SORE ABOUT SOROS

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Me­dia Re­search Cen­ter busi­ness and cul­ture an­a­lyst Dan Gainor has fired off round two in a four-part vol­ley against lib­eral bil­lion­aire Ge­orge Soros, who spent $48 mil­lion in re­cent years fund­ing me­dia prop­er­ties, jour­nal­ism schools and in­dus­try or­ga­ni­za­tions. Mr. Gainor es­tab­lished that Mr. Soros has clear con­nec­tions to NBC, ABC, the New York Times and The Wash­ing­ton Post. But he also funds the Na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of Com­mu­nity Broad­cast­ers, the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of His­panic Jour­nal­ists and the Com­mit­tee to Pro­tect Jour­nal­ists.

“Read­ers un­happy with Soros’ me­dia in­flu­ence might be tempted to voice con­cerns to the Or­ga­ni­za­tion of News Om­buds­men — a pro­fes­sional group de­voted to ‘mon­i­tor­ing ac­cu­racy, fair­ness and bal­ance.’ Per­haps a di­rect com­plaint to one such as Na­tional Pub­lic Ra­dio’s Ali­cia Shep­ard or PBS’ Michael Getler, both direc­tors of the or­ga­ni­za­tion. Un­for­tu­nately, that group is also funded by Soros,” Mr. Gainor ob­serves.
