A new investigative report from The New York Post reveals how leftist billionaire George Soros is using a network of shady “fact checkers” to control the media narrative.

Matt Palumbo, author of “The Man Behind the Curtain: Inside the Secret Network of George Soros,” reports on how Soros’ pipeline of cash bankrolls a spider’s web of so-called “fact checkers” that media outlets and social media platforms use to suppress and censor information on behalf of the political left.

“Later in the year, heading into the midterms, in an open letter signed by 11 other leftist groups, the Soros-funded Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights called on Big Tech CEOs to take “immediate” action to spread so-called “voting disinformation” to “help prevent the undermining” of democracy. The signatories had received a combined $30.3 million from Soros in just a four-year period,” Palumbo writes.

That was the opening shot in a larger war by Soros to control information, and election outcomes, ahead of the midterms.

“Last year, Soros partnered with fellow leftist billionaire Reid Hoffman (the co-founder of LinkedIn) to financially back a project to fight so-called disinformation. The name they chose might have come from George Orwell himself: Good Information Inc.,” Palumbo reports.

Among those Soros is now funding include “PolitiFact,” a “fact-checking” operation widely used by social media platforms and the mainstream media to attack and suppress information harmful to liberal political agenda.

But despite its title of “fact-checker” data show “PolitiFact” operates as a liberal spin machine.

“One of the more recent studies of bias on PolitiFact found sources six times more likely to defend Biden in their “fact-checks” than check his facts,” Palumbo reports.

In fact, most of Facebook’s “fact-checkers” are funded by Soros, and are little more than liberal propaganda mills.

“As the Hungarian publication Remix revealed, of the 11 Facebook-approved fact-checking organizations for Central and Eastern Europe, eight were funded by Soros. As is the case for the US, these fact-checking groups are largely critical of the political right,” Palumno reports.

In fact, the paid “fact checkers” spread false information to defend Soros himself.

As Palumbo notes in detail:

Those who found themselves Googling George Soros’ name in past months may have seen an ad display among the top of the results from PolitiFact, inviting the searcher to learn the “Truth” about Soros, that “George Soros does not pay protesters. Here’s the truth. The real purpose of the ‘paid protester’ myth.”

Anyone who clicked the ad would be brought to a PolitiFact “fact check” of a claim from pundit Candace Owens that Soros is “funding the chaos” in Minneapolis through his Open Society Foundations during the summer of 2020 riots…

…Emily Venezky predictably rates Owens’ claim “False” while citing a 2015 Snopes fact check that admits Soros donated $33 million to organizations “that have worked with Black Lives Matter or worked to raise awareness during the Ferguson-related protests” in the past. She then tries to hedge that admission when it comes to the then-recent Minneapolis riots with the supposed disclaimer: “However, they had never given money to groups for the express purpose of organizing protests with the movement.”

…In a similar vein, PolitiFact’s Yacob Reyes wrote an article to debunk claims that Soros was funding Black Lives Matter — only to admit and downplay his funding of BLM-adjacent groups. Writing in response to Owens saying that Soros “injected $33 million into Black Lives Matter,” Reyes rated the claim “False” because the groups weren’t official BLM groups — but merely radical far-left groups that share virtually an identical ideology to Black Lives Matter (and everything else Soros funds) and engage in the same kind of disruptive activities.

Facebook and others have not announced plans to drop the Soros-funded “fact checkers.”

Why is this Marxist fossil here? Send him back to the country of origin, or lock him up.

Mr. Soros has been thrown out of a few countries. Why not this country he has destroyed other countries he should not have anything to do here in our United States. The man is a thief and a nasty evil thief who should be deported too anywhere but here. He sees the downfall of our Country and a chance to own our country. When he sees an opportunity that he can control he goes for the jugular.
