After capturing on camera an Occupy Wall Street protestor lashing out with an anti-Semitic tirade, NewsBusters's parent organization the Media Research Center (MRC) is sending certified overnight letters to the presidents of ABC News, CBS News, CNN and NBC News demanding that their networks report racism demonstrated at the protests.
Given the networks were obsessed with alleged racist smears by Tea Party members – even though uncorroborated and without a "scintilla of video or audio evidence" – MRC President Brent Bozell says the MRC's new video should be more than enough to qualify as news.
"The Jews commit more white collar crime than any other ethnic group on the earth, and they go unprosecuted because they can buy their way out of it," and "Whenever there's a billion dollar fraud, there's a Jew involved" are just two of the racist smears clearly shouted by the Occupy Wall Street protestor.
The networks will be guilty not only of a double standard if they refuse to report this offense, but also of intentional covering up an act of anti-Semitism according to Bozell.
In each letter, he cites specific examples of each network's news coverage of accusations made against Tea Party members. But in all four letters, Bozell remarks:
“Now we have Occupy Wall Street and real, documented evidence of anti-Semitic slurs coming from an OWS participant. You cannot maintain you didn’t know it, the video is here: http://mrctv.org/videos/occupy-wall-street-protester-rants-against-Jews”
“…If you choose not to report this you are deliberately covering up an act of anti-Semitism.”
