  • Sharyl Attkisson Dismisses Media Matters: ‘Paid, Left-Wing Blog’ [VIDEO]

    The Daily Caller ^ | 11/5/14 | Alex Griswold
    In an interview with Huffington Post Live, former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson hit back at criticism of her new book “Stonewalled” by the liberal group Media Matters, calling them a “paid left-wing blog” with close ties to President Obama and Hilary Clinton. Attkisson said that she was not disturbed by criticism from “…the usual suspects. I mean, that’s part of the game. There are entire industries set up that perpetuate and work with partners in the quasi-news media or just bloggers online…” (RELATED: Reporter Says Federal Government May Have Hacked Her Computer) Huffington Post Live host Alyona Minkovski asked Attkisson...

    I can’t believe I’m writing about “StopRush” again.Longtime readers will recall my extensive and groundbreaking research into the StopRush operation just after Limbaugh’s comments about Sandra Fluke in 2012, for which he apologized.I proved then that the operation — at least at that time — was a Media Matters astroturfed assault on Limbaugh’s advertiser base, based on a pre-existing plan just waiting for the right moment. Supposedly independent groups coordinated their efforts with an MMFA operative, and then tried to cover it up. My research led Limbaugh to activate his personal Twitter account to spread the results of my research....

Appearing on CNN’s Reliable Sources (transcript) Attkisson: “Media Matters, as my understanding, is a far left blog group that I think holds itself out to be sort of an independent watchdog group. And yes, they clearly targeted me at some point. They used to work with me on stories and tried to help me produce my stories, and at some point” (emphasis added) Well, well, well.

    After talk radio titan Rush Limbaugh mocked left-wing/birth control activist Sandra Fluke as a "slut" (something he later apologized for) the organized left thought they could finally silence The Most Listened To Talk Show Host in America by picking off his advertisers. The boycott, organized mostly by the left-wing Media Matters, can now officially be called a failure with the news that advertisers have not only returned, but that the show is pacing ahead of last year: "Rush Limbaugh’s distributor on Thursday said there is no denying the conservative radio host’s controversial comments about Sandra Fluke hurt advertising last year...

Hagel, who President Barack Obama tapped Monday as his nominee to head the Defense Department, is already under fire from critics who say he “has sought to distance the United States from Israel” during his career. According to a Foreign Policy magazine report Monday night, a substantial ad campaign aimed at swatting such attacks on Hagel is already underway, and gambling magnate Bill Benter

Recently one of their senior fellows, MJ Rosenberg, was forced to step down based on a history of harsh, anti-semitic remarks. Now it appears the line has been crossed again. Senior Media Maters Fellow Eric Boehlert has seemingly mocked Patricia Smith, the mother of slain State Department employee Sean Patrick Smith, who recently blamed President Barack Obama for her son’s death.

One of President Obama's deputy campaign managers, Stephanie Cutter, suggested that his Republican rival Mitt Romney might be a felon. And while some of the attacks seem to be a dig into the candidate's personal lives — such as a DNC ad featuring Mrs. Romney's horse — in 2008 then Senator Obama promised to fire anybody on his staff who did such negative attacks. “I have been very clear to my campaign.

    As we revealed yesterday, MJ Rosenberg wasn’t the only anti-Israel extremist working at Media Matters for America: Senior Fellow Eric Boehlert once downplayed genocidal anti-Semitism, routinely suggests that media coverage is too pro-Israel thanks to the intimidation by nefarious forces (hint hint), and defended terrorist professor Sami Al-Arian. Today, we examine Oliver Willis, a research fellow at Media Matters. Just like MJ and Eric, Willis is an anti-Israel extremist with a soft spot for anti-Semitism. Willis once referred to Paul Wolfowitz as “filthy” and Joe Lieberman as “fascistic.” He accused Israel of “Playing Games With American Lives” for building settlements,...

    MJ Rosenberg, the radical leftist who was recently ousted from his position at Media Matters for America, is now writing a blog where he continues to propagate his anti-Israel and anti-Jewish views. He wrote on Monday that the most “ridiculous (and insulting) White House pander came at Hanukah” when kosher food was served at a high-profile event. He references a New York Times article, which describes “A Lubavitch SWAT team” expunging the kitchen of all traces of non-kosher food, and proclaims that such actions are merely attempts at appeasing Jewish voters, while treating them as if they “just arrived from...
  • BREAKING: MJ Rosenberg OUT At Media Matters

    Media Matters For America's Jew-Hater-In-Chief is out! I believe he was pushed. His promise to stop using the Anti-Semitic term Israel-firster made at the beginning of March did not take the pressure off, himself or that of MMFA. But I will do so without using the term "Israel Firster." The term was coined in 1960 by the late Abram Leon Sachar, founding President of Brandeis University, and a renowned Jewish historian (his son Howard Morley Sachar remains the greatest historian of contemporary Jewry) and was first used by the elder Sachar in a speech he delivered that year to a...

The Daily Caller has published a report linking Media Matters for America to the anti-American, anti-Israel news network Al-Jazeera, primarily through the work of author M.J.

Media Matters Action Network senior foreign policy fellow MJ Rosenberg’s column for the liberal organization regularly appears on Al-Jazeera’s website and, in 2010, Rosenberg represented Media Matters at a forum hosted by Al-Jazeera in Doha, Qatar where he praised the news outlet as “mainstream.” Media Matters Action Network is part of the organization’s political arm. According to two Daily Caller sources, the then-director general of Al-Jazeera Wadah Khanfar, also visited Media Matters’ offices in Washington in 2010

In an acrimonious lawsuit settled at the end of last year, Brock accused William Grey of making repeated threats to expose him to the "scorn or ridicule of his employees, donors and the press in demanding money and property." Brock claimed in legal papers that he sold a Rehoboth Beach, Del., home he once shared with Grey in...

But Smith curiously withheld key parts of the 89-page document when he published his story, “Media Matters’ war against Fox,” in March 2011. The Daily Caller became aware of this after obtaining the same document while reporting the series “Inside Media Matters,” which debuted here late Sunday night.

    Not all George Soros-funded groups are alike. Both Center For American Progress (CAP) and the “media watchdog” it helped to create, Media Matters for America (MMFA), have been roundly criticized for their use of anti-Semitic memes. Most recently the focus has been on the use of the term “Israel-firster” a term meant to portray Jewish Americans as somehow less loyal to the United States than other religious groups. While CAP seems to have taken the charges to heart, and is seeking to change its ways, the Obama/Soros-”firsters” at MMFA are digging in their heels. This dual-loyalty charge, like most anti-Semitic...

From Politico (emphasis added): The Center for American Progress, the party’s key hub of ideas and strategy, and Media Matters, a central messaging organization, have emerged as vocal critics of their party’s staunchly pro-Israel congressional leadership and have been at odds, at times, with Barack Obama’s White House, which has acted...

They use an example given in Howard Kurtz’s article “Partisan Organizations Use Sound Bite Warfare” wherein Kurtz describes the “bat signal” given out by MMFA. This coordinated attack sprung from Governor Mike Huckabee making a remark on a radio show about Natalie Portman’s pregnancy and how he thought she was “boasting” about unwed motherhood: Media Matters mission, and what presumably allows them the tax exempt 501(c)(3) status, is as follows: Media Matters...

    Media Matters blamed the Egyptian crisis today on the US Jewish lobby and media-owning Jews. Yid With Lid reported this from Media Matters. If one needs additional proof that the “pro-Israel” lobby and the policies it dictates to US policymakers are bad for both the U.S. and Israel, look no further than what is happening in Egypt. The regime that the Israeli government and its U.S. lobby have depended upon to enforce the status quo is going down. It is not clear when, but it’s going to be soon, much sooner than anyone ever anticipated. And you can be sure...

    The George Soros funded Media Matters has been waging a months-long attack on Glenn Beck trying to brand the commentator as a card carrying anti-Semite. Perhaps before making false charges against Beck, Media Matters should examine its own house of cards. In a column published today on Media Matters political correction site, MJ Rosenberg claimed that the current Egyptian crisis was the fault of AIPAC and the “Israel Lobby.” For those of you who have lived on a different planet till today, “Israel Lobby” is a polite way of saying “Jews.”

    Ever since the shellacking Democrats suffered in the midterms, their strategists and donors have been meeting to discuss plans for 2012. Tuesday, the New York Times reported on the latest high profile effort by David Brock, head of Media Matters: David Brock, a prominent Democratic political operative, says he has amassed $4 million in pledges over the last few weeks and is moving quickly to hire a staff to set up what he hopes will become a permanent liberal counterweight over the airwaves to the Republican-leaning

    Karl Marx: (Direct Quote) "The Theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence. Abolish All Private Property." Marx is considered the Founding Father for the Obama/Soros concept of Open-Society The American public overwhelmingly voted for Socialism when they elected President Obama. Al Sharpton, 3/22/2010Media Matters is convinced the multitude of problems Obama Socialism and the Progressive movement faces is the result of Glenn Beck and the crew at Fox News; sadly, they forget that Obama might be partially responsible for his own shortcomings and incompetence, for without Fearless Reader's bungling of the economy and the rejection of...

    American Thinker ^ | 9/20/10 | Thomas Lifson
    The Soros-funded empire strikes back. Media Matters rushes to defend Barack Obama's editing of the Declaration of Independence, a story that American Thinker first broke nationally Saturday morning, and which has now spread to other conservative sites, talk radio, but so far no mainstream media. Media Matters chooses to mock those who noticed, rather than deal with the awkward question of exactly why the President of the United States would balk at noting that our rights come from our Creator, not from the goodwill of the government.

    Last week, Nina Easton, the Washington editor of Fortune, wrote a column about the SEIU and National People’s Action. The two progressive groups had sent roughly 500 protesters to Easton’s Chevy Chase neighborhood on May 16th to picket the front yard of Bank of America’s Greg Baer. Easton had just put her 2-year-old son down for a nap, and stepped outside to ask the protesters to quiet down. They didn’t. Easton wrote a column. And now she’s become the target of the SEIU and Media Matters for America.

    Washington Post ^ | April 27th, 2008 | Chris Cillizza and Shailagh Murray
    Election after election, when all the obvious story lines are exhausted, the media tend to turn to an oldie but goody: "Will this be the race where young people finally start voting?" Youth vote advocates insist that young people are more dialed in than ever this year, while political hacks who have been in the business for decades roll their eyes at the notion. Given that, The Fix recognizes the danger in making the following statement: The youth vote will matter in 2008. A look back over last few months shows a massive increase in youth (people ages 18 through...

    I get a lot of e-mail every day, and I try to read it all even though I can't possibly respond to each message. Most of the messages consist of promotional e-mails, some are spam, and others are personal messages from friends, but occasionally I get earnest questions about topics under discussion that require more than a one-on-one reply. CapQ reader Edward S sent me a question on pork, and why we should consider it such a problem. In part, here is Edward's question: I am a Republican and regular reader of conservative blogs, and I see that the earmarks...

    ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE, Md., May 18, 2007 – Ask someone serving in the military, and you might be surprised to hear them tell you just how much Armed Forces Day means to them. As the country commemorates its 57th Armed Forces Day tomorrow, soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines say they’re grateful for a special day set aside to recognize them and their service. It’s particularly important, they say, while the country is at war. After 14 years in the Army and two deployments to the Middle East, Army Sgt. Robert Clark said he welcomes a day honoring the...
