Media Matters
for America

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY'S JUNK YARD DOG 
IT BARKS!    IT BITES!
IT'S A HIGH MAINTENANCE LAP POOCH!
◄David Brock, conservative-turned-liberal, created it. Friends of Hillary / Soros / Lewis, and others nursed it. Simon Rosenberg's NDN invited Brock to a bigtime launch event. John Podesta's Center for American Progress incubated MMA. Drummond Pike's Tides Foundation built it into a power player by funneling huge grants from a bevy of Democrat fat-cats. Two big-money donors and scads of Democrat operatives sat on its board of directors. MMA has received nearly 170 foundation grants since its 2003 inception, amounting to over $14 million and much more from individual donors.
Nice headquarters office, too.

Self Description: Media Matters for America (MMA) is a Web-based, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.
Launched in May 2004, Media Matters for America put in place, for the first time, the means to systematically monitor a cross section of print, broadcast, cable, radio, and Internet media outlets for conservative misinformation — news or commentary that is not accurate, reliable, or credible and that forwards the conservative agenda — every day, in real time.

Actual:
Democratic Party attack operation.

Separation Psychodrama

MMA was conceived by former conservative muckraker for The American Spectator, David Brock, who made his name (and big bucks) by trashing leftists, particularly in his 1993 best-seller The Real Anita Hill ("a little bit nutty and a little bit slutty").
Hillary Clinton was his next target, and Simon & Schuster gave him a million-dollar advance for a real investigative blockbuster. But
The Seduction of Hillary Rodham was so tame and lame it was the shame of 1997. Sales slumped and Brock was dumped.
He reportedly had a breakdown and spent some hospital time.
In July 1997, Esquire published his "Confessions of a Right-Wing Hit Man," where he wrote that his previous articles and books had all been lies - and so began his career trashing former colleagues. They didn't really like him anyway, he said, because he was gay, as if he were the only gay conservative in Washington.
More than one commentator wondered whether someone who had written nothing but lies for most of his career was telling the truth now.

Before plotting his revenge, Blinded by the Right: The Conscience of an Ex-Conservative, Brock made important friends on the Left. One of the first was John Podesta, head of the Center for American Progress, with its Soros / Sandler / Hillary money network. Brock met with a number of leading Democratic Party figures, including former Senator Hillary Clinton, former Senator Tom Daschle of South Dakota, and former Vice President Al Gore. Wealthy leftists made Brock the right man at the right time for the Left. Media Matters for America formally launched in May, 2004.

However, both of Brock's attack groups, Media Matters and its Action Fund, were well developed and receiving large donations in 2003. Their website went up in November. The groups received foundation grants before they had IRS exemption approval, which were legally passed through Drummond Pike's Tides Foundation - which took on Media Matters for America as a formal Project, a connection to vast money supplies from leftist donors.

The first MMA foundation grant came from Stephen M. Silberstein Foundation in 2003, $100,000.00 for "Research and education." Silberstein founded Innovative Interfaces Inc., the world's leading supplier of computer software for the automation of college and city libraries. He is an alumnus of the University of California at Berkeley, as is David Brock.

But the real financial empire that put Brock and his Media Matters group on the map was the Tides Network, including the Tides Foundation, which passed through $122,475 to MMA in 2003. All of this was groundwork to make it appear that MMA spontaneously appeared full-blown the next May.

In May 2004, Tides passed through
$2,165,497 to MMA, a single grant comprised of many secret gifts (see Donor Advised Funds) from a roster of affluent donors including Leo Hindery Jr., former cable magnate; Susie Tompkins Buell, co-founder of Esprit clothing (and a close ally of Hillary Clinton); James Hormel, a San Francisco philanthropist and SPAM heir; Bren Simon, wife of shopping-mall developer Mel Simon; and New York psychologist and philanthropist Gail Furman. Other large gifts that year came from the Gruber Family Foundation ($100,000), the Goatie Foundation ($150,000), and the pro-Castro Arca Foundation ($100,000).

Most of MMA's original 2004 staff were former Democratic Party operatives.

The Great Awakening:
Rob Stein's PowerPoint
Unveiled Sunday, July 25, 2004

David Brock was formally introduced to key left-wing leaders at a Boston gathering held to unveil the closely-held strategic analysis of right-wing power and money created by Democrat operative Rob Stein, presented to a select few alongside the Democratic National Convention that nominated John Kerry for President.

Simon Rosenberg's NDN held an invitation-only private premiere at the Tremont Wyndham Hotel of the legendary Rob Stein PowerPoint, "The Conservative Message Machine's Money Matrix."
It was the day before the Democratic National Convention opened in Boston to nominate John Kerry their nominee for President of the United States.
And a young Senator from Chicago named Barack Obama gave a knock-out speech.
Rob Stein explained how conservatives got power:

● Building a group of scholars-on-call to defend the system;

● Training campus activists to be vocally pro-business;

● Monitoring and critiquing the media;

● Building legal organizations that could fight back in the courts;

● And building a cadre of issue-framing professionals to take a "more aggressive" message to the media and the public.

● The conclusion was obvious: The Left Needs the Right's Stuff. "We need one of those."


Simon Rosenberg, powerful leader of NDN, promoted Stein's idea. He had already shown the PowerPoint to George Soros, Peter Lewis, Silicon Valley millionaire Andy Rappaport, and many other wealthy leftists, and now revealed that Stein's concept had been adopted by The Phoenix Group, named after the fabulous bird reborn from the ashes of its earlier life. This group would develop into the highly secretive Democracy Alliance that acted as gatekeeper for leftist money from donors of exceptional wealth.
David Brock explained to the gathering that his new group, Media Matters for America, would act as the Left's version of the Right's tactic of Monitoring and critiquing the media. With the customary ferocity of a new convert, Brock promised to hound and harass the Right for every word it said or wrote or posted on the Web. His group would comprehensively monitor, analyze, and correct conservative misinformation. The money poured in. The invective poured out.

Between Silberstein's initial $100,000 gift and the most recently reported $150,000 from the Bauman Family Foundation in 2009, Media Matters for America has received 167 traceable foundation grants totalling $14,063,397 plus much more from the Democracy Alliance and other secret donors. Despite this generosity, Media Matters for America suffered a loss of $1,723,146 in 2008, more than it spent on fundraising.


Silencing Glenn Beck - Again

The Media Matters Action Network sent out an appeal on July 30, 2010 that read:

On Sunday, July 18, unhinged ex-convict Byron Williams loaded his truck with guns and headed up a California highway with the intention of starting a revolution. If he hadn't been stopped by brave officers -- two of whom were wounded in the confrontation -- he could have carried out a plan to kill staff at progressive organizations, including the Tides Foundation.

What is the Tides Foundation? It's the nonprofit that Glenn Beck brags about "turning the light of day" on by constantly attacking it as part of a socialist conspiracy to destroy our government. The Tides Foundation isn't the shadowy political influence of Beck's fantasies -- it's a transparent organization known in the philanthropic community for doing good public service. Make no mistake: Beck's intention was to paint the Tides Foundation as a dangerous, increasingly powerful threat to freedom that must be stopped. And Williams set out to stop them.

It's time for those who profit from Beck to take responsibility for his incitements to violence. Beck's paranoid, dishonest and incendiary rhetoric doesn't just reflect on Beck -- it reflects on News Corp., Fox News' parent company, and its shareholders. Morgan Stanley owns nearly $300,000,000 in News Corp. stock, Bank of New York more than $175,000,000, Goldman Sachs $115,000,000, and JPMorgan Chase nearly $70,000,000. As owners of the company, they need to take responsibility for the conduct of its employees.

Demand that News Corp.'s major shareholders renounce Glenn Beck's violent rhetoric and its dangerous consequences.

As Media Matters Senior Fellow Eric Boehlert wrote:

Indeed, for more than a year Beck has been portraying the progressive organization as a central player in a larger, nefarious cabal of Marxist/socialist/Nazi Obama-loving outlets determined to destroy democracy in America. Beck has routinely smeared the low-profile entity for being staffed by "thugs" and "bullies" and involved in "the nasty of the nastiest," like indoctrinating schoolchildren and creating a "mass organization to seize power."

As Media Matters reported, the conspiratorial host had mentioned (read: attacked) the little-known progressive organization nearly 30 times on his Fox program alone since it premiered in 2009, including several mentions in the last month. (Beck's the only TV talker who regularly references the foundation, according to our Nexis searches.)

So yes, Beck has done all he can to scare the hell out of people about the Tides Foundation and "turn the light of day" onto an organization that actually facilitates non-profit giving.

And guess what? Everybody in America would have found out about the Tides Foundation last week if Byron Williams had had his way.

Demand that News Corp.'s major shareholders renounce Glenn Beck's violent rhetoric and its dangerous consequences.

Thank you again for your support.

Ari Rabin-Havt
Media Matters for America

The email wasn’t so transparent:
The Tides Foundation mentored and has given Media Matters $3 million.

$3,065,197, to be exact.

Tides is their biggest donor.

And they don't even mention it!
 

They're dishonest - not telling they're dancing on Tides strings!

They're using incendiary rhetoric - blaming Beck for a convicted felon's crime!

They're paranoid - Beck wasn't lying, he was voicing his honest views!

Tides just couldn't stand being outed and likely insisted that Media Matters use the failed Williams incident to paint Tides as innocuous and endangered -
BUT DON'T MENTION THE THREE MILLION BUCKS WE GAVE YOU!

THAT WOULD SHOW WE REALLY DO RUN A LEFT-WING EMPIRE!

And if you check out all of the Left Tracking Library's detailed Tides profiles,
you'll see that Glenn Beck didn't mention the half of it!
 

See for yourself, the Tides money, people, and left-wing projects:

Tides Center (includes grant data)

The "Fire Glenn Beck" campaign is an unfair, shameless shield
for MMA's biggest cash cow.

Their name ought to be MONEY Matters for America.

 

Demand that Media Matters donors renounce David Brock and Ari Rabin-Havt
for their wildly deceptive "Fire Glenn Beck" campaign
and for hiding the truth about their huge
Tides Foundation grants.
