Media Matters of America
Clearing House for Left Wing Propaganda
The stated purpose of Media Matters was to combat what they call 'conservative misinformation' they define conservative misinformation as news or commentary presented in the media that is not accurate, reliable, or credible and that forwards the conservative agenda.
For decades the Left had monopolized Mass Media. Broadcasting and print media with rare exceptions were geared toward the destabilization of Civil Liberties and advancement of the progressive left wing authoritarianism. The perpetuation of the Lefts False Narrative was challenged by the arrival of a media source that challenged their distortions.
Americans hold the media in very low esteem, they have very little confidence in the main stream media to report ANYTHING fairly. In a 2011 Gallup poll a 60% majority reported a perception of media bias, with 47% saying that it was too liberal. Continually year after year since 2002 more Americans polled believe that the media shows brazen liberal left wing bias. 
The majority of America had been made to see through the facade.
The American Society of Newspaper Editors conducted a survey in 1997 to ascertain the political persuasions of media contributors, 61% of reporters stated that they were members of, or sympathized with the Democratic Party. While 15% chose the Republican Party. Bear in mind that these are 'educated' people who have been thoroughly indoctrinated by left wing academia. Presently with the rise of Fox News- which tends to slant towards the right - those numbers would probably differ somewhat.
The Daily Caller in 2012 published an expose that revealed the extent to which MMA had become engaged in dictating the content of media reports. Newspapers such as the NY Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times all took dictation from Media Matters. The Caller reported that by 2008, "Media Matters staff had the direct line of MSNBC president Phil Griffin, and used it. Griffin took their calls [and orders]'

What they failed to acknowledge or even consider was the fact that with extremely rare exception - the hosts were generally opinionated Liberals and leftists whose sole purpose for presenting Right wing advocates was to lambaste and attack their beliefs, some of the hosts were well known for what could be described as 'Ambush - Journalism' . Dan Rather, a disgraced so-called journalist was one of these 'un-biased hosts'.
Who is Behind Media Matters
George Soros was one of those financiers.George Soros, as well as Media Matters for America, for years denied that Soros was the controlling force behind the organization. Media Matters, vigorously denied over the years conservative accusations of being funded by the buffoonish billionaire and political activist. However in 2010 Soros peeked out of from behind the veil and publicly dumped One Million dollars directly into their laps.
York also suggested that the donors for MMfA suggested a strong left wing bias and an agenda that went beyond media criticism. 
'donors read like a Who's Who of those who have financed the new, activist Left. Besides Buell and Hindery, donors to Media Matters include Peter Lewis, chairman of Progressive Corp., who has contributed more than $7 million to the 527s in partnership with his friend, the financier George Soros.' - Byron York
War on Fox News
Since its inception Media Matters for America has incessantly hounded and scrutinized Fox News. Its hoard of paid staffers scrutinizes every aspect of the network. Its corporate officers, hosts, guests, curriculum, financial dealings and so forth. Should Fox fail to dot an i or cross a T Media Matters mongrels salivatiuosly await the opportunity to pounce, and pounce they do. No other mainstream media outlet has ever had to endure the relentless assaults and vindictive attacks endured by Fox.
Media Matters Executive Vice President Angelo Carusone declared in December 2013 The war on Fox is over...And it's not just that it's over, but it was very successful. To a large extent, we won. However what Carusone failed to acknowledge is that Fox News ratings are very strong, in fact stronger than its two primary rivals combined.
As recently as last month, a poll showed that Fox News is the most trusted source of information about the most important issue in America today: ObamaCare. Fox News beat "friends and family," NPR, President Obama, and every rival news network. As recently as last month, Fox News absolutely crushed CNN and MSNBC in the ratings. In both total viewers and the all-important 25-54 age demo, Fox News beat both of them combined. Moreover, out of over 100 channels, Fox News is #2 in all of cable..... Fox News isn't just dominant; it's competition is in deep, deep water and either drowning or barely treading water.If that's a victory for Media Matters, I'd love to know what defeat looks like.' -John Nolte - breitbart.com 
'According to its strategic plan for the next three years, a copy of which was provided to The Huffington Post, Media Matters envisions shifting its focus to new, increasingly influential targets, including Spanish-language media, social media streams, alternative online outlets and morning and entertainment sources. It will enhance its state media and issue-based monitoring, as well as continue its focus on right-wing radio and legacy outlets.' 
Juan Williams has been a contributor to many varied Media Outlets, including Fortune, Ebony magazine, The New Republic, The Atlantic Monthly, TIME , Gentlemens Quarterly and appears on a number of television programs - Nightline, The Oprah Winfrey Show and others. He is a man with a mind of his own, indebted to neither Right nor Left. He is however a journalist, not a propagandist unlike many of his colleagues.
Williams was fired by NPR News following politically incorrect comments he made on the Fox News The O'Reilly Factor
'Look, Bill, I'm not a bigot. You know the kind of books I've written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous. ..... Christians shouldn't be blamed for Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.'
Williams in 2011 spoke out on Media Matters attacks on Fox - '...They are digging up dirt on people. They are trying to ruin peoples lives and reputation because they disagree with their politics. And, in specific here, what they disagree with is conservative politics and they really dont like Fox News. So they are going after everybody associated with Fox News including the likes of me...'
