Does the left have a new George Soros?
Breitbart Editor-in-chief Alex Marlow exposed in his new book Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruptions the role Steve Job’s widow, Laurene Jobs, is playing on the left.
The book exposes that Laurene Jobs is funding vast networks of left-wing media.
These outlets are used to push fake narratives that we are forced to deal with every day.

Though the Atlantic may be the crown jewel in Jobs’ media empire, it’s hardly alone. Jobs is also an investor in Axios, a prestige D.C. news outlet with an HBO television show. She also funds Mother Jones and ProPublica, both of which are part of the activist left but also does substantial reporting. The Emerson Collective has also partnered with NowThis, a hyperpartisan left-wing viral news video operation targeted at millennials.
Jobs also has funded ACRONYM, a Democratic technology venture, which pumped $25 million into Courier Newsroom, which claims to fund independent local newsrooms across the country. In reality, Courier is much more partisan. Bloomberg’s Joshua Green described Courier as “the Left’s plan to slip vote-swaying news into Facebook Feeds” under the guise of “hypertargeted hometown news.” Left-of-center media watchdog NewsGuard was even more cynical: “Courier and Acronym are exploiting the widespread loss of local journalism to create and disseminate something we really don’t need: hyperlocal partisan propaganda.”
They are right. The decline of print and independent media has created an opportunity for monied partisans to launder their political activism through established media brands. Courier seemingly shows how far that exploitation has gone.
In addition to backing major media brands, Emerson Collective actively supports the Democratic Party.
For example, in 2016, EC gave $2.5 million to DNC super-PAC Priorities Action USA. But Jobs is more than just a major Democrat donor. Obama’s education secretary Arne Duncan and general services administrator Dan Tangherlini are part of EC. Jobs is said to have a “tight” personal relationship with Kamala Harris, who was a California senator before becoming vice president. Naturally, the Atlantic has lavished praise on Harris, barely stopping short of endorsing her during the 2019–20 Democrat primaries.
Laurene Powell Jobs went to the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford, she worked for Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs, she married well and inherited a lot of money, and her wealth is tied up in some of world’s biggest companies. She is the establishment.
