    You just linked to them fact checking conservative media, lol. You have no idea what you're talking about. Fact checking, or saying who you think is right does not equal campaigning.

    Those are partisan political positions and are a violation of the IRS code that posted above.

    I hope you are wearing your back-brace. You're going to move the goal post and brother, it's heavy. Be sure and lift with your legs.
    They are just presenting what they consider to be the facts. Writing an article with an opinion is not "influencing legislation". If it were, the heritage foundation would be in trouble too...

    Here they are bashing Obama's budget... according to you, a highly illegal act for them...

    How many times do they fact check Conservative media, when the fact checking goes against the Liberal agenda? If you answer, "never", then you've proven me correct.

    How many times has Media Matters corrected information they believe inaccurate when it was a Republican politician in the crosshairs?

    I agree. Neither The Heritage Foundation, nor Media Matters are, "charities", and therefore shouldn't qualify for any kind of tax exemption.

    That has nothing to do with campaigning for a candidate or trying to influence legislation.

    Once again, that has nothing to do with campaigning for a candidate or trying to influence legislation. Having a political bias does not equal "campaigning".

    Alright, fine with me, but as of right now, according to the law, they do.

    Care to try again?

    Having a political lean is not the same as campaigning.

    What they have done is collude with the WH, and MSNBC to shape opinion of the easily duped. That could very well be a violation.

    And?

    George Bush gave a speech for the Heritage Foundation during his presidency. I didn't see any of you squawking back then. If ya'll want to change the status of all of these non-profit companies, I'd be fine with it, but you all look silly by pretending that what MediaMatters does is illegal or different from the norm.

    You can't begin to understand the hilarity of you calling other people "easily duped" and then sourcing the Daily Caller.

    Remember when the Heritage Foundation worked hand-in-hand with Republicans to draft an alternative to Hillarycare ... that went on to become Obamacare?

    No, no, no....Giving a speech, and having weekly meetings, writing script, and colluding on behalf of the WH are two totally different things.

    Something wrong with the Daily Caller? Or is it that you just don't like it because it isn't a liberal hack outlet like MSNBC?

    Proof? endorsing, and working on are two different things.
