Appearing on the Tuesday edition of the Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan Primetime, the MRC’s Tim Graham and the eponymous host ripped the liberal media for pushing a “cuckoo conspiracy theory” about President Trump being a dictator and dismissing questions about the integrity of our electoral system (especially the voting recounts in South Florida).
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement on Tuesday in response to CNN’s lawsuit against the White House: “CNN’s lawsuit is ridiculous. I am, and have always been, a defender of the Constitution and the First Amendment. That said, no one reporter has a constitutional right to access the press briefing room. It’s the prerogative of the White House to decide who gets a pass and who does not."
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement on Monday in response to last week's midterm elections: The liberal media are spinning this as a typical off-year result for the incumbent president's party, and a referendum on President Trump, but I think they’re wrong. These aren't typical times and Republicans should have kept their majority in the House, especially running against so many leftists funded by radicals clearly out of the mainstream.
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement on Monday in response to Saturday Night Live’s “pathetic” mocking of former Navy SEAL and current Republican congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw:
On Thursday night, Mark Levin was on fire as he excoriated the liberal media for dividing this country and undermining American values. Appearing with Sean Hannity on Fox News, the conservative radio host blasted journalists for comparing the President to Hitler and for making Nazi references. Levin attacked, “We're actually fighting the media. We're fighting the Democrats, we're fighting academia, we're fighting Hollywood and all the rest.”
On the 23rd anniversary of the Million Man March, organizer Louis Farrakhan was in Detroit, Michigan delivering a speech.

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. NBC flew their anchor down to Houston on October 8th. He did a big profile piece. Didn't mention it.”

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.
RESTON, VA – Today, the Media Research Center (MRC) said Congress must hold hearings to investigate Google for possibly trying to fix the presidential election following a bombshell report by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Monday night.
