'Citizen Soros' now targeting messenger

"Soros' donation to Media Matters suggests that intimidating journalists who dare to question his vision is now a top priority," the report said. "Come down on the wrong side of an issue and risk being labeled ignorant or evil by the smear website."

It was Soros himself who recently proclaimed himself a supporter of Media Matters as it works to "widely publicize" evidence regarding the challenge "Fox News poses to civil and informed discourse."
The report goes on to tell how David Brock of Media Matters is attacking Glenn Beck:
"'In recent months, Fox has allowed Glenn Beck's show to become an out-of-control vehicle for the potential incitement of domestic terrorism,' he said. 'George Soros, a philanthropist of the highest integrity, unfortunately knows first-hand what it's like to be grotesquely caricatured and flatly lied about on Fox. Media Matters is grateful that he has decided to lend his voice,'" the report cited him saying.

For someone who once described himself as "some kind of god" and said that makes him feel comfortable, the scrutiny of a new report that looks into his increasing influence over the messengers in today's world probably won't have a personal impact.

But whether it affects him or not, octogenarian billionaire George Soros' funding of a media "monitor" that routinely attacks traditional and conservative media is becoming a focal point.

The report by Matthew Vadum, editor of Organization Trends, is scheduled to be released by the Capital Research Center in January.

"Like the protagonist in the classic Orson Welles movie 'Citizen Kane,' Soros can never have enough power. But unlike Charles Foster Kane, the haughty, imperious fictional media mogul, Soros views himself as much more than a mere leader," the report says.

"With a straight face he told reporters, 'It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out,'" Vadum continued, citing Soros' comments from 1993.

It is the second major look at Soros since the election. The monthly Whistleblower magazine looked at the "evil emperor … the Empire's shadowy and malevolent puppet-master" in its December issue.
