George Soros Responds To Glenn Beck, Fox News Attacks (VIDEO)

HuffPost- First Posted: 02/19/11 09:04 AM Updated: 02/19/11 09:13 AM

Liberal billionaire George Soros responded to Glenn Beck’s frequent attacks on him during an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria that is set to air on this Sunday’s episode of “Fareed Zakaria GPS.”

Beck has repeatedly cast Soros as the “puppet master” and chief architect of a shadowy group of left-wing people and organizations who are determined to destroy the current geopolitical system and replace it with a “new world order.” Beck’s statements about Soros’ experiences during the Holocaust have proved so controversial that 400 rabbis signed a letter asking Fox News CEO Roger Ailes to “sanction” his host for making them.

Speaking about Beck, Soros told Zakaria, “I would be amused if people saw the joke in it,” adding that he thinks Beck is “projecting” the views of Rupert Murdoch, who owns Fox News, and who Soros accused of “telling the people some falsehoods and leading the government in the wrong direction.”

Soros said he thinks Fox News “has imported the methods of George Orwell, you know, newspeak, where you can tell the people falsehoods and deceive them.”

I still can’t understand why David Gregory has a job, when it takes another reporter from another network to show the hypocrisy Gregory’s own guests are displaying right at his Meet The Press desk.

Fareed Zakaria argued on February 4 that the budget Obama inherited was completely broken in the first place, first by the Bush tax cuts and secondly by the prescription drug plan for the elderly and two wars that were “off budget.” The Bush Administration set the next several generations up with a massive budgetary mess that will not go away with politics running the governmental show.

But Zakaria points out that even those who are NOT elected officials, including Hank Paulson and Alan Greenspan, are so subservient to the corporate overlords that they will not hear of rescinding the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy even after they wail over the horrible-ness of the deficits.

Until some grown-ups run the show in Washington, our Federal financial house will be a condemned hovel.
