Soros Increases Control of Fox News

After getting rid of Glenn Beck and hiring feminists Sally Kohn and Jehmu Greene, Fox News has taken yet another turn to the left – hiring Jesse Jackson’s daughter as a commentator. As we have reported at www.sorosfiles.com, Soros forced the ouster of Beck, while Sally Kohn used to work at the Soros-funded Center for Community Change. Both Kohn and Greene are graduates of the Jane Fonda-founded Women’s Media Center.

Paul Bedard broke the story at the Washington Examiner on April 4 in his “Secrets” column:

Secrets hears that Fox News Channel has hired Jesse Jackson’s eldest daughter, Chicago radio host Santita Jackson, as an on-air contributor. The coup is just the latest move by Fox to staff up talkers from the left and build its rep as the nation’s “fair and balanced” cable network. [NOTE: THIS IS BECAUSE OF PRESSURE FROM SOROS-FUNDED GROUPS]

She will debut Friday at 7:15 a.m. on a Fox & Friends political panel.

Along with Al Sharpton, Jackson is one of the leading personalities on Chicago’s WVON, which describes itself this way: “From 1963 to the present, WVON has gone from being ‘The Voice of the Negro’ to ‘The Voice of the Nation.’ We provide an interactive forum for the African-American community to discuss current, social, economic, and political issues. WVON is ‘The Talk of Chicago,’ where we are always giving you something to talk about.”

Don Irvine reports at www.aim.org:

Jackson will join a growing legion of left-wingers at Fox that includes Jehmu Greene and Sally Kohn. Greene is the former president of the Women’s Media Center, which was founded by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem, and Kohn is a former senior strategist for the Soros-funded Center for Community Change.

Fox’s moves to beef up its liberal lineup continue to confound conservatives who see no need for the top-rated cable news network to give liberals even more of a voice than they currently have. They already have MSNBC and CNN, along with the rest of the mainstream media.

If this hiring trend continues, Fox runs the risk of alienating its conservative audience to the point that they will look elsewhere for their news, and eventually end Fox’s long run as the top cable news network.
