Well, this will make you feel good.
The kids over at Media Matters are gearing up to lose their 501(c)(3) status I’m guessing as they go headlong into a new mission to destroy Fox News and Newscorp.
Along the way, the Politico tells us this:
The group, launched as a more traditional media critic, has all but abandoned its monitoring of newspapers and other television networks and is narrowing its focus to Fox and a handful of conservative websites, which its leaders view as political organizations and the “nerve center” of the conservative movement.
Well thanks for recognizing our position in life, Media Matters.
They are rather obsessive about those things that appear here at RedState and in the twitter feeds of various RedState contributors. They even listen to my radio show!
Truth be told, fundraising seems to be the whole purpose behind this Politico article. Couple it with the fawning piece about the Media Matters guerilla pundit training program where they are trying to get people on Fox News and you have the makings of a “we need money” PR blitz with the help of Media Matters friends in the press.
It is rather funny. In the Politico, the story is about Media Matters making it their new mission to destroy Fox. In the Washington Post, the story is about how Media Matters is training lefty pundits to get on Fox.
But the key takeaway is that we now know that by being a RedState user you are seen as part of the nerve center of the vast right wing conspiracy.
I think we should fundraise off this news!
