Media Matters Puts Entire Staff On Mission To “Bring Down Bill O’Reilly”….

Media Matters employs 45 paid researchers who have a very specific goal. They advocate for far-left agendas’, create the scripted talking points for CNN, MSNBC and the alphabets, and they are mission destined to destroy Fox News.

Regarding their mission to “destroy Fox News”, they have now put their best men, top men, ALL MEN, every-single-researcher in the entire organization, on a single mission to eliminate FOX’s Bill O’Reilly.

As highlighted by politico:

David Brock has spent more than a decade trying to bring down Bill O’Reilly.

When Brock launched Media Matters For America in 2004, the liberal watchdog gave O’Reilly its “Misinformer of the Year” award. Six years later, it made Fox News its chief preoccupation, launching what Brock described as an all-out campaign of “guerrilla warfare and sabotage” against the network.

So it should surprise no one that, in the wake of revelations about O’Reilly’s dubious Falklands war claims, Media Matters is on an all-out offensive.

bill-oreilly ego“It’s all hands on deck,” Brock told the On Media blog on Thursday. “This is a moving target. We’re not done.”

Media Matters, which is based in Washington, employs roughly 45 researchers. According to Bradley Beychok, the group’s president, all of these researchers have been tasked with helping the effort to expose past instances in which O’Reilly lied about his personal experiences. Beychok runs the day-to-day operations, but Brock said he checks in “multiple times a day” to weigh in and give advice.

“We start our day at 5 a.m. and go ’til midnight,” Beychok said. “This guy has had a long journalism career, so there’s a lot of material. Once we’ve gone through all that material, we’ll decide how to proceed. But we don’t plan to back up one inch at this moment.”

[…] Brock and Beychok acknowledge that the accusations have yet to do any real damage to O’Reilly — his ratings are up significantly this week — but they see this as early days. (read more)

      financier George Soros—a founding and continuing member of the Alliance—announced in 2010 that he was donating $1 million to MMfA. Soros said: “Despite repeated assertions to the contrary by various Fox News commentators, I have not to date been a funder of Media Matters.” Soros said his concern over “recent evidence suggesting that the incendiary rhetoric of Fox News hosts may incite violence” had moved him to donate to MMfA, which thanked Soros for announcing his donation “quickly and transparently”.

              • Isn’t this criminal? I mean they have stated they are looking to “bring him down”. Through what means? Whatever they can find whether it is the truth or not? It would seem if they have to make something up, it is not above them to do such as that. Isn’t the very article announcing their plans slanderous?

                I’ve noticed that BOR’s shows…..He is suffering from the attacks. He is getting more obnoxious to his guests, refusing to allow them to answer his questions and talking over them. His ratings might be up at the moment but I don’t believe that will last if this continues. His stress is beginning to show.

                Am I being naïve or is it okay to announce publicly that you have 49 people working on finding slanderous information? Sounds like threats to me.

          You are correct. Liberals are simply marinated in fear sauce, and it is because they know, deep down, that their worldview is not consistent. All they are is a bunch of divergent whims held together by fear, and that motivates them to lash out, in hate, at anyone who threatens their empire of glass. Spiritually, they are simply invertebrates in the hands of demons.

    I, too, seldom watch O’Reilly,..perhaps a segment here and there, but certainly never for the whole hour. What’s interesting here is that he is a classic liberal, and open-minded to the point of annoyance…much more than his lefty critics who are as indoctrinated as their cousins (or maybe comrades) who follow communism.

    All this is a lesson to conservatives. NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES lie or exaggerate your exploits. Keep a check on your lip at all times so as to not give the enemy leftys one whit of ammunition. True, they will make it up if they have to. But if you have truth on your side, you can make them eat crow.

    And, yes, Stella, this has the hand of Soros all over it.

    I have never been satisfied with the outcome of the allegation of sexual harassment leveled at BOR. It seems he denied the allegations, but could not produce enough evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that his producer was making false allegations. Fox paid her a huge settlement which never looks good. That said, he has tried to kiss both Obama cheeks every which way he could for six years in the hopes of getting a presidential interview. This tells me all I have ever needed to know about him. If he is a liar, I say get him off the the network and bring back some respect to Fox for a show of integrity. If he is innocent of these allegations of lying and embellishing the truth, I hope he fights it tooth and nail and prevails. It’s about the truth, not the cult of personality.

      I plum forgot about that! I dunno–if he did do that, he would have to be SUPER slick! You can usually detect at least SOME degree of flirtatiousness in the eyes of perpetual harassers, even on-camera. That, or else kind of a chauvinistic/ demeaning bent. To me, he seems like he’s just Equal Opportunity Obnoxious (but then again, I can’t decide what to believe about Cosby either).

      Still prefer him over the MSNBC/ CNN types though…….either way. He’s funny cuz he KNOWS he’s incredibly egoistic. Obama doesn’t–he just thinks he’s GREAT, and gets furious that we’re all too blind to see it. Many other progs are the same.

    • wws says:

      You’ve got the legal standard of proof backwards. It is always the burden of the accuser to prove that the incidents happened as claimed; our system always gives the accused the benefit of the doubt. Also, it is logically impossible to “prove” a negative; for instance, you can’t prove that you didn’t have a secret meeting with space aliens last week. If you say that no one saw that happen, the accuser can just say that just proves how good the aliens cloaking technology was. You can’t prove that it didn’t happen.

      So it was not on BOR to prove that the allegations were false; and negotiating the end of a legal claim with a large payout is the standard corporate move in these cases. I doubt O’Reilly chose that, and figure the accountants did, since that’s how the accountants limit cost and exposure to risk.

      Now embellishing the truth? BOR has ALWAYS embellished the truth, that’s his act. If you hate him for it, then don’t watch him, but don’t act all surprised to find out that’s what his audience loves about him.

        My point was, if you are a high profile member of the media then anything that you have ever reported on is open game for the highest scrutiny possible. For people of all stripes.

        And if O’Reilly does come out of this situation clean, then that is fine by me. I am not an O’Reilly fan nor an O’Reilly basher. I could take him or leave him, to be honest with you. He is not a genuine conservative in my book so I do not really care what happens to him.
