the third sentence in this is really the key. after proclaiming in the headline: "Media Matters Puts Tax-Exempt Status in Jeopardy", the reporter acknowledges that "[t]here is no indication the IRS is auditing or probing Media Matters for these alleged violations." so you have to read a few sentences under the headline proclaiming that MMA is in jeopardy to learn that it is not, in fact, in jeopardy.

thus begins fox business's new three part jihad against media matters for america. and i can't say i'm surprised. media matters for america is "dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media." fox news is a political propaganda posing as a news channel. it is exactly the kind of organization that MMA was created to monitor and correct. so of course they have gone after fox news. and of course fox news is going to run a bunch of misleading attacks on the organization. that's what fox news does. and that is media matter's point.
