Watchdog.org's Tori Richards found that while leftist Center for Media and Democracy in Wisconsin is funded by third and fourth Liberal sources, they're devoting energy and resources to find similar funding conservative media sources - a distraction from their own secrets.
A Watchdog.org review of financial documents reveals the Madison-based CMD, which bills itself as a journalism organization, received $520,000 in 2011 from the Schwab Charitable Fund. That’s 60 percent of the $864,740 CMD received that year.
CMD lists no donors on its tax returns, but its website identifies numerous financial backers without any financial data. Several are highlighted in bold and labeled “current donors.” But one important name is missing: Schwab.
There's more HERE. In addition, Richards found funds being sent to CMD from the George Soros-backed Tides Foundation.
Earlier this year, an investigation by Watchdog revealed that top Tides officials logged 92 White House visits in 2012 and helped draft President Obama’s massive stimulus bill. Tides doled out $505,000 to the nonprofit group Catalist to create a voter database, which is sold to liberal clients engaged in partisan election campaigns.
