Fox News Hires Soros-funded Activist
aim.org ^ | 01/20/2012 | Cliff Kincaid

Posted on 01/20/2012 2:46:41 PM PST by massmike

Sally Kohn, a former senior strategist at the Soros-funded Center for Community Change, has been hired as a Fox News Contributor. Soros is the controversial hedge fund billionaire, convicted of insider trading in France, who finances the “progressive” movement in the U.S.

An open lesbian who shuns feminine attire and frequently wears a suit jacket, Kohn is joining Fox News after being a regular on such programs as “The Ed Show” on liberal rival MSNBC.

The former chair of the board of the Center for Community Change, Cecilia Munoz, was recently named the Director of the Domestic Policy Council in the White House, a position that makes her one of Obama’s top aides. She had been serving as Director of Intergovernmental Affairs. A White House press release about her appointment notes that she previously served on the U.S. Programs Board of the OSI and was Senior Vice President for the Office of Research, Advocacy, and Legislation at the National Council of La Raza.

Kohn has a history of her own, having worked for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), a group that tries to keep criticism of the homosexual agenda out of the mainstream media. Interestingly, GLAAD has relentlessly attacked Fox News, with one of the latest examples being an occasion during which correspondent Shannon Bream interviewed guests critical of a transgendered person, a man dressed as a woman, who had used a woman’s changing room at a department store. GLAAD viewed this criticism as “dangerous.”

Not only is Kohn’s hiring by Fox News a victory for GLAAD, where she worked for two years, but the Soros-funded and gay-run Media Matters organization is extremely happy with the selection.

Fox execs know Sally is repulsive to their audience. Her appearance is calculated. Give the audience a heel to hoot at.

Isn't it bad enough that conservatives have to see and hear leftists on every other news program on TV but now, on Fox, too? Why? Doesn't the left get it's message out? I know Fox News isn't actually conservative but this appointment can't be a good sign. One hope this woman will get little Fox News air time.

WTF is Fox thinking?! She is a mental midget! And FUGLY to boot!

Hell, Alan Colmes is more attractive and more feminine than "Sal". What is it with news networks wanting to have their own bull-dyke Rachel Madcow lookalike?!

This is the formula that made Fox the mega cable news company with rating in the sky for over a decade (NOT)

Seems to me Fox is hiring these blatant liberal freaks to shoe the viewers what complete idiots these liberals are ala Alan Combes and Bob Bechtel.

If that's true (and I tend to agree with you), it's a great move.

I saw the other day on America Live where Megyn Kelly welcomed her to the “Fox Family”. I can’t stand her. They’ve been having her on various segments of shows for the past couple of months and all the eye ball rolling and faces she makes . . . ugh . . . I have to hit the mute button or go do something around the house until the segment is over. She NEVER has a worthwhile argument to listen to. Most of the left they have on I can semi-tolerate but she isn’t one of them . . . almost as bad as Debbie Downer without the permed curly hair-do.

It seems to me that Fox News has pretty much lost its “fair and balanced” mantra. They do nothing these days but hire more liberal freaks.

I figured this would happen after Murdoch died or retired, but it looks like it’s happening right now.

Maybe, but it seems like they're acting like republicans as opposed to conservatives. In a national election when a republican gets in, it's because he had conservative support. Once in office these GOPers feel they need to be more "moderate" to appeal to a broader more sophisticated base (the Manhattan crowd).

What ends up happening is they become RINOs and alienate the conservatives who originally got them into office. Christie Whitman in NJ was a good example of this phenomenon.

Like all mediot outlets, Faux News is slowly being taken over by the libs, who consider the entire TV “news” genre to be their turf. I haven’t watched this now lib-leaning trash of a network in over a year now. Becoming the same as the rest - just not as bad [yet].

Fox News is unwatchable and has been mucking around MainStreamMedia territory for a while now. I haven't seriously watched it for quite some time and tuned in the other day but soon I was laughing at how awesomely bad it was. I couldn't even hold out until the commercial break to switch channels. It's just a crap news reality network to me.

Hannity is nothing but another elitist establishment who never talks about conservative social issues and admitted he is not socially conservative thus making him a libertarian.

You know it’s gotten bad when Steve Doocey is the true conservative. Megan Motormouth Kelly has become unwatchable. And if Hannity talks about his dishwashing days and says the word “rendition” one more time, I’m going to scream. I prefer FBN with Eric Bolling and Lou Dobbs.

They mis-calculated! If I want to watch a progressive, liberal, lesbian I can just as easily watch MSNBC rather than a network that built its brand by setting itself apart from leftist media.

I think this secretely has something to do with the DOJ in the US announcing an inquiry into News Corp after that scandal against Murdoch’s tabloids in the UK.

I’ve given up on FOX except I have friends on some times in the morning when getting ready .

They’;re all liberals when it comes to their cross dressing homosexual pals.
The station has never reported on Jennings, the queer agenda in the schools, etc

They are slightly right of NBC but no where near conservative or even republican

Infact the last couple of years they have took a much hard turn to the left.

Seems they get their reporters from around the country but once these people have lived up in NY for a year or two and have been to their elitist cocktail cross dressing homosexual parties the reporters then turn liberal

nail on head

Hannity is nothing but a fraud,. Doocy appears as a conservative and Kelly was last watched by us here when she brought on the shrink for the sole purpose of attacking him and all because he wrote an article saying children should not be watching cross dressers

Kelly kept bringing on her homo pals, always defended cross dressers and has turned into a flaming big mouth arrogant elitist liberal

something happened.
The left was always trying to stop FOX from airing, they then tried to get people to not watch it with the headline of we watch FOX so you don’t have to and now all of a sudden they are bringing their cross dressing homosexual lot from the left to FOX.

Remember when Beck said that some from the admin went and met with FOX execs and said do not air Beck , don’t report on this and that etc?

Why the hell would they put a media matters cross dressing homosexual on FOX when they already have enough liberals already?

I find myself watching less and less of FOX. Sick of their leftward drift and their use of freaks like this.

We usually DVR Bret and Greta and then watch them later, fast-forwarding the useless parts. The husband also watches FOX and Friends from the DVR, but I stopped watching them about 6 months ago.

I don’t think it has anything to do with any political agenda, it’s that they’ve sewn up the conservative audience and the only way to expand is to move to the left now. As always, the bottom line is the almighty dollar. The only “true believers” in the media seem to be on the left, and considering they locked up the media and academia decades ago, they can afford it.

I was really excited when I was able to buy a satellite
receiver that gets FOX, and NO Commie News Network.
It is my first TV viewing in about eight years.

So far, I am not impressed. I turn on Fox and see that fat boy with suspenders, and the Colmes jerk along with babbling female idiots.
Even the movie channels are depressing with their cartoon
like violence, blowing up everything.
I also notice that the cast is overblown with racial PC, as if blacks make up fifty percent of the population now.
Fortunately, they do have some old movies.

At least History and Natl. Geo have interesting programing.

“I don’t think it has anything to do with any political agenda, it’s that they’ve sewn up the conservative audience and the only way to expand is to move to the left now.”

Bingo. Today Rush was talking about liberals in the media and how they were willing to risk ratings, their careers and even their businesses for the liberal cause.

Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes are just the opposite. Their only goal is to maximize profit and they are following the tried and true RINO tactic of moving as far left as possible without totally losing conservatives. As long as conservatives are dumb enough to act like sheep and keep tuning in to FNC, it will continue moving left.
