If his investment portfolio is any indication, Supreme Court nominee John Roberts may turn out to be the most media savvy justice on the Supreme Court, according to Broadcasting & Cable, which reports that media companies make up 15 to 40 percent of his $3 million in stock investments.
“A review of Roberts’ recently filed financial-disclosure statement shows that, while much of his money is in mutual funds, six of the 29 individual stocks he owns are in media. The report doesn’t detail the holdings, listing only broad ranges. But Roberts owns between $100,000 and $250,000 worth of Time Warner, XM Satellite Radio and Microsoft. He holds smaller stakes in Disney, Scientific-Atlanta and Blockbuster Entertainment.”
