"our" (not!) mainstream media

MAGA Mindset: Making YOU and America Great Again
by Mike Cernovich
Published by Castalia House. Kindle Edition
Now perhaps, like a lot of conservatives, you think that the left-wing pundits may be owned by the Left, but the right-wing pundits of the conservative media are fighting hard for the American people. If so, I’m afraid I’ll have to disappoint you. Fox News proudly calls Douglas E. Schoen a contributor. Who is Douglas E. Schoen? Schoen is a former Clinton family operative, which is bad enough in itself. It gets worse.

Believe it or not, Schoen’s primary financial benefactor appears to be a billionaire Ukranian oligarch who wants the United States to go to war with Russia.

In a remarkable conflict-of-interest, Fox News analyst and former Clinton operative Douglas E. Schoen failed to disclosed to readers that he was paid millions of dollars by Ukrainian agents, presumably in order to incite a war between the United States and Russia. Before being hired by the Ukrainians, Schoen worked for Bill Clinton and earned $ 40,000 a month brokering meetings between then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and various billionaire oligarchs. Schoen has more than 30 years experience as a pollster and political consultant. In addition to being a Fox News analyst, he is the co-host of “Fox News Insiders” which is televised on Sundays on the Fox News Channel at 7 pm EST.

In the lead-up to the 2016 election, it been reported that Schoen has been paid millions of dollars by Victor Pinchuk, Ukranian oligarch, a former member of Ukrainian parliament, and a confederate of George Soros.

Pinchuk was a member of Ukrainian parliament from 1998 to 2006, which means that Schoen was being paid $ 40,000 a month by a representative of a foreign government while maintaining close ties to both the former President and the current Secretary of State. Schoen started as an errand boy for Pinchuk, using his access to the Clinton family to arrange meetings in much the same manner he had before. Russia Today reported that “from 2009 up to 2013, the year the Ukrainian crisis erupted, the Clinton Foundation received at least $ 8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.” But why was Pinchuk paying Schoen all that money? We can’t know for certain, but based on Schoen’s appearances on Fox News, it appears that Schoen has moved well beyond conventional Clinton-style grab-the-cash corruption and into professional cheerleading for a war between the United States and Russia. Americans who lobby for foreign governments are required to register as Foreign Agents under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The Department of Justice makes these reports, along with financial disclosures, available to the public, which is why we know about Schoen’s compensation and who is paying him. And yet, incredibly, Fox News does not require its analysts to disclose these ties. Schoen’s biography is for all to see on Fox News. Look it up. Notice what is missing. His real job, and his ties to Pinchuk, go completely unmentioned.
