Soros-Funded Group Backs New Film Attacking Kochs

‘Koch Brothers Exposed‘ filmmaker ignores irony that he is backed by lefty billionaire.

Brave New Films, Soros ally Robert Greenwald’s pet project, is releasing a film aptly titled “Koch Brothers Exposed.” The film is presented as a shocking expose of a looming threat to democracy, and features a parade of left-wing “experts” who talk about how the conservative philanthropist brothers are actually trying to remake America in their own image.

Brave New Films is a part of the Media Consortium, an organization that “'is a network of the country's leading, progressive, independent media outlets.” The list is predictable –  everything from Alternet to the Young Turks, who have since lost their MSNBC show.

Soros funds nearly every major left-wing media source in the United States through the Media Consortium which has gotten $425,000 in Soros funds since 2000.

More than half of the experts who speak in the video are from organizations which are funded by Soros, either directly or as a part of the Media Consortium. Others include the likes of Van Jones, the former green jobs czar who disappeared from the White House in a late-night resignation after it was revealed he had signed a 9/11 Truther petition. (He now has a senior fellowship at the Center for American Progress, which received $7.3 million from Soros's Open Society Foundations) and Sen. Bernie Sanders, the self-labeled democratic-socialist senator from Vermont.

Previous Brave New Films projects include attacks on the war in Afghanistan, FOX News, Sen. John McCain and Wal-Mart, as well as previous attacks on the Koch brothers. The Brave New Films site has an entire section going after Fox called: “When Fox Attacks.” It claims: “Videos from this campaign have been viewed over 8 million times.”
