After Spurning Democrats, Soros Gives $1 Million to Media Matters

soros 1 1 After Spurning Democrats, Soros Gives $1 Million to Media MattersGeorge Soros, the billionaire investor prone to throwing money at the left, will give $1 million to Media Matters, the liberal watchdog organization with the mission of combating conservative voices in the press, The Caucus blog at The New York Times reports.

In a statement, Media Matters described in dramatic fashion the problems that Soros’ funding may help stave off. 

Fox has transformed itself into a 24-7 G.O.P. attack machine, dividing Americans through fear-mongering and falsehoods and undermining the legitimacy of our government for partisan political ends.

Right-wingers have often jumped on the relationship between Media Matters and Soros as its benefactor. Media Matter denies Soros is pulling any strings. Glenn Beck accused the group of being a “left-wing George Soros-funded media machine” and claimed it called him a jihadist. So many media “machines,” so little time to rage against them. 

The announcement may give left-leaning politicos some relief. Earlier this month, Soros announced he would not be contributing the Democratic campaigns this election season, citing a Republican “avalanche” that he’s “in no position to stop.”

    We need to get Rockefeller and this clown a set of boxing gloves each and let them take it out on each other LOL  It is as petty as that but both sides of the isle are being controlled by these old men while our country goes down the tubes.  If you still thing the problem is liberal vs conservative you are not paying attention.
