Media Matters for America: benevolent non-profit organization formed for the express purpose of transcribing Fox News Channel broadcasts for those who don’t have cable, or money-sucking quasi-religious cult?
Taking issue with talk radio host Glenn Beck’s use of oxygen, as well as his exercise of his so-called “freedom of speech,” Media Matters for America devoted its Clockwork Orange-like focus to counting the number of times that Beck has used the word “demon” or “devil.”
Yes, this is the kind of hard-hitting journalism that we’ve come to expect from Media Matters.
Under the ambiguous and loosely-defined mantle of “Research,” Media Mutters sprang to the defense of crackpot UFO cultist (and Nation of Islam leader) Louis Farrakhan, crying that Beck was unfair to criticize Farrahkhan’s comparisons of white people to devils, because Beck had invoked negative religious imagery himself at some indeterminate points in the past.
Allow your brain to chew on that nugget of thought for a moment. Calling Caucasians and Jews “devils” is condoned behavior, because a white guy suggested that one political side or the other stood in opposition to traditional, religiously-inspired conservative values.
Also, consider for a moment the fact that some pimple-nosed intern, locked in George Soros’ basement, actually took the time to compile and transcribe all of these clips from Glenn Beck’s TV and radio show.
Media Matters for America spends ten million dollars a year transcribing Fox News broadcasts… and hardly anything else.
When you think about it, they’re doing all of us a great public service. Missed an episode of Hannity or Special Report with Bret Baier? No sweat, just log on to Media Matters’ website and you can read what you missed. And many times, they’ve taped the episode, and provide it to the public, free of charge.
Now that Media Matters is delving into religion, does that make Eric Boehlert the new David Koresh? Should we start being concerned by George Soros’s sudden interest in Kool-Aid stock futures? And just what is it with those track suits that Boehlert is trying to pass off as “the next wave in Casual Friday attire,” anyway?
But seriously, folks—if you see people dressed in robes, trying to give you free books about how everything you know is untrue… don’t try to argue with them. Just avert your eyes and keep walking. They’re not Moonies or Hare Krishnas, they’re just Media Matters for America interns, trying to scrape together money for the George Soros Lotion Fund.
