    (WMR)—National news media operations based in Boston are almost like musicals that run “off Broadway.”

    We can add Global Post to the off-Broadway journalistic hit parade. Global Post is the Boston-based
    website that employed freelance photo journalist James Foley in Syria, recently beheaded by his
    Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) guerrillas in Iraq, appears to be a subsidized operation with
    an agenda that matches up nicely with that of international hedge fund tycoon George Soros.

    National media operations not based in New York or Washington, DC are usually subsidized by
    interests with agendas. One Boston-based media operation that has a clear agenda is The Christian
    Science Monitor,
    a church-owned operation, which has become increasingly neoconservative in its
    coverage since it scrapped its print edition and became an exclusively web-based operation. The other
    Boston-based national media operation is CAMERA—the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East
    Reporting in America—which serves as the Israel Lobby’s often rabid media watchdog.

    Foley, who was kidnapped on November 22, 2012, in northern Syria, near Idlib, by Syrian guerrillas
    who were not members of ISIL for the simple reason that ISIL did not yet exist. Foley was originally
    captured by an Islamist group that took its orders from the Central Intelligence Agency-organized and
    trained Free Syrian Army (FSA), whose leaders led their “army” not from the battlefield but from posh
    Istanbul hotel suites paid for by the Turkish, Saudi, and Qatari governments.
