The Soros-Media Matters-White House Connection

At SooperMexican.

Media Matters’ founder David Brock, noted for his erratic and paranoid behavior, also heads SuperPAC American Bridge, which received a million dollar contribution from George Soros, and both organizations orchestrate attacks on religion while decrying conservatives in popular media.

So why are there howls in the media about the influence of contributors on the right, such as the Koch brothers, but not those on the left, when there appears to be collusion to manipulate news media, lie to the public, and subvert honest political debate?

Liberal activists tied to these subversive shadowy campaigns target individual bloggers, and may even be abusing social media to completely shut down accounts that dare to express a conservative opinion....

All the while, Obama’s communications head David Axelrod whines about SuperPACs destroying America:

Obama campaign senior strategist David Axelrod said Thursday that free-spending super PACs were hurting the fabric of democracy — and that President Obama’s administration would move to reform the campaign finance system in a possible second term.

If we had any kind of responsible mainstream press with a twinge of integrity, they would demand answers from the Obama re-election campaign. But there isn’t.

As Sheldon Adelson said: George Soros has been doing this for ten years. Why the media hubbub when Adelson chooses to donate to a PAC?

And his PAC isn't creating sockpuppet accounts to silence dissent.
