Some quotes featured in This Week in Media Bias History are so awful, they end up becoming infamous. This edition has one of those quotes. On January 29, 2015, NBC journalist Ayman Mohyeldin smeared Chris Kyle, the late Navy SEAL portrayed in the film American Sniper. He slimed Kyle as a “racist” who went on "killing sprees.” The quote would go on to win the Media Research Center’s 2015 “DisHonors” award.
