Media Matters Looked To Destroy Fox News Employees Personally
The Daily Caller continues its expose on far left Soros monkeys Media Matters For Amerika, and in part 2 we learn stuff that pretty much won’t shock anyone
(Daily Caller) A little after 1 p.m. on Sept. 29, 2009, Karl Frisch emailed a memo to his bosses, Media Matters for America founder David Brock and president Eric Burns. In the first few lines, Frisch explained why Media Matters should launch a “Fox Fund” whose mission would be to attack the Fox News Channel.
“Simply put,” Frisch wrote, “the progressive movement is in need of an enemy. George W. Bush is gone. We really don’t have John McCain to kick around any more. Filling the lack of leadership on the right, Fox News has emerged as the central enemy and antagonist of the Obama administration, our Congressional majorities and the progressive movement as a whole.”
“We must take Fox News head-on in a well funded, presidential-style campaign to discredit and embarrass the network, making it illegitimate in the eyes of news consumers.”
What Frisch proceeded to suggest, however, went well beyond what legitimate presidential campaigns attempt. “We should hire private investigators to look into the personal lives of Fox News anchors, hosts, reporters, prominent contributors, senior network and corporate staff,” he wrote.
After that, Frisch argued, should come the legal assault: “We should look into contracting with a major law firm to study any available legal actions that can be taken against Fox News, from a class action law suit to defamation claims for those wronged by the network. I imagine this would be difficult but the right law firm is bound to find some legal ground for us to take action against the network.”
Those on the Left have always despised Fox because they refuse to walk the same far left line as the other 99% of the media. They really do not like Americans being offered an alternative viewpoint, nor seeing actual Conservatives on TV destroying the liberals they debate with. They do not want to see people like Hannity, Beck (obviously, he has moved on), Ingraham, O’Reilly, et all, expounding Conservative views. So, instead of telling us why the Leftist point of view is better for America, Media Matters is intent on destroying the people who work for Fox in a personal manner.
This revelation isn’t particularly new: David Brock has as much as said he is out to destroy Fox News last year, which puts their tax exempt status in jeopardy. The above mentioned memo itself highlights that MMFA has violated their 501(c)3 status, which prohibits MMFA from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Why do they want a tax exempt status anyway? If memory serves, Liberals think everyone should pay their “fair share” in taxes. They should walk the talk.
