Will Media Matters treat one of its own executives by the same standard it imposes on others?
Angelo Carusone is the Media Matters executive behind the effort to get Rush Limbaugh off the airwaves, as we documented in 2012:
- Media Matters astroturfed the Limbaugh secondary boycott
- Independent Rush boycott group coordinated with Media Matters
The attack on Limbaugh was not Carusone’s first targeting of a major conservative personality. Carusone, prior to joining Media Matters, was behind the Stop Beck effort.
As reported at The Daily Caller today, Carusone may have some problems with a prior blog he maintained in which he engaged in questionable conduct, Media Matters Executive Wrote Racist, Anti-Semitic, Anti-’Tranny’ Blog Posts:
A top executive at Media Matters for America and the principal activist in the “Stop Rush” campaign made racist and anti-Semitic comments and disparaged “trannies” on a dormant blog that he wrote just several years prior to his prominent liberal activism career.
Blog entries reviewed by The Daily Caller show that Angelo Carusone made derogatory remarks about ethnic groups and used language to insult “trannies” and ugly “gays” that would be considered hate speech by his own organization.
The Daily Caller has the details on the posts.
I reached out to Carusone and Media Matters via Twitter, and Media Matters via email, seeking comment, but so far no responses.
Will Media Matter treat Carusone the same way it would had the blog entries been written by a conservative media figure or activists?
