Media matters is a left wing hit squad that tries to suppress conservative speech

Michael Anton:
Over the last three evenings, Americans watched Tucker Carlson refuse to be cowed by the sophisticated, well-funded, coordinated information operation designed to chase him off the air and make him unemployable for life.

One of the points he’s raised, not so much in his own defense, but rather as a counteroffensive against his enemies, is that Media Matters for America (MMfA)—his primary tormenter—enjoys a symbiotic relationship with the corporate Left media (CLM), to whom it can feed propaganda with the assurance that it will be regurgitated verbatim. “Symbiotic” because they need and feed off one another. MMfA lacks a sufficiently large megaphone to broadcast its message. The CLM, by contrast, not only has such a megaphone; fundamentally it is a megaphone. It’s lazy and so relies on others to feed it stories, which MMfA is only too happy to do.

As if to prove Carlson right, the Washington Post on Thursday published an embarrassingly spoon-fed story from (you guessed it) MMfA. It’s a perfect case study in how the CLM spins and misleads without lying and peddles propaganda under the guise of “news.”

The premise of the piece is accurately encapsulated by its title: “Tucker Carlson says he’s the victim of a powerful bully. Meet the 24-year-old who found the tapes.”

See what they did there? The Post deliberately glides right past who and what Carlson actually means by “bully”: MMfA itself, its deep-pocketed donors, its Democratic Party backers and beneficiaries, the rent-a-mobs it can instantly gin up on Twitter and even in person, and of course its media lackeys—emphatically including the Post. Instead, they try to say that Carlson’s “bully” is merely a lone “24-year-old” who “lives in the basement of a D.C. house she rents with five other people, a few cats and a dog named Noodles.”
But is this “24-year-old” acting alone? Of course not. She’s low-paid, grunt labor for the real bully—or better to say, constellation of bullies—out to get Carlson.

Note how the Post doesn’t actually deny this. Rather, they simply give their credulous readers—which is to say, all of them—the misleading impression that this lone Gen Z upstart, all on her own, is taking on a TV titan.

Is anyone dumb enough to believe this? Since it’s safe to assume that world’s richest man is not an idiot, it’s also safe to assume that he had good reason to pay $250 million for the Post. Jeff Bezos is a modern-day P.T. Barnum. He knows there’s a sucker born every minute. He has a name for them: “subscribers.”
Erick Wemple and others at the Washington Post have had it in for Tucker Carlson ever since he challenged their reporting and it looks to me like they jump at any opportunity to attack him or Fox News.  The Post has yet to apologize for all the misleading stories it pushed that supported the Russian Collusion Hoax that was part of a coup attempt by the Clinton Campaign and some of its Deep State backers.

Media Mutters has as its primary mission trying to suppress conservative speech from Rush Limbaugh to Tucker Carlson to Hannity.  They seem especially upset that Fox exposed the Russian collusion story for the hoax it was all along.  It looks like they are angry that the truth has emerged and thwarted their attempt to have the President removed.  The Post also enthusiastic pushed this false narrative.  So instead of burning their sources which provided them false and misleading information, they are attacking those who exposed the fraud.
