Leftist Ford Foundation Cuts WaPo $500K Check (July 30, 2012)
Breitbart.com, Big Journalism ^ | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 11/08/2012 8:15:18 PM PST by Steelers6

According to the Washington Post, the Ford Foundation has given the newspaper some $500,000 to hire four new staff – a lucrative $125,000 per job deal. The goal: to try “new approaches to preserve and advance high-quality journalism.” The four new positions will “work on special projects related to money, politics and government … The one-year-grant – with an agreement in principal for two additional years – is part of the Foundation’s Freedom of Expression program, an initiative aimed at promoting journalism in the public interest.” The Ford Foundation recently handed $1 million to the Los Angeles Times to cover “Vietnamese, Korean and other immigrant communities, the California prison system, the border region and Brazil.”

The Ford Foundation was taken over by Leftists decades ago.

Remember that Zer0's Commie Mommie had some kind of funding connection from the Ford Foundation back in the day.

The Ford Foundation is TOTALLY distinct from Ford Motor Corporation. The former has been lefty for decades. The latter disdained the auto bailout and pulled forward on its own. Ford Motors is a fabulous and patriotic company!

For what it's worth...the Ford Foundation is completely autonomous from the Ford Motor Company.

Ford Foundation has been radically LEFT for a decade or more.

I really don't think anyone should put Ford in the same class as the bailed-out GM & Chrysler.

Ford's CEO and the company in general, has some character beyond their competitors.

Ford Foundation and Ford Motor Company are two separate entities. They are not connected.

The Ford Foundation has zero to do with the Ford Motor Company

It was setup by the Fords to keep control of the voting stock in the company.

Henry Ford 2d the last Ford on the Foundation resigned and called them communist.

The Foundation has been Hijacked by Communist, same as Anneberg Foundation who Walter Anneberg a huge Republican who was an Ambassador for Nixon.

These people never thought their Foundation would be stolen by Leftist.

Stop making sense. The OP is trying to blurt out all kinds of st00pit stuff when he has no idea whatsoever of the subject matter.

You're interrupting him.

“Leftist Ford Foundation Cuts WaPo $500K Check, Boycott Ford Motor Company”

This is not the title of the article you linked at Breitbart. “Boycott Ford Motor Company” must have been added by you. What is the relationship between the Ford Foundation and the Ford Motor Company? There is none to my knowledge. Also wasn’t Ford the only one of the “Big Three” who refused a Federal Obama bailout?

I’ve come to the conclusion it’s better to buy Japanese cars and reward a fantastic culture where hard work is still an ideal and where women respect their men.

After all, don’t the leftists always say b.s. platitudes like: “One world, one peace” “globalism” and “countries should have no borders.”

Well, if we’re supposed to be a “global village with no borders,” then buy your cars from the Japanese instead of supporting Union Fascist Thugs in US Auto companies. With the Unions, you’re giving money to the enemy.

Ford Motor Company is a haven for UAW thugs and criminals. Abundant reason to boycott their asses without using the Ford Foundation for a reason.

You are correct, the Ford Foundation is (now) separate from the company.

That said, this owner of a long, long line of mostly Fords just bought a Japanese car (made in America, but non-union).

Lots of reasons, but certainly one is that the Ford would have sent some my money to the fungi at UAW (and thus to the rodent Dems).

(That said, Ford is a zillion times more preferable than g.m. or chrysler...icky)

Ford Motors is as nazi as they come and always was. You might as well drive Wolkswagen. A while back, a big blob of the ownership was “palestinian” holdings.

My Dad's been a ford man since he purchased a used 56 F-100 Ford Pickup.

But he wouldn't give you a plug nickel for the new ones. He sez they've cheapened them up, the suspension sucks and all the electronic doodads and computer crap under the hood make them nearly impossible to work on.

We are looking for a 60's model Ford pickup and we are gonna fix it up. Not for shows and stuff but an actual work truck that you can fix if it breaks down.

Then he hasn't driven one or hauled a load with one through mountain passes. What is there to work on except oil changes and brakes for the first 100,000 miles?

NPR especially has played this little game for decades.

A liberal foundation gives big money to hire a liberal “journalist” to report on stories endorsed and approved by the liberal foundation.

The takeover of these foundations by Alinskyite communists was one of Zero's primary activities during his Chicago “community organizing” days.

Stanley Kurtz has documented it in great detail.

That’s what I did with an old 1998 Viper I bought. It was just missing the suspension and I fixed it by researching/hunting down original suspensions for it. Either that or I bid again on Barrett-Jackson.

What the hell does that even mean? Furthermore, I just finished reading your entire posting history. Quite bizarre to me. Nevertheless, I will defer to TheOldLady and her entourage to decipher and figure out if the Viking Kitties need to be called.

Until then, I'll stick with boycotting the MSM as I have for the past 15 years.

The Ford Foundation has been Left since at least the late 60s - way before Obama was on the scene. No outsider was needed to ruin that institution - the inmates who run that asylum are the some of the nuttiest people on earth.

Why? The Ford Foundation has nothing to do with the automaker that refused a bailout and in true American fashion, pulled forward on its own - quite differently than GM or Chrysler. I’ve bought nothing but Fords for the past 4 years (2), well, other than Peterbilt tractors for my business.

So a liberal political group has literally bought themselves four journalists at this paper. Well, at least they are in the open about it.

Maybe we should just pass disclosure laws, and make the reporters wear the logos of their sponsors when they are on the air, like in NASCAR. That way, Americans will know that Rachel Maddow is brought to you by Planned Parenthood and Ed Schultz is sponsored tonight by SEIU.

The head of the Ford Foundation used to be Peter Geithner, a friend of Obama’s mother (Ann Dunham), and the father of Tim Geithner, whom Obama appointed as Secretary of the Treasury.

I wasn't talking about the Ford Foundation.

Zero teamed up with Bill Ayers to use Annenberg money to fund a communist takeover of the Chicago schools.

There were other “projects” of a similar ilk in Zero's Chicago resume.

Do you have vote fraud? All of those mentioned, plus Teamsters, one suspects.

As an unwilling union member for decades, I can promise you that they are a political arm of the Dem party, with the only question being, who runs whom?
