Skip to comments.Media Matters called for private investigators 'to look into the personal lives' of Fox employees

A little after 1 p.m. on Sept. 29, 2009, Karl Frisch emailed a memo to his bosses, Media Matters for America founder David Brock and president Eric Burns. In the first few lines, Frisch explained why Media Matters should launch a Fox Fund whose mission would be to attack the Fox News Channel.
Simply put, Frisch wrote, the progressive movement is in need of an enemy. George W. Bush is gone. We really dont have John McCain to kick around any more. Filling the lack of leadership on the right, Fox News has emerged as the central enemy and antagonist of the Obama administration, our Congressional majorities and the progressive movement as a whole.
We must take Fox News head-on in a well funded, presidential-style campaign to discredit and embarrass the network, making it illegitimate in the eyes of news consumers.

The DNC boys know that they are in big trouble when they decide to turn their little homo ‘RAT loose on FOX News.
I'm sure Holder and the boys at IRS will jump right on this...
I listened to the handwringing by all of the fox shows tonight about the unscrupulousness of Media Matters and the methods of the left and I laughed. Wake up and figure it out.
WTF?? I say investigate the people at Media Matters!
This is from the period when Glen Beck’s daily 5pm TV show was literally KILLING THEM, every single day.
Soros said he would get even, and tried to warn Murdock off, but when that didn’t work, out comes the criminal charges against NewsCorp in Europe, and Beck is off the air.
Remember folks, this is a GLOBAL MOVEMENT we are fighting, not just some college radicals in the U.S.
Beck spoke about a Soros lieutenant basically threatening (Vito-style) his own chief of staff, telling them to back off.
While Fox and probably Beck were undoubtedly the recipient of intense pressure, GB did indeed land on his feet with GBTV - two hours every afternoon, plus other very good programming that lays the left bare. I remember him saying in the last month on Fox: “The Left will long for the days when I was only on one hour a day.”
Now, how much $$ did Soros funnel into Media Matters?
Is it anywhere close to the 2-4 MILLION viewers he had on FOX News?
Obama and his minions could care less about him, now.
They achieved what they wanted, they got him off the Magic Squawking Box in the Sheeple’s living room at 5PM.
Seems all we have left is F.R. for our news and Freepers can analyze it better than any media.
I haven't had FOX on for weeks now, thought I would tune in, but not until I feel sure they have gotten over Whitney, which won't be for another 2 weeks, I'm sure.
What’s interesting is that there are probably a number of wh9iney little FReepers who are siding with the Democrats in this matter.
Media Smatters? What’s that?
I think so too, annieokie. With Drudge, Dally Caller, Hot Air, NRO, Fox (and many other outlets) being very pro-Romney, you cannot find honest journalism. I read a story off a link from TownHall to Huffpo and they actually have a fair article on the race (and the comments of the readers are very eye opening)
I wish somebody would tell CoastToCoastAM that! Eleven years of Bush bashing continue through last Saturday night with three more hours of hatin' on Bush.
Must need an extra large stocking cap
No matter how EVIL Democrats can be, Alan finds it acceptable. He is Evil. He is ugly outside and to the bone. He make Carville look almost presentable.
lol.... I did not know they brought him back. I do not know if the 'foxes' poll liberals to see how much liberals HATE FOX news, but that is a poll I would love to see get done. I know some 'red' liberals that despise with a RED rage FOX News.... I used to 'feel' sorry for some of my liberal family and friends for being so unbalanced. Then after seeing some of the Jon Stewart media stunts pulled by some of the fox readers and their wise sage analysts I was forced to see my 'liberal' family and friends had a point.
And let US not forget Roger Ailes good buddy stalking Sarah to write his book of filth and vile smears.... I won't mind one little bit for when the exotic foxes get their comeuppances....
And what they can’t find, they’ll fabricate.
Pi$$ on Fox! Both their channels. They’ve just turned out Judge Napolitano tonight and the story goes that Eric Bolling and David Asman are going to loose their shows as well on FBN. Over @FNC, O’gasbag and Hannity have their heads so far up Romney’s a$$ that they are loosing their tans. I usually hate Greta, but she’s coming up as the only one I can stomach. So Media Matters, you can have at FOX. Fire at will, they are no longer on my list to watch.
Greta will have five shows wondering aloud if this is possible.
This is a tactic they use: To disrupt and muzzle those who reveal the truth about their dealings. I am sure Zer0 is taking pleasure in seeing Fox jerked around by his surrogate thugs.
If they dig up dirt on FOX journalists - just IMAGINE the dirt Murdoch could dig up on the lefty MSM journalists [a lot of them got MAJOR skeletons in their closets] ...
And Murdoch DOESN'T need to create a "fund" to bankroll it - he's got more money than God ...
Actually, they couldn't care less.
Well no more Fox.
And when are some rich Conservatives going to start a cable news channel that is truthful and thereby Conservative. One that doesn’t lean over backwards trying to be “fair and balanced”. Truth doesn’t sit on a fence.
Is this the same Eric Burns who used to appear on that Fox Saturday show about media bias? If so, he probably already knows about a lot of skeletons at FNC.
Note to left: If your ideology didn’t require revisionist history, outright lies, and rhetorical slight-of-hand to remain viable, you wouldn’t have to resort to attacking ANY media outlet, now would you?
When FOX brought back that disgusting, vile satanic Alan Colmes, that did it for me and now this elections cycle and blind adoration for Mitt finally sealed it. Alan is the most vicious ugly hateful depraved person in the media I have ever witnessed. -—————
I think Colmes is second. CNN’s James Carville comes in first, in my book. He’s the one who decided within minutes of 9-11 he and the media would demonize Bush. And they did for years upon years upon years. Then they jumped to Governor Palin....Colmes only follows.
Ha! That’s one dude who would look better with even a bad wig on.
Visual argument against forceps deliveries.
Can we hire gang member thugs to go beat Media Matters employees to death?
