Hillary Clinton Claims She Helped Start Media Matters

I am going to high light a couple of NewsBusters articles because they put this together so nicely and have links to the audio of Hillary Clinton claiming she helped start Media Matters, the group that recently used lies and distortions to create a false story against Rush Limbaugh.

The lie, by Media Matters, started here, (whole transcript provided) was quickly debunked by people who bothered to read the whole transcript. Democratic politicians embarrassed themselves once again by jumping on the lie without bothering to verify the context and we provide a soldiers reaction to Harry Reid and those other Democratic politicians in our most recent post here.

Now we are caught up, lets take a look at the NewsBusters information on Media Matters and Hillary Clinton.

In the end, that's going to be hard to do, for on August 4, while speaking at the YearlyKos convention in Chicago, the junior senator from New York boasted of "institutions that I helped to start and support like Media Matters and Center for American Progress."

Our friend Mike Church has been kind enough to provide the following audio of this segment of her speech that day (partial transcript to follow). Those interested can also view the video available here (relevant section at 2:20):

We are certainly better prepared and more focused on, you know, taking our arguments, and making them effective, and disseminating them widely, and really putting together a network, uh, in the blogosphere, in a lot of the new progressive infrastructure, institutions that I helped to start and support like Media Matters and Center for American Progress.

Definitely read it all to get the context.

(Here is the video where Hillary admits to her involvement with Media Matters. As NewsBusters points out above, it is at 2:20 into the video)

NewsBusters has another related piece, one about the media backing away from the Media Matters lies:

Regardless of the reason, there's been a peculiar silence regarding Reid's statements Monday, and, although the leftwing organization is about to run a rather disgraceful ad denouncing Limbaugh, most media outlets appear to be running away from this story as fast as they can.

Read all of that also.

I am not surprised in the least that Hillary Clinton has ties to Media Matters.

This also brings me back to my original point that I made yesterday about the reason for this whole false story trying to distract from the negative fallout that caused the Democrats.

By the way, just to show the far left and Democratic politicians that their distortions will not distract us as they wish it would, I am showing ALL previous posts about the MoveOn debacle they are trying so hard to hide from by creating this false smear job and false controversy regarding Rush.

You cannot hide, you cannot run, you cannot distract us from making sure everyone knows who did vote to condemn and more importantly who did not stand by our General and our troops in a time of war and would not condemn the group for attacking General Petraeus.

This will follow you into 2008 and myself and dozens and dozens of others will see to it that you are not allowed to hide from this.

Michelle Malkin calls this pathetic attempt to distract, "Bottom-of-the-barrel desperation.".

I must agree.

I fully expect to see far more attempts to distract and distort from the left's and Hillary's bull dogs, Media Matters.

Hillary can raise as much money as she wants, that will not negate her ties to crooks like Hsu, her history or her ties with liars like Media Matters.

It will come back to bite her in the ass.
