The Obama administration attack dog Media Matters is attempting to shut down free speech by spending $100,000 dollars on radio advertisements in an effort to get Rush Limbaugh off the air in a staggering display of contempt for the first amendment.

“The ads use Limbaugh’s own words about student Sandra Fluke, who told congressional Democrats that contraception should be paid for in health plans. Limbaugh, on his radio programs, suggested Fluke wanted to be paid to have sex, which made her a “slut” and a “prostitute.” In return for the money, he said Fluke should post videos of herself having sex. Under sharp criticism, Limbaugh later apologized,” reports the Associated Press.

The ads, which will run in eight major cities, encourage listeners to call stations which carry Limbaugh’s show and complain about his remarks. Using an approach similar to that which ran Glenn Beck out of Fox News, Media Matters is clearly trying to create momentum behind booting Limbaugh off the air altogether.

This represents a revolting attack on the first amendment. Media Matters has proven once again that its sole purpose is to crush the free speech of any broadcaster who dares to challenge Obama’s big government agenda.

Should we really be surprised given the fact that Media Matters is nothing less than a propaganda front for the White House itself?

As we have documented on many occasions, in addition to new information gleaned by the recent Daily Caller investigation, Media Matters is an Obama attack dog. When you’re attacked by Media Matters, you’re being attacked by the White House itself.

The Daily Caller exposé revealed that the organization conducts “a weekly strategy call with the White House” and that an Obama administration representative meets with Media Matters reps at the Common Purpose Project meeting at the Capitol Hilton on 16th Street in Washington every Tuesday evening.

“Media Matters has been in regular contact with political operatives in the Obama administration,” states the report. “According to visitor logs, on June 16, 2010, (David) Brock and then-Media Matters president Eric Burns traveled to the White House for a meeting with Valerie Jarrett, arguably the president’s closest adviser. Recently departed Obama communications director Anita Dunn returned to the White House for the meeting as well.”

Media Matters brags about how it works with the White House to control big media networks. “We were pretty much writing their prime time,” a former Media Matters employee said of the cable channel MSNBC. “But then virtually all the mainstream media was using our stuff.”

    If you are interested in credibility, you should not post rabid ridiculous articles like this one.
    Removing a person from radio programming for slander and defamation- both of which Rush Limbaugh does on a regular basis- DOES NOTHING to his first amendment rights. If he were to lose his entire hold on every radio station in the land, he STILL WOULD HAVE ALL OF HIS FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS! He would be allowed to shout and yell any and all of his racist and violent views on any street corner he pleased- therefore, he would STILL have all of his first amendment rights. GET IT?
    Now stop echoing the rabid-right-wing gibberish on your publications.
    You are beginning to sound like yet another rabid-right-wing outlet.
    Already, the rabid-right-wing owns just about all of the talk-show slots on American radio, having deprived the rest of America of voices of sanity anywhere.
