Whether or not you approve of the politics of Texas Governor Rick Perry, you have to admit one thing about the coverage of his indictment on corruption-related allegations. In the 38 minutes and 34 seconds of relevant stories running on ABC, CBS and NBC from August 15th through 20th, the networks failed to clarify who was behind the official complaint. Yes, you may have heard the term “Texans for Public Justice,” but you were not told it was part of a “progressive” coalition that has received half a million dollars from George Soros. The left-wing billionaire is barely mentioned on the media outlets that are subjects of his largesse.

Curiously, the mainstream media did not seem too disturbed. It was the alternative media that made the loudest outcry. Now back to context. It seems George Soros was in the background all the time.
