MMFA Prop Watch: The Week of February 3rd, 2012 by P.J. Salvatore 3 Feb 2012 post a comment Share This: Unless you missed it this week: Media Matters still refuses to condemn the violence in the Media Matters-endorsed OWS movement. Media Matters also refuses to answer why a "media site" is seemingly in violation of the rules binding 501 c(3)s by politicking. They were caught sending out emails to their "Democrat allies" last week. After failing to force censorship of Big Journalism's Dana Loesch the week prior (and again today), Media Matters is attempting the same blacklist technique with Red State's Erick Erickson. What's unclear is whether the motivation comes from their intolerance of diverse thought on the airwaves or bitterness at the lack of invitations MMFA staffers, namely Editor Eric Boehlert, receive themselves from networks. MMFA Editor Boehlert also refused to condemn or disavow his site's use of the slur "Israel firster." MMFA has received heavy criticism for its continued use of the slur, even after its use was criticized by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and MMFA ally and former journolister Spencer Ackerman. MMFA still hasn't walked back its claim that the insider trading scandal, which resulted in the now-passed STOCK Act, wasn't 'a big deal.' OUTSTANDING ITEMS Media Matters has yet to correct these glaring mistakes: MMFA owes Loesch an apology for Boehlert's embarrassing meltdown wherein he launched into a bitterly sexist rant directed towards her. MMFA has issued no comment on how CAP even called MMFA's apparent favorite term "antisemitic." This is why no actual media outlet takes Media Matters seriously and why some call them, with their comical propaganda, "irrelevant." The only network you'll see them on is MSNBC.
