DOJ Worked With Soros Backed Media Matters To Quash Stories


The Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, er, US Department of Justice, has some explaining to do

(Daily Caller) Internal Department of Justice emails obtained by The Daily Caller show Attorney General Eric Holder’s communications staff has collaborated with the left-wing advocacy group Media Matters for America in an attempt to quell news stories about scandals plaguing Holder and America’s top law enforcement agency.

Dozens of pages of emails between DOJ Office of Public Affairs Director Tracy Schmaler and Media Matters staffers show Schmaler, Holder’s top press defender, working with Media Matters to attack reporters covering DOJ scandals. TheDC obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Sadly, I’m not shocked in the least that the Obama/Holder Politicized DOJ would engage in practices using the George Soros funded and vehemently left wing Media Matters to attempt to shut down the 1st Amendment rights of reporters.

Emails sent in September and November 2010 show Schmaler working with Media Matters staffer Jeremy Holden on attacking news coverage of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation scandal.

Holden attacked former DOJ Civil Rights Division attorneys J. Christian Adams and Hans von Spakovsky on Sept. 20, 2010 for what he called an attempt “to reignite the phony New Black Panther Party scandal.”

Before Holden posted his article at 7:52 p.m., Schmaler sent him several emails with information helping him attack both former DOJ officials.

This is the government under Barack Obama: politicized and on the attack, rather than doing their jobs, showing transparency, and acting within the law. The DOJ engaged in a relationship with Media Matters to destroy those who were doing their Constitutionally protected jobs to hold the government accountable.

Make sure to read the whole thing: tons and tons of examples.
