Servility Matters! -- President Obama's unofficial campaign propaganda outlet is moving into high-gear for the election season, reports TheDC's Vince Coglianese:When they're not defending Obama they're trying to get Rush Limbaugh off the air. How'd you like to spend all your time doing that? Must be depressing.
"President Barack Obama has received a steady drumbeat of support from Media Matters for America as he shifts into campaigner-in-chief mode. A content analysis by The Daily Caller shows that the tax-exempt liberal messaging organization has steadily committed more of its resources to defending Obama from critical media coverage during 2012. Between May 29, the day Mitt Romney crossed the delegate threshold to secure the GOP nomination, and June 11, fully 60 percent of the Web articles produced by Media Matters have set out to defend the president."
But Media Matters didn't always treat the president as its Alpha and Omega. During the 2008 Democratic primary,Hillary was their main squeeze. But as the saying goes, if you can't be with the liberal partisan you love, love the liberal partisan your with.
And the fact that non-profit organizations are barred from political activities doesn't seem to mean anything to Media Matters since they know they'll never be called to account by the IRS under an Obama administration.
