Steve Peters Commentary - #2761- Media Matters - War Against Fox - Politico (2) GOP Foolishly Ignores Recall Battle in Wisconsin - Townhall

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” aimed at the Fox News Channel.....The group, launched as a more traditional media critic, has all but abandoned its monitoring of newspapers and other television networks and is narrowing its focus to Fox and a handful of conservative websites, which its leaders view as political organizations and the “nerve center” of the conservative movement.......We made a list of every single person who works for Fox and tried to figure out who might be disgruntled and why, and we went out to try to meet them,” he said. “Clearly, somebody in that organization is giving us primary source documents.Media Matters, he said, is also conducting “opposition research” on a dozen or so “mid- and senior-level execs and producers,” a campaign style move that he and Brock said would simply involve recording their public appearances and digging into public records associated with them.

For the liberals to succeed, they must first shut down the truthful speech on the right. Sunday, Obama refused to offer up anyone to discuss their position on Libya for FOX NEWS SUNDAY, but did provide people for all the major liberal stations with less viewership. Obama must be taking orders from George Soros and Media Matters. Here are their words, “The strategy that we had had toward Fox was basically a strategy of containment.” said Brock, Media Matters’ chairman and founder. The new strategy, he said, is a “war on Fox.”
Is Media Matters Breaking the Law in It's 'War' on Fox News - Washington Examiner - Media Matters, the George Soros-backed legion of liberal agit-prop shock troops based in the nation's capital, has declared war on Fox News, and in the process quite possibly stepped across the line of legality.  David Brock, MM's founder, was quoted Saturday by Politico promising that his organization is mounting "guerrila warfare and sabotage" against Fox News, which he said "is not a news organization......... There is nothing in the Politico article to suggest that Brock, who was paid just under $300,000 in 2009, according to the group's most recently available tax return, plans to ask the IRS to change his organization's tax status as a 501(C)(3) tax-exempt educational foundation.  Being a C3 puts MM in the non-profit, non-commercial sector, and it also bars the organzation from participating in partisan political activity. This new, more aggressive stance, however, appears to run directly counter to the government's requirements for maintaining a C3 tax status.  Read more......
GOP Foolishly Ignores Recall Battle in Wisconsin - Townhall - For weeks the national media focused on union protests in Wisconsin. Aging hippies trashed the state capital, union members were bused in from across the country in color-coded T-shirts, and Democratic state senators hid in an Illinois motel. Each little drama was an organized response to Republican Governor Scott Walker’s budget-repair bill that negated labor’s influence with state employees......Recall elections possibly can begin as early as June for 16 Wisconsin senators who are being targeted – eight Republicans for their votes in favor of the law that ends most collective bargaining powers for public-employee unions, and eight Democrats for running and hiding in Illinois in what turned out to be a failed attempt to stop the GOP from voting on the measure......If Republicans don't engage with real cash in Wisconsin, they could lose the state senate in advance of redistricting this summer, embolden unions, and scare hell out of Republicans in statehouses everywhere.  Walker may have won on policy – yet Republicans could face massive losses nationally if they don’t win those state recalls.  Just because the Democrats came back from Illinois doesn’t mean the left surrendered.  Read entire article....... SP: Just saying NO several times to liberals does not work, because they are too concerned with getting what they want, therefore they ignore one's pleas to stop. The Democrats and the Unions are willing to do anything to maintain their place at the public trough, against the will of the people, the State legislature, and the results of the last election. They intend to do this by attempting to remove a conservative State Supreme Court Justice, and by recalling several State Senators. The ultimate form of greed is defined by someone is willing to do anything to keep legally stealing from "their neighbors", after they've have made it clear that they want them to stop trespassing on their property and picking their pockets. It is tiring to fight back against their persistent efforts, but one must continue to say no until they get it, or they fall over dead from exhaustion.
