Your tax dollars at work America! If Media Matters for America was serious about being a “watchdog” group they wouldn’t go after the new media that picks up MSM slack. Instead they’d go after The New York Times, NBC Nightly News, ABC World News, etc. for NOT doing their jobs. But then again we all know the truth: MMfA doesn’t care about the truth or facts unless it benefits them and their liberal politicians.
Yesterday Eric Holder lashed out at The Daily Caller blaming them for all the Operation Fast & Furious attention. Our very own Dana Loesch pointed out that this isn’t the first time the administration has done this. You all know I’ve been working hard trying to get the rest of the media to cover Operation Fast and Furious. Cam Edwards, host of Cam & Company, talks Fast & Furious every night. Katie Pavlich from Townhall covers it as much as Mr. Boyle. Don’t forget Sharyl Attkisson, the only reporter in the MSM who is reporting Fast & Furious. She was cursed out by a White House staffer for asking too many questions.
Matt Gertz at Media Matters quickly came to Mr. Holder’s defense. Mr. Gertz claims Mr. Holder is right about The Daily Caller being behind all the calls for Mr. Holder’s resignation. Interesting, but Holder should be pointing the finger at himself. If he and the Department of Justice didn’t allow guns to walk they wouldn’t be in this mess and have blood on their hands. God forbid Matthew Boyle, Katie Pavlich, and Sharyl Attkisson do their jobs.
Oh MMfA, it’s not the media’s fault so many are calling for Holder to resign. Didn’t they see Perry pen his own op-ed for The Washington Times? How about the November 15th press conference the congressmen held to talk about Holder resigning? I also love how Mr. Gertz calls them “low level” Republicans. Mr. Issa is low level? How about Mr. Walsh? Mr. Mica? Mr. Allen West? Mrs. Bachmann?
According to their website, MMfA “put in place, for the first time, the means to systematically monitor a cross section of print, broadcast, cable, radio, and Internet media outlets for conservative misinformation — news or commentary that is not accurate, reliable, or credible and that forwards the conservative agenda — every day, in real time.”
Mr. Gertz could you please point out any misinformation in any of Matthew Boyle’s articles about Operation Fast & Furious? Could you also explain to me how reporting on Operation Fast & Furious moves forward the conservative agenda? Could you also explain why Mr. Boyle is wrong for calling and reporting congressmen demanding Mr. Holder to resign?
MMfA was launched in 2004 so that means they were around in 2007. Hm, I wonder if they reacted this way when the Old Media was going bonkers every time someone called for Alberto Gonzales to resign. Did they throw a fit when Larry King asked then Senator Obama about Mr. Gonzales? Or how about when The Huffington Post wrote about the 2008 Democrat presidential candidates calling out Mr. Gonzales. Mr. Gertz, you can find all that information in my latest piece at Big Journalism.
