Facebook claims its new oversight board, which has the authority to allow or remove content from the platform, is diverse in thought and opinion, but an investigation has determined that 18 out of the 20 members of the board have ties to liberal billionaire George Soros or groups he supports.
Sheryl Attkisson’s investigation for RealClearInvestigations revealed that 18 out of 20 members of the “independent” board “collaborated with or are tied to groups that have received funding from George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.”
The Open Society Foundation is perhaps the foremost and most well-funded progressive organization in the world. Soros has donated billions to various left-wing causes for decades, and most recently donated over $200 million to Black Lives Matter and another $50 million to elect former Vice-President Joe Biden in the United States.
A recent New York Times op-ed from the oversight board claimed, “The board members come from different professional, cultural and religious backgrounds and have various political viewpoints.”
