Image source: Wikimedia Commons BY ZACH TOOMBS Conservative blog The Daily Caller is calling out Media Matters. Tucker Carlson — the blog’s editor and a Fox News contributor — reports the liberal watchdog group Media Matters for America considered launching an all-out campaign against Fox News. He spoke to Fox’s Steve Doucey on Tuesday about e-mails obtained by The Daily Caller. “This is a plan to discredit Fox in the eyes of its viewers. And one of the ideas in this memo is to send private investigators to look into the personal lives of Fox News anchors, reporters, staff.” The Daily Caller’s report relies on anonymous sources — current and former Media Matters employees, Carlson says. And it centers on an email sent from Media Matters contributor Karl Frisch to the organization’s head — David Brock. The Daily Caller reports, in that email, Frisch lays out a series of ideas to humiliate Fox News, including: “... ‘detailed opposition research’ on the network’s staff and executives, attacks against Fox News employees on Facebook and other social media, mailing anti-Fox News literature to their homes and placing ‘yard signs and outdoor advertising in their neighborhoods.’” On its own website, Media Matters has plenty of firepower aimed at Fox News but no response to The Daily Caller report as of Tuesday evening. But Mediaite**** quotes another unnamed source from Media Matters, who argues The Daily Caller report is suspiciously timed near the release of Media Matters new book -- a book that calls Fox a “propaganda machine.” “... [the report] comes one week before our book, The Fox Effect comes out, and Tucker Carlson is a Fox News contributor. This is an anonymously-sourced Daily Caller story, and that’s how we’re treating it.” Tuesday’s report was just one installment in a series. The Caller also reported Media Matters coordinated with several well-known reporters, including former POLITICO scribe Ben Smith. According to the Caller, one unnamed former employee of Media Matters said: “ ‘Ben Smith [formerly of Politico, now at BuzzFeed****] will take stories and write what you want him to write.’ Staffers at Media Matters ‘knew they could dump stuff to Ben Smith… so that’s where they sent it.’ ” But POLITICO’s media reporter, Dylan Byers defended his former colleague. “In publishing those quotes without providing evidence, the Daily Caller has put accusations on the public record regardless of whether or not they carry any weight ... Carlson's own feelings about these reporters' relationship to Media Matters falls very much in line with that of the anonymous sources.” Despite the drama, one Yahoo! contributor wonders why anyone, including Fox News and Media Matters, should hold news outlets and watchdogs to bias-free standards. “The Media Matters ‘expose’ doesn't matter because I realize there are media critics on all sides. Fox News often plays host to the conservative Media Research Center ... Any discerning citizen should be capable of determining which groups have political slants, and which do not, and gather information accordingly.”

Friday, July 11, 2008 News Flash: The Guardian News & Media has Purchased paidContent Wow, exciting news for our good friend Rafat Ali who has reportedly agreed to sell paidContent to Britain's Guardian Media Group for $30 million. The Guardian's Jemima Kiss just published the news of the acquisition and here is her "thought piece." However, terms have not been disclosed and the company declined to provide them to Beet.TV. Rafat posts the news himself, also does not reveal terms. First news of the deal broke a few hours ago in a report by Kara Swisher. Soon after, that eagle-eyed, prolific tweeter Marshall Kirkpatrick at ReadWriteWeb wrote he confirmed the news via a tweet from a Guardian editor! Kara reported that the deal is worth $30 million. This would be in line with some recent sales by small blog/events companies including Mediabistro which sold to Jupiter for around $25 million and ArsTechnica which sold to Conde Nast for around the same price. Here's a link to Compete which compares web traffic among these three properties. We understand that a big area for revenue for paidContent is its emerging conference business. Above is an interview I did one year ago, Rafat told me about expansions and his views on a prospects of a sale. He told me then, "we'll probably exit at some point in time." The parent company of paidContent is ContentNext. paidContent VC Funding and Sale: It's a Family Affair paidContent recieved venture funding from Greycroft Partners, the firm headed by Alan Patricof. The company has been sold by Mesa, the new boutique investment bank headed by his son Mark Paticof. Mark also sold ArsTechnica to CondeNast. Just yesterday, Mesa sold Menupages to New York magazine. I've republished below my interview with Alan. He speaks about Rafat and the prospects for vertical publishing. Must be a big party day with the Patricof family! Congrats. -- Andy Plesser *******www.beet.tv/2008/07/news-flash-the.html
