MRC’s Brent Bozell: If CNN Won’t Report the News, ‘It Should Collapse’

Listen to the Article!

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.”

The MRC President connected it to CNN’s failing ratings, telling guest host Gregg Jarrett: “Look at CNN's audience. Its collapsed. It's a worldwide network and it can't get 750,000 people in the United States of America. Its credibility has collapsed. The networks have collapsed. And it should collapse. If they are not going to report the news, if they are not going to investigate any story, if they are not going to tell the truth, I hope it does collapse.

BRENT BOZELL: 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. Whatever happens to this notion of investigative journalism? The idea you would write this piece and dismiss it as an appearance. Why not do something really, really interesting. Do you realize everyone talk about this?

Why don't they just ask Hunter Biden. How is it, Hunter Biden, that you went with your dad on a plane and left with a $50,000 a month contract? What did you do? The Republicans are all asking this question. What did you do? Why isn't Jeffrey Toobin, CNN, MSNBC and The New Yorker, why aren't they asking Hunter Biden, what did you do? How were you qualified? If you can't answer that, it's clearly, no one thinking clearly or honestly is going to deny that the only reason Burisma got this guy on the payroll at $50,000 a month is because his last name was Biden. And everyone knows that. All you have to do is have Hunter Biden show how that's wrong. Answer the question.

 

BOZELL: Look at CNN's audience. It’s collapsed. It's a worldwide network and it can't get 750,000 people in the United States of America. Its credibility has collapsed. The networks have collapsed. And it should collapse. If they are not going to report the news, if they are not going to investigate any story, if they are not going to tell the truth, I hope it does collapse.
