The liberal Media Matters for America organization once accepted a $50,000 grant to monitor and attack religious news outlets, according to tax returns examined by The Daily Caller.
The grant came in 2006 from the ARCA Foundation, a 60-year-old philanthropy that funds Democratic causes. The foundation gave Media Matters the $50,000 to support a Religious Broadcasting Project to expand the monitoring and fact checking of religious broadcasts, according to its tax return that year.
Becca Freedman, a program associate at the ARCA Foundation, told TheDC by phone that she could not immediately provide any details about the grant because the executive director who worked there in 2006 is no longer employed by the foundation.
That former executive director, Donna Edwards, is now a Democratic member of Congress representing Marylands 4th District.
The details of Media Matters religious monitoring project are not clear, but under Internal Revenue Service regulations a non-profit organization must honor any restrictions that individual or institutional funders place on their donations.
Jess Levin, a spokeswoman for Media Matters, did not return an email seeking comment. The organization has not commented publicly on stories from The Daily Callers Inside Media Matters series since it began Monday.

That the inescapable bright light of God's Truth would shine in every dark corner...
...and expose every lie and liar who hates God, the Gospel.. and our God-given liberties.
Seems like a lot of 'Rats and more than a few of their behind-the-curtain creepy-crawly minions (like Media Matters) are now exposed....
I poked around and couldn't find where they get their money. The folks they fund are the "usual suspects".
I can only hope so!!
It only takes 536 replacements...
(100 Senators.... 435 Reps.... 1 POTUS...)
.... And we throw them ALL OUT!
OMG! It's EVIL tobacco money!!!
