NBC News Fails to Disclose Soros Connection In Shriver Report on Women

The Media Research Center reports that a report promoted heavily by NBC News Special Anchor Maria Shriver was funded by a ultra-left political group funded by George Soros. Earlier this week Shriver was all over NBC News and MSNBC to talk about a study titled "The Shriver Report: A Woman's Nation Pushes Back From the Brink."
The promotion of the report also allowed Shriver and NBC News to portray President Obama as "sympathetic to working mothers." This push focusing on women we see throughout the media, not just on NBC, is nothing more than the media prepping the battlefield to elect Hillary Clinton. That Soros, his Center for American Progress, and NBC News would pull something like this is not even close to a surprise:
Not only did NBC allow their special anchor Maria Shriver to promote her own report on “Nightly News,” they did it without disclosing that it was made in partnership with a group that liberal billionaire George Soros gave $7.3 million to.
In “The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back From the Brink,” which was published on Jan. 11, an outspokenly liberal nun, Sister Joan Chittister, took aim at religious attitudes in America that “devalue” and marginalize women.
Shriver was invited to the White House on Jan. 14 to present her report to President Barack Obama, whom she promoted as being “sympathetic” to working mothers. On NBC “Nightly News” that same night, Shriver contrasted a supportive Obama against a Congress that is supposedly dragging its feet on the matter. "While President Obama has pledged to fix the problem, Congress has been slow to respond," Shriver said.
It is important to remember that this is NBC News and not MSNBC.
