MJ Rosenberg is leaving the liberal activist group Media Matters, Fox News reports. Rosenberg plans start his own blog, saying he doesn't want his criticism of Israel to "harm" Media Matters.

Rosenberg's recent comments have drawn heavy fire. He mistakenly accused the Drudge Report website of racism in its coverage of the Trayvon Martin case, for which he has apologized. He also branded pro-Israel Americans as "Israel-firsters" and verbally attackd a Harvard professor. 

Rosenberg announced Friday on the Media Matters website that he was "striking out on my own with a brand new website and blog."

Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz branded Rosenberg an anti-Semite for the “Israel-firsters” comment. When Dershowitz, a lifelong Democrat, urged the Democratic Party to distance itself from Media Matters, Rosenberg responded by telling him to “go to Hell” and urging Dershowitz’s students to boycott his class

"My presence here is being used in an effort to shut Media Matters up," Rosenberg said. He plans to create a new site, MJayRosenberg.com.
