The left wing group Media Matters exists to attack right wing news sources and to refute stories about people (and polices) on the left. The organization is biased and will defend a liberal (or liberal policy) and cast doubt on any accusation about the liberal (or policy) even when it is obvious that the liberal (or liberal policy) is wrong.
It should come as no surprise because this organization is set up to defend the liberal/progressive policies of the left and to cast doubt (or lie) about those on the right. It has a goal of bringing down FOX News.
I do not care what MM does because it has a right to exist and it has a right to say and write what it wants. It is up to others to wade through the lies and determine what is accurate and what is not. Or one could do as I do and ignore the site and what it writes. I only look at it when some liberal links to it to prove its point. You know how it is, a liberal finds a site that agrees with it and that site becomes the gospel for the liberal in question. All well and good.
I do however; have a problem with Media Matters being tax exempt. The organization does not meet the requirements for being tax exempt and it should not be getting away with, how should I put this so liberals will understand, oh yeah; not paying its fair share.
Charles Krauthammer is quoted in the Daily Caller as saying that Media Matters can be as nasty as it wants but it should not ask for government subsidies.
I know that it is a liberal organization so it would be nearly impossible for it to survive without government subsidy (see Air Amerika) though George Soros might throw even more money into the mix to keep his propaganda arm in service.
I also find it ironic (and hypocritical) that Media Matters is in business to push the liberal/progressive agenda and is on top of the phony stories about conservative tax policies or that the rich don’t pay their fair share blah, blah but is set up in a fashion so as to avoid paying taxes.
Typical liberal double standard. It should not be much of a surprise though considering the organization calls itself “Media Matters for America” and then proves daily that media only matters if it is left wing media. The cause of this nest of drones is to find conservative misinformation in print and broadcast media and to provide rapid responses to such misinformation. If media actually mattered then wouldn’t ALL media matter? No, this group does not care if you receive misinformation from the left because that helps to push the liberal agenda and helps them generate more mush heads who follow liberals.
So we should remove its tax exempt status and make it rename itself to “Only Left Wing Media Matters To Us.”
Never surrender, never submit.
