It's a scene journalists dream about - a group of coworkers toasting a Pulitzer Prize. For the team at investigative start-up ProPublica, it was the second time their fellow professionals recognized their work for journalism's top honor.
For George Soros and ProPublica's other liberal backers, it was again proof that a strategy of funding journalism was a powerful way to influence the American public.
It's a strategy that Soros has been deploying extensively in media both in the United States and abroad. Since 2003, Soros has spent more than $48 million funding media properties, including the infrastructure of news - journalism schools, investigative journalism and even industry organizations.
And that number is an understatement. It is gleaned from tax forms, news stories and reporting. But Soros funds foundations that fund other foundations in turn, like the Tides Foundation, which then make their own donations. A complete accounting is almost impossible because a media component is part of so many Soros-funded operations.
This information is part of an upcoming report by the Media Research Centers Business & Media Institute which has been looking into George Soros and his influence on the media.
Soros wants everyone to love him. He’s been a self-centered bum all his life.
Soros is probably suffering from survivor guilt, since he denied his Jewish ethnicity and assisted the Nazis in confiscating Jewish property.
But Soros just wants honest, reporting is all LOL
...not much when you consider how much he has made because of his buddy Dumbo moratorium on drilling and Soro’s billions invested in Venezuela.
And what’s his return on the investment?
I am hoping for a complete listing of paid propagandists.
Obama gives Brazil $2 Billion for oil drilling
Soros owns 25% of the only oil company in Brazil
Soros pockets the dollars and give some of the profits to the news media
The news media then supports Obama
Look how many MSM “journalists” are willing to prostitute themselves for Soros’ money.
Obama has no choice — the puppet master pulls his strings, he dances.
48 million out of his several thousand million (ie: billions) is like a “P” in the pool to Soros.
He could probably find that much between his couch cushions.
100 percent correct.
Check Here. Lots of legwork has been done by Horowitz's diligent sleuths.
