‘WE HAVE DOCUMENTED COORDINATION’: MEDIA MATTERS HEAD ALSO RUNS PRO-OBAMA SUPER PAC

By  Mytheos Holt

July 19, 2012

Outside the fictional universe of HBO’s “The Newsroom,” Media Matters for America is pretty universally agreed to be a far Left pressure group disguised as a media criticism outlet. The group’s stated mission to take down Fox News doesn’t help matters, of course, nor do its alleged anti-Christian and anti-Semitic biases. And that’s not even getting into the erratic behavior of the organization’s head, David Brock.

Yet still, the group is treated with some degree of fear, if not respect, simply because of its strong-arm tactics. Brock himself, however, is still considered fair game, and now that he has assumed leadership of the pro-Obama American Bridge Super PAC, he’s likely to be a target of criticism and investigation for some time. Fox News opened fire on Brock today in a segment on Fox and Friends, featuring Daily Caller editor Tucker Carlson.

“We have documented coordination between Brock and the White House, and yet he’s also running this Super PAC,” Carlson said, suggesting that Brock had broken the law prohibiting coordination between a Presidential campaign and its Super PACs.

“That’s a clear violation of campaign law, isn’t it?” Host Steve Doocy asked incredulously.

“There’s clearly coordination, and you can say, ‘Well, that was in my capacity as the head of another organization.’ Okay, but you’re still in regular contact, coordinating a message, and I think that’s a problem,” Carlson responded.

Carville: David Brock Driving Obama Bus

July 17, 2012

By Elizabeth Sheld, Breitbart.com

On Sunday’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos, James Carville revealed that Obama’s SuperPACs were driving the recent attacks against Mitt Romney and Bain Capital:

One of the big things that has happened in this campaign is kind of surprising [crosstalk] we thought that the Citizens United was going to help the Republican SuperPACs because they were going to have so much money [crosstalk]. The surprising thing of this campaign is that the Democrat SuperPACs have been more influential thus far, Priorities USA, American Bridge. They have driven the debate in this campaign much more than the Republican SuperPACs. Now whether that continues through September and October, I’m not willing to say. But as of July 15th, it’s the Democratic SuperPACs that have basically driven this whole Bain/tax returns whatever it is. For better or for worse that is what happens.

Once upon a time, Obama fought against the influence of big money in politics. In 2010, for example, he berated the Supreme Court’s Citizen United decision in his State of the Union speech, claiming it would “open the floodgates for special interests… to spend without limit in our elections.”

But this past February, Obama began singing a different tune, encouraging wealthy donors to support his SuperPAC. On Obama’s website, Campaign Manager Jim Messina wrote, “the campaign has decided to do what we can, consistent with the law, to support Priorities USA in its effort to counter the weight of the GOP Super PAC… Senior campaign officials as well as some White House and Cabinet officials will attend and speak at Priorities USA fundraising events…”

This isn’t the first time Obama has strategically – hypocritically – shifted his position on campaign fund-raising. In 2007, he proposed a voluntary agreement between the party nominees to limit fund-raising for the general election. Then, not quite so nobly, he abandoned that promise when he realized he could out-raise Republican candidate John McCain and went on to become the highest-fundraising presidential candidate in history.

David Brock, head of the Media Matters empire, is treasurer of Obama’s SuperPAC, called American Bridge 21st Century. That PAC has now joined forces with PrioritiesUSA SuperPAC, headed by two former Obama Administration officials.

Brock’s American Bridge PAC is a 527 organization. By law, a 527 organization must disclose its donors.

***NOTE***

In the FEC filing, David Brock is listed as the Treasurer.  The founder of the organization is ALSO THE TREASURER?

Is this so David Brock can funnel money from Media Matters into American Bridge 21st Century without questions being asked about this?

Excerpt:

The committee was founded by David Brock, a reformed conservative who started Media Matters, a group that monitors Fox and other conservative media.

The PAC, in turn, follows Republican and conservative politicians. When Sen. Scott Brown attacked Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren on earmarks, the PAC published his own promise to “continue to bring home the pork.”

American Bridge videographers track GOP candidates around the country, hoping to capture any “macaca” moments.

The PAC reported raising $3.7 million and spending $2.9 million last year.

A Muckety map of Big donors to American Bridge 21st Century shows some of the most generous, most connected contributors. (We recommend looking at the larger version, where you have more room to expand and move relationships.)

Major donors include two bundlers for the 2012 Obama campaign – Wayne Jordan (see above reference to Akonadi Foundation) and Paul Egerman.

Unions such as the AFL-CIO, AFSCME and SEIU have also supported the PAC’s efforts. Other contributors come from the entertainment, tech and financial sectors.

Several heirs are also on the list, including Agnes Gund, former president of the Museum of Modern Art, Anne Earhart of the Getty family and Robert McKay of the Taco Bell fortune.
