I guess David Brock has a stenographer at Yahoo News.
A liberal advocacy group is launching a new initiative through its nonprofit arm that will monitor conservative outside organizations and think tanks, Yahoo News has learned.
The American Bridge 21st Century foundation, a nonprofit group, is running the the new program and operates alongside the Democratic super PAC American Bridge. The new program, called the Bridge Project, will conduct research into a nationwide network of conservative think tanks, advocacy organizations, super PACs and tea party groups. The operation is headed by David Brock, founder of the liberal media watchdog group Media Matters.
The aim is three-fold: The Bridge Project plans to operate as a source of rapid response to political ads launched by Republican-friendly outside groups, track donations to these groups from conservative donors by reviewing tax filings and other public documents, and serve as a research organization that will file regular public policy briefings.
The group, which has directed research teams to build databases on several conservative groups, will use the website BridgeProject.com to disseminate the information. The new site will regularly highlight ads from conservative groups and detailed profiles on the individual donors who fund them.
Sounds rather intimidating. I guess after enough prodding these deranged lefties will start harassing donors. Which is what these bullies want.
Of course conservatives are fair game, but in what can only be called monumental hypocrisy, these thugs are shielding their own records.
And even though American Bridge supports legislation that would force politically active nonprofits to reveal more information about their donors, the group does not release the names of its own.
It’s time a conservative group “targets” David Brock and exposes him and his donors. Two can play this game.
