MRC President Brent Bozell announced new MRC Business investigative research exposing the extent of liberal billionaire George Soros' influence over the global media. He also slammed the liberal media for largely ignoring Twitter owner Elon Musk's document dump that revealed internal communications on Twitter's effort to squash the Hunter Biden laptop scandal.
Fox News anchor Trace Gallagher “praise[d] the work” that MRC Business did for “breaking the story about George Soros having his fingerprints on literally media organizations around the world.”
Bozell reported during the Dec. 6 edition of Fox News at Night that the MRC uncovered “253 organizations — media organizations — worldwide” connected to Soros via his enormous funding operation at Open Society Foundations. “When you look at the Poynter Institute — a big fact-checker — it’s funded by George Soros. How many people know that when you go on Google, and you look up something, immediately you get Wikipedia — funded by George Soros.”
Bozell didn’t pull any punches on what it means for a radical billionaire like Soros to hold such sway over the flow of information: “He hates the Judeo-Christian tradition. He is out to destroy the underpinnings of Western civilization and he’s using $36 billion that he is spending on it.” He concluded: “This is a dangerous man.”
Gallagher asked Bozell what he thought was Soros’ overall goal in creating a media empire for himself in addition to his other ventures like financing radical left-wing prosecutors overseeing spiking crime rates. “George Soros was asked that question,” said Bozell.
“His answer to me is chilling. It chills me to the bone.” Bozell pointed to Soros’ 2019 statement to The New York Times that he was “actively engaged” in “bending” the “arc of history” in “the right direction.” “That’s how ambitious this man is,” Bozell stated.
Earlier in the segment, Gallagher pointed to a Fox News analysis that discovered that between Dec. 2 - Dec. 4 ABC, CBS and NBC broadcast networks spent zero minutes covering Musk’s release of damning documents exposing Twitter’s nefarious censorship operations and its connections to the Democratic Party.
Bozell called the media’s silence on Twitter’s far-reaching censorship of the New York Post Hunter Biden laptop scandal story “censorship of censorship” and he lambasted the networks for ignoring the elephant in the newsroom. “This is a massive story. But look what’s happened Trace. You cannot say the news media are not the arm of Joe Biden’s administration when they’ve just decided — this comes out, this huge story comes and nothing!”
Journalist Matt Taibbi, who first reported on the Twitter documents Dec. 2, stated that the files revealed how Twitter staff and executives over time found “more and more uses” for censorship tools.
Specifically, per Taibbi, “Outsiders began petitioning the company to manipulate speech as well: first a little, then more often, then constantly.” In one snapshot dated Oct. 24, 2020, Taibbi stated that “[b]y 2020, requests from connected actors to delete tweets were routine. One executive would write to another: ‘More to review from the Biden team.’ The reply would come back: ‘Handled.’”
The decision to censor the laptop scandal story reportedly went to the highest levels of Twitter leadership albeit without the knowledge of former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
However, former Twitter legal executive Vijaya Gadde and former Twitter head of trust and safety Yoel Roth were both involved in the decision to censor the story. The policy basis for the censorship reportedly didn’t hold weight as a serious decision.
