Topic: Media Research Center
Fresh off his sloppily written attack on George Soros and Columbia University, the Media Research Center's Mike Ciandella is back a new bit of Soros-bashing, this time going after the nonprofit news website ProPublica. Ciandella huffs that "ProPublica is a liberal investigative journalism outfit that has received $300,000 from George Soros’ Open Society Foundations since 2000."But later on, Ciandella writes that "ProPublica began operations in 2008 with funding from the liberal Sandler Foundation."
How could ProPublica have been receiving money from Soros "since 2000" when it didn't exist until 2008? Ciandella doesn't explain. Perhaps he's so desperate to attack Soros that the truth doesn't matter to him.
Needless to say, Ciandella makes no mention of the fact that Soros' contributions to ProPublican pale in comparision to the millions of dollars each year that prop up such right-wing media outlets like the Washington Times and Pittsburgh Tribune-Rreview.
