Obama donor in process of buying up and ‘destroying’ America’s top pro-gun media outlets

Employees of Obama donor Leo Hindery Jr.’s media conglomerate Intermedia Partners, which now owns most of the top gun-culture media outlets in the country, believe that Hindery plans to gut and destroy all of them as part of a business plan that has already led to numerous layoffs and the virtual shuttering of prominent television production facilities in Minnesota and Montana.

Hindery, who was in consideration to be President Barack Obama’s secretary of commerce, is managing partner of Intermedia Partners. The New York-based media private equity fund owns Intermedia Outdoor Holdings, which publishes 17 hunting, fishing, and shooting magazines, including Guns & Ammo, Handguns, Gun Dog, Rifle Shooter and Shooting Times.

InterMedia Outdoor Holdings purchased the pro-gun hunting and fishing network the Sportsman Channel in 2007, and is now in the process of acquiring the Outdoor Channel, pending the federal government’s approval of last month’s merger between InterMedia Outdoors and Outdoor Channel Holdings.

    I find it hard to believe that someone like Hindery Jr. would allow his beliefs to supplant his pocketbook! I can hear the conversation with the other board members. “If you think we’re taking a bath on the outdoor group because of some — what did you call it? A principle?— you’re out of your mind!”

  • runstowin

    If that happens, I believe ten more firearms related sources will spring up to relace them. The marketplace abhors a vacuum.

  • Evermyrtle

    He is marching around the country everyday with his followers and saying, destroy this, close that down, stop this one from their work, One by one he is destroying America,

  • Evermyrtle

    Of course the guns must go??He cannot gain complete control of America, as long as we have our guns. He does not have a clue that GOD ALMIGHTY is in control, he thinks that he is god, himself..

  • Desert Viking

    As Andrew Breitbart would have said, SO WHAT? Let Hindery throw his money away buying up and shutting down whatever he wants to. It will give him absolutely no power whatsoever to prevent new publications from being started up by enterprising gun enthusiasts and entrepreneurs, and advertisers will still be in need of venues to promote their products. Does Hiney have enough money to buy up all of the companies of all of those advertisers, as well? (The answer is no). As John Kerry asserted just a few days ago, in American you have a right to be stupid. If he wants to flush his money down the toilet to make himself temporarily feel smug and pleased with himself, let him. Maybe I will start my own firearms publication and then just sit back and wait for him to come knocking on my door with a sweet buyout offer! What a dumbass.

      You may have an idea that will drain the life out of this man with more money than brains! To begin another publication and pick up the ads then the distribution established and once established let him come then make the price of buy out astronomical! But with control of the others he will have an advantage of ads pricing! Could be a double edged sword!?

    • Black Rain

      I didn’t understand John Kerry’s statement, was he saying he is stupid and as an American we have the right to be stupid. I glad he finely called himself stupid and the Obarry admin stupid. He is representing American and Judas Obarry. Stupid is as stupid does, John Kerry is stupid.
      My bet is Org for Action is funding Leo Hindery, Jr and his spending spree.

      “SO WHAT? Let Hindery throw his money away buying up and shutting down whatever he wants to. It will give him absolutely no power whatsoever…” …and it may just piss off a few thousand newly unemployed people that I would welcome to our side with open arms! No pun intended.

    Do these tyrants trying to control everything think that others will not rise up to fill the void? If so, they are only fooling themselvs, and maybe a few lemmings.

  • Desert Viking

    I didn’t realize until now, but I believe this is the first time I have ever agreed with something John Kerry said. Perhaps he is not as stupid as I thought he was. Oh, wait – yes, he is.

    These are just sorces of entetainment , we don’t need them and if they are destroyed we may have enough money to buy MORE guns and ammo . ( Not the Magazines ) .

    Does this guy have a gang of armed thugs to protect him? How would he like a “drone” to pay him a visit? How about a cruise missile? Oh, I forgot, the Dictator-in-Chief owns all of that stuff, too! KEEP RELOADING, AMERICA!!

    • violater1

      He may own all that but keep in mind shiit happens!

    Patriot Outdoor needs to peruse the contents of purchase contract(s) to determine (their) full scope. Let us know what restrictions might have been placed upon future involvement in this type media production – who might be prohibited, what infrastructure might be prohibited, etc………. Seems to me that this should open the door to a fine business opportunity for patriotic persons or entities.

    So communications between us becomes more difficult, doesn’t change a thing. And it will get worse. Still doesn’t change a thing.

    Oh! how the mighty will fall. Everybody who thought they were somebody mighty thru the ages died.. Yes, died, rotted and went to wherever despots and tyrants go in the afterlife. Barack hussein obama, george soros and all their thugs and minions who are holding an entire nation to ransom are going to pay most dearly for their wickedness and transgressions. I have no doubt that even though george soros and others will try their best, and try their dambdest to suppress and threaten gun owners.. They will never never be successful – not in my lifetime. Hang on to you weapons and start to fine comb 314 Million americans, there must be someone out there with the cue balls and integrity to take on a corrupt and evil government.

    Sportsmen are being forced underground. Keep you guns clean and gather as much ammo for your guns as you can afford. It is better to have the ammo and not need, than to need the ammo and not have it!

    Of course this is the way of capitalism. Let them do and spend their money. We will just start up more on line were it is cheaper to operate . They will have wasted their money and we will have the last laugh with all the information still getting out.

    The smaller a man is, the larger his perception of his own deeds and power.

  • Me Again

    We will be like Venezuela before Obama is done. All the people in Florida saying it was great Chavez is dead, helped put Obama back in office. This is like Germany in the ’30s. Then you have people, ONCE RESPECTED, like Bill Cosby saying the GOP wants slavery back. These people are disgusting

  • Pvt.Joker

    Perhaps he can host a giant rally with Obama, Jarrett and Holder all presiding over a nighttime torch march and sing-a-long of his DHS storm troopers, followed by a big book burning? That would be EXACTLY what this country NEEDS to see Obama and his minions in the context of being. Maybe then, a few more might remember the old saying “Never again!”???

  • ves

    What happened to the Anti-Monolopy and Anti-Trust Laws??? When the advertisers see that their business has fallen off he’s out of business and when y’all find out he has bought a mag cancel your subscription!
