The fascists at Media Matters for America (MMfA) never tire of their war on free speech. All views on the right are labeled by the George Soros-funded group as conservative misinformation, i.e. hate speech.
Now these cretins are trying to stir up xenophobic hatred towards News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Australia. It's the same kind of tactic they routinely accuse conservatives of.
An email just went out from MMfA with the subject line, "Not in America, Mr. Murdoch."
It refers to the News Corp. hacking scandal way over in Britain. MMfA smells blood in the water and wants to use the scandal to shut down News Corp.'s most valuable property in America, Fox News.
Here's the email:

Subject: Not in America, Mr. Murdoch

One of the great things about our country is that no matter how powerful and influential you are, you are not above the law.
No one knows that better today than Rupert Murdoch after the FBI launched an investigation into claims that reporters at News Corp. tried to hack into the phones of 9-11 victims' families.
If true, it's shameful, and the FBI has taken a good first step. But it's not enough. We need a thorough probe from Congress and the Justice Department to understand just how far the lies, illegal practices, and damages go.
DON'T LET RUPERT MURDOCH ESCAPE THE TRUTH!
SIGN OUR PETITION DEMANDING A FULL, PUBLIC INVESTIGATION.
We saw the British spend 6 years waiting to hold Murdoch accountable for these offenses. In those 6 years, there were 4,000 victims, including a terror victim, politicians, celebrities, and a 13-year old teenager who was tragically murdered. Why did it take so long? Because Murdoch is so powerful that people were afraid to stand up to him.
Not here. In the last 48 hours, over 100,000 people have signed a petition for thorough investigations and members of Congress from both sides of the aisle have stepped forward in agreement. We can't stop now.
If you'll stand with Media Matters, America's premier media monitoring organization, we won't let Rupert Murdoch escape the truth.
Let's get at the truth. Join in demanding a full investigation into whether News Corp.'s corrupt behavior extended to its U.S. holdings.
When the most powerful news organization in the world is rocked by a scandal this serious, all of us have a deep personal stake in exposing the truth and making sure those responsible pay the consequences for any wrongdoing.
You have my promise that Media Matters will stay on the case until we get to the truth.
President and CEO
