And finally tonight the blatant bias -- media matters has been exposed thanks to shocking internal memos uncovered by the daily caller.
And one of the main targets of that left leaning organization is none other than the Fox News Channel.
-- what memo from 2009 written to the founder and president reads quote simply put the progressive movement is in need of an enemy.
George W -- gotten we really don't have John McCain to kick around anymore.
Filling the lack of leadership on the right Fox News has emerged as the central enemy an antagonist of the Obama administration.
Our congressional majorities and the progressive movement has a hole.
Some say memo also suggested that it would be a good idea to do opposition research on the people that work and this network.
It reads quote we should also hire a team of trackers to stake out private and public events.
With Fox News anchors post reporters prominent contributors and senior network -- corporate staff.
Now congress is reportedly planning to question the group's tax exempt status joining me now -- reaction from the Fox Business Network.
Sandra Smith and the co host of the five she deals were Beckel five days a week Andrea ten Paris she has our our.
-- -- let's start with a couple things here.
Before we get to this just the tactics of trying to smear and destroy people's lives bad enough in and of itself.
The collaboration that they talk about on a weekly basis wouldn't White House.
Means this is a political operation.
This is not up a 501 C three then you know tax exempt organization of this sounds like a political organization and -- close collaboration with White House.
Jet designed to quote smear.
And conduct sabotage and guerrilla warfare as its head David Brock told Politico in an interview.
And -- said many times this is there's nothing charitable or educational.
About media matters and just because they're -- the charity folks -- not mean they're doing good work their sole existence Sean.
The sole purpose of media matters is to take out a for profit company which is News Corp.
the parent company.
The reason they want to take it how does because they don't want opposition speech they don't want alternative voices heard in the media.
Now as strange is this may sound.
Now I think if they're collaborating with the White House that's proven yet not tax exempt that would be a violation of law and I wanna know this is this if they have and enemies list.
And they collaborated the White House doesn't mean the White House may have an enemy's list.
What you could -- actually draw they don't connect those dots.
But hey at the end of the I don't let my name was on the list.
In that in net stockings that the political agenda out right.
This is it tax exempt organization.
Once we see proven these letters that there's a political agenda.
Surely -- should be scrutinized and reviewed by congress without a doubt Chuck Grassley are pretty called for it.
This must happen if anything -- just digging through the numbers.
Prove this whole thing I mean you -- about fourteen point six million dollars they raked in under the Obama administration.
We're talking about half of them coming half that dollar amount coming from 21 donors to which donated over -- million dollars.
But that's anonymous it -- I guess holding people accountable and they hire people to to monitor every word.
That is uttered on talk radio by conservatives -- any conservative voice on the Fox News Channel with putting a liberal voices by the way they -- ignore those interest at ten.
So the fact that they do that -- right I guess that's fair game from the public.
Their mission environmental hasn't reacted probably -- -- should come -- if -- can yeah and that's and that's okay but you can't get taxes and some status exactly that.
Medical and collaborate on the White House active which -- clearly showing mayor Baird that's what they're just trying to do now after also training an army -- democratic.
-- -- Arguably and they are putting on campaigns and their place in different places which is also -- they also want to -- Fox News interestingly and.
Follow us in our private lives that's their hopes of taking out people.
This is now that is an enemy's list to hurt people specifically because you disagree with a -- one other issue here.
One of the things we learned and all of this.
NBC's cable news operation.
They're claiming that they write the script from them every single night and not only the -- But it's also the only times the New York Times the Washington Post columnist like -- -- Dion and and Eugene Robinson and they're they're basically taking.
This left wing propaganda fed to the my assuming -- but the White House.
And it it runs his noose -- runs a whole NBC news organization.
I got a lot of flack when I send some not all members of the liberal media are lazy.
This is case in point.
They take the talking points they write the stories they don't do the research.
We're not really -- surprise is that that the mainstream media's listening to an organization like media matters but the fact the media matters can be coordinating with the White House.
Is really I mean that's just -- and it's -- the funny thing is is that claiming Fox News sets the agenda for the rest of the media right brain.
Well he -- -- -- -- -- -- say they take that a little jealousy will get their little -- us but I think that's also look at that the bigger picture here is that they're targeting Fox News.
Not the broader conservative media they are solely targeted on falsely fox said but it's also conservative radio they're after me in -- and and others because fox is the one place you go and you can get both sides of the story you get fair and balanced but they don't like fair and balance the left they have to silence any kind of opposing argument and that's what they're doing how.
How does NBC.
Get out of this.
From the point of view.
But as the next installment I and I don't they set a publicly yet I've spoken to the guys in the daily caller the next -- going to be they're gonna show you examples.
Media matters wrote this and this is the script.
I'm NBC news he's the same liberal organizations that are to asking for the tax season -- be taken away from the big oil companies influence or to look at -- this matter.
Get this is big got tax exempt status but I did that pretty find -- pretty good.
Until the economy is right so the -- demonize is that businesses that are actually trying to make a profit in trying to -- everyday -- and then there's the other economy like the media matters tax exempt status.
They're using this.
-- I would say and not paying taxes to take out a for profit.
Corporate unbelievable unbelievable talk about who it's actually scary.
Because if you go to the White House the interaction on a weekly basis then you go to the filtering to the media.
It's just reminds me of a propaganda.
Campaign to destroy people.
-- lifetime liberal tolerance be on display and read many others as a liberal you know raw politics of personal.
-- personal destruction because they don't want other voices that's frightening -- I guess good to see you and coming up it was all caught on tape a stunning admission from the secretary.
