Some of the biggest hypocrites the world has ever known are those who spend their days promoting liberal/lefty agendas while devoting their nights to sheltering themselves from the effects their own ideologies (::cough:: George Soros ::cough::).

Here’s example #4,532 of that kind of approach, by way of HuffPo:

The apparent decision by executives at Media Matters for America to oppose the unionization of their staff has left employees at the progressive media watchdog feeling stunned and betrayed, according to a statement from pro-union workers.

Media Matters management recently declined to recognize the union through the “card check” process, instead exercising its right to force a union election under National Labor Relations Board oversight. If an employer wants to keep a workplace union-free, the latter route can give it time to delay the proceedings, bring in union-busting consultants and pressure workers to vote down the union.

In the case of Media Matters, it also opens up the site’s management to charges of hypocrisy.

In other words, Media Matters management doesn’t want Media Matters dragged down by the kind of thing Media Matters exists to push on every other business.

This sums up my reaction:

Update:

A “paycheck” vs. “workers unite” internal struggle among the MM rank & file could be ignited if MM management orders employees to write about how the above story is completely untrue.
