FCC Cites Soros-Funded, Neo-Marxist-Founded Group 46 TIMES In New Regs

Chuck Ross reports that new internet regulations finally released by the Federal Communications Commission make 46 references to a group funded by billionaire George Soros and co-founded by a neo-Marxist.

The FCC released the 400-page document on Thursday, two weeks after it passed new regulations, which many fear will turn the internet into a public commodity and thereby stifle innovation.

The Soros-funded group misleadingly calls itself, Free Press. It is, in fact, a pro-regulation group in bed with the FEC  via the evil net neutrality scheme.

As Phil Kerpen, president of the free-market group American Commitment, first noted, Free Press is mentioned repeatedly in the FCC document. Most of the references are found in footnotes which cite comments by Free Press activists supporting more internet regulation.

The term “Free Press” is mentioned 62 times in the regulations. Some are redundant mentions referring to the same Free Press activists’ comments in favor of more oversight. In total, the FCC cited Free Press’ pro-net neutrality arguments 46 times.

Robert W. McChesney is co-founder of  Free Press. He was co-editor of the socialist periodical Monthly Review.

In an interview with journalist John Fund for National Review, McChesney acknowledged that he was a socialist and said he was “hesitant to say I’m not a Marxist.”

In 2001 Adbusters magazine—whose founder, Kalle Lasn, played a key role in the launch of the Occupy Wall Street movement—named McChesney as one of its “Nine Pioneers of Mental Environmentalism.”



  1. It should come as no surprise that a a democratic entity spews out Marxist propaganda because, at its core, democracy is communism. Its straight up collectivism. Its the opposite of individual freedom, its the collective ruling over individuals.
