11. I think the thing about Media Matters
is that it feels fragmentary. They are covering all of the usual right-wing a-holes, and because that is a big job, there are lots of stories everyday.

But MWO was somehow able to string together cohesive narratives, showing just how corrupted individuals and "tall tales" got. They had a way of putting all the facts together into a good, albeit frustrating story.

Media Matters just feels like a laundry list to me - I hope others like it and use it as an important resource.
