Obama Justice Department Now Referring Reporters to Media Matters for Information on Fast and Furious
Late Friday afternoon, Free Beacon reporter CJ Ciaramella requested a comment from the Justice Department about my new book Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Coverup. This was the response he received.
That's right folks. Media Matters, the far Left website funded by George Soros, is now serving as a mouth piece for the United States Department of Justice. Not only did DOJ refer Ciaramella to Media Matters for information about Operation Fast and Furious, but didn't even refer him to material that had anything to do with his original question about the FBI covering up the existence of a third weapon found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Ciaramella writes:
The Department of Justice is using the liberal “watchdog” group Media Matters for America to deflect questions about the Fast and Furious scandal, including those regarding a gun that might have been used in the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
A new book raises questions as to whether the FBI hid the existence of a weapon recovered at the scene of murdered U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. Conservative commentator and author Katie Pavlich lays out evidence she says points to a FBI cover-up to protect a confidential informant in her recently released book, Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-up,
In response to an inquiry from the Free Beacon, a Justice Department spokeswoman said in an email that she “was told to direct your questions to the FBI, and also to provide you with a link to this story: http://mediamatters.org/research/201204190011”
The link was to a story at the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America supposedly refuting many of Pavlich’s claims. Media Matters is a partisan organization whose founder, David Brock, is also running a pro-Obama super PAC.
For more than a year now, Americans have been stonewalled, ignored and disrespected in our quests for information about the Obama administration's lethal Operation Fast and Furious. The fact that the Obama Justice Department, headed by Attorney General Eric Holder, is now sending reporters to the far Left, George Soros funded, Media Matters for factual information about one of the bloodiest scandals in U.S. history, is no surprise and totally predictable. This is just an extension of the Obama administration's shameless coverup and refusal to tell the truth about Fast and Furious. The claims made by Media Matters match up nearly exactly with claims made by Justice Department officials in their defense against involvement in Fast and Furious.
The Justice Department has blood on its hands, there are at least 300 Mexican citizens dead and two of our federal agents have been murdered as a result of this program. The Obama administration as a whole refuses to take responsibility and provide transparency for an American public outraged by this scandal. The Justice Department is responsible for upholding the law in a fair, unbiased and non-political manner, but the current politically appointed DOJ leadership has chosen to engage in promoting a far Left and controversial agenda. Apparently, the new spokesperson for the Justice Department is Media Matters, and just in case you're wondering, Media Matters is headed by David Brock, who just so happens to be in charge of a pro-Obama super PAC. Media Matters also enjoys tax exempt status as a non-profit, despite being a mouth piece for the White House and the DOJ.
If you want the truth, read my book Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Coverup. It is clear we won't be getting it from the Justice Department on this crucial issue.
I AM UTTERLY SHOCKED AT THIS BLATANT DISPLAY OF HONESTY
(really, I am )
Surely Media Matters isn’t tax exempt.
Isn’t it amazing how the left want to take OUR guns but GIVE guns to drug cartels and who knows who else.
Looks like they want guns/drugs in, our guns out.
Searching didn’t catch it. Thanks for the link.
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.
Silly rabbi, taxes are only for the little people (i.e. conservatives)! Why do you think the liberals are always wanting to raise them?
I just happened to notice it a couple of days ago under the breaking news sidebar a couple of days ago.
*note to self: proofread your posts lol.
I’m sure Romney and a republican justice department would get away with this too because he’s obviously just as bad as Hussein.
No doubt media matters is up to its armpits in blood and gore!
Media Matters? Now there’s an objective source... /s
