On Thursday morning, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell released an open letter to President Donald Trump about the $75 million grant Public Broadcasting (CPB) received in the overall coronavirus bill. Bozell explained just how wasteful that money is and what $75 million could do if put to actually FIGHTING the spread of corona. He declared, “Now more than ever, Americans must pull together in a spirit of unity. Not in the spirit of division that CPB has advocated through its decades of biased programming.”
MRC founder and president Brent Bozell took to Twitter on Monday to underline how non-essential PBS/NPR stations are taking $75 million from the emergency $2 trillion "stimulus" bill to deal with the economic ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Look at what America did NOT get because of PBS/NPR handouts.

RESTON, VA -- On Tuesday afternoon, the Media Research Center released an open letter to President Donald Trump on behalf of over 40 leaders in the conservative movement demanding "a more formal investigation to uncover the truth" behind the actions of the Chinese government following the rise of the coronavirus from Wuhan.
At a panel at CPAC titled, “The Future of Social Media in the Public Square,” MRC Vice President of Business, Culture, and Techwatch Dan Gainor explained why the tech companies wanted to restrict conservative speech online. “The reason why conservatives are so powerful online is because they were so badly treated by the traditional media. So conservatives went online,” he told the other people on the panel.
At CPAC on Feb. 27, MRC’s Vice President for TechWatch, Business and Culture Dan Gainor spoke with “meme royalty” Carpe Donktum. The pro-Trump meme creator told Gainor that he had been “kicked off of every platform at least once.” “I am censored on a daily, weekly basis,” he said. “Either it is videos taken down for copyright strikes that shouldn’t actually be real, you know, things that aren’t actually copyrighted, or if it's just posts that are hidden from followers or shadowbanned.”
On Wednesday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell and other conservative leaders released an open letter to Attorney General Bill Barr. The letter highlighted the deep concerns they have about tech giants Google, Twitter and Facebook and the need for transparency and a respect for free speech.
Dan Gainor, Media Research Center (MRC) Vice President of TechWatch, issued the following statement Monday in response to a recent article from The Washington Post that claimed Facebook has “titled rightward” to avoid “Republican wrath.”
MRC founder and president Brent Bozell was in the Fox studios in New York on Tuesday morning, opining on the Oscars and President Trump on the Fox Business program Varney & Company. They discussed the low ratings for the Oscars, and how British comedian Ricky Gervais tweeted that "everyday hardworking people" are put off when "the most famous people in the world use their privileged, global platform to tell the world what they believe."
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared on Wednesday’s edition of Varney and Company, where he took the media to task for their reaction to President Trump’s State of the Union address. Among the hateful responses that Bozell highlighted were a comparison of the President to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels on MSNBC and nasty jabs from CNN anchors that Rush Limbaugh is a racist (he’s not).
The Washington Post makes no secret of its hatred of Trump, right down to the daily slogan on the front of the newspaper, "Democracy Dies in Darkness." So it had to be frustrating that commenters under the paper's YouTube video of Trump's State of the Union speech were so positive.
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement on Tuesday regarding the State of the Union and the media’s reaction to it: "The speech was a tour de force. Honoring those who gave the supreme sacrifice and a hero like Rush Limbaugh in an unprecedented awarding of the medal of freedom. Likewise in another unprecedented moment, reuniting a military family live, in front of millions on television and in front of America's leadership in the House chamber."
Mark Levin unleashed a blistering attack on the hypocrisy of the mainstream media, Sunday, using two Media Research Center montages to expose: “The Democrats are the reporters and the reporters are the Democrats.” On his Fox News program Life, Liberty & Levin, showed the double standard of politicians (and journalists): “‘No, no, no. You can't talk about Biden. You can't investigate the Bidens before an election, then you're interfering in an election.’ But you can investigate Trump all you want.”
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared on Varney and Co., Friday, to hammer the media’s response to the death of terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani. Regarding press outlets that have called him “iconic” and “revered,” an exasperated Bozell concluded, “The media refuse to award the United States the moral high ground in this existential fight between good and evil, this existential fight between those who believe in freedom and those who believe in terrorism.”
MRC President Brent Bozell appeared on Trish Regan Primetime on Friday and called out CNN and journalists who won’t do the basics of investigating controversies like Hunter Biden’s role in the Ukrainian company Burisma. Talking about the media’s resistance to covering the story (and forced mentions of it by Republicans during impeachment hearings), Bozell blasted, “They are upset that the Republicans are bringing this up. They are having to cover the Republicans live. But if it were up to them, and in fact when it has been up to them, they haven't said a thing.”
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Thursday mocked media sadness that impeachment isn’t going exactly as planned. Appearing on Varney and Co., he reminded Fox Business host Stuart Varney that Chris Matthews blamed Fox News, adding, “[Matthews’s] thinking was 'Fox News is giving this other side of the story and the American people, half of America, is listening to this other side of the story.'”
RESTON, VA -- On Monday, The Media Research Center (MRC) filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against Bloomberg LP, the owner of Bloomberg News, Michael Bloomberg and Mike Bloomberg 2020, Inc. The complaint maintains that the policy adopted by Bloomberg News to omit investigating Mike Bloomberg and the other Democratic presidential candidates while continuing to investigate Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump potentially is an improper contribution to Bloomberg’s campaign under FEC regulations.
Media Research Center founder and President Brent Bozell on Thursday hammered the media’s “fake news, left-wing” agenda when it comes to covering impeachment. Appearing on Varney and Co., Bozell discussed a new MRC study finding that 96 percent of impeachment stories have been negative.
Appearing Wednesday on the Fox Business Network, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell told Trish Regan on her eponymous prime time show that the liberal media have shown “such hypocrisy” on the Trump whistleblower.
