The actual title is: Now Media Matters is tied to MoveOn, ACORN. See who is one of the biggest donors to anti-Fox News activist group It's too long to fit in the space for the title.
One of the single largest donors to the embattled Media Matters for America is a controversial far-left clearinghouse that funds groups like MoveOn.org, ACORN and a litany of antiwar organizations, KleinOnline has learned.
The organization in question, the Tides Foundation, is funded in part by billionaire George Soros, himself a prominent Media Matters donor.
Tides functions as a money tunnel where major leftist donors provide large sums that are channeled to hundreds of radical groups.
Tides documentation reviewed by KleinOnline shows the group provided a total of $4,099,935.62 to Media Matters during the fiscal years of 2004-2009.
During that same time period, Tides provided an additional $110,000 to the Media Matters Action Network, the groups affiliated progressive lobby.

fox is part of the msm; therefore, it spews the same crap as all the rest.
It is not thought inspiring, it does not report objectively, it is filled with "has beens", it has a decidedly centerist to left of center bias, and it is filled with bimbos, never was's, and faux inelligencia.
In short, it is as big a waste of time and money as all the rest of the msm.
Why attack it? It destroyed itself!
The seeds for a second American revolution or CW2 are being planted by what is going on now.
Because all the best conservatives have left or are leaving.
...and liberals will justify this by fabricating a link between conservative media and the Koch family.
Remember, when liberals accuse us of something.....they are already doing it.
Can anyone doubt the Nazi collaborator’s boast that he bought the Democrat Party?
Not that ACORN and friends were real concerned about it but it sounds like media matters was taking millions in donations for one thing and doing another.
That kind of fraud isn’t new but they’ve gotten away with it for so long that they’re completely comfortable with it. We saw the left wing groups collecting money for various causes and turning around and handing money to the OWS crowd.
ACORN itself was created through fraud in a sense. I saw an interview with Wade Rathke as he explained that he approached the forerunner of ACORN and told them his plans. They told him that he couldn’t do what he wanted but they hired him anyway. When they stopped watching them, he did as he pleased and essentially took the organization over from inside.
Bingo! Spot on!
Fox has been trying to appease the left for a while now by bringing in more and more progressive commentators and I’ve all but turned it off.
I was down to only watching Megyn Kelly during the daytime but she lost me when she accused a guest of being a “hater” for speaking out against an issue.
Glenn Beck was railing about this 2 years ago!!! In fact, making these connections is probably the catalyst for him having to leave FOX
Teresa Heinz Kerry’s as well, iirc.
They are traitors against Liberty, Justice and doing things the right way. They are filth.
LOL that pretty much sums it up. I do think that the legal issues coming against Murdoch are really an effort to kill the network completely.
If it is Tides, so is Ted Turner, a direct competitor of Rupert Murdoch. The amusing thing about Tides Foundation is that it is indeed a money laundering operation.
That so many here on Freerepublic believe FOX News to be the voice of Conservatism is revealing.
Good list. There’s even a FReeper on it.
That could be a “factor” why Glen Beck left, just my guess.
If there be any irony to find in this madness, these asshats will be the first to go at the hands of those they prop up now!!!
