Soros to Give $100 million to Human Rights Watch

Billionaire investor George Soros said today he will give $100 million to Human Rights Watch to further pursue its work internationally. Soros said it was especially important to make the organization, based in the U.S., more international in its administration because the U.S. has lost the moral high ground.

NPR’s Steve Inskeep also interviewed Soros on Morning Edition.
