New Watchdog

From this piece in the New York Times, we learn of David Brock’s new web venture: Media Matters for America, a site with a substantial research staff that “will document and correct conservative misinformation in each news cycle.”

Since April 24, the site has already taken on misleading statements and outright lies by the likes of Chuck Scarborough (twice) Bill O’Reilly (three times), Townhall columnist Doug Giles (twice), Matt Drudge, Bill Kristol, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh (three times), Sean Hannity, Bob Novak, Linda Chavez, and others.

Sample catch: Linda Chavez, denying that she had called John Kerry a “communist apologist,” just four days after she had done exactly that, twice, in a nationally syndicated column.

Take a look.
