I consider this yet more proof you can't trust the Corporate-owned TV media. - "All of the network's owned-and-operated stations will get early access to investigative reports from the nonprofit newsroom Pro Publica. The arrangement comes as Comcast moves to fulfill its commitment to federal regulators to strengthen local, public-interest programming." - ProPublica operates with a bounty of $10 million per year from married billionaires Herbert and Marion Sandler, who are the former chief executives of the Golden West Financial Corporation, formerly one of the largest mortgage lenders.
The Federal Election Commission database shows that they have donated hundreds of thousands to the Democratic Party and funded MoveOn.org to the tune of $2.5 million. They have also been involved with a host of other partisan organisations including ACORN, Media Matters, the Democracy Alliance, and the Center for American Progress (a Washington lobbyist group that has direct and weighty influence on Obama Administration policy).
Globalist stalwart George Soros also has his tentacles in ProPublica, having given $500,000 from Soros’ Open Society Foundations. In a revealing piece for The American Thinker, Ed Lasky comments that the Sandlers and their various organizations “are not merely out to elect Democrats, but to also permanently realign U.S. politics and shift our society and culture in a far-left wing direction.”
