Progressive Billionaire George Soros Giving $1.8 Mil. To NPR To Quell Tea Party Hate?Posted by Al @ 2:32 pm
Now look who shilling for NPR. There should again be any question as to NPR’s agenda, Mr. George Soros reveals his funding to NPR for 100 investigated journalist.
Vivian Schiller, NPR president and CEO, said the boost puts the public radio stations in a better position than other news outlets to cover the impact of state government on local communities.
“Our network provides a perfect vehicle for cross-state, cross-region, and national analyses of the most critical issues facing our country,” Schiller said in the statement…
“There is no question in my mind that the country — and the world — will be better off if Democrats keep control,” Soros reportedly wrote in an e-mail to OpenSecrets blog, which is run by CPR…“The Republicans have become so extreme in their rhetoric,” Soros said. “For me, the Tea Party is a movement of intolerance … My donations will help to combat this intolerance, I hope.”
…Meanwhile, NPR said it will use the Open Society Foundation donation to solicit applications for “pilot projects” among member stations that will be selected in December and launched in March 2011.
I guess the progressives figured they should go ahead and tell us what we already know. Yes we know who’s shilling for NPR and Schiller.
