Education dept defends blocking foi request for NED, ‘national security’ groups say

Soros: “I can say that the U.S. does have a greater interest i해운대출장안마n getting rid of me than Russia or China, and the U.S. government also gives a tremendous amount of money to political parties, if not to all of them.” (AP)

A few weeks ago, the Soros-backed Amer온라인 바카라ican Action Network, the most powerful national security group in the country, was blocked from publishing the New York Times op-ed by the Center for American Progress, which was funded by the Obama Administration. Soros-funded organizations like Americans for Prosperity and Americans United for Change, which also are closely affiliated with the Democracy Alliance, were the only two that received the New York Times’ censorship.

I also heard from members of the New York State Common Cause Commission, which investigated complaints about the Times’ attack on Soros in its June 2 report. The commission was convened to find out whether or not there was a violation of New York State Common Act 521 by The New York Times or the New York Post.

Common Cause Commissioner Joe Conason told me that the commission concluded that, despite repeated attempts to reach the Times, the newspaper did not seek public comments until the day before they published their editorial. The Times also failed to respond, Conason said.

That is a significant setback for the Times, which is not only trying to destroy its reputation; it is also, given the importance of free speech issues, being more aggressive than ever to have its paper taken down.

The Daily Forward’s editorial page editor, George Jaffe, who now chairs Common Cause, confirmed in an interview with me that the board did not try to block the Times from publishing the op-ed. He said that, at the time, the Times staff was concerned that the group was trying to create an atmosphere of fear. “That was not the case, and we did not have any specific complaint about that at that point, because we were on this about how he was trying to intimidate the press.”

Gosh, just imagine how this would go over with Jewish readers: The Daily Forward would publish
