The Price Of Astroturf (Wizbang)

Who really engages in astroturfing? The Price Of Astroturf (Wizbang)

These past few weeks haven't been very good for those who dismiss the "George Soros is an evil genius out to remake the world" notion as a whacked-out conspiracy theory.
First up, the liberal religious coalition known as Sojourners had to walk back a little on their previous statements regarding their funding sources. It went from "we got nothing from George Soros" to "we got nothing from George Soros, if by 'nothing' you mean $325,000 funneled through one of his favorite front groups."
So much for Sojourner's Truth.
Then, it was announced that Soros had given (openly, this time) $100 million dollars -- that's $100,000,000 -- to Human Rights Watch. This isn't a matter of Soros buying the group; he didn't need to. They already agree with much of his anti-Zionist, anti-Western prejudices. This was simply a matter of rewarding them for agreeing with him, and helping them advance his agenda.
