-- back segment tonight the daily caller website filed a Freedom of Information Act request to find out of the far left tax exempt organization media matters.
Was actively helping attorney general Eric Holder in some controversies.
While a caller got the documents and the answer is yes media matters is helping hold.
-- some Washington Tucker Carlson the editor in chief of the daily caller the first -- full disclosure -- the audience I despise media matters.
I think that they are dishonest smear merchants and the fact that they operate on my tax dollar.
Is a disgrace.
And that's one of the downsides of democracy is we don't happen.
Of the non profits right and is just absolutely off the chart.
They're in business for one thing only to assassinate people with whom they disagree.
And because they are so far left that means that anybody moderating conservative can be smeared by that they've done -- for years -- gotten away with it.
Now you -- proof that not only do they smear people on the right.
But there helping.
Helping the Democratic Party in the form of attorney general holder correct.
That is exactly right we got over seventy pages of emails between spokesman at the Department of Justice.
And writers from media matters in which they discuss.
Programming -- -- on Fox News.
Pieces written in the daily caller other journalism critical or that they believe is critical of certain programs from the Justice Department.
Mostly fast and furious right now why would -- passengers by the -- scandal involving the guns -- to Mexico where the border agent was who was killed why would these pages be in print.
These I I assume more emails is that right.
That's exactly -- they they revealed delete emails.
Because they can't because.
Emails from executive branch offices are subject to freedom of information requests which by the way.
We put in nine months ago -- the rules require them to respond within twenty days.
And it took nine months of slow walking them accomplish these documents and I can see why because they're damning -- right away that anybody any government agency the Justice Department in this.
When they email somebody that is correct they have to put the email in their system and and keep it.
Exactly are for official business -- our camera so they -- seventy pages to media matters that's an outrage.
In itself just emailing that -- volume.
Our tax dollars are right -- just -- is -- solving crimes directing us and -- emailing the media matters that itself is outrageous.
Now well that that that although the but the problem is that.
The office of public information its job is to explain to the public with the Justice Department is doing and yet in these emails is very clear they are -- meeting.
With the media matters to create propaganda which is to say to subvert the facts.
For political gain and there's really no way around that that's what -- do you give me -- -- smoking gun memo gimme gimme the most powerful thing.
That you got out of the -- request well there Derek Koppel in in one instance you have a writer for media matters emailing almost instant messaging.
-- the head of public affairs at the Justice Department saying are you watching Bill Hemmer right now.
Are you watching a tease for a story there about to do on -- -- -- back and know and they start talking about it and then lo and behold.
Three hours later he has a piece attacking fox news's coverage of fast and furious in another case we have the head of the public information office of the Department of Justice.
Emailing to media matters and saying in effect hey you should do a story on this low and behold within three hours.
Out came a story on this is this -- -- -- -- woman -- that's exactly right all right this is woman so she's the point person.
For now and and again we can't say that that attorney general holder knew about this this is pretty low level stuff he might not known about it.
But this woman who represents holder she's holders voice to the public she.
Has an inappropriate.
Relationship with media matters -- cost.
It's orchestrating coverage.
Here's what we're doing here's our side of the story it's.
Trying to -- and regulate propaganda from their side out writes it's colluding.
It is getting together with media matters which is -- tax example left wing political organization.
To create so called news would not exist otherwise and by the way I believe Eric Holder is aware of this because he personally confronted Neil -- one of my reporters.
Wagged his finger in his face and scolded him for the daily -- coverage of fast and furious I think he's very aware of his press coverage.
And I think that she is doing this at his direction I think that's just your opinion media you -- and not my opinion that he's gold -- one of I don't know two is figure linking -- -- I just real fast the IRS's oversight if they wanted to pull a tax exempt status has to go through the IRS correct.
Yes they could be spurred into that by congress and tax exempt organizations are not supposed to be engaging in political conduct -- is partisan political conduct -- thanks.
