InfluenceWatch Episode #136: Ford Foundation and the Radical Left (with guest Sloan Rachmuth!)

In recent weeks we have covered the actions of Big Philanthropy, and for most of the modern history of philanthropy there has been no bigger force than the Ford Foundation, established by the reliably capitalist Henry Ford but turned since the 1950s to the hard-left under leaders from Robert Maynard Hutchins to McGeorge Bundy to present-day foundation president Darren Walker.
