MSM pushes Crew but forgets old Rollcall article…

I’m up way too early this morning and noticed Willie Geist pushing the CREW vs O’Donnell story. He joins CBS and Kos in dare I say it, masturbating over the prospect of a scandal.

Unfortunately the internet has a very long memory, including this Roll Call article about CREW, that bastion of non-partisan thought:

But a review of entities against which CREW has filed complaints and information about its donors suggests that the organization may be guilty of the same practice — attacking groups and individuals who are the foes of CREW’s donors.

Hey that’s a citizens watchdog group you are talking about it’s not like they have something to hide…oh wait:

The organization refuses to reveal information about its donors, and Deputy Director Naomi Seligman told Roll Call that “donors play no role in CREW’s decisions as to the groups or politicians we target.”

Well OK but it’s not like they target republicans or anything…oh wait again:

And all but a handful of its complaints against Members of Congress have targeted Republicans.

Cripes Peter you would think they were doing quid-pro-quos or something:

In February 2006, CREW asked the Senate Finance Committee to investigate the Center for Union Facts, an anti-union group, and its sister organization, the Center for Consumer Freedom, which CREW claimed are “front organizations for for-profit industry entities.” The complaint noted that the Center for Union Facts Web site had “negative information about unions,” including the Service Employees International Union. Later that year, CREW launched a Freedom of Information Act request, followed by a lawsuit, to get the Department of Labor to hand over documents regarding the department’s contacts with the founder of the two centers.

On Sept. 1, 2006, CREW received $75,000 from the SEIU, according to documents that the union filed with the Department of Labor.

And the SEIU is only one of the big liberal groups that fund them.

Will anybody in the MSM report this case of liberals quoting liberals? Morning Joe starts in 10 min, we’ll see.
