Re: Media Matters

Good point from a reader:

Jonah,

Big fan. Never miss anything you write. I’m sure this is all obvious, so you can delete it if you can’t stand the rant…

Speaking of Media Matters for America (MMFA) (to which you referred in your

Corner post tonight), they seem to offer themselves as the left-wing version of the Media Research Center (MRC) in some pathetic attempt at balance. But the simple fact that they ripped you (unfairly) for your syndicated column undermines their facade. MRC focuses its critical eye on the MSM, and generally leaves alone those who make their left/right leanings known to the world. They leave alone people like Maureen Dowd, Paul Krugman, Al Franken, Alan Colmes, etc., because they don’t hide their biases.

But who does MMFA attack? You, Rush, Ann Coulter, Tucker Carlson…oh and

Fox, for good measure. But the pundits they malign announce their

conservatism. Where is the MMFA on NBC, ABC, CBS, the NYT, WaPO, etc.?

Nowhere, of course, because they don’t have any complaints there. Only the

right is biased.
