Media Matters lies about HA's response to Jamilgate  —  Here's what's cooking on their front page as I write this.  I'm surprised they used a good photo of Michelle; the official left-wing Malkin-as-hate-object signal is one of those goofy screencaps from her appearance on Hardball.

Media Matters Distorts Something (Yawn)  —  Media Matters's front page has a graphic that states: "Warbloggers refuse to admit their errors in making fraud allegations against AP."  Here it is:  —  Interestingly, the post of mine that they highlight is this one, titled "Media Matters Isikoffs See Dubya."
