The Washington D.C. - based Daily Caller has started a multi-part report (Inside Media Matters: Sources, memos reveal erratic behavior, close coordination with White House and news organizations) focused on the inner workings of the hard-left intimidation tool, Media Matters. It is well worth a read - if only to confirm what most conservatives who go beyond headlines already know: Media Matters works hand-in-hand with the biased and agenda-driven press and the Obama administration to silence anyone who doesn’t toe the party line.

Founded by comrade David Brock in 2004, Media Matters monitors talk radio and the unaligned press to search out and destroy non-compliant voices of the reasonable American majority.

An example from today’s first report: “The group scored its first significant public coup in 2007 with the firing of host Don Imus from MSNBC. Just before Easter that year, a Media Matters employee recorded Imus’s now-famous attack on the Rutgers women’s basketball team immediately recognized its inflammatory potential. The organization swung into action, notifying organizations like the NAACP, the National Association of Black Journalists, and Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, all of which joined the fight.

Over the course of a week, Media Matters mobilized more than 50 people to work full-time adding fuel to the Imus story. Researchers searched the massive Media Matters database for controversial statements Imus had made over the years. The group issued press release after press release. Brock personally called the heads of various liberal activist groups to coordinate a message. By the end of the week, Imus was fired.

The Daily Caller also reports that “according to an internal memo obtained by The DC, Media Matters intends to spend nearly $20 million in 2012 to influence news coverage."

It is only February, but it would seem that their efforts have already paid off handsomely.

“In its short history, Media Matters has established itself as one of the most vocal and irresponsible combat organs of the Democratic Party” says Jacob Laksin at Discover the Networks and has produced a very insightful page on Media Matters HERE – which is a don’t miss as well.

Don’t say you weren’t warned.

It is a long and well known pattern... it takes covert operatives to appear to be unattached to each other to begin the cry and the hoots to discredit someone or something. That is the COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS focus. They take a small piece of thread and present it as whole cloth. If people would pay attention they could see the worn and ragged ends, unmatched seams. However, it requires a good eye and an understanding of how the other side plays the game to discern this. To do that would mean taking time away from football, reality TV and all that stuff. most just can't be bothered... until it is their ox being gored.
