“As reported in a recent posting, Accuracy in Media presented its annual Reed Irvine Media Awards for Investigative and Grassroots Journalism amidst a trumped up controversy reported in The Washington Post, Politico and Big Journalism. Awards were presented to Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News for her investigative reporting on Operation Fast and Furious as well as Solyndra and other “green energy” projects in which the Obama administration has invested Americans’ taxpayer dollars; and Dana Loesch, Editor-in-chief of Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism, for her tireless work as a grassroots journalist.

The pro-Democratic Party media watchdog, Media Matters, led the effort to browbeat Attkisson and CBS into backing out of accepting the award. They claim her reporting was shoddy and that CBS shouldn’t allow her to accept an award from a partisan group, as they call Accuracy in Media. Yet as AIM’s Cliff Kincaid recently exposed, the head of Media Matters, David Brock, has created a so-called Democratic ‘Super PAC’ specifically devoted to electing Democrats and defeating Republicans…”


Every occasionally, someone on the left appears to grow a pair and takes a stand, if only for a moment. Kudos to CBS for doing just that in this instance against the Marxist propaganda machine that fails day after day to do its job objectively thereby doing the American public a major disservice.

As you know, The Daily Caller is doing an all-out expose on the Soros funded, White House directed, David Brock – Media Matters.  Feel free to check out what they have uncovered thus far, here.

It is fair to note that Soros is not the only Progressive entity funding Media Matters whose job is to exclusive smear and destroy the right.  See The Daily Caller’s articles entitled, “Media Matters accepted $50K grant for ‘fact checking’ religious broadcasts” and “Left-wing foundations lavish millions on Media Matters.”
