It has been revealed that George Soros' money may be behind the recent controversial government study of newsrooms.
The study, ordered by the Federal Communications Commission, sought insight on how journalists and management determined a station’s news coverage. The study was highly criticized as a government attempt to regulate how newsrooms operate, and the FCC quietly killed the project in late February.
The Washington Examiner’s Byron York said on “Fox and Friends” Wednesday that the journalism schools involved with the FCC’s study were both recipients of large sums from the liberal Soros. Soros’ organization Open Societies Foundation gave $1.4 million to the University of Wisconsin’s journalism school, and $195,000 to journalism school at the University of Southern California.
