Over the past three weeks the network has run dozens of segments attacking Media Matters — on Fox “news” and opinion shows, on the Fox Business Network, and as the top three simultaneous lead stories on its website, Fox Nation. They have repeatedly encouraged viewers to file complaints with the IRS, even providing a direct link to a pre-filled form on their website.

This attack is nothing more than an attempt by Fox News to silence a vocal critic. Because they’re nervous about how we’re exposing what they truly are.

We will continue working every day to make sure America’s political dialogue is based in fact.

Olbermann’s MSNBC Exit Was Weeks in the Making

NY Times January 22, 2011, 2:48 pm

By BILL CARTER

On Thursday, NBC’s news division staged an elaborate presentation for advertisers, seeking to sell commercial time in NBC’s news programs over the next year. All the members of MSNBC’s prime-time lineup spoke at the lunch with one exception: Keith Olbermann, the network’s biggest star.

For the last several weeks, Mr. Olbermann and the network have been in negotiations to end his successful run on MSNBC, according to executives involved in the talks who requested anonymity because the talks were confidential. The deal was completed on Friday, and Mr. Olbermann made the announcement on his final “Countdown” hours later.

And this from the Ass Press

Knowing that the corporate media has absolutely no compunctions, about spinning the truth, the connection concerning the merger of Comcast and NBC can’t be ignored, especially when their denial began before the fact. The local paper in this area, I’ll name it “The Statesman Journal”, consists mostly of articles from the Associated Press, which in my opinion puts it in the catagory of toilet paper. Anyways, it is pretty obvious that Olbermann’s story will never see the light of day in the corporate media.

Mad as hell…

Republican Caller Tells Limbaugh: “You’re A Brainwashed Nazi” (AUDIO)

Huffington Post- Jason Linkins

Media Monitor Cathy Talbot tipped us off to an on-air smackdown that transpired today between Rush Limbaugh and one of his callers, who criticized the talk radio host for hurting the Republican party’s fortunes and supporting the practice of torture. The caller, Charles, identified himself as a Republican and a veteran, who “really didn’t want to see Obama get in office.” From there, he let loose, especially on the torture issue, telling Limbaugh, “We’re not supposed to be torturing these people. This is not Nazi Germany, Red China, or North Korea.” He then added, “I hate to say it…but I think you’re a brainwashed Nazi.”

This did not go over well, at all! Limbaugh shot back with a brainwashing accusation of his own, and blamed Charles and people like him for Obama winning the election. “I didn’t vote for him,” Charles protested, “I voted for McCain. I voted Republican.” No matter. Rush signed off by saying, “Charles, Barack Obama is president of the United States today because of stupid, ignorant people who think like you do. You pose — you and your ignorance are the most expensive commodity this country has.”

Media Matters has the audio, so, judge for yourself:
