It’s always useful to have more confirmation of the gobsmackingly obvious. The Daily Caller provides a deeper glimpse into the Soros-backed Media Matters/Democrat propaganda machine.
Before we get to that, recall that I posted an e-mail last week showing how the Soros monkeys coordinated with Capitol Hill “allies” on Keystone XL.
I’ve also noted how a former Media Matters researcher spearheaded dirty tricks for Sen. Charles Schumer’s Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee several years back.
And I’ve covered former White House communications adviser Anita Dunn’s war on Fox News — Media Matters’ Public Enemy Number One — in-depth on this blog.
TheDC adds more pieces to the coordination puzzle:
A group with the ability to shape news coverage is of incalculable value to the politicians it supports, so it’s no surprise that Media Matters has been in regular contact with political operatives in the Obama administration. According to visitor logs, on June 16, 2010, Brock and then-Media Matters president Eric Burns traveled to the White House for a meeting with Valerie Jarrett, arguably the president’s closest adviser. Recently departed Obama communications director Anita Dunn returned to the White House for the meeting as well.
It’s not clear what the four spoke about — no one in the meeting returned repeated calls for comment — but the apparent coordination continued. “Anita Dunn became a regular presence at the office,” says someone who worked there. Then-president of Media Matters, Eric Burns, “lunched with her, met with her and chatted with her frequently on any number of matters.”
Media Matters also began a weekly strategy call with the White House, which continues, joined by the liberal Center for American Progress think tank. Jen Psaki, Obama’s deputy communications director, was a frequent participant before she left for the private sector in October 2011.
Every Tuesday evening, meanwhile, a representative from Media Matters attends the Common Purpose Project meeting at the Capitol Hilton on 16th Street in Washington, where dozens of progressive organizations formulate strategy, often with a representative from the Obama White House.
In the past several years, Media Matters has focused much of its considerable energy on the Fox News Channel. The network, declares one internal memo, “is the de facto leader of the GOP and it is long past time that it was treated as such by the media, elected officials, and the public.” At the end of September 2009, Burns made the case publicly in an interview on MSNBC.
Fox, he said, “is a political organization, and their aim is to destroy a progressive policy agenda.”
Less than a month later, in language that could have been copied directly from a Media Matters press release, White House communications director Anita Dunn leveled almost precisely the same charge, dismissing Fox as “more a wing of the Republican Party.”
From the Soros monkeys’ keyboards to Obama’s mouthpieces’ mouths…
Knowing how the messaging machine works is important. But I think it’s the policy coordination between Team Obama and Team Soros that deserves more scrutiny.
As I’ve noted before, several Soros-backed Center for American Progress operatives have traveled through the White House revolving door — subverting transparency, targeting conservative political dissenters, and crafting policies that undermine our economy and free speech.
