    Media Matters memo called for hiring private investigators ‘to look into the personal lives’ of Fox employees

    By Tucker Carlson Published: 10:51 PM 02/13/2012 | Updated: 10:58 PM 02/13/2012

    A little after 1 p.m. on Sept. 29, 2009, Karl Frisch emailed a memo to his bosses, Media Matters for America founder David Brock and president Eric Burns. In the first few lines, Frisch explained why Media Matters should launch a “Fox Fund” whose mission would be to attack the Fox News Channel.

    “Simply put,” Frisch wrote, “the progressive movement is in need of an enemy. George W. Bush is gone. We really don’t have John McCain to kick around any more. Filling the lack of leadership on the right, Fox News has emerged as the central enemy and antagonist of the Obama administration, our Congressional majorities and the progressive movement as a whole.”

    “We must take Fox News head-on in a well funded, presidential-style campaign to discredit and embarrass the network, making it illegitimate in the eyes of news consumers.”

    What Frisch proceeded to suggest, however, went well beyond what legitimate presidential campaigns attempt. “We should hire private investigators to look into the personal lives of Fox News anchors, hosts, reporters, prominent contributors, senior network and corporate staff,” he wrote.

    After that, Frisch argued, should come the legal assault: “We should look into contracting with a major law firm to study any available legal actions that can be taken against Fox News, from a class action law suit to defamation claims for those wronged by the network. I imagine this would be difficult but the right law firm is bound to find some legal ground for us to take action against the network.”

    Frisch went on to call for “an elaborate shareholder campaign” against News Corporation, the parent company of Fox News: “This can take many forms, from a front group of shareholders, to passing resolutions at shareholder meetings or massive demonstrations are [sic] shareholder meetings.”

    Other suggestions entailed putting a mole into Fox, hiring "a team of trackers to stake out private and public events with Fox News anchors, hosts, reporters, prominent contributors and senior network/corporate staff," “detailed opposition research” on the network’s staff and executives, attacks against Fox News employees on Facebook and other social media, mailing anti-Fox News literature to their homes and placing “yard signs and outdoor advertising in their neighborhoods.”

    This is criminal conduct. Conspiracy, industrial espionage, harrassment, blackmail... If a conservative group had done this, the press would be exploding with outrage over the attacks on their fellow journalists. The silence from the media speaks volumes.

    saw this yesterday...while it doesn't appear that they actually DID anything, it still stinks to high heaven.

    If Frisch is still employed there, they have some 'splainin' to do.

    Wait! Let's not over react. I'm sure AD will be here in a moment to "clarify" and defend the non-existent left wing media and the mere hijinks surrounding this issue. "No harm was intended, it was mere venting. Nothing to see here folks,,."

    Um, Media Matters is another arm funded by Soros. And to think the reclusive Koch brothers are the bogeymen.

    What bothers me the most is the fact that a representative from the White House supposedly meets with representatives from Media Matters every Tuesday (quoted on the various Fox News shows this evening). The alleged collusion with the White House is more than disturbing but not surprising.

    It sounds like Media Matters might have bitten off a bit more than they can chew. Some congressmen are now calling for an examination of their 501c status as a non-profit organization, supposedly an "educational" organization.

    They've provided quite an education. They've demonstrated that the left knows no limits.
