    I didn't sign it.

    ALL religious institutions need to be stripped of 501(c) status.

    If they're gonna preach "give to Caesar what is Caesar's" then they should be paying their fair share.

    Nope, but Media Matters is hardly a tax-exempt religious or charitable institution . I don't see that Media Matters is violating tax codes through its content. Can you provide some examples for why you see it as violating terms of non-profit (tax exempt) status, please?

    If a substantial portion of its activities are partisan then it is in violation.
