Obama's Justice Department now referring media inquiries to Media Matters

The Obama Justice Department has dropped all pretenses and is now referring media inquiries to George Soros's left-wing Media Matters.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

"In response to an inquiry from the Free Beacon, a Justice Department spokeswoman said in an email that she 'was told to direct your questions to the FBI, and also to provide you with a link to this story...' The link was to a story at the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America...."

The report, written by CJ Ciaramella, was a follow up to allegations of an FBI coverup in the new book, "Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-up." Author Katie Pavlich contends that a third gun was found at the murder scene of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, but was hidden during the ensuing investigation because it could lead to a confidential informant.

The Free Beacon report includes a copy of the email. It's a good thing, because it is so brazen that it would be hard to believe if you didn't see it with your own eyes.

The Justice Department is, ostensibly at least, supposed to administer "justice for all." In theory the department could be the average person's last resort for fairness. This, in the end, is the Justice Department's primary claim to hold the public's credibility.

By making hyper partisan Media Matters an all-but-official part of its PR department, Barack Obama's Justice Department has confirmed that any facade at fairness on its part is as false as those Grecian columns Obama used in Denver four years ago.
