Fox's O'Reilly Calls Media Matters A "Hate Group" | Crooks and Liars

Oh dear. Media Matters has apparently done something terrible to annoy Bill O'Reilly and Stuart Varney to the point where they're foaming at the mouth and calling Media Matters a "hate group," a pejorative O'Reilly has used against the organization in the past.

It began gently enough, with them agreeing that Media Matters is really just a "far-left propaganda machine." And then they ramped it up, suggesting that their tax-exempt status should be taken away because...hurt fee-fees.

Fox News has been after Media Matters for years. At one time, they had a page up on their website with a petition inviting viewers to sign to have their tax-exempt status revoked.

Media Matters is the left-side equivalent to the right-wing's Media Research Center. No one is calling for MRC's head on a platter, so what's got Bill-O's panties in a bunch?

Actually tracking how wrong they are and calling them when the try to change their story is something they can't deal with.

and what about the Big Five taking time to cover 200 yahoos in rural Red Oregon the same as a million marchers in Washington, D.C.?

What does that say about media control and the why? Of such obvious control?

tangled web of lies and frothing at the mouth hate could not fit into the space available in my OP.

The one I have in the OP is a whopping big honker of a real projector, though!

Here is a theoretical outer space projector more worthy of Fox in trying times for them like these:
