Biden Seeks To Lie With A Louder Voice Through Soros

On February 20th, I wrote a column about George Soros’s plan to purchase the second-largest radio broadcaster in the country. I put it this way in that column.

George Soros is the left’s version of Snidely Whiplash. A hidden puppet master that manipulates from behind a curtain of secrecy. From quietly bankrolling everything from judges, district attorneys, BLM, Antifa, politicians, and even school boards, Soros is a dangerous criminal who hates the United States and, therefore, loves everything about the left.

Recently, the Soros Fund Management team purchased what would be the controlling stake of the second-largest radio broadcaster in the country once they emerge from bankruptcy. The company, Audacy, owns 220 radio stations, including well-known names like WFAN and 1010 Wins in New York and KROQ in Los Angeles.

The New York Post reported that Soros Fund Management purchased $400 million of Audacy’s $1.9 billion debt. The bankruptcy hearing is scheduled for today, and that purchase could give the Soros Fund a 40 percent stake, which is the majority in the company.

It was no secret then, and it isn’t one now that Soros is one of the major players behind the radical left globalist movement. The very thought of this Nazi collaborator even being allowed to consider this is disgusting. However, the Biden administration not only welcomes it, his Democrat-dominated FCC is actually attempting to assist Soros.

That’s right, the FCC, with a Democratic majority, is expediting George Soros’ acquisition of the second-largest radio network in the US just months before the 2024 presidential election.

The network’s 220 stations nationwide reach 165 million monthly listeners and broadcasts several conservative shows from hosts including Erick Erickson, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Dana Loesch. According to a source familiar with the deal, it is more than likely that their time at a station controlled by Soros will be limited, The New York Post reported.

The source added that:

“The idea that George Soros is buying hundreds of local radio stations right before a national election and will keep broadcasting Sean Hannity and other conservative talk radio hosts on Audacy is not credible.”

There is so much wrong with this “transaction” that it is hard to prioritize the mistakes, but in my opinion, breaking a hard and fast FCC rule is at the top of the list. As mentioned earlier, the Soros Group purchased 40 percent of the then-bankrupt Audacy company. However, a foreign company’s ownership of U.S. radio stations cannot exceed 25 percent under existing FCC rules, so how was this purchase allowed?

The fact is that it cannot be allowed! For this to happen, an exception needs to be made to a long-existing FCC rule, and a filing acquired by the Post shows that Soros asked the commission to make just such an exception in Audacy’s case.

However, FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr is criticizing the potential agency assistance, telling the Post:

“The FCC should not create a special Soros shortcut. Regarding a broadcast station acquisition of this size and magnitude, hundreds of radio stations across more than 45 markets, the FCC needs to run its full and normal review process. The FCC should not be skipping steps or waiving required agency processes.”

No Kidding! The idea that the FCC would wave this rule for any foreign entity is unacceptable, but to make any exception for the likes of George Soros is beyond despicable.

Dominated by Democrats or not, the FCC can’t allow this to happen. Congress and the Senate need to step up and bury this blatant attempt to disrupt an American election as well as speech equality in the future.
