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.

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.

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 pointed out that "the far-left MSNBC did ask Hillary Clinton about this at their debate last week. Very gently, they said, can you reassure Democratic voters that this won't be a problem? PBS won't even go as far as MSNBC in bringing this issue before people vote. It's amazing."
