Recently, Gateway Pundit published an article that exposed how Media Matters, along with other top leftist groups were working with Facebook and Twitter to eliminate conservative content from their giant social media platforms.
In January 2017 after Hillary Clinton was shellacked in the November 2016 election top Democrat operatives at Media Matters, Share Blue, American Bridge, and CREW came together and released their two-year plan to take back power in Washington DC.
The Washington Free Beacon obtained a copy of an interesting document from a retreat that took place in Davos in January of 2018.
The 49-page memo outlined how the George Soros-funded groups Media Matters, American Bridge, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and Shareblue planned to undermine President Trump’s agenda and help Democrats win control of Congress and the White House by 2020.
Here is a portion of that document:
The document then claims that Media Matters and far left groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”
According to their report, these far-left groups have been working with Facebook and Twitter to eliminate conservative content.
Via The Daily Wire:
“The earlier we can identify a fake news story, the more effectively we can quash it,” the memo states. “With this new technology at our fingertips, researchers monitoring news in real time will be able to identify the origins of a lie with mathematical precision, creating an early warning system for fake news and disinformation.”
The memo went on to state that Media Matters had a discussion with Facebook on how to crack down on fake news, including Media Matters providing the social media giant with “a detailed map of the constellation of right-wing Facebook pages that had been the biggest purveyors of fake news.” The memo also bragged that Media Matters provided Google with “the information necessary to identify 40 of the worst fake new sites” that would be prevented from using Google’s advertising network.
And this is exactly what happened.
Now, it’s being reported by the Washington Free Beacon, that George Soros is drastically increasing his shares in a handful of tech companies after previously bashing such companies as a “menace” and while a coalition of progressive groups he financially backs pushes a campaign that includes a goal of breaking up Facebook.
Soros made the large stock purchases during the second quarter through Soros Fund Management, the financier’s New York City-based investment firm. The purchases include 159,200 shares in Facebook (valued at $31 million), 250,000 shares in Twitter (valued at $11 million), and 54,500 shares in Apple (valued at $10 million), Security and Exchange Commission filings show.
Soros did not have holdings in any of those companies during the first quarter, according to the fund’s previous filings.
Soros made the big bets on tech after lambasting such companies as being a “menace” and “monopolistic” earlier this year at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
The organization didn’t provide details of their current conversations. A spokesman said that it provided a $180,000 two-year grant to the Open Markets Institute last fall for work around web platforms.
- The organization’s interest in platforms has been building for some time. It gave the group Data & Society $250,000 in 2016 for “reimagining pathways for algorithmic accountability of platforms and organizations that produce and distribute content, such as search and recommendation engines and social media.”
So, why is Soros buying up so much of the “monopolistic” tech companies stock if he views them as a “menace”? Does his decision to purchase massive amounts of their stock have anything to do with Media Matters plan to work with Facebook and Twitter to elimintate conservative news content?
