Financial Times has named Hungarian billionaire George Soros as its “Person of the Year” in a gushing piece about the 88-year-old leftist.
“He is the standard bearer of liberal democracy and open society. These are the ideas which triumphed in the cold war. Today, they are under siege from all sides, from Vladimir Putin’s Russia to Donald Trump’s America,” the piece said.
Financial Times called Soros a “philanthropist,” but failed to mention that the money man made his fortune by shorting currencies, betting on the economic collapse of nations and profiting when the collapses occurred. The paper also failed to mention that Soros openly admitted to helping the Nazis confiscate property from Jews in Hungary during World War II, for which he said he felt no guilt during a “60 Minutes” interview. The mainstream press has long called this fact a “right wing conspiracy.”
“The Financial Times’s choice of Person of the Year is usually a reflection of their achievements. In the case of Mr Soros this year, his selection is also about the values he represents,” the paper said.
