Media Matters' Planned War Against FOX

Make no mistake....this is a war against Conservatives!  They want to take down FOX because it is considered the Conservative news site.  What should our response be?  What progressive sites should we take a 'distinct' interest in???  They want to go into the trenches, I guess we can follow them there...your suggestions on an appropriate response would be greatly appreciated!

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 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. The shift reflects the centrality of the cable channel to the contemporary conservative movement, as well as the loathing it inspires among liberals — not least among the donors who fund Media Matters’ staff of about 90, who are arrayed in neat rows in a giant war room above Massachusetts Avenue.


“The strategy that we had had toward Fox was basically a strategy of containment,” said Brock, Media Matters’ chairman and founder and a former conservative journalist, adding that the group’s main aim had been to challenge the factual claims of the channel and to attempt to prevent them from reaching the mainstream media.

The new strategy, he said, is a “war on Fox.”

"I do believe the loyalty towards backstabber Boehner will stop this ouster thing. It didn't work last time, why would it work today? I do thing he should go. Also McCon-nel should go too."

"It has been a good idea to oust Boehner ever since he got into Congress.  The establishment is worried that it might actually get traction this time."
