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.Continue Reading
“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.”
Why do we have to Target anyone at all? Why stoop to their level? I think Fox News it's Hosts and the great people that contribute to Fox News can handle what ever Media Matters throws at them, don't you? The Truth and the Facts always seem to prevail, especially lately. I believe the American people are waking up to the liberal cowardess, sneakyness and flat out mistruths that folks like Media Matters tries to present as news.
They don't deserve the extra press and notice they would get by some how retaliating against them!
Excelllent summation of the problem.
always follow the money.
Very well said!
BTW, can anyone tell me why Glenn Beck is really leaving FOX?
@Eagle, I agree with alot of what you stated, but when the truth is consistently hidden, SCREAMED at, and the speaker is name called with hideous names it becomes a frightful problem. We in the Conservative tent have not done as much preparation and practice as those in the Liberal/Progressive left. We do not have access to those young "mush minds" that they are their cronies (NEA) have to impart a particular belief structure. We have to "maintain" like the TEA PARTY has been doing for the last two years... FOCUS on what we need - NEW Politicians who understand the Conservative mindset and are willing to view the Constitution as a document that it is mean't to be - a LIMITING document for Gov't.
We all have to be able to share websites and "bits" of information to those who don't get it and encourage them to check it out and see for themselves, much like Glenn does - only I can believe what I choose so I better do the homework so I am confortable with my decision...
TO ALL CONSERVATIVES - NEVER GIVE UP - NEVER GIVE IN - Check out the tenants of the Masons if you want to know more about who the Founders really were and what motivated them...
Can you imagine how much farther along the progressives would have been if not for Beck? Would we have been able to ferret out the truth of all this insanity? Thank God, Beck started when he did, and gave us ample time to check out the truth for ourselves.
Now we have no excuse. At least we have had time to prepare. God bless.
