Liberal groups attacking Fox News host Bill O’Reilly about his past reporting got more than $15 million from left-wing billionaire George Soros. The story, questioning claims O’Reilly made as a reporter early in his career, was broken by Mother Jones, a project of the liberal Foundation for National Progress.

From Mother Jones, the story was picked up by a variety of Soros-funded outlets, including Alternet (a project of the Independent Media Institute), NPR, The Nation, Media Matters for America and the Columbia Journalism Review – all funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundations. Out of the $10.6 million that Soros has given to Columbia University, at least $500,000 went directly to the Review.
