When Rush Limbaugh was working to get partial ownership of an NFL team, Media Matters was busily spreading lies about a fake quote reportedly by Limbaugh. Of course, Media Matters scrubbed its site of the fake quotes, without issuing any sort of apology, then lied again by claiming they never posted the quotes.
Media Matters smeared Bill O’Reilly and then lied about it on the Today Show. It is very foolish of them to actually claim to have put out the full audio and full transcript when they’re both quite available. And, as Johnny Dollar said, when your “full transcript” begins with “Now, how do we get to this point,” your “full transcript” is a lie. The context is intentionally omitted because the context doesn’t fit Media Matters’ dishonest left-wing agenda.
His left-wing character assassination factory, Media Matters for America, has been caught lying once again. Media Matters uses deception and counts on you not making the effort to read the full quotations it truncates.
The new blog post, Media conservatives falsely claim Obama’s Supreme Court criticism was “unprecedented” is a distortion from start to finish. (Things have a habit of disappearing on the Web so here is a PDF copy of the blog post preserved for posterity.)
In it Media Matters fails to demonstrate its hypothesis, which is that critics of President Obama are incorrect when they say Obama’s calling out of the Supreme Court by name and criticism of it during a State of the Union address was unprecedented.
In fact the evidence that Media Matters presents—past State of the Union addresses from previous presidents—only demonstrates the opposite, namely, that Obama’s actions are unprecedented.

The left-wing organization Media Matters (MMFA) appears to have been caught red-handed in an ugly and false smear attack against Cliff Kincaid, editor of Accuracy in Media (AIM) and president of America’s Survival, Inc. In an August 19, 2005, item entitled, “AIM’s Kincaid posted ‘letter’ from Afghan ambassador thanking him for petition to extradite Newsweek’s Isikoff,” Media Matters clearly implies that Kincaid fabricated a letter from an Afghan ambassador. However, every indication reveals that Kincaid did no such thing.

Media Matters Lies About Media Coverage of Sarah Palin North Korea Slip
A full take-down of Media Matters over it’s lies about Palin’s gaffe and the media response.
I could bring up a hundred more obvious Media Matters lies, smears, distortions attacking the right. They’re all over the place. And Media Matters continues to add to the total number of lies, smears, distortions of the right every week. It’s what Media Matters does.
So, if you want to bring an accusation about someone on the right, be forewarned sourcing Media Matters is almost as good as saying “they” because we all know how trustworthy the proverbial “they” are.
