We Don't Have John McCain to Kick Around Any More
A little after 1 p.m. on Sept. 29, 2009, Karl Frisch emailed a memo to his bosses, Media Matters for America founder David Brock and president Eric Burns. In the first few lines, Frisch explained why Media Matters should launch a “Fox Fund” whose mission would be to attack the Fox News Channel.So if you've ever wondered how these Media Matters campaigns to discredit and embarrass FoxNews work?
“Simply put,” Frisch wrote, “the progressive movement is in need of an enemy. George W. Bush is gone. We really don’t have John McCain to kick around any more. Filling the lack of leadership on the right, Fox News has emerged as the central enemy and antagonist of the Obama administration, our Congressional majorities and the progressive movement as a whole.”
“We must take Fox News head-on in a well funded, presidential-style campaign to discredit and embarrass the network, making it illegitimate in the eyes of news consumers.”
What Frisch proceeded to suggest, however, went well beyond what legitimate presidential campaigns attempt. “We should hire private investigators to look into the personal lives of Fox News anchors, hosts, reporters, prominent contributors, senior network and corporate staff,” he wrote.
Well first you send a legion of spam filter evading false flag trolls over to FoxNews to pretend to be bitter racist right wing gun clingers with orders to find a way to get the N words past the filters. Then you take a screen shot and email it to Charles Johnson who will play the role of shocked moral authority figure. Even though he knows exactly what a false flag troll is and how to use it.
