The left-wing New York Times has snubbed a hugely popular exposé on George Soros by not including the book on its “Best Seller” list.
The new book, “The Man Behind the Curtain: Inside the Secret Network of George Soros,” was written by renowned investigative journalist and author Matt Palumbo.
Since it was first published earlier this month, Palumbo’s book has caused waves by lifting the lid on Soros’ disturbing level of influence in the United States and beyond.
Ahead of its release, excerpts of the book were reported in the media, revealing that Soros even has leverage in the upper echelons of President Joe Biden’s administration.
As Slay News previously reported, Palumbo exposes Soros’ close ties to Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
In late November, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) raised concerns that Soros has direct influence over the Biden admin.
Zeldin requested, for the third time, facts from Blinken regarding sanctions against former Albanian President and Prime Minister Sali Berisha.
Berisha is a vocal critic of George Soros who has publicly traded blows with the far-left billionaire on numerous occasions.
Blinken cited “significant corruption” for the sanctions against Berisha but has failed to provide any evidence to support the claims.
However, the sanctions against Berisha earlier in May raised red flags due to Blinken’s family ties to Soros.
Zeldin has repeatedly requested evidence of the alleged “significant corruption” from Blinken but has failed to get a response.
In his new book, Palumbo exposes the deep family ties between Soros and Secretary Blinken.
As Palumbo documents:
Responsible for providing the facts on Berisha’s alleged corruption to the Department of State is the East-West Management Institute.
The Institute is headed by a woman named Delina Fico who has the job title of Director of Civil Society.
The East-West Management Institute is one of two Soros-spawned groups (the other being Central European University) that he says he “envisions as permanent institutions.”
Fico was once engaged to Albanian socialist president Edi Rama, and later married Bledi Çuçi, one of Rama’s closest allies.
Evidently, Blinken can’t speak on behalf for anyone else at the State Department when it comes to their connections to Soros, or even his own father.
Antony’s father Donald Blinken and his wife Vera funded the Vera and Donald Blinken Open Society Archives at Soros’ Central European University (CEU), which houses a digital collection of Hungarian historical documents.
The trio has also been photographed together. In one Soros Foundations Network report from 2002, Blinken’s father is listed on the Board of Trustees for CEU third after Soros (the chair) and Aryeh Neier.
Donald Blinken was U.S. ambassador to Hungary from 1994 to 1998, right as Soros was setting up shop there, and he and his wife had close ties to the socialist government.
The daily blog Hungarian Spectrum, which boasts Soros among its donors, celebrated Blinken as a potential secretary of state pick after the 2020 election because “Hungary will not be forgotten in the next four or perhaps eight years in Washington.”
After Blinken was confirmed as secretary of state, Hungarian newspaper Magyar Nemzet called it “great news for George Soros.”
According to Bookscan, “The Man Behind the Curtain” was the 12th best-selling book on the Nonfiction Overall list (all categories, paperback, and hardcover).
It was also ranked #1 in the Biography/Autobiography category.
Despite its impressive sales, the New York Times excluded the book from their “Best Seller” lists.
According to Palumbo, his book was not the only one to be snubbed by the NY Times.
The new book by conservative radio host Glenn Beck was also mysteriously absent.
Like Palumbo’s book, Beck’s “The Great Reset” features George Soros on the cover and is also heavily critical of the far-left billionaire.
Unsurprisingly, Soros’ power grip extends into the media, and in particular, the New York Times.
In 2018, the Washington Free Beacon revealed that Soros purchased $3 million worth of stock holdings in the publisher of the New York Times.
Filings show that Soros bought up 126,400 shares in the New York Times Company through Soros Fund Management LLC, the billionaire’s New York City-based investment firm.
The shares were valued at $3,046,000 at the time of purchase and are shown in a May 15, 2018 filing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture at the Media Research Center, found in 2011 that Soros pushed a minimum of $48 million into media ventures that include “journalism schools, investigative journalism, and even industry organizations” over the course of just eight years.
Soros disburses funding to a number of groups that then, in turn, push funding to other organizations, making it nearly impossible to trace the true figure, Gainor noted at the time.
Matt Palumbo’s “Man Behind the Curtain” documents Soros’ shady network of global groups and how he uses them to peddle influence around the world.
“A large theme of the book obviously has to do with Soros’ influence on the media, so it’s at least nice of them to confirm that part of the book,” Palumbo commented.
