Emails show Justice Department regularly enlists Media Matters to spin scandals like Fast and Furious
Isn’t Media Matters supposed to be a tax exempt corporation that isn’t allow to have any connection to goverment or show any bias? They’ve been getting away with it for years, and the spineless Republicans wouldn’t investigate them. Now, according to the Daily Caller, George Soros progaganda outfit Media Matters regularly enlists the Eric Holder Department of (in)Justice to spin scandals to the media like Fast and Furious, the New Black Panther case, etc.
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 (FOIA) request. (RELATED: Complete coverage of Media Matters for America)
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.
