NBC Silent on $7.3 Million from Soros for Special Anchorís Liberal Report
Business and Media Institute ^ | January 16, 2014 | Mike Ciandella

The Center for American Progress partnered with Maria Shriver on lib, NBC promoted report.

Not only did NBC allow their special anchor Maria Shriver to promote her own report on “Nightly News,” they did it without disclosing that it was made in partnership with a group that liberal billionaire George Soros gave $7.3 million to.

In “The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back From the Brink,” which was published on Jan. 11, an outspokenly liberal nun, Sister Joan Chittister, took aim at religious attitudes in America that “devalue” and marginalize women.

Shriver was invited to the White House on Jan. 14 to present her report to President Barack Obama, whom she promoted as being “sympathetic” to working mothers. On NBC “Nightly News” that same night, Shriver contrasted a supportive Obama against a Congress that is supposedly dragging its feet on the matter. "While President Obama has pledged to fix the problem, Congress has been slow to respond," Shriver said.

According to The Shriver Report’s official website, the report was “produced in partnership with the Center for American Progress.” CAP

Guys like Soros are why I’d be afraid to write a new constitution. Too many delegates when offered $10,000,000 would do whatever he asked. If they didn’t that same $10,000,000 could be used to make them into an Arkencide.

George Soros assault on U.S. Constitution - rewriting nation's founding document

At least three White House advisers and officials,including President Obama's regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, have ties to an effort funded by billionaire George Soros to push for a new, "progressive" U.S. Constitution

… Now it has emerged that Sunstein has maintained extensive ties to Soros' funding,particularly with regard to a movement that openly seeks to create a "progressive" consensus as to what the U.S. Constitution should provide for by the year 2020.

Also,Attorney General Eric Holder sat on the board of a Soros-funded group pushing the same "progressive" constitution.

More from 2011 article

... That event was sponsored by Soros' Open Society Institute as well as by the Center for American Progress,which is led by John Podesta,who served as co-chair of Obama's presidential transition team. Podesta's Center is said to be highly influential in helping to craft White House policy.

Only Banana Republic’s and Muslim hell holes re-write their constitution with every frequent change of the govt. Ours is fine..we just need to elect public officials that believe in it. It is obvious that our current President doesn’t believe our constitution and doesn’t think it limits or defines his powers.

What are the "religious attitudes" that hold back women? The Catholic and Orthodox restrictions of female priesthood? That effects practically no one. And what can Congress and Obama do about it? Nothing, so that can't be what they are talking about.

So what else might they be talking about? Muslim attitudes towards women? Can't be that, either - they wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole. So, again, what are these attitudes and how is Obama going to "fix the problem"?

The thing I've recently seen that most devalued women were the Colorado ads supporting Obamacare, depicting women as mindless idiots preoccupied only with casual sex and free birth control - now THAT was demeaning to women.

Wait a minute. Isn’t this the same Obama administration that had the fewest women working in the White House than any in recent memory? I remember the press did a story about it a few years ago but then the subject quickly vanished from the press radar screens.

Yes, pretty despicable. If he was helping lead Jews to the slaughter as well, the Mossad should have taken him out.

She continued saying, “As a result, women make up two-thirds of the hungry of this world. And women are two-thirds of the illiterate of this world. And women are two-thirds of the poorest of the poor, because they lack access to the resources and recognition men take for granted. That’s not an accident. That is a policy—one supported by religious institutions that call such discrimination ‘women’s place’ and “God’s will.’”

And you'll notice, Islam isn't mentioned by Sister Joan, though it is Islam she is describing; it certainly isn't the Catholic Church, though she probably would consider the Catholic Church to be horrible to women. These outspoken nuns tend to rail against the Church for 'holding women down', when their own expensive educations have been paid for by their orders, which are part of the Church. Ironic.
