BLOGGERGATE: Hillary Leads Army of Paid Bloggers
Poe.com ^ | October 11, 2007 | Richard Lawrence Poe

Posted on 10/15/2007 10:37:36 AM PDT by Richard Poe

MOST HILLARY WATCHERS have had a chance by now to view the controversial YouTube video in which the junior senator from New York brags that she has personally helped flood the Internet with a "network" of leftwing blogs. Her boast raises troubling questions. On a practical level, just how exactly does a U.S. Senator go about exerting her power to stack the blogosphere in her favor?

One obvious method is to buy favorable coverage. Hillary's boast carries a strong implication that she has subsidized bloggers. Regular readers of Poe.com will be reminded of Bloggergate -- a little-known, but ever-burgeoning, scandal which we have followed on this blog since 2003. (1)

Center for Independent Media fellowship application
This document -- an application for a "New Journalist" fellowship from the Center for Independent Media (CIM) -- shows that the Center offers "stipends" to bloggers of up to $18,000 per year. CIM formerly worked from an office owned by Media Matters for America, a Democrat front group which Hillary Clinton admits she helped "start" and "support". To download a copy of the full CIM application form, go here.

The Bloggergate scandal erupted when the two most prominent leftwing bloggers on the Internet -- Jerome Armstrong of MyDD and DailyKos founder Markos Moulitsas Zuñiga -- both admitted to getting cash from Howard Dean's presidential campaign. (2)

The scandal heated up when Republican blogger Michael B. Brodkorb of Minnesota -- assailed by piranha-like swarms of leftist bloggers -- revealed that his tormentors were on the take -- that is, they had been getting generous cash "fellowships" from an outfit called the Center for Independent Media (CIM). At that time -- October 2006 -- CIM was working from an office in Washington, DC owned by the Democrat front group Media Matters for America, Brodkorb discovered. (3)

Curiously, it turns out that the co-founders of CIM, David S. Bennahum and Alexandra Savino, are both Media Matters alumni. Mr. Bennahum helped found Media Matters, serving as one of its original senior fellows. (4) Miss Savino worked for Media Matters as a blogosphere analyst. (5)

Now Bloggergate has spun into overdrive with Hillary Clinton's revelation, from her own lips, that she helped "start" and "support" Media Matters. After all these years, can it be that we have finally identified the source of the Bloggergate money stream? Can it be that leaders of the leftwing blogosphere suck their nourishment directly from the swollen teat of Senator Clinton's pendulous fundraising apparatus?

Here is what Hillary said on the now-infamous YouTube video:

Hillary Clinton: "We are... putting together a network in the blogosphere"

Hillary: I would wish that we had this active and fighting a blogosphere about fifteen years ago, because we have certainly suffered over the last years from a real imbalance in the political world in our country, but we are righting that balance – or lefting that balance – I’m not sure which, and certainly are better prepared and more focused on taking our arguments and making them effective and disseminating them widely and really putting together a network 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, we’re beginning to match what I had said for years was the advantage of the other side.

YearlyKos Convention, Chicago
August 4, 2008

Readers are urged to take special note of the above.

In the above-cited quote, Hillary claims to have "helped start and support" certain institutions tasked with correcting an alleged "imbalance" between rightwing and leftwing media. These institutions form a part of what Hillary calls "a new progressive infrastructure". According to Hillary, the "infrastructure" she "helped" build has given rise to a leftwing "network in the blogosphere" capable of "matching" the "advantage of the other side". In this regard, she names two institutions specifically; Media Matters for America and the Center for American Progress.

My esteemed coauthor David Horowitz and I described the peculiar relationship between these two groups in our book The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Sixties Radicals Siezed Control of the Democratic Party. Of the Center for American Progress, we wrote:

SHADOW PARTY cover
Excerpted from The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Sixties Radicals Siezed Control of the Democratic Party
by David Horowitz and Richard Poe
pages 187-189


Robert Dreyfuss reported in the 1 March 2004 edition of the Nation, "The idea for the Center began with discussions in 2002 between [Morton] Halperin and George Soros, the billionaire investor... Halperin, who heads the office of Soros' Open Society Institute, brought [John] Podesta into the discussion..." (7)

Soros and Halperin then recruited Harold Ickes -- chief fundraiser and former deputy chief of staff for the Clinton White House -- to help organize the Center. It was launched on 7 July 2003...

Hillary subsequently told the Nation's Dreyfuss, "We've had the challenge of filling a void on our side of the ledger for a long time, while the other side created an infrastructure that has come to dominate political discourse. The Center is a welcome effort fill that void."...

Persistent press leaks confirm that Hillary calls the shots at the Center -- not its director, John Podesta. "It's the official Hillary Clinton think tank", an inside source confirmed. (8) ...

Dreyfuss notes the abundance of Clintonites on the Center's staff... "In looking at Podesta's center," Dreyfuss muses, "there's no escaping the imprint of the Clintons. It's not completely wrong to see it as a shadow government, a kind of Clinton White-House-in-exile -- or a White House staff in readiness for President Hillary Clinton." (9) (10)

In 2004, the Center for American Progress gave birth to a new organization called Media Matters for America. David Horowitz and I wrote the following in The Shadow Party:

Excerpted from The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Sixties Radicals Siezed Control of the Democratic Party
by David Horowitz and Richard Poe
pages 189-191


Another of the Center's missions is to carry out "rapid response" to what it calls conservative "attacks" in the media. ...

The Center for American Progress immediately helped launch a fraternal project, Media Matters for America, better known for its website MediaMatters.org. ... [President and CEO David] Brock is a former conservative journalist who defected to the left amidst an outpouring of dramatic public confessions that he had built his career on lies, writing political hit pieces filled with flimsy evidence. Whatever Brock lacks in credibility, he more than makes up for in currying influence. Brock told the New York Times that he conferred with Senator Hillary Clinton, Senator Tom Daschle and former Vice President Al Gore before launching the website.

The New York Times generously provided a 1,041-word feature article to announce Brock's grand opening in May 2004: "Mr. Brock's project was developed with help from the newly formed Center for American Progress... Podesta has loaned office space in the past to Mr. Brock and introduced him to potential donors". Brock received $2 million for the start-up. His donors include friend-of-Hillary Susie Tompkins Buell, co-founder of the fashion company Esprit; Leo Hindery Jr., former CEO of the scandal-ridden Global Crossing; and San Francisco philanthropist James C. Hormel... (11)

One of Brock's first projects was to exert pressure on Congress and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to ban Rush Limbaugh from American Forces Radio and Television Service -- thus depriving the troops in Iraq of one of the few radio programs they are allowed to hear which wholeheartedly supports them and the cause for which they fight. (12)

Much like a yeast colony, in which each bud of yeast sprouts new buds, which in turn sprout buds of their own, the Center for American Progress spawned Media Matters, which has now begun spawning offshoots of its own. One of these offshoots is the Center for Independent Media (CIM). Launched in April 2006, it initially worked from an office owned by Media Matters at 1625 Massachusetts Avenue NW, 3rd Floor, Washington DC.

Through a system of media "fellowships", CIM recruits, trains, directs and finances a veritable army of leftwing bloggers, all subsidized by the U.S. taxpayer, thanks to the Center's 501(c)(3) tax-free status.

As the chart above shows, the Center for Independent Media has launched four group blogs at this writing, all located in key battleground states where Democrats and Republicans are running neck and neck, to wit: Colorado, Minnesota, Iowa and Michigan. Look for more CIM blogs to pop up in Oregon, Nevada, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Ohio, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Arkansas, Virginia and Florida. Go here for a map of battleground states anticipated for the 2008 election cycle. (13)

According to the Center’s fellowship application, CIM offers bloggers a three-month, renewable fellowship which includes such perks as “a stipend of $4500 to be paid over 3 months”, “editorial mentorship from experts in the field of blogging and/or journalism”, access to expensive databases such as LexisNexis, as well as free legal advice, training and technical support. (14)

Because CIM fellowships expire after three months, CIM "fellows" are always on the hot seat. If CIM is satisfied with the blogger's performance, it will renew his fellowship. Otherwise, it will not. Plainly, CIM bloggers have much to gain if they toe the party line -- and much to lose if they fail to satisfy their benefactors.

CIM does not publish a full list of its bloggers. We can only speculate on their number. However, the CIM website does provide a "select" list of some of its more prominent "fellows". These are shown in the chart below. (15)

If the Hilldebea$t has paid money for what is outlined below?

How many trolls has she financed to post their b$ on Free Republic and other conservative sites as true conservatives, who have left the republicans?

The ones who hate Bush more than Saddam or Osami or Hilldebeast and post their bs.

The ones who post NY Slimes and Compost articles slamming our side and saying “We need to read this and listen to it!”

Of course I am a newbie, but heard rumors that the trolling began during the 2000 campaign by driving off libertarians and hard-core Christian Believers in conservative forums by ganging up and ridiculing staunch conservatives to somewhere else in cyberspace?

I reached one of the bloggers, a Mr. Winston Smith. He said he had been approached because back in the 80’s he worked for the Ministry of Truth and was familiar with thought crimes, now known as hate speech. He said he was becoming increasing uncomfortable at being associated with Demorats and wanted to quit but was afraid he would disappear like Paul Winkle.

Could end up like Vince Foster who didn’t disappear; murder was the means of shutting him up.

This info needs to be distributed widely to the talk show circuit. Exposure, exposure, exposure is what Liberals despise the most. They’ve been allowed to get this far because the GOP is still hunting for their Gonads!

Why not see if you can get him to post an account of FR? The publicity might give him some protection.

Winston Smith is the protagonist in George Orwell's novel 1984.

The Clintons corrupt everything they touch.

They make our worse apples look like choir boys.

I shudder every time I see the name Mort Halperin, a slime so evil that the Clinton administration couldn't even get him confirmed to a subordinate post. He and the other warmed over turd Harold Ickes are direct links to the commies in FDR's administration.

God help us...
