Soros Money Funding Attempted Takeover of US Radio Giant

The progressive billionaire wants a huge slice of American news and entertainment.

George Soros has an international playbook, and he is playing it to the hilt in the United States today. Undue influence over the media landscape of sovereign nations plays an integral part in the progressive globalist billionaire’s operations, and he has powerful friends on tap to make sure the laws of individual countries do not get in his way.

“Left-leaning billionaire George Soros is trying to recruit the Democrat-controlled Federal Communications Commission [FCC] to help fast track his takeover of the nation’s second-biggest radio network,” The New York Post reported June 18. “Soros, 93, pumped $400 million into Audacy in February, a network which reaches 165 million monthly listeners and includes a handful of conservative shows from hosts including Sean Hannity, Dana Loesch, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck and Erick Erickson. But their influence is likely to be muted if the billionaire takes over and imposes his agenda, as has happened with other media acquisitions.”

There’s an even greater concern than mere political bias.

‘There’s Going to Be Foreign Investment Here’

“However, to take control Soros Fund Management needs help from the FCC as the money funneled into buying the bankrupt network comes from abroad,” The Post related.

One FCC commissioner is raising the alarm on allowing foreign money to corner a sizable chunk of the US radio market. Audacy owns more than 230 American radio stations.

“We need Congress to step in and to call attention to this so that the FCC doesn’t do this through some sort of Soros shenanigans at the bureau level,” Brendan Carr, one of two Republicans on the five-member FCC, told Newsmax in an interview. “Let’s at least take this vote at the commission level because … there’s going to be foreign investment here.”

Citizens outraged by China’s land grabs across America, which have the curious habit of frequently abutting US military installations, should not need a tutorial on the dangers posed by sketchy foreign ownership of the nation’s top media assets.

“We don’t know where the foreign investment is coming from because they haven’t specified yet,” Carr stressed. “They’ve said, Waive that rule. Let us take full control of these stations right now, and then we’ll come back to the FCC down the road and go through that foreign ownership review process. We need to take care of this right now at the outset.”

But do these same concerned Americans understand that Soros is playing out a strategy he has successfully employed abroad again and again as a means to plant the seeds of his destructive globalist agenda?

Poland Feels the Soros Squeeze

Just as conservatives in the United States are doing right now, reasonable voices in Poland in recent years expressed their fears over growing foreign control of their nation’s leading media outlets. That’s when the big guns get rolled out with all the subtleness of a Mafia protection racket.

“Poland’s lower house unleashed a major threat to media pluralism on August 11, approving a bill that prevents non-European shareholders from owning a majority stake in Polish media companies,” NGO Human Rights Watch (HRW) warned in 2019.

Foreign conglomerates owning Polish media outlets is a human rights issue? It’s undoubtedly just a coincidence that Soros happened to “grant” HRW a whopping $100 million in 2010.

What else was happening in Poland in 2019? Why, Soros was solidifying his control over the nation’s second-largest radio station. Sound familiar?

American-based multinational media goliath Discovery, owner of one of Poland’s largest private TV stations, would have been affected by the proposed legislation. This could not be allowed to happen.

“This draft legislation threatens media freedom and could undermine Poland’s strong investment climate,” Joe Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken ominously warned in August 2021 when a similar bill was again advanced.

Could the financial blackmail inherent in that sentence be more transparent? The bill passed the Polish legislature only to be vetoed by President Andrzej Duda.

“In just two years, Alexander [Soros, son of George and anointed heir to his Open Society Foundations empire] has made 14 visits – 12 in 2022 alone – to Biden’s White House, meeting all sorts of underlings and the Cabinet,” Liberty Nation News noted in 2023.

Surely that has nothing to do with anything.

Fast forward to 2023:

“A company backed by the Soros Economic Development Fund has taken control of two major Polish newspapers,” Remix News reported Aug. 28.

Job done. While the 2021 bill was not aimed at Soros, the intimidating message was sent by the European Union and the United States that Poland had no right to restrict foreign media ownership. And look who is taking full advantage of the climate created by that power flex today.

This is how it works. Why wouldn’t the most notorious big-money nation-meddler in the world expect to be able to run the same insider hit job in the budding banana republic formerly known as the sovereign United States of America?
