Fox news is used to airing nasty things about issues, and nobody seems to take notice. However, some time back, the cable television made a personal attack on a certain individual on topics.wsj.com. Only that this time, the attack didn’t go unnoticed. To make things worse, the station made an advert of 30 seconds explaining why the program was morally correct. The advert was presented in a black and white screen with a phrase saying “My Mother was quite anti-Semitic and ashamed of being a Jew.” The advert then depicts Jews hurrying in a European street. The advert is presented in black and white. Anyone who watched the program would have realized that the program was a campaign against George Soros. George Soros is known as a hedge fund manager who is notorious for funding anti-totalitarian as well as other liberal causes. The program also portrays George Soros as an anti-Semite and depicts him as an enemy of the state of Israel. However, for those who know George Soros, the whole story is a fabrication and tells lies about Soros.
The producers of this program have taken phrases from a book called “The world according to Soros” and placed them in their program without context. George Soros is a successful investor who has a story to tell. He was born in 1930 in Budapest, Hungary. Soros grew up in a community dominated by Nazis who often persecuted people who held other beliefs than theirs. He managed to survive through the help of his dad who would forge documents and use fake identities.

He is a democrat as he funds Democratic candidates on project-syndicate.org from time to time. He has funded Hilary Clinton, Barack Obama as well as John Kelly.
This program by Fox news was meant to destroy the reputation of George Soros and portray him as an enemy of the people. The program was meant to make him look like a selfish person who used the media, the Democratic Party, and other unions to benefit himself. The presenter of this program didn’t stop the attack on live TV. He continued making the attacks on a radio show that is meant to supplement the TV show. He referred Soros to a Jewish boy who was contributing to the persecution of fellow Jews. However, the show didn’t go well with the viewers as many saw it as a personal attack on a patriotic citizen.
