If you can't control the message...

...then attack the messengers.

(from Politico): Media Matter's war against Fox. 

These folks can't compete in the marketplace of ideas, and with the new media's insistence on doing the job that other networks are supposed to be doing, they never will be able to compete.

So...the new strategy is:  ignore the stories, but try to destroy the people reporting them.  Nice.

Media Matters at least provides a glimpse into thugocracies like Venezuela, the People's Republic of China, North Korea, Iran...

In fact, they'd feel right at home there.
