Appearing on Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg Show on Thursday, NewsBusters’ executive editor Tim Graham commended Facebook for meeting with conservative leaders – including Media Research Center president Brent Bozell – over accusations of liberal bias, but warned: “...these are...the kind of questions that say even in the social media now...there’s just going to be that temptation to say, ‘Let’s do something for the good guys’...usually those are the liberals....And that’s where you get this kind of suppress-the-conservatives business.”
MRC President Brent Bozell on Thursday appeared on The Blaze TVand compared the controversy engulfing Facebook’s targeting of conservatives to the IRS selecting right-leaning groups for special scrutiny. Talking to host Tomi Lahren, Bozell explained, “For anyone to suggest that Facebook has a policy against conservatives, it's just simply unfounded. It's silly. The IRS didn't have a policy against conservatives. There were people within the IRS who had a policy against conservatives.”
In his first television appearance since the highly-anticipated meeting on Wednesday between Facebook and the nation’s top conservative leaders, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell told Fox Business Network’s Neil Cavuto Thursday afternoon that he “left encouraged” that the site wants to fix the “erosion of trust” set forth by allegations of censoring conservative news topics.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell was invited to participate in today's much-anticipated meeting with the nation's top conservatives at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California. This evening, he emerged from the gathering and was pleased with the conversation. Further, he was hopeful about a restoration of trust after allegations that Facebook suppressed trending conservative news topics.
Later today, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell will join other top conservatives in a meeting with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to discuss last week's Gizmodo report that Facebook quashed trending conservative news items. Going into the meeting, Bozell issued the following statement:
“President Obama gave the commencement speech at Howard University: He told graduates their future is bright. Unless they want jobs.” - NewsBusted’s Jody Miller
“And finally, Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who passed herself off as black, has written a book. And it contains some surprises. For example, she now claims to be Asian.” - NewsBusted’s Jody Miller
“President Obama went to Saudi Arabia for the Persian Gulf Summit. Aides say he was disappointed because when he agreed to participate, he thought it was the Persian Golf Summit.” - NewsBusted’s Jody Miller
The MRC's recent study of cable news election coverage was a topic of discussion during the April 25 edition of Fox New's Happening Now. During the segment, Fox News Radio host Alan Colmes and radio host Tammy Bruce both agreed with the study that GOP candidates had received much more air time than their Democrat counterparts, but had different theories as to why the coverage was so skewed. Bruce argued that the media didn't focus on Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders for fear of exposing their flaws, while Colmes countered that the lopsided coverage was merely the result of the GOP campaign being more entertaining, and the "conflict on the right."
On Thursday’s O’Reilly Factor, an ongoing media study by the MRC’s Rich Noyes was cited. Depauw University’s Professor of Media Studies, Jeffrey McCall cited the March report, which details how much airtime the media have given Donald Trump, in comparison to other GOP candidates, and what stories they obsess over, to the neglect of others.
Polls show that Hillary Clinton is a polarizing figure. But love her or hate her, you must admit, she DOES have what it takes to be a model prisoner. - NewsBusted’s Jody Miller
Speaking of Bernie, shocking new poll has Sanders now enjoying a 90 percent approval rating...among parasites. - NewsBusted's Jody Miller
MRC president Brent Bozell appeared on the Fox Business program After The Bell on Monday to discuss the strange Boston Globe fake front-page mocking what “President Trump” was doing in the White House.
Former New York Times reporter Judith Miller praised the stunt as " a very creative response to make people pay attention to what Donald Trump has been saying," but Bozell wasn’t having it, as Fox Business host Melissa Francis pointed out the Globe’s precarious business situation:
The Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes appeared with Neil Cavuto, Monday, to slam the “sophomoric,” “absurd” Boston Globe for printing a fake front cover that speculated on what a future Trump presidency might be. Noyes derided the effort to pass off a stunt editorial as real news “As a political hit job, this is pretty sophomoric. It's absurd.”
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement praising CNN and MSNBC for their decisions to ban Roger Stone, a close associate of presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has called for intimidation of delegates at this summer’s Republican Convention.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared on Varney and Company, Wednesday, to analyze Hillary Clinton’s struggling presidential campaign. Host Stuart Varney noted that Clinton, who has lost seven of the last eight primaries or caucuses, still “has the support of the media.” Bozell explained, "It's troubled times for her."
Long-time Media Research Center friend and cartoonist Glenn Foden passed away suddenly yesterday of a brain aneurysm. It was a profound loss to our family and to the conservative movement.
Using his wit, his ink and his artistic talent, Glenn poked fun at the liberal media and the left regularly for MRC Business and MRC Culture. His signature characters and use of pop-cultural imagery made his cartoons resonate not just with insiders, but with everyone.
"Dr. Ben Carson has endorsed Donald Trump for President. And in return, Carson has just been named the Dean of Trump University Medical School." – Jodi Miller, NewsBusted.
"President Obama will travel to Cuba soon: Foreign policy experts say the visit is an important step toward Cuba’s getting the bomb." – NewsBusted's Jodi Miller.
Super Tuesday "wasn’t all bad news for Bernie Sanders," Jodi Miller of NewsBusted notes. " He did win every category of voter in his home state of Vermont -- from rich to poor, from young to old, from white to whiter."
