Media Matters continues to deflect from accusations of antisemitism and extreme bias by trumping up nontroversies on other conservatives. In addition to watching Fox, scouring Andrew Breitbart’s Twitter feed, and recording Erick Erickson and Dana Loesch’s shows, Media Matters for America is also facing questions as to how their organization can actively politick, which is against their own mission statement. Their latest lie? “Dana Loesch compared Al Gore to Leni Riefenstahl.”
Actually, Loesch said that Gore’s film “Inconvenient Truth” was like Riefenstahl’s films, a comparison she has made before on her show, and not just with Gore, also with the films of Michael Moore. They don’t want you to know that, of course. Just as they tried to do with Loesch the week prior, and are trying to do with Erickson right now, MMFA loves to take a couple of minutes from an hours-long show and pretend something was implied when it clearly, to anyone with more than a single brain cell, wasn’t.
