    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.

    The group, launched as a more traditional media critic, has all but abandoned its monitoring of newspapers and other television networks and is narrowing its focus to Fox and a handful of conservative websites, which its leaders view as political organizations and the “nerve center” of the conservative movement. The shift reflects the centrality of the cable channel to the contemporary conservative movement, as well as the loathing it inspires among liberals — not least among the donors who fund Media Matters’ staff of about 90, who are arrayed in neat rows in a giant war room above Massachusetts Avenue.

    “The strategy that we had had toward Fox was basically a strategy of containment,” said Brock, Media Matters’ chairman and founder and a former conservative journalist, adding that the group’s main aim had been to challenge the factual claims of the channel and to attempt to prevent them from reaching the mainstream media.

    Two points:

    1. Liberals say freedom of speech is a fundamental right. This is another example of their true belief that it is a right only of the left.

    2. How many news networks are there? Seems like these attacks are almost always aimed at FOX. Shows just how relevant they are.

    Media matters is on the verge of crossing a line that could get their tax exempt status revoked.

    Liberals are such idiots.

    Actually, it's worse than that. Now there may be criminal fraud charges filed against Media Matters.

    I think you owe idiots an apology.
