Spinning Fast and Furious: DOJ Refers Reporter To Media Matters

I guess the wholesale ownership of the MFM by the Obama administration isn't enough to protect them on Fast & Furious, what with that pesky Sharyl Attkisson from CBS nosing around in the story and all.

No, this scandal has such potential for damaging The Once that it can only be handled by another division of Soros, Inc.:

Katie Dixon, a 'confidential assistant' in the Office of Public Affairs at the Department of Justice, reportedly sent an email to Washington Free Beacon writer C.J. Ciaramella that she had been directed to send him a link to Media Matters for America, which holds weekly "strategy calls" with the White House, in response to an inquiry regarding the Operation Fast and Furious scandal.

Read the whole thing over at Breitbart's. And here's C.J. Ciaramella's related WFB article. It explores an allegation contained in Katie Pavlich's new book on Fast and Furious that there was a third F&F gun involved in the murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and that DOJ is covering its existence up.

Two weapons connected to Fast and Furious were discovered at the murder scene of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, who was gunned down in the Southern Arizona desert in 2010 by five criminals armed with AK-47s.

However, Pavlich asserts there was a third gun. The book details three separate pieces of evidence that point to a third weapon being recovered and then covered up by the FBI and the Justice Department.

I'm not sure how serving as a public relations arm of the Obama administration comports with MMFA's tax-exempt status, but I bet the Treasury Department will get right on that.
