Jeg har tidligere blogget om Helle Thorning-Schmidts nye job. Her en opfølgning fra Remix, baseret på en undersøgelse foretaget af RealClearInvestigations – 18 out of 20 members on Facebook’s fact-checking board have ties to George Soros.
“Facebook claims its new oversight board, which has the authority to allow or remove content from the platform, is diverse in thought and opinion, but an investigation has determined that 18 out of the 20 members of the board have ties to liberal billionaire George Soros or groups he supports.
Sheryl Attkisson’s investigation for RealClearInvestigations revealed that 18 out of 20 members of the ‘independent’ board ‘collaborated with or are tied to groups that have received funding from George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.”
The Open Society Foundation is perhaps the foremost and most well-funded progressive organization in the world. Soros has donated billions to various left-wing causes for decades, and most recently donated over $200 million to Black Lives Matter and another $50 million to elect former Vice-President Joe Biden in the United States.
… news articles have played up the diversity and global reach of the board, but the revelation that 90 percent of its members have ties to Soros or his organizations appears to bolster complaints from conservatives that they are being censored by Big Tech.
As an example, the RealClearInvestigations report notes that Evelyn Aswad, a U.S. law professor, is a recipient of a grant from a Knight Foundation that has partnered with Open Society Foundations. …
One of the four co-chairs of the board, Columbia University law school professor Jamal Greene, used to be an aide to Senator Kamala Harris. Both Columbia University and Harris have financial ties to the Soros family. On his Twitter, Greene also posted several anti-Trump tweets.
Another co-chair, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, is the former socialist Prime Minister of Denmark, and is a trustee at the International Crisis Group funded by the Open Society Foundation. Moreover, both Soros and his son Alexander are members of the International Crisis Group board.
Other members have received substantial sums of money from the Open Society Foundation.”
