In Which “left-wing think tanks are nonpartisan watchdogs, but the free-market ones are part of some covert stealth nefarious plot”

24 Aug

That up there is the title to a great post by Matt Welch over at Reason, which you ought to read and absorb.  It’s truly a look under the rock of how the so-called mainstream media treats advocacy groups on the left versus how it characterizes groups on the right.  Lefty groups get the neutral, non-partisan designation nine times out of ten, even if they’re led by open socialists and funded by the likes of Soros (which regardless of whatever state you happen to live in, most lefty groups do catch and carry Soros bucks).  Righty groups are routinely treated as if they carry leprosy with intent to propagate the disease.

And the irony is, it’s the lefty Soros groups that actually are or tend to be part of some covert stealth nefarious plot.  There’s even a newish one that does the non-profit journalism thing that’s gone nationwide calling itself “American Independent News.”  They’re setting up posts in each state under the “Independent”moniker and training up local writers, so in Virginia it’ll be the Virginia Independent, in Texas it’ll be the Texas Independent, and so forth.  By the name and the look of the site, it all sounds very non-partisan and even Tea Partyish.  But it ain’t.   Go have a look at their Donate page and you’ll see the Open Society Institute on the list.

That’s Soros.  Thus, American Independent, and its little offshoot here in Texas, is not independent at all.

    Ah, thanks for the info. I’ll be adding the “American Independent News” site into my “lefties and propaganda” favorites file. That file is really getting long . . .

    Just remember what BO said though, and watch out for that nefarious Americans for Prosperity group . . .

    Isn’t it interesting how the left always has to hide their intentions?
