MRC President Brent Bozell will appear on FBN's Varney and Co. at 11:40am ET!
Media Bias Debate
A few days before Steve Bannon left the Trump White House, President Trump noted that Bannon had not signed on until “very late" in the 2016 campaign. Still, much like a ballplayer acquired just prior to the trading deadline who puts his team over the top, Bannon made a crucial contribution to Trump’s win, suggests New York’s Jonathan Chait. Bannon realized well before he joined the Trump campaign that if Hillary-bashing had a respectable face, it could find a far larger and more persuadable audience than the old-school wacky conspiratorial stuff did.
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued a statement today in response to a Wednesday evening interview between MTP Daily host Chuck Todd and Mark Bray, a prominent voice in the radical left-wing Antifa movement. The Antifa supporter went unchallenged as he promoted his violent extremist beliefs to MSNBC viewers:
After all three broadcast networks spent Sunday blaming President Trump for the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend, in an exclusive interview with NBC News aired on Monday’s Today show, Vice President Mike Pence took the liberal media to task for its biased coverage.
On Tuesday, NRATV released yet another video responding to false attacks from the New York Times and the Washington Post. In the video, Grant Stinchfield goes after the media and exposes their hypocrisy.
Two days after informing viewers that his “job...actually is to scare people to death” about war with North Korea, MSNBC host Brian Williams and guests served up more kooky thoughts on Thursday’s The 11th Hour by comparing President Trump to Kim Jong-un and swooning over a “renaissance” in American journalism. Oh, and that was all within the show’s opening segment, aka the A-Block.
It was ironic on Tuesday that the network that continues to employ proven liar Brian Williams accused the Trump White House of having a “credibility problem.” During a Today show interview with United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, co-host Savannah Guthrie demanded: “...there’s a new poll out just last night and it shows that the vast majority of Americans do not trust the information they’re getting out of the White House....Does the White House have a credibility problem? Does that concern you?”
On Friday's Cavuto: Coast to Coast, host Neil Cavuto exposed the ridiculous and inappropriate Newsweek cover article calling the president "lazy" and declaring his presidency a failure. "This article has no point." He pointed out that the media also quickly declared Reagan to be a failure. "This ain't fair, this ain't right. Not remotely fair, or remotely balanced."
Former Bush administration official, former failed McCain campaign aide, and current MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace was featured in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine in which she promoted her liberal tilt compared to other Republicans and complained that “there’s no other news” besides President Trump.
Mark Levin blasted the news media for going bonkers over Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer and ignoring more important stories about Fusion GPS, Obama's unlawful surveillance activities, and the Clintons' Russian ties.
Last March, Republican Congressman Kevin Cramer (N.D.) sent a letter to media executives at “the big three” of ABC, CBS and NBCUniversal ripping into their persistent pattern of media bias. The letter included several questions about newsroom standards, the presidential election coverage of Donald Trump, Trump’s transition and presidency, and of course, Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal.
The media's obsession with anything that can be reported negatively on Trump is made so much worse by what they do not report. Networks like CNN refuse to cover stories that do not fit their leftist narrative. Tuesday morning on New Day, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) pointed out the blatant lack of coverage of Fusion GPS's ties to Russia and Debbie Wasserman Schultz's connection to criminal Capitol Hill IT workers.
CNN host Alisyn Camerota has been making appearances recently to discuss her new book, Amanda Wakes Up, which is a fictional work that is nevertheless based in part on her past experiences working as a FNC host for the weekend edition of Fox and Friends. Camerota -- who left FNC to join CNN three years ago -- has been showing this past week a greater willingness to criticize her former employer -- yesterday on CNN's Reliable Sources, going so far as to charge that her old FNC show "unnecessarily stoked outrage" and "took a really myopic view of, say, President Obama or the current administration."
