A report revealed just this week, shows the 'Open Society Institute' funded Hansen to the tune of $720,000, carefully orchestrating his entire media campaign. OSI, a political group which spent $74 million in 2006 to "shape public policy," is funded by billionaire George Soros, the largest backer of Kerry's 2004 Presidential Campaign. Soros, who once declared that "removing Bush from office was the "central focus" of his life, has also given tens of millions of dollars to MoveOn.Org and other political action groups.This is huge. A leftist billionaire funding a bureaucrat in a Federal Administration to spread propaganda against the Bush Administration.
We received a comment that tells another side of the story.
I'll let the reader draw his/her own conclusions.
Is Hansen a propagandist? Is it wrong for a partisan organization to fund "whistle-blowers" (Is Hansen indeed a whistle-blower?) or wrong to only fund "whistle blowers" that appear to wish to embarrass an elected government? Is Exxon any more evil or partisan that moveon.org?
