If you only read Media Matters and Think Progress, you’d think Rush Limbaugh was on the verge of losing his radio empire because 50 or more advertisers “dropped” him.

While Limbaugh has lost some important advertisers, it appears that many of the advertisers dropping him never advertised in the first place, and...

There’s something Bill Maher understands. What goes around comes around.

Media Matters and Think Progress can organize a campaign to attack Rush Limbaugh’s advertisers as a means — they hope — of forcing him off the air.  But what goes around comes around.

And it will.

So Maher has come to Limbaugh’s defense not on...

Liberal groups have seized on a strategy I didn’t think would be effective, but has had some success, to go after advertisers of prominent conservative media personalities.

Media Matters explicitly seeks to bring down Fox News and investigate its executives, and Fox News advertisers have been targeted by groups like Color of...

The latest installment of The Daily Caller’s exposé on Media Matters concerns an e-mail regarding an action plan against Fox News which included hiring private investigators to go after Fox News executives, lawfare, and other acts of disruption:

A little after 1 p.m. on Sept. 29, 2009, Karl Frisch emailed a memo to...

Media Matters for America really is Media Matters for Obama, but you already knew that from the frequent posts here about it.

Among other things, MMFA employs the most expensive proofreader in America, and the most aggressive and unapologetic purveyor of the “Israel-Firster” smear.

It’s quite a group.

I posted previously about accusations that groups such as Media Matters and the Center for American Progress (which runs the Think Progress blog) routinely used questionable terminology (such as “Israel-Firsters”) and were pushing an anti-Israel agenda under the guise of battling the “Israel Lobby.”

The story was brought to the forefront by ...

Now that more photos and information are coming out from multiple sources about Anthony Weiner’s online exchange of photos and salacious talk, it is worth revisiting how the left blogosphere relentlessly pushed the meme that this was an Andrew Breitbart hoax:

Media Matters, as part of its new “get Fox News” agenda, is spinning a tape of Bill Sammons of Fox News made in 2009 as reflecting dishonesty as to “mischievous speculation” in 2008 as to whether Obama had socialist tendencies.  Needless to say, the left-blogsphere has reacted with glee.
