Oppo. Targets Journalists, Too

This recent article in Politico describes the coming war between Media Matters and Fox News.

Opposition research not only provides fodder for political news stories, but is now being used as a tactic within media circles-- certainly a consequence of the polarizing tactics of networks such as Fox and MSNBC, which have made commentary and punditry their bread and butter.

"The group, launched as a more traditional media critic, has all but abandoned its monitoring of newspapers and other television networks and is narrowing its focus to Fox and a handful of conservative websites, which its leaders view as political organizations and the “nerve center” of the conservative movement."
