Who is Media Matters

We do not think there is a more un-American outfit than Media Matters who sits in a room distorting the words of people from one side of the political spectrum, feeding those distortions to supposed News organizations and the Senate and having them try to silence the Americans who are expressing their freedoms of speech. We do not care what politics Left or Right it is not the American way.

Media Matters for America (MMFA), “a new Web-based, not-for-profit progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media,”[1] was founded by David Brock in mid-April 2004.

The site “was devised as part of a larger media apparatus being built by liberals to combat what they say is the overwhelming influence of conservative commentators like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly.” The “project was developed with help from the newly formed Center for American Progress, the policy group headed by John D. Podesta,” Bill Clinton‘s former chief of staff. “Brock said he hoped it could help provide fodder for fledgling liberal radio talk shows being started across the country, including those of the comedians Al Franken and Janeane Garofalo.” [4]

“Mr. Brock, who has also spoken with Senator Clinton, Senator Tom Daschle of South Dakota and former Vice President Al Gore about his project, said he was ready to face skepticism. ‘I think all ideological converts face a reality on that question,’ he said. But, he added, ‘I’ve found people very open to the idea that people can change.'”

Funded with “more than $2 million in donations from wealthy liberals.” “Among Mr. Brock’s donors is Leo Hindery, Jr., the former cable magnate; Susie Tompkins Buell, who is co-founder of the fashion company Esprit and is close to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, and Ms. Buell’s husband Mark; and James C. Hormel, a San Francisco philanthropist whose appointment as ambassador to Luxembourg was delayed for a year and a half in the late 1990’s by conservative lawmakers protesting what they called his promotion of a ‘gay lifestyle.’ [5]

Media Matters for America is funded in part by the Democracy Alliance.
