“Activists brawl over background checks,” Media Matters whooped in the subhead to its Friday “report” on last week’s Gun Rights Policy Conference in Chicago. The “progressive” propaganda smear machine is elated that “hog-tied” gun owners are in disagreement over the way to respond to background check bills being introduced in several states and kicked into high gear by a handful of billionaires.
As with “gun control” backers Michael Bloomberg and Bill Gates, both of whom employ the finest around-the-clock security money can buy, Media Matters founder David Brock, a former “conservative” described as “viciously mean” in his treatment of employees, was reportedly accompanied by an illegally-armed personal assistant in Washington, D.C.
Media Matters has also been at the center of dispensing disinformation on Operation Fast and Furious, and dismissing investigations into it as “baseless conspiracy theory.” Conspirators would know, as those who collaborated with Eric Holder’s Justice Department to spin that narrative most certainly do. As a side note, the DOJ employee doing much of the communication with Media Matters was Tracy Schmaler, the same department attack flack who dismissed the D.C. bar complaint against her boss as “specious… frivolous [and] desperate.”
