    Sorry, I don't trust biased sources purely based on whether they agree with me like you do. I don't watch MSNBC (I switched cable companies a year ago and for the life of me I couldn't tell you the number for MSNBC), and likewise, I don't go about reading the B.S. from the Daily Caller.

    Its a website that has repeatedly lied in the past to favor a political agenda.

    To save you the trouble, I have read that article from the daily caller, it's a bunch of accusations from anonymous sources and even if it were all true, would not go against media matters tax exempt status. You have been duped.

    Then if they only check conservative media they are clearly biased and should not receive tax exempt status.

    The should also change their name to Democratic Party Media Matters.

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 obviously refused to read the article and this willful ignorance is rapidly leading toward America's downfall.

    Whenever I have said the same of liberal left sites, I have been told in here to document the lies specifically. But yet, you think you get to just type this and get away with it? No, document what you think they are lying about.

    To save you the trouble, I have read that article from the daily caller, it's a bunch of accusations from anonymous sources and even if it were all true, would not go against media matters tax exempt status.

    What the....? This is the MSM main method of writing stories these days. Carlson claims the sources are inside MMFA so it makes sense that they would want their names withheld. But, I find it ironic that those on the left who consistantly took the word of shill outlets like WaPo, NYTimes, ACJ, MSNBC, Politico, HuffPost...etc. have the absolute nerve to come back and say 'well, you can't believe an article that gores my ox if it uses anonymus sourcing, that only is credible when talking of hit pieces against your guys'....It is laughable.

    You have been duped.
    Liberalism 101 is to call your opponent stupid enough to be 'duped'....It accomplishes nothing more than to make your argument look weak. But I suppose in the bitterly divided partisan soup that is today's politics thanks to Obama, it is possible that we all see things we want to see from time to time, but this isn't a new claim of hackery by MMFA. The troubling thing you should be asking yourself is their close ties to major news outlets, and the white house at the highest levels. Propaganda is the bastion of the despot, and knows no ideology.

    Adam, you're a smart guy...In all seriousness, do you think that MM tells the unvarnished truth in their reports?

    I think they clearly have a partisan agenda, just like Heritage and all the other partisan nonprofits. I think they serve a role in fact checking hyperpartisan right wing media sources. More often than not, the truth lies somewhere in the middle.
