    As Hillary Clinton has spent this week apologizing for using a personal email account as secretary of state, a group closely-aligned with her campaign is out with a new report defending the Democratic presidential candidateís off-the-books email arrangement. Correct the Record, which was founded by close Clinton ally David Brock and has been paid $275,000 by the Clinton campaign for ďresearch,Ē insists that Clintonís use of the private server and a personal email account as the nationís top diplomat was a wise move in light of the numerous hacks carried out against the federal governmentís computer systems.

In the book, titled "Killing the Messenger: The Right-Wing Plot to Derail Hillary Clinton and Hijack Your Government,Ē Brock accuses senior politics editor and former Washington bureau chief Carolyn Ryan of helping to turn the paper into a ďmegaphone for conservative propagandaĒ by unfairly targeting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    David Brock is a longtime Clinton ally, self-described liar and the paranoid founder of Media Matters. Some background on him: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...

    The Clinton confidant under scrutiny on Capitol Hill over detailed Libya memos he sent to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told lawmakers earlier this week he has been pulling in $200,000 a year from Clinton ally David Brock's media operation, congressional sources tell FoxNews.com. The figure is far higher than initially reported. While the payments to Sidney Blumenthal may not reflect any apparent conflict of interest, his work with Brock's liberal advocacy and media groups was a focus of his high-profile deposition on Tuesday before the House Benghazi committee. Republicans' rationale for the questioning was that his financial and political...

    By retaining longtime Clinton loyalist James Carville as a regular columnist, the liberal watchdog Media Matters for America has increased its influence as a player in the 2016 presidential election. But Media Matters may be edging toward violating the tax rules that govern nonprofit organizations. Carville's new role at Media Matters was announced Thursday, following two weeks of controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton, a likely Democratic presidential candidate and former secretary of state. Media Matters was founded by another Clinton friend, David Brock, one of the rare Clinton acolytes willing to defend her amid reports that she violated federal law by...

    Media Matters founder and Hillary Clinton ally David Brock has co-authored a 90-page e-book called ďThe Benghazi Hoax,Ē a tome intended as a counterweight of sorts to criticisms of the former Secretary of State and President Barack Obama over the 2012 attacks in Libya. Brock previewed the book in an interview with POLITICO last week in the liberal groupís Washington offices. He described it as an important and necessary resource on the Benghazi attacks that left four Americans dead last Sept. 11 ó and which some congressional Republicans have shown continued interest in probing. Brock insisted the book is not...

    Remember the 'Flush Rush' boycott attempted by David Brock and Media Matters which called for advertisers to drop their sponsorships of Rush Limbaugh's radio show? How did that work out in the long run? According to liberal radio talk host Thom Hartmann on CNN's Reliable Sources yesterday it completely backfired because it ended up hurting liberal shows: David Brock and Media Matters were leading the boycott Limbaugh crusade, which did presumably some damage to the Limbaugh show. I can tell you it did a lot of damage to progressive talk radio, because a lot of advertisers right across the board...

    On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on ''media reform.'' She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists. The 2,500-person event was sponsored by a group called Free Press, one of more than 180 different media-related organizations that receives money from liberal billionaire George Soros. Soros, who first made a name for himself in investing and currency trading, now makes his name in politics and policy. Since the 2004 election, the controversial financier has used his influence and billions to push a laundry list...

    March 16, 2013 Ann Coulter berates GOP for their divisions on immigration policy in CPAC speech Laine Milam As she has done many times before, bestselling author Ann Coulter delivered an uncensored critique of the Republican party at this year‚Äôs Conservative Political Action Conference. Her criticisms this year were harshest when it came to the party‚Äôs current divide on the topic of comprehensive immigration reform.Following up on her column from last month, Coulter argued that the GOP needs to have a tough but cohesive message on immigration policy, but not the one that many party leaders have touted lately.¬ďOne public...

    Gun control isnít about banning guns, itís about banning people who arenít well-connected from having guns. If youíre a Wal-Mart shopper then youíre not supposed to have a gun. If youíre David Brock, then thatís a whole other storyÖ A staffer at left-wing Media Matters for America committed numerous felonies in the District of Columbia and around the country by carrying a firearm to defend the organizationís founder, David Brock, The Daily Caller has learned. -SNIP-TheDC has learned that by that time, Brock had armed his assistant ó who had no permit to carry a concealed firearm ó with a...

    You may recall a Daily Caller piece from earlier this year that exposed the odd behavior of Media Matters founder David Brock as the reincarnation of Mel Gibsonís character in the 1997 film Conspiracy Theory. As a refresher, hereís a typical day in the life: 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...

    Media Mattersí Founder David Brock showed no shame when he was caught illegally using guns for his own personal protection. Indeed, Media Mattersí continues to lash out at others who own guns or support letting individuals use guns for the own protection, even increasing their attacks. In April alone, Media Matters ran 32 articles attacking the NRA alone. Additional pieces have defended the Obama administrationís Fast & Furious program and dealt with other gun related topics. Media Matters also attacked me three times over the last two weeks: I had an op-ed in the New York Daily News and an...

    The American Spectator ^ | March 27, 2012 | Jeffrey Lord
    It was a set up. From start to finish. A quite specific, quite detailed plot to get Rush Limbaugh, ruin his career, and drive him off the air. Next targets? Sean Hannity and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Lots to cover here. Let's start with Mr. Angelo Carusone. Who is Angelo Carusone? Today he is now the "Director of Online Strategy for Media Matters for America." But a few years back? He was just your basic left-wing law student with a standard left-wing passion. That passion? Totalitarian-style censorship.

    David Brock is Media Matters founder, and recently, I have seen many posts ridiculing him for being homosexual. David Brockís sexual orientation is not the issue. Making fun of it just lowers us to the level of the Leftís personal attack strategy. We can do better. There is utterly no need to mention that David Brock is a giggling little donut-puncher, or a skipping lavender-scented pillow-biter. We do not need to mention that David Brock is a pearl-necklace adorned tumblebunny, nor do we need to say he is a limp-wristed prancing knob-jockey. Never will it cross my keyboard to mention...

    Politico ^ | 3/21/12 2:37 PM EDT | Brian Glicklich, Spokesperson, Rush Limbaugh Show
    David Brock is so outraged at Rush Limbaughís words of three weeks ago that he started organizing a protest ó almost 3 years ago. It was planned ahead and activated at the first moment Brock could manipulate a media frenzy. Make no mistake, Brockís ďmarketplace of ideasĒ offers only one brand: Brand Brock. All others will be forced off the shelves with intimidation and lies. Media Matters for America stands for censorship, and nothing more than that. Their ginned-up election year anger is directed at the words of their media political opposition ó similar expressions are ignored when used by...

    The financial model that fueled Rush Limbaughís radio show seems to have disintegrated in recent weeks, with at least 100 advertisers reportedly abandoning his radio program. For more than two decades, ďThe Rush Limbaugh ShowĒ has promoted his brand of misogyny, racism and general intolerance to an audience of more than 15 million people on as many as 600 radio stations. He has accused actor Michael J. Fox of ďexaggerating the effectsĒ of Parkinsonís disease; called the National Organization for Women ďnagsĒ who ďare a bunch of whores to liberalismĒ; and just last week referred to a Washington Post reporter...

    Media Matters chief David Brock paid a former domestic partner $850,000 after being threatened with damaging information involving the organizationís donors and the IRS Ė a deal that Brock later characterized as a blackmail payment, according to legal documents obtained by FoxNews.com. In an acrimonious lawsuit settled at the end of last year, Brock accused William Grey of making repeated threats to expose him to the "scorn or ridicule of his employees, donors and the press in demanding money and property." Brock claimed in legal papers that he sold a Rehoboth Beach, Del., home he once shared with Grey in...
