Posted on 09/18/2009 11:59:54 AM PDT by Joiseydude
Well, well, well look here what just popped up in my email. It's a memo from Media Matters President, Eric Burns. Yes, of course, I subscribe to Media Matters. One must always keep one's enemies close.
Our boy Eric has decided that the one lone TV voice crying in the wilderness in often dissenting fashion to our Dear Leader is one lone voice too many and has decided to launch a "Fight Fox" campaign.
"Dear Friend," Eric's letter begins, "Since President Obama's inauguration, Fox News has officially abandoned its already dubious standing as a news organization and is now engaging in outright political activism, completing its transition into the 24/7 media wing of the far-right conservative movement."

I’ve got some used kleenex I can donate as currency to Media Matters.
Guess Media Matters has got to do something to keep those Soro’s buck flowing to their irrelevant joke of an organization.
Yeah, another kubuki dance for the ‘progressive’ agenda to raise cash.
Guess I’ll have to start watching Fox.
Just more fringe media flatulence.
Liberals and the media pals can dish it out, but they can’t take it.
SOOOOOO, the Fascist are crawling out from under the rocks at a record rate. If WE don’t like your form of journalism...WE WILL SHUT YOU DOWN.
I thought it was viewership and advertising that determined that? NOT politics. Did the 1st amendment just get erased?
Never cared for Burns. Did he get fired from Fox?
Well there’s a group that needs their tax status checked into. Media Matters!
Next target for Glenn should be MEDIA MATTERS.
PINGING THE COMRADES..............here we go again.......
Is this the same Eric Burns who hosts a Fox News program on Sundays about media issues? If so, why the hell is this fifth columnist provided a forum for this?
Did Obama sick his dogs on Fox? They must be getting to close to the truth?
Foxnews is only part of News Corp, but look at this 3 months of its stock price chart, relating the dates to events etc:
Fox is too far left.
Everyone is already watching FOX. Only ones watching CNN MSNBC and the rest of the fringe media are only family members and some relatives....
yeah...I guess taking out both ACORN and Van Jones in response has taught them absolutely nothing...
It used to follow the Beltway Boys on Sat. PM. I wondered if it was the same guy—sounds like it is. He always had one or two screaming liberals on that show to muck things up.
Eric was on Fox Watch.
His contract expired and was not renewed. He was ticked that he wasn’t told why.
I can’t wait until this rumble starts.
Thank you, I needed that! lol
Big deal...they’re not relevant. Death dance of the dinosaurs...
Should read George Soros Media Matters if they want to be correct. Then the Democrats/Trolls can say George Soros doesn’t directly fund Media Matters. After that, hit them with this post:
“Media Matters is funded by the Democracy Alliance which is funded by George Soros and his brother. You can check MediaSource for this information. If you have a problem with the truth, please disregard this posting.”
Soros has a whole group of alliances he funds through the Democracy Alliance.
Well, in which case he shouldn’t have been hired in the first place- but then again, it looks like he never showed his true colors until now.
Didn’t Burns used to be on a show on Fox with Cal Thomas and other journalists?
Next target for Glenn...I repectfully disagree. Knock off SEIU and their pedophile union local bosses first...then we can mop up the smaller stuff.
I thought he was a decent fellow,but turns out he’s a scumbag!
Yeah, right. Apparently, MM has never heard of O'Reilly, Shepard Smith, Geraldo Rivera, or Juan Williams - all 4 leftists.
Media Matters is also supported by the Tides Foundation.
That’s the network that has BOR, Shep and Rivera.
So I guess they are trying to be “Fair and Balanced”. LOL!
Now I remember: the media navel-gazing program, usually with one or two obnoxious "journalists."
Fox is above all a business enterprise, so I'm guessing Eric does know why his contract wasn't renewed. Dollars and cents.
Eric Burns obviosuly has no problems in the liberal media outlets of ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, etc, have “officially abandoned its already dubious standing as a news organization and is now engaging in outright political activism”?
Definate moronic idiot you be Burns.
As Glenn would likely say, Fringe Media doesn’t really Matter
Yes. Must. Fight. Fox. Because the truth, must. not. get. out.
He should have watched his own show and discovered that he was neither pretty nor interesting. That might have given him a clue.
>>Fox is above all a business enterprise, so I’m guessing Eric does know why his contract wasn’t renewed. Dollars and cents. <<
He says on Wikipedia that it wasn’t ratings.
I suspect he became a whiny b!tch.
That was my question exactly. He had a show on Saturday afternoon with 4-5 other columnist and discussed a few issues.
Is this his revenge?
No wonder they fired him.
I wonder if he thinks Olberman and Maddow are not biased?
Ex-Fox guy going after Beck and Foxnews. A bit bitter....still!
The same thing happened in Germany and the USSR. They learned well from their teachers.............but not well enough. We are not Germans or Russians. We don’t take kindly to anyone trying to tell us what to do.
I thought that dissent was patriotic? What say ye Hillary?
Isn't media Matters a Podesta / Hillary spawned beast? Or am I confused?
Kyle-Anne is another hot conservative!
Communists and authoritarian dictators LOVE the words democracy and democratic... Look at the way Chavez uses those words, and let's not forget the DDR - Deutsche Demokratische Republik - AKA East Germany.
