You've got Steve that's up for talks on Fox News Washington media at -- -- -- -- say what's our topic well it's obvious really.
First of several reports by the daily caller web site.
On media matters now this is a group that was establish and now headed by a guy named David Brock.
Some years ago to fight conservative bias in the media mainly going after fox and other -- I want FOX & Friends are -- husband media as the -- Here here's the -- a little.
The liberals have had the field -- themselves for years there AB CNBC and CBS then fox the Internet talk radio and other conservative blogs about let's come along.
And simply make up for some of the bias of the left.
-- the very clever strategy of media matters here is to try to a Harman.
The factual and even opinion reporting coming from the right in order that they can return to some kind of dominance which isn't gonna happen.
They -- people like Don Imus Lou Dobbs.
And Glenn Beck that they claim to have helped -- from their previous positions.
But I'm a little suspect of the cheerleading on that particular subject but I don't subscribe to what my good friend the First Amendment expert Nat Hentoff.
Has set the answer to speech you don't like is not -- other not to -- it's more speech.
Everyone should be included to give their real opinions on subjects so that they can be debated fairly in the marketplace of ideas.
You don't advance democracy when you have to silence or get people fired.
So -- -- the coughing so well.
So that's my drive.
Honor what I noticed with Rick.
-- the -- media matters and and other.
You know right leaning sites as well is that they take something that the -- -- Anderson -- -- -- has set an even if there's a clarification.
An excuse me.
They they focus on that one little line -- they take it out of contact they don't use the whole contest that this happens on both sides of the fence count.
What does but -- media matters of course they are in according to the daily caller regular contact with the White House a Democratic Party.
And other liberal interest groups in order to advance a particular agenda this in my view differs.
From for example the Media Research Center one of whose whose represented you just had all of which for the most part.
Deals only with the sound bites and the statements.
What is being said on the cable networks and -- on the mainstream.
Three broadcast networks I think that's a big difference as far as I know.
-- -- -- associated in terms of being a fan not a paid representative of media research center for many years they simply tell you what the leftists saying.
They don't have a particular -- are taking money from a group.
That is advancing or certainly consulting in the past with the bush White House or some other right wing group.
Gentlemen what do you say about this time I thought.
No I agree Cal's point that what makes it.
Qualitatively and fundamentally different is the coordination with with the White House -- the daily caller peace documents through White House visitor logs.
So they are pretty explicitly eight -- of billionaire funded -- -- direct outreach arm of the White House and then the Obama administration that -- does have significant impact on.
On major media outlets the -- piece also refers to.
Quotes from media matters operatives that are deciding.
Dozen or so.
Of -- Mainstream media Talking Heads that will gladly and gleefully.
Parent and and report on basically anything that that that they give them.
He knows -- could go over two point that you made more speeches better not -- I told -- article that -- before that it teaches Columbia Tomasson all the time.
I don't care -- Democrat or -- Republican and never asked that a city.
Read that watched everybody that's right read and watch everybody because -- where others you this is this is a 24 hour news environment.
And you've -- there is a they're used to be a very fit.
Wrong line between what it was to you reporter as opposed who have come into absolute end deadline has gotten blurred a bit because of the cycle that we're -- 24 hour news cycle so it's important that you read everything that you watch everything kitchens.
I -- watch PBS or Hilltop watching everything.
And you know.
I've said on this on this panel before the guys.
Obama supporter of Democrat and I appreciate your let me show you table okay.
There but they did the other thing that that leads to I think a lack of trust in what is collectively.
I've known as the media is all these people who.
Serve in government and they go into the media Republicans a few.
But mostly Democrats and you think of George Stephanopoulos of course who was a major defender Bill Clinton Diane Sawyer worked for Richard Nixon as a young woman.
But she tends toward the liberal side now maybe she was and I don't know but third awful lot of people -- people see this revolving door.
I don't see people completely committed to journalism real journalism anymore and I see too many with their own personal agendas.
Working into their reporting about how the kind of journalism I grew up what.
That's not going kind of -- internals a lot of us who got up at the very quick count question for you does the Media Research Center.
Have tax exempt status and are they an effective counter to media matters -- I don't know about the first part I suspect.
Although I don't know so don't take this is gospel that we're probably a C four.
This not a -- -- C threes or religious charitable C four you can about involve yourself from political things but I'm sure he go to their web page or send an email that could give you information on that.
I see I don't see -- -- -- anybody I think media matters of anything is a counter.
They don't seek to intimidate they simply seek to inform they have this annual dinner.
We're almost annual -- called.
That this honors awards which are very funny that come up -- all these clips of people saying just incredibly outrageous things like.
One of the more famous was -- Chris.
Matthews saying that Obama gives him a thrill up his leg like has already come out -- -- this is.
This is this is just it's abusing it really does it didn't really have that right they were that was -- Larry King used to do this -- show unbiased and after a particularly outrageous.
Example over the you have 45 journalists on to talk about bias in the media and he asked them.
Anybody has any -- of the story this or not we don't see any delay concluded the most out of the net.
I thought -- -- -- -- on Saturdays and at thirty.
-- and we thank you look he's -- I mean I don't know that's probably has just got he's a lot better looking -- here very handsome --
