TOP STORY: It seems that George Soros is lurking just about everywhere when it comes to financial news these days. Cliff Kincaid exposes an under-reported fact in the recent MF Global bankruptcy: “A major figure in liberal Democrat Jon Corzine’s bankrupt firm, MF Global, used to work for hedge fund operator and Democratic Party financial patron George Soros. MF Global Holdings Ltd., now under FBI investigation, had hired Munir Javeri as Global Head of Trading.” As Kincaid explains, this is one of the biggest bankruptcies, in terms of assets, in 2011.

NEW VIDEO: After more than a month of protest demands for better employment opportunities and benefits, Accuracy in Media saw fit to test the protesters desires with…employment applications. Our “headhunters” were treated to every excuse as to why these jobs aren’t good enough for them. We guess middle management opportunities with healthcare and 401k benefits aren’t desirable anymore. Watch:

MEDIA WATCH: Occupy DC has taken upon itself to create a media outlet, but they weren’t very creative with the name. Don Irvine reports: “Mimicking the Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York who have produced their own newspaper in the form of The Occupied Wall Street Journal, protesters in Washington, D.C. have now published the first edition of The Occupied Washington Post.” We’ve found that the editorial board isn’t a fan of anyone these days.

RATINGS RACE: MSNBC and CNN continued to fight over who’s not last in the ratings this past month. Don Irvine looks at the numbers: “Even though MSNBC easily beat CNN in the overall audience numbers, the decline in the key A25-54 demo has made MSNBC’s hold on second place more tenuous lately and they can only hope the recent programming changes will be enough to prevent them from falling behind CNN.”

ELECTION 2012: It’s day 3 of what will probably be known as Caingate and the press is lining up on the possibility that his accuser could go public: “Joel P. Bennett, a Washington lawyer who specializes in employment cases, said in media interviews that his client wants the National Restaurant Association to waive confidentiality so she can respond to Cain’s claims that the complaints were ‘totally baseless and totally false’.” Meanwhile, the Cain camp is claiming that they’re raking in cash.

WHAT WE’RE READING: While the media is salivating over the strike in Oakland to hinder commerce, AIM guest columnist Michelle Malkin explains why this will only make things worse for the Bay Area: “A city suffering from chronic poverty, out-of-control crime, a $76 million budget deficit and a 15 percent unemployment rate (nearly 50 percent for Oakland’s youth) can hardly afford such social justice follies. But a pushover Democratic mayor and an overwhelmed police force have left what’s left of gainfully employed Oakland taxpayers at the mercy of professional freeloaders and anti-capitalism saboteurs.” A must read:

TOLD YA SO: We hate to be right about this stuff, but our earlier reports that suggested Congress would push a new tax as a result of slumber party Occupation has come back to life: “With the G20 expected to resume its transaction tax debate this week, Representative Peter DeFazio and Senator Tom Harkin proposed a 0.03 percent tax on stock, bond and derivative trades. It would take effect, if adopted, in 2013.”
