This probably won't surprise anybody. I only took time to search for this because I was asked by someone if GS has his hands in public radio and I couldn't find a direct answer. Well, I found it. I'm not surprised Soros has given money to NPR, what does surprise me is that I didn't see any conservative blogs with this. I'm also surprised that I could find it directly on NPR's site, though it's not often mentioned.
-----Mr. Soros, thanks so much for being with us.
Mr. GEORGE SOROS (Financier, Soros Fund Management): It's my pleasure.
SIMON(speaking to George Soros): Of course, we also have to note that your foundation has given about a quarter of a million dollars to NPR in recent years.
But let me ask you-----
The text makes it clear that he's speaking directly to GS when he says these things. If you doubt, listen to the first 30 seconds of the audio. I'm glad the audio still works given it's from 2006.
The RWJF is known for working with soros inc.
And they are a major funder of NPR as well. Again, shouldn't be any surprise to anybody around here, but just because something isn't a surprise doesn't mean it shouldn't be said at all.

These two NPR stories are unimportant to what I'm posting here, I just grabbed them quickly to point out the RWJF funding.
I hope that if there's more to this, that conservative blogs will find this a good starting point.
Sometimes the best place to hide something is right out in the open, though clearly they didn't try to hide this. It was just stated as a matter of fact - and then let's just keep moving on. No no, not so fast. I say we should examine this.
all federal funding for NPR should of been eliminated when we were in power
Same with PBS.
Were we conservatives in power?
Or were the republicans in power?
An organization such as NPR that is dependent upon the Gov and special interests for its survival is not a news organization. It is an appendage of those that fund its survival. Receiving money from the Gov and a free press are mutually exclusive.
Where is National Public Radio, in my 72 years i’ve never encountered it!
As long as NPR keeps spewing the Marxism you can count on Comrade Soros to keep paying for it.
there is a liberal down the street, he denies he is, but we are sure that he gets checks from soros, that is the only way he can afford that boat.
since he got that boat, several people in the neighborhood have complained of stolen mail and Earl Madigan says his garbage is frequently stolen as well.
If only there was a moment over the last 14 years that the GOP controlled the House and Senate, I am sure they would have voted to defund NPR.
Including your effing Romney attack ad CRAP in a George Soros forum takes attention away from the serious danger that Soros poses to the world.
You are a total failure and loser as an advocate to put this CRAP in the thread.
You don’t give a damn about the issue posed. You just want to trash Mitt, whom I no longer support for national office. I have to say that I support you less.
As a boy, George Soros was a Jew who collaborated with the Nazis. Think about that! What kind of vile scum do you have to be in order to sell out your own people and condemn them to genocide? That is George Soros. Now he funds anti-American and anti-Israel efforts worldwide, with money he stole from Hungarian Jews who were killed in WWII. Our Muslim president has a soul mate in George Soros. There is a special place in hell waiting for him.
I don’t quite understand your post.
How is it legal that Soros is allowed to fund so many anti-American things?
Has anyone really ever looked into this?
And my neighbor’s third cousin, Fred says that Soros implanted a chip in his brain causing him to bark at the new moon.
Living well is its own reward. Even if you've missed NPR, you've not really missed anything.
In 2003, Roy Kroc's widow Joan willed NPR $200 million.
—————Even if you’ve missed NPR, you’ve not really missed anything.-—————
As someone who listens to NPR to get the daily liberal talking points, I can attest to the validity of this statement.
Is(or was) Joan Kroc a leftist?
>>>Including your effing Romney attack ad CRAP in a George Soros forum takes attention away from the serious danger that Soros poses to the world.
The Op is innocent on the Romney attack ad. That is put there by the management and sort of bleeds over. It spams EVERY thread.
I agree it’s dumb. The dems will attack any republican who gets traction. We don’t need to do it for them. Taking the same energy to build up good candidates would be too sensible though. And what fun is it if you can’t go around calling someone “evil”.
