George Soros donates $1 Mil to Huffington Post


UPDATE: Check out our new post: Huffington Post sold to AOL:

Does George Soros money come with the AOL Sale?

American Spectator: Soros buddy funds Huffington Post

The program’s startup budget will be $1.75 million. The money will be provided by the Huffington Post and the Atlantic Philanthropies. The Bermuda-based Atlantic Philanthropies is headed by Gara LaMarche, who used to be a vice president of liberal uber-philanthropist George Soros’s Open Society Institute. LaMarche is a member of Soros’s Democracy Alliance, a billionaires’ club that is organizing to impose socialism on America.

And then we have Media Matters:

According to the New York Times, Media Matters initially received “more than $2 million in donations from wealthy liberals” with ties to the Democratic party (including Peter Lewis, Steve Bing, Marcy Carsey, Susie Tompkins Buell, Leo Hindrey, Gail Furman, and James Hormel).[16][17][18] Byron York said Media Matters received an unspecified amount of funding from MoveOn.org, and the New Democrat Network.[18]

In 2004 Media Matters received the endorsement of the Democracy Alliance. Though the Alliance does not make direct donations to organizations, its endorsement resulted in direct donations to MMfA from Alliance members.[19][20][21] In October 2010 Alliance founding member George Soros announced his first donation to Media Matters.

When I caught Glenn Beck yesterday, he was hyperventilating about ole Georgie…. I was half paying attention, as I listened to his usual, about the Tides Foundation, et al.. When I checked out Huffington Post this morning, wow, he was right on. Then I read that Juan William was fired from NPR because of some statements he made on O’Reilly. Beck stated that NPR had received mony from Soros to hire 125 additional news reporters. 

Big Journalism now reports “The left-wing Open Society Foundations is donating the large sum to NPR for a project being called “Impact of Government.” The project is planning to add at least 100 reporters across the country to cover local state house politics to fill the holes left by the firing of so many local reporters due to the contraction in the field of journalism over the last decade.”

Did this seal Juan Williams fate? This is really getting heavy duty. This is right from the Huff:

Billionaire philanthropist George Soros has donated $1 million to Media Matters for America in an effort to fight Fox News.

Soros, a prominent Democratic fundraiser and donor, is a frequent target of Fox News hosts, particularly Glenn Beck. He said in a statement that he is donating the money — his first donation to the group — because of “recent evidence suggesting that the incendiary rhetoric of Fox News hosts may incite violence’.

Soros funds the Tides Foundation, the organization recently targeted by an assassin who claimed to have been inspired by Beck’s program.

“The next ‘assassin’ may succeed, and if so, there will be blood on many hands,” Tides Foundation CEO Drummond Pike said, urging advertisers to boycott Beck’s program.

On his radio show Wednesday, which is not aired by Fox News, Beck accused Soros of having “collapsed four economies” and of having “global governance plans.” hffington Post here

    I was just on HuffPost and was reading about the American Community Survey. The Dutiful “journalist” was writing that those fear mongering Republicans were trying to make the Census Bureau and Commerce Dept’s ‘ACS’ voluntary and not forced compliance by decree of law. The Journalist was decrying the fact that all indications are that there will be a huge drop in people filling out the survey…LOL. Well yeah… I plan to perform my non-compliance, now that they have sent me my little packet of joy. Tell you the truth I am ready to lose everything I have and go to jail before I’ll fill out that SOB survey. At 63 this is a big decision and I do not make it lightly, all kidding aside. Anyway… It is fun to read the wit and wisdom from HuffyToads…. As all do they are reveling in their camaraderie within the protected halls of like-minded brothers, So they are especially nasty and revealing of their twisted little spirits. I gave them my view of things… and My brothers, it might not be to your liking, as well. For you see, I see the Right Left system as a big fat diversion. Truly I nave a visceral hate and brilliantly justified distrust of communism, socialism, and corporatist collectivism… and I am quite aware of the financial backing of all forms of socialism and that includes the huge American Money Trust backing of the Bolshevik and Nazi takeovers (an to many others to list here). Nevertheless, I find the Republican Party disgusting, now… and I had been a Republican since my youth. That’s not to say I have any tolerance for the Idiot Democrat Party. But I digress….. As childish as it may be, I have had a delightful evening knowing there are some apoplectic Libs, a Huffin and a Puffin, tonight on the HuffPost. But most of all I hope and , Yes , Pray… that a tiny seed was planted that will scour out their brainwashing just as some provocative Johny Freedomseed started my brain unshackling a few years back. An unintended aid in my awakening was the Republican leadership and their chosen-boy, John McCain… liken it to electroshock therapy… to restore sanity. They just went too darn far that time; oh yes and they stayed true to their fun & games for the latest Neo-Con job, Mitt… and I love them for it. Free at Last, LOL!
