Media Matters Freaks Out Over Coverage of White House Advisor’s ACORN Ties

A screen grab of Glenn Beck from the Media Matters website.

For amusement sometimes I read the Media Matters for America website.

If Media Matters, the left-wing character assassination factory with strong ties to liberal uber-funder George Soros, is denouncing something, chances are it’s something that ought not be denounced.

Take for example Media Matters’s apoplexy over the richly deserved pounding the radical activist group and crime syndicate ACORN has been taking in the media lately.

Look at the shrieking headlines from the Media Matters website:

And it goes on and on and on.

Particularly hilarious is a new writeup on the site about ACORN news coverage.

This gem runs more than 2,200 words!

Media Matters quotes Glenn Beck saying that President Obama “is surrounded by these people.”

On “Fox & Friends,” Beck said, “What’s really weird is [Obama senior advisor Patrick Gaspard] was also one of the top guys at SEIU. Oh, my goodness. SEIU, ACORN, the same organization in — right — he holds the Karl Rove position at the White House. The president has zero credibility when he says, ‘I haven’t been following this ACORN thing.’ This is his army — SEIU and ACORN.” Beck also said that Obama “is surrounded by these people. He’s surrounded by SEIU, and he’s surrounded by ACORN. While ACORN may have — be back one step, SEIU and ACORN are the same.”

What’s the big deal? Beck happens to be right on all counts.

    Matthew, do you comment on their diatribes? They block mine.

      Julie: No, not on their site. Life’s too short to respond to every bit of idiocy emanating from Media Matters.

    How dare Fox News play the evidence card? They’re just pandering for ratings by broadcasting accurate news.

    As almost everyone with a brain knows, Media Matters should have the title “Media Used to Matter.” Most of what passes for media these days in the U.S. is a disgrace. I recall when sensible people referred to our media as “Opinion Leaders,” and it performed that role well. It was an honorable institution envied around the world for its guidance in communities, large and small, for its importance, relevance and necessity. Those days are long gone, of course, and U.S. media now is a joke, an entertainment function of the dying breed. I really could have stated all that in one word: Junk.

      jac mills, the media have always been left-leaning liars. We just didn’t know it. The Internet has changed all that and in fact caught them actually lying outright with invented “evidence” in an attempt to influence a presidential election.

      Usually, they employ lies of omission, such as failing to report the extermination of Jews until the camps were literally overrun.
