricket. Its rugby, football, league....there's just about nothing live on free to air.

Did you say he was rubbing his shoulders or rubbing shoulders with?





Who cares...it's all for a good cause, doesn't mean Bono's anybody's puppet....does it?

Oh and by the way, Murdoch is now a naturalised US citizen.

Being Australian just didn't get him enough tax breaks, or something.

There's something about Bono presenting at Murdoch's annual sales meeting (that's effectively what it is) that sits uncomfortably with me more than rubbing shoulders with Bush or anybody else.
I assume he is going in with a mission, rather than be paid to come in and give a 'motivational' speech.. if that's the case he should get back to the day job.

I don't think he accepts payments for his speeches.

LOL, this is his day job. the band is his evening gig and anyway, it sits more comfortably with me to see him "lecturing" at events such as this - that's what spreading a message is all about, not preaching to the converted.

This is a hard concept for some people to understand.

I see and agree with your point... I just have issue with anything to do with Murdoch!

My guess if that he probably has a speaker's fee of around $200-250k per appearance booked through his agency. This is based on the sales estimate of his ticketed events. For example, when he spoke in DC to ASAE, that was part of a series of several speakers(including Larry King) over many weeks. But for Bono's speech only, ASAE sold $95 tickets to the public (around 3000).

This may not be important to anyone other than Cricket fans in England but Test Matches in England were forever shown on FTA television. So for Englands matches to only be available on pay tv, and worse than that, an AUSTRALIANS pay tv company just pisses me off big time. Still as long as there are fuc#ing idiots that are quite prepared to pay the Australian £40 a month for the privilege of watching our national team then nothing will ever change. So to see Bono rubbing shoulders with such an asshole and others similar, kinda shows how far Bono has fallen. Still he is running for US president though isn't he?
