    A conservative watchdog group filed three complaints against organizations founded and operated by Media Matters founder David Brock. The Patriots Foundation accused Brock’s nonprofit group American Bridge Foundation of violating IRS rules by transferring $2.7 million in tax-exempt assets to a for-profit media company owned by Brock. “We’re calling on the IRS to conduct a thorough investigation of Brock’s organizations and to hold them accountable for all violations,” Patriots Foundation president Craig Robinson said in a statement. Media Matters for America founder David Brock reaped illegal profits through the transfer of millions from a nonprofit he founded to a for-profit...

    A Democratic group expected to spend millions of dollars targeting President Donald Trump received over $100,000 in stock shares from an anonymous donor in a giant Chinese tech company, according to tax filings. American Bridge 21st Century accepted a gift in 2018 of 450 shares into Baidu, a Google-like tech company closely affiliated with China’s ruling Communist Party, according to the group’s 2018 IRS filings. The Washington Free Beacon first reported on the donation Wednesday. It is unclear if American Bridge sold the stocks during the past two years, according to the Free Beacon’s report. Democratic operative David Brock founded...
  • Giuliani's attack on Soros shows the liberal Jewish billionaire remains a top conservative target

    President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani earlier this week upheld what has become a conservative tradition: attacking billionaire philanthropist George Soros. “Don't tell me I'm anti-Semitic if I oppose him,” Giuliani, a Roman Catholic, said in an interview with New York magazine that quickly went viral. “Soros is hardly a Jew. I'm more of a Jew than Soros is. I probably know more about — he doesn't go to church, he doesn't go to religion — synagogue.” Among those who did tell Giuliani he was, at the least, spreading anti-Semitic propaganda, was Jonathan Greenblatt, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League....

    HILLARY'S SECRET WAR The gelding of Rupert Murdoch Posted: July 14, 20051:00 a.m. Eastern Editor's note: The following is an eye-opening look into New York Times best-selling author Richard Poe's revealing book, "Hillary's Secret War." Whereas Edward Klein's book on the New York senator reveals previously unknown aspects of her personal life, Poe's expose focuses on how Hillary Clinton and the left's "shadow government" have labored to put her and her far-left agenda in the White House by controlling the still-uncensored flow of real news to Americans – via the Internet.If that sounds too fantastic to be true, read...

    Records recently posted online by the FBI indicate that it did little to investigate allegations from private sources connected to Republicans about a scheme in which associates of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to exploit their connection to her to profit from the turmoil in Libya in 2011. The FBI received the documents in June 2016, around the same time it launched an exhaustive, three-year investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia based, in part, on information from private sources connected to Democrats that in the main would prove to be false – the Steele dossier. ...

    On August 7, the day after Tucker Carlson called America’s white-supremacy problem “a hoax,” the Fox News host announced a weeklong trip “to the wilderness” to fish with his son. Unlike other hosts on the network who’ve come back from vacation to find their airtime filled, Carlson eased back into his routine on Monday with more pedestrian fare, including segments on Joe Biden’s fitness for the presidency and Elizabeth Warren’s Native American misstep. But not all his pre-holiday advertisers joined him upon his return. According to the watchdog group Media Matters for America, in the past 11 days, Tucker Carlson...
  • Vanity: What Does It Mean That The Dayton Shooter Liked AOC & Media Matters?

    A generalized starter question to move from that point to the more specific... The Dayton shooter liked AOC, Elizabeth Warren, Media Matters, Will Sommers of Daily Beast, Ben Collins of NBC, said he didn't want to have to wait for Socialism and hated Trump and conservatives. The first shooter, the El Paso one, supported UBI and Universal Healthcare and stated these programs might be viaible if millions died. Sounds like population control so as to allocate natural resources. And these (UBI and Universal Healthcare) are hardly right wing issues. So are these two shooters actually Left Wing Supremacists?

    Deadlocked on a party-line vote, the Federal Election Commission has dismissed a complaint that Hillary Clinton’s campaign illegally coordinated with a super PAC during the 2016 presidential election cycle. Continuing a recent trend with the embattled regulatory agency that is currently missing two of six commissioners, it was the Republican commissioners, not Democrats, who voted to stonewall enforcement action over the complaint. Just one month before the 2016 presidential election, Campaign Legal Center filed a complaint with the FEC alleging that the Clinton campaign illegally coordinated with Correct the Record, a hybrid PAC run by Media Matters for America founder...

    Throughout our history, free speech has been cherished in the United States of America. Thankfully, we have the First Amendment which mandates that “Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech.” It not only protects this right, but also the free press and other precious liberties such as the right to exercise religious beliefs, assemble, and “petition the Government for the redress of grievances.”Unfortunately, in recent years, there has been an assault on free speech. On many college campuses, conservative speakers are not welcome. Often, when a conservative is invited, progressive groups attempt to persuade the administration to cancel...

    Vox reporter Carlos Maza, whose pressure campaign against YouTube contributed to the mass-demonetization and banning of independent media and right-wing channels, is a former Media Matters employee who defended the violent Antifa movement. The Vox reporter who YouTube listened to, causing the #VoxAdpocalypse, also encouraged the recent trend physical attacks against pro-Brexit politicians in the United Kingdom, in which left-wing protesters hurled milkshakes at them. “Milkshake them all,” said Maza on Twitter, which has not restricted his account for promoting physical assaults on politicians.
  • Media Matters' Fake-News Pro-Slavery Headline

    In journalism, a "lede" is the introductory section of a news story, intended to entice the reader into reading the full story. Traditionally, the lede is the first (or "lead") paragraph. But in today's fast-paced news media, enticements include the story's headline, subheading and a short summary that precedes the actual story, usually distinguished by a different typeface. The term "burying the lede" refers to a newspaper story that is downplaying the significance of the actual story by "burying" important information deep in the article. Now, "burying the lede" ought not be confused with "fake news," an expression popularized by...

    In the wake of the release of the Robert Mueller Report, New York Times "conservative" columnist David Brooks seems to have done some soul-searching and has concluded that President Donald Trump is owed an apology. Of course, among those who owe such an apology to Trump is Brooks himself as we shall see in his Tuesday column, "We’ve All Just Made Fools of Ourselves — Again." Um, who is this "We," kemo sabe? Actually what Brooks really means are the Democrats and liberals and Never Trumpers who have been constantly slamming Trump since the 2016 election and even before. Of course,...

    YouTube has terminated an account that was seemingly operating as a secondary channel for Alex Jones and Infowars after its first one was banned last August. A statement from YouTube confirmed that the channel, Resistance News, was banned for aiding in Jones’ ban evasion. The channel carried reuploaded live streams from Jones’ deleted Infowars channel and included new conspiracy theory videos as well. YouTube will remove channels that are dedicated to live-streaming Infowars content or uploading videos of full Infowars live streams without additional context or commentary. “When users violate these policies repeatedly, like our policies against hate speech and...

    Talia Lavin, who resigned from the New Yorker in disgrace last year after helping whip up a Twitter mob claiming a disable Marine veteran was a Nazi, has been hired by NYU’s journalism school to teach a class titled “Reporting on the Far Right.” From the Wrap: Lavin’s undergraduate course “Reporting on the Far Right” will kick off in the fall semester of 2019 at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. In its official faculty bio, the university billed Lavin as an expert in “far-right extremism and social justice.”At least one current NYU journalism student questioned the decision to...

    Fox News top host Tucker Carlson has been under fire by far leftists and their media allies for a string of dredged-up comments made to some shock-jock dating from before his days at Fox, with big calls for protests and advertiser boycotts. Leading the charge has been the world's premier slime machine, Media Matters, described in all its glory by Sharyl Attkisson in her book, "The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What YouSee, What You Think, and How You Vote." The Soros-bankrolled outfit has made a humongous cacaphony about Carlson, amplifying its calls for boycotts and for Fox ending...

    It dropped yesterday. Over a decade ago, Fox News host Tucker Carlson said something shocking…on a shock jock’s radio show. Golly! I’m downright flabbergasted—not! For those who don’t have Sirius XM, Carlson was on Bubba The Love Sponge’s show on Howard 100. Yes, that’s Howard Stern’s channel. Now, to be honest, I never really listened to Bubba’s show. Sorry, I was a loyal Howard Stern listener throughout high school and college. I’m still a fan, though I haven’t listened to the show in years. My commute to work is not that bad and the cost was just not worth it....

    Newly released recordings of Tucker Carlson — the third set made public in as many days — feature the prominent Fox News host joking about having sex with a teenage beauty pageant contestant. In the tapes, Carlson also makes a series of sexist, misogynist and cruel remarks about the young woman, who was a contestant in a 2007 Miss Teen USA competition. . . . The unearthed audio is the latest in a series of tumultuous revelations that began Sunday, when Media Matters released audio of Carlson degrading women and flippantly discussing child rape in old radio interviews. On Monday,...

    Media Matters president and far-left activist Angelo Carusone is under fire after The Daily Caller unearthed hateful and inflammatory comments he made in the past about everything from transvestites to ethnicity. Carusone has been leading a campaign against Fox News host Tucker Carlson for things he said on a radio program several years ago. Sensing hypocrisy, Daily Caller reporter Peter Hasson uncovered an old blog in which Carusone allegedly used hateful rhetoric against a series of groups. “Carusone’s now-defunct blog included degrading references to ‘trannies,’ ‘jewry’ and Bangladeshis,” Hasson wrote. “Carusone posted a lengthy diatribe in November 2005 about a...
