Media Research Center
The New York congresswoman says Republicans are doing her a favor with the video.
The Fox News host assailed those who backed out of honoring him as "Never Trumpers."
Trump and the MRC really are in this together.
Trump himself is mainly responsible for inspiring this ugly behavior by his supporters. But hatred of the media has been the right-wing Media Research Center's core belief for decades.
Because this dishonesty plays into the hands of the right-wing narrative about the evil "liberal media," the right-wing media will stick with the clickbait headline and ignore the dubious contents.
The solicitation doesn't explain why a wealthy organization like the MRC -- which raised more than $15 million in 2015 -- can't pony up a measly $15,000 to edit and promote footage they've already shot.
CNSNews.com, the "news" division of the right-wing Media Research Center, claims in its mission statement that it's "a news source for individuals, news organizations and broadcasters who put a higher premium on balance than spin." That's a total lie. CNS is interested only in spin.
When the shooting that killed three at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic occurred, the folks at CNSNews.com, the "news" division of the right-wing Media Research Center, knew what it had to do: change the narrative.
Echoing the attacks by Republican presidential candidates on the moderators of the CNBC-hosted debate, Media Research Center chief Brent Bozell ranted: "The CNBC debate will go down in history as an encyclopedic example of liberal media bias on stage." But there was one thing missing from Bozell's declaration: the encyclopedia.
Journalists try to gather information. Protesters try to push buttons. Sam Dorman's admission that he was trying to push a button on Pelosi and provoke the response he got is all the evidence we need that he was in protest mode, not journalist mode.
The problem with the MRC's silence is that because it's been so close to Coulter in the past, they have ownership in her anti-Semitic remarks. In this case, silence can only be interpreted as assent.
When Ted Cruz dismissed Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly's questions to him on immigration as something a "liberal journalist" would ask, the right-wing Media Research Center applauded it. After all, that evasion tactic is straight from the MRC playbook.
What has the right-wing Media Research Center's "media research" been reduced to these days? Complaining that a story is accurately reported in the media.
If Bozell wants to set an example Williams should follow and prove that his words have meaning instead of being empty partisan attacks, he should abjectly apologize for deceiving the public for years -- Bozell has yet to speak publicly about his years-long deception -- and resign as Media Research Center president.
If Attkisson wasn't doing conservative-friendly things, the MRC wouldn't be so eager and desperate to defend her. If Attkisson had gone after a Republican president the way she has President Obama, Bozell and Graham would not be so effusively singing her praises.
Sometimes the double standards employed by the right-wing Media Research Center are breathtaking in their blatantness.
