A MAJOR MEDIA MATTERS FAILURE: #StopRush turns into #MediaMattersStopped. What I notice is that they keep starting these things up, then people on the right run with them and don’t let them change the subject or bring things to a close. In the old days, they could stir up a three-day media storm and people on the right would just sort of hunker down. Now it’s pushback every time, and the old strategies don’t seem to be working as well.

Key bit: “The biggest damage has been to Media Matters, which put its reputation for intimidating advertisers on the line, and failed. Media Matters wasn’t defeated by Limbaugh. Media Matters was defeated by tens of thousands of conservatives who recognized that this was not about Limbaugh or what Limbaugh said.”

UPDATE: Steve Hayward: The Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Month for the Left.
