Media Matters for America is organized as a tax exempt 501(c)3 organization.  Under IRS guidelines, they must abide by several rules to maintain this status.  Specifically, 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.

You can read an interesting article on this subject “Is Media Matters Breaking the law in its ‘war’ on Fox News?” The article strongly suggests that Media Matters is violating its exemption as an educational foundation by actively participating in partisan political activities. Specifically the IRS application for 501(C)(3) tax-exempt educational foundation status, Section VIII, Question I asks the applicant: “Do you support or oppose candidates in political campaigns in any way?” (Emphasis added).

The Internal Revenue Service has a complaint form 13909 Tax-Exempt Organization Complaint (Referral) Form that is one page in length.  The form comes with easy to follow instructions and then can be mailed, faxed, or emailed to the IRS office.

I have taken the liberty to complete the initial heading of the form to include Media Matters for America’s mailing address and tax ID number in order to assist any submitter with completing the complaint form.  You may download this form here.

I do suggest that you familiarize yourself with the IRS guidelines for 501(c)3 organizations here although this is not necessary in order to complete the form.

        • equaljustice says:

          You are full of it. They are businessmen concerned with economic growth in the USA. SOROS organization want to ruin businesses and have the Government take over! We barely have ANY conservative organizations and they don’t ATTACK with LIES and false accusations. NO ONE here is going to file a complaint against the list you just posted! PLEASE. GO back to MEDIA MATTERS where you GOT this BOGUS information!

        • deb says:

          George, I went to one of the sites you mentioned: The Heritage foundation…Although it is a conservative site
          (and it says so), I did not see anything on that site where it says it is “mounting guerrila warfare and sabotage” against any news agency, unlike David Brock, Media Matter’s founder who was quoted by Politico promising that his organization is mounting “guerrila warfare and sabotage” against Fox News. Media Matters doesn’t “educate”, it attacks free speech and wants to silence others that don’t agree with their views. I don’t know if MM is in violation of their tax exempt status
          but they are certainly hateful and sleezy and people should take notice that their purpose seems to be to get rid of the right of free speech which is worse than violating tax exempt status.

            Hmm, interesting comment, “deb”. But completely bizarre.

            All Media Matters does is produce the tapes and the transcripts of what was actually said by people in the media, on Fox “News” and everywhere else.

            Are Fox “News” people objecting to their own words? Why?

            Please tell us, specifically, how Media Matters “attacks free speech”? Can you tell us exactly where and when they did this?

            And how and shy is simply playing the tapes and reproducing the actual transcripts from Fox “News” “hateful and sleezy” (sic)?

        • Billy Joe Jim Bob says:

          After The 8 Years Of The Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Get Mad and say Obama needs to follow the Constitution?

          You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

          You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq .

          You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

          You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

          You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us. You didn’t get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

          You didn’t get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.

          You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq .

          You didn’t get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

          You didn’t get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.

          You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

          You didn’t get mad when we didn’t catch Bin Laden.

          You didn’t get mad when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits.

          You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

          You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans drown.

          You didn’t get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the filthy rich, over a trillion dollars in taxbreaks. You didn’t get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.

          You didn’t get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance.

          You didn’t get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values.

          No…..You finally got mad

          When a black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick.

          Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick…Oh, Hell No!!

          • Ed says:

            Well, you hit all the lib talking points. The real ones and the b.s. ones.

          • Barb says:

            First off you are just repeating the lib lies.

            The supreme court did not stop a recount…they had several! What they stopped was the Fl supreme court for interfering and changing the voting rules which they had no authority to do – it is the legislature that makes the rules.

            And Cheney gave the energy officials license to dictate the energy policies? Proof please, not stupid accusations derived way out in left field.

            Plume was outed by her husband bragging to his cohorts in State Dept on who his wife worked for….and she was not COVERT! What was sickening is that the AG knew it was State big wig and still ignored it and went after Libby who had nothing to do with any of it.

            Why get mad that we were torturing killers with info? I for one agree with it. And it was not all prisoners as you allude to.

            Where do you get your facts? 10 billion disappeared in Iraq? Not quite the trillions that have disappeared from the Obama stimulus (think it was set aside for his re-election payoffs)

            Didn’t get mad when we didn’t get bin laden? As I recall everyone got pissed when Clinton turned down a turn over of the man. You really need to study the facts and then kinda use some form of intelligent rational of what you speak.

            And quite contrary to your assertion (exaggeration?) of wiretapping americans…those being tapped were under surveilance as anti-american possible jihadists. Normal law abiding run of the mill americans were never wiretapped.

            Bush did not ring up 10 trillion…he did in 8 yrs ring up 5 trillion. The other 5 trillion he inherited from Clinton. And look at the debt in just 2 yrs of Obama…5 trillion!! You really should know your subject matter before shooting of from the hip.

            New Orleans drowned? Blame the blacks running the state and city. All we heard was complaints and “poor me”…massive corruption! The recent flooding in other states along with the tornados has had more self reliance and not our begging and blaming everyone for the problems of nature…and there has been much more extentsive damage and loss than New Orleans. And Obama was no where to be seen …too busy compaigning for dollars.

            You are typical liberal marxist…hate for the doers and successful people. Pure jealousy that you can’t or too lazy to compete so you want to bring everyone with more than you down to your level. Nobody, according to you, should have more money than they can spend??? We shold all be on welfare, right?

            200,000 people died because they didn’t have any of the free care programs available? My cure, buy insurance like the rest of us do.

            8 years of creations in what? Just throwing a “fill-in’the-blanks is so typically progressive….lol

            Bush balmed for loss in the stocks and etc.? The boys running those institutions are now Obama administrators….they were his big backers. Most are millionaires and paid no taxes – can you name any of them?

            Yes I got mad that people voted for a man because of his color and no background checks were performed. He is and was anti-american and is a marxist intent on bringing this country to ruin…a very scary person (front man) He campaigns, golfs, parties and does as he is told by his handlers – a real empty suit who can read a teleprompter.

            And last but not least….all of your last paragraph accusations applies to Obama….it is all HIS. Your blaming someone else gets real old – a liberal/Democratic modus operandi as far back as I can remember…and I go back a looonnggg ways!

You’re missing one little important detail in your comment…they do pay taxes, unlike Soros and media matters. Idiot.

        • Rev Jim says:

          Mr. George, you claim these site are hateful and biased, if promoting what’s great and beautiful about this great country of ours then yes they are biased. And if pointing out a vast left wing agenda trying to destroy this great land of ours is hateful then yes they are hateful. I’m just one American,but this 4th of July weekend I’m grateful we have orgs. like The MRC & Heritage Foundation standing up for America and all Her greatness. So Mr. George there’s an old saying if you don’t like America you are free to go somewhere else, like Cuba or China or Iran or North Korea or some other freedom loving country.

          • Jim Cap says:

            Hey, “Rev Jim”, why should the right-wing organizations get to have tax exempt status but it be denied to progressive organizations? After all, there are many, many conservative groups, from the Heritage Foundation, to the Cato Institute, to Citizens United, to the Chamber of Commerce, that are allowed tax exempt status. By what logic do you say that only conservative groups should be allowed to have this?

            Are you saying that only those organizations with conservative opinions should be allowed to be tax-exempt?

            If not, then what are you saying?

          • Rev Jim says:

            In reply to Mr “Jim Cap” obviously you didn’t read my post I said nothing about tax-exempt status for any one. I replied to what George posted, and if promoting American exceptionalism is hateful and biased then yes those groups are just that. media matters claims to be educational and unbiased, which is how they are able to get a tax exempt status. They maybe educational I don’t know, but if their unbiased then I’m the pope. The groups you and Gorge mention don’t make those claims. That I know of. You know right up front their conservative non-profit orgs. And if you ask me their should be no such thing as tax-exempt for any one. If ppl want to be outraged over something they should be screaming about GE, 14 billion in profit and not a single penny in taxes, but a poor schmuck like me makes less than 10k and had to pay almost 2k in taxes. If I have to pay then all should have to. But nooooo were to busy calling each other names like your left, no your right, no your a con, no your a lib, no your a dem, no your a rep,and so on and so on. I just hope I live long enough for us all to be Americans again.

        • Kinsey says:

The typical liberal mouthwash spittal “the Koch brothers are behind it…” etc. Truth be known, yes, they do support numerous conservative pro-business causes, and tru some do have tax exempt status. However, for every organization supported by the Koch brothers, I can name one or more that are directly supported and mounted by George Soros, with the intent of disrupting our economy as he has already done elsewhere so he can sell shart and increase his wealth at the expense of all others.

        Enough with the George did this, the Koch brothers did that! Get off the published talking points, use your brain and imagnie what others are trying to gain and at who’s expense. As for me, I belive the consrvative ways are more tolerant of the individual and the liberal ways are more in step with government rule over all. Which do you really want?

          Billy Joe Jim Bob, You are too funny. I don’t know what you do for a living, but under G.W. after we recovered quickly from the 911 Muslim Terror attack the economy in Florida was screaming. Les than 4% unemployment, year after year growth, reasonable gas prices etc. We were working hard and having fun. With another term of Obama and Democratic Socialist direction we are done. Any of the Soros funded groups are designed to destroy our way of life. They are 100% Democrat suporters. Are you personally prepaired for the next battle? The ignorant, uninformed and union ranks will run like little school girls when the real battle for this Country begins. I bet you will cry like a kitten. Be prepaired and mount up as they said in the mid 1770′s. I need to go to work and keep 75 people employed for as long as I can.

You opposed wiretapping terrorists, waterboarding and Gitmo but you are ok with entering Pakistan Illegally and Obama ordering summary execution of an unarmed man and his family? ( which I have no issie with) . You bashed Bush for spending and now embrace Obama spending.

      Seriously, you conservative hypocrites are truly a joke.

        There is NOTHING hypocritical about expecting people to tell the truth, take responsibility FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILY and stop demanding that someone else support them.
        You want to give the current occupant of the white house credit for bin laden; that coward never served and IF bin laden was actually killed, which I question, then THE NAVY SEALS GET THE CREDIT….NOT THE SOCIALIST IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

    Q: Why doesn’t Media Matters want to pay taxes?

    A: Libs are all for spreading other people’s wealth, not their own.

    Revoke their tax-exempt status and make them pay back all amounts due. Further, make them air matching amounts of Conservative and or opposing views on all networks.

    Revoke the exempt status of Media Matters and make George Soros pay all unpaid taxes. He is scum.

      Wow – are the Koch Brothers scum also??

        No they are not. The Koch Brothers the equivalent of George Soros, a NAZI collaborator? hardly. BTW, where did this sudden hatred for the Kochs come from? before 2010 no one knew who they were. On the other hand, commie pig filth Soros has been banned from both England and France, is not allowed to do business in China(the Chicoms know a commie when they see one-they do have 70 years of looking at themselves in the mirror). Maybe you can tell me who the Kochs employ-The Sore one employs the likes of Van Jones(filthy black racist AND communist) Samantha Power(ditto Jones) and John Podesta(never held a job in his life outside of politics). Some ‘crowd”. I can name the Sore at Us clan-you CANT name me anyone with the Kochs. return to your day “job” of providing Oral sex to Barney Frank.

  15. Leo Ivey says:

    Shouldn’t an Excise Tax be imposed under the following Exemption Requirements – Section 501(c)(3) Organizations paragraph? Specifically, it appears that an individual (George Soros)is providing funds and compensation for a front organization to benefit the beliefs and plans the individual advocates!

    “The organization must not be organized or operated for the benefit of private interests, and no part of a section 501(c)(3) organization’s net earnings may inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual. If the organization engages in an excess benefit transaction with a person having substantial influence over the organization, an excise tax may be imposed on the person and any organization managers agreeing to the transaction.”

    Just a thought since I am not well versed in this area!

  16. Mike Bernal says:

    Media Maters is knowingly in violation of IRS Tax Exempt Organization regulations and it’s status must be revoked. Are they going to be protected by the liberal administration in the White House?

    Hey Media Matters.

    I do not get it. You are a tax exempt organization yet you blast a political party. Shame on you. I forgot tht you have no shame. I ust wish I had 5 minutes alone with any one of you dirtbags. I was a Viet Nam era vet and I can tell you I love this great country and you are trying to push your religion down my throat. Well come here punk! You better start paying your taxes if you want to take a vile stand in oppostition against good Americn people because they dont believe in your shit ty ideas.

        To George,

        I looked into the sites your mentioned.
        The Heritage Foundation and Cato Institute do not receive government funding. So you can’t include them.

        I could not locate a no government funding statement on Media Research Center, US Chamber of Commerce or Citizens United Foundation websites.

        I read some of the aricles on each and found NO! blatant decrees to silence others. Some actual arguments presented. Good stuff. Thanks for presenting them.

        On departure, I reviewed the ACLU. So, George never fear, they are there for you. Oh and surprise, surprise Mr.Soros was noted as a major funder.

  31. Kelly Whitten says:

    Just because they have money does not make them above the law. Make them pay taxes. And investigate them for spiteful attacks on media.

  36. Karen Bracken says:

    How about this for an idea. No tax deferred status for ANY group, company, person. Lets do away with the current tax code COMPLETELY and implement a pure consumption tax. This way EVERYONE pays their fair share with no exceptions. We will have more money in our countries bank account than ever before. Currently more than half our population pay no taxes at all. If you live in America and benefit from this wonderful country then EVERYONE should pay. Rich and poor alike.

  37. Cheryl Boyd says:

    George Soros has enough money to fund Media Matters. It is completely immoral and criminal to give them tax-exempt status. Many Americans feel the same way. Time to close all the loopholes.

  38. IRS stop funding Media Matters…It is illegal to fund someone’s political Propaganda!!!!!! Please everyone stop Media Matters from using tax payer’s money to fund Obama’s propaganda machine!!!!!!! Damn, I am so sick of this corruption in this Administration and why are we funding the liberal media that Obama has in his pocket!!! They need to fund themselves and stop using us, hardworking American’s, to pay for their lies and propping Obama up…those bias progressive idiots.

  39. jandel says:

    Media Matters need to be audited

  40. R Glenn says:

    All matters related to Media Matters tax status should be investigated immediately and not ignored and hope we the tax payers forget the special treatment they are receiving. It’s disgracefull that they receive any tax breaks. This is an example of FRAUD that OBAMA promised to wipe out. Just like medical fraud,it is a booming business.(stealing our tax dollars)

    The IRS must investigate this corrupt,pathologic group.. The only intent of this group is to deflect attentcion from their own nefarious deed, and to destroy any station telling the truth to the American people. THis is the type of group whose whole purpose in life is to lie, destroy and betray America.. Isn’t if funny, none of these abominable pieces of human detritus will leave America, they just want to destroy it..

  48. Ed Burke says:

    because of the current political attack by media matters and the support and monetary aid given by sleazy and politicaly motivated individuals,the irs should certainly investigate them. hopefully,this will result in the removal of their tax exempt status and payment of back taxes.unfortunately,under the current admistration i doubt anything will change. signed,eddie b

  49. Annette Fibuch says:

    Please investigate so we know all laws that pertain to US citizens should also include Media Matters.

  50. david pfister says:

    I believe that we all should be exempt if these people are

  51. Bob Ament says:

    It takes no more than 15 seconds at the Media Matters website to form the opinion that they are obsessively anti-Fox News. The content of the website and its financial support by George Soros through his shell organizations is enough evidence that this is nothing but a leftist propaganda site……not an education outlet! Josef Goebbels would have been proud! Either take away their tax exemption……or provide Fox News with one!

  52. Adele Capozzi says:

    The IRS would not think twice to investigate a citizen go do your job and do a thourgh investigation into how the taxpayers money is spent

  54. Carla Jewell says:

    This is shameful. I do not want my tax dollars going to a group that would target a news organization!

  55. James Millar says:

    Media Matters 501(c)(3) status is a total fraud. There is no charitable work and is in fact a divisive special interest organization. The perform no differently than a Political Action Committee (PAC) and therefore deserve No exemption from taxes nor should contributors receive any tax deductions for contributions. This is the Obama administration’s illegal political action group paid for by tax payers against all campaign laws. What is the IRS doing???

    • Monty says:

      MMfA was started in 2004, when Bush was president. Has nothing to do with Obama.

      Where’s your posting asking for the conservative Media Research Center’s tax-exempt status to be revoked?

      • James Millar says:

        MMFA may have started in 2004 and received its 501(c)(3) under one premise (mission objective) then subsequent to Obama’s election MMFA changed its mission to that of a political action organization committee in direct conflict/violation of the current (and previous)IRS tax code articulated in the code 501(c)(3). MMFA no way qualifies for tax exemption under the code. Donors are NOT entitled to tax deductions for contribution, this is nothing but a PAC!

        • James Millar says:

          Monty, by the way, MMFA must have their tax exempt status REVOKED! The MMFA leadership should be prosecuted for FRAUD and TAX EVASION! The contributors should be audited and the deductions disallowed then taxes must be paid along with penalties. Plain and simple.

          That is unless you are Tim Geithner or a “friend of Obama”!

    • Jim Cap says:

      Well, Mr. Millar, what about the conservative groups that have tax exempt status? Should only conservative groups be allowed to have this?

      Do you support groups like the Cato Institute and Citizens United having tax-exempt status? If not, why not? If so, then why should only right-wing groups be allowed to have this status?

  56. No tax exemption should be given to any organization that George Soros funds since most are subversive to the United States of America.

  57. Debra says:

    It’s about time someone starts checking on this type of organization. We are tired of paying these people, so they can turn around and tear everything we believe apart. We have freedom of speech, that’s fine…I just don’t want to pay people who want to hurt my world on a continued basis.

  58. greg k says:

    Media matters has tuned into a political group, tax exemption should be off the boards.

  59. Chicago Nick says:

    Done. And tweeted out to my 4000 followers and that’s just the beginning. Be sure to tweet it to yours and throw this and the Fox news article on your FB walls and blogs. These people are Soros funded commie criminals.

  60. Jayne Nagy says:

    Media Matters is a sham non-profit and needs to be audited, charged for back taxes, fined heavily and shut down.

  61. Matt S says:

    Tax this organization. Tax them now.

  62. Alton D. McDonald says:

    Media Matters must be stopped from receiving any of my tax money in the future! This is a Corrupt Far Left Progressive movement organization that wants to destroy a very fine news outfit, Fox News. All Americans should be concerned when these criminal organizations are allowed to severely affect the outcome of the #1 News Company in the World!

  63. Cheryl Oxner says:

    I am outraged that Media Matters has tax exempt status. They are so obviously left wing and their war on Fox News only proves it.

  68. John Barnett says:

    The Kenyan camel jockey should be writing a check for $500,000 for the tax payer vacation that his spouse has defrauded the American public out of. This in it’s self is a crime yet because the American public is so weak kneed they won’t speak of the impeachment of Barrak Obama, the weak kneed American public won’t call their Representatives or
    Senators to complain. We deserve what we get, a Kenyan camel jockey that just happens to be a Socialist.

  69. Otto Jr. says:

    I’m of the same opinion as everyone else here; STOP GIVING TAX BREAKS TO ANYONE THAT HAS A LEFTIST AGENDA. ESPECIALLY WITH MY MONEY!!! George Soros & Media Matters should be investigated by the IRS. A special investigation by the JUSTICE DEPARTMENT should be done on George Soros for stacking leftist judges in our states. Arm yourselves with guns & bullets. The CHANGE that Obama & his cronies want is developing at a faster pace than what you may realize. OBAMA: ENSLAVING AMERICANS THROUGH MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF DEBT/FOOD STAMPS/HAND OUTS/CRONY CAPITALISM/AND HAND OUT TO ALL HIS ALLIES (THE UNIONS…GREEN PROJECTS…AND LEFTIST COUNTRIES). STOP GIVING OUR MONEY AWAY…ESPECIALLY SINCE WE ARE BANKRUPT!!!

  70. Rolando Perez says:

    Investigate Media Matters and George Soros quickly so the truth comes out on their illegal activities.
    Charge them with the taxes they have not paid as well as interests and penalties.We can use the money to paid down our debt.No more tax exempt status for them.

  71. IRS investigate NOW its your job.No taxs exemption for media matters.

  72. Diane Smith says:

    Why are they tax exempt. We all have to pay our taxes. What is wrong with our goverment. This country is going to hell in a handbag. Between Media Matter & NPR they all need to be audited. Once Obama get out of office everything he has touched should be audited. The reason is Media Matter is at war with fox they are the only new station that is fair and balance.

    Where Do I Sign….

  74. Harry Moore says:

    As a taxpayer who has always tried to follow the draconian rules of the IRS I object to any group that ignores the requirements for being tax exempt.

    The IRS has gone after conservative religious organizations for years if they so much as hint that they might have conservative political views.

    Don’t the same rules apply to liberal groups? If not, does the 14th amendment mean anything anymore?

    These bureaucrats don’t seem to understand that they work for us!

  75. Jan Carmichael says:

    A corporation that is working to undermine the very core of our Country’s right to free speech should not be exempt from the very taxes this country needs to pay down its debt. I have a hard time thinking my tax dollars are helping fund an organization who thinks they have the only voice that should be heard in America. Thomas Paine is rolling in his grave.

  76. Jack Hotchkiss says:

    Yes. Its well past time to remove all these hands from my pockets!
    Investigate Media Matters and George Soros now so that the truth comes out on their illegal activities.
    Charge them with the taxes they have not paid as well as interests and penalties. No more tax exempt status for them.

  77. Terry Slater says:

    Their tax exempt status should be revoked immediately, and all
    back taxes plus interest, should be paid by Media Matters NOW!

    Investigate Media Matters and George Soros now so that the truth comes out on their illegal activities.

    How stupid can it get. Does George Soros pay you off also?

  78. D. Patterson says:

    I went to Media Matters website and found that they are not interested in the general populace, just liberal and gay agendas. They admit what their focus is on and in my opinion since they are narrow in their focus that the general public is not served by them. They are politically opinionated and should lose their non-profit status and repay all the benefits they have received by their “silly” rhetoric.

  79. Nanci Breagy says:

    I too am outraged that Media Matters is allowed to continue in the practice of violating their tax exempt status. They (David Brock)must be audited immediately as they are clearly a proxy for the Democratic Party. Media Matters cannot be allowed to be in the political arena any longer as they are activly promoting Liberal candidates and attacking Conservative candidates. Please IRS – do your job! Thank you!

  80. Karen Kernes says:

    If they want tax exempt status, they need to stay out of government issues. They have no right to curb freedom of speech in any venue. Yet another example of government playing favorites with their political backers. AUDIT! AUDIT!

    • Monty says:

      How have they curbed anyone’s freedom of speech? Give a specific example of how they have forced legislation to take away freedom of speech from anyone? After all, the 1st amendment only covers congress making laws taking away freedom of speech.

  81. Bill Jones says:

    I think they should be investigated along with george soros. maybe they could check out NPR. it also gets money from soros. he is trying to destroy anything he feels is not politically in his corner. keep up the good work fox!!!

    Any entity receiving federal funds should never show bias. I believe Media Matters has crossed the line and needs a thorough audit. I believe that a refund to the IRS is in order as far back as evidence of bias can be found.

    I am demanding that the tax exempt status of Media Matters be revoked!!

  90. It is absolutely insane that media matters receives tax exempt status. Corrctt this NOW.

  91. Don Woodson says:

    Remove Media matters from tax exempt status.

  92. I looked at the website and could not find one story that was not a slap at conservatives.

  93. GAYLE says:

    NO TAX EXEMPTIONS FOR MEDIA MATTERS. INVESTIGATE THEM AND GEORGE SOROS. IT IS WAY PAST TIME TO STOP THIS MADNESS !!

  94. Loretta Staller says:

    Please remove Media Matters from tax exempt status. They need to leave Fox News alone, they are the only place we can get the truth!!!!

  95. Dean says:

    First of all being bias against any organization is definately against the laws when you are being government subsidized….
    We all know that Media Matters is as liberal as you can get.

  96. Helen Jenkins says:

    Media Matters should not only be investigated for tax fraud, but also as a subversive agent in America. The entire operation to collapse America’s economic -capitalistic – system through overwhelming has George Soros fingerprints all over it! George Soros must learn what America haters’ attempts to fundamentally transform America learned the hard way – IT “AIN’T” NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN! Let this IRS investigation be mere a prelude of what’s to come! George Soros, Satan’s Treasurer is finding out what happens when EVIL attacks a FAITH BASED NATION. Butte kicking is just the beginning of horrors to terrible to mention are waiting.

    • Jim Cap says:

      Ha ha ha ha ha.

      Hey “Helen Jenkins”, do you have any idea how nutty and unhinged you are?

      Go adjust your tin foil hat, girl, and keep looking under that bed for “The Liberals”. You’re pretty delusional. Aren’t you?

  97. Lorenzo Gonzales says:

    Media matters is bias on their political view, it is all George Soros’s fingerprint that wan to destroy this country. He like evil will fail for America is a nation of goverment by the people.

    • Jim Cap says:

      “George Soros!” “George Soros!” “George Soros!” Oh please. As if we can’t see what you’re really saying.

      Why don’t you just come out and call him “the dirty Jew banker and conspirator”?

      Because it’s obvious that’s what you, and most right-wingers are saying in private. (Look what happened to Glenn Beck once the Jewish community reacted to his anti-Jewish hate speech against Soros. He’s now gone because of it.)

      Or do you George Soros haters think we can’t smell your obvious and quite sickening anti-Semitism?

  98. Jay says:

    Media Matters must be removed from tax exempt status.Media Matters work for O

  99. Jay says:

    Media Matters must be removed from tax exempt status because they are operatives for Obama and the Democratic party as vicious attack dogs against Republicans and Conservatives.They are a disgrace.

  100. Bill & Ginger St. John says:

    We request that the tax exempt status for Media Matters be removed. Its current bias warrantes immediate investigation by your agency. Thank You.

  101. Alexandra Greeley says:

    Make Soros pay his taxes. Media Matters is his puppet.

  102. SBartley says:

    I think Media Matters should have to pay taxes. It is definitely not providing any kind of service to American citizens.

  103. Jim Mahaffey says:

    As long as Dems control the White House (therefore the IRS), you guys are DREAMING if you think this idea will do ANYTHING to Media Matters or George Soros!!!
    I agree in spirit, but there is such thing as R-E-A-L-I-T-Y!

  104. Dick Engen says:

    Jim Mahaffey’s comments state exactly what the problem is in this country. We need to have the courage and conviction to have Congress and any individual who thinks he or she is above the law dealt with and punished according to the law. Media Matters should have to pay taxes retroactively to the date of its first violation.

  105. John Beck says:

    This represents a violation of the rules of the game. If the Dems can’t get their way, they go around the law. This is a travesty of justice, and that idoit in the White House, and his socialistic minions know it. We longer have freedom of the press in this country. The print media, and the networks (private as well those which are publically funded) are nothing but lap-dogs for the Yakaboma administration. The only exception is Fox News. File a suit against these idoits, and that includes the Supreme Socialist, George Soros, and “hater-in-chief” for everything this country used to stand for.

  106. Lisa King says:

    I request that the tax exempt status for Media Matters be removed. Its current bias warrantes immediate investigation by your agency. Thank You.

  107. Bill Simpson says:

    It is obvious that some Liberals feel they can get away with anything. The IRS is acting like a subversive organization. Keep their feet to the fire until they cry “UNCLE”!!!

  108. George Rollins says:

    It’s time Media Matters is held to the same laws as every other honest AMERICAN. George Soros needs to be audited and if found guilty he needs to spend some time in a Federal prison, and not a Martha Stewart country club.

    • Jim Cap says:

      “George Soros!” “George Soros!” “George Soros!” Oh please. We see what you’re really saying.

      Why don’t you just come out and call him “the dirty Jew banker and conspirator”?

      Because it’s obvious that’s what you, and most right-wingers are saying in private. (Look what happened to Glenn Beck once the Jewish community reacted to his anti-Jewish hate speech against Soros. He’s now gone because of it.)

      Or do you George Soros haters think we can’t smell your obvious and quite sickening anti-Semitism?

  109. Gary Bryson says:

    Soros needs to be audited by the IRS i think the rest woud take care of it’s self. And if the [politicions cant put America ahead of their ego’s they will have to go like a lot of them that will join Obama on his way out—he is not going to be alone in his walk to unemployed— and that doesn’t happen Greece will look like a picnic and i will right in the middle of it, the differece being that we have guns and freedom___GB

  110. Jack Russell says:

    Media Matters does not qualify as a tax exempt organization and should immediately be required to furnish back taxes for their sham operation. “Equal justice” under the law means taxpayers have a right to demand removal of Media Matters tax status.

    • Jim Cap says:

      Then why don’t you want to remove that status for the many conservative groups that also have it?

  111. joe glorioso says:

    media matters sure does not deserve any tax exempt status,they are only there to serve obama and his cronies nothing more and we are tired of paying for it. they should be cut off today.

  112. Bev erly Wideman says:

    By their own admission, Media Matters has made a determination to promote a specific political agenda. That clearly disqualifies their claim to be considered a tax exempt organization and the IRS is legally obligated to revoke that tax exempt status, effective immediately.

  113. Jack says:

    revoke their tax free status

  114. Media Matter now promotes a pre-determined political agenda.
    Such disqualifies their tax exempt status.
    The IRS must take away MM’s tax exempt status NOW!
    My tax dollars are wasted so much now it is disgraceful.
    At least in this instance, the taxpayer can save some money from a propaganda machine.

  115. Jeff Allen says:

    Media Matters is a political weapon used by the Democrats to attack those who do not agree with them. It’s no different than if my Pastor sits up in Church and attacks the left and “suggests” voting for the right.

    It’s past time they stood on their own. They can attack all they want, just not with taxpayer money!

  116. Steven says:

    As a political advocacy group, which is demonstrated by their actions, Media Matters should not be authorized to hold a tax free status.

  117. Oedipus Tex says:

    Make them pay!

  118. John says:

    There is something about the name George Soros that sounds an awful lot like Joseph Goebbels. It’s state sponsored censorship and government funded propaganda. Guess Soros learned that while hiding his Jewishness from the Nazi in the 1940s. By the way, wasn’t he an informant for the Nazis, turning fellow Jews over to be shipped off into oblivion? Seems like history is repeating itself only its conservative talk radio hosts and FOX that’s being “shipped off.”

    • Jim Cap says:

      Another anti-Semitic diatribe from a typical conservative.

      The historic relationship between conservative politics and hating Jewish people is pretty firmly established.

      And this coward named “John” who wouldn’t dare say such slurs in public, hides here and spews his anti-Semitic, conservative garbage.

      You’re typical of the Jewish-hating modern conservative who thinks he can cover it up by saying how much he “loves” Israel.

      • Gary says:

        Soros sold out his own people to save his own life. He is jewish & was instrumental in having his own kind exterminated. How many liberals condone his actions? It seems that all here do. Get your priorities straight liberals/regressives. You want to talk about a people being anti-semetic? You lefties are all about being against the jewish people. How many times has obama been to Israel? ZERO times!!! How many time has he talked out against Irael? MANY times!!! Who voted for obama and still stands behind him and his agenda to bankrupt America? All you on here spouting off FOR the illegaly operating company media matters! You’re all scared that you all might have to work and pay for your benefits & retirements like the majority of Americans instead of having it handed to you, your unions and your public sectors. You spout equal this and equal that but you don’t want it to effect you in any way, just others, you’re all hypocrites in the worst way.

  119. USPat says:

    Let George Soros and Hillary Clinton pay the taxes. It is there business anyway!!!! George has enough money to try and kill this country, and Hillary has Bill…the same “Wad of Bill’s” that Monica had.

  120. marc jensen says:

    Why is a organization with anti-conservative political views and actions being given tax excempt status in violation of the reguqirements placed on them by their tax exempt status??

  121. Jim Atkin says:

    A Section 501(c) tax exempt organization must avoid any appearance of engaging in political or legislative matters which espouse the organization’ bias. Media Matters, it has been said, has apparently violated the Sect.501(c) requirement. An investigation by the IRS should be instituted to determine the facts.

    • Jim Cap says:

      Interesting.

      Do you think the same is true for the numerous conservative organizations that have been enjoying tax exempt status for decades?

  123. R. William Pratt says:

    It’s VERY clear that Media Matters is a political organization and not eligible for tax exempt status. Even a novice can see the obvious. Section 501(c)tax exempt organization must avoid any appearance of engaging in political or legislative matters which espouse the organization’ bias. Media Matters has clearly and unequivocally violated the Sect.501(c) requirements. An investigation by the IRS must be instituted to determine the facts. As a citizen of the United States, I am demanding that such an investigation be undertaken immediately.

    Media Matters must be removed from tax exempt status because they are operatives for Obama and the Democratic party as vicious attack dogs against Republicans and Conservatives.They are a disgrace.

  125. Veronica A. Rinaldi says:

    Let’s hope the IRS removes Media Matters from tax exempt status,there are enough of them employed now to investigate them with a fine tooth comb!
    And George Soros too!

    • Jim Cap says:

      “George Soros!” “George Soros!” “George Soros!” Another Jew-hater trying to hide it by going after Soros. Disgusting.

      Why don’t you just come out and call him “the dirty Jew banker and conspirator”?

      Because it’s obvious that’s what you, and most right-wingers are saying in private. (Look what happened to Glenn Beck once the Jewish community reacted to his anti-Jewish hate speech against Soros. He’s now gone because of it.)

    • Jim Cap says:

      Why do you hate Jewish people so much, Debby Hansen?

      And do you think you can hide your anti-Semitism by going after Soros only?

  128. George says:

    Media Matters is in violation of Section 501(c) tax exempt status as it has blatantly failed to avoid any appearance of engaging in political or legislative matters. Revoke Media Matters tax exempt status. Liberty and Justice is for all not for the few.

  129. QC Ghost says:

    Is Soros in our Country legally?

  130. Henry Rinnert says:

    George Soros and his bunch should be tried for treason…tax exempt my Ass!

  131. Monty says:

    You’re really off-base and wasting your time. Here’s why…you cited a question from the IRS application for 501c3 status:

    “Do you support or oppose candidates in political campaigns in any way?”

    Show evidence of MMfA specifically supporting or opposing a candidate in a political campaign or race. In specific terms, in order to violate that provision of the IRS code, Media Matters would have to have actively through ads or endorsements, or as an organization, monetarily, supported a candidate. They have not.

    Media Matters is within its bounds, as a 501c3 organization, to “wage a war” against Fox News, that is to say, unless Fox News is a political candidate running for office.

    Besides, where’s the similar outrage of the Media Research Center, that hosts CSNS, Newsbusters, etc? Media Matters doesn’t do anything that they don’t do.

    • Monty says:

      As well, if you believe this, then you should also be pulling for the removal of Tax Exempt status for the Mormon church, as its members were encouraged to take an active role in the Prop 8 vote in California a few years back.

      Most if you don’t see you have a very firm grasp on what 501(c)(3) organizations are allowed to do. I suggest you all visit IRS.gov to find out for yourselves.

  132. Black Flag says:

    What ever happened to “Paying taxes is patriotic”? Libs sure don’t like it when THEY are the ones paying the taxes.

  133. Monty says:

    Another reason this is really idiotic…read the “Nature of Violation” section that you have to fill out on the pre-filled out form. MMfA hasn’t engaged in a single one of those, nor have they (based upon your evidence) violated the tax code.

  134. Roger Smith says:

    Stop the use of Taxpayers money for Media Matters to declare war on Fox News. Audit them for all such use and recover money ofr the general fund.

  135. Monty says:

    Do you people realize that MMfA DOES NOT GET TAXPAYER MONEY? Say it with me-they receive **0** federal dollars. Seriously-you need to look up what it means to be a 501(c)(3) organization.

    • Roberto Fontanez says:

      Monty could you please go back to one of your liberal web sites and comment on your own garbage way of thinking over there? We have enough with Media Matters and CBS, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CNN, Newsweek, the leftist media, the liberal shows and commentators to now even here have to dea with an idiot like you. GO AWAY!

    • janettec says:

      Monty, do you people realize that what you are doing is destroying this country or do you even care? Soros has brought the devil out of all of you who are helping him. You all have become vile and evil and must hate America in such a horrible way.

  136. Capt. Jerry says:

    With this administrations mindset I doubt my words will be falling deaf ears but here goes. MM is an anit-american org. that is doing the bidding of G. Soros who’s prime mission is to destroy the US as we know it today. He did it too England with their banking system and now its us. His org. is totally corrupt and you know it, but he serves the BH well and thats OK with you. Try this, NO MORE TAX EXEMPT, PROSECUTE AND GET BACK ALL THE MONIES THEY HAVE ILLEGALLY TAKEN AND THEN SHUT THEM DOWN.

  137. John E. Offutt says:

    Revoke the tax exempt status of Media Matters, what they are doing in wrongful.

  138. Kathey J. says:

  143. Removed tax exemption. Investigate Meduia matters we do not need this in america.

  144. richard patti says:

    Media Matters must not be eligible for tax exempt status. They should be prevented from using Taxpayers money for Media Matters to declare war on Fox News. They should be audited and require them to repay this money. The results of this audit should be reported tothe American people. George Soris ahould also be investigated in his attempt to disrupt the American way of life.

  145. John Wes terfield says:

    I don’t believe that media matters should receive any help from the tax payers. Their tax exempt status should be revolked. The IRS should investigate immediately.

  146. Don S says:

    Media Matters should not be eligible for tax exempt organization.
    Pleasse expose their bias.

  147. Joyce W says:

    I am filing this complaint against Media Matters. You know they are doing wrong. They must be stopped! NO MORE TAX EXEMPT FOR THIS GROUP! Make it right NOW!

  148. Victoria says:

    Media Matters’ tax exempt status should be denied immediately and they should have to pay retroactive taxes all the way back to the first attack of FOX, from when they first violated the rules governing charitable organizations. Bubba Clinton gave us retroactive taxation and it should apply to Media Matters.

  149. anna pozzie says:

    REVOLK Media Matters from all tax exemptions! I demand as an American tax payer that the IRS eliminate all exemptions to Media Maters and George Soros and also investigate and shut them down!

  150. Wayne T says:

    Media Matters should not be tax exempt, why does it take people to write in and complain when they are in plain sight?

  151. LaVetta says:

    I think the IRS should remove the tax exempt status from Media Matters, they apparently are not following the rules, The next one they should be investigating is George Soros, he is as anti american as they get.

  152. Loretta Carroll says:

    They should not receive tax free status since they do not fit the requirements………………….

  153. I think all tax exempt status should be removed from Media Matters and any funds alresdy received should be returned.

  154. Richard "Mac" McFetters says:

    501(3) Non-Profits are not only using tax exemption status on the Federal Level but on the local and state level. They do not have to pay property taxes and monies accumulated and put into CD’s are also exempt from State, Local and Federal taxation. If they do not adhere to their original mission statement and agreement which seeks exemption, their tax status should be investigated, and if found with a political venue, they should be denied eligibility.

  155. Rich Corraro says:

    Media Matters is left wing idealouge structured to create chaos upset the applecart, a typical George Soros fundded orginization, Which should not have a tax exempt status. Knowing the cronieism of this administration dont be surprised if they continue thier political assult and keep thier tax excempt stauts.

  156. Dan Lewis says:

    An audit on all tax exempt org. should be done. If an organization wants to be political then pay there fair share of taxes.

  157. John Simmons says:

    This organization clearly does not comply with the law. As such they need to loose their 501(c) status. I am on the Board of Directors for a 501(c) corporation and this type of behavior depreciates the status of many organizations that try to do good things for the country and their constituens.

  158. Art Schultz says:

    Yes, they should definitely be denied the tax exemption. However, with this bunch of thugs in power it’s not going to happen. It’s unfortunately going to have to wait until Holder, Obama and company are out of office (and hopefully on trial for rapeing the American public.

  159. Bias says:

    At Not Worthy of the 1st we are going after all these Journalistic Impostors! We to shall post this link and sign it. But one step, but still a step!

  160. John says:

    I would like to fill this out but what exactly do I say MM is doing wrong? I dont like that they are attacking FOX but is it illegal? I know they are taking tax payer funding but what option do I choose?
    NATURE OF VIOLATION:
    Directors/officers/persons are using income/assets for personal gain
    Organization is engaged in commercial, for-profit business activities
    Income/assets are being used to support illegal or terrorist activities
    Organization is involved in a political campaign
    Organization is engaged in excessive lobbying activities
    Organization refused to disclose or provide a copy of Form 990
    Organization failed to report employment, income, or excise tax liability properly
    Organization failed to file required federal tax returns and forms
    Organization engaged in deceptive or improper fundraising practices

  161. Susan Kaschel says:

    The tax exempt status should be removed and all money that they have received should be returned.

  162. Judy Fowler says:

    This is one of the biggest outrages that we have had to endure. It needs to stop NOW!!

  163. Sandra Moore says:

    I’ve grown up thinking that this was the land of opportunity and free speech. Media Matters is trying to take away our freedom of speech. This should not happen. I do not want my tax dollars to fund this organization. Fox News has every right to exist, as does ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, etc.

  164. Denise says:

    It is time for this to stop. The IRS goes after everyone if they are delinquent. We are asking that the IRS stops exempting Media Matters. Justice needs to be served to this company. They are so threatened by FOX News, that they will stop at nothing. This company has pretty much destroyed ‘Freedom of Press’. Again, they do NOT deserve exemptions, of any sorts.

  165. Fran says:

    Media Matters should not be enjoying tax-free status! Everybody knows what David Brock stands for (and George Soros) There’s no way it’s charity!

  166. nancy hutto says:

    I can not believe that Media Matters gets tax exempt status! They are led by the worse of the worst…George Soros!! This country better wake up to what he and his cronies (including Obama) are doing to America!! Media Media needs to pay taxes like any other organization!

  167. Jan Gulsvig says:

    No tax exempt status for Media Matters!

  168. pat clements says:

    No tax exemption for Media Matters – Patriotic Americans take back your country NOW

  169. David Worley says:

    In my opinion Media Matters has over stepped it’s tax exempt status and it should be revoked. It is also in my opinion that any and all taxes found to be owed to the US government be paid along with any penalty and interest.

  170. janettec says:

    Media Matters is a leftwing propaganda and should never receive our tax dollars. Take it away and fine them for committing fraud against American taxpayers. Make them pay penalties big time. George Soros shouldn’t be allowed to steal our money to make money for himself and his cronies. Enough already.

  171. Ercole Gaudioso says:

    Media Matters and all others like it should be stripped of tax exempt status. How things got this way should be investigated.

  172. janettec says:

    Take the tax exempt status away. It is obvious what they are all about.

  173. Terri Simons says:

    No tax exempt status for any media outlets. No taxpayer dollars to any media outlets. All people donating to MediaMatters should have to pay tax on their donations and their names and amounts of donations shoulded have to be posted for all to see.

  174. Bernie says:

    If the president want taxes hikes for the rich start with his good friend George S. wit Media Matters.

  175. tom thatcher says:

    their tax exempt status should be stripped immediately

  176. Media Matters is just a stepping stone for george sorus to complete his wants. Strip them of there status of tax exemption even they know their wrong

  177. denise says:

    the libs are so concerned about the status quo, have them let go of their loop holes and sustain their own endeavors without tax exempt status and “charitable” contributions. it is just another example of how the gov’t is wasting OUR hard-earned dollars.

  178. pete lydon says:

    revoke m&ms’ tax exempt status immediately,and bill them for past due taxes.

  179. Ed Roman says:

    “Specifically, 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.” Just based in the previous statement the Soros’ backed socialist organization Media Matters violates it’s supposed purpose. They are an attack dog for the Democrats and try to shut down any organization that tells the truth about the left’s troubling ideas. Remove their tax exemption immediately.

  180. Barbara Jones says:

    Media Matters has clearly violated the requirements for tax exemption laws and the IRS needs to investigate and take away Media Matters exemption and investigste contributors as well. Thia is an example of taxes being avoided by voilating federal laws. Request that IRS take immediate action and rectify this abuse.

  181. Glenn G says:

    An investigation must begin immediately. Start the investigation with the scum at the top namely George Soros. Then clean house, jail time, for all associated with Media Matters.

  182. jim conley says:

    this is not a charity and taxpayer funds should not be given to propaganda arms of George Soros

  183. Media Matters has obviously stepped far beyond the pale and should immediately have their 501(c)3 tax exempt status revoked. Their attack on Fox News is an obvious attempt to further candidates they favor and prevent the ones they don’t like from having a voice. I happen to watch Fox exclusively and strongly object to my tax money being used to damage something I like and support.

  184. The greatests empires of history fell because of evil, corrupt, selfindulgent,elietest leaders. I pray that America will soon be allowed to see what is surely happening to us. We need a leader who is familiar with the path. The one we have is definetly lost.

  185. Mike Gervais says:

    Its high time to take down Soros a notch or two.

  186. revoke their tax free status

  187. Ute D Anderson says:

    Media Matter should immediately lose their tax exempt status, since it’s nothing but a propaganda outlet of George Soros.

  188. Bella Pitell says:

    Revoke their tax free status. shame on them!

  189. James Flynn says:

    In my opinion, Media Matters is a partisan group of propagandists who pose as impartial fact based journalists.

    They should be paying their taxes just like any other opinion based news organization.

    In fact, in my opinion, their tax exempt status is equivalent to their taking a bribe, or being on the government payroll.

    As always, follow the money.

  191. Charles Hardeman says:

    Media Matter has obviously broken the requirements of being eligable for 501(c)3 tax exempt status. Its “war on Fox News” statement shows that it only a tool for the liberal left and one of George Soros’ puppets. Revoke this status!

  192. Media maters is in violation of IRS tax exempt status and it should be taken from them.

  193. Linda Coe says:

    Revoke the tax exempt status for this web site.Fair & balanced for all media outlets.

  194. Mr. & Mrs. Dale Richardson says:

    Another arm of the runaway Obama supporters. Media Matters should and MUST pay taxes.

  195. Charley E says:

    If Media Matters is doing something illegal, then their status ought to be denied. After all, the libs would, and have done that, to conservative groups. What we are now seeing are liberals, who have the power, doing all they can to keep the power. That means getting rid of anyone who differs from them. They want a one party rule in this country, and will use people like Soros and groups like Media Matter to accomplish their mission. Dishonesty and corruption are the words of the day.

  196. I request that Media Matters exempt status is revoked and charges for prior taxes be repaid!!!!!!!!!!

  197. Diane Vignola says:

    I believe that Media Matters exempt status should be revoked due to their attack on Fox News.

  198. Susan Stock says:

    All groups who are abusing or not following the laws of the United States should be treated equally under the law. Exemption guidlines are clearly stated and Media Matters needs to follow them as all others need to or they should NOT receive tax-exempt status. They are illegally playing with our freedom to make our own choices of information.

  199. Mike Nelson says:

    I believe that Media Matters exempt status should be revoked due to their attack on Fox News.

  200. Suzanne Sherwood says:

    Has everyone gone crazy?
    This “Media Matters” is breaking every law and rule that governs. You can place my vote to rid our Great Country from organizations and people that are trying, and getting away with, destroying the law and fairness that governs how we do business.
    Tax Exempt?
    Give me a break!
    Tax them!
    I refuse to let my tax dollars be used to promote Media Matters.

  201. Todd says:

    Investigate and collect the back taxes now!!!

  202. Fred A. James says:

    Why do we allow this lying,arrogant, socialist/muslim,his AG hinchmen, and tax cheat Treasurer to get away with this corruption. Answer: too many Americans are ignorant/uneducated and he is doing what he said he wanted to do! Impeach this administration for treason and corruption. Media Matters should pay all the monies back that were used against Fox News…never again to receive 501 (c) 3 status.

  203. Chris says:

    I attempted to send the form in but the e-mail address in the form is not working. Is anyone else having that issue?

  204. Marian Bennett says:

    If we don’t fight this gang of socialist thugs, America as we know it will end forever. Please put an end to this injustice.

  205. Jack Lewis says:

    This administration has nothing substantive to offer our country so they must try to silence those who point out the wrong direction they are taking us. If WE don’t pay attention and act we will leave a third-world country to our children and grand- children.
    Give me all points of view and I will make my own choice,Thank You!!
    Media Matters is not a tax-exempt organization by definition.

  206. Donna Powers says:

    The left doing what they’re always accusing the right of. What is this country coming to? We need to take away their tax exempt status immediately. If they get away with this, no telling what they’ll do next.

  207. We need to take away their tax exempt status immediately if not sooner. I am sick and tired of the left and their solialist agenda. TAX THEM NOW!!!!!

  208. Eagle says:

    They should lose their tax exemption.

  209. m. sharpe says:

    Political organizations should not be excluded from the rules of the game. If media matters has violated the rules then they should lose their tax status and exemption. Radicals should stand on their own Communist legs.

  210. bryan says:

    If they want to play by the rules, and don’t, Then the I.R.S. should make them pay by the rules. My opion matters!!!

  211. Edwards says:

    Lets get all the new media back on the right track. If they go anymore to the left they will fall off the earth. The IRS should look into the dealings of all the news networks, particularly the ones that are being subsidized by Soros or whatever his name is. He should put his money to better use than trying to corrupt the news media!

  212. T. Daves says:

    Media Matters needs to be investigated by the IRS for violation of their tax exception. This is a gross violation of the tax free laws!

  213. IRINA MATLOCK says:

    THIS IS THE OBAMA AGENT TO FIGHT RIGHT MEDIA. IT’S ABOUT TIME TO PUT THINGS IN PLACE: REVOKE MEDIA MATTERS TAX EXEMPT STATUS AND REMOVE OBAMA FROM THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!

  214. Ms. Harpie says:

    Pay your taxes Soros! Since you and your lefty minions want everybody else to pay more we’ll all get in line after you.

  215. Ken says:

    “Media matters” another left wing orginization that should, and will be stopped from having a tax exempt status, if the IRS can grow a pair, and go against the desires of the left, and the man in the WH that believes he is God.

  216. Charlie says:

    They have given up their tax exempt status once they changed their mission. They should pay taxes.

  217. SuzanneC says:

    George Soros is a Naturalized citizen, we can insiste he lose his citizenship since he is constantly trying to undermind our constitution and deport him back to Hungary.

  218. Lisa R says:

    This is a political, bomb-throwing organization funded by George Soros. They have one mission – the destruction of the American way of life. Revoke their tax-exempt status NOW! If I have to pay taxes, so should they.

  219. Carole S. says:

    They should have the pay taxes just like the rest of us. George Soros is a danger to our way of life in America.

  220. Grace says:

    Media Matters is exactly what Glenn Beck has talked about on his TV shows many times about their Liberal Bias, its connection to and being subsidized by George Soros. It is about time they have been exposed but will the IRS be allowed to look into their status with this administration being in control of all government agencies? It will be interesting to see that 1-there will be an IRS cover-up and it will all go away or 2-the truth will be revealed and they will finally loose their 501(c)3 status.

  221. Lanwehr says:

    Media Matters should be investigated re: re-evaluation of their tax exempt status, because of overt statements media matter CEO has uttered and statements displayed on their web page regarding their agenda to bring down Foxnews and all affiliated.

  222. Linda Mautz says:

    I am very unhappy that people who use their tax exempt status to their advantage in trashing a fair news organization is allowed to maintain their status quo. I say they can pay taxes like all the rest of us!

  223. SHARON LEATHERBERRY says:

    STOP GETTING THE TAX BREAKS! PAY BACK TAXES OR BE SHUT DOWN!

  224. Media Matters should not get tax breaks an should have to pay the money back. They are the one’s who are in the wrong.Fox news tells all the news. abc nbc msnbc are all on the side of the dem. an the president. They tell people only what they want them to know,instead of telling both sides an the truth of what is really happening.

  225. James Cole says:

    Stop the tax cuts, all news should be fair and balanced,not one sided,spooky dude has too much influence on this news organization

  226. Patriotson says:

    There are those who abuse the system of 501 (c) (3) status and those who use the system to their advantage. Media matters and Soros, an card carrying socialist, is determined to change the social system of America to one of class warfare and socialism. With Obama in the WH, he has a advocate for such change. Media Matters is violating the law with the exempt status for the purpose of subverting America. Remove the exempt status; investivage Soros, one of Obama’s “fat cats”. If Soros is for an equality of society, he should lead by example and redistribute his wealth to the 49% of Americans who pay no taxes what-so-ever in support of congresses undisciplined spending and are standing at the entry doors for their handout.

  227. Kathie says:

    I definetly think Media Matters should lose its tax exempt status. It has always been politcal and should never have been exempt to begin with.

    • Monty says:

      Being political doesn’t mean you can’t be tax exempt. But by your standards, the right-wing Media Research Center should also lose its tax exempt status.

  228. LarryBurns says:

    Just more of this administrations little tricks to circumnavigate the Law of the Land ! These people have no sense of fair play only foul ! Shame on them !

  229. Lawrence Brown says:

    Media matters should be CLOSED PERMANENTLY. The tax exempt status doesnot allow for the corruption and lies they are spreading.

  230. Dan says:

    They should take the status away, pay the taxes, & ship Soros out.

  231. Ron Perry says:

    I WANT MEDIA MATTERS TAX EXEMPT STATUS STOPPED AND I WANT THEM TO PAY THE TAXES THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN PAYING IN THE FIRST PLACE..THIS IS SO DAMN SILLY OF THIS GOVERNMENT TO GIVE TAX EXEMPTIONS TO NON-DESERVING COMPANIES AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS..
    ESPECIALLY WHEN GEORGE SOROS HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT,. THAT MAN SHOULD BE ASSASSINATED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE !!!!!!!

  232. Patty says:

    Help…I can’t find the prefilled form. The only one that comes up is blank. Am I missing something?

  233. Anna says:

    They’re being subsidized by George, Soooky Dood Soros, who is the worst of the worts. They pay taxes, or get rid of Media Matters. SOON!

  234. Betty says:

    There are a lot of people that could use the money they are receiving. Time to re-distribute money. Maybe I could get my house out of foreclosure.

  235. Maynard Mayton says:

    I definetly think Media Matters should lose its tax exempt status. I”m sick and tired of the government taking my money and giving it to A..hoes like Media Matters.

  236. Larry Sparks says:

    Media Matters was created by George Soros for the purpose of electing “progressive socialist” Democrats and creating disinformation to the public. Media Matters tax exempt status must be revoked immediately.

  237. Kathryn Brannon says:

    Media Matters exempt status should be revoked and investigated just like ACORN.

  238. Elaine Gardner says:

    Media Matters exempt status should be revoked immediately.

  239. Dave says:

    What I sent:
    To whom it may concern,
    I request that Media Matters exempt status is revoked.

    Sincerely and respectfully,

  240. Jon W. Lundberg, Sr. says:

    Media Matters has clearly violated its IRS 501 (c)3 status. It is my tacit recommendation that their tax-exempt status be reviewed and recinded.

  241. ray brock says:

    media matters should have their tax exempt status revolked.

  242. Chad says:

    Media Matters tax exempt status needs to be revoked! Especially if they’re accepting financial contributions from George Soros, who has made it clear in his efforts to sabotage the American economy by devaluing our U.S. currency that he is no less than an enemy of our United States, & given this current Administrations own previous conflicts with Fox news & now in light of Media matters declared war on Fox news, to believe there’s no coordinated combined effort between the two is disingenuous & naive! I’m an average American, & I’m tired since the election of this anti-American Chicago community agitator of constantly having to worry about this fundamental deformation he has initiated against our Nation as well as just trying to live my day to day life. I’ve never seen such unprecedented conflict & blatantly bold uprisings of communistic, marxist elements in this Country surrounding any President of the United States before, until this previously obscure, unqualified, & unaccomplished Senator from Chicago came along. Not to mention Obama having his own ties with Soros through undisclosed Presidential campaign contributions I’m sure!

    • Linda Lee Allen says:

      I love your comments. I totally agree with everything you have said. I live in Illinois and yet to figure out where this Obama came from not to mention all of his aliases and questionable social security card. No records of College and the recent appearance of the “birth certificate”. He is and enigma. I wish they would extracate Chicago from Illinois. Cook county runs our lives down states. We can thank them for our bankrupt state.

  243. Gary Simms says:

    Revoke meia matters tax exempt status.

  244. Ruth says:

    It’s about time that the IRS do something right for a change.
    Sick and Tired of changing channels of these left-wing ONLY telling lies,untruths and acting like a bunch of morons. Take their tax exempt status from them. If it wasn’t for Fox News we’d all be a bunch of mushrooms. I turned off ABC news, Good Morning America (first) as to all their nasty comments. Media Matters is just a hate group, on the same catagory as George Soros, who was kicked out of other countries doing dasterdly deeds and hateful things. What goes around comes around. Please review and recind Media Matters right to tax exemption and make it permanent.

  245. paulette currie says:

    I do not want my tax dollars supporting an organization like this. I think the IRS should investigate and discontinue funding for these people. They are a polital hack for the left and I do not support their tactics.

  246. when are the people going to catch on? Obama is a piece of work ihope all the people that put him know he will turn on all of us. he want to know every thing we it scares me

  247. Frank and Joanne Montesanti says:

    Enough is enough!The I.R.S.must stop using our tax dollars to support this organization.They are not a charitable organization but a mouthpiece for George Soros and his leftist groups.

  248. Jerry Jacona says:

    congress cut media matters now not yesterday

  249. nukeDC from orbit ... just to be sure says:

    MediaMatter has been in operation, and as an attack dog, for YEARS! Where was the IRS — ALL THIS TIME?

  250. William Hayes says:

    It’s appears quite clear that Media Matters is a political organization and not eligible for tax exempt status. Under Section 501(c)3 a tax exempt organization must avoid any appearance of engaging in political or legislative matters, including voter education or registration activities, which espouse the organization’s bias (verbal or written). Media Matters has clearly and unequivocally violated the Sect.501(c)3 requirements. Because Media Matters has declared “war on Fox News” an immediate and thorough investigation by the IRS must be instituted to determine Media Matters’ total conformance to Section 501(2)3 requirements for tax exempt status. A detailed report of your investigation and findings must be made public.

  251. Chris Meyers says:

    Please remove Media Matters tax-exempt status.

  252. carl brack says:

    MEDIA MATTERS CERTAINLY SHOULD NOT HOLD A TAX EXEMPT STATUS. THEY ARE LEFTIST TOOLS OF GEORGE SOROS. THEIR GOAL IS TO SILENCE FOX NEWS AS WELL AS SUPPORT A LEFTIST AGENDA. THE IRS AND CONGRESS SHOULD TAKE ACTION IMMEDIATELY.

  253. Kathie DelGuercio says:

    It appears that Media Matters is clearly an organization with a specific agenda, oftentimes anti-American, and should not have a tax exempt status. They have vowed a “War on Fox News” which clearly shows prejudice toward any diversity in thought and opinion. How can anyone have respect for the IRS if they allow their tax exempt status?

  254. Nancy Eckert says:

    Media Matters has a tax-exempt status? Where do I sign up to get mine? Hillary?…can you help me? Obama wants the rich to pay their fair share, but only the right-wing. Progressives want higher taxes, but they don’t want to pay them. Unbelievable!!!!!

  255. Dolores A. Narducci says:

    Media Matters is afraid of, and jealous of Fox News. They have become political and should not have tax exempt status.

  256. Linda Lee Allen says:

    I love Fox News. Fair and balanced all the way. George Soros has placed BO in the WhiteHouse to be his puppet. Mr. Soros is ruling the Whitehouse or shall I say his billions have bought the Whitehouse. He has become a frequent guest there. I find that very strange. Barack Obama needs to go, along with his suspicious friends. I say Media Matters need to be taken off the tax exempt status. Step away from Fox news and leave them alone. They are so anxious to silence Fox because they awaken Americans to what is happening. Another attempt to Socialize America and keep us under the government’s thumb. They are trying to take away our Freedom of everything. We need to stop these actions. Come on 2012 I am anxious to see this so called president gone.

  257. Jennifer Wilburn says:

    Please remove Media Matters tax-exempt status.

  258. Media Matters has engaged in bad faith. It continues to engage in strongly partisan political activities (soem of which are conducted over the air waves, no less) while it receives tax-exempt status as a supposedy educational foundation. Media Matters cannot have it both ways. Please divest Media Matters of its tax exemopt status immediately. Media Matters is a fraudulent tool used by George Soros to impose his globalist doctrine on the citiens of the United States. Enough!

  259. Orlando Reyes Jr. says:

    Bust those Bastards and make Soros pay through his @$$

  260. Brigitte Fell says:

    Media Matters exempt status should be revoked and investigated just like ACORN.

  261. Brigitte Fell says:

    Media Matters tax exempt status needs to be revolked

  262. Lois D'Amico says:

    Media Matters tax exempt status should be revoked as soon as possible. I hope they are investigated immediately.

  263. Anna says:

    Media Matters tax exempt status should be revoked as soon as possible. I hope they are investigated immediately.

  264. John Spero says:

    media matters tax exempt status should be revoked.

  265. Sam Toney says:

    With their agenda, they are a completly political organization with a one sided view and of no benefit to our soceity.

  266. Ron and Lisa Johnson says:

    REVOKE MEDIA MATTERS TAX EXEMPT STATUS IMMEDIATELY

  267. belinda henderson says:

  269. Monica D. says:

    Nothing Media Matters does is of a charitable nature…they should not be tax exempt. They can continue on their own.

  270. Bren says:

    I just want to know how we are going to save our country. Who is going to stand up and stop the madness?

  271. Marilyn Paul says:

    I resent tax payers dollars supporting a biased and partisan organization like Media Matters. Their tax exempt status should be revoked.

  272. Jean Giacobe says:

    Give the money to unemployment to the states for people to care for there families. Give to charities like American Cancer Society, Boys and Girls Clubs of America (your so worried about our children)Habitat for Humanity, invest in real History books of about our Nation. I was denied the real History. I never new there were black Founding Fathers

  273. lyn says:

    Tax payers dollars should NOT go to an organization such as MEDIA MATTERS which support biased and partisan organizations and are trying to discredit Fox News and republicans running for 2012 presidency. Their tax exempt status should be revoked IMMEDIATELY and the IRS should take a stand for what is right and not corrupt. I resent the IRS for doing this!!MEDIA MATTERS IS EVIL!!!!!

  274. Nancy W says:

    Instead of investigating media bias Media Matters promotes extreme prejudice against a specific political party and news network.

  275. Robert Decker. says:

    Tax payer dollars should not go to Media Matters which is biased and trying to put fox news out of business, and discredit republican
    presidential candidates running for office

  276. Regina Nataluk says:

    No tax payer dollars should be given to organizations like Media Matters or any other organizations that smear opinions of other Americans whose views are different from their own….This is still America when I last looked, and we have a free God given gift of free speech.

  277. Ernest says:

    Revolk their tax exempt status immediately, and investigate.

  278. Rita Rubin says:

    I hope this awakens the IRS–Media Matters must lose their tax exempt status and repay all prior taxes, as well as the other supporters who deducted this on their tax returns.

    Please Follow through

  279. BILL says:

    wow. thanks for doing this. I believe in free media but not media that steals from the public!

  280. [...] Pre-Filled for Media Matters: IRS Tax-Exempt Organization Complaint (Referral) Form 13909. [...]

  281. Larry Sparks says:

    Media Matters is nothing more than a propaganda maching for anti-american George Soros. George Soros should be deported for anti-american activities.
    It is requested that Meda Matters 501C status be terminated immediately.

  282. BILL says:

    I’d also suggest that all the visitors here, contact their Congressional representatives and point them to the MediaMatters website. I’ve never seen a ‘not-for-profit’ filled with such hatred for a media company. They have a right to their opinion but NOT on my tax dollar!

  283. Lorraine Bair says:

    media matter should be audited , and give the money back to the taxpayers

  284. Janice Rash says:

    Media Matters is overstepping their reach and is nothing more than a Liberal tool. They can declare all the liberal ideas all they want but please not on my “tax Dollars”. They should have their tax exemption taken away. ( the money should be given back to tax payers)

  285. Maddy says:

    I am so tired of the likes of Media Matters/NPR/PLANNED PARENTHOOD getting my tax dollars I could spit. NO MORE of our tax dollars to HATE-MONGERS or BABY KILLERS…ENOUGH!!!!

  286. AmericanPatriot says:

    Media Matters, George Soros and the whole damn obama administration need to move on to a country that supports their assinine ideas and policies. Just another movement to keep the American people in the dark while insanity takes over OUR country. God Bless America…..I don’t care if this statement is politically correct or not, my First Amendment in action!

  287. Charles Zito says:

    Please revoke Media Matters tax statis I do not want any of my tax money going to this left wing puppet….

  288. Rick Anderson says:

    contact your people in Washington and voice you opinion

  289. I do not want Media matters to receive any public money.

  290. Johm H. Reeves says:

    Please revoke Media Matters tax exempt status. I do not want any of my tax money going to support the socialist ideas.

  291. wayne davis says:

    time to get rid of all the corrupt dummycrat liars!

  292. Bill Whipple says:

    Isn’t it about time to remove Chicago politics from Washington and try abiding with the law of the land instead of stomping our laws into the ground and laughing at the rest of the law abiding members of this country?

  293. Sharon Shearer says:

    I listen to more than one news agency to compare what I’m hearing, and FOX is by far more “balanced”. I resent MEDIA MATTERS trying to undermine them and on top of that using a “tax exempt” status as they are doing their dirty work. Why should MY TAX DOLLARS go to this fraudulent company… Drop their status!

  294. snugsbear says:

    Obama is this the rich you want to tax? Or are the “Special”,

  296. Ralph Tutor says:

    I request charges be brought against Media Matters for violation of their charter in that they are biased and untruthful regarding Fow News.

    Additionally, I believe George Soros should be investigated regarding his attempt to control the Secretarys Of States in order to effect the outcome of elections.

  297. Ralph Tutor says:

    I request charges be brought against Media Matters for violation of their charter in that they are biased and untruthful regarding Fox News.

    They are all in it together

    • Belinda Lucki says:

      It just amazes me when I talk to so called friends and they slam me for actually believing in the Constitution! That is what this country’s center is. Let us clean D.C. out and take our country back from all of the criminals there!

  300. Santucci patricia says:

    THEY ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW !

  301. Ora Leverich says:

    I request that Media Matters exempt status is revoked immediately!

  302. B Lawson says:

    revoke their 501c3 immediately and investigate all of Soros’ enterprises for tax fraud! Do it, and do it NOW

  303. Pat Schoenfelder says:

    Media Matters needs to be stopped!! George Soros is everything the consitution abhores! The only time the Democrats say, “We are a nation of laws!” is when they are trying to defend some absolutely unlawful antic such as Media Matters and GE not paying any taxes. Wondering why I’m liable for tax payments when they aren’t. Hmmmm . . . I’m thinking we all know the answer to that!

  304. George says:

    I say if we go after them, let’s go after them all. These same laws apply to:

    Media Research Center
    US Chamber of Commerce
    Citizens United Foundation
    the Heritage Foundation
    the Cato Institute

    plus a lot more.

    Doesn’t seem so bad when the same type of tax exempt sites are financed by taxpayer money when it’s also finacned with Koch brother’s money and Richard Melon Scaife. The thing is, this is the system we have. If one side does it then the other does also. No one can be all “outraged” by what is allowed.

    Just my 2 cents

    • equaljustice says:

      2 cents? You get paid a lot more than that from Soros! I hope you don’t just claim 2 cents on your income tac like the rest of the swindeling liberals do.? These are the people who say tax the rich MORE and try to make sucessful business people the enemy. BUT then the same LIBERAL RICH are tax exempt and don’t want to pay their share?? Change your name from Democrat Party to HYPOCRITE PARTY and just get it over with!

      • Billy Joe Jim Bob says:

        You attacked George but didn’t address his questions. Would this be because he was correct??

        Republicans and conservatives – you can attack but never answer an articulate questions – so sad

  305. Michael A. Bigelow says:

    I request that Media Matters exempt status be revoked and prior year taxes refiled so they pair their fair share. Anyone who claimed them as a deduction should have their taxes recalculated also.

  306. Mac says:

    I pay my own taxes and do not rely on other peoples money. I had my own business and was not tax exempt. In fact, I paid alot of taxes for my business. Let Hillary Clinton and George Soros pay their own way, the same way we “All True Americans” do.

    Only the strong survive!!!!! NO MORE BAIL OUTS -

  307. Belinda Lucki says:

    I am disgusted with the bs as usual. We are not a socialist country, never have been never will. We all need to make sure when we vote that we make sure that this doesn’t happen again in our life times! Bless America and her strong ability to over come!

  308. equaljustice says:

    PLEASE everyone IGNORE GEORGEY.. He’s probably a paid SOROS TROLL. FILL OUT YOUR FORM AGAINST MEDIA MATTERS and help stop their corrupt liberal attacks on ANYTHING or ANYONE conservative! Go check out their site if you want to see how they lie and deceive! You will not believe that amount of hate you will see.

    • Kennith says:

      He probably is George Soros. If not then he is another liberal who thinks only liberals have the right to free speech and that only liberal organizations like Media Matters and there ilk should be tax exempt even though it’s illegal.

    • Billy Joe Jim Bob says:

      Make you a deal – if the IRS actually shuts Media Matters down and not any right wing sites that do the same, I’ll stop posting.

      If the IRS says what Media Matters is doing what is allowed, and this was just a stunt to keep you simple minded twits riled up and not focused on true matters needing discussion, then you will stand up and say “I was hoodwinked by the Conservatives cause I couldn;t think for myself”

      • simple minded twit says:

        bjjimbob(aka smart guy) it is obvious that you are passionate about you beliefs. I get that as I too am very passionate about the soverien nation of America. Perhaps you are sold on a united world or whatever.
        Not ONE of georges “listed orgs” have ever “attacked” one single television network. Koch brothers involvement or not. Mr soros has proven himself to be a cancer to the government of his choosing. At this time he has picked America. He is NOT ALONE in his mission to bring us down. Ever hear of rockafellers or carnegie and many more. The FED, the world bank and many others are working to CHANGE America. And not for the better! Both parties are working against us. Die fast(Democrats) or die slow(Republicans). The dollar is dying(of course that is great for george and the boys) 90% of all media is controlled by liberal minded money that could not care less about American patriotism. As a matter of FACT, the “death” of patriotism or national pride is one of their goals. As well as an end to traditional FAMILY values. It IS working. Need proof? Ride the subway. Watch NBC, ABC,CBS or
        comedy central, CNN, FX. Pretty much any channel on TV. Conservatives have ONE channel, FOX NEWS. Even the radio is dominated in “quantity” by liberal stations. The conservative channels that are available dominate the quality.
        If ALL the tax loopholes close for all the “huge money” foundations such as Carnegie, Rockafeller, etc and corporations such as GE pay their fair share of taxes it SURELY would help. Why has our president offered up 2billion dollars to brazil to drill in the gulf while banning Americans from drilling off our coast in the gulf? I wonder. It really is not rocket science but it sure is a mess! We need the good jobs that we lost to nafta. They aint coming back. The govt. has run off all the smart business. Why would anyone open a mfg plant in America with all the taxes and regulations when you can go to brazil or mexico or india or take your pick. Maybe you are wealthy or whatever. Good for you. A LOT of us need JOBS. HAPPY 4th of July weekend. May GOD bless AMERICA. I am not speaking about g.s. (GOD complex)

    I ask that the tax-exept status of Media Matters be investigated,then removed from exemption list and all penalty monies be returned the national treasury and applied to the debt.

  316. DRL says:

    It’s astounding that the dems constantly berail’BIG BUSINESS EVIL RICH GUYS’ yet here is one of the wealthiest U.S. haters ever (George Soros) yet again ripping us off with tax exemption status in cahoots with his White House Obama regime criminal buddies. It’s way past time for the IRS to strip them of this corrupt designation and get their thieving hands out of our pockets. It’s just like the Obama massive health care welfare bill slammed down our throats. WE KNOW IT’S NOT CONSATITUTIONAL AND THE U.S. SUPREME COURT BETTER GET IT RIGHT.
    Famous Thomas Jefferson Quote

    “God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.
    The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is
    wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts
    they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions,
    it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. …
    And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not
    warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of
    resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as
    to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost
    in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from
    time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
    It is its natural manure.”

    • Billy Joe Jim Bob says:

      How about this???

      Can you say any part of this is untrue??

      After The 8 Years Of The Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Get Mad and say Obama needs to follow the Constitution?

      You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

      You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq .

      You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

      You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

      You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us. You didn’t get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

      You didn’t get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.

      You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq .

      You didn’t get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

      You didn’t get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.

      You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

      You didn’t get mad when we didn’t catch Bin Laden.

      You didn’t get mad when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits.

      You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

      You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans drown.

      You didn’t get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the filthy rich, over a trillion dollars in taxbreaks. You didn’t get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.

      You didn’t get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance.

      You didn’t get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values.

      No…..You finally got mad

      When a black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick.

      Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick…Oh, Hell No!!

    Tell George Soros and his pals that they are no longer tax exempt for the hate they spew and the bias that is so obvious.

  321. Peter Ries says:

    I have watched the Democratic Party use illegal voter fraud to get their candidates elected from Acorn to now Media Matters tax exempt status. In America one of our freedoms is freedom to vote in our elected representatives. When you play games and they cross unconstitutional lines that is wrong. First Acorn then then the black panthers at the voting polls and NPR now Media Matters and John Stewart, what the hell is next. We need a “Swamp Draining” now. I refuse to give up my vote, I will stand…REMOVE TAX STATUS FOR PARTISAN GROUPS!

    • Billy Joe Jim Bob says:

      Wow – and I’ve watched the Republicans use push polls, voter caging, and illegally deleting names from voters rolls to get their candidates elected. And I’ve seen them push their agenda to more and more Corporate money in the systtem to benefit large companies and not the workers.

      One day you uninformed people (due to watching FOX) will finally wake up and realize the republicans have sold you out to the millionaires and corporations. When you do wake up and realize they have done nothing for ordinary working people please be as animated as you are against “made up” lies.

    I am requesting tax exemption be taken away from media matters.

    These extreme liberals (Progressives) only wan’t their opinions to be heard. Anyone with a contrary view they try to shut down. This George Soros guy (Spooky Dude) wants to destroy America as we know it. Many polititians have been bought by him. Media Matters also has been given money by Spooky Dude. They should not be tax exempt.

  324. I am outradge by their tax exempt. and we are paying them to go against american value they are a partisam group.they should have their free speach, but not at tax payer exspents.revoked immediately and all taxs paid back with intrest.no wonder our country is going broke this is the reason irs needs to go.

  325. Richard Paschke says:

    I want Media Matters investigated for tax exempt status fraud. Then check all of their donors, including George Soros.

  326. thomas says:

    OK. I admit it. I was posting for G.S. I have changed my mind. The other organizations I have been ranting about are not violating their tax exempt status. Media Matters is the only shovel ready project ( shoveling bullsh*t ) Obama could come up with. Media Matter should lose their tax exempt status and David Brock should do time.

  327. Donald Lamb says:

    Wh is our tax dollrs supporting a specific political point of view? What happenrd to fair and balanced?

  328. Robert and Audrey Cutler says:

    Smiply said, Media Matters is out to destroy Foxnews by lying and dishonesty. It is a biasis organization formed to promote liberalism and take down our American democracy. Media Matters should only tell the truth about what is happening in America, not be promoting their liberal and socialist views, they are definitely, not being honest with Americans and only promoting their personal agendas, therefore they should not be intitled to any tax exemptions, that taxpayer’s money pays for.

  334. Frank VA says:

    I’ve enjoyed all of the back and forth banter about Media Matters. But, lets get serious. I firmly believe they have overstepped their 501C3 tax exempt status in going after the Fox News Organization. Fox is the only place left on TV where you get truly fair and balanced news. We can surely see that George Soros has by the power of his financial enterprise has brought down many governments around the world. He actually brags about it. We have all seen the clips. His aim is to construct a “One World Order”. Why should we as taxpayers subsidize this organization, (backed by his organization)? If they succeed in silensing Fox. We are done as a nation, the Liberal Left Wing will totally control the media. God Bless Fox News! Incidently, my review of the banter makes me believe that the commentators George and Monty are probably the same person.

    • Billy Joe Jim Bob says:

      But is FOX really fair and balanced or is this just an opiionion (which is fine). All studies have found that FOX viewers are the most un-informed of world events. They only know the “FOX” view of events, and I would say it’s not fair and balanced.

  335. SHERWIN STIELOW says:

    On the subject of MEDIA MATTERS
    1. George Sores is way out in LEFT FIELD. He needs to be taken out of the WHITE HOUSE, and our lives.
    2. The IRA needs to investigate MEDIA MATTERS on their Tax
    Status.
    3. My taxes are for everyone. Not for a select few that are
    beside SORES, AND MEDIA MATTERS

  336. Javier Urias says:

    I filed my complaint, first thing this morning!
    I work for a nonprofit organization and we depend on awesome donors to help support our mission in the community. It is nonprofit organizations like this that give other nonprofits a bad name and make donors hesitate when donating their time and treasure to other great organizations.
    Nobody is saying that you can do which you do media matters, but you don’t deserve to have the nonprofit tax breaks or deserve to be called a nonprofit for that matter, for the material that you put out.
    Have a great 4th of July weekend everybody!

    Another example of Obama’s people using tax payer money to sway voters. The liberal machine will use all means possible to re-elect Obama.

  338. Helen Lancia says:

    Media Matters was not founded to put other organizations out of business this is a free market and by using the tax exemption it puts your company into another tax bracket which makes you not a tax free orginazation! Period, I will boycott your company and any company tied to yours and believe me the internet is a powerful tool.

    • Billy Joe Jim Bob says:

      You go girl – but they shut Glenn Beck down and put him out of business!!!!!!!!!!

      Is this why you are crying – boo hoo hoo – Glen is gone and I can;t think for myself

    ALONG WITH MEDIA MATTERS I WOULD CHECK OUT EVERY ORGANIZATION GEORGE SOROS IS INVOLVED IN, HE’S SCUM. IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THIS COUNTRY IN SUCH WORSE SHAPE, ELECT OBAMA AGAIN THEN YOU WILL REALLY SEE, BUT WILL BE TOO LATE THEN. HIS BUDDIES LIKE SOROS, GE CLOWN, WHY DONT WE TALK ABOUT HIM PAID NO TAXES PERIOD, BECAUSE OF YOUR PRESIDENT NOT MINE GREEN SCAM, HOW ABOUT BIG AL GORE TIPPER LEFT FOR A REASON, HE’S LOST HIS MIND, CHECK HIM OUT. HE HAS MADE MORE MONEY OFF THIS SCAM. THERE IS NO FACTS ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING BEING TRUE. WAKE UP LIBERALS PEOPLE ARE CATCHING ON, JUST AMATTER OF TIME.

  340. Charles says:

    By all indications, Soros is the big danger here. I believe that he and his European backers are actively involved in attempting to destroy the United States. He and his controllers have been sucessful over the years in the economic ruin of several nations (Poland, for one), and it appears to me that he is following the same plan against our nation. I believe him to be an Enemy of the State, and an immediate danger. Media Matters is another tool for them to use. Their biggest and best tool to use against us are the millions of dim-witted, self-centered and shallow citizens of this country who are too lazy to bother to educate themselves. Does anyone know that he is a turncoat Jew who worked for the Nazis during WW2? The man is a beast and,again in my opinion, should be in a cage.

  341. Genie Melton says:

    George Soros needs to know he can’t buy this country or it’s representatives.

    • Billy Joe Jim Bob says:

      Correct – only the Koch Brothers can

      And you can’t deny this – they have tape recordings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  342. Myrna Price says:

    The way Media Matters is using the tax payers money is totally against the law. They have the right to free speech but cannot claim charity exemption when they are so clearly with the people who work for them a political org. The rest of us who tried to pull this would end up in court with the IRS there should be no difference for this group of law breakers. I want to see the IRS do their job and protect us the people of this country who pay our taxes from those who would miss use the system like Media Matters.

  343. Elizabeth Shepherd says:

    This country is being destroyed by George Soros so he can bring about his plan for a New World Order. He funds a long list of subversive organizations. It is time to use the law to stop him.

  344. earl fowler says:

    stop him

  345. Frank VA says:

    Hey Billy Joe Jim Bob: About your comment about how ignorant Fox News viewers are. Have you noticed that comments like that are totally unfounded? They never quote the source of their comment. It is such a Cheap Shot. That is such a Left Wing Liberal Tactic. I Challenge you BJJB or George or whatever name you are using this afternoon to a dual of news facts. I think we will both learn Garbage masquerading as news that you wouldn’t recognize a real news story if it ran you over.

    God bless Fox News! Without them we wouln’t know just what these evil people have in store for America.

  351. the administration is talking about raising taxes on corp. airplanes. well how about tax exempt org. that ought not be tax exempt like media matters, AARP. the list goes on and on. This adeministration only looks right to raise revenues instead of doing the elected job and being The President of the United States. arthur j. zelenak

  354. Margaret Losyk says:

    George Soros is spending millions (perhaps billions) of dollars attempting to shut down Fox, the only fair and balanced network. Wake up IRS and do the right thing. Stop Media Matters and their hate speech. If they continue to receive government monies then surely, there is no justice.

  355. Charles Watkins says:

    Revoke Media Matters Tax Exempt status> They have intentionaly started political attacks on Fox news, exceding the tax free mandate.

  356. Tracy Jett says:

    The IRS can’t wake-up. It is a puppet of whoever is the current puppet master, a tool that can be used and abused.

  357. Mignonne Matheson says:

    Take away their tax exempt status. They should pay taxes!

  358. Media Matters and Soros have been desensitizing Americans to the real truth. They are working to destroy America and have make us a Third World Country. Soros, Obama and the Democrats are a “shovel ready” project – a shovel to the head. Wake up America, connect the dots, and seek the truth.

  359. janice says:

    The IRS needs to do their job and revoke tax exempt status for Media Matters. Taxpayers should not be forced to subsidize an organization whose sole purpose is to attack Fox News.

    Media Matters should definitely lose their tax exempt status. Why is there a question about this anyway?

  361. Bob and Sue Burke says:

    We the American people have to take a stand, our nation is deeply under attack and we have to remember our founding Fathers and what they stood for. We need to become united and raise our flag proudly and fight against the George Sorros’ of this world. Fox news and Glen Beck is our light into this dark world, were behind you l00%. Keep up the good work///

  362. Lawrence Perry says:

    Media Matters must lose their tax exemot status

  363. jim campbell says:

    Media Matters and billionare Sorios / Clearly should NOT continue to be allowed to spending our tax dollars (by getting a tax deduction from the IRS ) to promote their purely political / anti fox news / agenda

    The IRS OK of Media Matters tax deduction represents some very clear cut – & blatently obvious political favoratism = corruption…when it involves the ‘news’ information that ‘we the people’ get — or we don’t get
    it’s serious.
    As with so many other examples of corruption – i.e. Acorn corruption and our tax dollars are being used to support corruption – if it weren’t for Fox News -
    these blatent examples of fraud,corruption and of our tax dollars being tossed down a rat hole – would go unreported…

    would never really be seen or heard by ‘we the people’
    as even the actions of ‘our’ IRS works to keep it all under the rug.

  364. A. Hutchinson says:

    IRS – Remove Media Matters from their 501(c)3 exemption status! They are in violation of the IRS laws as it affects the current exemption. Should you choose not to inforce the law as demanded by US Citizens, then it is obvious that the IRS has been “bought off” as well! Glenn Beck is absolutely correct when it comes to people like Soros who can wheel our justice system because of extreme wealth. This man would be classified as a “Communist” 50 years ago and would be proscuted for his actions, but not today! DO YOU JOB IRS – REMOVE MEDIA MATTERS TAX EXEMPTION STATUS!!!

  365. Blenda says:

    Media Matters is utilizing funds made available to them by every tax paying American in a way that is not congruent to the laws
    regulating a 501K(c)3. Their tax exempt status should be
    questioned, investigated and revoked.

  366. frank hill says:

    stop the exempt status to media matters. this is type of program undermining this countries freedoms

  367. Flora Quinn says:

    Remove Media Matters tax exemption status.

  368. Marie Reynolds says:

    The Fox network is the only voice for conservative, decent, sensible, patriotic people like myself, my husband, my friends,
    and my fellow Americans to speak up against a dictatorial group
    like the Obama adminstration with their crime-ridden Chicago
    motives and strategies.

    I know because I lived in crimeful Chicago myself for several
    years through the twisted Daley years.

    Media Matters and David Brock are all out of the same mold.
    Why should they NOT pay taxes??? They should pay double, for
    trying to destroy FOX – the only decent news organization in this
    country. Their liberal views will destroy our country. Think
    of our grandchildren and our future generations. They will have
    to live under this crooked administration or one like it if we
    do not get rid of Media Matters. We CANNOT LET THEM DO THIS!!!
    WE CANNOT LET THEM SUCCEED. MAKE THEM PAY TAXES!!!!!!!!!!!!

  369. Mike Daugherty says:

    Stop funding the liberal agenda with tax payer money.

  370. first of all there breaking the law, they need to be closed down and there should be a full investigation they should check why george soros is funding this tax exempt site i think he and bama are trying to breaking this great country, if obama has four more years they will do just that.

  371. gloria crane says:

    I vote to revoke Media Matters tax exempt status. The comments from these liberal people to this website shows what a dangerous and unpatriotic world we now live in. Fox is the only decent news organization in this country and believe me I have tuned in to all of them. God save us!!

  372. rif says:

    It’s ironic that IRS just removed tax-exempt status from some 275,000 organizations, yet they gave 501(c) (3) status to Media Matters. Media Matters is nothing more than a mouth-piece for
    George Soros who is here to destroy our American way of life. Simply look at Media Matters for America’s web site and you will quickly realize that their mission is to “control” politics by fabricating falsehoods. Their progressive lobbying agenda does not qualify MM as a tax-exempt organization.

  373. Leonard Urso says:

    Stop the funding of liberal agendas with our tax payer money. This type of bias must be stopped NOW !!

  374. I want the IRS to make an investigation into the media for all the negative comments about Fox News. They do not need to get our taxes to operate, they have George Soros for that. Please start an investigation ASAP. Thanking You, Ethel K. Taylor

  375. Thomas Wilson Sawyer says:

    I am opposed to this org. using tax exempt status for pure political games.

  376. Pat says:

    I wish to file a complaint to the IRS re: Media Matter tax exempt status. This is not a “charitable organization”. I do volunteer work and the organizations I work for help people, not try to destroy a Legitimate tax paying business.
    I do not want my tax $$ used to destroy a business paying taxes.
    Doesn’t George Sorus have enough people working to get rid of Fox News? Could his money be better spent funding organizations that help people? There are SO MANY charities that need funding. Maybe food kitchens for example? George doesn’t really seem interested in helping people, just destroying people. And he is using Media Matters. Sad, sad, sad.

  377. Bill Moore says:

    Media Matters of America’s attack on Fox News demonstrates that it no longer qualifies for IRS tax exempt status.

  378. Gino Testone says:

    get the bums out. I do not want my tax dollar toward media matter. They are biased toward liberals.

    A proud American

  379. Mary Anne says:

    Media Matters needs to stop receiving tax free status.. They are a tax heaven for George Soros and his other liberal cronies..
    GO FOX NEWS!!!

  380. Ginny Bermudez Lendennie says:

    I am sick and tired of all our wastefull tax money, and Media Matters is one of those instance, stop our tax money for this bias media.

  381. Arlene says:

    I would like to register a complain and ask that the Irs investigate Media Matters and revoke their 5013C status.
    What they are doing is criminal.

  382. Bill Motley says:

    Stop the tax dollars from going to Media Matters. Now.

  383. Dave and Connie Marcus says:

    We vote to revoke Media Matters tax exempt status. We agree with Glenn Beck, he is right about Soros who is manipulating our justice system because of extreme wealth. The IRS’s job is to REMOVE MEDIA MATTERS TAX EXEMPTION STATUS!!! If you choose not to inforce the law as demanded by US Citizens, then why should we pay as citizens pay taxes for services that deny our freedom.!

    Fox is the only decent, honest and informative and balanced news organization in this country. God save us and Bless America

  384. Susan G Benware says:

    stop the bucks

  385. Dorothy Strahan says:

    This infuriates me that for years there has been this attack from the inside on America. And to think they use our Constitution for their agenda. I not only want but demand and expect the IRS to remove their tax-exempt status. I can only imagine what the IRS would do to me, the wife of a retired Vietnam vet, if I broke one of their thousands of regulations. I wish there was some way charges could be brought against these people who have made it their mission to destroy this country I love. The ACLU is another one I think of.

    George keeps writing that Heritage and other organizations should be investigated. I don’t think they have as an agenda to silence media that doesn’t agree with them.

  386. E. Dwight Lindsey says:

    When a football team’s coaching consists of nothing more than telling his players to do two things; 1) score and 2) win, The team will become frustrated and surely lose.

    The same applies to “We the People.” When an audience is informed of government deficiencies and are asked to take action without clear instructions, failure is to be expected. However, if the guest suggests clear,precise and proven steps, viewers may take action and the people may prevail. If guests do not offer instructions, the host may wish to discuss the WHAT and How that viewers may take.

    If you agree, please pass this on.

    E. Dwight Lindsey

    • Dashaun says:

      Yes sir! O.K. coach whats THE game plan or plan of ATTACK?
      First of all, media matters has violated the LAW and very
      arrogantly at that! They can spew all of the venom they wish, JUST NOT ON THE TAX PAYERS DIME!
      Second, Mr soros past actions speaks for him, (check for yourself) he has even verbaly admitted much of his intentions. No surprises from him. g soros is BAD for ALL Americans, even the brilliant folks who agree and defend him. (kind of reminds me of another evil deceiver)!
      Third, WE are like a speed bump to these RICH powers that exist to take down the GREATEST nation on the planet. Sounds like the original war when a bunch of poor, rag tag patriots took on the Awesome power of the king of england and was VICTORIOUS!!!
      So, coach or perhaps “general”, what is the 21st century plan to STAY a soverien nation and defend the U.S. CONSTITUTION!!!
      NO SARCASIM INTENDED, THIS IS SERIOUS!!!

  387. bridgettebardog says:

    I want my share of the taxpayer money back!

  388. The left and their ilk are a cancer and a blight upon the free world. I have stated many times our liberal public education system always glorify anything on the left. Well it doesn’t take much brain power to think about the left and their close relationship to socialism which is related to Marxism and finally Communism. Media Matters should loose their tax free status and we should remain vigilant because Soros and his bunch are as we speak forming a new organization to continue their perverted actions. we need to be there when they raise up to stamp them out.

    • Bill & Martha Ausmus says:

      The IRS must investigate and put a stop to Media Matters using our tax dollars to fund their war against Fox News Network, and supporting their liberal agndas. Sincerely, Martha and Bill Ausmus

      Reject media matters tax exemption and send soros to mexico.
      Audit the fed and lets stand up for the U.S. CONSTITUTION!!
      Lets bankrupt time magazine!

  389. Jim says:

    I also request that Media Matters exempt status is revoked and charges for prior taxes be repaid.

  390. William Edward Johnson says:

    It’s time we all step up to the plate and bring our government back to the time when the people were what the country was all about. It seams all that matters now is what favors can be done in exchanged for votes. Lies and corruption isn’t what our fore fathers fought and died for.” UNITED WE STAND ” Three very important words.

  391. JoeAstroturf says:

    Great job we’ll end the Media Matter tax free bucks Thanks. Fox eventually will be the only news left and George Soros or a liberal Muslim Brotherhood loving President will be able to force us to watch the fringe media that no longer reports news as they take our country away. On the blogs you get real news at Drudge , GatewayPundit, Human Events. Daily Caller. Townhall, Blaze, Mediate and Politico lean left but put both sides of the story on also.
    Please Check out song called teapartiers I can’t hear you at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJfboOindCo

    Here’s a verse

    When he lost his commie czar it must have knocked off his socks
    theirs actually someone reporting news but its only Fox
    he still has another czar Chavez loving lloyd
    he’s busy trying to make free speech null and void

    Corpsemen in the 57 states as your dying
    Jeff Jones will be laughing so much he’ll be crying
    now you know why they had you read that death book
    don’t you wish you had money like Rangle the crook
    you invested 50 years to safe guard your health care
    Nancy gives it to illegals and thinks that its fare

  392. Bill Walker says:

    Yes, I join the other millions of Americans that are sick and tired of the Liberal, Secular , Hummanist , Left Wing lying slants.
    File charges against Media Matters A.S.A.P. and count on my support anyway that I can provide it !
    If it weren’t for FOX NEWS we would all be fed lies all day….

  393. Richard Stinespring says:

    If a Conservative did what Media Matters is doing there would be hell to pay.

  394. Ronald Welsh says:

    I,along with others ask the IRS to investigate Media Matters and
    stop its using tax -payer doolars to conduct a war against Fox News Channel.

  395. GARY DOWELL says:

    I,along with others ask the IRS to investigate Media Matters and
    stop its using tax -payer doolars to conduct a war against Fox News Channel.

  396. bob freshcorn says:

    no tax exempt organization should have anything to do with politics. when soros is involved you know its just another left wing organization trying to ruin the united states.

  397. Roger A Young says:

    Get rid of the IRS. We don’t need them… Tha is not thier job..

  398. Lila says:

    Media Matters is a BIASED WEBSITE supported by George Soros and our Tax dollars. Make them pay taxes like any other opinionated organization. They should be punished for going after fox news.

  399. Juanita pick says:

    Media matters should be fined and lose tax exemption forever.
    All immigration must stop until we get our country under control.
    Obama wants to give the illegals a free ride to college for votes. No!!!!! They are what is driving our hospital, drug bills up, what they don’t pay the hospitals just charge to a person with insurance & Medicare.

  400. leeparker says:

    I THINK THAT MEDIA MATTER IS A NON PARTISAN ORGANIZATION AND THEY ARE BEING VICTIMIZED BY FOX NEWS BECAUSE FOX SEES THEM AS THE ENEMY. I SUPPORT MEDIA MATTERS COMPLETELY

    • Dashaun says:

      Yo lee, They can mouth off ALL they want, But not on the tax payers dime. You support soros and if he has his way YOU as well as the rest of us will SUFFER for it. HA, HA thats real D@#N smart. Does this sound familiar to another evil deceiver? Sure does to me, Does satan ring any bells to you? Probably not.

    • victor amor says:

      the proof that media matters is partisan is as clear as a bright day……you have not been reading what they are saying publicly.

  401. Carol says:

    We are a Country that follows the Constitution, anyone who doesn’t like it is free to leave and this organization is working to tear down that structure while maintaining a tax exempt status, it needs to stop NOW.

  402. K Diek says:

    Aljazera – Qtar based, distribute lies and false images from arabic cointries the opologises for such events.

    This corrupted TV channel, who at one stage was trusted by ordinary people, spread hatred, destruction and animosity between people of the same country.

    Aljazeera -STOP your lies.

  403. K Diek says:

    Aljazeera – Qatar based, distributes lies and false images from arabic countries then opologises for such events.

    This corrupted TV channel, who at one stage was trusted by ordinary people, spread hatred, destruction and animosity between people of the same country.

    Aljazeera -STOP your lies.

  404. Robert Evans says:

    media matters is breaking the tax law…make them pay take away their tax exempt status

  405. marty clark says:

    Please investigate the allegation that Media Matters is a biased and left-winged based organization and not the objective watchdog group they claim. Certainly it is in their rights to blast anyone they wish….BUT NOT WITH TAXPAYER DOLLARS!!!

  406. Dennis Maloney says:

    Please discontinue using my tax dollars for Media Matters.

  407. denise nail says:

    media matters should have their tax statis sould be revoked because of their bais against republicans

  408. denise nail says:

    media matters should have their tax statis sould be revoked because of their bais against republicans, stop the lies,my taxes should’nt be used against me

  409. Jesse says:

    Media Matters should be stripped of their tax exempt status. PERIOD!

  410. Theresa Ertle says:

    Make them pay taxes.

  411. Duane Heieren says:

    Hold their Feet to the fire.

  412. Kenneth Ashley Sr. says:

    I wonder if Rush has to pay taxes on his broadcasting income. If so, then Media Matters should also. But I’m sure that the Obama/Soros administration would never allow their political agenda be bothered by the laws that they are dictating to us. Remember to celebrate the true meaning of Independance day. And pray that people like the Obama administration follow the U.S. Constitution that they took a sworn oath to uphold. Those that don’t should be tried for treason!

  413. Johnny says:

    as a free country we should have the right to choose our political parties no one should be able to attack the freedom with free tax payer money. that is one of our problems with the debt now too much free money. please stop this attack at taxpayers expense.

  414. Paul D. Ziegler says:

    Please stop using tax dollars to support Media Matters.

  415. Mark Ward says:

    By law, an equal amount should be spent on any opposition. Where is that money now? Media matters should be made to repay this money.

  416. steve says:

    this stuff must stop

  417. Maher Habashi says:

    Should not be tax exempt and should pay taxes retroactive.

  418. Ingrid says:

    The IRS has a legal responsibility to examine Media Matters tax exempt status as an educational institution.

  419. Phil says:

    In a free society, liberty can only be achieved if the expression of opinion is accessible to all, on the same bases. The support of any and all organization wanting to express an opinion must come from private funds. The government through taxation cannot be partisan. The government is obligated to be neutral. In the case of “MediaMatters” for America, the government treatment is not neutral and represent a bias that is not acceptable. The tax exemption must be removed.

  420. John says:

    It’s time for Media Matters to pay!

  421. EdnJeri says:

    All of these corporations and organizations that are getting these tax breaks need to be investigated and if they are not doing what their contract calls for then they need to be shut down and fined. There is far too much of this going on in this administration with nothing being done or the administration protecting them because they contribute to their funds. Shut this Media Matters down now.

  422. Irene Hashway says:

    Media Matters is extremely biased & should not be funded with our hard earned tax dollars. If they want our money then they need to follow the paper work they originally filled out, instead of misleading the government & the people. I think we have heard enough lies, may the truth be told.
    MEDIA MATTERS SHOULD NOT BE FUNDED, THEY SHOULD STAND ON THERE OWN OR LOCK THERE DOORS.

  423. Anthony Selino says:

    Media matters stands for “moral relativism” not life..big centralized Federal gov’t and appeasing dictator-like governments….no thanks….I love and cherish out 2 great charters of freedom!!!

  424. Norma K says:

    Is Media Matters so afraid of the fair & balanced reporting of Fox News that they feel the need to attack the same free speech that they enjoy? They have violated the rules, should be investigated by the IRS and immediately lose their tax exempt status.

  425. Betty says:

    MediaMatters is breaking the law in waging war on Fox News. It is my belief that they should NOT be funded with our tax dollars!! They need to be denied tax exemption status immediately.

  426. RONALD JOHN RUSSO says:

    IF EVER AN ORGANIZATION WAS MISS-NAMED, IT HAS TO BE “MEDIA MATTERS”. IF MEDIA REALLY MATTERED TO THIS,OBVIOUS,LIBERAL ORG. THEY WOULD BE ATTACKING THE N.Y.TIMES, MSNBC AND CBS, AND NOT THE FOX NEWORK. THE FACT THAT GEORGE SOROS,AMERICA HATER SHOULD GIVE YOU SOME IDEA ABOUT WHETHER MEDIA REALLY DOES MATTER.PHONIES,FROM THE WORD GO!IT”S OBVIOUS THE TRUTH IN REPORTING UPSETS THESE CREEPS.

  427. Jim Cap says:

    If you’re going to revoke the tax exempt status of Media Matters then you’ll also have to revoke it for the many conservative organizations that have received it for years.

    Do you really want to do that?

    Or, are you just saying that only conservative groups should be allowed tax exempt status?

    • Dashaun says:

      What laws have these “conservative” orgs. violated? Mediaobviouslydoesnotmatter, has violated the law by taking tax money from ALL of us U.S. citizens, (including those of us who believe the CONSTITUTION STILL MATTERS!!!) and attacked a private company simply because FOX NEWS is FORMIDABLE foe with a different view. Why would a soros org. attack only FOX NEWS? Simply because the TRUTH hurts! I dont care what ANY org. says, just NOT ON THE TAX PAYERS DIME!
      You libs are so ready to shrink away and give some silly a$$ reason why you are right to give up your freedoms. What is up with that? Soros will eat you for breakfast. He will eat us ALL if we let him. Mediawhatever is just one of his MANY weapons and people like you are one of his little pawns. You think you will get a seat at the table? You will be ON the table under the covered dish! soros is only ONE of MANY ELITES who conspire against us. WE HAVE GOT TO BE UNITED!!!!!!!

  428. teddy may says:

    by all mean s they need to be investagated or put out of business. and since mr soros hAtes this country so much he should get the heck out of here, and leave this nation, and take the libs with him

  429. Dale Bishop says:

    This is just another example of the government attacking the people.

  430. William Pinkston says:

    There is a big difference between freedom of speech and rewarding an openly biased political organization to attack the freedom of speech of those with differing viewpoints. I believe that organizations like Media Matters should not only be required to pay taxes like other for-profit organizations, but should also be required to pay back taxes, late fees and penalties the same as I would if I presented my claims frauduantly.

  431. Allen Meadows says:

    I am sick and tire of these liberal “nazi” organizations that use federal tax dollars to shut people up…if Medial Matters wants to continually push a liberal progressive agenda …let these people do it with money collected by like minded people…hopefully people and organizations will start suing this defamatory organization every time they put out false information to marginalize others without the truth to back it up….they are nothing more than a one sided lying propaganda machine and we as tax payers should not support it ….

  432. Bill says:

    I think any group who receives tax exemption should automatically be reviewed EVERY year to see if they still qualify.

  433. Nick Bautista says:

    I say Break Up the Union into Conservative States & Liberal/Leftist States!!!

    • Dashaun says:

      Would never work.
      The left would be broke in 10 years or taken over by russia or perhaps mexico. You can only spend other peoples money for so long.
      Although, I do like the ideal of dumping their drag a$$e$ off. It would be a GREAT experiment and probably cost a LOT LESS than the stupulis did.

  434. Bob denton says:

    Soros and all his supporters should be deported to the country of their choice where living is better than the USA.

  435. Victoria Dunham says:

    Any group who is participating in tax exempt status with the US Government should not be involved in any way in politics. Media Matters is a radical left organization geared to promote Pres. Obama and shut down or shut up anyone who disagrees with his politics. This is not what the organization is supposed to be about. They are using falst and defamitory information to shut down anyone who they dislike. This is not part of the law that governs them. Therefore, they should not have tax exempt status.
    They should not be using federal funds to promote propaganda of this sort and they should not be eligible for further funding.

  436. Kathy says:

    What is really scary is that we have to ASK the IRS to do their job!! We should kick them AND media matters out!!

  437. Aubrey Biehn says:

    Media Matters is politically biased and should not receive any of our tax payer dollors. They should be reviewed by the IRS.

  438. Maj. Jimmy L. Dull says:

    I am sick and tire of these liberal “nazi” organizations that use federal tax dollars to shut people up…if Medial Matters wants to continually push a liberal progressive agenda …let these people do it with money collected by like minded people…hopefully people and organizations will start suing this defamatory organization every time they put out false information to marginalize others without the truth to back it up….they are nothing more than a one sided lying propaganda machine and we as tax payers should not support it

  439. Dakota says:

    Why do some laws get overlooked by this Administration while they write rules that favor their political base while destroying private sector companies and jobs? The tax exempt status for Media Matters is a sham and just fires up the Tea Party Movement- Nov 2012 can’t come soon enough.

    • Dashaun says:

      Yo Dak, so they can get at least 51% of the voting population “brainwashed” to be willing to give up things such as right to own personal property, the right to bear arms and most all of thier freedoms. Let the united nations impose international laws upon American citizens, which of course means giving up national soverienty. The elites would rule us ALL as SUBJECTS! Raise our children where and how they wish, which of course means destroy our family values. And dont forget we would be taxed, taxed, taxed! Sounds GREAT! F*(K that and time magazine. THE CONSTITUTION STILL MATTERS!!!

  440. Paul Richard says:

    Media Matters tax exempt status should be revoked.

  441. Judy Moore says:

    Media Matters is violating IRS regulations for a tax-exempt organization. Donors are getting a tax break on their donations to an organization whose primary goal is to attack Fox News.

  442. Karen Friggle says:

    Media Matters is violating IRS regulations for a tax-exempt organization. Donors are getting a tax break on their donations to an organizat9ion whose primary goal is to attack Fox news.

  443. Louis G. Dubost, Jr. says:

    We just celebrated the birthday of our country for independence and freedom of speech. Men and women have served their country and died to protect the U.S.of A. We have liberty and the right to express our opinion—protected speech—so why in the world should totally liberal organizations with anti-American ideals be supported by our tax dollars. Media Matters is just such an organization. I believe their tax exempt status should be revoked a.s.a.p.

  444. Jennifer Clark says:

    Media Matters is violating IRS regulations for a tax-exempt organization. Donors are getting a tax break on their donations to an organization whose primary goal is to attack Fox news.

  445. Painesville says:

    Media Matters should not get any tax breaks. They are a liberal only group out to get conservatives. That is not even what the media is suppose to do, aren’t they to report news. They claim to be a watch dog on the media, there are lies on all the other networks where is their comments on that.

  446. Gary says:

    I would have never thought I would have ever seen in my lifetime such a corrupt government (or media) (under obama) in America as the one we all are currently struggling to get through. Hopefully the people of America will learn how liberals really are against everything good America is supposed to stand for. All of the bootlicking media cowtowing to a single person (obama) because they are afraid of him ruining their businesses, oh how pathetic America is for electing this IDIOT TRAITOR. But I am sure there will be schools named after him just like the anti-American IDIOT TRAITOR woodrow wilson. I cannot tell you all how I desparately wait for America to return to some semblance of normalcy. As far as media matters is concerned, I beleive they are working outside of the legal envelope and should be dealt with accordingly for using tax dollars for illegal activities and I also think that whatever source is allowing them to do this should be imprisoned for their wrongful actions including possible embezzlement charges if at all possible.

    • Dashaun says:

      Makes me sick too! I dont know how these folks get elected. I suppose we buy the B.S. If the new majority want this kind of “communistic” type of joke government, they deserve what they get. I only hope that I am worm dirt before the u.n. or muslim brotherhood or what ever takes over. They will regret it!
      Tax exeption for mediajokematters is a bad joke! Boycott time magazine. THE CONSTITUTION STILL MATTERS AND ALWAYS WILL!!! I cant wait to see very last copy or “end of time” magazine.
      Lets get rid of the anti american con artist president in 2012.
      Lets make America the most inviting country on the globe to open a company and/or start a business.(reduce corporate taxes and regulations, A LOT!)
      CLOSE THE BORDER!!!
      CUT SPENDING!!! CUT THE B.S. SPENDING!!!
      Create JOBB, JOBS, JOBS!
      BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!!! I am only one person and these things are my opinion and amount to nothing more than an electronic blog. WE MUST BE UNITED! IT IS THE ONLY WAY!
      Just listening to the news about the debt ceiling and oil. The president wants to RAISE taxes and the REPUBS will NOT have it as they want to CUT spending.
      We have more oil than Saudi Arabia and WONT EVEN TAP INTO IT!
      That is INSANE!!!
      Very concerned American!!!

  447. Bill Clamp says:

    Like many others I am sick to my American core: listening to a liberal U.S.President using the power of the office and Democrat cronies, to allow tax deductions that assist Media Matters and other lopsided organizations to promote a socialistic agenda with no concern for truth. This practice must stop.

  448. Lyle Jones says:

    Media Matters is politically biased and should not receive any of our tax payer dollors. They should be reviewed by the IRS.
    What is really scary is that we have to ASK the IRS to do their job!! We should kick them AND media matters out!!

  449. Daniel A Henry says:

    Media Matters should very obviously not be tax exempt based on their stated goals and their demonstrated activities against only conservative media.

  450. Valerie Tarantolo says:

    This is disgraceful. Media Matters is a sleaze organization fleesing American taxpayers. These creatures of distruction must be stopped and the IRS must put an end the Media Matters tax exempt status.

  451. Denise says:

    I don’t particularly like the IRS forcing us to pay for something we are unaware of that we’re paying. This is America, not China, Russia or some other third world country. The IRS should be checking into George Soros, Oprah Winfrey and the rest of them.

  452. Lee says:

    The government continually uses our tax dollars illegally and this Media Matters subsidy is just another example of misuse of tax dollars. This organization and others like them should immediately stop receiving tax dollars. Tax dollars come from ‘everyone’ not just from the people who hold their views. NO tax dollars should be used in a partisan way. But what else can we expect from the loons in DC? They choose not to listen and no one does anything about it – Are you listening Justice Department? Do your jobs losers!

  453. Larry Colclasure says:

    This is a disgrace! Media Matters is a left-leaning organization who deserves NO tax money!!

  454. Sheila says:

    This is a disgrace! Media Matters should get NO tax money!!

  455. frederick goetter says:

    we need to defund Media Matters .

  456. Andrea Ciserella says:

    Media Matters should not have tax exempt status because anyone can see how bias they really are and especially against FOX NEWS Please defund Media Matters!!!!!!!

  457. Ron E says:

    Media Matters is another national joke, a very bad one, and so is Soros along with the Unions and the entire liberal establishment. They should be defunded as a charitable group and anyone who believes in their Communist propagands is either stupid or is really a subversive at heart who should be deported.

  458. Esmeralda says:

    If they can’t be fair and balanced, they should not be tax exempt!! Period

  459. Anthony Storace says:

    MediaMatters should not be tax exempt.

  460. victor amor says:

    I do not care what hate they spew or sabotage they plan AS LONG AS PUBLIC MONEY IS NOT INVOLVED……period.

  461. thomas cummings says:

    i don’t want any of my money going to any organization that i won’t support

  462. Jim Heron says:

    Media Matters is THE MOST BIASED WEBSITE supported by George Soros and our Tax dollars. Make them pay taxes like any other opinionated organization!!!

  463. Walter bodman says:

    Revoke their tax exempt status

  464. Alice Hill says:

    I want the IRS to investigate the MediaMatters tax status and have their tax exempt status revoved or being bias. The American peoples’ money should be used for true charitable organizations. And definitely believe George Soros needs to be investigated for all that he seems to be connected to. Tired of watching American’s hard earned money being misused.

  465. Dree Mary Dodds says:

    Media Matters has a right to say anything they want if they are funding their own opinions. I have a right to watch Fox News and they don’t ask for public funding. Why is it that my tax dollars are given only to organizations with a left agenda?

  466. Jo Schoolfield says:

    Absolutely!!! Media Matters should have their tax exempt revoked. They are only supporting a leftist agenda. Thank God for Fox News. The only reliable news source that is available and is not biased. I especially like Steve, Gretchen and Brian on Fox and Friends in the morning. They are quite a team and keep us well informed about matters such as this.

  467. Gary A. Hopper says:

    Media Matters should have their tax exempt revoked.

  468. Thomas B. Keeley says:

    I do support revoking Media Matters tax exempt status. Why should we pay for these people to bash Fox News or anyone else for that matter. I hope Fox does file a complaint.

  469. William Dixon says:

    Media Matters and the far left skips what is going on in the White House. Example. why does Barak Huisen Obama,Oops, forgot, the President doesn’t like his middle name mentioned. Why does Obama turn his back on Israel? Why does he want to divide Jerusalm and give it to the Pallisteinians? And he says he is a Christian? Says who? The Bible clearly says those countries who bless Israel will also be blessed. This is why America is in a crises now because of this far left socilist President. why does’t Media matters cover stories like this?

  470. Connie Wilbourn says:

    Unlike media matters, I am witnessing free speech as I read these comments. I tried three different times to post a comment on the media matters site, but was told my comments would have to be reviewed before posting.Needless to say, my comments were never posted because I did not say what they wanted to hear. This tells me that they are indeed biased against conservatives and should have their tax exempt status revoked.

  471. Wayne Ruppe says:

    Media Matters and all the rest of the Soros funded organizations are attempting to co-op this government for his own personal use. He is worse than the man who spared him from the furnaces in Poland. Obama is just one of his pawns who does his bidding for a fee. Watch out for both of them. They have the same goals. Unlimited power!!!!
    If Obama could get away with it he would be another Dictator in the mold of Chavez. He hates our Nation and all the freedom loving people in it! To all those who follow his lead he only uses you to get power. He hates you too and you are expendable to him when he is finished using you. Soros’s Media Matters should not Tax Exempt. We should not help those who would do us harm. If we had a justice department Soros would be investigated for sedition and Obama for treason.

  472. Kevin Smith says:

    This is outrageous! I don’t want media matters to have my tax dollars. I now hate media matters.

    You can read an interesting article on this subject “Is Media Matters Breaking the law in its ‘war’ on Fox News?” The article strongly suggests that Media Matters is violating its exemption as an educational foundation by actively participating in partisan political activities. Specifically the IRS application for 501(C)(3) tax-exempt educational foundation status, Section VIII, Question I asks the applicant: “Do you support or oppose candidates in political campaigns in any way?” (Emphasis added).

    The Internal Revenue Service has a complaint form 13909 Tax-Exempt Organization Complaint (Referral) Form that is one page in length. The form comes with easy to follow instructions and then can be mailed, faxed, or emailed to the IRS office.

    I have taken the liberty to complete the initial heading of the form to include Media Matters for America’s mailing address and tax ID number in order to assist any submitter with completing the complaint form. You may download this form here.

    I do suggest that you familiarize yourself with the IRS guidelines for 501(c)3 organizations here although this is not necessary in order to complete the form.

    REVOKE MEDIA MATTERS 501C TAX-EXEMPT STATUS. THEY ARE BIASED.

  484. Ken says:

    One of the problems with Fox News coverage of this is they are not backing up their claims with any specific information. They are taking edited video and small sounds bits to make their case. If just some republican’s on this blog (who do not have an axe to grind) actually read through Media Matters web site, you will see that they do back up their information with evidence based journalism. Whether someone is a republican or a democrat does not matter to me. What matters to me is that we as a people do not let opinions and anecdotal evidence cloud the facts. To obtain facts, you must dig as deep as you can go. Watching MSNBC or Foxnews for an hour a day will probably not provide you with to many real evidence based facts. It is sad that the media makes more money on hype and opinions (which leads to higher ratings) than on an old dusty thing called “journalism”.

  485. Bill Wigginton says:

    Having been on the board of directors of two 501C3 organizations, we were very careful to keep all politics out of our fundraising, our events and presentations, because we knew that if we were to acomplish our goals, we could not take sides on anything other than what we were raising money for which was one, a National War Dogs Memorial, and two, the Alabama War Dogs Memorial. Media Matters should lose their 501C3 designation and be investigated for criminal wrongdoing. Not only are they heavily biased against Fox news, they are not consistant in their articles, comments or opinions. They are against anyone who has opinions or thoughts that are different than their left wing bias. God Bless America, we do not need organizations like this to bring our nation together, they are tearing us apart.

    The IRS must tax this kafed 501(c)3 fraudulent organization called Media Matters. It is run by communist, marxist liberal thugs, all on George Soros’ money. They must pay tax, and all retroactive, late taxes due, along with interest and penalties. Please investigate, NOW!

    I sm tired of this in fighting and this news organization that is paid by me, a tax payers, should not be taking sides and should not be getting a tax break in any way shape or form for fueling this fight.

  491. Bev erly Wideman says:

    It’s obvious that Media Matters has strayed from their originally stated purpose of providing unbiased information to the public. Now that they have clearly defined their mission as being solely partisan…by their own words…they have given up any rights to be classified as a non-profit organization, and thus any claim to be tax-exempt. As you have done in the past with at least one conservative group you decided was partisan, you must deny them their tax-exempt status, effective immediately.

  492. Deb Troutman says:

    Eliminating waste and fraud can save the U.S. billions of dollars. Let us end benefits such as this and collect tax dollars from them.

  493. Pinky says:

    How many sending in complaints, because of encouragement from Fox News, looked closely at Media Matters and researched what they claim? Or is it a matter of: “Fox News say bad! – must be bad.”

    Perhaps it is time to come together as a nation. I am not saying anyone should change their opinion, all I’m asking is to hear the other side out without the hate, preconceived notions and name calling both sides burden themselves with. I am not suggesting some kind of big love-in where group hugs are the norm, I am suggesting listening to the person with the opposing opinion and asking questions until their position is understood. You may find the viewpoints not as far apart as assumed and compromise can be reached.

    The polarization of political thought in America is reaching dangerous proportions. People are being killed and property is being damaged for nothing more than ideas. Keep in mind there are a sizable amount of unstable individuals in our society who will grasp a strident message and act upon it.✛

    Question everything your hear or see in the media, no matter the slant it is presented in (yes, all media is slanted to some extent – even Fox News). Don’t take anything at face value, research, see what the media that slants the other direction says about the item, however; always think for yourself!

    It is patriotic to question how America operates. Its the only way improvement will be made, however demonizing the opposition will only lead to strife.

    (✛ No I do not think pundits have a direct responsibility to action taken by crazies who claim to be inspired by the pundits.)

    I am sick of hearing people fight over Bush did it. Stop fighting the nsunami is coming and everyone is acting like a bunch of kindergarten children fighting over a ball. We all need to save this country. Both parties have been involved in growing government. Reagan who I voted for grew government, Lindan Johnson grew government leaps and bounds, Bush grew government, Democrat congress grew government. The only President who did not grow government was Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich. So we are screwed all of us. The game is over and none of you realized the utter hunger, misery, and poverty America will be facing. There will be NO medicare, there will be NO welfare, there will be NO healthcare. We have all been living high on the hog with entitlements. when 52% of Americans don’t pay taxes and the top pay them all as we hand out drippings to our constituants what do we expect. I have no seen a true conservative in the last 40 years Not one person believes in limited government, freedom, and very low taxation. Instead both parties want big goverment for their pet projects. It is disgusting. I am leaving America because we are morally bankrupt and spoiled. No one believes in the values of America anymore.

  502. I DONT WANT MY TAX DOLLARS GOING TO MEDIA MATTERS .IF I CAN PAY MY TAXES THEY SHOULD HAVE TO PAY THEIRS. THAT ALSO IS THE SAME FOR ENERAL ELECTRIC ,THAT MADE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND PAID ZERO DOLLARS IN TAXES.HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE.

  503. Anon E. Mouse says:

    Wait a second.

    (1) Tax-exempt organizations lose their status for supporting or acting in opposition to a candidate or an organization that supports or opposes a candidate.
    (2) Media Matters is acting against Fox News.
    (3) Media Matters should lose it’s tax exempt status because it is acting against Fox News.

    For (3) to be true, Fox News would have to support or oppose a candidate. However, this goes against the stated beliefs of Fox News, namely that
    (4) They are fair and unbalanced, which is to say that they are non-partisan.

    (3) and (4) cannot be both true. Either Fox News is a partisan organization, in which case Media Matters should lose tax exempt status _or_ Fox News is non-partisan, in which case Media Matters should not lose tax exempt status.
