Sheldon Adelson was reported to have dished $150 million into the election to get his interests passed. He is worried about being vilified in legal proceedings in his other dirty dealings. Cenk hypothesizes that Adelson purposefully allowed this story to be leaked to the media so that all of the Republican tools he’s bought will be on notice to protect him if he’s targeted by elected officials for his illegal activity.
President Obama is negotiating like a progressive with stonewalling conservatives. He and other Democrats are openly realizing that conceding without any real stance hasn’t been working.

Their offer includes a $200 billion tax break for the richest in lower tax rates. They also want means testing for Medicare and other changes that those recipients openly reject.
Bad news on climate change. The proposed goal to keep carbon emissions down to avoid being screwed isn’t being adhered to. Audio of Nate Silver talking trash to Politico over their disbelief in his assessment of the polls leading up to the election. NewsCorp is closing down a magazine called The Daily, that was only available on iPads if customers paid without knowing anything about it.
