Bill Clinton to Address News Corp. Retreat

Bill Clinton has accepted an invitation from Rupert Murdoch to address News Corporation executives this August at a corporate retreat in Pebble Beach.

A News Corp. spokesperson confirmed that Murdoch had invited Clinton and globe-trotting New York Times op-ed columnist Thomas Friedman to speak at the event, which will be held at the Pebble Beach Golf Club. Friedman declined due to a scheduling conflict, according to the columnist’s assistant and the News Corp. spokesperson. But Clinton was available and willing.

“We have a good relationship with the former President,” the spokesperson said.

Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
