Now, how in the hell did this happen?
Via The Blaze.
In 2010, the Girl Scouts of the USA published a book called “MEdia.” The publication, designed for girls in grades six through eight, is a guide that apparently offers insight into how young people should process and understand the media messages surrounding them.
Considering the pervasive nature of popular media, this seems like a viable tool. However, there’s a problem — the book refers young readers to Media Matters for America as one of the primary sources for debunking lies and deceit.
On the surface, “MEdia” seems like it’s an excellent resource (and in some ways maybe it is) that encourages self-reflection and skepticism — two very understandable and useful tenets. But on page 25 of the book, a very curious recommendation is given.
Under the headline, “Consider the Source,” text encourages girls to go to the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America web site to clear up any media misinformation they might encounter. It reads:
“The Internet is a breeding ground for “urban legends,” which are false stories told as if true. Next time you receive a txt or e-mail about something that seems unbelievable, confirm it before you spread it.
The fact-checking site snopes.com investigates everything from urban legends to “news” articles and posts its findings. Media Matters for America (http://mediamatters.org/) gets the word out about media misinformation.”
……This story was originally brought to us by Christy Volanski, a concerned parent and a former Girl Scouts leader. Her daughter, Sydney, a 15-year-old who served as a Girl Scout for eight years, left the organization in 2010 after she found that it embraces some controversial stances. Now, Sydney co-edits “Speak Now: Girl Scouts Website,” which provides plenty of other examples of what some may see as liberal bias.
Consider the source: A radical leftwing propaganda screed giving advice to youngsters about “fact checking”. Right.
Parents need to scrutinize everything their children learn in school and bring home as reading material.
Media Matters founder David Brock, the faux conservative fop-turned liberal hack, declared a snortworthy war on Fox News in March of 2011. Fox News programs consistently garner big ratings over the leftwing media by a mile, which drives assholes like Brock to insane distraction. Good luck with that war, Brock.
Leftwing indoctrination of American children in schools has involved creepy Obama love-fests and incorporation of leftwing propaganda into curriculums, books, and lesson plans. And now they’ve added Girl Scouts to their agenda.
