From the Daily Caller.
Internal Department of Justice emails obtained by The Daily Caller show Attorney General Eric Holder’s communications staff has collaborated with the left-wing advocacy group Media Matters for America in an attempt to quell news stories about scandals plaguing Holder and America’s top law enforcement agency.
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 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.”
Before Holden posted his article at 7:52 p.m., Schmaler sent him several emails with information helping him attack both former DOJ oficials.
“Here’s one Wolf letter,” read the subject of one email Schmaler sent Holden that contained no text. The email was likely a reference to Virginia Republican Rep. Frank Wolf, a member of Congress who led the Republican charge on the New Black Panther Party scandal involving alleged voter intimidation at a November 2008 polling place in Philadelphia.
In response, Holden told Schmaler that “The response to interog 38 is particularly helpful. Thanks!”
Interrogatory 38 was a reference to a question from Congress that the Justice Department answered, concerning the role of several senior officials in discussing litigation related to that voter intimidation case.
A follow-up email shows Schmaler sending Holden more information.
The incestuous relationship is used in an attempt to squelch everything from the New Black Panther voter intimidation and Obama’s Fast and Furious gunrunning,to attacking Tea Party patriots, George Zimmerman, Townhall Magazine, Fox News, and National Review.
Obama’s flying monkeys at Media Matters is just one example.
From a previous post:
“Media Matters is just one Obama shill. Remember JournoList? It was a leftwing journalists’ email club who conspired to promote a pro-Obama agenda. After they and their group were discovered, they quickly disbanded. The Daily Caller obtained some of their emails, bringing to light the extent to which they would go to smear anyone who dared to criticize Obamesssiah. They also sought to squelch the controversy surrounding Obama’s good buddy Jeremiah Wright, and of course, shut down the Fox News organization.
Another leftwing media echo chamber, Progressive Media, a project of the CAP Action Fund and the Media Matters Action Fund, has conducted conference calls with the White House over political strategy. The National Endowment for the Arts also serves as a propaganda wing.
Obama himself created a Ministry of Truth to counter “unfavorable stories”. Not that the leftwing MSM needed much prompting. They eagerly sucked his dick through the whole campaign and January 2009 coronation.
Media Matters is a wealthy government-subsidized political organization;a direct violation of non-profit, tax exempt laws. The MSM will never touch this but the blogosphere is all over Media Matters like stink on shit.
One blatant Obama zombie moment came during an MSNBC ‘Morning Joe’ broadcast, which featured a discussion of the White House targeting Fox News. An email arrived from the White House on the air to ‘correct them’ about an exchange between former WH spokesperson Robert Gibbs and Jake Tapper. Mika Brezinsky actually made the ‘correction’.”
The main stream media is state-owned, with the media’s complicity.
