BULLETIN: Dan Gainor of Business & Media Institute just broke the news about George Soros' immedate plans to reorganize central banking, globally. Gainor will be our guest on Gulag Night, this Monday 3/28, 10pm ET, 30 mins. Read the article here: "Unreported Soros Event Aims to Remake Entire Global Economy."

from Terresa Monroe-Hamilton’s NoisyRoom

From: ihasa HotDog

To our comrades at Media Matters… They are sharing their civility and love today by declaring war on Fox News. How very Stalin of them.

Well, we have a request to our readers out there. As most of you know this site partners with KeyWiki.org, New Zeal and Gulag Bound. We already have some research on Media Matters for America. What we are looking for is a complete listing of the staff at Media Matters. We already have a partial one. Quid pro quo – since Soros’ Media Matters believes in transparency, in the interest of fair research, we will be looking into their staff members as well. It should be a riveting history on radical exploits to be sure.

In fact, Media Matters is soooo transparent, they don’t list who is on their staff or board anywhere that I can find. Perhaps I overlooked it somewhere? Please send your info. to us at NoisyRoom: terresa@noisyroom.net. You know, in the name of fair play and transparency. Wouldn’t want our good comrades at Media Matters to feel left out, now would we?

When the Media Matters declares war story came out yesterday, it was suggested that we fight them with their own weapons. This thread would be a good place to continue suggestions, ideas, and actions to fight the Soros paid Storm troopers.

How will this be any different than what they do every single day, honestly?

Because they have expanded their operations publicly. Added full time personnel and are targeting Fox specifically.

Media Matters founder and author DavidBrock plans to file paperwork Tuesday with the Federal Election Commission detailing plans to raise and spend unlimited funds to influence the upcoming election.

The group will be called American Bridge, and Brock tells the New York Times’ Michael Luo that he’s already gotten $4 million in pledges from Democratic donors including Rob McKay, heir to the Taco Bell fortune, and longtime TV producer Marcy Carsey, best known as the executive producer of “The Cosby Show.”

The chairwoman of American Bridge will be Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, the former lieutenant governor of Maryland and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.

I guess Media Matters along with George Soros do not understand what comes around goes around. .. I am sure Fox will have not problem finding the same things with the lunatics at Media Matters. Brock is a Psychopath.

Read an article a day or two ago on this and it said in that article that they were also planning the same tactics for some conservative or right wing (forget how they phrased it) internet web sites. FR would be a target for them I would think.

David Brock is a psychopath and a sociopath. He likes destroying people, institutions, societies, etc. for the fun of it. He is the perfect giddy gay mini-me to that greater psychopath and sociopath George Soros, who should be jail or barred from this country for ever.

fox died a long time ago... if they do not care, neither do I. They are more abc than abc these days. Why liberals attack a liberal network... I will never understand. Yes, they have a few conservatives for their entertainment shows... but what little hard news they have is dominated by liberalism and bias.

I’m incredibly busy today so I’m going to post this without first doing all the digging to find out how the details line up. Maybe somebody can do some checking. This is what my gut tells me is going on.

To announce guerrilla warfare defeats the purpose. This is meant to be a threat to Fox, to get them to back off of something. I believe this is Soros’ response to Hannity openly supporting the eligibility issue, which he began to do after Trump’s first comments several weeks ago.

In October of 2008 and at least once after the election, Soros’ people threatened four media heads with annihilation via FCC and anti-monopoly moves directed toward the parent company, but particularly of Fox because they are the only one interested in exposing Obama. The result of that threat was that the media heads told (or implied to) their on-air personalities that their careers, lives, and families could all be jeopardized if they allowed anybody to speak about the eligibility issue.

Well, that was when Henry Waxman was the head of the House Ethics Committee. But now Darryl Issa is the head of the committee, and he is particularly honing in on how much of a political hit team for Obama the FCC is, regarding direct FCC coordination with the White House on the net neutrality rules that Congress forbade the FCC from coming up with but they did anyway. So the FCC threat may not be enough to keep the radio personalities quiet. So they have to go to a Plan B.

I believe it was shortly after Hannity made some positive comments about the eligibility issue that Michelle Malkin’s niece was kidnapped. Shortly after that there was an article (can’t remember who it was put out by) that accused Malkin of being a “birther”, even though Malkin had jumped through all the eligibility hoops they gave her regarding the eligibility issue - mocking “birthers”, etc. I believe this was the Soros goons’ way of getting not only the media heads but the OTHER ON-AIR PERSONALITIES to try to shut up Hannity. Peer pressure. Because even if the personity him/herself jumped through all the hoops their families were STILL in danger if ANYBODY in the company mentioned the eligibility issue favorably. Accusing Malkin of being a “birther” when all the media folks knew she had done what she was “supposed” to was a way to tell them all they better shut up their peers.

Now that Hannity has been more vocal on this, there must have been some kind of go-ahead from Fox so Soros’ goons have to somehow threaten the company again, but they can’t use the FCC because Issa is on their tail already. So they are publicly saying they will go after Fox’s parent company via Britain, which is outside the reach of Issa or anybody in the Republican Congress.

The kidnapping of Malkin’s niece while simultaneously falsely accusing Malkin of being a “birther” was the taking of a hostage regarding the eligibility issue so that the media personalities would know that this later threat, now, of “guerrilla warfare” means the threat of actual criminal harm. Just like the run on the bank in September of 2008 served as a down payment showing that Soros’ goons weren’t afraid to make good on their threats in Oct of 2008.

That is what my gut is telling me about all this. I can’t check the timing of these things, or the sources of the false claims, etc. because I’ll be at work all day today. Maybe somebody else can check those for me.

... or maybe I am just posting a personal opinion about fox and how left they have turned. I am not alone of FR in this opinion. For more than two years... everyday I read where another FReeper comes to the same opinion. Your post on the other hand, screams exactly what you accuse me of doing.

Check this out...

“Politico has repeatedly relied on the discredited leftwing advocacy group Media Matters for America as a source for negative pieces about Fox News in recent months”

Fox News’s Steve Doocy swaps insults with Politico blogger Ben Smith

01/28/2011

Politico and the Fox News Channel continued what has become something of a feud this week, with “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy and Politico blogger Ben Smith swapping insults. On Tuesday, Smith wrote a blog post praising Esquire magazine’s recent profile of Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes, a piece entitled, “Why does Roger Ailes Hate America?” “If you haven’t checked it out,” Smith enthused, “a must-read.”

The next morning, Doocy struck back, reading on air some of the comments posted beneath Smith’s item on Politico. “Another hit piece by left wing extremist trash masquerading as official journalists in America,” read one. “Wow, Ben, you have some free time this afternoon obviously and you’re not using it to write another smear piece on Palin,” said another.

Politico and the Fox News Channel continued what has become something of a feud this week, with “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy and Politico blogger Ben Smith swapping insults. On Tuesday, Smith wrote a blog post praising Esquire magazine’s recent profile of Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes, a piece entitled, “Why does Roger Ailes Hate America?” “If you haven’t checked it out,” Smith enthused, “a must-read.”

The next morning, Doocy struck back, reading on air some of the comments posted beneath Smith’s item on Politico. “Another hit piece by left wing extremist trash masquerading as official journalists in America,” read one. “Wow, Ben, you have some free time this afternoon obviously and you’re not using it to write another smear piece on Palin,” said another.

Doocy also referred to Smith’s blog post as a “column,” something that seems to have struck a nerve with Smith, who immediately responded. “I stay out of opinion journalism, but must in my life have written something harsher about someone somewhere, without provoking a news outlet to risk what’s left of its reputation by reading anonymous blog comments on the air,” Smith wrote.

Without sourcing anyone from Fox News, or in fact anyone at all, Smith also suggested that Doocy had been ordered by management to attack him on the air. “Doocy’s rant, which he says he drew from reading my column yesterday, but which it’s hard to believe he wasn’t told to do, reflects a remarkably thin skin,” Smith wrote.

The exchange was not without context. Politico has repeatedly relied on the discredited leftwing advocacy group Media Matters for America as a source for negative pieces about Fox News in recent months, including a story that alleged Fox executives told editorial staff to avoid the term “public option” in talks about Obamacare, and another that claimed the network’s management “urged climate skepticism” in coverage of global warming.
