    Re: Media Matters to launch campaign of "guerrilla warfare and sabotage" against Fox

    Attack on the free press? I dont consider Fox News part of the free press. To be a free press, the for one should not have a political agenda that they constantly push openly while claiming the opposite. Fox News is the mouth piece of the GOP pure and simple.

    Attack on freedom of speech? Well sadly in the US "freedom of speech" also means freedom of responsibility for spreading lies and miss-information. It use to be that media out-lets that were considered serious, were called on their lax reporting. Now days, Fox News gets away with pretty much anything.. may it be the anti-education attacks their anchors make or the out right crazy conspiracy crap they pull. Nancy Grace not believing Fox News own weather man that the radiation coming from Japan was minimal on the west coast of the US.... really takes the top spot for me at the moment.. what an idiot of a woman. But sadly it is not the only example of their anchors with college degrees playing people with no high school education.

    Sorry but Fox News dug this hole they are in, and the fact that Media Matters has the balls to call them (and other media outlets too) on their miss-information, lies and propaganda should be applauded rather than scowled on. Someone has to keep the media in check, especially the serial liars and propaganda stations.

    You are late, Mellie already changed the premise. Try keeping up.

    It is now possible that Media Matters is breaking the law. They are listed with the IRS as a 501 (c) (3) organization. As such, they are tax exempt as long as they don't participate in any partisan political activities. As soon as Brock pronounced that FoxNews was an arm of the Republican Party and they were going to do everything possible to close them down, MM became a political entity.

    MM might have cooked their own goose. Wouldn't that be some delicious irony ??

    My personal favorite: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-me...jail-time-not/

    There are plenty of compilations of almost every person on Fox talking about jail time for not following the law out there.

    Yes it is. They want to shut down FOX because they don't like what they say. Liberals are turning into Hugo Chavez.

    The United States Constitution can be read here, I suggest you read it ASAP because it seems that you desperately need to.

    They are bringing in more troops and and narrowing their focus. Soros is pissed at how little the progress has been so far. FOX just keeps getting stronger.

    Criticizing isn't the same as shutting down. How do you fall for this same crap every day, so consistently?

    o_O Huh? Why is it that every liberal organization is somehow linked to George Soros?

    Mind getting out a chalkboard and explaing that to me?
