Is Media Matters breaking the law in its 'war' on Fox News?
The Examiner ^ | March 27, 2011 | Mark Tapscott

Posted on 03/28/2011 4:16:44 PM PDT by WashingtonSource

Media Matters, the George Soros-backed legion of liberal agit-prop shock troops based in the nation's capital, has declared war on Fox News, and in the process quite possibly stepped across the line of legality.

David Brock, MM's founder, was quoted Saturday by Politico promising that his organization is mounting "guerrila warfare and sabotage" against Fox News, which he said "is not a news organization. It is the de facto leader of the GOP, and it is long past time that it is treated as such by the media, elected officials and the public.”

Laws don’t matter.

Duh, this is the era of the Obamaloons.

“Justice Department” is the latest Oxymoron.

And it’s headed by a registered moron.

Oh yes, it's a federal case, where a charitable 503C orgainization becomes political... Let me sit over here and wait for the Holder injustice department to being an investigation, which I'm sure they'll get to right after they finish suing that school district over disallowing the muslim teacher from attending the haj this year, after they've finished forcing Dayton, OH's police department to allow Black applicants who've failed the tests onto the police department, and after they've finished the "New Black Panther Party" election farce.

I'll just wait over here...

Does the MSM still perpetuate the farce that this piece of trash, Brock, was ever a conservative? And what’s with pseudo-conservatives named David? Brock, Frum, Gergen, Cameron. I’m sure there are more.

A threat against a news organization must be taken seriously.

What if the shoe were on the other foot?

I am sure there would be no delay or equivocation then.

Any news organization that is subject to threats of sabotage or willful violence should be investigated throoughly if not by the DOJ the ncertainly by the DHS and failing that THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

As Mark Levin just said, Media Matters is a criminal front organization.

I guess it depends on what they intend to do. Digging up dirt isn’t illegal but can blow up in their faces. If they try to use personal info for blackmail its obviously illegal.

The threat to use sabotage is interesting but you know they’ll rely on useful idiots for acts of vandalism. Its not illegal to lie to the media so that doesn’t mean much.

The thing is that they’ve been trying these things all along and they have failed miserably. My guess is that they’re trying to nudge the useful idiots into acting for them by breaking windows, vandalism, hacking computers etc.

Someone should go out and follow David Brock on a Saturday night. We all know what kind of video spectacle that would produce.

disrupt his commercial interests

How can that possibly not be a crime? What if I decide to disrupt the corner dollar store? Would that be a crime?

You want to see the “Justice” Department and the Obama Administration swing into action?

Just have a Tea Party group start a “guerrila warfare and sabotage” effort against MSNBC.

Mark Levin spoke about the “criminal front group” Media Matters, March 28, 2011, on the Mark Levin Show:

“I have been using the phrase “criminal front group” to describe this group Media Matters now for many, many years. I have explained in great detail what a 501C3 non-profit, non-partisan charitable organization is under the Internal Revenue Code because I study these things, as does my legal group.

I have also used the phrase “tortuous business interference” for anybody who seeks, including them, to interfere with my program, and so these words [phrases] are getting around now apparently, and these arguments are getting around now, apparently.

When you talk about Media Matters, do as I do, and have done for years. Refer to it as the “criminal front group” Media Matters.

And the reason I call it a “criminal front group” is because it is taking contributions from individuals. Those individuals can deduct them from their own income taxes. Media Matters, being a non-profit charitable organization, does not pay any taxes on it, and yet it basically is a laundering operation that uses tax-exempt money, which people deduct their contributions on their own income taxes from, to amass a huge amount of money-—about $10 million a year-—in order to undertake what are clearly political operations.

And I have been calling on the Internal Revenue Service to audit and investigate the “criminal front group” Media Matters now for several years, and there is absolutely a rock-solid basis to do it.

And if they do it, and I believe one day they may well, they need to make sure they get hold of all emails, all hard drives, all hard paper document communications, and telephone logs because I believe what they will find is a shadowy coordination effort between this organization and, among these organizations this one is the hub, and Democrat operatives, Democrat public officials, and Democrat organizations.

Time has long past for the Internal Revenue Service to do its job.”
