Shorter Media Matters:

The prog lap-bloggers at Media Matters have pinched off a loaf of hackery in defense of the Justice Department’s seizure of Associated Press reporters’ phone records.

A coalition of media organizations issued a letter protesting the DOJ’s actions.

But not Media Matters, no sireee. The Soros-funded group responded with talking points “for those interested in pushing back against partisan attacks while the rest of us grapple with the larger questions.”

Larger questions like … whether mom will bring extra cookies to the basement when she delivers your lunch today?

Daily Beast reporter Eli Lake took Media Matters to task on Twitter.

Has Media Matters stopped mattering for the media?

Reminder: Media Matters Action Network isn’t just a mouthpiece for the Obama administration; It’s a 501(c)(4) nonprofit group.
