Hey Mr Soros...

The right wingers have been falsely claiming that he has been funding just about every liberal organization in the book for what seems like forever. It's finally coming true for one of them and is much deserved. Just announced today, Soros gave Media Matters a cool million. Apparently he was particularly impressed with their pushback against Fox "News" and their resident liars.

No doubt the usual suspects on the far right will now be crowing about how liberals take billionaire bucks too, and thus can never criticize their secret funders again, but of course the difference is obvious.
“We are especially pleased that in this moment of hidden right-wing billionaire money corrupting our democracy, Mr. Soros, upon deciding to support our efforts, quickly and transparently has made that support public,” the statement from Media Matters says.
Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for that check that my critics claim he's sending to me...

[Nice. Thanks to The Caucus for the Around the Web link.]

If Soros were supporting even a small portion of the liberal causes he's accused of, he'd really be richer than God.

The difference is obvious? Don't count on it. I'm afraid we'll be treated to exactly what you said they'd do: give us another damned false equivalence.

Never understood the fixation on Soros. Most of the stuff he underwrites, like drug legalization and prison reform, isn't even political in the partisan sense.

Fogg, I'm sure the cons will just spin this in their confused minds as proof they were justified in their hate all along.

If we can now be famous for being famous, we can be hated for being hated. He's a rich man who doesn't support their jihad or their feudal law and that alone is sufficient.
