As good as free college may sound, it is an economic fantasy. But that did not stop media outlets from embracing two recent studies arguing for loan forgiveness promoted by liberal, Soros-funded groups. A Jan. 11, study from the left-leaning Brookings Institution calling for increased federal regulation on for-profit colleges was lauded by media including Business Insider, The Washington Post, Forbes and Quartz. Another study from Soros-funded Bard College’s Levy Economics Institute also called for student debt forgiveness in early February. MarketWatch, New York Magazine, Mic and Fast Company all promoted the Bard analysis.
Those who linger at the The New Yorker magazine's website eventually see a splash advertising its dedication to "fighting fake stories with real ones." Staff writer John Cassidy's ridiculous assertion that "George Soros Upstaged Donald Trump at Davos" shows that this is clearly false advertising.
Both ABC and NBC on Thursday night and Friday morning skipped rabid leftist George Soros’s ranting in Davos that Donald Trump is a “threat to the world” and close to a “mafia state.” Only CBS — and only for a combined 29 seconds — bothered to report on the influential billionaire’s latest comments.
While acknowledging that technological advances “have made it easier for Americans to connect with each other and to find information, including details about the major issues facing the country,” a poll conducted in late 2017 by four liberal foundations indicates that media bias and “fake news” are still serious problems.
The mayor of New York City is suing the five largest oil companies in the world over climate change. Far left New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Jan. 10, his city was suing BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil and Royal Dutch Shell seeking billions of dollars to “recoup money spent by the city for resiliency efforts related to climate change,” Associated Press reported. Some of the companies disputed his allegations or argued they’ve made “good faith attempts to address climate change.”
Liberal media bias has existed for years, but in 2017, it appeared to reach unprecedented levels given the media’s hostility to President Donald Trump. The media distorted many stories in 2017, in many different ways. They ranged from lies such as Al Gore’s claim that “Superstorm Sandy” proved a global warming prediction from An Inconvenient Truth was true, to using Big Bird to mislead about public broadcasting budget cuts.
Soros-funded journalism is coming to seven states in 2018, thanks to ProPublica. The liberal journalism nonprofit announced on Dec. 9 it had chosen journalists in Louisiana, West Virginia, Oregon, New Mexico, Indiana, Illinois and Florida to receive year-long stipends to pursue ProPublica-approved investigations.
One of the big questions surrounding the December 12 election in Alabama for the U.S. Senate seat is who is behind a mystery super PAC backing Democrat candidate Doug Jones against Republican Roy Moore. The Washington Post last Thursday claimed that there was no evidence of such funding by George Soros. However on the day before the election, Politico weighed in with a big story about the mystery super PAC, Highway 31, with much greater detail of the players involved.
Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) fired famous radio personality Garrison Keillor over “allegations of his inappropriate behavior with an individual who worked with him,” on Nov. 29, 2017. MPR has been funded by multiple liberals including George Soros and the Ford Foundation.
A “secretive” network of liberal donors co-founded by George Soros is pushing to elect liberal prosecutors in 2018, according to a document obtained by the Free Beacon. But further behind the scenes, Soros is funding even-more-radical plans -- to potentially take away the people’s right to elect judges.
Giving to Planned Parenthood is ironically a family business when it comes to liberal billionaire George Soros. But rarely do big media outlets fully investigate the money flow.
Sunday’s New York Times featured Monica Davey reporting from the hard-left, anti-Trump “Women’s Convention” held in Detroit last weekend: “At Women’s Convention, Sustaining Momentum With Focus on Elections.” Davey managed not to notice the monolithic left-wing ideological component of the convention, featuring groups heavily funded by left-wing billionaire donor George Soros. There was not a single “left-wing” or even “liberal” label in a story about a convention featuring Rep. Maxine Waters and Muslim “feminist” Linda Sarsour, as well as the sponsors Planned Parenthood, MoveOn.org and the ACLU. Davey quoted Waters and Sarsour, but skipped the more radical and embarrassing moments from Waters and Sarsour, who made a disgusting Twitter attack on two former Muslim critics of radical Islam in 2011.
