Girl Scouts Now Promoting Media Matters As Reliable Site To Clear Up "Misinformation"

The long march through the institutions.

Media Matters? Honestly?

In 2010, the Girl Scouts of the USA published a book called “MEdia.” The publication, designed for girls in grades six through eight, is a guide that apparently offers insight into how young people should process and understand the media messages surrounding them.

And if you read something that strikes you as dubious, don't just accept it uncritically; make sure you check out an unbiased, straight-shooting source. From the book itself:

The Internet is a breeding ground for “urban legends,” which are false stories told as if true. Next time you receive a txt or e-mail about something that seems unbelievable, confirm it before you spread it.

The fact-checking site snopes.com investigates everything from urban legends to “news” articles and posts its findings. Media Matters for America (http://mediamatters.org/) gets the word out about media misinformation.

The Girl Scouts are aware of this odd inclusion, but are apparently re-printing the book for further distribution -- Media Matters still cited as a legitimate source.

You know, Snopes itself is biased as all get out, but at least it pretends to be non-ideological. And Snopes is mostly concerned with the stuff a kid would be interested in (urban legends, oddball "facts," etc.).

3 Luckily, I'm not paying for this horse-puckey. I can't eat the cookies because of a food intolerance.

Wouldn't it be nice, however, if people who set themselves up "caring for children" didn't use the opportunity to crassly promote their politics?

I know, I know, silly idea.

8 Yeah, Snopes is pretty leftward biased and it shows when they "check" on political stories. But on anything non-political, they're actually pretty good, which is why I still check them from time to time.

MM, on the other hand...

23 I have never had a problem with Snopes. Almost everything I have looked up on there as been apolitical anyway.

As for the Girls Scouts I still love their cookies but damn they are getting expensive. If they are telling their members to go to Media Matters though they need to be corrected by the parents of the girls who are members.

My big question is why has the tax exempt status of MM not been revoked. It should be clear to anyone with half a brain that they are a Democrat front group.

49 I stopped supporting the Girl Scouts (ie buying their cookies) when I found out a few years ago that they supported and donated to Planned Parenthood.

But this is yet another example of how liberals go after our youth and indoctrinate them with leftist BS. It has been a decades-long full assault on our culture. From the school system (teachers, book content, school curriculum) to the media to the "entertainment" industry (TV, songs, movies, children's shows, SNL, Comedy Central, MTV) to organizations like the Girl Scouts.

That's really our core problem right now and why we have such lousy elected officials. Socialists, communists, Marxists and racists could not get elected to office if the Left had not already corrupted and dumbed down the electorate.

I was a troop leader for my daughters' Girl Scouts troops from 2004 through 2010, and it was obvious from Day One that the organization is run by liberals. Everything about it is from the liberal/feminist handbook.
That being said, troops have a lot of freedom to run things how they like, so most troops reflect the girls, their families, and leaders' values.

75 My daughter is out of high school now, and we briefly tried scouts when she was in elementary.
When I was a GS back when dinosaurs ruled the earth, we learned how to camp, cook with a safe fire made properly with properly gathered wood, dig a trench, name the stars, identify plants and animals, and so on.
In the cold months, we did food drives, sang at nursing homes, learned music, dancing, sewing, knitting badges.
My daughter got a bit of camping and compass work, because we were lucky that one of the moms was an old school real deal (I chaperoned on some campouts, and taught some indoor badges).
I was appalled at some of the badge activities that were new to me when she joined, particularly one about oil slicks: make an oil slick in a mixing bowl with cooking oil and water. try various ways to clean it up--suggested means were scooping with a spoon, soaking with paper towels, Qtips, etc.
Hard, isn't it girls? Now IMAGINE millions of gallons of evil petroleum covering pristine nature, killing everything it comes in contact with FOREVER!
The "community service" portion of this badge was to go to your friends, family and neighbors, point out to them how much less energy they should be using, and how much more they should be recycling.
It was a pretty commie UN little group about ten years ago in the DC area.

Quoted from Clyde, #49: "But this is yet another example of how liberals go after our youth and indoctrinate them with leftist BS. It has been a decades-long full assault on our culture. From the school system (teachers, book content, school curriculum) to the media to the "entertainment" industry (TV, songs, movies, children's shows, SNL, Comedy Central, MTV) to organizations like the Girl Scouts."

Look, if you leave raising your kids and instilling values to their teachers, scout leaders, TV, and God knows who else, this is what's going to happen. It's possible to raise conservative kids in liberal environments, but it takes hands-on parenting. Take care to instill your own values, have constant discussions, and most likely things'll turn out okay. My girls had a lot of very positive experiences in Girl Scouts, and one thing I'll say for it is that the organization itself does not push any particular beliefs on anyone. If that is what's happening, then someone is doing something WRONG.They have lots of "suggestions" and so forth, but an intelligent leader can sift the good from the bad and make the scouting experience a good one for girls of any political/religious background. For example, a "community service" project can be in partnership with a religious or even conservative political organization, and as long as no one in the troop objects no one is going to say they can't do it.

85 My wife has been a GS leader for about 20 years, and 2 of my daughters have been gold award recipients (Eagle for GSs), with a 3rd on the way. We were dismayed this year to find that the GS changed the requirements for the gold to something called a "journey". I'm suspicious whenever I hear that asinine term, and as expected, this meant that now they had to have a lot of indoctrination in global warming and other hooey. My wife says that as soon as our last daughter is through, she's done with GS and will tell them exactly what she thinks of this nonsense.

There just isn't anything sacred to these people. And by these people, I mean bitter crones with no real accomplishments other than making themselves feel relevant.

86 Of course, but you'd like to have more support from the institutions in your community. It gets tiring when virtually all these organisations are trying to preach their leftist dogma on your kids.

88 Want to see a young girl scout's eyes go stupid? Next time they knock on your door selling cookies, tell them you're not about to give money to a leftist organization who supports the policies and agenda of a stuttering clusterfuck of a miserable failure.

89 Does he have US citizenship?
I'm not sure. If he does, it should be revoked immediately.
I'd also like to see each and every organization that he funds investigated, after their assets are frozen, naturally. It shouldn't be a hard case to make, the bastard hates us and has bragged about bringing us down more than once. He's done more damage to freedom around the world than any other single person I can think of. He's also inflicted a great deal of economic harm to innocents, too.
Now, it appears it's our turn under his boot. I'm not enthusiastic about that idea. Not at all.

90 one thing I'll say for it is that the organization itself does not push
any particular beliefs on anyone. If that is what's happening, then
someone is doing something WRONG.

That may have been the case in the past, but it isn't now.

Posted by: pep at December 28, 2011 06:12 PM (6TB1Z)

91 The Girl Scouts have been on a sad decline into lunacy ever since they
first changed their cookies to be more "socially conscious".

Shouldn't they be getting the McDonald's treatment from their cohorts on the Left?

Tofu wafers and such?

108 34 OT/ kinda,Fat fuck windbag Bob Beckel just responded to a vid of Rick Perry's request for a parade for returning vets by saying, That's funny Rickyboy, I never heard of you volunteering for the military".

Whenever a liberal says something like this, I ask if he supports homosexuals. When he gives the expected response, I ask how he can do that if he's never engaged in homosexuality.
That shuts them up. The argument is exactly analogous.

111 It is a shame we have nothing teaching girls to be strong women any more. Scouting has turned to camp for code pink and whining. Cultural relativism is all they preach...of course, my version of things isn't valid to them nor to they tolerate my version of things while they tell me everyone has their own personal truth and all of it is right. It used to be God and Country and Family....now it is Trees and Globalism and The Village.

123 I am a Girl Scout leader and I pick and choose the materials we use in our troop. We work on badges, camp, take field trips, sell cookies, adopt a military family at the holidays, Christmas carol at nursing homes and and ignore the poorly written liberal garbage. The vast majority of troops do the same.

128 The Girl Scouts of America turned stupid all the way back in the 80's. Apparently a bunch of frustrated lesbian Marxists slid in and took over the place and have been working none too slyly into turning the organization into a LGBT cheerleading outfit.
I see it as a piece of a larger wave of take-overs by leftists and "progressives" (what an oxymoron that is) of institutions and foundations over the last several decades. They now control huge amounts of money and the minds of the young. Stalin has triumphed from the grave.
