Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton Told YearlyKos Convention She Helped Start Media Matters
Posted on 10/01/2007 5:44:12 PM PDT by lowbridge
As NewsBusters reported Sunday, the leftwing organization responsible for the recent smear campaigns against Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly, Media Matters, has direct ties to the Clintons.
To be sure, folks on the left, and in the media that support them, will either deny this connection, or ignore it.
In the end, that's going to be hard to do, for on August 4, while speaking at the YearlyKos convention in Chicago, the junior senator from New York proudly stated, "institutions that I helped to start and support like Media Matters and Center for American Progress."
Our friend Mike Church has been kind enough to provide the following audio of this segment of her speech that day (partial transcript to follow). Those interested can also view the video available here (relevant section at 2:20):
We are certainly better prepared and more focused on, you know, taking our arguments, and making them effective, and disseminating them widely, and really putting together a network, uh, in the blogosphere, in a lot of the new progressive infrastructure, institutions that I helped to start and support like Media Matters and Center for American Progress.
Sounds like the junior senator confirmed my contention from Sunday: "Hillary and her backers have created an advocacy network whose expressed goal is to take down all of her critics in the media.
You know, we're beginning to match what I had said for years was the advantage of the other side. Uh, you know, when I made that comment about the vast right-wing conspiracy, I wasn't kidding. Uh, what I never could have predicted is that it was not a conspiracy, it was just wide open and out there for everybody to see.
Well, Senator, it now appears that the advocacy network you "helped to start and support" is wide open and out there for everybody to see.
Talk about your inconvenient truths!

What does Media Matters do besides attack conservatives?
The Democrats in Congress are no more than a collection of underhanded liars who garner votes by promising to give people money.
She does not want to have to deal with them before the presidential election.
Funnel Soros money to Democrats
She helped Algore invent the internet too.
So if the lawsuits target Media Matters they’ll sweep up the Hildabeast.
Hmmm... this could leave another big mark...or peter...or paul...
Created by Hillary. Funded by Soros.

Pump money into the beast's campaign.
One-time Clinton basher becomes a key defender

David Brock, the reformed right-wing reporter who once took aim at Hillary Rodham Clinton, has cultivated surprisingly deep ties to the senator - paying $200,000 to a Clinton confidant for working at his watchdog group, Media Matters.
So people who disagree with Hillary are what she refers to as the “right wing noise machine.”
I would love to hear a debate between her and Zell Miller. Wouldn’t that be a hoot!?
She owns helping start Media Matters at 2:46
One of the key witnesses to be called in Paul v Clinton is Kelly Craighead, one of Hillary’s most senior aides. I reported some time ago that Craighead was instrumental in setting up Media Matters. Yes, it was set up with Soros money to get Hillary into the White House. Soros is an incredible danger to this republic.
