Democrats in the 2018 midterms are enduring controversy and scandal. But you wouldn’t know it from the liberal media’s lack of interest. MRC Research Director Rich Noyes appeared on Fox and Friends, Wednesday, to hammer the networks for ignoring scandals involving liberals. For instance, according to a police report, Beto O’Rourke in his 20s attempted to flee a DUI accident: “CBS interviewed Beto O'Rourke on October 5th. Didn't bring it up.

As America watches the confirmation proceedings for Judge Kavanaugh, it’s not just the Democratic Senators who have been hammering the Supreme Court nominee. Liberal journalists have engaged in nothing less than a smear campaign. The nomination process has been hindered by wild claims that it’s “illegitimate” because Republicans held up Merrick Garland. Since then, the conversation has been nonstop about unsubstantiated decades-old sexual assault accusations.
Appearing on Tuesday’s Fox & Friends to discuss his latest Trump study co-authored with research analyst Bill D’Agostino, the MRC’s Rich Noyes told co-host Steve Doocy that liberal broadcast network journalists have ditched their ability to use “neutral language that reporters used to use with presidents and getting into subjective commentary” that’s “creating this prejudicial impression of the President.”
MRC President Brent Bozell on Tuesday asked Americans to reach out with love and support to those who are suffering from the disaster of Hurricane Florence. “It’s times like this that Americans always rise to the challenge and rush to help our fellow man.... Rush to help your fellow man. Rush to help your fellow Americans.”
It’s not as if we haven’t seen this before. Twenty-seven years ago, a last-minute accusation of sexual harassment prompted the Senate to re-open Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas’s confirmation hearings; the ‘he-said, she-said’ confrontation was a media spectacle, including prime-time coverage on the broadcast networks. When it was over, the Media Research Center analyzed the coverage, and found journalists criticized Republicans for being too harsh on Anita Hill, while criticizing Democrats for being too soft on Thomas.

Making his second Fox Business Network appearance on Wednesday, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell eviscerated CNN on The Evening Edit for “nationally lying to the American people” concerning their Trump Tower story.

he Media Research Center (MRC) today released a new poll conducted by McLaughlin & Associates gauging self-described conservatives’ attitudes toward Facebook and other social media companies. According to the poll, one-third (32%) of self-described conservative Facebook users have left or are considering leaving Facebook due to political censorship. Two-thirds (66%) of conservatives agreed they do not trust Facebook to treat its users equally regardless of their political beliefs. Another two-thirds (65%) of self-described conservatives believe social media companies like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are purposely censoring conservatives and conservative ideas from their platforms.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Wednesday condemned efforts by social media giants such as Facebook and Twitter to censor conservative thought. Talking to FBN’s Stuart Varney, Bozell explained the scope of the problem: “We are very much in unchartered waters. I don't know that ever in the history of man has so much power been concentrated in only a handful of companies that could determine worldwide what is and isn't acceptable speech and thought.”
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared on FBN’s Varney and Co., Tuesday, to decry the attempts from social media giants to quash free speech. Asked for the solution to all this, Bozell offered four suggestions to Twitter and Facebook: “First clarity. What do they mean by hate speech? That's the center of all this.”
Media Research Center Research Director Rich Noyes appeared on Fox Business, Thursday, to deride a coordinated effort by hundreds of newspapers to editorialize against Donald Trump.

It happens every single day.”
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement Monday in response to Facebook, YouTube, Apple and Spotify removing "The Alex Jones Show" and other InfoWars content. In April, MRC released an extensive report detailing censorship by social media companies.

And during an appearance on the Fox Business Network’s After the Bell, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell predicted that such hits were “going to get worse.”
