Actual title is: Did Media Matters fund the marketing of Obamacare?: Progressive group under fire for questionable financial practices
An organization that reportedly received a grant from the lobbying arm of the embattled Media Matters for America helped the White House to craft and market Obamacare, according to a recently released book.
Yesterday, as part of an in-depth investigative series on Media Matters, the Daily Caller revealed that the progressive media organization gave away $125,000 of its donors money to a little-known marketing outfit that calls itself the Herndon Alliance.
Based in Seattle, Herndon is said to advocate for universal healthcare. The grant reportedly came from the Media Matters Action Network, the progressive groups affiliated lobby. The money was earmarked for rapid response media capability for countering misinformation and obstructive rhetoric.
The Daily Caller reported that the revelation, together with other questionable financial practices at Media Matters, has prompted interest from Congressional Republicans who are now considering examining the groups tax-exempt status.
Meanwhile, the relationship between the Herndon Alliance and the Obama White House was revealed in the recently released book, Red Army: The Radical Network that must be defeated to save America,by reporters Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott.
In Red Army,Klein and Elliott document the radical origins of Obamas health-care law, revealing the principal author of the foundation for the legislation while tracing the law itself to a group funded by George Soros, a prominent Media Matters donor.

It would be impossible to count the “passed down through just two sets of hands” money that this criminal regime has laundered. Every story about a grant or loan can be traced back to the Kenyan’s political cronies. This (he) has to be squashed. (and prosecuted!)
p.s. The figure is in TRILLIONS!
Anything MM is doing, it's being done at the direction of the Clintons, not Zippo.
That’s the truth!
According to what I’ve read, some keys to uncovering more of their corruption are Shorebank (which did not close as reported) and California.
