During an appearance on FBN's Varney & Co. on Monday, MRC President Brent Bozell blasted ABC's George Stephanopoulos for failing to inform both ABC News and his viewers that he had donated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation. He also took ABC News to task for "giving the middle finger to America" by not considering the donations a big deal.
MRC President Brent Bozell issued the following statement after ABC failed to sanction George Stephanopoulos, host of ABC’s This Week and Good Morning America, for displaying an inexcusable lack of journalistic ethics.
MRC president Brent Bozell issued a statement Friday on George Stephanopoulos and his Clinton Foundation donation scandal:
“The most appropriate way for ABC to resolve this issue is by forbidding Stephanopoulos from anchoring any political coverage of the 2016 cycle or they will face the same integrity and ethics problems now plaguing NBC."
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell joined Sean Hannity on his eponymous Fox News Channel (FNC) program Thursday evening and ripped ABC for deciding to air a sitcom this fall that’s loosely based on the life of anti-religious bigot Dan Savage.

"Politico reports there is a stunning lack of enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton in Hollywood. It seems celebrities have finally realized that Hillary is as phony as they are." -- NewsBusted anchor Jodi Miller.
Appearing on FBN's Cavuto Friday night, MRC President Brent Bozell argued that the news media are losing the trust of the American public because they've become more "marginalized" and "radicalized" during the Obama years, deliberately ignoring news "if it harms the narrative of the left."
"In the lead up to the 2016 presidential election, CNN has hired 40 new political reporters. So CNN now officially has more political reporters than viewers." -- NewsBusted anchor Jodi Miller

One precious clip is Melissa Harris-Perry proclaiming “I don’t get to opt out of paying taxes once we’ve kind of made a collective decision.” David Rutz offered a summary:
During an appearance on FBN’s Varney & Co. on Thursday, MRC President Brent Bozell slammed the “Big Three” (ABC, CBS and NBC) networks for barely covering the latest controversy surrounding the Clinton Foundation.

"Hillary Clinton officially announced her candidacy on Twitter. And here’s hoping Anthony Weiner will NOT be endorsing her on Instagram!" -- Jodi Miller.
MRC president Brent Bozell appeared live from Washington today on the Fox Business program Varney & Co. The topic was the media’s difference in covering Hillary Clinton versus the Republican presidential candidates. Bozell said the campaign coverage is all “the Hillary Clinton spin machine.” With her wealth, she’s the “uber one percent,” not an “everyday American.”
Meanwhile, he said, Marco Rubio is being presented as too young and inexperienced to be president.
"Scary, dangerous, slimy, firebrand, extremist, hardline, stupid, [and] uppity loudmouth" were adjectives used to blast Sen. Ted Cruz when he announced for president. By contrast, the liberal media were absolutely "giddy" at Hillary's Sunday announcement, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell noted on today's Your World with Neil Cavuto. Because Republicans are never going to count the liberal media as among their friends, GOP presidential contenders would be wise to focus their media efforts primarily in social media avenues where they can go over the liberal media's filter, Bozell counseled.
MRC president appeared Friday afternoon on the Fox Business show Varney & Co and said this about campaign 2016 coverage: “Buy some popcorn! This is going to be the most fascinating...campaign season in years!”
Bozell said he can see both sides of the media coverage, “how the media are going to her best friend and her worst enemy.”
