James Rainey, Brian Stelter Get the Bill O’Reilly Treatment


The Daily Caller‘s Tucker Carlson went on The O’Reilly Factor to talk about his latest “investigative” scoop. That would be his story on how various left-leaning columnists across America receive and report, without attribution, “propaganda” directly from the liberal media criticism site Media Matters. Among those with a propaganda inbox are LA Times media critic James Rainey and New York Times media writer Brian Stelter. Interestingly, Carlson’s story doesn’t cite a single example of either writer using Media Matters content. Instead, Carlson’s anonymous “insider” sources tell him they do.

Quite the scoop.

We reached out to Rainey to ask about his Media Matters-propaganda-using-ways, but haven’t heard back yet.
