Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton Told YearlyKos Convention She Helped Start Media Matters
Posted on 10/01/2007 5:44:12 PM PDT by lowbridge
As NewsBusters reported Sunday, the leftwing organization responsible for the recent smear campaigns against Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly, Media Matters, has direct ties to the Clintons.
To be sure, folks on the left, and in the media that support them, will either deny this connection, or ignore it.
In the end, that's going to be hard to do, for on August 4, while speaking at the YearlyKos convention in Chicago, the junior senator from New York proudly stated, "institutions that I helped to start and support like Media Matters and Center for American Progress."
Our friend Mike Church has been kind enough to provide the following audio of this segment of her speech that day (partial transcript to follow). Those interested can also view the video available here (relevant section at 2:20):
We are certainly better prepared and more focused on, you know, taking our arguments, and making them effective, and disseminating them widely, and really putting together a network, uh, in the blogosphere, in a lot of the new progressive infrastructure, institutions that I helped to start and support like Media Matters and Center for American Progress.
Sounds like the junior senator confirmed my contention from Sunday: "Hillary and her backers have created an advocacy network whose expressed goal is to take down all of her critics in the media.
You know, we're beginning to match what I had said for years was the advantage of the other side. Uh, you know, when I made that comment about the vast right-wing conspiracy, I wasn't kidding. Uh, what I never could have predicted is that it was not a conspiracy, it was just wide open and out there for everybody to see.
Well, Senator, it now appears that the advocacy network you "helped to start and support" is wide open and out there for everybody to see.
Talk about your inconvenient truths!

What does Media Matters do besides attack conservatives?
The Democrats in Congress are no more than a collection of underhanded liars who garner votes by promising to give people money.
She does not want to have to deal with them before the presidential election.
Funnel Soros money to Democrats
She helped Algore invent the internet too.
So if the lawsuits target Media Matters they’ll sweep up the Hildabeast.
Hmmm... this could leave another big mark...or peter...or paul...
Created by Hillary. Funded by Soros.

Pump money into the beast's campaign.
One-time Clinton basher becomes a key defender

David Brock, the reformed right-wing reporter who once took aim at Hillary Rodham Clinton, has cultivated surprisingly deep ties to the senator - paying $200,000 to a Clinton confidant for working at his watchdog group, Media Matters.
So people who disagree with Hillary are what she refers to as the “right wing noise machine.”
I would love to hear a debate between her and Zell Miller. Wouldn’t that be a hoot!?
She owns helping start Media Matters at 2:46
One of the key witnesses to be called in Paul v Clinton is Kelly Craighead, one of Hillary’s most senior aides. I reported some time ago that Craighead was instrumental in setting up Media Matters. Yes, it was set up with Soros money to get Hillary into the White House. Soros is an incredible danger to this republic.
Nixon was always accused of using harsh negative tactics against his opponents (especially in his early campaigns). The Clintons' methods are Nixon's on steroids...but they are smart enough to put up a screen so the public doesn't see what's going on.
Nice try co-conspirator. Your well-placed comment was a wake-up call to truth seekers. As it turns out, you and your POS husband were greater scumbags than we ever imagined.
"We must stop thinking of the individual and start thinking about what is best for society.
"It's time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few, for the few, and to replace it with shared responsibility for shared prosperity."
"We can't just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people.""
"We have to build a political consensus and that requires people to give up a little bit of their own turf in order to create this common ground."
"I certainly think the free market has failed."
"I think it's time to send a clear message to what has become the most profitable sector [oil] in the entire economy, that they are being watched."
"What I want to do is take those profits and apply them to alternative energy."
Karl Marx or Frederick Engels said none of these things; Hillary Clinton said them all.
And you believer her? She could be lying her @$$ off! Sounds like Bill Clinton claiming he is a lifetime member of the NRA or Al Gore claiming his mother sung him that union ditty? Such could also be true, but just how likely is that?
You could say that Soros is an incredible danger to the entire planet and the race of humans that G*d, in his peculiar wisdom, saw fit to make him a member of (pardon the grammar).
From her own lips Media Matters is just a branch of the Clinton Chinese Mafia War Room, nothing else. Rush is going to nail them with this.
Pray for W and Our Troops
That tells it all potlatch!
Back when David Brock still worked for American Spectator, he wrote a biography called “The Seduction of Hillary Rodham Clinton”. It was a surprising puff piece considering he was believed to be a conservative then. Shortly thereafter, he jumped to the dark side. He and Hill go way back.
I wonder just how far back Brock & Hillary go.....
What common link(s?) might they have?
potlatch creates some of the most original, unique, and accurate political parody animated graphics that are seen on the internet
Her .gifs often appear as the featured animated graphic at http://StrangePolitics.com and were first seen here on Free Republic
She actually said it out loud?
That's the perfect graphic for this thread, potlatch!
I totally agree!
He was loaded for bear Friday, and today.
I can't wait to hear his show tomorrow.
Do you think he possibly set them up?
Great question, devolve.
I wish I knew the answer...
TreasoncRats are so filled with Hatred they set themselves up. This is an orchestrated campaign by the Clinton Chinese Mafia War Room with the Politics of Personal Destruction.
Difference is we/Rush has seen this act before and the net exposes their lies. She really blew it with this statement.
Pray for W and Rush
See, and Gore only invented the Internet.
bump! bump! bump!
