"After three years of tax-exempt operation, Media Matters’ credibility as a media watchdog is questionable. Its leader, Brock, is a self-proclaimed liar who strong-armed sources that didn’t agree with him. While writing his mea culpa, “Blinded by the Right,” Brock was hospitalized in a mental facility where he spent time in a “quiet room” and “had delusions, he thought people were trying to kill him,” according to the Drudge Report.
Media Matters stars, including Brock, Eric Alterman and Ryan Chiachiere, are hypocrites who have used the very sexist, bigoted and racist language for which they crucify others, including Imus. They appear to care more about taking out the kneecaps of conservatives than pursuing truth or accuracy in the media. After all, Media Matters certainly allows bigoted posts on their web site -- as long as they are directed toward conservatives."--Catherine Moy from Human Events
I'm sure many of you have heard the controversy with Media Matters and Bill O'Reilly of late. I am not always a fan of O'Reilly's but about 75% of the time he is right on the money. This recent controversy is just the latest attempt by Media Matters to smear a conservative.
They make their living by attacking conservatives like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly and numerous others. What they do is take their words out of context in order to smear them. This latest incident is from a radio show where he was talking with African American liberal, Juan Williams about racism and he was condemning it. Media Matters took what he said out of context and are trying to make him out to be a racist. Al Sharpton even went on the air last night and defended O'Reilly and agreed that the attack was baseless.
The even bigger problem is that CNN and others took Media Matters' story and ran with it without checking into it and finding out the truth.
