Soros Donates $18B to Own Foundation, But WaPo Missed a Major Point

News broke this week that liberal financial backer George Soros, who ‘broke’ the Bank of England by betting against the English pound currency, gave $18 billion to his Open Society Foundation.

However, the Washington Post [1] began its summary by introducing Soros and how his foundation has “given away $14 billion since 1984.” It did not discuss the ethics of Soros’ money-making venture by betting against the Bank of England nor which causes Soros donated to.

It took 13 paragraphs for the Washington Post to point out that Soros donates to liberal and progressive causes, ranging from Barack Obama’s political campaigns, Hillary Clinton’s campaigns, and did not name the various anti-George W. Bush and anti-Trump non-profits that he donated to.
