MSNBC and Media Matters Anti-Limbaugh Campaign Exposed

The Other McCain does a fantastic job of putting together what was an organized effort by NBC news and Media Matters to silence the voice of Rush Limbaugh…


E-Mails Expose MSNBC Host’s Involvement in #StopRush Boycott


MSNBC host Krystal Ball was in close communication with leaders of an online boycott aimed at advertisers on Rush Limbaugh’s popular radio show, e-mails between the boycott leaders indicate.

…Ball, a Democrat who ran for Congress in Virginia two years ago, is a paid MSNBC contributor who was recently announced as one of four co-hosts of a new daily program, The Cycle, on the left-leaning cable news network. It is unclear whether MSNBC executives were aware of the extent of Ball’s involvement in #StopRush, which used the social network in a campaign to drive Limbaugh off the airwaves by threatening boycotts against advertisers on his conservative talk show, the nation’s most popular syndicated radio program.

Professor William Jacobson’s Legal Insurrection blog has described howthe #StopRush effort was evidently coordinated with the tax-exempt non-profit Media Matters for America, apparently using so-called “sockpuppet” accounts in a fake-grassroots ”astroturf” campaign.

    • She sounds like one of those people who were involved in “editgate” at NBC. She could easily fit into either organization – or the KGB.

    • Proving the left never learns from reality. Everone and I do mean everyone who has taken on “the lovable little fuzz ball” has succeeded in doing nothing but driving up his listeners and therefore his “confiscatory” ad fees.

      Someone once said about fighting a newspaper, “don’t fight someone who buys ink by the barrel” It might also be said don’t fight someone with a 600 station bullhorn.

      Like I said, “Liberals never learn”

    • Name Nancy
    • Who is Krystal Ball? And where is MSNBC? I think we will AVOID movies, DVDs, TV shows “starring” these elites. We’ll spend our time campaigning for Romney, and for the campaigns of Senators & House candidates who can lead America out of this quicksand it finds itself in.

      We can’t continue to enrich anyone who considers the US Constitution to be toilet paper & that includes Horseface Sarah Jessica Parker,Stephen Schwartzman the owner of Hamas Hilton Chain, Peter Lewis of Progressive Insurance, Anna Winatour of Vogue, Susan Saradan, Grayson Carter of Vanity Fair, George Clooney, & Steven Spielberg, etc. .

    • Well if all all these fail Rush can broadcast from a ship in the Gulf just like in Israel in the 1970s where an unlicensed radio station broadcast from sea was launched by Abie Nathan! It worked!
