…between DOJ and Media Matters.
How anyone can trust Media Matters as a news source is beyond me. This proves that they are merely a propaganda arm of the DNC and this Administration.
The Media is bound and determined to make this Administration look good and will do everything in their power to ensure Obama is reelected, even if they must lie and obfuscate to do so.
This isn’t America anymore. We have Pravda for a news source with the Ministry of Propaganda running the show.
Internal Department of Justice emails obtained by The Daily Caller show Attorney General Eric Holder’s communications staff has collaborated with the left-wing advocacy group Media Matters for America in an attempt to quell news stories about scandals plaguing Holder and America’s top law enforcement agency.
Dozens of pages of emails between DOJ Office of Public Affairs Director Tracy Schmaler and Media Matters staffers show Schmaler, Holder’s top press defender, working with Media Matters to attack reporters covering DOJ scandals. TheDC obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act request. (RELATED: TheDC’s complete coverage of Media Matters)
Emails sent in September and November 2010 show Schmaler working with Media Matters staffer Jeremy Holden on attacking news coverage of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation scandal.
This is related to the massive media con job that has been going on since 2008 non-stop.
Just for a quick addendum to Allahpundit’s earlier post on the Obama ‘I believe in redistribution’ audio that was making the rounds today: As AP already pointed out, it’s never a bad idea to remind voters of how President Obama’s mind works, but this isn’t brand new information. BuzzFeed just followed up with a whole rap sheet of some of Obama’s Greatest Progressive Hits, but as they concur, it’s not like his roots in hardcore liberalism are a secret.
Granted, time and political ambition can help to (publicly and pragmatically) tone down anybody’s views, but for me, all of this is just more infuriating evidence that further underscores the degree to which too many members of the media were simply falling over themselves to protect their hero from this type of vetting: They did it in 2008, and they’re doing it again now — not that they ever stopped, but we’re back to the fever-pitch level of the election cycle.
Overwhelmingly, the media establishment is all too happy to blithely gloss over any of the inconvenient bits of President Obama’s disquietingly leftist history and instead feed us all narratives about how Mitt Romney — yes, the “vanilla,” Republican governor of Massachusetts — is the “radical” right-wing “extremist,” if you can believe it.
