That one fact alone is enough to have the IRS refuse to grant charitable status to Media Matters. I am shocked and dismayed that you write a story about the Daily Caller reporting half-truths and then you do the same. Why not become a real journalist, do your homework, and look into these allegations? Are you afraid of what you might find? I think so! The American people no longer trust any of you to produce real facts–you simply lie and distort the truth.

I think it’s funny that he runs an organization that mainly smears people as racist if they criticize Obama, but Brock has an ad up on Chemistry.com where he specifies that he only dates white men. If that’s his preference that’s his business, but the optics seem rather stupid for someone in disposition.

Which makes me wonder if the kookie elevator thing was part of some policy where senior Media Matters staff are not allowed to be alone, including in elevators, with interns and junior staffers. Because there has been some harassment settlement.

That was what I wanted to know about from an investigative piece.

Would ANY of us want that to happen to us, or better yet, to anyone in our family? Our country is indeed in serious condition.

This man may be the biggest failure in cable news history, and this reeks of an attempt to stay relevant or to impress in hopes of finding more work on TV. Yikes! I hate attacking the messenger type of arguments but sometimes a cigar is just a cigar…. and a hack is just a hack looking for another payday.

In fact even Fox blushes when they showcase this data because in my opinion it is much worse.

Reuters should be smarter on this “matter.” The U.S. Internal Revenue Code Section 501 (c)(3)specifically limits political propaganda of “charities” operating in the public trust to provide public education. The term “propaganda” actually appears in the IRS Code. Media Matters operates as a taxpayer-subsidized character assassin for liberal political operatives, and according to The Daily Caller, President Obama’s re-election machine.
