MRC’s Bozell Blasts ‘Very Bad People’ in the Liberal Media for Attacking Covington Kids

In a Wednesday appearance on Fox News @ Night, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell blasted the “very bad people” in the liberal media whose false reporting have put the lives of the Covington kids in danger.

Reading from one vile article written about the kids entitled “As details emerge, Covington Catholic kids are still entitled, racist white boys,” host Shannon Bream noted how the author hated the kids for being pro-life. “They may think on some shallow level that they are saving babies,” she read, “But they know on a deeper level that it involves controlling girls and women and that is just a-ok with them. That is why they were in D.C. this weekend.”

“Shannon, isn't this whole thing astonishing in nature,” Bozell responded. “What you've got is not just a story about a false story. But this is a story about some very bad people having done some very bad things some very innocent young kids. Which is now resulted in death threats and the school being shut down, and police escorts for these students – for these high school kids.”

Bozell then spelled out why the liberal media had it out for the Covington Kids:

Now all the evidence is coming out about how brutal the attack was on them, and to have some in the media still standing by this. This tells you, this tells you definitively how much they despise white Catholic young men who have MAGA hats on. This is all it boils down to. They despise the idea of a pro-lifer and a white young boy and white privilege and MAGA hats, the whole world is despicable. And the ends justify the means.

 

 

In addition to Bozell being on the panel, Bream also invited Robert Barnes, a lawyer for some of the Covington Kids who was threatening to sue members of the media for libel if they don’t retract attacks against the kids in 48-hours.

According to Barnes, not only have the boys been subject to death threats but his law office had a bomb threat phoned in. “All ready, my law offices today were subject to a bomb threat that the FBI is investigating, simply for taking the case. The school received a suspicious package and had to shut down to review the suspicious package in fear it might be a bomb,” he recounted.

Continuing, Barnes blasted the liberal media for “abandoning every method of journalistic ethics and integrity that exists, to libel a bunch of kids.”

“So this is, the outrageous conduct, this degree of mob madness was unleashed by establishment press greenlighting it, making false accusations of people they didn't know based on things they did not witness,” he declared.

SHANNON BREAM: I mean, Brent, there are those who, as more video and information emerged over the weekend, still continued to have a very negative view of these kids. And they say the video bears that out. In one piece entitled "As details emerge, Covington Catholic kids are still entitled, racist white boys," the author writes, “they may think on some shallow level that they are saving babies--” She was disparaging them coming to the March for Life. “But they know on a deeper level that it involves controlling girls and women and that is just a-ok with them. That is why they were in D.C. this weekend.”

Is that why they are not being forgiven or given the benefit of the doubt with all the other video and information that's not surfaced?

BRENT BOZELL: Shannon, isn't this whole thing astonishing in nature? What you've got is not just a story about a false story. But this is a story about some very bad people having done some very bad things some very innocent young kids. Which is now resulted in death threats and the school being shut down, and police escorts for these students – for these high school kids. Just think about this for a second.

Now all the evidence is coming out about how brutal the attack was on them, and to have some in the media still standing by this. This tells you, this tells you definitively how much they despise white Catholic young men who have MAGA hats on. This is all it boils down to. They despise the idea of a pro-lifer and a white young boy and white privilege and MAGA hats, the whole world is despicable. And the ends justify the means.

Listen to what Trace said. Trace laid it out for everyone to see. Here are the facts and here's their reaction to it. I don't know that I can add anything to this.
