In yesterday's Whispers column, they twice reference the Capital Research Center without mentioning the financial relationship between the CRC and the paper's owner, Richard Mellon Scaife.
Take a look:
Congressional Research Service employees apparently are as good at research as ACORN workers are at registering voters.And here:
A recent report commissioned by House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich., and House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, D-Mass. -- both longtime ACORN supporters -- is an obvious whitewash.
So says the Capital Research Center, which found that CRS failed to unearth any examples of individuals registered to vote by ACORN who cast fraudulent ballots. In reality, at least two Ohio voters registered by ACORN were convicted of voter fraud -- one each in 2007 and 2009.
George Soros' Media Matters for America, which habitually smears the anti-American leftist billionaire's ideological opponents, has 70 employees, according to a recent report in The New York Observer.I'll let Mediamatters speak on whether they've received direct funding from Soros:
Previous estimates had placed the number of Media Matters workers at between 60 and 100.
The group recently named radio and TV host Glenn Beck as its 2009 Misinformer of the Year -- undoubtedly because Beck last year was a constant irritant to the Obama administration.
While his minions indulge in mischief, Soros wants the International Monetary Fund to become, as the Capital Research Center described it, "a kind of globetrotting Bernie Madoff." Soros wants the IMF to offer poor countries low-interest loans so they can invest in the global warming industry.
In fact, Media Matters has never received funding from progressive philanthropist George Soros.There's more here on any indirect funding.
Bottom line is that they've gone on record stating their funding relationship with Soros (none). Which is much much much more than can be said for Richard Mellon Scaife and the Capital Research Center. Foundations that he controls have given millions to the CRC over the years.
- The Sarah Scaife Foundation gave $225,000 in 2008.
- The Sarah Scaife Foundation gave $250,000 in 2007.
- The Sarah Scaife Foundation gave $250,000 in 2006.
That's a lot of money and a long relationship. And yet none of it is mentioned as Scaife's paper uses "research" from the CRC to make its political points.
The circle-jerk continues.
