They do this over in state-run media loving China, don’t they?
Via the Daily Caller:
Internal Department of Justice emails obtained by The Daily Caller show Attorney General Eric Holder’s communications staff has collaborated with the left-wing advocacy group Media Matters for America in an attempt to quell news stories about scandals plaguing Holder and America’s top law enforcement agency.
Dozens of pages of emails between DOJ Office of Public Affairs Director Tracy Schmaler and Media Matters staffers show Schmaler, Holder’s top press defender, working with Media Matters to attack reporters covering DOJ scandals. TheDC obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
Emails sent in September and November 2010 show Schmaler working with Media Matters staffer Jeremy Holden on attacking news coverage of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation scandal.
Holden attacked former DOJ Civil Rights Division attorneys J. Christian Adams and Hans von Spakovsky on Sept. 20, 2010 for what he called an attempt “to reignite the phony New Black Panther Party scandal.”
This story should be a bombshell to the American people, but let’s see how the Obama-friendly media spins it. The reason any government official coordinating with the media is big news is because this is what they do in Communist countries. It’s propoganda.
The fact that they coordinated with Media Matters is even more troublesome, because in another Daily Caller investigation, the group had bragged about writing the ‘prime time’ news for other media outlets.
Coordinated, undeniable, media bias.
