    a part of what David Brock has been talking about?  Sen. Bernie Sanders also mentioned that a new progressive media was in the works.

    •  We're not speaking directly to David Brock ... (8+ / 0-)

      But, we are speaking to some folks in some other progressive circles who may be sharing our efforts with him.  As relationships with other progressive leaders and institutions are formalized, we will keep everyone up-to-date on the PLAN America website.

        George Soros Tells Progressive Donors Obama Might Not Be The Best Investment
        First Posted: 11-17-10 04:10 PM   |   Updated: 11-17-10 04:34 PM


        WASHINGTON -- At a private meeting on Tuesday afternoon, George Soros, a longtime supporter of progressive causes, voiced blunt criticism of the Obama administration, going so far as to suggest that Democratic donors direct their support somewhere other than the president.

        The Hungarian-American financier was speaking to a small side gathering of donors who had convened in Washington D.C. for the annual gathering of the Democracy Alliance -- a formal community of well-funded, progressive-minded individuals and activists.


        "Mr. Soros fully supports the president as the leader of the Democratic Party," said Vachon. "He was not suggesting that we seek another candidate for 2012. His comments were made in a private, informal conversation that was about the need for progressives to be more forceful in promoting their agenda. He was stressing the importance of being heard by elected officials."
