Former Staffer: MMFA’s Defense of Bill Clinton ‘Monstrous’ and ‘Disgusting’

Libby Watson, now a reporter for Splinter News, wrote on Twitter that Media Matters for America did all it could to defend the former president from sexual assault allegations.

In a Twitter thread on Monday night, Libby Watson, a reporter for Splinter News and a former operative at Media Matters for America (MMFA), accused MMFA of defending Bill Clinton from sexual assault charges even while it pursued such allegations against right-wing targets.

Watson wrote that she compiled right-wing comparisons between Clinton and accused rapist Bill Cosby so that MMFA could mock the comparisons. She performed her duty, but asked that her name not be placed on the piece.

Her thread called the defense of Clinton “disgusting” and “monstrous sh*t:”

The MMFA piece dismisses accusations againts Clinton because “there have been no new women to come forward,” citing a Politico article. At the end of the article, the post calls the comparisons between the two accused rapists “dirty tricks” and “smears.”

MMFA, founded by Clinton operative David Brock, has made it its mission to destroy conservative commentary on the news with hit-pieces and organized left-wing boycotts of advertisers and shows.
