New York Times Calls Soros Smear Machine Media Matters “Highly Partisan”
Capital Research Center ^ | November 2, 2008 | Matthew Vadum

Finally, the New York Times has published an article that calls George Soros's character assassination machine, Media Matters for America, a "highly partisan research organization." Apparently the New York Times didn't get the memo from Media Matters that --wink, wink-- it's officially nonpartisan.

We knew years ago that Media Matters was aggressively partisan because it's our mission to monitor the drivel that liberal groups say. (For more information, read Rondi Adamson's excellent profile of Media Matters in the July 2007 issue of Foundation Watch.)

Of course, the NYT piece is otherwise sympathetic to Media Matters, but this is probably the most one can expect from the Old Gray Lady.

But Media Matters for America can’t be partisan! It’s a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

If it were partisan, the IRS should be after them.

Methinks the old gray whore smells a McPalin victory and is attempting to cover their ass at the 11th hour.

“Methinks the old gray whore smells a McPalin victory and is attempting to cover their ass at the 11th hour.”

That’s exactly what I was thinking.

And, yet, now the Old Gray Liberal Whore makes a half assed attempt to show that they are above the fray and non-partisan thinking we, the public, don't know what they really are.

The solace of this is that the O'thug Administration won't need them after Nov 4. They'll be just a bunch of mostly-white liberal dilettantes who have outlived their usefulness. They will be placed on the ash heap of pawns where they belong. In the end - their color was their undoing.

George and Warren are busy buying in now that they have made the markets crash. Greed breeds greed. The greedy never have enough and they love leftist Eurosocialism because it allows the few to continually increase their share while keeping the true inventor/entrepreneurs from benefiting from their inventions.

Both NYT and Soros’ Open Society know they are overexposed: What’s this, the who-can-out-overexpose the other?

Must be some fear of reprisals and investigations. I say give Palin the task of leading deep investigation(s) into media bias, funding and linkages. I smell MediaGate.

Wow, I thought it was just a coincidence that Media Splatters goes after conservative journalists and pundits 100% of the time.

maybe the times is beginning to notice that about half the world is shorting its stock, just to drive them out of business, and are trying, belatedly, to appear fair. hell, they might even say something nice about heterosexuals before it’s over.

Boy! Those are some Ace reporters at the NYTs. What next? They'll be telling us that Obama has not been vetted and has Marxist tendencies?

If the Times wants to stay in business, printing the truth about Soros and Media Matters is a good start.

This article will put the Times on the DU/dailyKOS sh__ list. };>D

Super fag Mzz Brock must be pulling her hair out over this inadvertent moment of truth from the NYT. Meanwhile, of course, she’s probably siphoning off $9 million of the $10 million in funding for Media Mutters from gullible closet Marxists like the guy from Progressive Insurance and putting it in secret accounts in the Cayman Islands.
