    And if those mentioned can make a profit, why can't Media Matters? Their staff appears to be paid quite well in fact.
    Yes, they only criticize conservative media.

    Perhaps they could turn a profit, but that's not how they're organized. If Breitbart et al want a tax break, perhaps they should reorganize as 501(c)(3)s?

    The media research council, that is run by Brent Bozell, is tax-exempt. Thanks for making our point, lol.


    Media Research Center Contact

    The Media Research Center is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit and education foundation

    Is their any left wing organization that does turn a profit? It seems they all have to be subsidized.

    Perhaps you're right though. Maybe all political criticism should be deductible, subsidized and given special tax exempt status. Or, to be fair, subsidize them in alternate years, depending on their point of view.

    Subsidized speech rather than free speech! The United States has really progressed through the continued actions of the progressives.

    "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone" (John 8:7)

    The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a politically conservative [1] 501(c)(3) nonprofit policy organization, consisting of both state legislators and members of the private sector, mostly representing corporations. ALEC's mission statement describes the organization's purpose as the advancement of free-market principles, limited government, federalism, and individual liberty. Among other activities, the group provides a venue for private individuals and corporations to assist politicians in developing what it considers model laws serving the economic and political aims of its members. [...]

    ALEC currently has more than 2,000 legislative members representing all 50 states, as well as more than 85 members of congress and 14 sitting or former governors who are considered "alumni". ALEC also claims approximately 300 corporate, foundation, and other private-sector members. A list of ALEC leaders in the states includes 73 Republican lawmakers and 7 Democrats. [...] On July 14, 2011, the Los Angeles Times announced that government watchdog Common Cause would issue a challenge to ALEC's nonprofit status, on the grounds that ALEC "spends most of its resources lobbying, in violation of the rules governing nonprofit organizations."[31]
