Threatening and violent social media posts and overt actions against Trump administration officials and their families have escalated sharply in recent days. Apparently, some are taking the lack of outrage as permission for expanding the scope of their efforts. Thus, it's not enough to threaten the President's 12 year-old son Barron, as Peter Fonda did. This week, a Canadian TV writer threatened his four-year-old granddaughter. What's next? Cousins and in-laws? This incident has received some press coverage — in the UK, but virtually none in the U.S. establishment press.
Snopes.com's so-called "fact checks" are so often inane — NewsBusters has caught it "fact-checking" an obviously satirical post — that it's tempting to dismiss it as irrelevant. That would be a mistake. It's therefore important to call sites like Snopes out when they play their deceptive "fact check" games. That's what the site's Bethania Palma definitely did in discussing a claim about California's recently-passed water-use legislation.
Appearing on the Wednesday edition of FBN’s Making Money, MRC President Brent Bozell ripped the liberal media and CNN in particular for their advanced case of Trump Derangement Syndrome showing with their “embarrassing” and “insulting” “gossip” about First Lady Melania Trump’s health.
MRC Director of Media Analysis and NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham stopped by the Thursday edition of the Fox Business Network’s The Evening Edit and tore into claims by MSNBC host Chris Hayes and Chris Matthews that condemned Trump voters as racist and Republicans as golf-swinging, Wall Street Journal-reading, and sports-watching enthusiasts.
On Maria Bartiromo's Wednesday morning Fox Business Network show, the host asked Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson to respond a Tuesday Washington Examiner op-ed by Alveda King, a longtime pro-life activist and niece of Martin Luther King Jr. King contended that if Starbucks is "really serious about eliminating racism," it will "stop funding" Planned Parenthood.
Joining Fox Business Network host Elizabeth MacDonald on the Wednesday edition of her new show The Evening Edit, the Media Research Center’s Research Director Rich Noyes spoke about the liberal media’s blatant “double standard” when it came to Iran deal coverage, trusting Barack Obama but not Donald Trump, and his latest study about negative network Trump coverage.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Wednesday appeared on Fox Business to decry the unrelentingly negative coverage Donald Trump has endured in the first four months of 2018. According to a new MRC study, 90 percent of the President’s network press has been hostile. Bozell explained: “They simply are not going to say anything positive about him.... They have no vested interest in objectivity.”
The liberal media have loved to air intense speculation about the possibility of Russian collusion with the Trump administration. It’s been almost non-stop. But when it comes to President Donald Trump’s recent toughness against Russia — expelling 60 diplomats — they’re far less interested.
The ongoing struggle between Democrats and Republicans over illegal immigration took a major turn on Monday, when Thomas Homan -- acting director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency -- sharply criticized House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Pelosi for drawing a bright line against the federal lawsuit alleging California is nullifying federal law enforcement on immigration. She said "We will fight this sham lawsuit and will fight all cowardly attacks on our immigrant communities.”
MRC President Brent Bozell on Thursday attended a White House meeting with Donald Trump to discuss violence in video games. Talking to Fox Business’s Charles Payne, Bozell said of the meeting: “I promise you, if you saw some of the violence we saw today on some of these games, you wouldn't allow it on your network. But why then are millions of children watching it?”
With the Dow Jones Industrial Average taking another nosedive on Monday, the MRC’s Rich Noyes joined Neil Cavuto’s eponymous Fox Business Network program to discuss the findings of a study by MRC Business’s Julia Seymour that found a massive double standard from the major broadcast networks on stock market increases vs. tumbles.
Following up his statement blasting the liberal media’s reaction to the State of the Union, MRC President Brent Bozell told the Fox Business Network’s Liz MacDonald on Thursday night that President Trump “hit three home runs” talking about America in the mold of Ronald Reagan while Democrats and the media condemned it because “they hate” and “despise him.”
