Tracking Left wing funding of NPR

Posted on 01/02/2010 5:41:39 PM PST by Halfmanhalfamazing

As you start to read all this, you'll laugh at how incestuous it all gets. Let's start with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which as I've noted in the past is tied in with the Soros foundation. Together, the two worked on something called The Project on Death in America.(PDIA)

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2341083/posts

And speaking of Mr Soros, he himself(his foundations) have given directly to NPR. Compared to some of the other numbers I'm seeing, it's a small amount of $250,000. But it doesn't matter. Soros money is soros money in my book.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2396058/posts

Additional information about RWJF can be found here.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2419729/posts

According to RWJF themselves, they've given well over 9 million dollars to NPR. And that's just a quick google search.

http://www.rwjf.org/reports/grr/024065.htm

http://www.rwjf.org/pr/product.jsp?id=16918

How about the Ford Foundation? Who is known for funding ACORN.

http://www.centerforinvestigativereporting.org/blogpost/20081015acorn039smoneytreehasmanybranches

http://biggovernment.com/tag/ford-foundation/

http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2009/10/beleaguered_acorn_losing_found.html

According to Al Gore's news site, Ford has given NPR(and PBS) at least 50 million dollars. Sourcewatch has another 3 mil given.

http://www.current.org/funding/funding0509ford.shtml

http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=National_Public_Radio

Other groups(in the same links above regarding the Ford foundation) known for funding ACORN, who also fund NPR are:

The Annie E Casey Foundation

Bank of America

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

Here's a good one. The David Geffen Foundation gives grants to NPR. Sweetness and Light has a great posting regarding some of the anti-US foundations out there, and you'll find the Geffen Foundation there.

http://sweetness-light.com/archive/taxpayer-supported-america-hating-501c3-charities

Take note how the Geffen Foundation funds CREW. For those who don't know or have forgotten, CREW or Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington is a soros funded outfit. Funny how this all comes full circle from the beginning, no?

In any case, that list shines light upon several foundations of which you'll see the Wallace Global Fund. Another NPR funding entity.

NPR gets funds from the Melville Charitable Trust. The Trust's executive director - Robert(Bob) Hohler is an Obama and Moveon.org contributor.

http://www.melvilletrust.org/about_us/who_we_are.aspx

http://www.campaignmoney.com/political/contributions/bob-hohler.asp?cycle=08

You have the John S / James L Knight foundation as an NPR supporter. Knightfound claims to be a supporter of quality journalism, but then they also support the Huffington Post.

http://www.knightfoundation.org/news/press_room/knight_press_releases/detail.dot?id=354905

The John and Catherine MacArthur Foundation, has in the past given money to La Raza types.

http://romanticpoet.wordpress.com/2009/10/02/progressive-coalition-comes-out-for-acorn/

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2343481/posts

The William T Grant Foundation is another NPR supporting foundation. Amongst it's board members is Robert Granger who hails from the MDRC.

http://www.wtgrantfoundation.org/about_us/board_of_trustees

Why is that important? The MDRC was created by the Ford Foundation; of ACORN funding fame.

http://www.mdrc.org/about_what_is_mdrc.htm

The Carnegie Foundation supports NPR like the MacArthur Foundation. Also like macfound, they support La Raza.(see links above)

The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation is another. They support just about every left wing organization you can think of. Tides, ACLU, Amnesty international, ACORN, NARAL, and of course, NPR.

http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/funderprofile.asp?fndid=5337&category=79

I'm sure many other NPR grant sources have far left wing ties as well. I started out trying to track down specific dollar amounts at the beginning as you can see, but after seeing just how deep this rabbit hole goes, I gave up on that and just pointed out the obviousness of all this. The dollar amounts clearly don't matter. This is a huge cesspool and this is all at the root of a news outlet that does not openly claim it's bias.

What started out as curiousity on my part to see just how much left wing money NPR is getting turned out to be rathole after rathole after rathole of left wing foundations. Good Grief!

I hope that others will pick this up and do more digging. I'll try to add to this later, so be prepared for a ping on this in the future from myself. One of my problems is that I don't follow offshoot groups as much as I should, so I can't uncover all stones.

In the meantime, please email this to your favorite blogger so that they too will do some digging. Email your favorite talk show host and maybe one of their information digging personnel will finish up what I've started here.(as well as write up in a better fashion, I only seek to get this out into the wild here)

We need many eyes here. And we need them now.

This is what we are up against.

You may want to look at federal funding of NPR.

However, federal funding of NPR did not cease even when the GOP controlled Congress from 1993-2007.

The elites use the poor for votes and manipulate the government for their own benefit. Those of us in the middle get the squeeze. Sort of a “soft” totalitarianism.

Occasionally I hear “Nipper”,as I now refer to it, on somebody’s radio. It’s now almost back to back commercials for government bureaucracies and talk shows that increasingly seem like commercials. It’s become a snake eating its own tale— charging another bureaucracy for doing its PR.

As for these foundations: I’ll bet there’s a pretty penny waiting for the lawyer who’s willing to research the terms these foundations originally agreed to when they were founded.

Fight fire with fire.

True and the GOP also gave federal funding to ACORN. All these left-wing groups need to be de-funded. I just get tired of seeing taxes going to leftist organizations whom I don’t support. They have discussions on abortions and guess which way they slant. They have discussions on Christianity and guess which way they slant. They have discussions on candidates for elected office and guess which way they slant.... Are there any tax-payer funded right wing groups?

I’ve thought the same thing. When Tides Foundation, Drummond Pike, created the Tides Center I also wondered how legal it was. One would think it strains the boundaries of our tax laws at the very least.

On May 18, 1992, the birth of the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) was announced to the press, along with prominent mention of its sources of startup funding. United Press International reported that “more than $2 million” would come from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, “more than $5 million” from the Pew Charitable Trusts and the Rockefeller Foundation, and a single five-year, $8 million grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. This latter windfall represented the single largest grant in that foundation’s history (a $13-million-plus grant to CASA in 1998 would later raise the bar even higher).

... “Healthy People 2010” report put out by HHS in 2000. This federal plan sets ten-year targets for a variety of public health goals. Healthy People 2010 explicitly calls for a 9 percent across-the-board cut in alcohol consumption. Its predecessor, “Healthy People 2000,” demanded a cut in consumption by over 24 percent. Not just in underage drinking: the feds want less alcohol consumed, period.

This lines up well with CASA’s examination, in “Teen Tipplers,” of various strategies ostensibly targeted at “reducing underage drinking.” The policy options that CASA chose to explore include (in their own words):

Increase Alcohol Taxes

Restrict the social and commercial availability of alcohol;
Ban alcohol advertising on television;
Limit [the] numbers, locations, and hours of alcohol establishments;
Require prominent warning labels in all alcohol advertising.

...but the strategy in use here is obvious. In addition to recommending policies that specifically target underage drinkers (such as school-based prevention programs and expanded addiction treatment options), CASA is arguing for measures that would effectively limit the options of ADULTS, regardless of how responsibly they drink.[...]http://activistcash.com/organization_overview.cfm/o/318-national-center-on-addiction—substance-abuse

These Foundations funded somthing that was already being addressed w/ $400m. Why did they want to start another one? Probably to supply fraudelent data that would take away our freedoms and dampen Capitalism. Cloward-Piven Strategy. Obama was director of the Joyce Foundation in Chicago, and tried the same fraudulent data thing, only in his case it was to ban guns. It’s all for the common good!

Thanks for your good work. Hope it continues (by you and/or others).

The ONE factoid I know about EVERY liberal with whom I debate or try to inform is that EACH and EVERY ONE listens to NPR! National Propaganda Radio.

My old tagline was, “Defund NPR”.

Stopping federal funding of this Demonrat propaganda/brainwashing outlet MUST be a top priority to all who are running for Congress from the conservative side of things!

If you are a lazy lib, and have never ever gotten a blister or cut on your finger from doing a regular job like brick laying or welding, why not start a charitable foundation like CASA, go find some fat cat Lib start up money grants, and write yourself $75K- 100K a year pay checks. Not big money, but not bad for sucking off somebody elses teet.

It’s alright. As I said myself, what originally started for myself as a target on NPR’s funding revealed a huge rabbit hole for myself(as well as anybody else who sees this) that needs way more investigation. These foundations.

============These Foundations funded somthing that was already being addressed w/ $400m. Why did they want to start another one? Probably to supply fraudelent data that would take away our freedoms and dampen Capitalism. Cloward-Piven Strategy. Obama was director of the Joyce Foundation in Chicago, and tried the same fraudulent data thing, only in his case it was to ban guns. It’s all for the common good!===============

Sounds like a winner to me. It’s the typical bureaucratic entrenchment that leftists routinely do in government. They’re doing it in capitalism using foundations.

While your gut feeling on this is ultimately a gut feeling, I am in agreement with you and I’d bet that if further investigated, that’s exactly what this is/was for. Foundations seem to have become one of the left’s way of bureaucratizing our capitalist society.

Before america can heal all this corruption needs to be weeded out and exposed in the full sunlight.

Any good propaganda is like a good joke. They have to contain elements of the truth(generally, large elements) in order to be believable And you subtlety slip in lines here and there that seemingly come out of nowhere.

Sesame street has long been noted for it’s liberal bias, particularly in it’s treatment of gender and race.(think identity politics - the first black this, the first woman that and so forth)

http://www.google.com/search?q=bias+sesame+street&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

They aren’t just going to come out and say americans are evil. Most of it’s viewers wouldn’t believe that. They have to slowly be painted as homophobes and racists. Greedy SOBs who use too much of the world’s oil and don’t redistribute enough to the poor.

I posted this just the other day:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2419228/posts

Listen to the audio. Notice how this journalist gets in a line about cali’s welfare and the promised land as if it’s no big deal. Just slip it in there. I hear regularly on BBC(which gets played early mornings on public radio) radical imams get called conservatives. Every now and then, other MSM outlets slip and do the same thing.

I don’t expect these numbers to be accurate, but here you can access some funding disclosure forms from NPR themselves. You will see most of the names I am listing on one or another of these lists.(at the bottom of the page, PDF forms available from 2001 to 2008)

http://www.npr.org/about/privatesupport.html

There is no way I could get to all of these. But I’ll continue to list a few more of some of the major ones I spot so as to further this premise.

We need to expose these people.

Let’s go for round two. This about sums up all the major ones I know of. First up, the Park Foundation. Known for funding Soros own TV channel.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2419889/posts

Notice the other funders of soros’ tv as well. Macarthur, Hewlett, and Wallace.

Here is more on Park.

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2009/03/institute_for_public_accuracy.html

Again, we see some familiar names of foundations all tied in with the left. Park, Wallace, and the Rockefellers.

Progressive Insurance funds NPR too. Think Peter Lewis - Progressive’s CEO. Known for funding all kinds of left wing stuff.

http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=2003

The Kauffman foundation. Their website is very orwellian: http://www.buildastrongeramerica.com/ They also fund left wing groups:

http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid=6998

Feeding America supports NPR. They belong to another group called nourishtoday. Also in this partnership of nourishtoday is the conagra foundation and La Raza.

http://www.nourishkidstoday.org/understand-the-solution/child-hunger-partnerships.jsp

Doris Duke Foundation supports NPR and is a well known eco-whacko activist group.

http://spectator.org/archives/2009/07/20/governors-two-bark-back

Then you have the Alfred P Sloan Foundation. They work with the Sundance Institute which is a front group for Soros. ( Robert Redford’s place )

http://97.74.65.51/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=16895
http://www.soros.org/newsroom/news/sundance_20090715
http://www.sloan.org/program/18/grantees

The Metlife Foundation. Funding NPR and ACORN.

http://www.publiusforum.com/2009/06/10/acorn-foreclosure-counseling-funding-source/

The Pew Charitable Trusts support NPR.

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/terry-trippany/2008/10/17/abc-news-used-obama-contributor-expert-defense-acorn

David Becker is/was a fellow at People for the american way. That’s who Pew tapped to run the “make voting work” initiative.

The Iraq-Afghanistan Deployment Impact Fund is a very nice sounding group that I’m not able to find much about, except I’m very suspicious of it due to one of it’s major donors, David Gelbaum. You may remember him as the mysterious ACLU donor.

I reassured him that I wasn't going to cut down all the trees and that I was impressed that he understood that plants are a vital part of the CO2 - O2 cycle.

Still, I wonder where he got the fear of cutting trees causes us to not have air? It was a good "conservative teaching moment" as I got to talk to him about renewable resources and we put a couple of logs into the woodstove and heated the room up. :-)
