Left-wing "media watchdog" group headed by David Brock and funded with money from George Soros and others. Their overall goal is to stifle debate through the usual "liberal" practice of calling people 'racist" and the like. Their entries frequently have a pompous, faux-academic tone, a tone that the contents of those entries rarely if ever live up to. Some of their entries about anodyne comments from their opponents leave even those on their side scratching their heads wondering what was wrong about the comments that MMFA was shocked - shocked! - by.
