Politico Reporter Vogel Worked For Soros-Funded Group

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. But of course.

You knew there had to be more.

Can you say "George Soros"????

The Media Research Center's Dan Gainor, the MRC VP for Business and Culture, points out an interesting fact about Politico's Ken Vogel.

We've posted here and here and here about the saga of the fake talk radio scandal. Pointing out that these stories are coming from Politico "reporter" Vogel who seems to have, as Jeff Poor over at The Daily Caller politely termed it, a "lefty" agenda.

Mark Levin, shy and retiring talk radio host that he is, posted this about Vogel.

But now there's more.

Gainor has provided more substance on Poor's instinct.

"Reporter" Vogel is in fact a former staffer for the George Soros funded Center for Public Integrity. Says Politico itself (albeit well down in the bio) in this staff bio found here:

Before joining POLITICO prior to its 2007 launch, Vogel reported for …. The Center for Public Integrity in Washington, D.C.

In other words, what we have here, unacknowledged to the general public by Politico, is a former Soros guy using the cyber pages of Politico to take a swing at the integrity of Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, the Heritage Foundation, Americans for Prosperity and so on. Everyone on the list being a Soros target in one form, fashion or another.

Did David Frum tell you this?

No.

Did Politico tell you this? No.

We're happy to tell you here, though. And a decided hat tip to Dan Gainor and the Media Research Center.

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. We wouldn't want word to get out on how things really work at Politico, would we?

Oh yes…that headline cited earlier in our last post…the one Vogel had for his story on the judgeship race in Wisconsin that features the idea that a "conservative" is losing? It turns out Vogel is a graduate of that right-wing bastion known as…the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Gollllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeee Ned, as Gomer Pyle used to say. Imagine that. From the University of Wisconsin-Madison to George Soros to Politico, give or take a few stops. 

And they wonder why the MSM has lost all credibility.
