Despite the bombshell news that the FBI is conducting a massive investigation into corruption at the Clinton Foundation, the three networks on Thursday ignored the story. Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued the following statement in response:
Brent Bozell on Wednesday condemned the “unethical” CNN for colluding with the Hillary Clinton campaign. The Media Research Center President assailed the cable network, saying its reputation and integrity are now gone. Regarding former CNN analyst Donna Brazile secretly giving debate questions to Clinton, the media watchdog head accused, “This is a Clinton campaign that is working with the news media. So you can say there is a great deal of unethical behavior going on both parts.”
In light of CNN’s near-blackout of on-air coverage regarding its removal of now-interim DNC chair Donna Brazile, the MRC’s Director of Media Analysis Tim Graham took to the airwaves of the Fox Business Network (FBN) to blast this move as “not exactly transparency in action” and particularly their own media reporters for not doing so aside from social media and their website.
According to Brent Bozell, the latest WikiLeaks e-mails show the “incestuous” relationship between journalists and the Clinton campaign. The Media Research Center President appeared on Fox Business’s After the Bell to talk about the firing of “cheater” Donna Brazile as an analyst for CNN. He marveled, “Sleazy. The whole story is sleazy.” Highlighting the fact that Brazile shared debate questions in advance with the campaign, Bozell condemned, “She cheated with the Clinton campaign. She gave the Clinton campaign not just the one answer that she denied giving.”
The Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday to discuss his recent study, in which he discovered that an overwhelming 91 percent of network evening news coverage of Donald Trump was hostile to the candidate. “Tell us about how you came to that conclusion,” inquired host Brian Stelter, “What does that 91 percent number represent?”
The Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes appeared on Fox and Friends Sunday, where he called out the liberal media for journalists “willing to step forward and carry some of that water” for the Hillary Clinton campaign’s push back of FBI Director James Comey. “Unless you think he's lying about the timeline he explained in his letter to congress, he was briefed about this and felt the need to proceed and he felt like he should inform the committees that he had talked to that he was updating the record,” Noyes explained.
Media Research Center Research Director Rich Noyes continued his media blitz by appearing on the Thursday installment of Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs Tonight to promote his must-read study on a stunning disparity by the major broadcast networks in coverage of Donald Trump’s scandals versus Hillary Clinton’s pitfalls.
According to Brent Bozell, the media’s double standard on how they treat Donald Trump vs. the fawning over Hillary Clinton is “stunning.” The Media Research Center president appeared on Fox News and the Fox Business Channel, Wednesday, and marveled at the bias: “In 30 years of tabulating this empirically, we've never seen anything like it.” Bozell cited a new MRC study finding that 91 percent of Trump’s coverage since the conventions has been hostile. The media watchdog president declared to Neil Cavuto: “It doesn't matter where you fall in this campaign or ideology. You simply cannot have this kind of double standard and call it fair, balanced, objective journalism.”
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared on Fox Business, Tuesday, to condemn the media’s collusion with the Hillary Clinton campaign, exposing secret dinners between top journalists and Clinton staffers. Regarding the new WikiLeaks e-mails, Bozell named names: “Six reporters from ABC, including George Stephanopoulos, David Muir and Diane Sawyer. They are superstars. Nine from CNN. And this CNN is the Clinton News Network. Four from Politico, including Glenn Thrush.”
NewsBusters Executive Editor Tim Graham appeared Monday night on the Fox Business program Risk and Reward to discuss the media's new spin that the election is now over and Hillary Clinton is looking ahead to being president. Graham lamented the early declaration of a Hillary victory, that the media is playing "a Jedi mind trick" and working to create a "self-fulfilling prophecy" for the Democrats.
Following the final 2016 presidential debate on Wednesday night between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell issued the following statement about the debate and Fox News moderator Chris Wallace:
On Friday afternoon, NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham appeared on Fox News on Your World with Neil Cavuto. The subject was the ongoing obsession with women charging Donald Trump with sexual harassment in the wake of the Access Hollywood tape where he boasted that a “star” could grope women and get away with it.
Host Neil Cavuto pointed out the dramatic divergence in TV coverage of Trump and sex vs. the emerging scoops coming out of the Clinton campaign e-mails posted on the Internet by Wikileaks.
During a Friday morning appearance on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co., Media Research Center president Brent Bozell called out the media for “secretly colluding with the Clinton campaign.” As evidence of this, Bozell pointed out the number of instances released in the WikiLeaks emails that pointed to collaboration between the Clinton Campaign and journalists, including “secretly colluding with the Clinton campaign, giving them veto power over their stories, teeing up stories for them.”
“Democracy can only survive if there is a free press,” Bozell observed, adding “How can you have an open, functioning democracy, when you have got the news media, not just withholding information from the public, but twisting, distorting and lying about information when they do present it?”
Last week NBC released a long-held sex talk tape about Donald Trump just in time to exert maximum damage against him. Now it has been revealed that NBC has held – and refuses to release – a seriously damaging video regarding Hillary Clinton’s threats against Juanita Broaddrick, the woman purportedly raped by Bill Clinton. In light of this news, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell released a scathing statement blasting NBC News.
On the Fox Business Network (FBN) early Thursday evening, Media Research Center Director of Media Analysis Tim Graham emphasized that, aside from the leaked Clinton campaign e-mails coming from Wikileaks, they nonetheless proved “that the news media is operating hand in glove with the Clintons and that reporters” from outlets like The New York Times “are coming to the Clinton's press aides and going, you can veto our stories.”
On Thursday afternoon, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell was outraged by the report from TMZ that multiple sources in the NBC circle said the network “top network execs knew about the video long before they publicly said they did, but wanted to hold it because it was too early in the election” and instead “roll out the tape 48 hours before the debate so it would dominate the news cycle leading up to the face-off.”
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell slammed journalists covering for Hillary Clinton as nothing more than “spin control for the Democratic Party.” Bozell appeared on Varney and Co., Wednesday, to discuss the latest revelations from Wikileaks and the collusion they reveal. The media watchdog head warned, “I think the public needs to understand that every time they listen to CNN, they watch CBS, NBC, read the New York Times, read the Boston Globe, it's not just at they are left-wing, it's that they are colluding with the Clinton campaign in this election.”
According to the Media Research Center’s Tim Graham, biased journalists are treating Donald Trump as “some sort of epic threat to the country and has to be stopped.” The MRC’s director of media analysis appeared on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal on Tuesday to explain how journalists are leaping on Trump’s latest scandal and ignoring Hillary Clinton’s controversies.
This past Monday, at a pro-Donald Trump rally outside the CNN building in Hollywood, a woman was taken into custody by police for assaulting a Donald Trump supporter. The Trump supporters were protesting the leftist agenda of CNN. Conservatives everywhere have every reason to be furious with a leftist so-called "news" media that has cast aside all pretense of objectivity in this campaign. MRC President Brent Bozell is calling on conservatives across the country to protest outside local media outlets.
Media Research Center’s Research Director Rich Noyes made his latest Fox Business Network (FBN) appearance on Tuesday afternoon and expounded upon the massive, 15-to-1 disparity of major broadcast network coverage about Donald Trump’s lewd 2005 comments conerning women versus a Wikileaks document dump involving Hillary Clinton.
