Press Man: Foxed Out
Media matters, the popular left-wing “media watchdog” funded in part by George Soros and overseen by a former conservative journalist named David Brock, has announced that it is launching an explicit campaign of “guerrilla warfare and sabotage” against the Fox News Channel. And when it did so, the saga of left-wing media criticism in the U.S. entered a new and perhaps fateful phase.
Earlier this year a website called Mediaite issued a death notice for Media Matters. Brock’s group had just issued a “report” about the immorality of Fox News, as it has done with Swiss-like efficiency and regularity since its founding in 2004. But the reaction this time was different, according to Mediaite.
