President Obama served eight years on the board of a charity that is a top donor to the embattled Media Matters for America progressive activist organization.
Obama is also tied to numerous other top Media Matters donors and fundraisers, including a foundation run by the finance chairman of his 2008 presidential campaign, Penny Pritzker, WND has learned.
Last week, the Daily Caller released a list of grants to Media Matters.
A WND review of the donor list found a number of deep ties to Obama.

The information comes amid reports that White House staffers held regular meetings with Media Matters, which is under fire for unusual tactics, including compiling a de facto enemies list; announcing an all-out campaign of guerrilla warfare and sabotage aimed at the Fox News Channel; and reportedly seeking to investigate the personal lives of targeted reporters and news personalities.
The Media Matters donor list included the Pritzker Family Foundation, which donated a total of $400,000 to the progressive attack group in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
The Pritzker family is best known for owning the Hyatt hotel chain and is considered to be one of Americas wealthiest families.
The family foundation is directed by Penny Pritzker, who served as the national finance chairman of Obamas 2008 presidential campaign.
Penny Pritzker is currently a member of the Obamas Economic Recovery Advisory Board, which formulates and evaluates economic policy for the Obama administration.
Another top donor to Media Matters, according to the released donor list, is the Joyce Foundation. Obama served on the Joyce Foundation board from 1994 to 2002.
Joyce gave a $400,000 grant to Media Matters in 2010, purportedly to support a gun and public safety issue initiative.

I was thinking that the bastard Soros pretty much underwrites all this Media Matters crap.
