The President of the infamous George Soros owned Open Society demanded that Fox News ban former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova after a Wednesday segment in which he claimed that the Soros “controls a very large part of the career foreign service of the United States State Department.”
Watch the segment below that drew the ire of Soros’ Open Society foundation.
“Well, there’s no doubt that George Soros controls a very large part of the career foreign service of the United States State Department,” exclaimed diGenova, who is currently entangled in the Ukraine scandal. “He also controls the activities of FBI agents overseas who work for [non-governmental organizations]. That was very evident in Ukraine. And Kent was part of that. He was a very big protector of Soros.”

Soros “corrupted FBI officials, he corrupted foreign service officers,” the frequent Fox guest concluded. “And the bottom line is this, George Soros wants to run Ukraine and he’s doing everything he can to use every lever of the United States government to make that happen, for business interests, not for good government business.”
Open Society president Patrick Gaspard sent the letter Friday to Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott saying that diGenova’s comments are “beyond fiction” and “beyond ludicrous.”
Fox News came under fire shortly after from Jewish groups after the segment. Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, wrote on Twitter that Fox should do the same thing to diGenova that they did to Chris Farrell.
“Invoking #Soros as controlling the State Dept, FBI, and Ukraine is trafficking in some of the worst anti-Semitic tropes,” Greenblatt wrote. “@FoxNews won’t have Chris Farrell on for making similar remarks, and they should hold the same standard for @JoeDiGenova.”
Farrell accused Soros of funding the migrant caravan that left Honduras in October of 2018.
Another liberal Jewish advocacy group, J Street, told The Daily Beast that Fox should quickly fire diGenova for pushing anti-semitic conspiracy theories.
“The fact that Fox News guests have repeatedly promulgated anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about George Soros and other wealthy Jewish people is dangerous and outrageous,” J Street spokesman Logan Bayroff wrote. “It’s part of a trend of rising xenophobia in which far-right activists and their political allies demonize immigrants, Jews, Muslims and other vulnerable minority communities—a trend that has in turn fueled a surge of white supremacist violence. There can be no excuse for providing a regular platform for these hateful lies.”
