    Being reported on FNC right now, Seems Media Matters is getting Fed dollars to do their
    attacks on Fox News. Since when does the Fed have the right to give money to outfits
    to attack another outfit's 1st Amendment rights ??

    Doesn't pass the smell test.

    Hope the IRS yanks Media Matters non-profit status.
    These kinds of shenanigans are what I expect in Venezuela, not America.

    So tell me how this is legal.

    There's too much of the whole using taxpayer money to fund political agenda crap going on.
    It needs to be stopped.

    I don't want "the Party" to decide what I hear or who I hear it from.
    Pravda anyone ?
    Herr Goebbels would be proud.

    SO you have no problem with whom ever is in the White House giving money to Non Profits that openly attack their adversaries? Or real news organizations?

    Howdy Plasma, good to see you as well.
    How've you been ?

    Not so much a Nazi reference as paying homage to the man's place as a premier
    propagandist of his time. But you knew that.

    At any rate, good to see you again.

    Well Lee Atwater, Roger Ailes or Karl Rove would probably have been more appropriate.

    Dubya initiated the concept of using Fed money to sponsor above board communications that didn't have anything to do with violating the First Amendment rights of the Dems. It was a bi-partisan arrangement that the Obummer Administration used to turn into the present situation where Media Matters, largely financed by the Leftiest of the Left Pieces of Shit....i.e. George Soros who is NOW given our tax dollars to squash opposition deemed dangerous to the Obummer Administration.

    Something similar was organized on a looser and more innocuous scale by the Republicans during the Bush years......... and the IRS, almost immediately, shut it down.

    Let see what happens with the present Perfidious Media Matters, the recognized media organ of the Obama Administration.
