First he points out that "What began in 2004 as a ten-person shop with a $3 million annual budget now has around 90 employees and plans to spend $15 million this year." That is striking and demonstrates the enormous fundraising operation that they have created. But that is not translating into readers. With that budget and staff, they should be about the size of a site like Politico, but the numbers tell a far different story. According to web traffic evaluator, Quantcast, Politico averages 5.6 million monthly unique visitors, Media Matters a mere 646,200. Even if you give Media Matters the benefit of the doubt and double that number, they are still doing a fraction of the traffic of sites its size (at 1.3 million, it would still be far smaller than little Mediaite, with ten times the staff). That’s something that clearly should have been pointed out in the story.
So there you have it. I've been fact-checking a supposed bastion of progressivism/liberalism that has alot of bark but very little bite. Concurrently, I've now got bigger fish to fry.
See, I recently applied to be an Examiner for examiner.com, and luckily for me, I was accepted. However, in order to grow my following as an Examiner (or even just to write, edit, and publish articles), I must shift all the time and effort I have devoted to MMFA Fact Check and focus on my new path as an Examiner.***
If you were a follower of MMFA Fact Check, I encourage you to engage with me as I continue to write lively political articles. As of the publishing of this (final) post, I've only written and published one article, but I plan on writing at least three articles per week from here on out. None of my articles will be more than 400 words, and they will (should?) be much more professional looking than what I've presented here on MMFA Fact Check. So if I've bored you to death with my epically long posts, and if my shoddy (but functional) writing style turns you off, rest assured that neither of these things will be the case as an Examiner.
Of course, the 277 previous posts that I've published will still be here for your viewing (and mine), but no new content will be published. I officially made this decision last Wednesday, May 25th, and naturally, I waited three days to make it public. I've also become a tweety bird, for whatever that's worth.
That is all.
Adieu and Good By!
***Not that it matters to you how I discovered examiner.com, but I feel obliged to quickly share it because it directly relates to a national story that I feel very strongly about, a story which I will delve into in some detail.
I discovered examiner.com via reading this article by the U.K Daily Mail, and I would just like to say that the story of Alexandra Wallace and the hell she's been put through is one of most despicable examples of political correctness in the history of the world.
Allie is an innocent, 20 year old, breathtakingly beautiful young woman who once encouraged her readers to help the Haiti relief effort (which is oh so typical of a racist bitch, amirite?). The fact that she was a bikini model who was scheduled to be in the audience of the Jersey Shore reunion show tells me that she had a yearning to be wanted, to be accepted, to be appreciated, to be admired, and yes, to be loved.
Then in that infamous video, she does that thing at 1:31 where she swings her shoulders in an apparent attempt to jiggle her boobs a little bit (yes, I know she could have just been adjusting herself to make herself comfortable). And seconds later, she leans forward (knowing she's wearing a low cut top) and stays that way for nearly ten seconds!
Look, I'm no player, but I've seen many a girl with a generic look on her face who will cross her legs in JUST a way or will lean forward in JUST a way that guys can get the absolute perfect view of her "goods." It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that these girls aren't flaunting their stuff just so they can get guys to droll. Nor does it mean they are being slutty. Girls who do that want attention, and not attention for attentions sake; attention because they ultimately want to be loved and accepted.
I don't know Alexandra and never will know her, but given the things I mentioned about her, she seems to be absolutely desperate for acceptance and love. She's not a KKK racist looking to exterminate Asians, she's just your sweet, bubbly, girl-next-door who wants what everybody wants seemingly stronger than most people want it.
On top of that, she seems to have a deep insecurity. Just look at what she says about herself here:
"After learning that the Envy Push Up was designed to increase bust by two cup sizes, I had to try it out for myself. After receiving my brand new red bikini, I immediately put my non-existent cleavage to the test."
"If you are like me, the most painful part about swimsuit shopping is finding a swimsuit that gives the same support as a bra, without those ugly under-wires. For someone who lives in Victoria Secret’s miraculous push-ups, also designed to increase your bust two-cup sizes, putting on a delicate spandex bikini top with no padding is not even a consideration."
Alexandra was seemingly already in the mental frying pan to begin with, and now, a HORDE of pussyfied and/or far left hypocrites has reduced her to this:
"When I ran into her in Westwood after the video went viral, she had the look of a trauma survivor in her eyes, while being escorted by a male companion for safety. According to some friends in the dorms, her parents came to stay with her to protect her while she stayed there, and she had to take her exams alone and privately, before she eventually withdrew in shame from UCLA."
The Satanic viciousness and the hell-like gnashing of teeth that she has received is an abominable example of what political correctness and the so-called "anti-racism" crusade has done to this country. The term "white guilt" was invented for horrors like this.
Moreover, it's a testament to Alexandra's internal emotional strength that she hasn't committed suicide, cause she has to be the most depressed person on planet earth right now. She probably thinks no one loves her and everyone hates her. She must burst into tears at the very thought that any potential employer can do one google search and use it as justification to not give her a job. She has been mentally tormented and tortured in ways that only a person who's been depressed and who's attempted suicide can understand.
And all this because she made a light-hearted ribbing of people from Japan. She didn't even use cuss words much less racist terms like "chink"! She is a classy, WELL-MANNERED young woman, and she's being treated like she's a Nazi.
God damn those have tormented her and psychologically terrorized her to hell.
And God damn political correctness to hell.
