Despite the fact that Hillary Clinton publicly boasted about creating Media Matters and that this information has been common knowledge inside the beltway, the far-left group has repeatedly issued false denials of these connections. But in true Clintonian fashion, these denials are hardly that at all. Here is the phrase that the group keeps falling back on:"Media Matters for America is a 'progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.' The Center for American Progress identifies itself on its website as 'a progressive think-tank dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through ideas and action.'"Of course this means nothing whatsoever as far as Hillary Clinton goes. And yet in typical disreputable MM fashion, the far left group has repeatedly referenced it in subsequent articles as a denial of a Clinton connection.Apparently Media Matters can't even quote itself in context! And this is the same group that many elite news organizations trust to accurately quote Rush Limbaugh or Bill O'Reilly?I can't wait to see how the group will try to spin and lie about Hillary Clinton saying she "helped start and support" Media Matters.
