Eighteen of 20 board members tasked with oversight of Facebook fact-checking have ties to George Soros or his organization

The Puppet Master … at this point, anything “Fact Checked” as False, should be considered God’s Honest Truth

The vast majority of Facebook’s “independent oversight board” established with authority to allow or remove content from the platform have ties to liberal billionaire George Soros or groups he supports, according to a new report.

An investigation by Sharyl Attkisson of RealClearPolitics showed that 18 out of the 20 members of the Facebook oversight board “collaborated with or are tied to groups” that have received funding from Soros’s Open Society Foundations.

Some of the board members include Evelyn Aswad, a U.S. law professor who received a grant from a foundation that has partnered with Soros. Aswad has also said she believes corporations should align their “speech codes with international human rights law” and be guided by “international law on freedom of expression.”

One of the board’s co-chairs, Jamal Greene, is a former aide to California Sen. Kamala Harris and a law school professor at Columbia University, both have ties to the Soros family and his foundation, according to the report. Greene’s Twitter account also contains several anti-Trump postings.

Board member Maina Kiai is the director of Human Rights Watch’s Alliances and Partnerships Initiative, which has taken $100 million from Soros. Kiai was also a founding member of the Kenya Human Rights Commission, which received over $600,000 from the Hungarian born donor and philanthropist.

Another co-chair, Denmark’s former socialist Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt, has spoken out in favor of “rethinking” democracy and is a trustee at the Open Society Foundations-funded International Crisis Group, where Soros and his son Alexander are board members, according to the report.
