Steve Kroft of CBS' 60 Minutes penned an article critical of George Soros.

One Evil Human FROM STEVE KROFT (60 Minutes) This is very interesting material. Glen Beck has been developing material to show all the ties that Soros has through the nation and world along with his goals. This article is written by Steve Kroft from 60 Minutes. It begins to piece together the rise of Obama and his behavior in leading the nation along with many members of Congress (in particular the Democrats, such as the election of Pelosi as the minority leader in Congress) Interesting read on George Soros If you have wondered where Obama came from and just how he quickly moved from obscurity to President, or why the media is "selective" in what we are told, here is the man who most probably put him there and is responsible. He controls President Obama's every move. Think this is absurd? Invest a few minutes and read this. You won't regret it. Who is Obama? Obama is a puppet and here is the explanation of the man or demon that pulls his strings. It's not by chance that Obama can manipulate the world. I don't think he knows how to tie his shoe laces. After reading this and Obama's reluctance to accept help on the oil spill you wonder if the spill is part of the plan to destroy the US? "In history, nothing happens by accident. If it happened, you can bet someone planned it."/ Franklin Delano Roosevelt Who Is George Soros? He brought the market down in 2 days. Here is what CBS' Mr. Steve Kroft's research has turned up. It's a bit of a read, and it took 4 months to put it together. [Rest of article here.]

Origin

The text reproduced above is the introductory section of an Internet-circulated version of a critical article about Hungarian-American business magnate George Soros. Although the piece has long been distributed with an introduction attributing authorship to CBS 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft, he did not write any portion of it. The original was an article penned by Jim O’Neill and published on 15 September 2009 under the title “Soros: Republic Enemy #1.” (That original version drew its information from a variety of sources which are hyperlinked within the article itself.)

The confusion arose because the original quoted a few lines from Steve Kroft’s interview with George Soros for the 20 December 1998 broadcast of 60 Minutes, and somewhere along the line a reader mistook that as an indication Kroft was the author of the entire article.
