A conservative media watchdog group is launching a $5 million campaign against the mainstream media, which it accused of "covering up the failures of the Obama presidency and attacking every Republican presidential candidate one-by-one."
Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell announced the organization's campaign in the video above. The purpose of the campaign, he said, was to battle "an onslaught of character assassination against anyone who dares to challenge Obama."
Bozell praised Newt Gingrich's rant against the "elite media," saying, "One of the candidates finally confronted the media on their blatant bias, and Americans stood up and cheered."
Apart from MRC's work documenting alleged instances of liberal bias, the campaign will consist of signs, bumper stickers, billboards, traditional advertising and social media telling people, "Don't believe the liberal media." The organization has touted the appearance of the signs in several news sources. Bozell said that MRC has raised over $3 million for the $5 million campaign, which will include "the largest social media effort ever undertaken by conservatives."
