The Media Research Center’s Dan Gainor has been digging up the dirt on the deep-pocketed lefty media mogul George Soros’ funding of media operations, and Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly invited him on to discuss Gainor's latest piece in which he says there are ‘nearly 30 Soros-funded media operations that are part of the ‘War on Fox’.”

O’Reilly asked Gainor’s opinion on the most important media operation that Soros funds. “I would say that’s probably Think Progress,” Gainor told O’Reilly. “It’s part of the Center for American Progress. It is, the Center for American Progress gets more than $7 million from Soros, so we didn’t even count that among our numbers.” O’Reilly interrupted to confirm that CAP is John Podesta’s organization and Gainor confirmed.


Gainor went on to answer O’Reilly’s questions about Soros buying his way into the media, specifically by funding Media Matters for America. “Now Media Matters is a big one, they get Soros money from a bunch of ya know, a roundabout way, correct?” O’Reilly asked Gainor. “Yeah they, Media Matters gets actually not even from a roundabout way, now they get it directly. Same with Free Press, this group that he funds. That one of their jobs, is out there to try to get government funding for the media. So, you know, Free Press is out there trying to get 35billion dollars in government funding for the media. When that happens, if that ever can miraculously happen, do you think it would go to Fox News or any conservative outlet? No, it would go to the NPRs and the Alternets of the world.
