  • George Soros: Media Mogul (Lefty Businessman Spends Millions Funding Journalism)

    Media Research Center ^ | August 15, 2011 | Dan Gainor and Iris Somberg
    On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on ''media reform.'' She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists. The 2,500-person event was sponsored by a group called Free Press, one of more than 180 different media-related organizations that receives money from liberal billionaire George Soros. Soros, who first made a name for himself in investing and currency trading, now makes his name in politics and policy. Since the 2004 election, the controversial financier has used his influence and billions to push a laundry list...

    The coordinated leftist attempt to destroy the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) over ALEC’s support for voter ID and “stand your ground” laws reached a new low today when Walmart, the biggest retailer in America, suspended its membership in the group. Liberal groups like Media Matters for America and its close associate, the Van Jones-run Color of Change, working in coordination with friends of the Obama Administration, launched secondary boycotts against members in ALEC this year; several major ALEC sponsors have already dropped out, prompting ALEC to announce in April that it was no longer going to focus on “public...

    ATLANTA, Georgia, May 23, 2012 (IPS) - A coalition of advocacy groups is targeting corporate support for the right-wing Heartland Institute after the organisation took out a controversial billboard in Chicago comparing people who believe in global warming to a serial killer and mass murderer. On Tuesday, the group protested outside the Heartland Institute's Seventh International Conference on Climate Change, a conference for climate change deniers being held at the Hilton hotel in Chicago. Heartland's billboard featured a photograph of Ted Kaczinski, the mass murderer known as the Unabomber, with text, "I still believe in Global Warming. Do you?" Heartland...

    Coca Cola executives who recently decided to stop supporting the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) did so in response to demands from an obscure left-wing activist group, Color of Change (COC). So were executives of giant candy-maker Mars, Inc. when they announced a similar decision earlier today. That is why Color of Change may be the most powerful group in America you've never heard about.

    I’ve sat by and watched progressives attack our liberties, our Constitution and our way of life for long enough. No more. For too long, conservatives have been content to sit on what we call the high ground while the Left racks up small victory after small victory until all we have left is the high ground under our butts. Enough. They go after Rush Limbaugh, and conservatives say, “This is an outrage,” but do nothing. The most extreme, racist left-wing groups contact advertisers and sponsors and pressure them to abandon shows and networks that made them. And too often –...
  • As Trayvon Martin riots loom, the STORM manifesto displays relevance

    04/07/2012 10:39:55 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 33 replies
    I was listening to a local talk show discussing Trayvon Martin and how potential riots are coming, and one of the comments of a caller hit me: Rodney King. We're dealing with revolutionaries here - there are no coincidences. So I whipped out my trusty copy of the Reclaiming Revolution manifesto and flipped a few pages. Right there on page 5,(or section 2 1:50) is where it mentions how Roots Against War(RAW - STORM's predecessor) helped organize the protests behind the Rodney King riots. As I made note of not too long ago, Van Jones is a self-described communist.(And the...

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - An African-American political advocacy group is targeting "Celebrity Apprentice" star Donald Trump in the aftermath of what many feel are racially tinged political comments made about President Obama. On Thursday, the organization ColorOfChange launched a Twitter-based campaign to persuade black "Celebrity Apprentice" cast members Star Jones and Lil Jon to denounce Trump for what the group terms "race-baiting." Trump has made headlines in recent weeks by repeatedly questioning whether Obama was born in the U.S. Obama released his longform birth certificate April 27 with the hope of settling the matter, but the issue has been...

    ...Rucker, whose group has four staff members, remains relatively unknown, and Color of Change tends to take on issues that are more controversial than traditional civil rights groups. (Rucker's group was co-founded by former Obama administration official Van Jones. Jones is no longer affiliated with the group.) "Everyone knows about the NAACP," Rucker said. "There is a great power in that. At the same time, there are challenges as we enter into a digital age. There are a lot of dynamics that organizations have to keep up with or you can't be as effective. I'm not going to wait for...

    Topping the internet’s most popular news aggregators today is the no-strings-attached offer by grassroots, web-based organization ColorOfChange.org to provide anyone who wants one a “Turn Off FOX” sticker, free of charge (yes, even shipping). And who isn’t a fan of free things? Or simple bumper sticker activism for that matter. And while, most casual liberals may see this as a random grassroots giveaway, but it’s actually a part of Color of Change’s long struggle against FOX News. Color of Change first seriously battled the network last summer, when they lead the charge of getting advertisers to drop Glenn Beck after...

Media Matters joined: "By airing Stossel's repugnant comments, Fox legitimizes his indefensible position." What "indefensible" position did I take? I said this: "Private businesses ought to get to discriminate. I won't ever go to a place that's racist, and I will tell everybody else not to, and I'll speak against them. But it should be their right to be racist."...

    The Democrat-media complex has been pushing the idea that patriotic nonviolent resistance and opposition to ObamaCare and President Obama’s drive to turn America into a full-blown socialist state somehow constitutes “hate.” Leftists keep trying to invent new incidents supposedly showing how their political adversaries in the Tea Party movement are sinister racists. They claim –in the absence of proof– that black Democratic lawmakers were called the N-word as they walked to the U.S. Capitol building to vote on ObamaCare. They claim –in the absence of proof– that an anti-gay epithet was hurled at Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), an openly gay...

    This is a victory for Glenn Beck, for conservatives, and for America. But this means that the Obama administration has yet one more reason to play dirty.

That is why the White House went after him as the "head of the Republican Party".

    The resignation Sunday of Van Jones, White House environmental jobs "czar," is as much a cable TV story as it is a Washington political one. Jones, who was appointed by President Barack Obama to a high level position as a special adviser on "green jobs" and the environment, has been exposed in recent weeks for using coarse and reckless language in public meetings and signing a petitition that suggested members of former President George W. Bush's administration might have known about the 9/11 attacks in advance and still allowed them to happen. The media entity that first brought much of...

    As anyone who listens to or watches the Glenn Beck radio and television show can attest, Glenn Beck says what he thinks. The constitutional watchdog, talk show host, and entertainer is a firm believer in the American people, our Republic and the principles on which our country was founded. About two weeks ago, in an impassioned statement designed to educate Americans about influences that may have shaped current healthcare reform legislation, the broadcaster connected the dots to make a bigger picture. His argument is if not strong, at least worth serious consideration and thought. Spurred by two proposed offices of...

    The particularly unsavory left-wing pressure group Color of Change has an axe to grind with Glenn Beck — and it’s personal. The extremist racial grievance group isn’t happy that Beck did several news packages on Van Jones, President Obama’s controversial green jobs czar who describes himself as a communist. (Green really is the new red.) Jones is a founding board member of Color of Change, but Color of Change doesn’t want you to know that. Maybe having an avowed America-hating radical on the group’s board is bad public relations. The group deleted references to Jones on its “about” page. That...

On July 28th, Beck made a comment on the Fox & Friends morning show about Obama’s reaction to the arrest of Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr. During the discussion of “Professor-Gate,” Beck connected the President’s past association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright to Obama’s comment that Cambridge police officer, Sgt. James Crowley, acted stupidly. Though Beck acknowledged most
