CBN News Claims Media Matters Is Anti-Christian
Christian Broadcasting Network News (CBN) reports that Media Matters For America is an anti-Christian organization, claiming “Now, CBN News has obtained a document showing that the very foundation of the group known as Media Matters for America is built on anti-Christian bias.” Oh dear, you’re kidding right?
From CBN’s report:
As part of its strategy, Media Matters frequently targets Christian organizations in an effort to counter what it views as pro-Christian “bias in news reporting and analysis by the American media.”
“It is common for news and commentary by the press to present viewpoints that tend to overly promote…a conservative, Christian-influenced ideology,” the group said in its application for non-profit status with the IRS.
Vince Coglianese, a reporter with The Dailer Caller, has investigated the Media Matters’ attacks on Christian organizations.
“Media Matters, in its application to the IRS-outright, in the very first paragraph-declares it’s going to be an anti-Christian organization,” he said.
“Interestingly, though, in their public mission statement Media Matters makes no mention of the fact that it intends to target the Christian ideology,” Coglianese noted.
Media Matters did not respond to CBN News’ requests for comment on this story or the document.
This whole conspiracy necessitates that Media Matters also be anti-Israel. Because of course, if you don’t put Israel above America, then you’re somehow anti-Israel. Sorry, Jack - I’m an American. I’m pro-America. I’m anti-ANYHING that puts another country above my own. And there is nothing unreasonable about that. It’s what we should be able to expect from any American, isn’t it? I’m an American citizen, after all, not an Israeli citizen and Israel is no more special than any other friend of the United States.
