MRC/NB's Bozell on FNC Discussing Palin Bias

September 4th, 2008 11:12 AM

MRC President and NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell appeared on Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends" Thursday morning to discuss the outrageous media bias against Alaska Governor and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

Regarding the attacks on Palin's experience, Bozell claimed:

For two years Republicans, conservatives, have been saying that Barack Obama was perhaps the arguably the singularly most unaccomplished presidential candidate in the history of the republic, and for two years, the national press corps, the networks, particularly, have absolutely refused to cover his lack of experience. Now, Sarah Palin comes on, and what have we heard all week long from the same reporters? If this isn't a double standard, I just don't know what is.

The MRC President also talked about the mainstream media picking up stories from liberal blogs:

Not only that, but they are allowing sleazemeisters at the "Huffington Post" and the "Daily Kos" to run the news divisions on the networks by running stuff that they run first and say, well, the bloggers ran this, so we're going to talk about it. No, you're continuing to give airtime to lies when you do something like that.
