Liberal Billionaire Sways Media

Liberal Billionaire Sways Media

Billionaire George Soros has spent $48 million funding media properties, including media-industry organizations, journalism schools and investigative journalism.

The left-leaning Soros, No. 46 on the Forbes list of The World’s Billionaires, has devoted his life to taking over American media, according to a report from FoxNews.com.

Through various philanthropic organizations, Soros has ties to more than 30 mainstream news outlets — including The New York Times, Washington Post, The Associated Press, NBC and ABC. Soros’ reach extends to training new journalists: He has provided funding for Columbia University’s School of Journalism (the President of which sits on the Pulitzer Prize committee, which recently awarded Soros-backed ProPublica its second Pulitzer).

As Fox put it, “Imagine if conservative media punching bags David and Charles Koch had this many connections to journalists. Even if the Kochs could find journalists willing to support conservative media (doubtful), they would be skewered by the left.”
