REPORT: Media Matters ‘built on anti-Christian bias’

Media Matters for America, the Obama administration-affiliated think tank that has been under fire for anti-Israel bias, was reportedly fashioned to be an opponent of Christianity, according to its tax filings.

CBN News’ Erick Stakelbeck reports:

As part of its strategy, Media Matters frequently targets Christian organizations in an effort to counter what it views as pro-Christian "bias in news reporting and analysis by the American media."

"It is common for news and commentary by the press to present viewpoints that tend to overly promote … a conservative, Christian-influenced ideology," the group said in its application for non-profit status with the IRS.

David Brog, the executive director of Christians United for Israel, told the publication that MMFA’s anti-Christian views are likely tied to its anti-Israel bias.

"They want to take on what they see as a Christian-influenced media and Christian-influenced policy, and no better place to start than with the issue of Israel and with attacking U.S. support of Israel," Brog told the outlet.
