Of course, our taxpayer funded broadcaster is much more tolerant. As this post on B-BBC shows if you're coming from the left, a little bit of bias is apparently not "inconsistent with our editorial standards.” I'm sure, had Williams espoused analogous views his job would have been quite safe and his boss would have been as indulgent as this one

On the subject of Soros financing extremists, it reminds me of a plot from "A Deadly Shade of Gold" in the Travis McGee series by one of my favourite authors John D Macdonald. In the story, the villain - a rich bored pervert - has a hobby of financing tiny but extremely dangerous extremist groups, not for any political purpose but out of just plain mischief. This is slightly different from Soros who is probably not a pervert but who, it seems to me, is serious in seeking to excite dangerous and, ultimately, murderous extremism.

Crikey! I haven't read a John D. MacDonald in years and I used to devour his stuff by the ton!

Soros is deliberately attempting to use his influence to push down the dollar and I assume that he has converted considerable wealth into gold. As for his infiltration of the American media, at least he is now out in the open so let him and 'Rupe' fight it out in the glare of publicity.

Nina Tottenberg is a popular reporter for NPR. This is what she once said about Jesse Helms, who opposed funding for AIDS research (probably knowing that the funding would pass anyway):

“If there is retributive justice, he’ll get AIDS from a transfusion, or one of his grandchildren will get it"

Was she fired? No.

Yes, Dom, I saw that repeated by Fox yesterday. Tells you all you need to know about NPR!
