The liberal group Media Matters has quietly transformed itself in preparation for what its founder, David Brock, described in an interview as an all-out campaign of “guerrilla warfare and sabotage”...
We have covered the War On Rush Limbaugh run by Media Matters and a bizarre group of dead-enders who spend their days tweeting advertisers and filling up pages on Facebook.
I’m not going to repeat the long, sordid history of the StopRush and FlushRush movements. But they were hoping to get Limbaugh...
As longtime readers know, Media Matters was the driving force behind the attempt to force Rush Limbaugh off the airwaves through secondary boycotts of advertisers.
Unlike more noble boycotts in American history, the Limbaugh boycott movement did not urge consumers to boycott Limbaugh’s show, it sought to undercut Limbaugh’s platform by scaring advertisers away from the...
Two big things have happened this week (so far).
First, yesterday the 200,000th comment was posted at Legal Insurrection:

I have covered the #StopRush and various affiliated boycott campaigns against Rush Limbaugh organized and run by Media Matters as extensively as anyone:

Will we make it that far?
this morning, Sequester — already the biggest lie of 2013.
Rush says it this way, For the First Time in My Life, I Am Ashamed of My Country:
When are we finally going to admit that we have a very serious problem with this generation of young men in America? We have failed them so dramatically that it is hard to put it...
Because you still care (?).
CALLER: I need some help here. I’ve tuned out since the election, absolutely tuned out… I’ve tuned out. I own my own business. I’m just gonna...
The last we heard of the StopRush movement back in June, it had desended into intrigue, #StopRush was infiltrated, audio recordings and other evidence released.
The one thing StopRush never did, was stop Rush.
But they were good at making threats after I exposed the cooordination with Media Matters:
