    In 2012, Forbes reported that Soros had sold out, but Market Watch in 2016 reported that his hedge fund, Soros Fund Management LLC, has again invested in Alphabet, the parent company of Google.

    Last week Google News Lab announced CrossCheck, aimed at censorship of pro-Le Pen news to scupper her chances of winning the French presidential election, Infowars reported.

    In a press release form Paris, Google announced a partnership between Google News Lab and First Draft to help “the French electorate make sense of what and who to trust in their social media feeds, web searches and general news consumption in the coming months.”

    First Draft is a technology company, in part funded by Google News Lab in June 2015, with a purpose to monitor online news “to raise awareness and address challenges relating to trust and truth in the digital news”.

    CrossCheck together with Facebook’s Crowd Tangle want to monitor news that is does not conform to liberal interventionism during the French election. “With combined expertise from across media and technology, CrossCheck aims to ensure hoaxes, rumors and false claims are swiftly debunked, and misleading or confusing stories are accurately reported.”

    Partners of Google News lab include AFP (Agence France-Presse), BuzzFeed News, France Médias Monde (via les Observateurs de France 24), France Télévisions, Global Voices, Libération, La Provence, Les Echos, La Voix du Nord, Le Monde (Les Décodeurs), Nice-Matin, Ouest-France, Rue89 Bordeaux, Rue89 Lyon, Rue89 Strasbourg, Storyful and StreetPress.

    The anti-Trump hard-left political activist David Brock, the founder of Media Matters who is fond of calling conservative news “fake”, is working with Google and Facebook to implement the strategy.

    Meanwhile in France it is clear that Le Pen’s possible opposition is candidate Emmanuel Macron who has powerful supporters behind the scenes. A clue may lie in the fact that the name of his party is derived from a Soros organisation in the US.

    The logo of one of Soros’ agitator associations, entitled Move On, translates into French as En marche!, the name of Macron’s new party.

    Macron’s recently deceased financier Henry Hermand was close to Soros. Francois Asselineau has suggested that Macron is a Soros surrogate.
