    Hillary's phony soldiers The "phony soldier" story won't go away. It's splattered everywhere Ė on TV, in newspapers, talk radio, and it's all over the Internet. In my business, they say the controversy has "legs." The attack by anti-war liberals against Rush Limbaugh is being fueled by the media elites who despise Rush and have tried ceaselessly for years to get him thrown off the air. The same left-wing activists who have denounced the missions of our troops, and who venomously call our military personnel rapists and brutal thugs, now have the audacity to attack a titan of talk radio...

    A spokesman for Media Matters for America, which communicates directly with the White House in a weekly "strategy call," boasted in 2010 of President Obama's mistreatment of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a forum held by Al-Jazeera. The Daily Caller has published a report linking Media Matters for America to the anti-American, anti-Israel news network Al-Jazeera, primarily through the work of author M.J. Rosenberg, who has come under fire from Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz for using antisemitic language and alleging that American Jews display greater loyalty to Israel than the United States. Jamie Weinstein writes: Media Matters Action Network...

    Two left-leaning Washington organizations are facing heated criticism for their Israel-related coverage and commentary after throwing around the disparaging term "Israel firster" and accusing the Simon Wiesenthal Center -- a group dedicated to tolerance -- of being a "far-right" outfit.

    Media Matters, which describes itself on its web site as a, "progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media," has taken aim at MSNBC's Chris Matthews for what it says is a trend of "sexist displays." Media Matters has started a "take action" campaign, urging readers to contact MSNBC and express their disapproval of Matthews current attacks on Sen. Hillary Clinton and past comments. Karl Frisch, Media Matters spokesperson, tells TVNewser, "We encourage people to take action for a variety of reasons ó being able to point to a clear...

    The leftist outrage industry bagged a new trophy last week: MSNBCís Chris Matthews. The Soros-funded wing of the Democratic Party took down the rabidly antiwar and anti-Bush talk show host because he dared to tell the truth about the Shadow Partyís anointed presidential candidate. However, the media have ignored the role Hillary Clinton claims to have played in founding one of the main organizations doing the protesting. Last week, the host of MSNBCís ďHardballĒ issued an odd semi-apology for allegedly ďsexistĒ and dismissive comments he made about Hillary Clinton on the networkís early-riser show, The Morning Joe. Matthews told that...

Mrs. Clinton used private instead of government email and even established her own private email server that has...

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 23 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Media Matters for America today announced the winner of its 2005 "Misinformer of the Year" award. After much deliberation and a thorough -- and somewhat painful --review of the many distortions, false statements, and instances of misinformation we have corrected during the year, MSNBC's Chris Matthews takes home the prize. In 2005, Matthews called the majority of his fellow Americans "real whack-jobs"; praised a speech by President Bush as "brilliant" even before it was delivered; said that Bush sometimes "glimmers" with "sunny nobility"; and gushed at having his picture taken with the president, adding...

    Good grief. Over the last few days weíve seen one former Clinton aide and acolyte after another come out of the woodwork to defend yet another Clinton from yet another series of scandals. Itís like a tired, awful syndicated series thatís been cancelled but just wonít go away. In one corner, it was Lanny Davis being methodically taken apart by Fox Newsís Chris Wallace. In another corner was the Raginí Cajun, James Carville, whining about ďcockamamie right wing talking pointsĒ being responsible for this story. (The New York Times is well known, of course, for writing its stories based on...

    Constant solicitations for cash in the absence of an actual candidate arenít sitting well. In early November, with her party on the eve of an electoral walloping, Democrat Mary Tetreau had had enough. The Londonderry, New Hampshire activist was sick of the constant emails begging for money for a candidate who wasnít even running for office yet. When another plea landed in her inbox the day before the election, she unsubscribed. ďIím not going to be ready for Hillary until she announces sheís running for president,Ē said Tetreau, a three-decade veteran of New Hampshire primary politics, who called Ready for...

    David Brock on Monday abruptly resigned from the board of the super PAC Priorities USA Action, revealing rifts that threaten the big-money juggernaut being built to support Hillary Clintonís expected presidential campaign. In a resignation letter obtained by POLITICO, Brock, a close Clinton ally, accused Priorities officials of planting ďan orchestrated political hit jobĒ against his own pro-Clinton groups, American Bridge and Media Matters. Those groups ó along with another pro-Clinton group, the super PAC Ready for Hillary ó had their fundraising practices called into question last week by a New York Times report. It pointed out that veteran Democratic...
