George Soros Hearts Sandra Day O’Connor

A new study by the Media Research Center apparently shows that George Soros “has ties to more than 30 mainstream news outlets — including The New York Times, Washington Post, the Associated Press, NBC and ABC.”

Perhaps that explains why no one has dared to ask Justice Sandra Day O’Connor if she ever received Soros funding to engage in the sort of blatantly political activity that would have caused serious ethical problems for any other judge. She has been especially active on one of Soros’s pet projects: promoting the Missouri Merit Deception Plan across the country. We know she worked with at least one Soros group when she supported a campaign on that issue in Nevada. But no one seemed to care about that until she appeared on an embarrassingly amateurish 2:00 a.m. robo-call for the campaign.
