Media Matters for America (MMFA) founder David Brock refused to talk to the Washington Times affiliated radio show America’s Morning News on Tuesday morning about the series of stories The Daily Caller has been reporting on for the past week regarding his organization’s aggressive plan to go after the Fox News Channel. 


According to the Media Matters documents obtained by the Daily Caller, part of the 2012 strategy was to treat the cable news channel like a political opponent and hire private investigators to look into the personal lives of Fox News employees who work both on the air and behind the scenes.

The ultimate objective, according to the documents, for MMFA is to make the channel come off as an illegitimate news source to potential viewers who may have no opinion of Fox while pushing mainstream news outlets to treat the network as illegitimate as well.
