    Remember the recent screeching of the Republican Noise Machine about the Obama's administrations alleged dropping of voter intimidation charges against members of the Black Panthers and attempting to twist this false claim into a racial issue?

    Media Matters has something to say about that. Listen up:

    And . . .

    (I love that characterization of Megyn Kelly - "perpetually outraged." Spot on.) And still more . . .

    So here ya go, USMB race baiters - whatcha think of THAT?

    They're just gonna dismiss it because the source is MediaMatters.


    There is also this, though:

    What do you want when hacks serve up links to hack sites?

    I'd expect no less were I to link to someone like frontpagemag.

    We'll dismiss it because it's from Media Matters? Who, by the way, spends most of their time and energy dismissing anything FOX reports...that's hilariously hypocritical.

    But you're right about one thing...I will indeed dismiss it.

    For the record, I'm much more upset about the lack of coverage from the mainstream on the King Shabazz debacle. How can that be? Why are they NOT covering that and spent WEEKS on a supposed incident where somebody said that somebody heard somebody say the N word from a Tea Party member during the Obama Care protests? So much for unbiased reporting of racism in America.....

    talk about race baiting...just sayin

    you think the lefties-Democrats-Progressives-Commie, the lamestream media and MEDIAMATTERS would just let a story like this drop if say, it was the KKK standing outside polling places in their uniforms and nightsticks.?

    this is just a bunch of CRAP to try and EXCUSE this for what it was. they had no friggen place standing there with nightsticks at ANY POLLING PLACE.

    very sickening to watch all this EXCUSE making for this. just sickening.

    Not only that, see how it's touted as some sort of evidence of something.

    It's evidence of nothing. It's an opinion piece with zero meat, and zero new information. Zero.
