Media Matters Fully Integrated into Holder’s DOJ

How bad is the politicization of the Justice Department under Obama and Holder? So bad that it’s coordinating with Media Matters.

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.

Nothing worrisome to see here. Just the DOJ working together with its political allies [2] in the new Obama Way of doing business where the left seeps through from government to think tanks and coordinates across its private and public sector outlets, treating them all as arms of the same giant ugly progressive octopus.

There is no difference between DOJ staffers and Media Matters staffers. They all have the same job and the same goal, just different powers. And that’s a reminder of why the left is so toxic and so dangerous.
