All Media Matters is doing in all of those examples is providing direct quotes -- with audio and video, in the case of broadcast media, and links back to the original sources, in the case of print media -- to expose what the lunatic fringe (i.e., the dominant faction) of the Republican Party is saying and doing.

You can launch personal attacks on people who report what's going on in the world, but it's unlikely to be persuasive to anyone who doesn't already agree with you.
