Media Matters Uses Tax Exempt Status to Attack Opposition to Government Scandals

It’s no surprise to hear how the Department of Justice attempted to hush the New Black Panther Voter Intimidation story by attacking those reporting on it. It’s the Venezuelan-way in the making. The Daily Caller filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) regarding communications in some areas, including any mention of the Daily Caller.  When the docs were finally released, they found that Holder’s Public Affairs person, Tracy Schmaler, regularly communicates with Media Matters (MM), including which stories MM goes after.

Media Matters is another government tool with a tax exempt status. Using that status on behalf of Obama is a violation of that status. This isn’t the first time their tax exemption has been in the news. We could ask why Congress hasn’t taken a step toward jerking the status, but it’s a waste of a good word processor.

There is no Conservative issue MM will give a fair break to and they clearly use their status to win the world for Barack Obama. The lawlessness is daunting and disheartening.

Dozens of pages of emails between DOJ Office of Public Affairs Director Tracy Schmaler and Media Matters staffers show Schmaler, Holder’s top press defender, working with Media Matters to attack reporters covering DOJ scandals. TheDC obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Emails sent in September and November 2010 show Schmaler working with Media Matters staffer Jeremy Holden on attacking news coverage of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation scandal.

Holden attacked former DOJ Civil Rights Division attorneys J. Christian Adams and Hans von Spakovsky on Sept. 20, 2010 for what he called an attempt “to reignite the phony New Black Panther Party scandal.”

Please read the whole story at Daily Caller. We must understand how this administration uses their power and prestige to put our pitiful media in their bunker. The behind-the-scenes payoffs must be huge.
