Soros allegedly behind massive world-wide ‘fact-checking’ mission to silence dissent

An investigation by Matt Palumbo of the New York Post has found that billionaire George Soros is doing more than just funding the media and far-left prosecutors — he’s also orchestrating a campaign to silence all dissent.

He’s reportedly orchestrating this campaign through the use of “fact-checkers.”

“Last year, Soros partnered with fellow leftist billionaire Reid Hoffman (the co-founder of LinkedIn) to financially back a project to fight so-called disinformation. The name they chose might have come from George Orwell himself: Good Information Inc,” Palumbo writes for the Post.

“Later in the year, heading into the midterms, in an open letter signed by 11 other leftist groups, the Soros-funded Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights called on Big Tech CEOs to take ‘immediate’ action to spread so-called ‘voting disinformation’ to ‘help prevent the undermining’ of democracy. The signatories had received a combined $30.3 million from Soros in just a four-year period,” he continues.

This comes amid Soros’ already successful efforts at silencing dissent overseas.

Palumbo notes that, according to a recent report from the right-wing Hungarian publication Remix, eight of the 11 Facebook-approved “fact-checkers” for Central and Eastern Europe were funded by Soros.

These “fact-checkers” are reportedly mainly critical of the political right. The same is true in the United States.

“Major fact-checking organizations such as PolitiFact, Snopes, and others have long faced allegations of left-wing political bias — allegations a series of studies over the years have confirmed. One of the more recent studies of bias on PolitiFact found sources six times more likely to defend [President Joe] Biden in their ‘fact-checks’ than check his facts,” Palumbo writes.

PolitiFact’s parent company is The Poynter Institute, and according to Palumbo, it’s funded by a number of organizations, including the Soros-backed Tides Foundation and Tides Center.

One of its projects, the International Fact-Checking Network, was reportedly launched in 2015, again with funding from a number of organizations, including Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

“The IFCN acts as the ‘high body’ for the dozens of fact-checking organizations under its umbrella, which unite under a shared code of principles, and a mission ‘to bring together the growing community of fact-checkers around the world and advocates of factual information in the global fight against misinformation,'” Palumbo notes.

“Among the most well-known organizations that are affiliated with the IFCN include the Associated Press fact checker,, The Dispatch fact checker, The Washington Post fact checker and PolitiFact,” he adds.

They’re basically all the same so-called “fact-checkers” who routinely get the facts wrong.

And the reason they get the facts wrong is because they’re “anything but impartial.”

“Facebook and other social-media companies censored any articles that suggested the COVID-19 virus leaked from a Wuhan lab, based on denials of scientists who had a conflict of interest. Now that even top researchers say the lab leak is a distinct possibility, they’ve lifted those restrictions,” Palumbo notes.

“Hunter Biden’s laptop was censored because intelligence officials said it ‘could be’ Russian disinformation — it wasn’t. Articles questioning the effects of climate change are given warning labels even if they are backed up by data,” he adds.

Dovetailing back to Soros’ influence, it’s particularly sinister because he uses his power to protect his own name.

“A simple search for Soros’ name on PolitiFact’s website reveals that they’re unwilling to admit a single damning allegation made against the man — of which there are many. The extent to which PolitiFact in particular will go to defend Soros, and make sure people see it, is further than for anyone else,” Palumbo points out.

For instance, conservative radio show host Candace Owens once claimed that Soros was “funding the chaos” in Minneapolis during the 2020 riots.

“Emily Venezky [of PolitiFact] predictably rates Owens’ claim ‘False’ while citing a 2015 Snopes fact check that admits Soros donated $33 million to organizations ‘that have worked with Black Lives Matter or worked to raise awareness during the Ferguson-related protests’ in the past,” according to Palumbo.

“She then tries to hedge that admission when it comes to the then-recent Minneapolis riots with the supposed disclaimer: ‘However, they had never given money to groups for the express purpose of organizing protests with the movement,'” he writes.

Using this bogus line of thinking, Venezsky then labeled Owens’ claim false.

Similarly, PolitiFact’s Yacob Reyes ran a “fact-check” this past April “to debunk claims that Soros was funding Black Lives Matter — only to admit and downplay his funding of BLM-adjacent groups.”

“Writing in response to Owens saying that Soros ‘injected $33 million into Black Lives Matter,’ Reyes rated the claim ‘False’ because the groups weren’t official BLM groups — but merely radical far-left groups that share virtually an identical ideology to Black Lives Matter (and everything else Soros funds) and engage in the same kind of disruptive activities,” Palumbo wrote.

Indeed, every so-called PolitiFact “fact-check” pertaining to Soros functions similarly, with the “fact-checker” jumping through hoops to defend him just like it defends President Biden. And this, of course, is the point of it all.

“When it comes to objectively true allegations that have been made about Soros network; such as his funding of rogue prosecutors nationwide, his connections to various media figures, his connections to the Biden White House, and much more, the fact-checkers simply ignore them,” Palumbo writes.

“Which is, essentially, the upshot of why Soros and other left-wing groups have weaponized ‘fact checking’ — it allows them to pressure social media to censoring any news they don’t like,” he concludes.
