Media Matters…here’s the thing with Media Matters. Not many of them are over 30 years old. They act more like teenagers, and have ZERO CLUE that they are destroying peoples lives.
See what I mean with the proper description of McCarthyism: The term is also now used more generally to describe reckless, unsubstantiated accusations, as well as demagogic attacks on the character or patriotism of political adversaries.
******Now, some people believe that McCarthy was ‘right’ -However, I beg to differ on several accounts; It is one thing to question, another to destroy. Accusations made then, destroyed people’s lives that were not Communistic at all, true SOME were, but not all.
The sick part, is that some of the scare was accurate, but the way people were BLACKLISTED is what is being attempted now, by spoiled, rotten, incredibly stupid KIDS, @ M.M.’s, most not over age 30, as I explained above., which is why much of their intended attacks cannot be taken serious, their AGE and inexperience in life MUST be EXPOSED.
Their AGE plays key factor, they are RECKLESS, which most people are, who are under age 30, & the ‘elders’ @ Media Matters are USING their “Youthful Security” Shame on them!
Eric should know better, being older.

Look, Eric; We all saw ACORN. Media Matters is the outfit who should be questioned regarding their character, recklessness, and unsubstantiated accusations…. Why? They are aiding a group of FRAUDS that were OK with a PROSTITUTE AND A PIMP, (in pretense) being funded by our tax-paying dollars.
Was Breitbart duped by O’Keefe on the ACORN pimp hoax? These people are positively unbelievable. They spin this crap all over the place, DO NOT care whose lives they hurt in the process, fulfilling the words of Alinsky;
“THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS“
People hurt in the McCarthy Scares, (some) are the people that Media Matters are WITH, so, M.M. WILL lose a LOT of support from the elderly crowd, who will sympathize with Breitbart, Dobbs, Beck, Savage, Levin, ETC.. (Wiki)
“They came for the Jew, but I wasn’t Jewish, so I didn’t say a word. Then they came for the Catholics, but I wasn’t Catholic, so I didn’t say a word. Then they came for the Baptists, but I wasn’t a Baptist, so I didn’t say a word. Then they came for me, but there was nobody left to say anything” -Anonymous
