When Elon Musk’s Twitter made the decision to honestly affirm what has been true for decades, National Public Radio took umbrage.

The decision to brand the organization as a mouthpiece for the ruling government was right on target, and the way one story is being covered is a textbook example.

And state media outlet NPR is complaining about conservatives tying George Soros to Alvin Bragg.

NPR leftists are crying foul at critics who note Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s financial ties to billionaire George Soros. 

Bragg is the District Attorney who is twisting himself into a pretzel trying to come up with a reason to prosecute former President Trump.

They are especially incensed at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

On a recent broadcast, host Mary Louise Kelly interviewed far-Left Soros biographer Emily Tamkin.

Tamkin made light of the fact that Soros gave $1 million to the anti-police Color of Change PAC just days after the group pledged $1 million to support Bragg’s 2021 election campaign. 

She also set the stage for Tamkin to accuse “conservative politicians” who criticize Soros of anti-Semitism, deliberately trying to mischaracterize their legitimate policy disagreements with Soros.

Kelly was forced to concede that her argument was wrong when she said that “I want to open by noting that NPR has in the past accepted money from Soros’ foundation to finance independent reporting on state governments.”

It’s also a textbook example of how NPR denigrates and unfairly characterizes any person or group who does not act in concert with the current left-wing administration.

A recent investigative report detailed how Soros’ direct funding of NPR gave him influence with their entire workforce of 1,800 journalists and 400 reporters and editors in over 200 member stations across the country.

Media Research Center Business Vice President Dan Schneider called out NPR tactics.

Schneider said that “NPR is doing what weak people typically do: they call their opponents nasty names instead of addressing the actual issue. Simply because the largest donor to Democrats and left-wing causes happens to be Jewish should not make it impossible to point out that Soros is a funder of the most radical, left-wing causes.”

Kelly asked Tamkin if “there was any evidence that Soros got something for this money in the case of Alvin Bragg, that his money bought influence in some way?” 

“No, there’s no evidence of that,” Tamkin answered. “This is over-assigning the influence of Soros over Bragg and also dramatically overstating the agency that Soros has over this case.” 

Bongino Report’s Matt Palumbo took this argument apart.

Palumbo pointed out the absurdity of the idea that Soros happened to finance the exact amount Color of Change PAC initially pledged to support Bragg just days after the PAC’s announcement.

What NPR is really upset about is that, especially in light of their newfound Twitter description, more and more people are realizing that they are spewing propaganda.

No amount of taxpayer funding is going to undo that ding to their reputation.

And NPR deserves to be called out for the hacks that they are.
