Juan Williams: Media Matters Is Trying to Ruin People's Lives
According to Fox News Insider:
"Brian Kilmeade provides more details about how Media Matters is using taxpayer dollars to launch a war on Fox News. The "war" is being led by the web site's founder David Brock.
Ari Rabin-Havt, the Executive Vice President of Media Matters, has spoken out about the group's tactics and their attempts to investigate Fox News employees, saying, "We made a list of every single person who works for Fox and tried to figure out who might be disgruntled and why, and we went out to try to meet them."
Fox News Contributor Juan Williams weighed in on this campaign saying, "They used to monitor the media and point out things that were wrong, false, inappropriate, which is fine, but what you are hearing from Ari Rabin-Havt is that really now they're involved in opposition research. They are digging up dirt on people, they're trying to ruin people's lives and reputation because they disagree with their politics. And, in specific here, what they disagree with is conservative politics and they really don't like Fox News, so they're going after everybody associated with Fox News including the likes of me."
Williams goes onto say that if you vary from some sort of liberal orthodoxy, you'll be in Media Matters' cross-hairs and they'll attack with the intention of ruining your personal life and your business."
