NEW SOROS EFFORT TARGETS ‘RIGHT WING NEWS’
Last week, Axios announced the launch of a new organization, funded by George Soros and Reid Hoffman, reporting that “Good Information Inc” would “fund and scale businesses that cut through echo chambers with fact-based information.”
But even a first look at Good Information Inc.’s wireframe webpage and at it’s founder quickly quashes any illusion that the effort is an impartial one, or even one that prioritizes objective “facts.”
The homepage of the website lists various types of unapproved information: “bad information,” “Q information,” “dis-Information,” “fake information,” and “disproven information.” The phrases are presented alongside photos of Tucker Carlson, Steve Bannon, a polling place, vaccine mandate protesters, and the Jan. 6 incident at the Capitol.
The website then presents a list of statistics that it positions as being related:
- 96 million Americans believe the election was stolen
- 89 million Americans believe voter fraud is a major problem
- 264 million Americans can’t name their state legislators
- 109 million Americans can’t name their governor
- 185 million American’s don’t trust traditional media
The organization suggests that these factors demonstrate an “urgent need for regulation of social media platforms” and “Increased investment” in new “models” of media. . . .
The group is founded and led by former Democratic strategist Tara McGowan. McGowan is an advocate for “progressive media” and publicly purports that the media is biased — in favor of the political right.
Here’s a sample of how Tara McGowan thinks:
“How did education become a top issue for VA voters? Right-wing media,” said McGowan. “They create controversies out of thin air that prey on people’s existing fears, anxieties + biases, feed their base + keep Dems on defense, then all other media pile on. Every damn time.”
