Non-Profit Media Matters Plans Jihad Against Fox News

This is Day 2 of the Daily Caller's expose' of Media Matters for America, the leftist organization that works hand-in-hand with the Obama administration and the Democrat party:
A little after 1 p.m. on Sept. 29, 2009, Karl Frisch emailed a memo to his bosses, Media Matters for America founder David Brock and president Eric Burns. In the first few lines, Frisch explained why Media Matters should launch a “Fox Fund” whose mission would be to attack the Fox News Channel.

“Simply put,” Frisch wrote, “the progressive movement is in need of an enemy. George W. Bush is gone. We really don’t have John McCain to kick around any more. Filling the lack of leadership on the right, Fox News has emerged as the central enemy and antagonist of the Obama administration, our Congressional majorities and the progressive movement as a whole.”

“We must take Fox News head-on in a well funded, presidential-style campaign to discredit and embarrass the network, making it illegitimate in the eyes of news consumers.”

What Frisch proceeded to suggest, however, went well beyond what legitimate presidential campaigns attempt. “We should hire private investigators to look into the personal lives of Fox News anchors, hosts, reporters, prominent contributors, senior network and corporate staff,” he wrote.

No mention of Rush Limbaugh on the enemies list? I would've thought for sure he would be at the top of that list as he
1. has a huuuuge audience
2. is on for 3 hours every weekday
3. clarifies what is important to know at that particular moment, thereby making it hard for liberals to have the initiative
