DRUDGE: NEW DAWN OF LIBERALISM

DRUDGE: NEW DAWN OF LIBERALISM

From Fake News Washington Post —

President-elect Joe Biden will face pressure to send millions of Americans $2,000 stimulus checks and deliver on an aggressive economic agenda as Democrats close in on unified control of Washington with likely Senate wins in Georgia.

Democrats whose ambitions have been strangled by a GOP Senate and president for the past two years were eyeing a new world with major opportunities for change on Wednesday — even as the coronavirus rages and the economy teeters on the brink.

Democrat Raphael Warnock won his race against Republican Kelly Loeffler in Tuesday’s Senate runoff in Georgia, and Democrat Jon Ossoff held a lead over Republican David Perdue. Winning those races would give Democrats control of the Senate, which along with their House majority and Biden’s presidency would give them a monopoly on power in the nation’s capital for the first time since Barack Obama’s first term.

It’s unclear how quickly the Democratic wins in Georgia might be certified, especially since Republicans could challenge the outcomes. Nevertheless Democrats were celebrating.

“It feels like a brand new day. For the first time in six years, Democrats will operate a majority in the United States Senate — and that will be very good for the American people,” said Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), who would become majority leader if the Democratic wins in Georgia hold.

“America is experiencing one of the greatest crises we have ever faced, and the Senate Democratic majority is committed to delivering the bold change and help Americans need and demand. Senate Democrats know America is hurting — help is on the way,” Schumer said.

George Soros Announces New Venture That Will Have a Huge Impact on Local News Outlets

A new group has been formed to fight against what it calls disinformation, using a model one activist said would “erode the public’s trust in media.”

A new public benefit corporation backed by far-left billionaires including George Soros and Reid Hoffman, the co-founder of LinkedIn, will do battle with the forces of any opinions it does not like under the banner of Good Information Inc., Axios reported Tuesday.

The outfit “aims to fund and scale businesses that cut through echo chambers with fact-based information” and will invest in local news outlets.

Axios did not disclose what form such investments might take but said it “could mean funding new or existing companies that boost news from existing news outlets.”

The group will be led by Tara McGowanwho has worked as a Democratic strategist and headed a progressive nonprofit called ACRONYM.

“The information crisis we’re in is so much bigger than politics,” McGowan said.

Good Information Inc. will acquire Courier Newsroom from ACRONYM as part of its effort to wade into local news.

Courier comes with a troubling past.

Fox News has described the company as a “far-left website” that “has managed to drive liberal messaging in key states online and on social media, with piles of cash and no financial disclosure.”

Calling Courier a “left-wing dark money operation,” Fox reported that its alleged news stories “often appear to be little more than Democratic Party talking points.”

Former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, the outside counsel for Americans for Public Trust, said the group was not a healthy addition to the media universe.

“I think it’s an unprecedented political news organization. While there are complaints of media bias, fake news, no media outlet is doing what Courier Newsroom is,” Laxalt said. “They were stood up by a large, left-of-center political world and they appear to be directly engaged in political persuasion.”
