George Soros’s media matters is finally being investigated
By News Editors // Mar 31, 2024

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey (R) is asking a state court to enforce a civil investigative demand as part of his investigation into potential advertising fraud committed by the left-wing non-profit Media Matters for America in a campaign against Elon Musk’s X (formerly Twitter). The civil investigative demand — which functions similarly to a subpoena — would clear the way for Bailey to investigate the Democrat-aligned non-profit for potential violations of the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act.

“Media Matters has used fraud to solicit donations from Missourians in order to trick advertisers into removing their advertisements from X, formerly Twitter, one of the last platforms dedicated to free speech in America,” wrote the Missouri Attorney General in the court filing. He added: “Media Matters has pursued an activist agenda in its attempt to destroy X because they cannot control it.”

The Missouri Merchandising Practice Act covers “any deception, fraud, false pretense, false promise, misrepresentation, unfair practice or the concealment, suppression, or omission of any material fact” used by non-profit groups to solicit monetary contributions from state residents. Bailey’s office alleges that Media Matters for America engaged “through coordinated, inauthentic behavior” in a campaign to “defame the organization [X] and cause advertisers to pull their support from the platform, thus harming free speech.” He additionally alleges the group used their campaign to raise money from Missouri residents under false pretenses.

Media Matters allegedly manipulated the X algorithm to ensure corporate advertisements would appear next to “pro-Nazi” content. The group then is accused of having used the manipulated data to public a report suggesting that X, owned by Elon Musk, was promoting pro-Nazi content. This claim led to prominent brands like Walmart, Apple, and Disney pulling advertisements.

This case mirrors a similar investigation in Texas, where Attorney General Ken Paxton is scrutinizing Media Matters for potential fraudulent activities regarding their report on X. Additionally, Musk has filed a lawsuit against Media Matters over the alleged manipulation of the social media platform’s algorithm.
