Soros Sponsored “Media Matters”
A Leftist Propaganda Arm!
Welcome to the Progressive’s America! Progressive is the new name for the Liberal Democrats, but it really doesn’t describe who these anti-Americans are. They are fully revealing themselves now. They are no longer confined to basements, closets, or underground newspapers. They are in our faces, daily. Their members are a mixed bag of communists, socialists, fascists, anarchists, terrorists, environmentalists, atheists, and whatever other groups despise the USA and all she stands for. If they are associated with a “ISM”, they are anti-capitalists, anti-American, and anti-U.S.A.! They are the followers and supporters of Marx, Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Che, Chavez, and other despotic tyrants.
The main face of the Anti-American Left is our usurper pResident, Obama. The Marxist/communist coup began with the election in 2008 of an ineligible candidate, and was followed by his appointments of czars, and other radicals who now inhabit every agency within the administration. Like a cancer, they have spread their radical views that are the antithesis of what our country was founded upon. Those American ideals of liberty, freedom, and justice for all are not their ideals. Their membership consists of the vile, amoral, bereft, and abject misfits. They are the dregs of society, its malcontents and its revolutionary radicals.
These ism believers mask their agenda under the guise of being for the equality of the poor, the middle class, or the downtrodden. When in fact, they could care less about their needs and wants. The “isms” need those powerless groups to listen, respond and follow them. That is how they are expecting to attain the power to control them and their lives. The isms cajole, offer handouts, teach and train their followers. They speak to their basic needs of food and shelter and to their wants by offering freebies. The isms have no desire to see these groups rise in prosperity or education for that would thwart their agenda. Educated people aren’t easily swayed, aren’t easily programmed, and can debate them and their archaic, misinformed ideas. The educated and prosperous have no need for the collective agenda that they espouse. The wealthy ism-ers expect to control the masses much like the wealthy slave owners of the past controlled the lives of their slaves.
Our awareness of the radical left and their reemergence has been astounding. Hundreds upon hundreds of anti-American organizations and “progressive” websites like Media Matters, The Daily Kos, and Dr. Conspiracy have been given a voice in today’s news, and those voices are echoed by the MSM and all of the alphabet stations. These radical revolutionaries, who are a minority within the population of the U.S., are penetrating the airwaves, our newspapers, and internet sites. They are writing, saying, and printing their views to make it appear that their opinions are what the majority believes. The worst of the worst have infiltrated our government. The rabid mouthpieces conspire and converse daily with the White House administration to slant the news in opposition to what is really occurring in our nation and in the world. Then, in unison, they spread their talking points, lies, fabrications, and disinformation via media puppets in TV, radio, newspaper and blogs. That is propaganda. Straight Up!
Propaganda in its most vile form was used by Adolph Hitler during his rise to power in Nazi Germany. Much like what was done during that era we see occurring in our country. The educated among us recognize the use of colors by the Obama’s in their election night attire, black and red. We recognize the chants being taught to elementary school children as indoctrination. We know when we see the attempts to destroy religious tenets by regulations to be a communist goal. We know the difference when we see a Christmas bulb on the White House tree with Mao’s face and that its communist symbolism is not one associated with the Christian tradition. We know when they have erased historical information and changed the facts. We can determine truth from lies when the information fed to us doesn’t add up. We know when a cover-up has occurred regarding Obama’s background. We can recognize corruption and treason. We are not the feeble-minded who will accept whatever the propagandists use as fodder for the less knowledgeable who are their unwitting pawns.
What is propaganda? From the Oxford Dictionary:
1. [mass noun] information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote a political cause or point of view: he was charged with distributing enemy propaganda
* the dissemination of propaganda as a political strategy: the party’s leaders believed that a long period of education and propaganda would be necessary.
Let’s see what the obots at Wiki say:
Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position.
As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda, in its most basic sense, presents information primarily to influence an audience.
Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus possibly lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or uses loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. The desired result is a change of the attitude toward the subject in the target audience to further a political agenda. Propaganda can be used as a form of political warfare.
Why are so many of us aware of propaganda’s intentions and how and when it was used? By studying history, we were introduced to the man responsible for the many dastardly deeds during WWII. He and his associates were responsible for the worst atrocities known to man. A study of Adolph Hitler’s Mein Kampf, Chapter IV, “War Propaganda,” gives his map for acquiring power through the use of propaganda.
“Propaganda is a means and must, therefore, be judged in relation to the end it is intended to serve.”
The very epitome of the words ” a means to an end” are exemplified in how Hitler rose to power, and likewise how Obama rose from obscurity to occupying the White House. Hitler’s use of propaganda was used in an attempt to overthrow a continent of human beings while building and perfecting his idea of the perfect human, a world consisting of an Aryan race. His means to that end was accomplished by exterminating a specific race he found wanting and disposable, and having others perform radical and dangerous experiments on captured, innocent humans.
Hitler rose to power with slogans like ‘‘Blut und Ehre”, which means blood and honor, and “Heil Hitler”. Obama rose to power by hypnotizing the masses through NLP Hynotic programming in conjunction with little slogans, i.e., “Yes We Can,” “Hope,” and “Change.” Words that meant something to everyone, but meant nothing in reality. They were empty words coming from an empty vessel. The MSM carried the Obama meme and perpetrated his rise by not investigating him, his associates, or his background. Obama’s advertising agents and the MSM were the reason for his meteoric rise to the presidency from nothing and from nowhere. The stories that were spun, the lies that were told, all amounted to pure, unadulterated propaganda. He became the unknown man from nowhere to somewhere. The ism group has condoned his criminal behavior as they accept all immoral acts and activities. Lying, stealing, cheating, bribing, threatening, intimidating, killing, and robbing are acceptable activities to the isms because “the end justifies the means.”
Read a few translated chapters from Hitler, and see if a chill doesn’t run up your spine. Watch for the correlations between Hitler then and Obama now. Remember how Obama talks down to his audience, and how he thinks he hasn’t explained something well enough for the idiot peasants to understand? A quick review of Hitler’s discussion on propaganda and its use will give you a glimpse into the mindset of the maniac, as well as into the intended use of the propaganda machine that is being used by sites like Media Matters to destroy America, its institutions, and patriotic Americans who oppose the ism agenda.
Directly from Hitler:
But when nations are fighting for their existence on this earth, when the question of ‘to be or not to be’ has to be answered, then all humane and aesthetic considerations must be set aside; for these ideals do not exist of themselves somewhere in the air but are the product of man’s creative imagination and disappear when he disappears.
The situation is the same in regard to what we understand by the word, propaganda. The purpose of propaganda is not the personal instruction of the individual, but rather to attract public attention to certain things, the importance of which can be brought home to the masses only by this means.
Here the art of propaganda consists in putting a matter so clearly and forcibly before the minds of the people as to create a general conviction regarding the reality of a certain fact, the necessity of certain things and the just character of something that is essential. But as this art is not an end in itself and because its purpose must be exactly that of the advertisement poster, to attract the attention of the masses and not by any means to dispense individual instructions to those who already have an educated opinion on things or who wish to form such an opinion on grounds of objective study – because that is not the purpose of propaganda, it must appeal to the feelings of the public rather than to their reasoning powers.
All propaganda must be presented in a popular form and must fix its intellectual level so as not to be above the heads of the least intellectual of those to whom it is directed. Thus its purely intellectual level will have to be that of the lowest mental common denominator among the public it is desired to reach. When there is question of bringing a whole nation within the circle of its influence, as happens in the case of war propaganda, then too much attention cannot be paid to the necessity of avoiding a high level, which presupposes a relatively high degree of intelligence among the public.
The receptive powers of the masses are very restricted, and their understanding is feeble. On the other hand, they quickly forget. Such being the case, all effective propaganda must be confined to a few bare essentials and those must be expressed as far as possible in stereotyped formulas. These slogans should be persistently repeated until the very last individual has come to grasp the idea that has been put forward.
Those of us with brains and analytical skills are able to see the Left’s warped objectives and goals. We see their browbeating of disinformation. Fortunately, we won’t be swayed by an insignificant minority of radicals and revolutionaries. They have powerful sponsors, backers, journalists, newscasters, and bloggers in their pockets. They have a network of paid basement dwelling obots called and twittered into action to attack anyone opposing or objecting whatever Obama and the regime spouts as truth when it is a bold-faced lie. These people are filled with hate and need enemies to get their message across. Anyone or any organization will do. Obama proves it. He will pick an enemy du jour, and try to destroy it, marginalize anyone associated with it, while acting like he isn’t. His latest enemy of choice, the Catholic Church. Good luck on that attack!
They are policing our words, and it is time to police theirs. They don’t have the right to dictate and change word meanings to suit their agenda. One example is how they want to eliminate the clarification words that describe a terrorist, Muslims. Start saying it the way it is and the way that has meaning. It was a terrorist attack that killed soldiers at Ft. Hood, it was not work place violence as the Left tried to paint it. Army Doctor Nidal Malik Hasan killed 12 soldiers and wounded 30. Our gallant soldiers were killed and maimed by a Muslim who infiltrated our army and killed our soldiers in a premeditated jihadist attack.
Another glaring example, is how they leave out the democratic party name of those who are caught in criminal acts. Yet with Republicans, they mention the party repeatedly. Democrat information is purposely not reported or moved to the last pages in newspapers. Republican deeds are front page news.
Demand that the truth about the ballot challenges be told. Obama believed he was above the law and didn’t answer a subpoena. A U.S. President was supposed to prove his eligibility in court! That wasn’t reported until a judge in Georgia ruled for a usurper who wasn’t in court. Instead, he was in contempt of court, and yet the judge ruled in his favor. The judge lost the title of Honorable when he signed that decision. Write letters to the hometown editors and tell them to start reporting the news. That was huge news and it went unreported.
It is up to us to use the same tactics on them as have been used on us. It is already proven that the Left can dish it out, but can’t take it. This may not be the Christian way of dealing with them, but our rule book for turning the other cheek isn’t working. We can no longer allow the minority to be the voice that is heard; they must be silenced by ridicule and exposure if our nation is to survive. Their propaganda must be attacked everywhere.
If we didn’t know we were in a war against our nation, against our beloved country, we do now. We will not let the minority of radicals and their paid sycophants destroy people and organizations in their pursuit of a failed ideology and power. Their intentions are not ours. The isms are on the wrong side and those who follow and support them and their goals represent evil. They thrive by using criminal methods and indulging in unacceptable societal behavior. They corrupt everything they touch. They are our enemies as much as those who our brave men and women have fought against across the world. They are here, now.
How do we stop them? By intimidating them and boycotting their sites. We expose the leaders and their bots where they voice their lies, we stop giving them a voice on right-wing blogs. We pound the cable networks to discontinue their lies and hold them accountable for their news and views. We write to the editors of newspapers. Identify the offenders wherever they are, and wherever they write. We can continue to send letters to Congress knowing they won’t respond, but they will get the message when you say no money is coming your way until… Let all of these organizations, agencies, networks, media outlets feel the full force of the true patriots. This is not the time to give up, it is the time to dig in and make a difference. Make no mistake, we are in a war of words and ideology!
Make a vow to protect and defend America today. Imagine if everyday, all patriots put just two comments on left-wing blogs from now until the election. Imagine the impact. We are the real grassroots and we need to eradicate the major poisonous weed producers like Media Matters and their associated liars and propaganda pushers. This is not the time for feeling helpless or hopeless, this is the time to get out some weed killer. If we don’t get at their roots, they will just regenerate and pop up again. Make a plan, plot it, and put it into action. We will be thrilled to hear your plan of attack.
Truthful media does matter! It is our voices that need full exposure! Our words are not propaganda, our voices are honest and true.
Has the Right done unto them as they have done to so many? Not a peep from Media Matters or their associates. Guess they don’t like this kind of spotlight turned on them. Keep it up Daily Caller and Aaron! The Rats Scurry for cover!
Has America’s top leftist been neutered?
Anti-Fox, anti-WND group silent since scandal tied to Obama
Aaron Klein Feb 23 Snips
The embattled Media Matters for America has not responded to a series of reports documenting the organization’s purported unusual tactics, including compiling a de facto enemies list; announcing an all-out campaign of “guerrilla warfare and sabotage” aimed at the Fox News Channel; and reportedly seeking to investigate the personal lives of reporters and news personalities.
The information came amid reports White House staffers held regular meetings and even a weekly conference call with Media Matters.
The progressive media organization is usually rife with attack pieces on WND, Fox News and the Daily Caller. However, it hasn’t made a peep in response to the ongoing controversy being pursued by those news organizations.
A section at Media Matters’ main website titled “Fox Attacks Media Matters” has not been updated since Feb. 8, before the Daily Caller began releasing a series of investigative reports on Media Matters.
The Fox News Channel has since aired numerous segments on Media Matters, yet none were posted on Media Matters website, which has until now been regular practice.
Yay. Thanks for the Hitler quotes; I love using them when the scum bags at college call me a Nazi for supporting the rule of law and equal justice. Media Matters is a criminal entity just as the AFL CIO, ACORN, and the SEIU are. They should either be RICO’d into life terms in San Quentin, or executed on site by the Naitonal Guard.
Tip toeing through the corruption – Jay the Toadie is saying nothing again.
Tapper to Carney: Admin is “aggressively trying to stop aggressive journalism”
February 23, 2012
First, just watch the video. (at URL) Pay special attention to the woman in the horn-rimmed glasses behind Tapper’s left shoulder; her expressions are priceless! She must not be such a fan of aggressive journalism herself:
To review: ABC’s Tapper actually hit the White House with all of these lines:
“How does that square with the fact that this administration has been so aggressively trying to stop aggressive journalism in the United States by using the Espionage Act to take whistleblowers to court?”
“You want aggressive journalism abroad; you just don’t want it in the United States.”
“So the truth should come out abroad; it shouldn’t come out here?”
Jake Tapper specifically mentioned the case of the administration suing a CIA officer for allegedly providing information about CIA torture. I can think of a couple other occasions in which the administration treated whistleblowers unjustifiably harshly and/or refused to cooperate with innocently inquiring journalists. Incidentally, the White House website — touted as such a triumph of transparency — doesn’t even have a link to a form to submit media requests. The most transparently transparent administration ever is also the administration that has stonewalled investigations into Fast and Furious, Solyndra and other real scandals. Conveniently for the administration, the MSM has largely ignored these scandals as well. Not Jake Tapper. Good for him for taking Carney to task.
Carney ? Sorry he may be at my circus.
Renee just tipped me to this story and it’s too good not to share. Whoopsie!
“David Brock, CEO of the George Soros-backed website Media Matters, dished out $850,000 to an ex-domestic partner after he was threatened with “damaging information involving the organization’s donors and the IRS,” according Fox News.
In a lawsuit settled last year, Brock accused William Grey, his former domestic partner, of repeatedly threatening to expose him to the “scorn or ridicule of his employees, donors and the press in demanding money and property.”
The Media Matters CEO claims he was forced to sell his Rehoboth Beach, DE, home in order to meet Grey’s demands. Grey responded to Brock’s lawsuit by denying that he “committed any ‘acts of blackmail.’”
“Brock’s bitter legal battle with Grey, who is described in a Sept. 14, 2010, police report…as his domestic partner of more than 10 years, began after Brock began dating Washington, D.C., restaurant impresario James Alefantis about five years ago,” Fox News reports.”
“Almost two years later, Grey accused Brock of “financial malfeasance” and threatened to sabotage Brock’s fundraising efforts.
“Next step is I contact all your donors and the IRS,” Grey wrote in an email dated May 19, 2010. “This is going to stink for you if you do not resolve this now.”
Brock claims that he made the payout to Grey “under duress.”
“On March 8, 2011, Brock filed his own suit against Grey for more than $4 million, demanding Grey return the $850,000, plus pay millions more in punitive damages,” Fox reports. “The two settled two months ago under terms that remain confidential.”
Brock, as many Blaze readers know, has come under fire due to reports that his supposed non-profit website has allegedly been working with top Democrats — a blatant violation of its tax-exempt status. Perhaps Grey knew a little something about this. It would certainly explain why the Media Matters CEO (who makes $300,000 a year) was willing to sell his vacation home and dish out $850,000 to make it all go away.”
You beat me to it. I was going to post this information too! Different source. FOX. This one has URL’s to the court filings, etc. FOX is following this just because of all the problems Media Matters has caused them or tried to cause them. I am still looking for someone that has gotten ahold of Brock’s new book to see if they hired investigators.
Media Matters boss paid ex-partner $850,000 ‘blackmail’
February 27, 2012
Ha, ha. Payback time! Using their own tactics against them. Live by the private investigator, “die” by the private investigator. 🙂
obots be playing games! I clicked your link, Bridgette, and instead of it going to Fox it went to some obot screen that said, “we interrupt your regularly scheduled” whatever. I didn’t stay there, so didn’t read the site. I was taken aback because it was redirected from Fox about Media Matters. Hmm. I wonder if this Grey dude knows Tucker Carlson? 🙂
Whoops! I didn’t read closely enough. Of course he knows Tucker:
“‘Please finish this today so I don’t have to waste my time emailing anyone – Biden, Coulter, Carlson, Huffington, Drudge, Ingraham,’ Grey wrote in a 2008 email.”
Bridgette’s link is working fine now. I don’t know how that happened but it was only momentary. Next time I tried the link, it worked fine.
You’re are so right. Payback is a real @itch when the tables are turned! Divorces are so messy! How does it feel David Brock?
For your reading pleasure!

Brock…what’s in a name no Miri ? Let’s see if any other BRACH names start popping up again too…I guess their spats are expensive…
Funny yesterday I thought about you when I found Sharel Lovia Payne , a lawyer in Georgia with a Brockstein dude as a partner in money laundering, real estate fraud,wire fraud….associated with “the Payne Group” She was in a list of names somebody posted judges and lawyers with violations. Stolen ID’s,soc. security numbers, false addresses….the whole nine yards in Georgia…..just like what I felt like I was seeing when researching names.
Sounds like it will be on the half-price books’ bargain tables.
Brock Book Admits Left’s Defeat by Fox
By Jeffrey Lord on 2.23.12 Snips
This book is nothing but what used to be called a cut-and-paste job. Old news and older news repackaged and marketed as some inside scoop. Oh sure, they name names. Have you ever heard of Sean Hannity? Did you know he’s a conservative? You will now.
So. In short? Nothing new in Brock’s book, much less scurrilous
This writer cleverly wonders whether Fluk coordinated her tactics with the WH via Media Matters. A compelling case for “yes”.
“Liberal activist Sandra Fluke made her case to the mostly female audience of the ABC show “The View,” where she claimed —apparently without irony— that she is being silenced by Rush Limbaugh. She also gave a significant clue that her “stunned” sense of outrage seems to be a scripted part of a larger narrative trifecta: supporting Obamacare, destroying religious liberty and silencing the right.
Anyone who follows the Institutional Left was probably suspicious when President Obama called Ms. Fluke on the phone in his unofficial role as Community Organizer in Chief. I scoured the history books and can’t find another case of a sitting president personally contacting a US citizen because a radio talk show host had said something about them that hurt their feelings. Certainly, President Obama made no such called to Laura Ingraham when MSNBC’s Ed Schultz called her a slut. Ms. Fluke described the President as “kind.”
However, Ms. Fluke pulled back the curtain midway through her interview on “The View” when she suggested that viewers head over to the website of Media Matters for America. As The Daily Caller recently exposed, there’s been a high level of coordination between the White House and Media Matters for America, so of course it’s no shock that Ms. Fluke chose MMFA as her leftist propaganda arm of choice.
One of Media Matters’s main jobs has been shutting down right wing media voices were ever possible. They want a world with no Breitbart.com, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh or any dissenting voices in the run-up to the 2012 election. The level of coordination should concern anyone because it’s the president using his position and bully pulpit as a way to quell criticism by utilizing the Institutional Left’s infrastructure.”
If you don’t think their goal is to SILENCE opposing voices and destroy the FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS of EVERYONE to SPEAK, check out the cartoon with this story: http://www.stltoday.com/news/opinion/columns/the-platform/editorial-rush-limbaugh-s-greatest-hit/article_1f2f2bc5-bb70-51cf-a41e-ae68a9688854.html
So much for honoring Civil Rights, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, Tolerance, Diversity, Free Speech, Freedom of the Press. Rights, in their minds, belong only to those who think and believe what progressives think and believe. The only right they honor is their belief in the “right” of themselves, the “right thinkers”, to decide HOW YOU WILL THINK, BELIEVE, AND LIVE.
In their world, THE ELITES, THE INTELLECTUALS, YOUR BETTERS, WILL TELL YOU WHAT TO SEE, HEAR, AND SPEAK.
Head on over to Media Matters……people should quit watching the view TOO!. Obama probably secretly attends Ms. Flukes Gender meetings. Maybe Ms. Flukey could have a sit down at the white house and an interview with Obama and his transgender friend Turdi. They could solve a whole host of problems and reminisce too. Or aybe the View could stage a surprise visit with his cook Turdi. Wouldn’t that be slendid? I bet he’d need a whole box of kleenes for that one.
Or better yet , remember that show “This is Your Life”? Oh man, I’d love that show with Obama and all the people that might show up for that (or then again maybe no one would show). O even better the old show “Queen for A Day”. Oh yeah, I can see it now “king for a day….and at the end they’d put that giant crown on his head, give him a giant bouquet of Flowers and send him off on a slow boat to China or wherever the heck he’s from.
That would be priceless! This is Your Life, Barry Soetoro, or whoever you are. Queen for a Day! ROFL. Turdi can come on in one of his flowered kimonos to crown him.
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (any relation to Ed?) rears her nappy head. One would think she’d be hanging it in shame,
given the escapades of her parents. [Correction.] But, no. She criticizes Rush after going on Bill Maher’s show herself, only a few months ago. Guess she doesn’t hear what Bill calls women, and, imho, the t-word and the c-word are far worse than the s-word. http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2012/03/04/wasserman-schultz-says-calling-women-sluts-isnt-funny-so-why-did-she

Now Rush Limbaugh calls someone ‘jock itch’
‘Terrorist’ campaign continues against radio giant
PALM BEACH, Fla. – In the wake of leftist attacks on his radio show and advertisers, radio giant Rush Limbaugh today described those leading the campaign against him in a unique way.
“Media Matters is like jock itch,” Limbaugh declared. “You ever had jock itch?” “It’s a chafing little rash in there. That’s all they are. That’s as serious as it is. Yeah, just a bunch of little twerps sittin’ around with nothing better to do, trying to occupy themselves.”
“They’re just jock itch, folks, pure and simple. [Media Matters chief] David Brock is jock itch, and any of these other people whose names come out are just jock itch. That’s all it is.”
While a handful of national advertisers parted ways with Limbaugh when the controversy was raging, some have already returned, with one “practically begging to come back,” according to Limbaugh.
“There’s a fake boycott,” Limbaugh said. “There’s no advertiser boycott. There’s no consumer boycott going on. There’s something being made to look like it is. It’s as phony and ginned up as the Occupy Wall Street movement is.”
Last week, one of Limbaugh’s advertisers, Mark Stevens, appeared on the Fox Business Channel to say he was the victim of a coordinated attack simply because he spent money on Limbaugh’s show. Limbaugh named the group as being Media Matters.
“What I’d like to say is that what is not known about this is this is not a boycott,” Stevens told Fox’s Stuart Varney. “That is a polite term for organized terrorist activity that is descending on people, on businesses that are advertising on Rush, and it’s part of the larger war on business in America today.”
Stevens appeared again today on the Fox News Channel with Megyn Kelly, and was asked if his being targeted was a concern to him.
“Absolutely no concern. Let them come,” he said. “Something is going on here that has to be addressed because the country’s at risk. If I can’t advertise where I want to advertise my business because of a small group of people – we can tell because the vast majority of emails are in support of us, Rush, America.”
And when he was asked what he planned to do next with Limbaugh’s show, Stevens responded, “Advertise more heavily. Stand my ground. Absolutely not give in in no way; no quarter to those who will intimidate me and my company, and if I can do anything else for others, try to be the bulwark that stands in the way of this terrorist activity because I love the country and it’s got to stop.”

TY Mr. Stevens! A real American and a patriot. SOMEBODY MUST stand up against this terrorist neo-mafia.
Jock itch! 🙂
Emails reveal Justice Dept. regularly enlists Media Matters to spin press
Internal Department of Justice emails obtained by The Daily Caller show Attorney General Eric Holder’s communications staff has collaborated with the left-wing advocacy group Media Matters for America in an attempt to quell news stories about scandals plaguing Holder and America’s top law enforcement agency. Dozens of pages of emails between DOJ Office of Public Affairs Director Tracy Schmaler and Media Matters staffers show Schmaler, Holder’s top press defender, working with Media Matters to attack reporters covering DOJ scandals. TheDC obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act request.
Emails sent in September and November 2010 show Schmaler working with Media Matters staffer Jeremy Holden on attacking news coverage of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation scandal. Holden attacked former DOJ Civil Rights Division attorneys J. Christian Adams and Hans von Spakovsky on Sept. 20, 2010 for what he called an attempt “to reignite the phony New Black Panther Party scandal.” Before Holden posted his article at 7:52 p.m., Schmaler sent him several emails with information helping him attack both former DOJ oficials.
“Here’s one Wolf letter,” read the subject of one email Schmaler sent Holden that contained no text. The email was likely a reference to Virginia Republican Rep. Frank Wolf, a member of Congress who led the Republican charge on the New Black Panther Party scandal involving alleged voter intimidation at a November 2008 polling place in Philadelphia. In response, Holden told Schmaler that “The response to interog 38 is particularly helpful. Thanks!” Interrogatory 38 was a reference to a question from Congress that the Justice Department answered, concerning the role of several senior officials in discussing litigation related to that voter intimidation case.
A follow-up email shows Schmaler sending Holden more information.
“[H]ere’s another one to Smith,” Schmaler wrote. “[I]t’s about perrelli contact with w. WH. helpful in that it makes clear perrelli didn’t have discussions w/ WH on the case (obviously confirming he knew of it) … but also illustrates [REDACTED] they’ve tried to throw up that won’t stick[.]”Holden responded at 8:34 p.m. — three hours after Schmaler sent her first email at 5:34 — to say, “Post is live, FWIW [for what it’s worth]. Thanks again.”
Nearly two months later, on Nov. 18, 2010, Holden wrote a new blog post he described as an “EXCLUSIVE,” titled “Right-wing commission to vote on flawed New Black Panthers report.” “The conservative-dominated U.S. Commission on Civil Rights will vote Friday on an interim report that omits critical evidence disproving allegations that the Obama administration refuses to enforce voting-rights laws against racial minorities, according to Media Matters’ analysis of a copy of the report we obtained,” Holden wrote in the Nov. 18 article. Holden attacked Adams again, and Christopher Coates — another now-former DOJ attorney.
After Holden published that piece, Schmaler sent him an email titled “Great piece…” and continuing in the body of the message, “On USCCR investigation.’” One minute later, Holden responded, writing, “Thanks!”
At 9:50 a.m. on July 8, 2011, Media Matters’ Matt Gertz wrote to Schmaler asking for her help “debunking what I think is a conservative media myth about Operation Fast and Furious.” (SOURCE: DOJ’s anti-Gallup ‘whistleblower’ made bizarre work requests, said he was a ‘devout Marxist’)
Gertz told Schmaler that “Xochitl directed me to you as the person to talk to.” Gertz was referring to Xochitl Hinojosa, a DOJ spokeswoman and former Media Matters staffer.
Refresh my memory. Is the Perrelli mentioned in that email the guy who was one of Barry’s BFFs at Harvard Law? Seems there was a Perrelli standing near Barry in the class photo. Xochitl? Wanna bet that’s her birth name? What a surprise. As if we couldn’t have figured THIS out. JournOlist live and well and now direct coordination. Is this legal? Were We the People PAYING these people and paying for the very resources they used to obstruct justice, propagandize to the People, and help them obfuscate when OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES were investigating the violation of people’s right to vote?
I suppose Media Matters is another of those “non-partisan, fact checking” organizations with tax exempt status?
Yes it is non partisan and tax exempt….and I believe someone (perhaps the DC) asked the IRS (Geithner) to investigate..we are so sure that will happen. Not. Not until Obama is out of the WH along with the tax cheat will this be done and over.
Direct pipelines to propaganda! Following in the fine footsteps of both the Germans of old, Hitler, and the Soviets, and communist China. They are thrilled to be in such a position of power to have such exclusive lies to report. Crush the opposition with lies, and keep repeating those lies until the people believe it. Get the news out to all of the sycophants and parrot it while destroying the people involved who don’t agree.
The whistleblowers were so right and honest in their assessment – J. Christian Adams.
Tomorrow the DC will reveal emails about Fast and Furious.
They will promptly be ignored, imho. Have they EVER reported, truly reported, on Solyndra? Today, laughably, my local paper said that Obama was campaigning yesterday, in SUPPORT of the coal industry. Did they report that in 2008 he PROMISED TO REGULATE THE COAL INDUSTRY OUT OF EXISTENCE, WHICH IS EXACTLY WHY THEY’RE LOSING ALMOST 2000 MORE JOBS THIS WEEK? Of course not!
“Campaigning yesterday in support of the coal industry”…
Did a bang up job didn’t he, all the coal stocks were down today across the board.
It was Ohio, which he needs, and so he lied and pretended he supports the coal industry.
Doesn’t Harry Reid own a bunch of land with coal mines?Where did I hear this???
