Progressive Goon Squad Displaying New Civility

Ben Smith over at Politico must think this is some sort of revelation, the fact that Media Matters is targeting Fox News but really it is just an affirmation of what we already knew. I guess if there is some new news in the article it is the level of venom and hatred that resides in the hearts and minds of the Media Matters myrmidons. Really this level of obsession is unhealthy and borders on the Andrew Sullivan's degree of craziness associated with all things related to the reproduction abilities of the Palin's.
The liberal group Media Matters has quietly transformed itself in preparation for what its founder, David Brock, described in an interview as an all-out campaign of “guerrilla warfare and sabotage” aimed at the Fox News Channel.

I guess that civility memo just flew right across their desk and into file 13 faster then their writers could generate it.

Media Matters are acting like some sort of Borg collective, running around demanding that everyone assimilate, but in that regard they act no different then any liberal who when confronted with a conservative African American don't immediately start hurling the Uncle Tom references at them. Progressives and liberals despise anybody or anything that will not reside in the designated group that they have assigned them to. Their interpretation of free speech means you are free to have free speech as long as you use our talking points.

There is a reason Fox News is #1 but as an employee of Fox News, regardless of capacity from the secretaries to Rupert Murdoch, knowing that you have a group of unhinged people monitoring your every move and poring over your personal information has got to be a little unnerving and knowing that for this group nothing is beneath them I would be looking to take measures to protect myself.

Don't ever think Media Matters is just an innocent bunch of obsessed bloggers. If they put you in their crosshairs they will stop at nothing to destroy you. They will make the stuff up knowing full well that many traditional media outlets not only have their back but will work with them to promote the storyline regardless of if there is one bit of factual information in it or not.

The on air Fox personalities are one thing, but Media Matters is making it clear they don't care if you are janitor or the night watchman, if you work for Fox News they are coming after you.
We made a list of every single person who works for Fox and tried to figure out who might be disgruntled and why, and we went out to try to meet them,” he said. “Clearly, somebody in that organization is giving us primary source documents.”

Media Matters, he said, is also conducting “opposition research” on a dozen or so “mid- and senior-level execs and producers,” a campaign style move that he and Brock said would simply involve recording their public appearances and digging into public records associated with them.

My sympathies are with the Fox News employees who are going to have to endure this self declared war and I would think somewhere out there are some lawyers who would be willing to help these folks with the invasion of their privacy and with what will no doubt manifest itself in some physical confrontations with the minions of this progressive organization because that is exactly how they operate. Intimidation, fear, and threats.

Being a big dog lover I might also suggest that Fox employees look into some sort of canine companionship so that when the Media Matters employee who forgets to take his meds that day and shows up on your front lawn can also be given a chance to evaluate their cardio vascular conditioning level.

The liberal/progressive political movement is out of control and has seeped into the worst of the anti-American policy.  There is little more important to us than our freedom of speech, our right to think and proclaim our true beliefs.  By using any means to silence an opposing view,  M.M. is denying us a right granted by our Constitution.

"Quietly transformed itself" is the insufferable paraphiliac Ben Smith's description of what the entire Soros terror underground is preparing to do.   The hilarious part is that the libtard left is losing adherents rapidly as more Americans wake up to the fact that they're being gulled by institutional marxist publications like the NYT, which has lost 21% of paid circ & 57% of its profit margin since the abominable Keller turned it into an agitprop broadsheet front-page above-the-fold.

Ditto MessNBC which is hemorrhaging viewers after Keith Obaminable departed and whose mission is to attack Fox 24-7, as does the newish NBC affiliate Mediaite on-line.  Indeed, only CNN has retained a shred, and not much more than that, of integrity in the concerted attack by the alphabet loons against Fox, which continues to devour the chickens of the lamestream media and grow larger.

Ditto the Wall Street Journal, now the largest paid circ in the USA and growing, while EVERY daily newspaper in the country is losing paid circ---some like the Washington Post, Boston Globe & LAT, more than the hapless NYT.

Good riddance to bad rubbish and may Brock and other Soros lackeys pay the karmic price for their sick and twisted attacks on the US constitution.

I suggest the Fox employees retain the legal services of the firm Colt, Glock, Smith & Wesson.  They specialize in personal defense cases such as the ones I suspect they will soon be the target of.

<span>What's the old expression - "if you're not catching any flak, you're not over the target". FOX must be on target. Media Matters. just like that nitwit Olbermann, is pathologically obsessed with FOX. And I agree, it's getting dangerous. Keep up the good work FOX.  
As for the progressives, liberal, far-left or whatever name they're going by these days, they are in seriously need of treatment. Hence the reason I am now a conservative/libertarian (depending on the issue) the last fifteen years.  
And these sick lefties (like the nasty pedophiles they are) the last two years have come out of the closet and exposed themselves showing the world what they're really all about.  
And all they can do is wish death upon anyone who doesn't agree with them. That says a lot about their movement and the kind of people they are..</span>

sounds like a RICO-ish conspiracy to threaten and harm. I'd sue their ass the first example they demonstrate
