Radio host Mark Levin was on a tear Friday (via Hot Air):
Until listening to Hot Air's replay of Levin's comments, I had never realized how politically active Media Matters really is. Do a search on Hillary Clinton or Mitt Romney on the MM site and you'll see a stunning, one-sided theme that gives every appearance of a Clinton front site.
Here's a quick -- but by no means complete -- gallery of items from the Media Matters site captured in just the last week.
From the looks of things, Hillary's scared to death of Mitt Romney.
So, exactly what are the tax-exemption requirements for 501(c)(3) organizations -- as Media Matters claims it is? The IRS describes them this way:
For a 501(c)(3) organization, the IRS neatly defines "Political Campaign Activity."
|Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity. Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise tax... voter education or registration activities with evidence of bias that: (a) would favor one candidate over another; (b) oppose a candidate in some manner; or (c) have the effect of favoring a candidate or group of candidates, will constitute prohibited participation or intervention.|
Check and mate, morons.
Please go to the IRS site and do what I did: report Media Matters' utterly partisan activities as suspected tax fraud. You may be entitled to a reward for the report.
It's high time that taxpayers stopped subsidizing a political action committee for Hillary Clinton.
