Kudos to Media Research Center V.P. Dan Gainor for revealing a troubling media blackout surrounding socialist gazillioniare and media manipulator George Soros' plan to undermine American capitalism. From Mr. Gainor's article entitled "Unreported Soros Event Aims to Remake Entire Global Economy
Two years ago, George Soros said he wanted to reorganize the entire global economic system. In two short weeks, he is going to start - and no one seems to have noticed.
On April 8, a group he's funded with $50 million is holding a major economic conference and Soros's goal for such an event is to "establish new international rules" and "reform the currency system." It's all according to a plan laid out in a Nov. 4, 2009, Soros op-ed calling for "a grand bargain that rearranges the entire financial order."
The event is bringing together "more than 200 academic, business and government policy thought leaders' to repeat the famed 1944 Bretton Woods gathering that helped create the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Soros wants a new 'multilateral system," or an economic system where America isn't so dominant.
More than two-thirds of the slated speakers have direct ties to Soros....
Thus far, this global gathering has generated less publicity than a spelling bee. And that's with at least four journalists on the speakers list, including a managing editor for the Financial Times and editors for both Reuters and The Times. Given Soros's warnings of what might happen without an agreement, this should be a big deal. But it's not. (emphasis added)
This story isn't just buried by the left -- it's blacked out. Only conservative news sources are reporting it. Why?
No doubt the MBM will point to the glut of news stories in the last two weeks as reason enough for its failure to note Soros' meeting. What we lowly bloggers in the New Media just don't appreciate is that Real News Editors have to pick and choose which stories rate headlines and the decisions can be grueling.
I mean the vast left-wing media cannot be expected to cover devastation in Japan, a declaration of non-war against Libya by an unwilling coalition led by the proverbial leader of the free world, a guy who can't even get into his own office at the White House, and the three ring circus that is Charlie Sheen's latest "winning" moment with CBS! So much news so little time.
Besides, international finance is sooooooo boring! No radiation contamination. No orphaned children. No bullets or air strikes on tanks. Not even a porn star in the vicinity. Nothing to see here.
The media mea culpa might have worked last week before the release of shocking secret audio tapes revealing former SEIU official Stephen Lerner's
plan to organize strikes against banks (as reported in the Blaze, a Glenn Beck conservative blog
), a plan to urge regular Americans to withhold money contractually owed banks in an effort to financially strangle banks long enough .... so that a new redistribution of wealth can occur.
But wait! Isn't that what George Soros' New World Order event is all about?
Revelation of Lerner's audio coupled with Mr. Gainor's piece puts the lie to any mea culpa of plausible ignorance in the Make-Believe Media. Worse these revelations suggest an orchestrated media conspiracy to shape public knowledge and perception about George Soros' plan, to keep it secret until Lerner, and the speakers at Soros' event
can meet without media attention.
Propoganda by any other name would smell as fishy.
