Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared on Fox News, Monday, to slam the New York Times for smearing Scott Walker as dumb. After Your World guest host Stuart Varney noted the paper claimed the Republican was "aiming for smart," Bozell informed, "They're targeting every Republican. It's the standard fare for the New York Times." He added, "Look at the way they treated Ronald Reagan. It's the constant narrative that conservatives really aren't very intelligent people." The MRC president explained that the paper constantly thinks conservatives need "tutorials." Regarding the double standard of how they treat liberals, Bozell joked, "You know, I wish Barack Obama had spent more time on tutorials and less time playing golf. His knowledge of foreign affairs might be enhanced."
During the Thursday afternoon edition of Your World With Neil Cavuto, the Fox News Channel business host responded to the accusation from Jon Stewart of Comedy Central's The Daily Show that the people at Fox “hate poor people.”
“I think he's very fast on his feet even if he sometimes gives me a few good kicks,” Cavuto said about Stewart. “That's fine. I can take it and take him. What I can't take is this: that we at Fox actually hate the poor. Now, even by Jon Stewart's Fox-bashing comedic standards, that's a little rich and more than a little unfair.”
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell joined the Fox News Channel’s Neil Cavuto Thursday afternoon during his show Your World to blast the biased media coverage against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “the height of unprofessionalism” and challenged Republican presidential contenders to demand the “end [to] this hostility towards Israel.”
Appearing on the Fox News Channel’s (FNC) Your World with Neil Cavuto on Wednesday, Media Reserach Center President Brent Bozell reacted to dual news stories surrounding ObamaCare and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as “business as usual” for an “out of control” administration ruling “government by fiat.”
The first story came on February 20 that 800,000 ObamaCare enrollees had received incorrect tax information and then followed by news on Tuesday that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has allowed enrollees to keep extra money on their refunds due to the taxing error.
Thursday on his Your World show, host Neil Cavuto went after the Obama administration's near obsession with the coverage it gets on Fox News.
While Team Obama can count on the Big Three triumvirate of ABC, CBS and NBC to toe the line, promoting its points while generally avoiding damning information, Fox has generally remained fair and balanced, an approach which has clearly gotten under their ultra-thin skins.
The deadly Islamist terror attack last week against French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is forcing many in the media to make hard choices about reporting on or portraying Islam. Showtime’s primetime drama “Homeland,” which deals with terrorist plots threatening the U.S., is weighing the decision to avoid any plots dealing with Islamic terror in the upcoming season, Entertainment Weekly and the Daily Mail reported.
According to Showtime President David Nevins, the show’s writers might take a break from the show’s central conflicts between Muslim and U.S. relations in the upcoming fifth season and may find a new international threat instead, “for creative reasons.” Fox News’ Sean Hannity blasted the decision as the “exactly the worse thing to do” that “empowers” terrorists, using the backlash from the Sony Pictures “The Interview” debacle as a similar example.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently slammed the U.S. news media as obsessed with celebrity and more driven by entertainment than hard news.
Of course she's right, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell noted on the April 24 edition of Fox News's Your World with Neil Cavuto, but added that it's even worse than that. The liberal media are actively censoring legitimate, hard news stories, many of which would likely harm Mrs. Clinton's presidential prospects in 2016 were they seriously pursued on national television (watch video below page break):
What's not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson's a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto's Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh's attention.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared with Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto to slam the "obnoxious" double standard in how journalists have covered Chris Christie's traffic scandal in two days, versus the scant number of stories on the Obama IRS controversy over six months.
According to Bozell, "It really goes to show you how out of control this left wing so-called news press is." [See video below. MP3 audio here.] Cavuto explained, "The big three networks alone devoted 17 times more coverage to this story in one day, one day, than they devoted to the IRS scandal in six months." An updated analysis my the MRC finds the disparity is now up to 44-to-one.
Fox News host Stuart Varney embarrassed Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday’s Your World with Neil Cavuto, using archived video to expose the congressman’s hypocrisy on the debt limit. Rangel supported raising the debt limit before today’s deadline, of course, but back in 2004, with Republican George W. Bush in the White House, he sang a different tune.
Varney, filling in for Cavuto, set Rangel up by asking him why he wanted to borrow so much money now. Rangel ignored the question, instead expressing his glee at the deal the Senate had reached. He exclaimed, “[W]e have kicked the can down the road and I'm happy.” Varney then made his play: [Watch the video below the break.]
"With all the talk that took place" during the Bush administration "on Iraq about the need for congressional approval, before there was a military strike, have you heard anyone in the media question how unilaterally Barack Obama can decide to send us to war [in Syria] without congressional approval?" NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell asked Neil Cavuto on the August 26 edition of his Fox News Channel program Your World. Cavuto opened the segment by noting that many in the media were prodding Obama to use unilateral military action against Syria for having crossed a "red line" by deploying chemical weapons.
There's also the fact that "this administration, [and their] foreign policy is an incoherent mess, " Bozell added, noting that in 2011, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hailed Syrian dictator Bashar Assad as a "reformer," something the liberal media are not reminding the American public about now. "No one's asking the question, 'Do you folks in this administration have any idea what you're doing?!'" [watch the full segment below the page break]
Conceivably the best line uttered by a member of the media this week concerning the sequester debate came from Fox News's Neil Cavuto Friday
In a Your World discussion about the budget deliberations with Congressman Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), Cavuto marvelously said, "It seems that your Party lies a lot."
