When David Brock applied for tax-exempt status for Media Matters for America, he told the IRS exactly who his group would be fighting against: businesses, wealthy Americans and conservative Christians.
“Media Matters for America (MMA) believes that news reporting and analysis by the American media, with its eye on profit margin and preservation of the status quo, has become biased,” read the group’s application, obtained by The Daily Caller, “It is common for news and commentary by the press to present viewpoints that tend to overly promote corporate interests, the rights of the wealthy, and a conservative, Christian-influenced ideology.”
Treasury Department documents — 88 pages that The Daily Caller obtained through a public records request to the IRS — reveal for the first time how the organization described its mission while applying for coveted 501(c)(3) non-profit status.” Read more: here
To receive “tax exempt status”, a group or business is to be ‘unbiased’ in it’s reporting, financial donations and support. Media Matters is a far Left-wing hit web site, which they’ve clearly admitted. They’ve expressed there angst, liberal term for ‘hatred’, against all things capitalist (“corporate interest”), socialist ‘class warfare’ (rights of the wealthy), “conservatives” and Christians”. The very foundation of the United States of America.
Media Matters (MMA) to this day, continues to tout that they’re not biased nor Left leaning, when asked by friends and ‘foes’ in the media . . . and no doubt, the IRS. This is the same MMA which boast about the personal vendetta (war) against Fox News Chanel and Rush Limbaugh. What they present on their website, easily falls into the category of provable lies and intentional distortions of facts and comments by conservatives.
At the very least, they should lose all tax exempt status and pay their “fair share” like the rest of ‘conservatives’ (goodness knows, Liberals are always scheming on ways out of paying taxes,Warren Buffett’s ‘war’ against the IRS being current example numero uno. After all, being faithful Obamaites and worshiping of all thing in the Liberal Church of Propaganda, they should be eager to pay more taxes. Right?
