    After $100k ‘public relations’ payment from teachers union, Media Matters attacked Fox News

    Wednesday, August 29, 2012
    By David Martosko


    A document the National Education Association filed with the U.S. Department of Labor in 2011 indicates that the teachers union donated $100,000 to Media Matters For America nearly two years ago, describing it as a payment for “public relations costs.” In the months that followed, Media Matters’ online coverage of teachers unions increased, focusing largely on attacking the Fox News Channel and other media outlets it considers “conservative” in nature.

    The $100,000 payment was first documented in “Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind,” a book by Citadel international politics professor Mallory Factor published on August 21.

    “[T]o ensure that NEA’s agenda makes its way in the media,” Factor wrote, “NEA has given $100,000 to Media Matters, the George Soros-funded liberal ‘charitable organization’ dedicated to targeting mythical right-wing media bias.” (RELATED – Book: Obamacare law designed to unionize 21 million health care workers)

    The Daily Caller has obtained an electronic document verifying Factor’s claim. It is available on a website operated by the Department of Labor’s Office of Labor-Management Standards.

    Truly Absurd Salon Headline: 'Fox News’ War on Muslims - Ailes, O'Reilly and Hannity Have Stoked Islamophobia'

    By Noel Sheppard | September 12, 2012


    On the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the horrendously liberal website Salon published a piece with the truly absurd headline, "Fox News’ War on Muslims: Roger Ailes, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity have stoked Islamophobia -- and encouraged right-wing ignorance."

    The contents - excerpted from Nathan Lean's book “The Islamophobia Industry: How the Right Manufactures Fear of Muslims” - were stocked with misinformation about America's leading cable news channel:

    ---


    Apparently neither Lean nor Salon were concerned about checking the facts in this excerpt.

    Reached for comment, a Fox News representative told NewsBusters:

    “Had Salon bothered to check out the “facts” it was parroting from Rolling Stone and Media Matters which exists solely to attack FOX News, they would have seen that we already dismissed the 2011 story as fiction and fantasy. Their rip and write approach, especially in regards to stirring up religious hatred is a vivid example of irresponsible, lazy journalism made no less egregious by the fact that it was commissioned on 9/11.”

    Indeed.

    Yeah, Charles Manson dismissed reports that he was responsible for the Tate-Labianca murders, but that doesn't mean he's right.

    Emails show Justice working with Media Matters on stories that target critics

    Published September 18, 2012
    FoxNews.com


    Newly published emails show the top spokeswoman at the U.S. Justice Department regularly collaborating with the liberal advocacy group Media Matters on stories that slam the administration's critics.

    The emails, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request and published by The Daily Caller, often show department public affairs chief Tracy Schmaler communicating with Media Matters bloggers. Sometimes, the emails were in response to inquiries. Other times, Schmaler was pitching ideas, according to the Caller.

    In a January 2012 email chain, Schmaler sent a Media Matters writer lines from House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa's comments at a recent hearing. She reportedly underlined passages where the California Republican tries to explain the difference between Operation Fast and Furious and other anti-gunrunning operations under former President George W. Bush.

    Hours later, an article appeared on Media Matters' site titled "Rep. Issa Ties Himself in Fast and Furious Knots."

    There is no doubt that Media Matters is bias. All their attention is directed at conservatives/conservative media.
    But let's not forget that the right has their own resources that are biased against the left/lefty media!
    So, if one is going to whine about one, they should whine about them all. And I do. I'm so tired of people using one-sided resources. These resources are for those who are just plain lazy to do research on their own or are people who refuse to stop drinking the Kool-aid their masters feed them.
