George Soros Backs Leftist Counter to PragerU with Ties to Socialist Sen. Sanders

November 10th, 2021 11:11 AM

Left-wing billionaire George Soros is reportedly backing a new leftist news outlet that openly advocates on behalf of labor unions.

The New York Times reported that in “a moment of political turmoil, economic change and a pandemic-driven focus on how we work, labor has become a hot news beat.” Specifically, “[t]he new brand of labor journalism runs the gamut from conventional newspaper reporting to outright advocacy.”

The “most ambitious” of the new entrants into this news beat is a video-centric outlet called a More Perfect Union, led in part by socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) former presidential campaign manager and former National Political Director for the ACLU Faiz Shakir. But here’s the kicker: Shakir’s outlet has received “backing from George Soros’s Open Society Foundation,” according to The Times.

The Times illustrated just how far left the video-centric publication is:

On Sunday, More Perfect Union is starting a new stream of videos aimed at providing a left-wing answer to PragerU, a YouTube titan of right-wing ideology. The project, called Classroom (get it?), is aimed at building 'the Op-Ed page, or the argument, for why the values that we hold are right,' Mr. Shakir said. The first video is a punchy, animated case for universal child care.

Here’s More Perfect Union’s “universal child care” video below:



One member of the More Perfect Union editorial team is none other than the anti-Israel activist Max Berger, who once served as Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) “Director for Progressive Partnerships” during her 2020 presidential campaign. Canary Mission reported that Berger “was arrested with fellow IfNotNow (INN ) activists for occupying and refusing to leave the lobby of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations (Conference of Presidents) building in New York City.” 

According to Canary Mission, “Berger has spread hatred of Israel, protested against the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), demonized pro-Israel American Jews and promoted INN- organized ‘Liberation Seders.’” If that wasn’t bad enough, “He has also defended anti-Israel agitators and supported the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement.”

Conservatives are under attack. Contact ABC News (818-460-7477), CBS News (212-975-3247) and NBC News (212- 664-6192) and demand they report on a More Perfect Union’s connections to liberal billionaire George Soros and its other leftist ties.
