    George Soros donates $1 million to Media Matters to fight Fox News and Glenn Beck

    NYT: Soros Donates $1 Million to Media Matters for Fight Against FOX and Glenn Beck | The Blaze

    And a petition from the Tides Foundation can be found at MM...

    http://mediamatters.org/press/releases/201010200005

    Once again, they're going after Beck's advertisers, but they've now expanded it to the entire Fox News network claiming that Beck's "violent rhetoric" (no source on that) could lead to another Oklahoma City bombing.

    MM also launched http://mediamatters.org/action/dropfox/ trying to intimidate Fox's sponsors into dropping their sponsorship.

    Uh huh....I think we all know why Soros and Media Matters want Beck to shut up....

    Now hold ON -- there are several here who INSIST that Media Matters isn't anti-Fox News, and that they're just "serious journalists" doing their jobs fairly. I just don't see how any of this could be possible.

    Don't know how unbuiased media matters is, but taking money doesn't make them inaccurate. Money used to report accurately on Fox errors isn't a bad thing, espeically concerning the political entertainers, who don't really do news. It's OK to do this on all political entertainers regardless of network.

    Is it limited to either or? Or is it possible both are lying?

    Good for you. Had nothing to do with what I said.

    I would be happier if neither outfit existed. I dislike biased media.

    I don't actually mind bias. We should be able to handle that. I dislike inaccuracy. And I'm concerned about viewers who seek and demand that news appease their world view. News shold not be affirmation.

    Wait, I thought we can't blame other people for the acts of people? How can we blame Rush for OKC or blame Beck for possiibly causing another due to his "rhetoric", but we're told you can't say that islamic "rhetoric" helped cause the 9/11 attacks?

    Perhaps because you swallow the Kool-Aid that FauxNews dishes out. I would have to say that you could add about 3 zeros to the amount and you might at that point have enough money to correct the lies and propoganda that Faux puts out on the airwaves.
