Reuters publishes errant obituary of progressive hero George Soros

By | April 19, 2013

Reuter’s news agency accidentally published the obituary of progressive hero George Soros on Thursday even though he was not yet deceased – that we know of.

The epitaph contained the achievements and extortion of a life-long currency manipulator and feller of governments.

He was well known as “the man who broke the Bank of England” for selling short the British pound in 1992 and helping force the United Kingdom to withdraw from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism, which devalued the pound and earned Soros more than $1 billion.

And his Soros Fund Management was widely blamed for helping trigger the Asian financial crisis of 1991, by selling short the Thai baht and Malaysian ringgit.

“Subsequently, Prime Minister Mahatir of Malaysia accused me of causing the crisis, a wholly unfounded accusation,” Soros wrote in The Crisis of Global Capitalism: Open Society Endangered,” in 1998.

The Weekly Standard  continues by quoting:

“While Soros’ life has been marked by remarkable success in his far-flung endeavors, it has not been without defeat. His investment in France’s Societe Generale following Jacques Chirac’s aggressive program of privatization led to charges of insider trading, which he disputed, and eventual conviction and the payment of a small penalty,” the piece reads.

As far as CDN is informed, the hypocritical progressive champion is still alive and kicking.

    What !?! No mentioned how he saved his own life by betraying his own family in a Nazi Concentration Camp..tsk tsk..Yes, he is living as of 2008 it was just outside of Mexico in an area that is landmarked with the homes of at least 9 American millionaires. His business ‘dealings’ with Chavez indicate at least 2009.

    Was this published ‘inadvertently’ or due to some American Patriot’s wistful thinking aligned with my own?
