Liberal UnderWorld War on Conservative Journalism

We know even without even seeing hard evidence that liberals are in a war against our country’s founding principles and constitutional rights.

This is a war that they CAN NOT be allowed to win if we hope to keep our country safe from outside and inside destructive forces, yet daily we see more actions they are taking in a concerted, well planned, and vicious effort to do just that by turning bias and media into a mouthpiece that spouts only what they want to hear.

Take the latest and most vicious attack on media reporters to date: Bill O’Reilly.

Plan of Attack Liberals use to:

Plant a patsy with a plan to weaken and castrate truth; add harassment and vicious fake news telecasts over every wave length and MSM source for at least a week; pressure advertisers to drop their support; and finally add insult to injury by filing irrational lawsuits which are nothing less than extortion…that has been the lefts modis operandi for years but never more obviously done than in the last six months.

Whether people enjoyed Bill O’Reilly’s segments or not, the very fact that conservatives are under attack should be alarming. Our freedom of speech and all that the constitution of our nation provides is also under attack. If one conservative is targeted today, so will the next, and the next after that until the left has finally muzzled the right. That is NOT an American philosophy but pure Marxist communism in action.

Inevitably when traced back, all roads are continuing to lead to George Soros and his evil attacks of real democratic principles through his vast organizations either directly or indirectly funded by his ill-gotten gold made off his own manipulations around the world. He HAS to be stopped not just for the national security of this country but his efforts at destroying freedom and democratic principles in most countries of the world. If we can’t or don’t stop him and his associates then what other country even has a chance against his evil?

Leaked Email Shows George Soros’ MEDIA MATTERS Orchestrated O’Reilly Smear Campaign
Fox News has removed their ratings king – Bill O’Reilly – E-mail shows that MEDIA MATTERS was behind smear campaign.

Carter Apr 19th, 2017

 

Wednesday, Glenn Beck tweeted out a screenshot of an email from the Bonner Group.

The Bonner Group is a leftist fundraising Super PAC for Hillary Clinton under the employ of George Soros’ Media Matters.

The email reads:

“For years Bill O’Reilly has been one of the worst purveyors of misinformation on Fox News. A serial misinformer, pushing many of the most extreme, sexist, racist, homophobic, and xenophobic conservative theories on TV . . . Thanks to Media Matters, O’Reilly and Fox News are being held accountable.”

The Secret World of a Well-Paid ‘Donor Adviser’ in Politics

Donor advisers; like Mary Pat Bonner have immense power in the world of political fund-raising, and their commissions are provoking complaints from big-money contributors.

New York Times
By Nicholas Confessore
February 5, 2015

A constellation of left-leaning nonprofits and “super PACs” are raising tens of millions of dollars to pave the way for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign — and nearly all of them have paid Mary Pat Bonner a cut.

Over the past several years, the groups, which include American Bridge 21st Century, Media Matters for America and the super PAC Ready for Hillary, have paid Ms. Bonner’s consulting firm in excess of $6 million to help them cultivate wealthy donors and raise money, according to tax filings and campaign disclosures.

Ms. Bonner’s contracts give her firm a commission, typically 12.5 percent, on any money she brings in. Her tenacity, ties to wealthy givers and mastery of making donors happy have made Ms. Bonner, 48, among the most successful practitioners of a trade that is virtually invisible to voters but has taken on immense power and influence in the post-Citizens United world.

Almost every candidate for high office must now court ultrarich donors to finance super PACs. And with each party more reliant than ever on networks of outside groups to supplement its advertising and opposition research, fund-raisers like Ms. Bonner hold the keys to the big-money kingdom.

“The Bonner Group gets us the best fund-raising product for the lowest cost,” said David Brock, the founder of the monitoring group Media Matters and the super PAC American Bridge. “In my experience, the commission incentivizes the fund-raiser to meet the ambitious goals we set.”

But the growing influence of paid fund-raisers has angered donors in both parties, who are skeptical of Washington’s consultant class and the secret, often lucrative deals they reach with campaigns.

Some organizations, like Freedom Partners, overseen by the conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch, emphasize their reliance on salaried staff members to raise money.

“I want my money to go to the candidate, to get them elected; I don’t want it to go to middlemen,” said Andrew Sabin, a prominent Republican donor.

Several Republican presidential contenders are now courting Spencer J. Zwick, Mitt Romney’s finance chairman in 2012. But some former donors grumble about the fund-raising fees paid by Mr. Romney’s campaign committees to limited liability companies established by Mr. Zwick: about $34 million, according to campaign disclosure reports.

…But few fund-raisers seem to command commissions as generous as Ms. Bonner’s. Political fund-raisers are typically paid monthly retainers, which can reach $25,000 a month during campaigns. The Bonner Group is paid almost exclusively on commission, a practice that is legal but frowned upon by some fund-raising consultants, who say it leads to fights with clients and other consultants over credit. It is considered unethical by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, partly because it can encourage abuses and, in the charity world, places self-gain over philanthropy.

…Allies say Ms. Bonner and her 20-member firm are worth the expense. The Bonner Group maintains a database of 70,000 donors and collects detailed information on their past giving, their families and their political relationships. Many praise her energy and personal touch: thank-you notes, for example, or tickets to Broadway shows.

“Without Mary Pat, we would never be where we are today,” said Craig T. Smith, a senior adviser to Ready for Hillary. Mr. Smith said the group had paid Ms. Bonner and some other fund-raisers a single-digit percentage of money raised.

Ms. Bonner, who cut her teeth as a campaign aide and fund-raiser for former Vice President Al Gore, is also known among colleagues for her aggressive tactics. During the 2012 campaign, Ms. Bonner, who was raising money for American Bridge, clashed repeatedly with other Democratic super PACs over joint fund-raising efforts.

…In an email, Ms. Bonner said she routinely disclosed to donors that she was being paid on commission. “We charge all of our clients the same way, so there is no incentive for anyone in the firm to focus on one client more than another,” Ms. Bonner said.

But there is little question who her biggest client is. Mr. Brock’s growing empire, now composed of about 10 interlocking PACs and nonprofits, uses the Bonner Group for all of its development efforts.

Mr. Brock credits Ms. Bonner with helping persuade donors that news media monitoring and opposition research deserve large-scale financial support. His groups brought in more than $28 million in 2014, entitling Ms. Bonner’s firm to about $3.5 million in fees. Her commission represented his entire fund-raising overhead, Mr. Brock said, which compared favorably with that of other nonprofit groups.

He also emailed a statement from 40 donors attesting to the value her firm provided.

…Current and former executives at liberal nonprofits complain about a perception that hiring Ms. Bonner would improve their chances of being included in the Alliance’s investment portfolio.

One Alliance donor, the billionaire Boston investor Vin Ryan, said that he had not been informed of Ms. Bonner’s commission before donating to Media Matters and later demanded a written guarantee from the group that his contributions would be exempt.

“I don’t know what her role in the D.A. is at this point, nor do I know who she actually is a donor adviser to, nor do I know what organizations she represents within the group of organizations who we are supporting,” Mr. Ryan said. “I think it’s outrageous.”

Media Matters for America (MMfA) is a politically progressive media watchdog in the United States. The organization has a stated mission of “comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media”. Set up as a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization, MMfA was founded in 2004 by journalist and political activist David Brock as a counterweight to the conservative Media Research Center. It is known for its aggressive criticism of conservative journalists and media outlets, including its “War on Fox News.

Funding:

MMfA started with the help of $2 million in donations. According to Byron York, additional funding came from MoveOn.org and the New Democrat Network. In 2004, MMfA received the endorsement of the Democracy Alliance, a partnership of wealthy and politically active progressive donors.

In 2010, six years after the Democracy Alliance initially endorsed MMfA, financier George Soros — a founding and continuing member of the Alliance — announced that he was donating $1 million to MMfA.

According to Politico: “Media Matters, however has received funding from or formed partnerships with several groups that Soros funds or has funded. These include the Tides Foundation, Democracy Alliance, Moveon.org and the Center for American Progress.

People:

John Podesta, former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, provided office space for Media Matters early in its formation at the Center for American Progress, a Democratic think tank which Podesta established in 2002.

Hillary Clinton advised Media Matters in its early stages out of a belief that progressives should follow conservatives in forming think tanks and advocacy groups to support their political goals.

Media Matters has hired numerous political professionals who had worked for Democratic politicians and for other progressive groups.

Examples of targeted attacks:

Rush Limbaugh “phony soldiers” – In 2007, Media Matters’ reported radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh saying Iraq war veterans opposed to the war as “the phony soldiers.”  Later a posting of the entire segment by Limbaugh proved the allegation to be faked. Limbaugh said he was the victim of a “smear” by Media Matters, which had taken out of context and selectively edited his comments.

Bill O’Reilly “Harlem restaurant” – In October 2007 television and radio host and commentator Bill O’Reilly said a Media Matters’ headline declaring O’Reilly surprised “there was no difference” between Harlem restaurant and other New York restaurants took out of context comments he made regarding a pleasant dinner he shared with Al Sharpton at a Harlem restaurant. O’Reilly said Media Matters misleadingly took comments spoken five minutes apart and presented them as one.

Laura Schlessinger “Racial slur”– On August 12, 2010, Media Matters reported that radio host Laura Schlessinger said “nigger” eleven times during a discussion with an African-American woman, continuing to say it after the caller took offense at the word.  Schlessinger apologized for the epithet the day after the broadcast. A joint statement of Media Matters and other organizations noted that although Schlessinger “attempted to apologize for using the epithet, the racist diatribe on Tuesday’s show extends far beyond the use of a single word” and urged advertisers to boycott her show. After General Motors, OnStar, and Motel 6 pulled their advertising, Schlessinger said she would not renew her syndication contract set to expire December 2010.

War on Fox – In 2010, MMfA declared a “War on Fox.” Brock said MMfA would focus its efforts on Fox and select conservative websites in what Brock called an “all-out campaign of ‘guerrilla warfare and sabotage.'” MMfA said the greater attention given to Fox was part of a campaign to educate the public about distortions of conservative media, and the greater attention given to Fox.  MMfA said its Drop Fox campaign for advertisers to boycott Fox was also part of its educational mission. MMfA said that changing Fox, not shutting it down, was its goal

    I want to see Trump appoint Bill O’Reilly to head the Federal Communications Commission. Remember, broadcast licenses are issued to those entities that are supposed to serve the public interest. Not just half the public like MSNBC, CNN and others cater to, but “fair and balanced” is the true goal to serve all points of view.

    • Uriel says:

      Interesting Thought. Now That would be justice!

    • I have a big grin on my face at the thought of the heartburn that would cause on the left, but Bill O’Reilly would be fair and balanced. He is not one of my favorite people but I don’t question his fairness or moral character.

  2. Shar says:

    Not mine either Mark. I always thought he was snooty.

    • Uriel says:

      Maybe not so much snooty as the old style concept of I am right so listen to me. However he was usually spot on

  3. Uriel says:

    Liberals are SO PREDICTABLE. We all knew it was only a matter of time before Hannity got hit………..

    Hannity accuser says he didn’t ‘sexually harass’ her, but was ‘creepy’
    BY JOE CONCHA – 04/24/17

    Okay its time to start fact checking on liberals!

  4. Shar says:

    This could be why Mike Pence takes his wife with him so he doesn’t get trapped.
    Read Hannity plans to fight any charges.

  5. Hardnox says:

    I heard the Soros minions are now going after Hannity, except he’s fighting back.

    • Uriel says:

      If Fox caves over Anything else they are completely done. Even now they may be in deep do.
