Hey, another Media Matters email!
Subject: I can't believe I have to do this again...

To: "'Mmfa staff'"
but once again, someone forwarded an internal email to the Wonkette, embarrassing both Media Matters as an organization and all of the colleagues you work with on a daily basis. It's ridiculous enough that email needed to be sent in the first place, and appalling that someone's had the lack of judgment to send it to a widely-read logger. One rule from the communications shop: TREAT BLOGGERS AS PRESS, and communicate with them through the communications shop. If you have a question about that, ask one of us. I hoped, apparently in vain, that this wouldn't happen again. It did. So I'm hoping again. Don't let this happen again.
Oh, Media Matters, come on. Treat us as press? But the press ignores you! We hang on your every internal memo!
