MRC President Brent Bozell Slams CNN’s 'Gotcha Journalism'

On Monday night following CNN’s Wolf Blitzer hounding of Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence on The Situation Room, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell released the following statement about Blitzer’s questioning of Pence:

Wolf Blitzer and CNN showed their true colors tonight. Blitzer’s question to Gov. Mike Pence was textbook gotcha journalism and it didn’t work. The question was both absurd and obnoxious. And for anyone to suggest Gov. Pence failed to repudiate David Duke is laughable. What part of ‘we don’t want his support’ does CNN not understand? This is just another left wing smear designed to help Hillary because they know she is in trouble and CNN is all too willing to do Clinton’s dirty work. Media trust and credibility continue to plummet in public polling because there is nothing the press won’t do to slander conservatives. It’s despicable and repulsive.
