Anti-Christian Media Matters Agenda Exposed

CBS News is a Little Slow Getting this Story Out
WASHINGTON -- An influential organisation with ties to the Government came under fire latterly for attacking Christian news outlet centres.
Now, CBN Reports has got a document showing that the terribly foundation of the group known as Media Matters for America is founded on anti-Christian bias.
Faith Groups in Crosshairs
Media Matters is a non-profit liberal watchdog group that has the ear of not only the mainstream media, but also the Obama administration.
As a part of its method, Media Matters frequently targets Christian affiliations in an attempt to combat what it views as pro-Christian "bias in reports reporting and research by the North American media."
"It is common for reports and commentary by the press to present perspectives that tend to very promote...a conservative, Christian-influenced ideology," the group said in its application for non-profit status with the IRS.
Vince Coglianese, a journalist with The Dailer Caller, has investigated the Media Matters ' attacks on Christian affiliations.
"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 revealed.
"Interestingly, though, in their public mission statement Media Matters makes no mention of the incontrovertible fact that it proposes to target the Christian ideology," Coglianese noted.
Media Matters didn't make a response to CBN Reports ' requests for comment on this story or the document.
David Brog, manager of Christians United for Israel, believes the Media Matters ' targeting of Christians is attached to its anti-Israel views.
"They wish to take on what they see as a Christian-influenced media and Christian-influenced policy, and no better starting point than with the issue of Israel and with attacking U.S. Support of Israel," Brog told CBN News.
'Israel Firsters '
Until recently, the man at the center of Media Matters ' anti-Israel campaigns was M.J. Rosenberg.
Rosenberg served as the group's senior foreign policy fellow before stepping apart among squabble over his anti-Israel scribblings, including heated feedback from well known Left wingers like lawyer Alan Dershowitz.
Rosenberg typically uses the label, "Israel Firsters," implying that American fans put the interests of Israel above the U. S. . It's a charge typically manufactured by Neo-Nazis and anti-Semitic groups.
"We don't see any censure of his hate language coming from Media Matters, and we've yet to notice any movement in editorial policies," Brog declared. "For all we all know, they have said goodbye to the man but not the message."
"I call upon all my mates on the left who love Israel, who hate anti-Semitism, to speak up," he scolded. "Your silence is deafening. You're letting your compatriots get away with the vilest of accusations."
Meanwhile, Media Matters ' new Middle East expert, Walid Zafar, appears to be following in Rosenberg's footsteps.
He latterly blasted DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz for pulling out of a fundraiser hosted by an American Muslim whose name is on the federal terrorist watch list.
