The attacks on Media Matters by Fox are completely hypocritical. Steve Doocy brings Jordan Sekulow (introduced as the director of the American Center for Law and Justice) on the air to
lie explain that 503(c) nonprofits “can’t be partisan,” can’t be an “arm of the Democrat [sic] party” and are violating the law by doing so. Of course, they aren’t an arm of the Democratic party and (setting aside the irony of Fox calling another group a political actor) Mr. Sekulow has often called himself partisan- even though his group is also a 503(c). Fox continues to lie about Media Matters and rabble rouse a phony outrage over it’s nonprofit status, while ignoring a myriad of groups that are exactly the same, but conservative.
