Once again, CBS continues to carry water for the Kerry Campaign - even going so far as to "partner" with a Soros-funded 527 designed to push polls for John Kerry.

Poll Gives Kerry Big Lead Among Voters Under 30
09.21.2004 11:53 AM EDT
Younger voters think the country is heading in the wrong direction and that President Bush does not share their priorities, but they like Bush personally and are unsure about John Kerry.
Overall, Kerry has a substantial lead among voters under thirty, a reversal of the Bush's nine-point advantage among all registered voters. In a head-to-head contest, Kerry is leading Bush by 10 points (51-41), and in a contest that includes Ralph Nader, Kerry is ahead by 6 (46-40-4).
These results came from a new poll of 18-29-year-olds (conducted September 8-13) by CBS News on behalf of MTV and the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning & Engagement (CIRCLE).
A previous investigation revealed the direct ties that "CIRCLE" - aka CIVICYOUTH - has to the Soros/Kerry money machine. Now, dear reader, we find that CBS is partnering directly with Soros to publish press-releases for the Kerry campaign; but CBS/MTV is disguising these Soros press releases as news. This may be a flagrant violation of the Federal Election Laws, and is most certainly a violation of what used to be journalistic ethical code.
Don your fedoras, cyber-detectives: it's time to see whom the "researchers" are working for...
Center for Information and Research
"Since 2001, CIRCLE has conducted, collected, and funded research on the civic and political participation of young Americans. CIRCLE is based in the University of Maryland's School of Public Policy and is funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts and Carnegie Corporation of New York."
Sounds good, eh? But a little further googling takes you to The Democracy Collaborative, and you see CIRCLE is connected to -
"The Democracy Collaborative: About the Collaborative"
"The principal initiators of The Democracy Collaborative include:
Benjamin R. Barber Distinguished University Professor, Gershon and Carol Kekst Professor of Civil Society and the Maryland System-wide Wilson H. Elkins Professor at the University of Maryland, and author of Jihad vs. McWorld, Strong Democracy, and other works.
William A. Galston, "Saul I. Stern Professor" of Civic Engagement in the Maryland School of Public Affairs, Director of the Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy, Director of the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning & Engagement (CIRCLE) and a founder of the National Alliance for Civic Education.
And what is their mission, pray tell? Well, a Global Society, according to their own website:
"The Civworld Campaign"
The Democracy Collaborativebelieves it is is vital that "preventive war" strategiesbe supplemented and/or replaced by "preventive democracy" strategies. Our CivWorld initiative is now promoting the "Declaration of Interdependence" and an "Interdependence Day" celebration scheduled for September 12, 2003 as a positive alternative program of international cooperation. The first annual Interdependence Day will be launched at the American Philosophical Societyin Philadelphia and on the campus of the University of Maryland at College Park. For more information, visit www.civworld.org.
"CIRCLE/Democracy Collaborative" is also very aggressive in pushing for a "transnational society", meaning: no national boundaries. Ahhhh, this is no objective polling organization; rather, it is a "non-profit" with an agenda. An agenda that supports John Kerry's campaign...
And who might be behind this "Democracy Collaborative"? Why, none other than George Soros himself.

Why, look! There's Benjamin Barber, one of the Founding Principals of CIRCLE!
Let's go over the evidence one more time, shall we?
-Center for Information and Research at the University of Maryland =CIRCLE
-CIRCLE = Democracy Collaborative
-Democracy Collaborative = George Soros
-George Soros = funding of fake Kerry Campaign "polls" via Soft Money.
-Fake Kerry Campaign "Polls" = free advertising by CBS, MRV, Viacom
It comes as no surprise that CBS/Viacom Empire would literally hand over air time/print space to Kerry for a free commercial funded by soft money. Rather than surprise us, it should outrage us that a once proud network has become nothing more than a Propaganda machine for George Soros and the Democratic Party...
