FOX News continues to crush the competitors. But, not everyone is happy about this. (DC Indymedia)
Americans expect the media to tell the truth.
That’s why the Media Matters episodes this week are so infuriating.
Media Matters first slandered Bill O’Reilly for his discussion with black liberal Juan Williams.
Then the dishonest Leftist group blasted Rush Limbaugh for his comments against the rash of antiwar phony soldiers propped up by the liberal media and liberal senatorial candidates.

News Busters wrote more on this horrible Leftist organization, Media Matters:
Media Matters’ links to Hillary are at once intimate and multitudinous, and the organization’s devotion to her is nothing short of profound. In 1996 (eight years before Media Matters’ creation), the then-conservative David Brock was commissioned (with a $1 million advance) by the Simon & Schuster subsidiary Free Press to write a hard-hitting expose of Hillary. But the book, completed in 1997, turned out to be nothing more than a tepid, distinctly sympathetic account of the former First Lady’s life. That same year (1997), Brock publicly announced his political epiphany, unequivocally recanting his previous negative writings about the Clintons and embracing the liberal/Left cause. During this period, Brock developed a close relationship with Neel Lattimore, Senator Clinton’s openly gay press secretary and close confidante. Brock would eventually hire Lattimore as a director of “special projects” for Media Matters.
Brock’s affinity for Mrs. Clinton grew over time, and vice versa. According to Glenn Thrush of Newsday, Hillary “advised Brock on creating” Media Matters in 2004, “encouraging the creation of a liberal equivalent of the Media Research Center, a conservative group that has aggravated Democrats for decades.” Thrush reports that Hillary still “chats with [Brock] occasionally and thinks he provides a valuable service . . .” “For her part,” Thrush adds, “Clinton’s extended family of contributors, consultants and friends has played a pivotal role in helping Media Matters grow from a $3.5 million start-up in 2004 to its current $8.5 million budget.”
Media Matters and Hillary Clinton are further linked by their respective relationships with three of the most influential leftist operatives in the world—George Soros, Morton Halperin, and John Podesta. All three of these men are intimately involved with a vital think tank called the Center for American Progress (CAP)—which, according to Cybercast News Service’s research, “was instrumental in getting Brock’s media group off the ground”; which helped launch Media Matters on May 3, 2004; and which maintains a tight bond with Brock’s organization to this day…

CAP is heavily funded by the aforementioned billionaire financier George Soros, and in turn works closely with Media Matters to remove potential roadblocks (like Don Imus) from Hillary Clinton’s path to the White House. According to Bill O’Reilly, some of the money Soros gives to CAP eventually finds its way into the coffers of Media Matters, though Media Matters disputes this.
Yet, the liberal media this week was more than willing to spread the lies by the Leftists at Media Matters.
After O’Reilly was attacked this week by the Soros-linked Media Matters and mainstream media outlets including CNN, CBS, Chicago Sun-Times, etc. he had this to say about the the corrupt American media:
Failure leads to desperation. “The Factor” has been number one for six consecutive years and defeats our cable news competition combined. The other cable news outlets are ratings disasters.
Last night, “The Factor” had six times as many viewers as CNN at 8;00 p.m. But that is no excuse for being dishonest.
Truly Americans expect more and that explains the rise of FOX News despite the constant attacks by the Leftist propagandists.
