The Bizarre Media Blackout Of Hacked George Soros Documents

george_sorosLeaked documents released a few days ago provide juicy insider details of how a fabulously rich businessman has been using his money to influence elections in Europe, underwrite an extremist group, target U.S. citizens who disagreed with him, dictate foreign policy, and try to sway a Supreme Court ruling, among other things. Pretty compelling stuff, right?

Not if it involves leftist billionaire George Soros. In this case, the mainstream press couldn’t care less.

On Saturday, a group called DC Leaks posted more than 2,500 documents going back to 2008 that it pilfered from Soros’ Open Society Foundations’ servers. Since then, the mainstream media have shown zero interest in this gold mine of information.

We couldn’t find a single story on the New York Times, CNN, Washington Post, CBS News or other major news sites that even noted the existence of these leaked documents, let alone reported on what’s in them.

Indeed, the only news organization that appears to be diligently sifting through all the documents is the conservative Daily Caller, which as a result has filed a series of eye-opening reports.

So what could possibly explain the mainstream media’s disinterest?

Is the problem that the material is too boring or inconsequential? Hardly.

As we noted in this space on Monday, the leaked documents show how Soros’ far-flung international organizations attempted to manipulate Europe’s 2014 elections. The “List of European Elections 2014 Projects” details over 90 Soros efforts he had under way that year.

The documents reveal that Soros has poured nearly $4 million into anti-Israel groups, with a goal of “challenging Israel’s racist and anti-democratic policies.”

Here at home, they show that Soros proposed paying the Center for American Politics $200,000 to conduct a smear campaign against conservative activists.

More recently, an October 2015 document came to light showing that Soros’ Open Society U.S. Programs had donated $650,000 to “invest in technical assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement.” Since then, several BLM protests have turned violent.

Another details how Soros tried to use his clout to sway Supreme Court justices into approving President Obama’s unilateral effort to rewrite immigration law. “Grantees are seeking to influence the Justices (primarily via a sophisticated amicus briefs and media strategy) in hopes of securing a favorable ruling in U.S. v Texas,” the memo, dug up by the Daily Caller, states.

Anyone with this much power and influence demands close media scrutiny. Particularly when he has extremely close ties to the would-be next president of the United States.

This year alone, Soros has given $7 million to the Clinton-supporting Priorities USA super-PAC, and a total of $25 million to support Democrats and their causes, according to Politico.

    Leftist corruption led by billionaires like Tom Steyer and George Soros is now EPIC, but the MSM considers it totally benign and non-news-worthy. After all, only Republicans are billionaires … right?

    Everyone knows that the Koch brothers are filthy Satan’s spawn because they openly support conservative causes with their own money. Yet the dollars spent by Steyer and Soros absolutely eclipse the Kochs, and still most people have never even heard of these leftist’s names. In contrast, the Steyer/Soros connection is backhanded, shady, and corruptly manipulative with much of their special self-enriching influence spending but somehow the media can’t even bother a yawn.

    Lovely.

      Only Republicans are billionaires? No. The point is: Republicans are EVIL billionaires out to destroy the world, and Democrat billionaires are noble, pure and good saviors of society.

    How come such a monster is still alive now ? Why hasn’t he been already assassinated by whichever country he has been scheming to destroy ?

    Hedge fund gamblers who strike it rich do so by screwing someone . Maybe they are just other gamblers in which case who cares . However , when you hear hedge fund $billionaires claiming to be all green after making money gambling on fossil fuel futures and other commodities hang on to your wallet .
    Who made a fortune on silver ,who made a fortune on coal , that’s right the same pretentious gamblers who are promoting green wash and buying the White House .

      They have a war on drugs, but if you’re blow it in a casino, what difference does it make? At least with drugs ya get something out of it. Not that it is a good thing, but alchol is legal and they sell it in casinos, and they say it impares your judgement while driving, well imagine what it does in a casino, and how many people with impaired judgement lost more than they could afford! But hey it’s about the message that certain people can get away with, and others are crucified over!
