Soros Funds NPR ( according to NPR around $250,000 )

Posted on 11/28/2009 3:32:10 PM PST by Halfmanhalfamazing

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.

As I typed this, I remembered something I had posted a while back.

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.

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.

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.

coincidence? hardly.

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.

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.

That's nothing.

In 2003, Roy Kroc's widow Joan willed NPR $200 million.

As someone who listens to NPR to get the daily liberal talking points, I can attest to the validity of this statement.

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”.

I’m afraid that Soros isn’t all that unique. Self-hating among Jews is as common as it is common among American liberals. Most American Jews, for instance, might not be as bad as Soros but look at how reliably they vote AGAINST the interests of Israel. It blows my mind that 57 percent of Jews voted for Obamsky, a man who seeks to undercut Israel at every turn. Granted, it’s not like an endorsement of the Nazis but it veers in that direction.

Soros of course is a dyed-in-the-wool Marxist and a self-described “nut.” I don’t mean to lump most garden variety Jewish liberals in with him. But you get my drift.

Maybe we right-wingers should remind our Jewish friends that Barry Goldwater, a giant among conservatives, was Jewish. The Jewish vote might not be very large across the USA but it can be CRITICAL in Florida and in a closely contested NY race.
