Media Matters stealing ideas from people it hates now


Media Matters (a.k.a. the George Soros Steno Pool) boasts a multi-million dollar budget and over 60 staffers — and this is the best they can do?
Just a few months ago, Media Matters delighted in mocking Fox News star Glenn Beck’s latest novelty: a red phone set up to take calls from the White House, should [...]

Media Matters not Even Trying this Week


Maybe they’re still keeping Euro-type holiday hours at the George Soros Steno Pool, a.k.a. Media Matters.
Let’s see now:
So far this week they’ve been concerned about the Fox & Friends weatherman’s corny global warming joke — the sort you’ve heard countless times on your local radio drive time show.
Fox & Friends’ other mortal sin? The gang [...]

Beck Is The Media Matters “Misinformer” of the Year


In 2009 Glenn Beck became a thorn in the side of the Obama administration and the American left’s Public Enemy Number One, surpassing fellow conservatives Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, and Bill O’Reilly in terms of pure hateful bile generated.
The hysteria infecting among left-bloggers was roughly proportionate to Beck’s effectiveness in [...]

Media Matters wants Brit Hume to ‘apologize’ for… not sure, actually…


The day Fox News finally got picked up by a Canadian cable provider, I jumped into the car after work and told my husband to drive home fast.
I couldn’t wait to experience an alternative to Bush-hating, anti-Israel (and up here, anti-American) tv news.
I thumbed “181″ into the remote — and there was Brit Hume. In [...]

Before Media Matters, there was Group Research, Inc. (part two)


It feels strange writing about the left’s countless vain attempts to silence conservative talk radio, on the morning after Rush Limbaugh was hospitalized with chest pains.
As I write this, his condition has been upgraded from “serious” to “stable”, and a statement at RushLimbaugh.com says the veteran host is “resting comfortably” and “appreciates your prayers [...]

Mark Steyn: too much man for Media Matters girly-boys?


When we last left the “Zacharies” — the 3-man (!) team assigned by Media Matters to monitor Rush Limbaugh and his co-hosts — they were so overcome with the vapors that they abandoned their post during Hour 2 of Mark Steyn’s 3-hour guest hosting stint.
Steyn is back at the Golden EIB Microphone this week, sitting [...]

Media Matters ‘Just Barely’ Accepts Smackdown from its Very Own Readers


Eric “The Excitable” Boehlert is one of my “favorite” guys (and they are almost all guys) at Media Matters.
His lousy reading comprehension skills and blindly ideological bent combine with a preternatural enthusiasm, to produce posts that are inevitably poorly reasoned, poorly written, and sometimes just plain wrong.
Eric Boehlert is the Ed Wood of the George [...]

Media Matters left speechless by Mark Steyn


I teased Mark Steyn via email yesterday morning, because his guest stint on Hannity wasn’t generating any faux outrage or not-very-withering sarcasm over at the George Soros Steno Pool, a.k.a. Media Matters.
Steyn’s had a busy week, guest-hosting for Hannity on television and then today, sitting in for Rush Limbaugh. For whatever reason, that particular gig [...]

At Media Matters, ‘Firing Squad’ Wears the Blindfolds


The more I think about Media Matters taking credit for the “firing” of Lou Dobbs, the stupider the situation gets.
Even if Media Matters is responsible for Dobbs’ departure (which I doubt), how pathetic and ineffectual does that make them look?
The George Soros Steno Pool are always the first to criticize Glenn Beck for supposedly trying [...]

Retirement age broadcaster retires; Media Matters takes credit


Eric Burns, the president of Media Matters, tells the New York Observer that the George Soros Steno Pool has “had some incredible successes this year.”
Acknowledging that “it’s been a difficult fund-raising environment,” Burns tells the Observer that Media Matters “raised roughly $10 million in 2009. The haul was less than the organization’s peak numbers in [...]
