Inside Media Matters: Erratic behavior, close coordination with White House and news organizations
Daily Caller ^ | February 13, 2012 | Tucker Carlson and Vince Coglianese

Posted on 02/12/2012 9:01:46 PM PST by Rufus2007

David Brock was smoking a cigarette on the roof of his Washington, D.C. office one day in the late fall of 2010 when his assistant and two bodyguards suddenly appeared and whisked him and his colleague Eric Burns down the stairs.

Brock, the head of the liberal nonprofit Media Matters for America, had told friends and co-workers that he feared he was in imminent danger from right-wing assassins and needed a security team to keep him safe.

The threat he faced while smoking on his roof? “Snipers,” a former co-worker recalled.

If they are not actually out to get you, you can’t say that you are not paranoid.

We need more exposes on the left. I’m pleasantly surprised to this from Tucker Carlson.

"actually hilarious."

A disturbed individual empowering the insane death cult of leftism more effectively than the right could ever dream of advancing human liberty.

Tell me now, tell me the hilarious part. Smarten up, patriot.

Isn’t Media Matters a 503c (not supposed to take part in politics)?

I read the first page and left. I hope everyone has Ghostery or something like it on their system. Even that didn’t stop all the stuff they’ve got going on there.

Media Matters is all excited that they got Imus and Dobbs fired and lost Becks sponsors. As far as I see, they are all doing quite well today. They are a;so proud that they write all of MSLSD’s news. As far as I see they have no ratings. What a joke and waste of time they are.

I find myself speculating if there was and/or is any connection between Media Matters and with ‘journolist,’ jourolist members.

Brock is a Soros toadie, reportedly paid by him to set up Media Matters, and I think his “body guards” are doing more with his body than guarding it, given his past.

Since Brock has become his own cult, like many other leftist leaders, any bets on how long it is before he implodes and ends up in a cuckoo house?

The better question: What tingles are prompted in the reptilian portion of Mr Brock's "brain" are being induced by knowledge that what he and his cohorts are doing is going to create a reaction from the body politic?
Could it be that some of these folks know what they're doing is on the wrong side of history?

David Brock has bodyguards? To protect him from spurned homosexual lovers? This is laughable.

David Brock has always been prone to hysteria.

Interesting that Brock, a cocaine-addled, bipolar, paranoid psychotic homo, is a BFF of Hellery Clinton, given that he is the author of the famous “Troopergate” article that was published in a 1993 issue of The Weekly Standard. Kindred spirits, most likely.

-——to defend his boss from unseen threats———

Unseen but perhaps not unknown. There are whispers.

The word on the street is that The Affirmative Coalition for the Final Solution (ACFS) does in fact have snipers imported from Bulgaria on work visas. The final solution involves extra constitutional means for protecting the first Amendment from usurpers. Appearing in silhouette on a roof top is a dangerous condition

Yes, Media Matters is a 501(c)(3). David Brock also has a “Media Matters Action Network” organized under the 501(c)(4) rules. Both are likely violating their tax-exempt status.

You're not that ill informed. You're the problem.
