Robertson to Horowitz: There's "sort of a shadowy group called Media Matters. Tell me about that one"

Appearing on the August 24 edition of the Christian Broadcasting Network's The 700 Club, right-wing activist David Horowitz joined host Pat Robertson in smearing Media Matters for America and billionaire philanthropist George Soros. In discussing Horowitz's new book, The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Sixties Radicals Have Seized Control of the Democratic Party (Nelson Current, 2006), Robertson asked Horowitz to discuss the "sort of a shadowy group called Media Matters." Horowitz responded, claiming: "I've been attacked for many years. I have never encountered a group with lower ethical standards than Media Matters." Horowitz and Robertson also attacked Soros, repeating the baseless slur that Soros, a Hungarian-born Jew, collaborated with the Nazis as a 14-year-old boy. Horowitz also claimed that the newly launched Colorado Media Matters was part of a Soros plan "to take over the political structure of the United States." Read more
