(LibertySons.org) – On June 24, 2021, CNN released an article covering a poll from an organization described as a “nonpartisan foundation.” CNN presented the information to show how Republicans felt about supporting Trump and his claims regarding the validity of the 2020 election.
The polling information included statistics regarding various election-related issues like whether or not participants accepted Joe Biden’s presidency as legitimate or not. An initial read could lead one to conclude the article was Left-leaning. However, a deeper review indicated the problem might lie with the poll itself and not CNN.
As it turns out, Democracy Fund, the group behind the poll, is a part of the Omidyar Group, an organization founded by billionaire Pierre Omidyar.

Omidyar created eBay and is known for donating millions to Left-wing organizations and causes, including the Center for Public Integrity and the Open Society Foundations. In addition, he has links to Democratic candidates, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, and organizations like the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
With his connections, it would make sense that his organization would want to paint Republicans in a negative light? Doing so could only help further the left’s cause.
It also leads to questions about CNN- is it possible to trust news sources when reports do not disclose the whole truth?
