In a Wednesday appearance on the Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan Primetime with fill-in host David Asman, NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham ripped into The New York Times by comparing the newspaper to the current Congress, complete with a lefty leader being besieged by their “radical base”.
Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell made his latest appearance on the Fox Business Network on Tuesday, sounding off on The New York Times kowtowing to their “clearly out of control” far-left base by changing a headline and CNN’s upcoming show trial on gun control. And for good measure, Bozell schooled a liberal panelist on Bulls and Bears after they insinuated the President was responsible for the El Paso terror attack.
Democratic presidential candidate and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D-NY) proclaimed his support for the “working people” of America, and unveiled his “Workers’ Bill of Rights” July 23. On July 24, the Fox Business Network's Bulls & Bears host David Asman consulted former Small Business Administrator Hector Barreto and others to find out how small businesses would fare under what Asman called de Blasio’s “socialist push against businesses.”
MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor recently appeared on the Fox Business Network’s After the Bell to discuss President Donald Trump’s concerns about conservative censorship online and to call for "fairness." Co-host David Asman asked what could be constituted as illegal censorship by big tech companies such as Facebook or Google on Aug. 29. Gainor replied, “I think some of the concerns that have come up for conservatives involve politics, and so if you start to limit people’s access to campaign information, that gets into territory of the Federal Election Commission.”
Appearing on the Tuesday edition of the Fox Business Network’s After the Bell, Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell didn’t mince words when it came to the liberal media’s scant coverage of the Susan Rice “unmasking” story, ruling “CNN has been on a jihad” against outlet that have dared cover it.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Monday knocked the New York Times for a smug ad that aired during the Oscars. Bozell appeared on the Fox Business Channel and responded to the Times’s commercial declaring the paper the arbiter of truth: “The New York Times runs this really underhanded, snide attack on the President, during the Academy Awards no less. Talk about speaking to the choir when you're doing something like that.”
MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor ripped the liberal media for its anti-Trump, pro-Clinton bias. “There is no neutrality at The New York Times,” Gainor told After the Bell host Dan Asman before pointing out the double standard in how differently the Times covered Democratic and Republican presidents.
Late Thursday afternoon, the Media Research Center’s Tim Graham appeared on the Fox Business Network (FBN) program After the Bell to slam the media for their double standard in reacting to President Barack Obama’s media criticism versus whenever President-elect Donald Trump does the same. FBN host David Asman set the scene with a quote from an Atlantic interview in which President Obama’s offered his latest attack on conservative media, Fox News, and Rush Limbaugh.
In the midst of properly blasting the New York Times for its disgraceful editorial attacking the NYPD, Fox Business News's Davd Asman has raised an important question which goes to the paper's fundamental integrity. Specifically, did the Times acquiesce to active efforts by Mayor Bill de Blasio's office encouraging them to go on the attack, effectively serving as his mouthpiece?
The question also occurred to me several days ago as I read DNAinfo.com's accounting of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's heavyhanded attempts to get local and even state Democratic politicians to condemn the police department. Excerpts from Asman's Friday column containing that question follow the jump (bolds are mine):
When then-Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.) was caught in a sex scandal involving inappropriate instant messages to an underage boy, the media had a field day, using the matter to tar House Republicans at large in the 2006 election cycle, NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell noted in a February 7 appearance on Fox Business Network's "Cavuto." But fast-forward six years to allegations against Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), and the media snoozed on the story until well after he was reelected.
"Silence! You heard nothing from the media before the election. it was this complete opposite view. In other words, we're not going to cover this if it hurts the Democrats," Bozell noted of the liberal media. [watch the full segment below]
Depending on which news outlet you rely on for current events, you may not have heard that convicted Chicago real estate developer Tony Rezko was sentenced to 10½ years in prison Tuesday.
On top of this, unless you read the following report from Reuters, you mightn't have known just how connected he was to a junior senator from Illinois who just so happens to be the President of the United States:
"To the degree" that the jump in the poverty rate in the United States is being reported, it "is being reported as a problem for Obama" and "not a problem caused by Obama," NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell told Fox Business Network's David Asman on the September 13 edition of "Nightly Scoreboard."
"His policies have nothing to do with the effect," in the minds of liberal journalists, the Media Research Center founder argued.
