Media Matters, the Soros-funded Obama administration propaganda arm, claims that its prime mission is to correct “conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.” Presumably as part of its self-righteous campaign against conservative misinformation, Media Matters decided to team up with the anti-Semitic, anti-American news outlet Al Jazeera, a corrupt media outfit owned and financed by an authoritarian Arab regime that forbids freedom of the press in its own country. Then again, intellectual honesty and truly unbiased journalistic professionalism were never part of Media Matters’ mission statement.
Al Jazeera has descended to such low depths that a critic from the Arab media had this to say about it:
Al-Jazeera’s problem is not its political stance. It is entitled to that. Its problem is that it has dealt a blow to every genuine attempt to build strong and reasonably independent Arab media. The channel will allow no discussion of what has become of it, and has taken us back to the days of the ‘no voice rises above the sound of the battle’ media. It casts aspersions on the motives of anyone one who criticizes it, defends fatal mistakes with feigned naivete, and at the same time refuses to concede that its ‘logical justification’ for what is happening today is: “we are implementing the policy of our funder, period.”
Media Matters was founded with the help of another Soros-sponsored enterprise, the Center for American Progress, the radical brain of the Democratic Party. Media Matters itself couldn’t care less about upholding professional standards in journalism. Its affinity with Al Jazeera has nothing to do with a shared commitment to journalistic integrity. Rather, it shares a common enemy with Al Jazeera: Fox News.
Some of Al Jazeera’s most severe critics in the U.S. media just happen to be Fox News commentators such as Bill O’Reilly, who reports periodically on its blatantly biased anti-American, anti-Israel coverage. Media Matters’ founder and head honcho, David Brock, hates Fox News so much for its rejection of left-wing orthodoxy that he decided to use Media Matters’ resources to launch what he called an all-out campaign of “guerrilla warfare and sabotage” aimed at the Fox News Channel. Thus, it is no wonder that the two organizations, Media Matters and Al Jazeera, have formed a mutual admiration society. After all, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Media Matters Action Network senior foreign policy fellow MJ Rosenberg has a profile on Al Jazeera’s website, where his articles attacking Israel and the United States regularly appear. As reported by the Daily Caller, Rosenberg represented Media Matters at the first Al Jazeera “Unplugged” forum on social media in Doha, Qatar in May 2010. At the forum, he praised Al Jazeera as a “mainstream network” and “factual” while attacking Fox News as a “very, very dangerous force in the United States.” For good measure, Rosenberg also charged that Al Jazeera “was bombed by orders of the United States government.”
