News reporters can be cruel and unethical. The 2016 campaign for president has proven that point. The world now sees the news media as a biased group of self-promoters on Twitter that want to fuel their own agendas at the expense of the reputations of others. Not all media people are callous and self-absorbed. But those people don’t sit in the seats that count on the major networks and behind the desks of the influential newspapers that want to control the democracy of the country.
People like Glenn Beck, the political pundit, and alleged reputation destroyer, is one of the people that does have an audience, and he uses that audience to spread his beliefs. His beliefs are jaded, however. A good example of how jaded they are is Beck’s description of George Soros a few years ago. Beck painted Soros as a manipulator and puppet master that is anti-Jewish and against Israel. Beck also said Soros tries to influence elections, and he likes to control governments as well as destroy them. All of those allegations are false. George Soros is a philanthropist, humanitarian, economists and one of the most successful investors in the financial industry.

George Soros didn’t inherit his wealth. George was born in Hungary 86 years ago. His family was Jewish, but being Jewish in Hungary in the 1930s was dangerous. The Nazis controlled Hungary during that time. George’s father decided to protect his family by changing the family’s name and getting phony passports made. That strategy worked for George. Soros managed to leave Hungary, and he traveled to London on his own. His family managed to join him much later, so in order to support himself, he worked as a waiter. George was accepted by the London School of Economics, and he earned a degree in philosophy and a strong interest in finance and economics. In 1956, Soros moved to New York. Soros was offered a job on Wall Street, and that was the start of his incredible investment career.
The rest of the George Soros story has been written and talked about for the last 40 years. Soros is currently listed on the Forbes List as the 32nd richest person on the planet. Soros donates billions of dollars to worthy causes around the world. Soros donated more than $8 million to help Hillary Clinton and other Democrats win the election, and he has pledged $500 million to refugees that start their own businesses. George is constantly attending world summits, and he is interviewed more than any other hedge fund investor. Soros believes in freedom of expression, religious unity, open borders, and democracy.
But Glenn Beck ignored all of Soros accomplishments. Beck believes Soros has no scruples. Beck false claims may raise his rating, but when the facts are checked Beck fails big time. Soros is a man with principles, character, and a sense of caring. George shook off Beck’s Fox News Show. Soros said it was a Rupert Murdock ploy to discredit him.
