Media Matters Slams Manzi

Please have a look at the report Media Matters issued slamming our very own Todd Manzi’s appearance on Bill O’Reilly’s show. (Follow the link for a video clip, too.) Good work, Todd! Here’s a sampling:

O’Reilly, right-wing writers teamed up to bash "smear merchants" at Media Matters

In a falsehood-laden segment on the October 25 edition of Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor in which Media Matters for America was a focus of the attack, Bill O’Reilly hosted two right-wing commentators — one of whom is known for launching an ill-fated T-shirt venture protesting an effort to get women admitted to the Augusta National Golf Club, a venture that reportedly left him "broke." The commentators, columnist Jacob Laksin and Human Events contributor Todd Manzi, joined O’Reilly in baselessly accusing Media Matters of "smear[ing]" conservatives. No contrary perspective about Media Matters was provided; O’Reilly has repeatedly refused Media Matters president and CEO David Brock’s request to appear on The O’Reilly Factor.
