Media Matters coordinates media coverage of Fast and Furious with Obama Justice Department

So will George Soros funded Media Matters lose its tax exempt status over this political coordination?  From Fox News:
. . . The emails, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request and published by The Daily Caller, often show department public affairs chief Tracy Schmaler communicating with Media Matters bloggers. Sometimes, the emails were in response to inquiries. Other times, Schmaler was pitching ideas, according to the Caller.  
In a January 2012 email chain, Schmaler sent a Media Matters writer lines from House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa's comments at a recent hearing. She reportedly underlined passages where the California Republican tries to explain the difference between Operation Fast and Furious and other anti-gunrunning operations under former President George W. Bush.  
Hours later, an article appeared on Media Matters' site titled "Rep. Issa Ties Himself in Fast and Furious Knots."  
Daily Caller editor Tucker Carlson, also a Fox News contributor, said the emails show "moment-to-moment coordination" between the department and Media Matters. . . .

If Kathleen Sebelius gets away with it, why shouldn't Media Matters?

If enforcement of the Hatch Act does not apply to Obama's nominees (just reclassify the event), and the AG can ignore Congress, and lie, why would anyone expect Media Matters to receive any punishment?
