A spate of recent Fox News attacks on Media Matters tax-exempt status for partisanship included one last week with Steve Doocy interviewing Jordan Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice that not only relied on an argument that assumes Fox News is an arm of the Republican Party (which could have legal consequences for Fox), but also came from a guest whose own 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization has problems with partisanship as I show in this video.
The clips I use of Steve Doocy's interview with the ACLJ's Jordan Sekulow come from a longer segment of Fox News' June 27, 2011, broadcast of "Fox and Friends" that's currently available online at http://bit.ly/ktInmz
The clips I use of Jordan Sekulow's appearance at the 2011 Faith and Freedom Coalition summit come from the video edited and uploaded by Right Wing Watch on the RWWBlog channel on YouTube at http://bit.ly/krgDRF
The clip I us of Brian Kilmeade and Michele Bachmann come from an earlier segment on the June 27, 2011, broadcast of "Fox and Friends" that I haven't found available online.
