Media Matters and the liberal smear machine

From Newsbusters:

“The liberal media isn’t going to spell out exactly how it goes about smearing conservatives, so Bill O’Reilly helpfully explained it on “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Boiled down it goes like this: George Soros (and others) fund one of the left’s most prominent noise machines, Media Matters for America, which distorts statements made by conservatives and then urges reporters to provide saturation coverage of such statements as proof conservatives are hypocritical and sinister.

In his “talking points” segment, O’Reilly references the Obama administration’s strategy of attempting to marginalize its most vocal opponent, radio talk show giant Rush Limbaugh (video available at YouTube):

BILL O’REILLY: The Limbaugh-Obama controversy is thankfully just about over, but the far-left smear machine that propelled it to our attention is just getting started.”

It didn’t just start, and neither is Limbaugh the first victim.  Doesn’t necessarily have to be a “conservative” either.  Just anybody they choose to target, or try to destroy.  I first caught on to it in April of 2007.
