Can Media Matters and Ana Marie Cox get almost anything straight?

This is apparently the type of news discussion that Media Matters regards as accurate. Two major errors within just a couple of sentences.

The Nine Voting Lives of ACORN's Darnell Nash
. . . . The conviction of Darnell Nash, apparently known by several aliases including Serina "Sexy Slay" Gibbs, is hugely significant for several reasons, not least of which is the fact that ACORN has long maintained that vote fraud, as opposed to the lesser crime of voter registration fraud, essentially never happens. . . . .

As to the claim that Fox News and the Washington Times are going Kevin Jennings because he is gay, Ana Marie Cox apparently missed straightforward discussions such as this:

Last week, Brewster accused those raising concerns about this issue of engaging in "homophobic smear attacks." That's not the case. A teacher ignoring a female sophomore's confession that she met an older man in a bathroom and then went home with him raises similar concerns. When Obama administration officials can't explain Mr. Jennings' comments, it is time for Mr. Jennings to answer some of these questions himself.

If Ana Marie Cox or Media Matters can explain why most people wouldn't be concerned about the safety of a 15 year old girl (to take Kevin Jennings' claim how old he thought Brewster was) or to take the fact that Brewster had probably just turned 16 a month earlier (if Jennings' claim of when the incident occurred is correct), it would be greatly appreciated. Does Ana Marie Cox or Media Matters have any evidence that Cox's claim that people wouldn't get upset about this happening to a girl if an "older man" was involved?

Ms Cox also misses the point about the voter registration fraud. ACORN clogs up the system when they submit hundreds of thousands of voter registrations at the last minute. County Clerk, registrars whomever is responsible must sift through all the forms and verify each and every registration. I read somewhere that 30% of the registrations submitted by ACORN in one state consisted of fake names etc.

MM's motto: Media matters, the truth doesn't.

Nothing they say merits any attention at all. I have rarely (by that I mean never) found any criticism on their site to be accurate. I ignore them.

Cox claims that Jennings was being persecuted for being gay, eh?

Apparently Cox doesn't watch the news much...

Regarding ACORN, Cox must not talk to Democrats, all Democrats very often...
