Consider the Source … Girl Scouts of America Tell Kids to Go to George Soros Funded Far LEFT Media Matters Web Site to Clear up any Media Misinformation & Media Bias
Looks like an end to buying Girl Scout cookies, and I loved the “Thin Mints” and “Do-si-dos” and “Samoas” so.
The Girl Scouts of America have much explaining to do. It appears in their published book called MEdia, tells impressionable girls from 6th to 8th grade that if they have questions regarding the media stories, misinformation and media bias to go to the Goerge Oros funded, Far LEFT Media Matters web site as one of the primary sources for debunking lies. ARE YOU FRIGGIN KIDDING!!! It is obvious that this organization is finished. A note to the Girl Scouts of America, maybe you people might want to consider the source as well!
From The Blaze:
In 2010, the Girl Scouts of the USA published a book called “MEdia.” The publication, designed for girls in grades six through eight, is a guide that apparently offers insight into how young people should process and understand the media messages surrounding them.
Considering the pervasive nature of popular media, this seems like a viable tool. However, there’s a problem — the book refers young readers to Media Matters for America as one of the primary sources for debunking lies and deceit.
On the surface, “MEdia” seems like it’s an excellent resource (and in some ways maybe it is) that encourages self-reflection and skepticism — two very understandable and useful tenets. But on page 25 of the book, a very curious recommendation is given.
The page in the Girl Scouts publication Under the headline, “Consider the Source.” Maybe the Girl Scouts of America might take their own advice and consider the source of MEDIA MATTERS?
The Internet is a breeding ground for “urban legends,” which are false stories told as if true. Next time you receive a txt or e-mail about something that seems unbelievable, confirm it before you spread it.
The fact-checking site snopes.com investigates everything from urban legends to “news” articles and posts its findings. Media Matters for America (http://mediamatters.org/) gets the word out about media misinformation.
Media Matters enjoys a comfy tax exempt status under the guise of this mission statement. However, as stated at Big Government, their manner in doing so should be LEFT-wing propaganad in its own right. QUESTION FOR THE GIRL SCOUTS OF AMERICA … SO YOU ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN ONE SIDE OF MISINFORMATION?
Media Matters for America is a Web-based, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.
Call, write and email the Girl Scouts of America and ask them just how a far LEFT group like MEDIA MATTERS happen to find its way into their organizations publication. They can be contacted HERE.
As stated at Wizbang, what do you think the MSM’s reaction would have been if Rush Limbaugh or NewsBusters was used by the Boy Scouts of America as a media bias tool? Hmm?
