Media Matters developing ‘opposition research’ on Fox, has list of ‘every single person’
Daily Caller ^ | 3/26/11 | Steven Nelson

Posted on 03/26/2011 10:34:10 PM PDT by Nachum

Politico published an eye-opening report on Saturday by Ben Smith about “Media Matter’s war against Fox.” Smith wrote that the organization continues to transform itself into an exclusively Fox News-battling group.Media Matters founder David Brock told Politico that his organization’s activism has developed into a “strategy of containment.” This strategy includes extensive work to compile intelligence on the employees of the cable news channel. (Snip)“Somebody in that organization is giving us primary source documents.”

Full title:Media Matters developing ‘opposition research’ on Fox, has list of ‘every single person’ at network

We need to finally, formally, do the same to the communists. We need

1.) an easily accessable database ...of communist individuals in Media.
2.)Communist organizations
3.) Their funders
4.) Plans of lawfare instruction for conservatives to fight fire with fire
5.) a database of communist events and strategies

Remind me again about "Freedom of the Press" and what exactly was wrong with Nixon's enemies list?

Cheers!

Agreed. It's time to do what these people do.

Glenn Beck has been driving them insane...he’s been and continues to be their real target. Ben Smith is helping media matters by writing this story otherwise no one would ever know about it as we never frequent that boring blog.

[Brock was formerly a conservative journalist. In 1993 he wrote an award-winning investigation for The American Spectator about Bill Clinton’s sex life as governor of Arkansas. In 2004 Brock founded Media Matters after expressing regret for his past as a conservative journalist.]

Brock is simply a paid political operative with no core values who works for the highest bidder. After Brock was “outed” as being gay in 1992 he moved to the more friendly Left.

It must be working.
From what I hear, FOX seems to be listing to the Commie port side.
There is no doubt that the Commies have pretty much taken over education and the media in the USSA.
The fruit is just about overripe, and ready to fall.

Let’s get this straight—Fox News is not an enemy to the socialists, the globalists or the ruling class.

It's an idea. But why not have a "journoList" of our own? Why not have teams of bloggers, to systematically attack and overwhelm them? They SAY they have numbers, but how many conservatives listen to Rush and Hannity?

Trolling them is only one thing. Why not respond to every single event or program with a program of our own?

Then, we need to come up with a specific way to shut them down. Forever.

[“Somebody in that organization is giving us primary source documents.”]

This is an amateurish attempt at psychological warfare aimed at provoking a witch hunt. If they had a mole in FOX News would they announce it? The Western World is turning on the Left which is disintegrating. This is a last gasp.

The GOP should’ve hired a stable of top genealogists long ago. Do a family tree on every rat who is elected governor, congressman, senator. Out them as soon as they throw their turban in the ring. Out the likes of the Gore family as former big slave owners, etc.

Personally, I think we should have a box score on every pundit like we do for every sports player. I do not know how we could possibly create or score this, but when a pundit shows up on the screen, a list of statistics should appear below. When evaluating the prospects of liberal candidates, this pundit is accurate x% of the time. When evaluating conservative candidates, accurate y% of the time. When predicting economic effects of legislation, accurate z% of the time.

And so on. And as they pontificate on something, their record of accuracy when speaking on that subject in the past should be flashing underneath them to tell the audience how much credibility these people should be given.

Just my 2¢.

Ancient history that’s not going to win him any black votes. Of course, Gore himself is ancient history. But it would badly hurt any other dem slavers they could expose.

Do the family trees, GOP! We never would’ve had Obama sitting in the Oval Office if you had. You could’ve had his birth certificate in your hands long before the 2008 election.

I get a kick out of the left’s hysteria about Fox News. It is a wimpy news station. If they had any idea how real conservatives think . . . and how moderate Fox is by way of comparison.

Media matters is just another progressive op, with the usual malevolent nonsense. We have an entry which is fairly complete. But the interesting item here is Brock, himself. Very murky background suggesting something happened a few years ago, and the “something” will probably reveal all sorts of sore spots. Looking.

Oh, and your vid is coming over but it’ll take a while.

Media Matters for America is a Web-based, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.

This 'war on Fox' is a clear abuse of its 501(c)(3) status. Someone should file a complaint with the IRS, and use the liberals own harassment tactics on them.
