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 Womans 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 Reports official website, the report was produced in partnership with the Center for American Progress. CAP

If they don’t report it, it didn’t happen. Just ask obama.
Who knew? Does anybody watch NBC?
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.
Wow. Reporting on the reporters. Our 1st amendment works.
No the 1st amendment isn’t just for news agencies.
Ergo..."What difference does it make now?"
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.
... 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.
The BEST thing about Soros is his age. How much longer can he cause problems for the world?
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.
Soros orgs recieve millions in federal handouts
Most American news people = Paid Democrat liars
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.
Center for American Progress, Communist Party USA, what’s the difference?
I can’t stand to look at her.
Big business is convinced of long term “progressive” control and is attempting to pay “protection” money.

Soros is hellbent on destroying our nation by any means neceassary. A despicable human being in every sense of the word.
bump to the top
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.
