The Media Matters Frenzy to Discredit Breitbart's Pigford Investigation
Using their own search engine, you can find at least twenty stories written by the Soros-funded, 501 (c)(3) welfare queens at Media Matters for America that were explicitly meant to discredit Andrew Breitbart's investigative efforts into what became known as Pigford -- a four-alarm scandal involving the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Friday morning, Breitbart's cause on behalf of those black farmers who had been legitimately discriminated against was fully vindicated on page A1 of the New York Times. Breitbart News' editor-in-chief has more on that here, but right now Media Matters is standing naked with egg all over their corrupt faces, and let us hope the rest of the media take notice.
Too many in media -- way too many -- consider Media Matters a legitimate organization that roots out so-called wrongdoing in conservative media. Thankfully, when it came to Pigford at least, the New York Times ignored Media Matters' dishonest campaign to nothing-to-see-here a legitimate story involving government corruption, the cynical use of race, and billions of taxpayer dollars.
But what does it reveal about Media Matters now that no less than the New York Times has proven that their frenzy of deliberate disinformation (20 articles over just a few months) was in fact a frenzy of deliberate disinformation?
Too many in the mainstream media want to believe Media Matters.
Too many in the mainstream media find Media Matters useful as confirmation of their own bias.
Too many in the mainstream media are grateful that Media Matters offers relentless rationalizations to ignore or shoot down stories that might make the left uncomfortable.
Personally, I like to believe that, embedded within the corrupt institution we call the mainstream media, are a noble few who want to bring honor to the highest ideals of their profession. But within that insidious bubble, these noble few are hoodwinked, hustled, and pressured into ideological conformity -- and the dishonest pages of Media Matters are a very important part of that conspiracy.
Maybe, just maybe, some scales fell from some eyes today.
