The three network news channels have devoted nine times more coverage to the political activities of Charles and David Koch than those of Tom Steyer and George Soros, Fox News reported on Tuesday.
Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor said the discrepancy demonstrates that ABC, CBS and NBC have set ethics aside and joined a liberal crusade to demonize conservative billionaires David and Charles Koch.
ABC, CBS and NBC have entirely ignored big-monied liberal organizations like the Democracy Alliance, which is spending $200 million to to boost liberal candidates and causes. Even on June 23, when Politico reported on a secretive April Democracy Alliance meeting, there was no coverage.
Broadcast journalists have had it in for the Koch brothers. Their contributions, were told, have funded very, very conservative causes, they operate in secrecy and are part of the elite. One ABC story featured representatives from three separate George-Soros-funded organizations to criticize the Kochs. Not one of them was identified as such.
To journalists, only conservative money is ever suspect. Those neutral network types even dug up professional left-wingers like Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert and ultra-liberal Chris Matthews, of MSNBC, to whine about conservative money
Blame hairt reidiculous.
What did Soros ever do to make people dislike him?
After all, just because you’re unapologetic for being a Nazi collaborator as a child, a wrecker of national economies while getting rich off of them, and being a convicted inside trader, what did Soros ever do to give him a bad name?
Obama’s biggest financial backer is Leo Blavatnik, who always manages to escape the discussion.
